Indians fall short of expectations, playoffs in 2015

CLEVELAND (AP) Jason Kipnis stood near his locker, already showing signs of an early-fall cleanout, and sized up a season of major momentum swings and minor fulfillment. The Indians fell way short of expectations - and the playoffs. Unsatisfying. Still, despite spending just two days over .500 during the regular season and getting there again with a 3-1 win over the Boston Red Sox...

Sox Drop Another Game To The Indians As Season Draws To A Close

The Red Sox faced off against the Indians once again as the season winds down.  Both teams are not going anywhere in the playoffs, so it is just playing it out at this point.  The Sox decided to tap Craig Breslow once again as a starter in a bullpen game vs. Kluber for the Indians.  Breslow once again impressed in his impromptu role as a starter, but he would still end up with...

Top 10 Pitching Performances of 2015

The season has obviously not gone the way the Indians and their fans had hoped it would. There are a number of potential reasons for the Indians underachievement, most of them related to offensive futility during the first 3/4 of the season.

Indians Must Remember Both Halves as Season Closes

It feels like it’s the same ol’ song and dance: it’s the last weekend of the Indians season, the team struggled and hung on by a thread until the very end and just couldn’t come together long enough to make it. They played mediocre baseball and, although the team is *technically* playing some October baseball right now, it’s not what fans were expecting to start the season...

Francona vs. Orsillo, or “Why We’ll Miss Don, Reason #27,849″

History has shown us that every Batman must have his Joker. Every Casear his Brutus. Every Marty McFly his Biff. Every foodie that best friend who just wants to go to Arby’s. It’s a circle of conflict that has kept this world spinning for years. Now we must add two more names to those classic confrontations: Don Orsillo and Terry Francona. For reasons I still don’t quite understand...

The Bat Flip Heard ‘Round Baseball

Warning to all who proceed to read the following rantings: I am likely going to make more out of Cleveland Indian Jose Ramirez’s Wednesday night bat flip than you believe should be made. However, I believe more should be made of it. Unfortunately, many of the common refrains being made post-flip are about how Ramirez showed poor judgment and needs to learn — the first of those...

Brantley Proving 2014 Was No Fluke

Michael Brantley‘s season ended yesterday due to an injured shoulder. His season began with an ailing back. Despite the injuries that book-ended his 2015 campaign, Brantley proved that his breakout 2014 season was absolutely no fluke. Last year, Brantley put up numbers that were, by far, career highs. He hit a blistering .327 with 20 homers and 97 RBI. Despite the fact that he...

End of the season post-mortem: 2015 Cleveland Indians

The Indians went into this season expecting to win, but fell into a hole after a couple poor months that even the annual Terry Francona bounce couldn’t get them out of.

Francisco Lindor & The Greatest Indians Rookies Ever

All around baseball, the 2015 season will likely be remembered as the year of the rookie. Already 20 rookies across the league have been worth at least two wins above replacement and at least half these will be very disappointed when they don’t win the Rookie of the Year.

Kluber reaches Indians milestone

While Monday night's start probably isn't one Corey Kluber will want to remember, he did reach a point of distinction in his Cleveland Indians career. With his sixth inning strikeout of Danny Escobar, Kluber notched the 700th of his career. It placed his name next to an Indians legend, that guy who has his own statue at the ballpark. In his Cy Young campaign last season, Kluber set...
