Francisco Lindor led the way for the Cleveland Indians’ huge 7-3 win over the visiting Detroit Tigers on Tuesday. WFNY takes the scouting profile approach to the recap.
In a third straight game decided by one run, the Cleveland Indians salvaged their series with the Twins, as the beleaguered bullpen held on for a 6-5 win.
Carlos Carrasco dominates in another start while Francisco Lindor flashed more leather in the field.
The verdicts are in: The New York Mets had some help from the sun and Bryan Shaw this weekend, taking two of three from your Cleveland Indians.
The Cleveland Indians make more noise for their postponed games and drone strikes than games played. And what was that, Bryan Shaw? We have a few options in the way of names.
A right-handed hitting corner outfielder, but mayyybe not one you were hoping for.
Corey Kluber getting left off of the American League All-Star team has left many analysts who favor advanced statistics baffled, as he is having another strong season when looking at stats like FIP, WAR, K%, SIERA, among others1 . Of course, when looking at his record (4-9 personal record or 5-13 team record when he starts)
The Tribe needed multiple wins, but Bryan Shaw had other ideas.
When you score five runs, you should win the game. The Indians were on their way to doing so last night, but one of their more reliable and consistent pitchers made two quick mistakes and a comeback victory was snatched away as the Seattle Mariners took the rubber match of the three-game series, 6-5, on
47-47. .500. The middle. Average. Not great, but not bad. This is what our Cleveland Indians are as we sit here at the All-Star break. Heading into the season, Terry Francona’s group had to deal with something that was not on the docket a year before; heightened expectations. Coming off of a 92-win, Wild Card
Trevor Bauer is a beast. I know the stats might not say so, but my man is one heck of a pitcher. We may look back at the trade of Shin-Soo Choo for Bauer and reliever Bryan Shaw (among others) in the same vain as Bartolo Colon trade. I know that is crazy talk, but
Last year, the Indians were “Team Streak.” This year, the PD’s Paul Hoynes has dubbed them “Team Clank” thanks to their tendency to commit errors at the worst times. I think they are a combination of both. We have seen the full arsenal of good and bad over the past two weeks. An on fire
On paper, this one seemed like a mismatch. But as a wise man once said “that’s why they play the games.” Coming off the series opening win a night earlier, the Indians turned to rookie Trevor Bauer to take his first trek through the rotation as a regular. On the other side was Detroit’s Justin
The Indians wild ride has come to an end. The 2013 season was one that nobody expected. A 96 loss team turned into a 92 win club that advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2007. GM Chris Antonetti and Manager Terry Francona helped changed the culture of the organization and has our
What a difference a year makes. Cleveland starter Ubaldo Jimenz was named the American League’s Pitcher of the Month for September on Monday. “Jimenez compiled a perfect 4-0 record in six starts in September with a 1.09 ERA, seven walks and 51 strikeouts over 41.1 innings pitched to claim his third career monthly award, previously
It’s not like many fans didn’t see this coming, right? Perhaps not the 89-70 record, but maybe the Chris Perez demise? Here we are. Three games left in the regular season. The Cleveland Indians are on the verge of the playoffs and, it appears that with last night’s performance, Perez might be out of a
Shortly after last night’s incredible ninth-inning comeback, former WFNY weekend man Brendan Porath nudged the WFNY staff: Let’s do a roundtable about Chris Perez. So here we are, again, talking about the controversial closer’s role for the rest of 2013. Share your takes in the comments. Brendan: So, Jason Giambi delivered one of the most
It was Lou Brown who said it best: “One day we are gonna figure out how to beat those guys.” The last three games against the first place Detroit Tigers have been absolutely demoralizing to say the least. I don’t know what it is, but every time they have seen the Indians this season, the
We have arrived at baseball’s All-Star break. The Cleveland Indians sit at 51-44, a game and a half out of first place in the AL Central. It has been quite a ride since GM Chris Antonetti hired Terry Francona to manage this club. The shot had been fired – a change in culture was about to arrive
Last night in Baltimore the Indians played a game that made you proud to root for this team. Watching them battle, execute, and eventually win this one was another example of why this particular group can be easy to love. Sure, for the first five innings you probably didn’t feel this way and I can
