Indians twitter

The year 2015 is strange indeed. We wondered how things would go over in terms of the Indians’ social media presence if the season didn’t turn out well.

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. And what a lovely Wednesday it is. I realize I often open this column with weather talk, and I’ve heard that in some circles weather talk is not considered the hippest subject on the block.

Deconstructing #DellySucks

Matthew Dellavedova mean tweets

Scrappy. Feisty. Pesky. Energetic. In the NBA, a supposedly complimentary adjective sure can carry a lot of baggage with it, suggesting more about what a player lacks than what he actually has to offer. For Cleveland’s folk hero du jour Matthew Dellavedova, even a coming out party in the playoffs can wind up re-purposed as

I had occasion to sit down and get to know @sportsyelling and @BrutalStephanie in person. What resulted was a long podcast about friends and Twitter and sports and any number of other topics.

Trevor Bauer went HAM on an “overthinking” inquiry

Trevor Bauer Cleveland Indians

There is no denying that Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer is one of the more intelligent players in Major League Baseball. His penchant for mechanics and the how versus the why have made him into one of the league’s brightest young stars. Conversely, these same mannerisms—the pre-game routine, his replies to post-game questions—have made
