Burning River Baseball:
Draft Update: While the Indians had a day off yesterday in the field, they were involved in the top of the MLB amateur draft that goes on all weekend. The Indians had the fifth overall pick which they used to take high school outfielder/third baseman, Clint Frazier. Following that, the Tribe took seven straight pitchers (four left handed) and a second baseman to end the day. Rounds 11 through 40 will take place tomorrow as teams finish up the draft. We will bring you further analysis along with a complete list of players drafted after things wrap up.
Player of the Game
Drew Stubbs scored two of the Indians five runs and hit a solo home run late in the game to win his third award of the season. Nick Swisher also deserves credit here for his score of -4.49, giving him the worst game of the season for a fielder. He essentially single handedly lost the game when his errors are combined with his poor effort at the plate, including ending the game with a runner on second.

It’s pretty ridiculous that the world today gets their news from Twitter first. If you wanted, you could seemingly get a play by play of the entire game via the popular social media site. But just because someone tweets breaking news, doesn’t mean it’s credible…even if they are beat reporters for your favorite team. Twitter erupted yesterday with the news of the apparent...
