Fantasy Baseball: Weekend pitching overview

Just 10 days remaining in baseball’s regular season and fantasy baseball leagues are coming down to the wire. At this point, all leagues should be in either the semi-final or the championship round. With so little time remaining to alter the course of their game, fantasy owners are in high gear, trying to pick up players with hot streaks or favorable matchups in store. Although...

9/18 Recap: Ramirez Runs Tribe To Series Win

Player of the Game Danny Salazar continued another run of great starts with nine strike outs in 7.1 shut out innings. He also allowed just five hits, all singles, and one earned run that was aided by a wild pitch. Tribe pitchers have now thrown at least seven innings, with one run or less, two walks or less and at least nine strike outs in the past three starts. Going back further...

2015′s breakout team: the Cleveland Indians

For whatever reason, Cleveland seems to be the place to be for late 20’s breakouts from starting pitchers. Cliff Lee set the tone for the Indians a few years back, and this year, Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco have followed in his footsteps. It is unfortunate for the Indians that Carrasco’s dominance, along with Danny Salazar’s resurgence, occurred so late in the season....

Lee Needs to Use Remainder of Season to Iron Out Speed Bumps

This Indians season has been, without a doubt, a rollercoaster for fans. Cleveland started the season ready to finish the business the team approached last season, and have been treated to a 2014 of highs and lows, with the team at times asserting themselves into the thick of the playoff chase, while simultaneously falling short when it matters most. The season has also been one...

Three under the radar offseason targets for the Indians

My last column on the idea of the Indians acquiring Adrian Beltre generated a lot of talk. When I glanced among the comments I noticed a lot of people were hesitant to move a prospect the level of Clint Frazier. To get something you have to give up something, and to me Beltre is an ideal fit so parting with Frazier is worth it. The only downside with him is salary and age. But...

Kluber Kontinues to Karve His Place into Tribe Record BooK; Indians 4, Astros 2

They grow up so fast. It was just two years ago Corey Kluber made his second start of his career. In his first two big league starts, he allowed nine runs. Houston’s Nick Tropeano made his second career start on Tuesday night and they should hope he matures as quickly as Kluber because two years later he’s carving his name into the Indians’ record book. Kluber struck out 14...

9/16 Recap: Kluber Sets New High & Moves Higher in the Record Books

Player of the Game While it wasn’t his best start of the season, tonight was the night that Corey Kluber struck out the most batters, impressive considering his already imposing K totals (more later). In addition to a career high 14 strike outs, Kluber threw seven innings and allowed just a single earned run, scored in the first inning. With the Indians almost assuredly out of...

Tribe Happenings: There is a lot of blame to pass around

Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… So who is to blame? The Indians went into Detroit this past weekend and were swept out of the Motor City. They played hard and were setup to win two games late, but due to the timely heroics once again from Tigers hitters they lost both games in excruciating fashion. The hangover from that sweep carried over into Monday night’s...

Can Corey Kluber win the AL Cy Young?

Having the luxury of watching Corey Kluber pitch on a weekly basis has been one of the few fortunate occurrences of the 2014 MLB season. Kluber has endeared himself to Cleveland on the mound (where he’s been nearly unhittable) and off of it where he spearheads memes about teammates (Scott Atchison is so old…). And while Kluber has shown Cy Young qualities throughout the season...

Indians reliever C.C. Lee pranked with cup-on-the-hat (Video)

Cleveland Indians reliever C.C. Lee fell victim to the cup-on-the-hat prank during the opening moments of Monday night's game in Houston.Lee stood at the front railing of the dugout with no clue that a Powerade cup had been secured to the top of his cap with bubble gum. Lee finally figured it out as he walked out to the bullpen with the other relievers in the bottom of the first...

A frustrated Jason Kipnis went off on an Indians fan on Twitter

On Saturday night, the Cleveland Indians lost a heartbreaker against the Detroit Tigers, falling 5-4 after a two-run homer in the eighth inning. Frustrated with losing another tough game to a division rival, an Indians fan tagged second baseman Jason Kipnis in an angry tweet. Kipnis didn’t just let it roll off his shoulders. @TomHorsman Pardon my language but you're a ****...

All the Indians Need is a 14-Game Winning Streak

The Indians are done. It hurts to say it, but even the most eternal optimists have to come to grips with the fact that the Indians will not make their second straight trip to the postseason this October. After printing t-shirts in March stating that they had, “Unfinished Business,” the Indians dug themselves into a hole too deep to dig out of. Cleveland’s chances to reach the...

Jason Kipnis curses out Indians fan who calls team ‘pathetic’

The Cleveland Indians were swept by the Detroit Tigers over the weekend in a crucial three-game series that may have spoiled their chances to win the AL Central. The Indians are now 6.5 games out of first in the division and 5 behind in the wild card race. One fan traveled to Detroit for Saturday’s […]

Initial Analysis Of The Indians 2014 Draft Picks

It has only been three months since the Indians picks in the 2014 amateur draft were selected and even less time since they signed and joined their minor league squads, but already some have stood out. While the best performers were generally those taken at the top of the draft, there have been a few who made a name for themselves despite being taken after more than 500 players...

Terry Francona Has Questionable Taste

That sound you heard Saturday night was me losing respect for Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona. Tito: “It probably doesnt speak to my maturity but I really like the Zooperstars. I love them. Harry Canary. Clammy Sosa. I love those guys” — Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) September 13, 2014 I mean, it’s one thing to think it…but for the two-time World Series-winning...
