Tribe Targets: Yosmani Tomas

Most of the players on the current free agent market are known around baseball as the average free agent is at least 30 and has played many years in the Majors, there are a few new names on the list this year. One of the more interesting of these is a hitter that is not […]

Should the Indians Extend Cody Allen?

To begin, reliever extensions almost never work out and closers even less often, but Winter is coming and rumors are abound. The general reasoning behind not keeping relievers around for a long time is that they benefit greatly from the unknown. There are so many minor league relievers that teams cannot focus scouts on each […]

Tribe Targets: Delmon Young

It is early in free agency, but already the market is thinning in one position of interest for the Tribe. With one of the weaker offenses in baseball, a power hitter, even one without a position, is in high demand. With most of the line-up set, including Carlos Santana at first and Lonnie Chisenhall at […]

Seven Little Piggies: The Indians AFL Results

The short season of the Arizona Fall League has come to a close as it gets cold everywhere, even in the desert. This season, the Cleveland Indians changed affiliate clubs from the Surprise Saguaros to the Peoria Javelinas, although they kept the same home field in Surprise (the Spring Training home of the Rangers and […]

Rule Five Risks & Rewards

The current Cleveland Indians 40 man roster sits at 35 men and while that may seem like extra room for free agents, at the moment, those spots should be reserved for the Rule 5 draft. On November 20th, all rosters in Major League Baseball need to be set for the draft which will occur during […]

Corey Kluber: The Man, The Robot, The Cy Young Winner

It’s official. Corey Kluber is the 2014 American League Cy Young Award winner with Clayton Kershaw winning his third award in the past four seasons. While Kershaw’s reign over the NL award was all but assured, the AL version was a tightly contested match between Felix Hernandez of the Mariners and Kluber. In the end, […]

How Cheap Are the Dolans, Really?

One of the biggest complaints about the Cleveland Indians from their own fans is the stereotype that faces almost every team owner in every sport ever, that they are cheap. It is seen and heard anywhere Tribe fans gather that Larry and now Paul Dolan will never spend the kind of money necessary to win […]

What To Do About Rzepczynski & Shaw

While the Indians entire roster could be set going into 2015 by simply keeping all those currently under contract around, this is likely not the greatest way to improve the team for another attempt at winning the World Series. Two players in interesting situations this off-season are Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw. Both pitchers are […]

Yesterday, we looked at the Indians optimal line-up and we already have a grasp on where their primary goals are. Today, we will take a look at what the Indians could possibly gain by adding a couple different players through free agency or trade that would help fill those gaps. While it is obvious that […]

While those articles were all based on what the Indians are most likely […]

An Exercise In Foresight: Qualifying Masterson & Cabrera

For all the insults that are thrown at the current management team of Chris Antonetti and Mark Shapiro by the Indians fan base, they have actually done an incredible job considering the current monetary situation with the team and around the league. The great long term signings of Yan Gomes, Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis […]

All That Glitters Is Not A Gold Glove

While the Indians were shut out of Gold Gloves just the day before, despite Michael Brantley and Yan Gomes finishing among the top in voting at their positions, they were able to take home two Silver Sluggers last night. This was the first time since 2011 that an Indian won the award and with both […]
