What I believe about the 2015 Cleveland Indians

Original: Chuck Crow/Plain Dealer

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

Grantland: Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, and Danny Salazar poised for breakout seasons

Carlos Carrasco Cleveland Indians

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

Cleveland Indians pitching rotation ranked tenth best

Corey Kluber Cleveland Indians

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

Tribe Weekend Recap: Its all about the pitching

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

Tribe Weekend Recap: Dominant starting pitching, slumbering bats, and Ubaldo being Ubaldo

Carlos Carrasco

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

Tribe blasted by Reds for second straight night

The Battle of Ohio packed up and headed from Cleveland to Cincinnati last night. The Reds carried over their “big homers from non-homer hitters” act, and the Indians were silent with the bats until the eighth inning when it was far too late. When it looked like the Indians might just dip their toes into

Tribe Weekend Recap: Brooms, Good Guys, and Great Pitching

David Murphy

Do I say the same thing every three weeks or so? Just when you think you are out, this team sucks you right back in. Terry Francona’s Cleveland Indians are not the sexiest group, nor are they the most talented. Their starting pitching is essentially Corey Kluber, hoping for the best with two youngsters, then

Tribe Weekend Recap: Santana streaking, rotation turning, and opportunities blown

Carlos Santana

The Indians couldn’t have picked a worse week to wet themselves. I’ve said this before and I will say it again: The only consistent thing about this team is their inconsistency. Just when you want to believe after they take three of four in Detroit, they come out and lose two of three to the

Is Danny Salazar back?

It seems longer ago, but all it took was a mid-July afternoon on the corner of Carnegie and Ontario. I sat next to TD, roughly thirty yards from the pitchers mound housed within Progressive Field, as Danny Salazar made his Major League debut. I had planned to only stay for a few innings, spending what

The Indians at the break: The Bad

Justin Masterson

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

‘Bauer Outage’ could spark subpar Tribe starters

Trevor Bauer

Trevor Bauer finally looks like he’s getting his pro career on track and living up to the expectations that come with being the No. 3 overall draft pick. Ranked as the ninth best prospect by Baseball America after the 2011 season, Bauer sank to 83rd after a disappointing 2013 campaign in which the re-tooling of

Danny Salazar gets lit up in Columbus

Danny Salazar

While Trevor Bauer will attempt to keep things rolling against Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night, recently demoted starting pitcher Danny Salazar did himself no favors this afternoon when he was tagged for five runs on six hits and three walks over 2 2/3 innings for the Columbus Clippers. Salazar threw 42 out of 70
