Outside the Boxscore:
As many baseball players and umpires can attest to, games can run a little long and at times, you can lose track of what is going on.
During Monday night's Kansas City Royals/Cleveland Indians game, home plate umpire Paul Emmel in the fifth inning made a notable blunder.
With Cleveland's Lonnie Chisenhall at the plate, Emmel called an emphatic strike three to end the inning but sadly for Paul, it was only the second strike:

BEST OF MAXIM
Your browser does not support iframes.Home plate umpire Paul Emmel tried to ring up Cleveland Indians hitter Lonne Chisenhall on two strikes Monday night.The dubious moment came in the top of the fifth inning when Kansas City Royals hurler Luke Hochevar delivered a 3-1 strike right down the heart of the plate. This is when Emmel apparently loses track of the actual count and proceeds...
This road trip can’t end soon enough for the Tribe. Yet, here they are, eight games in with one game remaining, and they are 4-4. All things considered, that is pretty astounding. There is little doubt that the Indians are a flawed team. You look at the roster and it is considerably better than it was last year. The bullpen is still loaded with options. The lineup is solid to to...
Just what the doctor ordered.
The Indians continued their hot play on Tuesday as they routed the Philadelphia Phillies in a slugfest, 14-2. Tribe bats exploded for 14 runs on 16 hits to win their third consecutive game.
Offensively, Cleveland greeted Interleague play and Phillies starter Roy Halladay with a knockout, belting a Progressive Field record seven home runs in the contest...

It was a tale of two completely different ballgames on Sunday, as the Indians split a day-night doubleheader with the first place Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
When Nick Swisher originally signed with the Indians this winter, it was as the starting right fielder. Shin-Soo Choo had already been traded and Mark Reynolds had been signed to be the first baseman. There was still a huge hole at DH however, that was taken care of when the Michael Bourn signing moved everyone over a spot (Drew Stubbs to right, Swisher to first, Reynolds to DH)...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) From the moment that Ubaldo Jimenez started to warm up in the bullpen, and noticed the run on his fastball, he had a pretty good idea that this night would be unlike any other this season.
Any other in quite a while, for that matter.
The Indians' right-hander baffled the Kansas City Royals while pitching into the eighth inning, Ryan Raburn belted two home...
CLEVELAND (AP) --Ryan Raburn homered twice for the second straight game and the Cleveland Indians hit seven home runs in all, routing the Philadelphia Phillies 14-2 Tuesday night.
The Indians set a major league high this season for homers in a game. Cleveland has won three in a row, outscoring opponents 33-5 in that span.
Philadelphia had won three in a row before Roy Halladay (2...
Who are these Cleveland Indians hitters and what did you do with the group we’ve watched most of the season?
If we can take anything from this current Tribe three-game winning streak it is that this streaky team can be very dangerous when they get hot. The baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint. We are only a month in and we’ve already seen many peaks and valleys with our...
PAWTUCKET, RI – The Columbus Clippers lack of offense led them to their second loss of the series with the Pawtucket Rex Sox, falling, 5-1.
The Clippers went 7-for-33 on the game leaving 11 runners on-base and also went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position—striking out ten times as a team. The bats ultimately were the difference in the game for both clubs.
On the opposing...

Most fantasy writers have no problem recommending players you should go after, but do they really pick up all the players they hype up? I’ll answer for them: no. Here on “Star’s Shares,” we’ll discuss players yours truly has personally invested in. If a player is good enough to sit on one of my three...
