Waiting For Next Year:
With the Indians hosting the Tampa Bay Rays tonight at Progressive Field, I thought it was worthwhile to parse through all of the best pictures on Twitter on Tuesday to share with you on the site. Here, without further bantering, are my favorite 13 best tweets (almost all pictures) from all separate accounts during the day on Tuesday, all about prepping for today’s big AL Wild Card showdown.
Don't worry about tweeting like a crazy person. The @Indians have this on the main concourse. #tribetown pic.twitter.com/7oyanP14Ph

Go Tribe. Hope to see you at the game tonight. There should be at least half of the WaitingForNextYear crew at the game. Find us on Twitter to meet up with us at various points. Look forward to seeing you there!
TD should have a Tampa Bay preview soon this morning and we’ll have plenty more content before tonight’s 8 p.m. showdown.
BEST OF MAXIM
CLEVELAND—For a city that has endured countless pain and suffering when it comes to sports teams, Wednesday night at Progressive Field simply added more heartbreak.
The Indians first trip to the postseason in six years ended before it really started, as the Tampa Bay Rays behind the arm of 25-year old right-hander Alex Cobb shutout the Tribe, 4-0 to win the one-game wild card...
The Diff is your weekly WFNY look into the amazing world of sports statistics. For a complete log of articles, click this link. Last week, I recapped some stats from the Indians’ turnaround 2013 regular season. Today, I’m taking stats research questions from my WFNY colleagues with the Wild Card game tonight.

The Cleveland Indians have former closer Chris Perez on their roster for Wednesday’s Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay rays.
Recently removed from the closers role there was some discussion about whether or not Perez would be on the teams roster for the game.

(*not really) Remember that old joke setup “What’s grosser than gross?” During Wednesday night’s AL wild card game between the Cleveland Indians and Tampa Bay Rays at Progressive Field, not only was the behavior exhibited by some offensive use of face painting a gross exhibition by a few fans of the hometown team, the contents […]The post Some Indians fans behaved super...
The Indians enter Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game at Progressive Field without a defined closer. Staff leader Justin Masterson is considered to be capable of pitching only as a reliever at this time. As such a decision to put Masterson in charge of the ninth inning seems like a logical move though one Cleveland is not yet comfortable making.
On Monday hours before...
The Indians are returning to the play-offs in 2013 for the first time since 2007 and it almost didn't happen. The Indians guaranteed themselves a spot by finishing a game ahead of the Rays and Rangers, but with just two less wins in any game this year and they wouldn't have made it. Considering the Indians finished the year with eleven walk-off wins, 30 one run wins and a...
It might as well be Game 7 of a playoff series.
Matched up for the first time since June 2, Cleveland (92-70) will battle the Tampa Bay Rays (92-71) in a one-game wild card playoff Wednesday night at Progressive Field.
The winner goes on to play the Boston Red Sox in the American League Division Series, while the loser ends their quest for baseball glory by packing their bags for...
While many sports fans may be ambivalent about whether the Cleveland Indians remain in the Major League Baseball playoffs, those who care about humanity or basic tact are likely glad the team got bounced Wednesday night.
A cadre of fans imitating the team’s American Indian logo drew attention for all the wrong reasons Wednesday as Tampa Bay beat Cleveland 4-0. While the Indians...
The Indians have accomplished the near-improbable in 2013 by clinching not only a wild card berth, but home field advantage in the one-game playoff, a prize previously thought earmarked for the second place AL East or AL West team. As the fans and players celebrate before the Wild Card game at Progressive Field on Wednesday, there are some unflattering theories about why...
I was still up wallowing in some Burger King. Martin Rickman was up and about to drive home from Progressive Field. I gave him a call and we talked about the Indians.

How many champagne baths should be allowed?

Player(s) of the Game
The bullpen and Justin Masterson in particular deserve all the credit for keeping this game winnable until the ninth inning. Marc Rzepczynski, Bryan Shaw along with Masterson combined to throw four innings and didn't allow a run, giving up just three hits while striking out five.

Alright, by show of hands, who of you had the Cleveland Indians hosting an elimination wild card game at the beginning of the season? Come on, don't be shy.
Okay, really, if any of you reading this article did have the Indians hosting the American League wild card elimination game tonight and can prove said claim, can you be my life coach? Who are you? Where are you? Seriously...
To see the world there all by itself likely brings to mind a bee, but that's not the kind of buzz that I'll be talking about today from my perch here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

The Indians were poised to make a long run into the play-offs this year, the only thing standing in their way being the Tampa Bay Rays and starting pitcher Alex Cobb. As we all know now, this block was insurmountable, but what we really want to know is why.
First off, the odds were against them. Winning ten games in a row against anyone is incredibly improbable and winning eleven...
