INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Indians Would Benefit Greatly From a Return to All-Star Form For Kipnis

In 2013 Jason Kipnis was an American League All Star second baseman who played an important role in helping the Indians to that season’s Wild Card game. In 2014 Kipnis had his worst big league campaign and the Tribe offense stalled at times with one of its key players scuffling. Needless to say, the Tribe could really use the Kipnis who made his Major League debut in 2011 and was...

Gavin Floyd is Brett Myers

On January 4, 2013, one day after the Indians signed Nick Swisher to a team record deal, the Indians signed veteran right hander Brett Myers to a one year, $7 million deal. Myers proved to be an absolute disaster, appearing in four games making three starts while giving up 10 home runs in just 21.1 innings. He experienced elbow problems and was eventually placed on the 60-day DL...

Nick Swisher On The Mend!

Who Needs to Rebound? Naming a player as a rebound player needs to be defined. First, it’s not necessarily the most improved player, which is typically an unproven player who has a break out season. Second, it’s not a player getting only marginally better. Instead, it is a player who had a bad year, requiring significant improvement to return to form the following year. This...

Maybe the Last Key for Carlos Carrasco

By this point you might feel like you know enough about the Carlos Carrasco story. Carrasco is coming off what looks like a breakthrough season. It was also his age-27 season, and previously, he was mostly regarded as a bust. He first showed up in the Baseball America top-100 before 2007, when the No. 1 […]

Terry Francona focused on improving abysmal Indians defense

The Cleveland Indians defense in 2014 was unacceptable. Pick any metric—advanced or arcane—and the Tribe, a season ago, may as well have had cinderblocks bound to their cleats and their gloves on the opposite hands. Considering that their poor defense was addressed ad nauseum throughout the entire season, and more so when the AL Central was within spitting distance, it comes...

Is Jason Kipnis Really That Bad Defensively?

The modern era of baseball has been completely redefined by a statistical revolution, providing much more accurate analysis of what is actually happening on the field from an all encompassing view down to the smallest detail. Unfortunately, even with these stats making analysis an option for every viewer, fans still fall into the same old pitfalls of bandwagon jumping. Similar to...

Ramsey looks to continue to make gains in Indians' system

CLEVELAND -- After participating in the SiriuxXM All-Star Futures Game last July, James Ramsey had a feeling that he could be dealt at the trade deadline. So when St. Louis' farm director called Ramsey in Tulsa on the morning of July 30, he wasn't surprised to learn that he was being traded to the Indians. The Tribe acquired Ramsey for Justin Masterson and got an established hitter...

Brothers Face Off for First Time in 1920 Series

In July 1920, Mickey Silverman, the night manager of the Associated Press office in Cleveland, spent part of his vacation in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Silverman returned and dutifully reported to Plain Dealer writer that the town was completely crazy over baseball – and not the Southern Association’s Chattanooga Lookouts, a team that remains in the city to this day. No, residents...

The Cleveland Indians Should Lock Up Corey Kluber Now

Corey Kluber was masterful in 2014, winning the AL Cy Young award The 2014 AL Cy Young winner Corey Kluber was simply masterful for the Cleveland Indians in 2014 and gives the Indians a true ace for the first time since having C.C Sabathia and Cliff Lee. The Indians received solid years from Justin Masterson but he was not a legitimate ace. Corey Kluber is an ace and the...

Cleveland Indians: Don’t Sleep On Them Again

This offseason, the AL Central has been one of the most active divisions, from the White Sox making serious moves towards contention, to the Indians working with a limited budget, or the Royals taking chances on a few comeback candidates, and the Twins continuing to invest in starting pitching. Out of all the teams in this crowded division, the Cleveland Indians stand out for a playoff...

Player Profile #122: Brandon Moss | 1B/OF | CLE

Most people will probably remember Brandon Moss’ 2014 season in two ways: Terrible second-half slump Two-homer wild card game, seemingly out of nowhere On the surface that’s a fair assessment of how his season went, but it’s also incomplete. A quick look at Moss’ end-of-season stats — .234, 25 HR, 81 RBI — shows a considerable amount of pop, but imagine how awesome...
