Catching Up With the Clippers

I for one miss our old friend DP. He left us for greener pastures, but his legacy lives on. No, I’m not going to talk about the Columbus Blue Jackets, but with the Tribe on an off-day yesterday, I thought it would be a good time to check in with DP’s very own AAA Columbus

Indians Spring Training Battles: The Fifth Starter

Jeanmar Gomez

When the entire Fausto Carmona identity situation came to light, the Indians were left with a dilemma. Should they look for outside alternatives to fill the new void at the fifth spot in the rotation or should they consider the in-house candidates that were expected to start the season at AAA Columbus?

MLB Trade Rumors: Would You Trade Travis Hafner for A.J. Burnett?

aj-burnett-verducci

I love Hot Stove talk. Pitchers and catchers report in less than two weeks and it appears as if the Indians are still looking to improve their roster. With Asdrubal Cabrera signing his one-year deal on Friday avoiding arbitration, the Tribe has everyone under contract for the 2012 season….and that’s it. It’s now the worst

Can Kevin Slowey Replace “Fausto Carmona”?

mlb_g_slowey_200

Other than noting the unfortunate nature of the whole story, I don’t have much to say about the pitcher formerly known as Fausto.  From what I can gather, it sounds like he’s not going to make it to Spring Training.  Which, I believe, means he’ll be put on the “restricted” list, a form of MLB

Fausto Roughed Up in 9-3 loss to Twins

The Indians opened the season with another sub .500 April that came to an end last night in a lopsided loss to the Minnesota Twins, putting the Tribe at 9-13 for the month.  A lack of timely hitting, poor pitching, and sub standard defense typically lead to losses against one of the best teams in

Twins 5 Indians 1: Cabrera’s Error The Game Changer

Stat of the night coming in: The Indians, a noted below-average defensive team over the past few years, had committed just four errors in their first 12 games. One of those errors, a Jhonny Peralta butchered two-out, bases loaded throw in Detroit, was the difference in a 5-2 loss 12 days ago. History would repeat
