Going into Tuesday night’s game against the Texas Rangers, it had been mentioned but not truly quantified that the Cleveland Indians offense has been much improved during the month of May. Much of the offensive improvement is rightfully attributed to the outstanding month of Jason Kipnis, but the overall team statistics have risen more than
Had this game been played in Cleveland, one could only assume they would have dropped confetti from the upper deck. The Indians have won three in a row! It’s their first such string of the entire season, but more importantly, the low-stress 5-2 win over the White Sox Thursday night gave the Tribe an honest-to-gosh
After losing two out of three to both the Twins and Cardinals in the just-ended six-game homestand, the Cleveland Indians head to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in Texas to face the Rangers in a Friday-Saturday-Sunday series. The Texas series is the first leg of a two-city, seven-game road trip that will conclude with four games
The 2015 Cleveland Indians season has been frustrating to follow thus far. The season began with lofty expectations propped up by the team becoming the national darlings of the now analytic-friendly media. The Indians even managed to win their opening series against the Houston Astros who have unexpectedly been one of the best teams in
While you were distracted by various thrilling, high-stakes buzzer beaters this weekend, your Cleveland Indians quietly lost two out of three to an inexplicably red hot Minnesota Twins club, salvaging some pride with a dominant Danny Salazar effort in an 8-2 win on Sunday. Overall, the Tribe has now gone 32 days without winning a
Finally, Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona unveiled what many fans of the have been waiting for all season. No, Francisco Lindor is still in Columbus where he should be (for now). Yes, Nick Swisher making his 2015 debut, serving as a gauge of how healthy or productive he can be for the team. In fact, Nick’s
The Cleveland Indians came into the 2015 season supposedly offensively superior to the Kansas City Royals, especially when considering power hitting. The Royals invested so many resources into their defense and bullpen that it was thought to have left them a bit short at the plate. The Royals have been the better team at the
Well, I guess you’d have to be pretty gullible to think a Major League baseball team could hit a collective .186 with runners in scoring position for almost three whole weeks and not be just joshin’ ya. Give the Indians credit for sticking with that extended April Fools Day charade for as long as they
The good news going into the Cleveland Indians’ fourth series of 2015 was that they weren’t scheduled to face any left-handed starters. The bad news is that it didn’t seem to matter. They still couldn’t hit. Over the three games in Minneapolis, the Twins started Mike Pelfrey, Phil Hughes, and Trevor May, all righties. They
With Carlos Carrasco (somehow) only needing an extra day of rest before his next start following a line drive striking him in his face Tuesday night, the Cleveland Indians had to make a decision on how to handle the mound on Saturday for Game 2 in Minnesota. In turn, they have recalled starting pitcher Danny Salazar
The Cleveland Indians have optioned pitcher Danny Salazar to Class AAA Columbus. This means Zach McAllister, T.J. House and Josh Tomlin will fight for the final two rotations spots for the Indians. The team has their first three rotation spots settled with Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer, so these final two spots will need to be decided
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’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
Update: WEWS NewsChannel 5 was first to report that no charges will be filed against Danny Salazar. #BreakingNews: No charges will be filed against @Indians pitcher Danny Salazar in accusations of sexual assault, according to @CLEpolice — WEWS NewsChannel5 (@WEWS) February 4, 2015 Police just told me City Prosecutor has seen evidence & has decided
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 Royals are scoring runs and playing defense; the Indians are not.
Thank you, Jose Ramirez. You too, video replay.
The Cleveland Indians now sit four games back of the second AL Wild Card spot.
Danny Salazar gives the Indians a much-needed lift against the Tigers. We live-blogged it.
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
