Wednesday was why Tuesday’s game hurt so bad. The margin for error with the Cleveland Indians postseason chances is too thin to allow potential wins to slip away as there will still be some games that just do not go well from the beginning. Wednesday was just such a day as the Toronto Blue Jays
The Indians have had a losing record for nearly five whole months. After Monday’s win, they deserve to remember what being over .500 feels like.
September often becomes a game of chutes and ladders for MLB hopefuls.
Fare thee well, Mark.
The Boston Red Sox made waves with the Cleveland Indians on the field when it was announced that highly touted general manager Dave Dombrowski was joining their front office. Now, it could be the Indians’ turn to dance in the wake of front office news and rumors with Ken Rosenthal is reporting Mark Shapiro’s name could find
Carlos Carrasco is the latest Cleveland Indian to see his name floated on the trade market, as Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Cleveland Indians have been listening to offers for their starting pitchers. He goes on to state that conversations centered around Carlos Carrasco have been had between the Indians and the Toronto
Ordinarily it would be a difficult case to make that a major league baseball team is playing with its back against the wall on May 3. But on Sunday, in the fourth inning, already having lost two of three in a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Cleveland Indians were doing just that.
Stop me if you heard this one before. A soft tossing lefty who hasn’t been great, sees the Indians and turns himself into the second coming of Sandy Koufax. Toronto’s JA Happ made his third start of the year. The last time out, he didn’t make it out of the third inning, giving up four
Every once and a while, the scuffling Cleveland Indians offense awakens with a big game as they did two Friday’s ago when the battered the White Sox around in a 12-5 win at Progressive Field. Then they came crashing back to earth with five runs in the next three games. But on that night, it
History in Canada: The Indians had an insane offensive explosion last night in Toronto. TD will have WFNY’s recap at 10am. But for now, let’s focus on this mind-blowing fact: The Indians had two players with five hits for the first time in the same 9-inning game since 1928. Amazing. David Murphy had three doubles,
Justin Masterson is a nice guy. By all accounts he is a great teammate and rarely in a bad mood. But you know what I want to see from him? More nastiness. More intensity. More domination. But here is the thing: I expect too much out of Masterson. Justin is what he is—a nice middle-of-the-rotation
The weekend at Progressive Field did not go as planned for the home team. The visiting Toronto Blue Jays, with hordes of their fans on hand after making the four-plus-hour trek down from Ontario, took of three from your Cleveland Indians and may have come away with the sweep if not for a managerial blunder
A massive debate broke out on Twitter at the end of Friday’s disheartening 3-2 Indians defeat. This time around, it wasn’t actually about attendance. No, it was about Michael Bourn and his eventually failed bunt attempt. After red-hot Lonnie Chisenhall started the bottom of the ninth against the Blue Jays with a double, Bourn attempted
Shaun Marcum alone is not a game-changer. But with relatively little possible cost and minimal team risk, the Cleveland Indians just added a bit more upside to their 2014 roster. Yesterday, the 32-year-old former Milwaukee Brewer and Toronto Blue Jay reached agreement with the Tribe to compete for the open No. 5 rotation spot. Marcum
Scott Lewis and Paul Rigdon did it. So let us not get too excited. Many of you are probably asking yourselves “Who are Scott Lewis and Paul Rigdon?’ Both were starting pitchers who made great impressions during their major league debuts with the Indians. Rigdon, a right-hander who was later used as trade bait to
The Indians are making a habit of giving away games they shouldn’t lately. It’s becoming all too costly in the race for the AL Central title. Mental lapses happen from time to time, but they certainly can’t arrive in the ninth inning with the score tied. And I am not just talking about the players
In many ways, Indians starting pitcher Ubaldo Jiménez is the poster boy for his team: Just when you are ready to write him off, he comes back strong and with a vengeance. Not to say I have written this team off after losing three of four to Detroit, especially not when they started the day
Danny Salazar, one of the best pitching prospects in the Cleveland Indians system, will make his major league debut on Thursday against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Tribe announced the somewhat-expected decision on Tuesday afternoon, with a final rotation spot left open with the most recent demotion of Carlos Carrasco. It will be a tough
Your Wahoo Warriors headed into last night’s tilt against the Toronto Blue Jays looking for a sweep. I am trying to be a glass half-full guy when it comes to the Tribe in the Terry Francona era, so let me start with the positives. The Indians were facing a familiar foe in former White Sox
TD sounded like garbage, partly because he was sick and partly because wherever it was in these United States of America that he was holed up in a hotel this week had garbage internet connections and equally garbage cell phone reception. What wasn’t garbage was our conversation following a Tribe win in Toronto as they
