Is Abraham Almonte For Real?

The Trade Deadline was a very active time for the 2015 version of the Cleveland Indians. Unfortunately, the Tribe did not have the winning season that Cleveland fans envisioned and became sellers at the end of July. First, David Murphy was sent to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for a minor league short stop, Eric […]

8/12 Recap: Small Ball Beats Big as Tribe Takes 2nd From New York

Player of the Game As we have come to expect, the Indians got another masterful pitching performance from Danny Salazar tonight.

Alexis Pantoja & Dan Wakamatsu: Defense Starts in the Middle

When the Indians had Omar Vizquel at short stop for more than a decade, they didn’t feel inclined to worry about the position. From 1994 through 2004, the Indians took exactly one short stop in each of the first four rounds of the draft and no others before round eight. Of 88 players chosen in […]

Lonnie Chisenhall, Utility Man?

Since his recall on July 30th, after more than a month and a half in AAA, Lonnie Chisenhall has been used exclusively in right field. One of the “advantages” of being out of the play-off race early is that a trial by fire at a new position (he played just four games there in AAA, […]
