Series Preview: Indians at Giants 4/25-27

Divisional match-ups always have more on the line than a regular series and the Indians made the most of their time with the Royals, taking the four game series 3-1. It was enough to move them out of the Central Division cellar, ahead of Kansas City by half of a game. After ten of the […]

4/24 Recap: Royals 5 – Indians 1

Player of the Game After a slow start to the season, Corey Kluber put together the best start by any Indians pitcher this year, today.

4/23 Recap: Royals 3 – Indians 5

Player of the Game While his early season numbers have not been particularly impressive (of course he has played in two weeks less games than the rest of the team), Michael Bourn has been getting his job done and is slowly heating up. Tonight, he lead the game off with a single, the fourth time […]

Michael Brantley: The Ned Yost And Dale Sveum Connection.

With the Kansas City Royals in Cleveland and Ned Yost as their manager, it is the perfect time to thank both him and 3rd base coach Dale Sveum for allowing Michael Brantley to become an Indian. On July 7th, 2008 the Indians traded former CY Young award winner, C.C. Sabathia to the Milwaukee Brewers for a […]

Burning River Radio 2.13

4/22 Recap: Royals 8 – Indians 2

Player of the Game With two singles and a steal, Michael Brantley takes tonight’s ‘Player of the Game’ without competition. The Indians best offensive player, Yan Gomes, made an error that lead to an unearned run, keeping him out of the running and the pitching staff was dreadful from beginning to end. Brantley also scored […]

4/21 Recap: Royals 3 – Indians 4

Roster Update: Jason Giambi was brought back from the DL tonight after missing most of the first month with broken ribs after being hit by a pitch during Spring Training.

Trying To Explain The Indians Struggles (With Small Sample Sizes)

When a baseball team goes 7-10 during a 17 game stretch in June or July, nobody notices; if they earn that record during the first 17 games of the season, it causes concern. This is exactly where the Indians find themselves to start 2014 especially after they clinched a postseason birth last season. To understand […]

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 […]

4/20 Recap: Blue Jays 4 – Indians 6

Player of the Game Michael Brantley provided most of the scoring for the Tribe today including the first run of the game on a solo home run and the game tying run in the sixth inning when he scored on David Murphy’s double. In addition, Brantley had an RBI double in the fourth to keep […]

4/19 Recap: Blue Jays 5 – Indians 0

Player of the Game Games like this are difficult to find a Player of the Game and that is why the POG stat was invented. Today, Marc Rzepczynski came out on top with 1.1 innings of scoreless baseball. When he entered in the seventh, there was already a runner on base, but Zep stranded him […]

4/18 Recap: Blue Jays 3 – Indians 2

Player of the Game The Indians finally got the ace they have been looking for out of Justin Masterson. Although he was unable to make it out of the seventh inning, Masterson struck out nine in 6.1 and allowed just a single run (explained below). Masterson walked just two and allowed six hits, a far […]

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. This is the premier power hitter for the Cleveland Indians and he isn’t hitting, so something must be wrong. There are plenty of excuses people have made for this, starting with Santana […]

Series Preview: Blue Jays at Indians 4/18-20

The Indians managed a split of two games in Detroit, impressive considering their 4-15 effort in 2013. The Tribe had similar struggles in that series as they have had in each series recently with the top of the line-up under performing and the starting pitching being inconsistent. The line-up has seen some surprise performers (mostly […]
