This Week in Tribe 8/11-17

As has seemed a microcosm of the Indians season, the Indians ended a four game winning streak with a four game losing streak. The upcoming week in Indians baseball should be a little easier however, as they play just five games in the next seven days. This should be incredibly useful as the team is […]

This Week In Tribe: 7/29-8/3

If the past week and a half were perfectly set up for the Indians to regain ground in the AL Central, this week is set up for them to make a move on the Wild Card. They may have faltered against Kansas City, losing three of four, but are still well within both races. Starting […]

This Week In Tribe 7/18-27: Starting off Central

Starting after the All-Star break, Burning River Baseball will no longer be doing previews for every single series, describing every pitching match up. Instead, there will be a single preview article posted each week on Sunday night that covers the most important topics of the upcoming week. This first edition will come out on a […]

Series Preview: White Sox at Indians 7/11-13

This will be the Indians final series before the All-Star break, but rather than the end of the first half, it is more important as it begins a long stretch against Central Division teams that will go a long way into establishing the order of things in the second half. Including this series, the next […]

Series Preview: Yankees at Indians, Nick Swisher Day Special

It’s Nick Swisher Day here at as his old team, the New York Yankees come into town. The Yankees are playing about .500 baseball and are stuck in third in the East (essentially the same position the Indians are at in the Central), but this series will feature a few high points in addition to […]

Series Preview: Royals at Indians 7/4-6

Happy Independence Day as the Indians will celebrate with fire works after the opening game against Kansas City. Whether they will have any thing to cheer about during the game, however, is yet to be seen. Major difficulties on offense and defense over the road trip brought back little but more questions about how to […]

Series Preview: Indians at Dodgers 6/30-7/2

The Indians-Mariners series was filled with great pitching and they look to see a lot more of the same against Los Angeles. With the series loss and the 2-3 road trip so far, the Indians are back in third place and 6.5 games behind first place Detroit. While the Indians have faced some fantastic pitching […]

Series Preview: Indians at Mariners 6/27-29

The Tribe managed a split in a short two game series against Arizona and, while it could easily have been a sweep if things had went a little differently in the opener, they must be happy to have ended their most recent four game losing streak. This team has shown moments of brilliance, but has […]

Series Preview: Indians at Diamondbacks 6/24-25

The Indians have been a very difficult team to predict all season and the last series was no different. After sweeping the Tigers last time the two teams played, Detroit flipped things around and swept the Indians this time. What makes this even more surprising was the utter dismantling by the Tigers considering their current […]

Series Preview: Tigers at Indians 6/20-22

A four game series turned to three due to some rain, but the Indians still managed a series win, using a Nick Swisher walk off grand slam in the tenth to clinch it. Cleveland has had many offensive struggles of late, some of them due to Swisher, but are still getting better. Carlos Santana had […]

Series Preview: Angels at Indians 6/16-19

The Indians must be exuberant that they were able to get out of Boston with a split, moving them back to .500 on the season (34-34) after losing four straight to the Royals and Red Sox. The Tribe has had problems with every facet of the team at some point this season and now, the […]

Series Preview: Indians at Red Sox 6/12-15

After a quick two game series in Kansas City, the Indians are off to face the World Champions again after sweeping them in Cleveland just last week. The Indians appeared as hot as possible, scoring 17 against the Rangers in the final game of their four game series, but were swept by the Royals in […]

Series Preview: Indians at Royals 6/10-11

The Indians showed they could win on the road, not just winning consecutively on the road for the first time on the season, but winning a series against the talented, but wounded Rangers. The Tribe have now won nine of their last ten and sit just two games behind Detroit in the competition for the […]

Series Preview: Indians at Rangers 6/6-8

The best team in baseball at home (21-11), just swept the Red Sox, Rockies and Tigers at home, giving them a nine game home winning streak and six straight overall. With that, the Indians have returned to .500 for the first time since they were 11-11 on April 24th. Cleveland is now in sole possession […]
