Which Indians Could Be Making the Trip to San Diego As All-Stars?

The last time an Indians player started the All-Star game at any position was 2011 when Asdrubal Cabrera manned shorstop only because the voted-in Derek Jeter was injured. Barring a suddenly interested group of fans getting out to vote or a few catastrophic injuries, Cabrera will likely remain the last position player to start the game. And you’d have to go back to 2007 the last...

6/28 Recap: Tribe Tested, But Streak Extends to 11

Player of the Game Corey Kluber certainly had dominating stuff tonight as well as near perfect command as he needed just 87 pitches to go eight innings. He walked one and struck out seven, allowing just three hits, all in the sixth. Those three hits did lead to two runs and it was because of this that he was removed from the game for a pinch hitter in the top of the ninth, but the...

The Francisco Lindor Effect Is Ridiculous

The Indians have won 10 games in a row! That’s really good, and it’s allowed them to storm out in front in the American League Central. Sure, things can change in a hurry — 10 games ago, the Indians and the Royals were tied. But there’s no sense in just dismissing whole hot streaks, and the Indians now have one of the better records in baseball. For a few years, they’ve...

Cleveland's Santana a different kind of leadoff hitter

As a 210-pound power hitter, Carlos Santana doesn't exactly fit the prototype of the traditional leadoff man.
