4/11 Recap: Sands Storm Not Enough To Deflate Detroit

Player of the Game The player least expected to be so was the hero today as Jerry Sands went from unknown to hero in a single day. Sands was only brought up due to Michael Brantley‘s back injury (he was kept out of the game again today due to back spasms) and only got into […]

Roster Update: Prior to tonight’s game, Jerry Sands was added to the Indians 25 man roster to give the team some extra bench depth.

Indians Arguments: To Go For The No-No Or Not

The Indians nearly accomplished something on Thursday afternoon they had not in 34 years: throw a no-hitter. It would have been a combined no-hitter using four pitchers but one nonetheless. The last team no-hitter? Lenny Barkers perfect game. It would not come to pass, however. A solo home-run from Jed Lowrie with one out off […]

You Kan’t Spell ReKord BreaKing Without K

Well, maybe you can, but that’s not the point. Last season, the Indians set a new Major League record with 1,450 as a pitching staff. While this likely had a lot to do with the over 500 innings pitched by the bullpen, particularly by the top three pitchers, it had even more to do with […]
