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 […]

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.
