INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Indians Trade Winds May Become Gusty this Winter

After three weeks of reflection on the Cleveland Indians and their disappointing 2014 season, it’s time to move on.

Today In Tribe History: October 22, 1997

It marks the second straight game that the Indians score in double digits after a 14-11 loss in Game 3 of the World Series.

Going for the Gold, The Silver & Everything Else

It is hard to rate the Indians 2014 season successful or unsuccessful, largely because the quality of the players involved and the disappointing finish of the team as a whole. When a team has such talented players who stand out, as Michael Brantley and Corey Kluber did this year, the accolades shouldn’t be far behind and the Indians have a chance to bring home a lot of hardware...

Cleveland Rumors: Nick Swisher will return

Cleveland Indians first baseman Nick Swisher had surgery on both knees in August, putting an end to his dud of a 2014 season.

Indians ask fans about Wahoo, popular players in survey

It’s that time of year again and the Cleveland Indians want to know what their fans and season ticket holders think. Not a lot of surprising questions, per usual. The Indians once again asked about all their various uniforms and Chief Wahoo himself. They also asked for a ranking of the top five Cleveland Indians, which makes sense. One slight wrinkle though: They included manager...

Should the Indians Extend Lonnie Chisenhall?

Of the many roster decisions the Indians will have to make this off-season, perhaps the player with the biggest range of possibilities is Lonnie Chisenhall. Going into 2014, Chisenhall was entering his fourth Major League season with a career line of .244/.284/.411 and just 23 home runs and 74 RBI, but he added another 13 homers and 59 RBI with a line of .280/.343/.427. This was...

A deeper look into the numbers for the Indians

Despite missing the playoffs the Cleveland Indians made some great strides in 2014 and have expanded on an already promising young core of players. I wanted to dive deep into the numbers to find out where the Indians can improve knowing they have limited money to work with.  With arbitration cases and natural raises the Indians will be on the books for somewhere between $70-75 million...

Should the Indians Exercise Aviles’ Option?

The Cleveland Indians will have a few hard decisions to make, regarding personnel and one of the first of these should involve Mike Aviles. Unlike all but one other member of the final 40 man roster for the Indians, Aviles is not officially under contract for the 2015 season. Rather, the super utility man has a single option year left from his contract that he signed shortly after...
