Tribe Free Agent Targets: Alexei Ramirez

The Indians are never heavy players in free agency and that shouldn’t change this year, but if they are active, there are two obvious places for offensive improvement. These are the outfield and third base. Giovanny Urshela played just as expected during his rookie season, providing excellent defense with some power, but overall a disappointing […]

How Will the Indians Prepare for the Rule 5 Draft?

Baseball’s most misunderstood event is set to take place during the upcoming Winter Meetings on December 7th through the 10th. That’s right, the ever confusing Rule 5 draft will take place during the off-season’s most exciting period. The reality of the Rule 5  draft is that it’s not  that confusing at all, but it is […]

Indians Trade Targets: Yasiel Puig

Like Marcell Ozuna, who Kevin Gall profiled earlier in the week, Yasiel Puig is a young outfielder who is currently going through some conflict with management. While this attitude should be a red flag, it may be the thing that devalues these players enough that their teams would be willing to part with them. In […]

How to Handle Your Bear; AKA What to do with Carlos Santana?

Have you ever wondered where the Indians might be if Santana’s walks were base hits? If he could beat the shift a bit more and get guys into scoring or home more often? If he would just make that small adjustment, that we have all seen glimpses of over the last few years and commit […]

Trade Targets: Marcell Ozuna

After this past season’s let down, the Indians will need to change the makeup of their lineup if they wish to compete for a playoff spot in 2016. The Indians are certainly not going to be major players in the free agent market, although players like Jason Heyward and Chris Davis would look great in […]

Starting From Behind: Brantley Likely To Start 2016 On The DL

Even before the first pitch of spring training is thrown, the Indians will start the 2016 campaign “behind the eight ball.” Michael Brantley injured his right shoulder in mid-September (video below) and now he’s undergoing surgery to repair a “slight”  tear of the labrum, with Jordan Bastian of
