Player of the Game Cord Phelps used great all around play to win his first Player of the Game of the season. His first home run of the year knocked in the Indians only two RBI of the game. He also made a great diving stop to save a run early in the game. His final POG score was 4.33. Feathers Up There will be no Will Smith as a rapper or football player references after what I did last time the Indians played against the Royals lefty. Frank Herrmann was apparently the corrent answer when Manny Acta chose to go with Chris Seddon to replace Ubaldo Jimenez. Herrmann instead came in relief for Seddon and got the final out of the fifth with a caught stealing before pitching a perfect sixth. Herrmann also got the first two outs in the 7th before being replaced by Tony Sipp. The Indians third run came when Jason Bourgeois misplayed a deep fly hit by Michael Brantley. Carlos Santana read the ball well and was able to score from first on the error. Feathers Down With Cord Ph...

Kotchmania Runs Wild One More Time At Progressive Field

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that Casey Kotchman is an All-Star caliber player. I’m also not going to tell you that First Base is a position where offense doesn’t matter.

Another second-half swoon for Indians' Cabrera

Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera returned to the lineup Friday night and had two of the Indians' 10 hits in their 6-3 loss to Kansas City. Cabrera missed Thursday's game due to a sprained right wrist.

Royals finally eliminated from playoffs

by John Viril— Today’s 15-4 drubbing at the hands of the Cleveland Indians ended the last remote possibility that the Royals could make the playoffs. That the team was still in theoretical contention as late as September 23 for the Central Division title is, I suppose, progress of a sort. In reality, the Royals playoff hopes were dashed during April’s 12-game losing streak...
