Player of the Game
The little Tiger that could has hit two home runs in each of the past two nights, giving him his second straight Player of the Game award. Ryan Raburn's first shot was a two run home run (the most popular variety on the night) while his second was a solo shot. Added together he has gone 7-8 with four home runs, 7 RBI and five runs scored. A fairly decent haul for a utility infielder playing right field.
The Indians top two hitters took care of the Phillies top pitcher early as both Carlos Santana and Mark Reynolds each hit two out, two run home runs. Jasons Kipnis and Giambi were nice enough to get on base before the two sluggers.
The two run home run frenzy continued throughout the game and against other pitchers as well. By the end of the game, Michael Brantley, Lonnie Chisenhall and Ryan Raburn in addition to those already mentioned each hit 2 run jacks.
If the two run home runs weren't enough for you (or Zach McAllister)...

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...

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.
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.

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...

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...
