The genesis for these articles was spawned from one of my alltime favorite WFNY running articles (Anderson Varejao Enthusiasm Charts from Denny Mayo). Denny has graciously allowed me to completely mangle it by extending the concept to the Indians and the player who wears his emotions as outwardly as anyone ever has. To see exactly
I do not know much about the Cleveland Indians, and I want to change that. At some point within the past handful of years, I decided that baseball wasn’t my cup of tea anymore. The season was too long, as were the games that comprised it. I had gotten used to steroid-era stats, and couldn’t adjust to
We have estimated in the past that only about ten percent of what we gather in Spring Training is actually useful. As such, I have been taking accounts of what I have witnessed during Spring Training. I will write what I believe, you can determine what truly matters, and I will hope to surpass the
The Cleveland Indians starting rotation has been a popular topic for the sporting world as they prepare for the 2015 MLB season. Corey Kluber winning the Cy Young has been referenced by nearly everyone writing a breakout candidate column and Danny Salazar has already been named a sleeper Cy Young candidate for this season despite
Grantland’s Jonah Keri is a big fan of the Cleveland Indians this season, so much so that he recently placed them among the top five teams in baseball. With a Cy Young candidate for an ace, an MVP candidate in left field and one of the best catchers in the game, this makes sense. But
The Cleveland Indians have a pretty good track record of avoiding arbitration and coming to agreements. They won’t have any problem continuing that reputation as they’ve reportedly come to deals with Marc Rzepczynski, Carlos Carrasco and Lonnie Chisenhall for one-year deals. .@Indians, LHP Marc Rzepczynski ($2.4M) and RHP Carlos Carrasco ($2.3M) avoid arbitration with 1-year
Buster Olney of ESPN is ranking MLB starting rotations as we get closer and closer to pitchers and catchers reporting. The Cleveland Indians staff was really strong in the second half of last season, obviously led by eventual Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. That means that the Tribe’s rotation is decent no matter what, but
The 2014 season is over and the Indians finished in third place in the AL Central. But there’s plenty to look forward to.
The Royals are scoring runs and playing defense; the Indians are not.
Because who doesn’t want JB Shuck batting in the bottom of the ninth inning of a must-win game?
I hate to be this guy, but I cannot wait to watch this pitching staff next season.
The Tribe’s starting rotation continues to carry them into the final few weeks of the regular season.
Carlos Carrasco makes history, but it’s not enough for the Tribe. We live blog the loss.
No matter how many times you want to bury the Tribe, or how many times they seem to try and bury themselves, they just keep coming back and winning the series. A night after losing a game they should have won with their ace Corey Kluber on the mound, it was up to Carlos
September is just about here. Time is running short for our Wahoos, but they refuse to give into the fight. (Eric Wedge would be so proud.) With their schedule in Soft Mode, the Tribe had to take advantage of what was in front of them. They started their nine-game stretch with three of the AL’s
This weekend series was once again another example of what this 2014 Cleveland Indians team is all about. The AL East leading Baltimore Orioles came to town with the biggest margin of any division top dog in baseball. Their offense is beastly, with power up and down the lineup. So naturally the story of the
Win four straight. Lose four straight. Get everyone thinking that, once again, you are sunk. Lose two more veterans to the disabled list. Go to New York and visit Yankee Stadium, your personal house of horrors, and take the series for the first time since 2008 while throwing 20 straight scoreless innings. Yep, just your
If your Cleveland Indians were going to get back in the thick of the AL Central and Wild Card races, coming out of the blocks strongly is of the utmost importance. An 11-game, three-city road trip against three divisional foes was on the schedule. Things got started in Detroit with four games in three days.
Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco deserve equal billing at the top. What they did last night on a hazy summer evening at Progressive Field can be described in one word: gritty. Two of the four guys who battled for the fifth starter job in Goodyear in March combined to shutdown the dangerous Los Angeles Angels
$1 hot dogs. Michael Bourn Bobbleheads. Johnny Freaking Manziel (and Justin Gilbert too!). Two hour and 28 minute rain delay. Bunting. Strikeouts. Leads. Preening Papi. Comebacks. Replays. Carlos Freaking Carrasco. More bunting. Edward Freaking Mujica. Walk off homer at 2:02 AM. What did I miss? The details, my friends….the details. How about your Cleveland Indians,
