Found July 28, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
The Tribe designated outfielder Aaron Cunningham for assignment on Wednesday to make room for the recently acquired Brent Lillibridge. Major League teams had three business days to claim Cunningham off of waivers. None did. WTAM’s Nick Comino tweets:
#Indians OF Aaron Cunningham cleared waivers, he has been sent down to Triple-A Columbus. This is not a surprise. — Nick Camino (@CaminoTribe) July 28, 2012
Cunningham is batting .175 with 1 HR and 7 RBI in 72 games (97 ABs) with the Tribe this season. It was Cunningham’s sacrifice squeeze on Tuesday night that gave the Indians the go-ahead run in their 3-2 victory over the Tigers.

Shin-Soo Choo Trade Rumors Heating Up

After getting swept by Minnesota this weekend, it is pretty reasonable to assume the Indians won’t be buyers at the trade deadline. The rumors are also heavy that they could be sellers with Shin-Soo Choo at the top of the list. Add #Reds to list of teams after Choo. Would be ideal as leadoff man, needed LH bat. Again, #Indians reluctant. Choo very tough to replace. — Ken Rosenthal...

Chris Perez Has Another Twitter Meltdown

Indians closer Chris Perez has a bit of a love/hate relationship with Tribe fans. While performing very well on the field, he tends to get a bit irritated with Cleveland fans. And they apparently tend to get a bit irritated with him. Perez has been openly critical of Tribe fans for what he believes is [...]

Masterson tasked with putting Tribe on track

The Cleveland Indians had their progress slowed by one of their worst pitching performances of the season. Judging by his recent starts in Minnesota, Justin Masterson could provide a better effort Saturday night. While seeking a season-high third straight win, the right-hander will try to help the Indians recover from their lopsided series-opening defeat to the Twins. Before heading...

Tribe back in the hunt as they hit the road

The Cleveland Indians embark on a nine-game road trip brimming with confidence after beating one of baseball's top pitchers to inch closer to the AL Central lead. The Minnesota Twins are well out of the playoff picture and return home in a state of disarray. The Indians look to build on an encouraging series and win for the fourth time in five games in Friday night's series...

No more half measures, Tribe

If only Mike from "Breaking Bad" was our GM. Last year's trade deadline deal for Ubaldo Jimenez seemed to indicate a sense of urgency by the Indians. Even in their previous "buy" year of 2007, an oh-so-close season that still aches my back teeth on occasion, the Indians didn't do anything on the trade front but bring back Kenny Lofton for a reunion...

Deduno seeks to build on first MLB win

The Cleveland Indians had their progress slowed by one of their worst pitching performances of the season. Judging by his recent starts in Minnesota, Justin Masterson could provide a better effort Saturday night. While seeking a season-high third straight win, the right-hander will try to help the Indians recover from their lopsided series-opening defeat to the Twins. Before heading...

About time to fork the 2012 Cleveland Indians

After the Cleveland Indians won last week’s series against the Detroit Tigers, not only did Cleveland fans think they could make a run at the A.L. Wildcard. They also thought that they could win the division. While I watched them play I couldn’t help but think, “Maybe this young team has found a way to get it done. Perhaps they have an effective starting pitcher that can throw...

Box Score: Twins 12, Indians 5

Justin Masterson cruised through the first three innings then imploded. Masterson gave up two runs in the fourth, three runs in the fifth and then finally was tagged for five runs in the sixth for a total of 10 runs in 5 2/3rds innings. Not that it really mattered. Twins pitcher Samuel Deduno (2-0, 3.13 ERA) held the Tribe to just one run (and two hits) over seven innings to get...

7/27 Game Recap: Indians 0 - Twins 11

Player of the Game Cody Allen pitched the best game of his young career as he threw two innings and only allowed two baserunners. He was even able to get one of those runners out on the bases with a double play as he was the only Indians pitcher to keep the Twins from scoring. His game score of 1.78 gives him an average Player of the Game score of 1.29 for the season, the best...

Masterson struggles with command in rout

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Samuel Deduno pitched seven strong innings for his second major league win and Josh Willingham hit his 27th homer of the season, leading the Minnesota Twins to a 12-5 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night. Deduno (2-0) allowed two hits and struck out a career-high six in his fourth big league start. Alexi Casilla drove in four runs for the Twins, who...

Box Score: Twins 5, Indians 1

After an exciting series versus the Tigers, the Indians came into Minnesota looking to solidify their playoff push and to firmly place themselves in the “buyers” portion of the trade market. They proceeded to get swept. Badly swept. The Tribe was outscored 28-6 in this three game debacle, where they had their two best pitchers (Masterson and Ubaldo) going against a below .500...

7/28 Game Recap: Indians 3 - Twins 12

Player of the Game Carlos Santana snagged this Player of the Game late with a meaningless two run home run down the left field line. Santana also knocked in the first run of the game for a final Player of the Game score of 5.22. No one else did anything worth mentioning so it was nice of Santana to provide some kind of bright spot. Feathers Up Justin Masterson got the first...
