9/11 Recap: Kluber Dominates, Tribe Tops Twins

9/10 Recap: Tribe Lets Twins off Hook, Lose 2-1

As the late Dennis Green once said, “We are who they thought they were, and we let them off the hook.” Joe Mauer drove in Brian Dozier with two outs in the 12th inning to end the frustration and futility for a 2-1 win for the twinkies. The two teams combined to commit worm genocide […]

This Is Next Year: Play-Off Edition

Lynchburg Hillcats  by Justin Lada The Hillcats sort of backed into the playoffs after clinching in the first half and securing the top spot by finishing on top in the second half of the Carolina League season despite losing four of their final five games.  Thomas Pannone gave them seven shutout innings on Labor Day […]

9/9 Recap: Salazar Struggles, but Bullpen Saves the Day

Player of the Game Mike Napoli will lead the highlight reel from this game, but it was Lonnie Chisenhall who was the team’s top offensive performer. He only had three at bats and just one hit, but it was a big one, scoring two with a double then scoring himself right after. Feathers Up The […]

Where did Napoli’s Power Go & Is it Back?

Starting in mid-July and carrying into early August, Mike Napoli was just about the hottest thing in Cleveland. He was belting home runs at a torrid pace (13 home runs in 33 games between July 1 and August 11) while “Party At Napoli’s” t-shirts were flying off the shelves at Progressive Field. There was so […]

9/8 Recap: Tribe Takes Bizarre Game to Split Series

Player of the Game With a double, home run, two RBI and two run scored, Carlos Santana lead the Indians offensive onslaught. Just behind him were Francisco Lindor and Abraham Almonte. Feathers Up The Astros got on the board first thanks to a lead-off single from George Springer and an RBI double from Alex Bregman in […]

More Bullpen Games Might Not Be the Worst Option

The Indians are as of yet undecided on how to proceed with their fifth spot in the rotation for the rest of the season. The first four places have remained or returned to excellence from their various ailments and bad outings, but number five is still a mystery. Josh Tomlin held the fifth spot almost […]

9/7 Recap: Astros Keep it Interesting, but Indians Prevail Late

Player of the Game The party is back on as Mike Napoli hit a monster bomb tonight, his second in three games after going homerless in the previous 21. Tonight’s shot was a two pointer and for that and his defensive aid in a one run game, he deserves the honors. Feathers Up The Indians […]

Despite No Playoffs, Lake County Captains Season Was Successful

By the measure of a team, the Lake County Captains didn’t have a great year overall. They finished a half game out of a playoff berth from the first half (40-30) and a second half five game losing streak took them out of clinching a spot there (32-38). If you look at how many original […]

9/6 Recap: Too Little, Too Late as Tribe Falls to Houston

Roster Update: The last of the Indians minor league teams wrapped up their regular season play yesterday and with that, players on non-playoff teams are free to return to the Majors without waiting the normal ten day period. This is why Shawn Armstrong was sent to Lake County rather than Columbus and he is now back […]

These Dogs Have Bite: 2016 MV Scrappers in Review

As I said before their season started, the Mahoning Valley Scrappers were going to prove this season they were a team not to underestimate, and I was correct. Did they finish in first place? No, actually they finished in fourth just a game below .500 at 37-38, but after a rough start to their season […]

9/5 Recap: Tribe’s 6 Game Win Streak Ends on Bullpen Day

Roster Update: What would a bullpen game be without Kyle Crockett? With this in mind (and also likely because the Indians needed 4.1 innings out of their pen last night), he was activated from AAA. Since he was already on the 40 man roster, no corresponding move was needed. The Indians will likely add Shawn […]
