The Cleveland Indians have announced details for Tribe Fest 2015, to be held at Progressive Field on January 24 and 25. The annual fan-centric event — the third bearing the Tribe Fest name — will offer the opportunity for Indians supporters to meet and get autographs from current players as well as Tribe alumni. From
Each November, Major League Baseball teams are faced with the difficult task of protecting certain players from the consequences of the Rule 5 draft. On Thursday, the Cleveland Indians were one of the first teams to announce their protected players. In total, the Indians are protecting five prized minor leagues by adding them to their
Today should be a good day at WFNY, folks. We’ve got some of the new kids and infrequent writers in charge with Craig on vacation and Scott on a work trip. Hope you can put up with us for the day. Assorted Cavs-Spurs thoughts: The Cavs, a currently mediocre team, lost by two points to
It’s not basketball and he doesn’t work at Yahoo, but I’m going to go ahead and call Ken Rosenthal’s news drop on the Cleveland Indians a Wojbomb anyway. FOX Sports’ Rosenthal indicates that the Tribe front office is exploring a wide range of options, including trading the king of Brohio, Nick Swisher. Now, to be clear, the
Giovany Urshela was one of the surprise prospects in the Cleveland Indians organization in 2014. The third baseman appeared to have an outside shot for a possible major league roster spot next season. But an injured knee in the Venezuelan Winter League could cast that in serious doubt. Urshela, a 23-year-old native of Colombia, injured
How often are the Cleveland Indians in the news during the middle of November? In addition to having two players listed as finalists for the game’s biggest awards—and one of them winning—the Tribe continues to make waves. While this will not be something that fans will be able to quantify on the field, the 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
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.
Would Ubaldo JImenez in an Indians uniform again frighten you?
It’s Wednesday, and your boy is back. I spent last week in Orlando for a work conference. Let me just say there is nothing worse than landing at home after a week on the road on a Friday night at 9:45. I watched Thursday night’s Cleveland Browns from the road at a random bar and was
If you Tribe fans ever dreamed of having Justin Upton on the Cleveland Indians, it’s time to hit the snooze button and dream of someone else. Justin Upton has apparently decided pre-emptively, via his no-trade clause, that he really doesn’t want to be traded to the North Coast to play for the Cleveland Indians. He
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
No playoffs, but can two Indians bring home some hardware?
Unfinished business? Apparently so as the Cleveland Indians and manager Terry Francona have agreed to a two-year contract extension that includes club options for 2019 and 2020. “I really didn’t want to move on from here,” Francona said through a team-released video. “You watch every manager in their first press conference and they say all
Though we’re still a few months away from the first glove pops of spring training, Fangraphs has gone ahead and named the Cleveland Indians as their “far too early sleeper team” for the 2015 season.
Asdrubal Cabrera may be gone, but the path the bigs isn’t exactly clear.
I apologize in advance for the technical difficulties. After trying to edit some out and trying to fix others, I chose to give you new content at the expense of a professional sounding broadcast. We strive to be better, but Skype just wasn’t cooperating today. We talked about LeBron James and the Cavaliers and the
The ultra-slim chances that I had as a Cleveland Indians fan to have Victor Martinez back in a Tribe uniform have gotten even slimmer. If the Indians’ own self-professed budgetary constraints this off-season weren’t enough, the rumor mill states that Victor prefers to stay in Detroit and will give them every chance to sign him
