Who Is The Real Yan Gomes?

Since hitting homers in back-to-back games on April 23 and 25, Yan Gomes is in a 2-44 nosedive. In such slumps, it’s easy to start sitting around and asking what’s wrong with them? Whether something is ‘wrong’ with Gomes or he’s regressing or mightily struggling depends on a few different schools of thought. On one hand, you […]


All-Time Indians: Frank Lane

The depression in Cleveland baseball that occurred between 1960 and the early 1990’s is often referred to as the Curse of Rocky Colavito, but this is blaming the victim and not the cause. Instead, full blame of the Indians failure as a team from 1960 through at least 1970 should fall on the shoulders of […]


How Good Were the 1995 Indians at Coming From Behind?

If you spend any time listening to Matt and Rick during the Indians broadcast on Fox Sports Ohio, you have doubtless heard the ramblings of nostalgia that ultimately end in something alone the lines of “it’s so hard to win if you don’t score first, except for the 1995 Indians who seemed to do it […]

Francisco Lindor Set for Cleveland Indians Stardom

Francisco Lindor was a closely-watched prospect during his minor-league career. However, the shortstop got his MLB call-up last year. The Cleveland Indians’ SS has been a revelation. After a rookie year to remember many were excited by his sophomore season potential. He hasn’t disappointed. Although it’s early days, he’s proving to be the face of […]

5/10 Recap: Trevor Bauer Smashes the Juicebox

Player of the Game The player of the game tonight was without a doubt the Indians starter for the night, RHP Trevor Bauer. Coming into this series, Bauer has three wins against the Houston Astros, with a 0.90 ERA over the course of his career. He got locked in early, and much to my surprise, […]

The Unconventional #LeadOffLos

It is no secret to anyone that’s talked baseball with me in the last year or so that I’ve been waiting patiently for Carlos Santana to lead off for the Cleveland Indians. The idea is a wee bit unorthodox, but with a team still feeling out its new dynamic at the plate, Los at the top […]

5/9 Recap: JRam Learning to Juggle as Indians Lose by Six

Player of the Game While the Indians offense barely appeared in this game and Corey Kluber wasn’t long for the showers, Jeff Manship put in more than his fair share of work, pitching 1.2 innings and striking out one without allowing a hit. Bully for Manship, the best of the Indians pitchers tonight. Feathers Up […]

5/7 Recap: If Cody is Mr. Anderson, Kendrys Morales is Neo

Roster Update: In order to make room for today’s starting pitcher, Cody Anderson, Tyler Naquin was optioned to AAA Columbus. While this move may be unpopular, Naquin unquestionably has a few things he can work on there and he was the safest drop as he still has options left. Player of the Game AIn a […]
