The depression in Cleveland baseball that occurred between 1960 and the early 1990’s is often referred to as the Curse of Rocky Colavito, but this is blaming the victim and not the cause. Instead, full blame of the Indians failure as a team from 1960 through at least 1970 should fall on the shoulders of […]

5/6 Recap: Salazar Continues to Shine with Support from Ramirez

Player of the Game Taking absolutely nothing from Jose Ramirez, who had a tremendous game, this one belonged to Danny Salazar.

A Recent History of One Run Affairs

In a complete reversal of the past few seasons, the Indians must have been so excited to see the Tigers come to town on May 3rd. In their previous three game series in late April, the Indians swept Detroit with a run differential of 18 to 5. After the first 2-1 win, the Indians scored […]
