Welcome To Cleveland, Mr. Lindor!

The day has finally come, the day every Indians fan has been waiting for since the season began. That’s right, Francisco Lindor has finally been promoted from Columbus to the Cleveland Indians and is set to join to the team tomorrow for the rubber match game in Detroit! Lindor, the Indians’ top prospect since the […]

6/13 Recap: Tribe battles to earn 5-4 win against Detroit

Roster Update: Reliever Scott Atchison was activated from the disabled list prior to the game as the Indians optioned right-hander C.C. Lee back to Triple-A Columbus. Lee was on the Indians roster for two days and pitched on June 12 against four Detroit batters. He allowed two hits and one run in 0.2 innings. Atchison […]

Trade Prospectus: Todd Frazier

Believe it or not, the non-waiver trade deadline in Major League Baseball is quickly approaching and the Indians are, once again,  in the market for an impact bat. This season specifically, the front office needs to make a move to bolster an average offense on a team that hopes to reach the postseason. There are […]

6/12 Recap: Same old, same old.

Player of the Game Danny Salazar takes tonight’s player of the game through a combination of two reasons. First, he pitched very well tonight, and second, and most upsettingly, there was no one else who contributed a single positive thing to tonight’s game. Feathers Up Danny Salazar more than held his own in tonight’s pitching […]

Stop it! The Indians Don’t Need a Right Handed Power Bat

It has been a mantra on Indians social networks for years now that the team would only be complete when they added a right handed power bat. It has lead to many jokes and memes, including one where Brandon Moss was flipped to the opposite side of the plate:   @JoeyAShwartz


06/11 Recap: Very HAPP-y with today’s win.

Player of the Game Shawn Marcum has battled back from adversity in his career and thus I will give the award to today’s tribe starter; partly because he earned it and partly because I’m simply a nicer guy than Joe. In facing 21 batters he only gave up 2 hits and struck out 5 on […]

Could the Indians Rob the Yankees Again?

Last week, Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman made it clear that the club is seeking right handed pitching and, while there were some options available on the free agent market including former Yankee Rafael Soriano (sign by the Cubs) and David Aardsma (signed by Atlanta), the market is getting thin and the Indians may be in a position […]

MLB Draft Day 3: Indians Finish Out Draft Class

The third and final day of the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft was yesterday, covering rounds 11-40. There’s far too many selections to be able to provide any detailed information on all of them, but here’s the Indians final 30 picks: 11. (334) Chandler Newman RHP (HS) 12. (364) Ryan Perez SHP (HS): Perez is a […]

Is It Time To Give Up On Lonnie?

Sunday night, the Indians finally were so fed up with the lack of production from the left side of the infield that they sent the whole thing down to AAA, promoting Giovanny Urshela and Zach Walters in their stead. Even more than Francisco Lindor, proponents of the advancement of Urshela have a primary motivation of making an […]

MLB Draft Day 2: Tribe Adds First Bats

Rounds 3 through 10 of the MLB Amateur Draft took place yesterday and the Tribe had a pick in each round. The Indians added their first position players of the 2015 draft class and continued adding young arms as well. Round 3 (93): Mark Mathias (2B) The Indians’ first pick of the day was the […]

6/9 Recap: Indians Battery Not Enough To Power Team Past Mariners

Roster Update: The moves were discussed more in depth Sunday night by Danny Cunningham and this morning by Kevin Gall, but for those who missed it, there were some big happenings in Indians baseball over the off day. Lonnie Chisenhall and Jose Ramirez were both optioned to AAA Columbus with Zach Walters and Giovanny Urshela (who made his […]

Why Urshela Is More Important Than Lindor

This weekend the Indians made a somewhat surprising move by demoting the entire left side of their infield, sending Jose Ramirez and Lonnie Chisenhall to AAA Columbus. Both Ramirez and Chisenhall have been painfully bad this season, particularly at the plate. Last season, Ramirez made everyone believe he could be a legitimate starting short stop […]

This Is Next Year 2015

MLB Draft Day 1: Indians Select Former #1 Pick Brady Aiken

The Indians made a big splash in the 2015 MLB Draft by selecting the former 2014 #1 overall pick Brady Aiken with their first round (#17) pick. Last year Aiken became the first #1 overall pick not to sign since Tim Belcher in 1983. Concerns arose over the health of his elbow and it was […]

Division Games At Comerica Park Are Indians Most Expensive Tickets This Week

The Cleveland Indians have a favorable schedule this week that could allow them to chip away at the Minnesota Twins’ lead for first place in the American League Central division. To begin the week, Cleveland has a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners at Progressive Field. The Indians recently finished a four-game series against the […]
