Series Preview: Royals at Indians 4/21-24

The Indians are on a roll. Sideways on the ground in front of a bus, but a roll none-the-less. The offense has been depressing with the only bright spots coming from bottom of the line-up players, Lonnie Chisenhall and David Murphy. The starting rotation has been similarly disappointing, especially considering length of start. They currently […]

Carlos Santana’s Groin

Panic! It is two weeks into the season and Carlos Santana is batting just .157 with no home runs and a single RBI.

The Indians managed a split of two games in Detroit, impressive considering their 4-15 effort in 2013.

Last season, the Tigers were the only thing keeping the Tribe away from a Central Division championship on multiple fronts. First, Cleveland finished the season just a game behind […]

Carlos Carrasco, Reliever of the Future

Carlos Carrasco decided to do something a little different his last time out. Instead of warming up in the bullpen prior to the start of the game and heading into the dugout before first pitch, Carrasco came out of the bullpen in the bottom of the first as if he didn’t know he was starting […]
