Looking at Paul DePodesta’s own writing from 2003 in search of greater insight into his philosophies and how he might help the Cleveland Browns.
The Indians added another veteran bullpen arm in Dan Otero and DFA’d Jerry Sands to make room on the 40-man roster.
By the time this post is read, it might be out of date. The MLB Hot Stove can twist and turn in an instant. Perhaps, the Cleveland Indians will have awoken from their winter slumber to have made key signings or a significant trade to improve the outlook on the 2016 team. Alas, as the
The Cleveland Indians are reportedly interested in trading for Oakland Athletics infielder Brett Lawrie.
The Cleveland Indians traveled westward to Oakland, California for a four-game series against the AL-worst Oakland Athletics with the hopes of continuing their momentum from a 12-run outburst against the Kansas City Royals in the last game of an otherwise miserable homestand1 . The pitching remained golden in the Golden State; however, the lineup brought
The Martians, the Zombies and the Mindless Marauders have been defeated. We’re safe … for now. Near the beginning of the Indians game against the Royals on Wednesday, STO play-by-play man Matt Underwood asked his partner Rick Manning if, when he was still playing, an Indians losing streak was perceived as an end-of-the-world scenario as it’s portrayed
The Cleveland Indians ended the first half of the 2015 season the exact same way they started it—unable to generate any run support for Corey Kluber in a 2-0 loss. Back on April 6, it would have been silly to look at Kluber’s first unjust 2-0 setback against the lowly Astros as any sort of
The 2014 MLB Winter Meetings week is here! There has been lots of speculation and rumors already leading up the the convention of GMs, agents, and players looking for work that will take place at the Hilton Bayfront in beautiful San Diego, California. What, you thought it was going to be in Milwaukee? Every team comes to
I really don’t even know what to say about this team right now. I have been searching for positives from this horrific weekend series where the Oakland Athletics did their best Harlem Globetrotters impression while the Cleveland Indians donned the uniforms of the Washington Generals. They didn’t hit. They committed more errors (7) than runs
There is nothing worse than fans freaking out over one game. But the first of the two in Oakland yesterday was one of those of those examples. I’m going to say this once – it’s ONE GAME. Scott Kazmir, whom the Indians let walk after resurrecting his career in Cleveland last season, spent his afternoon
To borrow a phrase from the great George Costanza, I stayed up late to watch the Tribe start their season and “yada yada, I am very tired today.” It rained all day in Oakland and getting this game in looked bleak most of the day. But the baseball Gods usually arrive on Opening Day. They
Though acquiring arms at a rapid pace, it appears that the Oakland Athletics are looking to trade starting pitcher Brett Anderson. Per ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Cleveland Indians are reportedly one of the few teams interested in acquiring the 25-year-old southpaw. Oakland is said to be working through Brett Anderson trade possibilities; Seattle and Cleveland
The Oakland Athletics are close to signing free agent lefty starter Scott Kazmir, reports Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. Moments after, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reported that the deal will be for two years. ESPN’s Jim Bowden later confirmed that the deal will be for $22 million. Kazmir, 29, was not extended a qualifying offer by
The Diff is your weekly WFNY look into the amazing world of sports statistics. This is my 41st edition of The Diff. For a complete log of articles, click this link. Last week, I injected some stats into a Cavs rotation projection. This week, I’m writing about 2014 Indians salary issues. For many, talking about
Scott: With the Athletics playing the Tigers in a four-game set, who should Indians fans be rooting for? Presently, Cleveland is 5.5 games behind Detroit in the division “race”, while standing just two games behind Oakland for the second Wild Card. Theoretically, if the As sweep and the Tribe handles the Tigers, the AL Central
Another week and another huge series came upon our Cleveland Indians. This time, it wasn’t a division foe, but rather one of the teams they were facing for one of the two AL Wild Card spots in the Oakland Athletics. The A’s are a lot like the Indians in that their offense leaves a lot to be
The Indians just keep the train rollin’. They do it with power. They do it with some speed. They do it with solid defense. They do it with a lock down bullpen. They do it with quality starting pitching. Wait….what did I just say? Yes, that’s right, they do it with solid starting pitching. A
The Indians very well might not have been able to sweep the Oakland A’s this afternoon had Angel Hernandez and his crew of umpires made the proper call on a home run replay last night. That’s the statement from MLB and Joe Torre today. “By rule, the decision to reverse a call by use of
When this series with Oakland began, I wrote that umpire Angel Hernandez was arguably the second worst umpire in the game behind C.C. Bucknor. Tonight, the crew chief was at second base. Three nights ago he did the Tribe a favor when he didn’t toss Oakland starter Jarrod Parker for throwing at the head of Mark
7:33 PM – A bit late getting started here, but luckily we haven’t missed much. Through two innings, both Zach McAllister and Tommy Milone are perfect. 7:35 PM – Oh look. Mike Aviles is playing left field tonight. That’s weird. I remember thinking when they traded for Aviles that it was all but certain that
