Burning River Baseball:
Player of the Game
Mark Reynolds' solo home run earned him his third Player of the Game tonight, just edging out a number of other players. A walk late in the game pushed him over the edge as Carlos Santana and Michael Brantley each were out in their three at bats in which they didn't knock in a run. It is Reynolds first award in almost a month.
The Nationals hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning, but the Indians matched them in the fourth with Carlos Santana and Mark Reynolds each hitting two out, solo home runs. The home run for Reynolds was his first in 15 games.
Progressive Field was filled with Jason Kipnis supporters who were wearing his number 22 jersey that was a free give away today. He didn't disappoint as he knocked in the first Indians run of the day and hit a single and walked in his other two at bats.
It's hard to believe that the a team able to come back against Jordan Zimmermann after their own starter was knoc...
BEST OF MAXIM
Basking in the Indians third consecutive win, a quick rebound from an absolutely horrendous stretch, the Indians peak and valley tendencies have shown their ugly head. And as with many streaks, when it rained it poured, something which we can actually see manifested statistically in BABIP.
Over the last fourteen games the Tribe’s offense posted a BABIP of .275 (23rd in baseball...
NOW THAT IS GROSS
The Mariners and Athletics were exposed to a sewage backup Sunday in Oakland, forcing both teams to flee their locker rooms.
CLEVELAND -- Every loss is supposed to count as one, but some sure feel like they count a lot more.So it was Saturday night with the Indians, who saw an excellent comeback turn into a crushing 7-6 defeat to the Washington Nationals.It was so crushing that manager Terry Francona called what happened in the top of the ninth inning heartbreaking, a rare use of an emotional word by the...
The Cleveland Indians may be thrilled to return home.
Justin Masterson may be the most relieved.
Coming off a lackluster road trip, the Indians hope Masterson can continue his home dominance in Friday night's series opener with the Washington Nationals.
Cleveland (32-33) opened a nine-game road trip by losing seven in a row before finding some solace in winning the last two,...

CLEVELAND -- Streaks happen.And the Indians have a small one going after they won a game for the sixth time this season on their last at-bat in Progressive Field.The team that won 18-of-22 and then lost 16-of-20 has won three in a row after beating Washington 2-1 with a bottom-of-the-ninth rally. But three good games does not mean the Indians are shrugging off what happened prior...
First and foremost, Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there who are celebrating with your kids today. There’s nothing more “Father’s Day” to me than a little bit of baseball, a little bit of U.S. Open Golf, and a whole lot of relaxing.
Well, some of us have to write a bit, but you get what I’m talking about.
To those that spend even a few extra minutes to stop...

The draft has come and gone, and now it is time for my annual post draft piece. It was a very interesting draft and as always had a lot of trends that I found while following it.
I have to start with the first pick Clint Frazier. He was fourth on my board and I had done enough research that he seemed like everything the Indians look for in players. In the end I will pat myself on...

CHARLOTTE- After splitting a doubleheader Friday night against the Charlotte Knights, the Columbus Clippers snatched a win Saturday night, 4-2.
Columbus’ offense boomed in the first inning scoring all four of their runs, while Charlotte was unable to make up for the deficit throughout the game. The Clippers retrieved three pitchers to finish the game, but all three pitched scoreless...
I know Cleveland has often been the subject of my ridicule – and it’s deserved. But there was a time in my life when I dabbled in Cleveland Indians baseball. Admittedly, as an early teenager it was hard not to get sucked into the 1996-2000 Cleveland Indians. I studied tape of Manny Ramirez’s swing and tried to model my offensive approach after him; hitting to all fields. Plus...
