Cy Kluber and the Trades That Built the Tribe

Corey Kluber Cleveland Indians

In the seven o’clock hour Wednesday night, Cleveland’s own Corey Kluber, the out-of-nowhere ace of the Indians, was named the AL Cy Young Award winner. Kluber’s 2014 season was legendary and the best part of it was almost nobody saw it coming. As his teammates will all tell you, nobody works harder and deserves this

Cy Kluber, Cavs Zine, and #JakeyStats: While We’re Waiting…

Cleveland Sports

Happy Thursday, WFNYers! I’m pinch-hitting for Jacob today as he learns how to quack properly out in Oregon.. or something like that. Speaking of which, let’s start with that Jacob guy. Yesterday, Krossover named him one of the #RisingStars in Sports Analytics. Most everybody around these parts already knew that, but it’s really neat to

Corey Kluber narrowly wins 2014 American League Cy Young Award

Corey Kluber Cleveland Indians

Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber had an absolutely tremendous year. It was one of the best pitching seasons in franchise history. And just by a nose, he defeated Seattle star Felix Hernandez to win the American League Cy Young award. The honor is the third given to an Indians pitcher in just eight seasons. C.C.

Michael Brantley and Corey Kluber save Indians season: While We’re Waiting…

Cleveland Sports

The Cleveland Indians have won 92 and 85 games the last two seasons. I don’t think I’ve seen enough recognizing them for that very difficult accomplishment. And I have no idea where the franchise would be today without the insane development of two stars. Entering this season, Michael Brantley was a mostly mediocre outfielder. I

When you read this, I’ll still be sleeping (Pacific Coast time!) just before my fourth day of MBA classes. It’s certainly been information overload. The two weeks

Joe is a brilliant guitarist and musician, but he also is about as knowledgable a Cleveland Indians fan that I know.

One week left, Tribe still hangin’ around

Cleveland Indians Michael Bourn

I know I know: The Cleveland Browns should have won. But hey, look on the bright side, their baseball counterparts, the Cleveland Indians, will enter the last week of the regular season within striking distance of the playoffs. You can tell me that it is a long shot, but with the three games—plus three outs—to

They are back. They are right in the thick of it. And they aren’t going anywhere. Your Cleveland Indians, left for dead by almost everyone, continue to win and are surging into September.

White Sox 3, Indians 2: Jose Abreu is really, really good

This one was supposed to go down differently. With the Chicago White Sox playing well-below .500 ball, being kept afloat in the AL Central by only the Minnesota Twins, and the Cleveland Indians streaking off of their fourth straight win, Corey Kluber’s mere presence on the mound in the south side of Chicago should have cemented the Tribe’s

Twins 4, Indians 1: Bats go silent as sweep chance goes by the board

This is what is so frustrating about our Indians. Here they are, winners of seven of nine, going for a sweep of the Minnesota Twins with their ace Corey Kluber on the mound and the offense can’t even muster a single scoring chance outside of a solo blast from Zach Walters. Despite the 4-1 loss
