Cleveland Indians Top Ten MiLB Middle Infielders of 2016

Just a year or so ago, the Indians minor league middle infield depth was the pride of baseball.

Which Indians Could Be Making the Trip to San Diego As All-Stars?

The last time an Indians player started the All-Star game at any position was 2011 when Asdrubal Cabrera manned shorstop only because the voted-in Derek Jeter was injured.

What’s the Deal with All these Catchers?

Coming into the 2016 season, catcher was unquestionably the Cleveland Indians weakest area of development. It was bad enough pre-season that the Indians brought in Anthony Recker, Anthony Moore and Guillermo Quiroz and that still wasn’t enough as, once Roberto Perez was hurt they had to sign Chris Gimenez just to have a full Major […]

Like Him or Not, Francona Gets Things Done

Terry Francona is a very divisive figure among Indians fans. Many in the more emotional crowd follow his every move blindly as the works of the genius who brought Boston their first World Championship in nearly 100 years. Other, more statistically inclined fans find fault in the Tribe’s manager daily. In particular, his love of […]
