In our short pre-game podcast from Sunday we discussed many topics including Lonnie Chisenhall‘s incredible turn around defensively at third base and […]

5/2 Recap: A Few Close Plays Turn Close Game Into Blowout

Player of the Game Unlike the three relievers who stumbled through the sixth inning, Ryan Webb was able to get batters out tonight without allowing other batters to reach base. Webb pitched two innings, the seventh and eighth, and they (along with the third) were two of the only three runnerless innings for Indians pitching […]

5/1 Recap: Missing Offense Found, But How to Keep It?

Roster Update: After a poor start yesterday, T.J. House has been conveniently placed on the 15 day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation.

April 2015 Player Power Rankings

Much more important than wins and losses are the individual successes by each player on the team. The opposite of this may be true, but you can’t have the whole without the parts and this is the time to break those parts down into bite sized pieces. The original, predictive pre-season player power rankings came out in […]

Could Corey Kluber Be the Next Luis Tiant?

Luis Tiant was one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history, a borderline Hall of Famer (received a 31% vote in support in 1980) with 229 career wins, three All-Star appearances and three top six Cy Young finishes. He is also the pitcher to own the distinction of the greatest separation in wins and losses […]

Pulling the Rip Cord

Hype can be a dangerous thing. After a solid 93 win 2005 campaign, the Indians won just 78 games during the highly anticipated 2006 season. With the expectations removed, the Indians were the best team in the American League during the regular season, but with the hype machine built up again, won just 81 games […]

Righty Tighty, Lefty Lose-y

Over the years, the current incarnation of the Cleveland Indians has gathered a reputation that they cannot hit left handed pitching and they have done nothing to stem that so far in 2015 as they have began the season 1-4 against south paws with a more fair 4-4 record against right handers. In general, the […]
