Andre Thornton was the first full time designated for the Cleveland Indians. The Tribe spent the first few years after the implementation of the DH in 1973 plugging in various players, but didn't really have anyone who fit the role until Thornton. From 1977 until 1979 he played first and lead the team as the top offensive player. He then missed all of the 1980 season and was...

Derek Lowe. Kevin Slowey. Now, Jon Garland.
Are the Indians throwing numbers up against the wall and hoping that a couple of them stick? Well, yes, that is exactly what they are doing.
At the end of the 2011 season, The Indians had Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez, the man formerly known as Fausto Carmona, and Josh Tomlin (I know he was hurt, but the Indians shut him down once they...
In a recent sit-down with the Plain Dealer, Cleveland Indians general manager Chris Antonetti stated that the team has received documentation that starting pitcher Fausto Carmona is officially named Roberto Hernandez (Heredia).
Arrested in January under suspicion of false identity, Hernandez, who was the recent recipient of a $7 million club option under his alias, was also found...
Kosuke Fukudome, the outfielder who had a cup of coffee with the 2011 Indians only to provide some surprise offensive prowess, has reportedly signed a one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox.
The contract will net the 34-year-old $1 million with a $3.5 million club option in 2013. Between the Cubs and Indians in 2011, Fukudome batted .262 with an OPS of .712. With the injuries sustained...
I had the opportunity through 93.1 The Fan in Lima to sit down for a few minutes with Indians radio broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus. It was my first opportunity to meet him and I came away impressed.
Rosenhaus was named Tom Hamilton’s partner for the 2012 season back in December, replacing the retiring Mike Hegan. Rosenhaus has been involved in production for the Indians for the past...
Jon Garland. Not bad! Alright, with there being literally nothing else to talk about, and with the primary just around the corner on March 6 (that will effectively decide the election), today’s as good a day as any to take a quick look at the race for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor, especially since the Plain Dealer ran a series of candidate profiles yesterday by Leila Atassi.
What else can baseball fans do in January but dream of October? In You May Say I'm a Dreamer, the Outside Corner staff will imagine the route to a World Series in 2012 title for all 30 teams.
The very notion of a team from Cleveland winning a championship is one that only exists in dreams, but in 2012, that dream finally came true when the Indians were on the receiving end...
The Chicago White Sox announced that they have signed Kosuke Fukudome to a one-year. The deal calls for a salary of $500k in 2012 and also includes a club option for 2013 at $3.5mm with a $500k buyout.
Fukudome who made his MLB debut with the Cubs in 2008, was traded to the Indians at the most recent trade deadline.
In 59 games in for the Indians in the AL Central, Fukudome hit ...
Today, former Indians and Cubs outfielder Kosuke Fukudome signed with the Chicago White Sox, for the low cost of $1 million. When I saw this, I immediately began to think how great of a fit he would have been with the Braves, especially at that price.The Braves' fourth outfielder right now is Matt Diaz, with Jose Constanza looking to rip that title from him. We all know what...
Kosuke Fukudome agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract with the Chicago White Sox that guarantees $1 million. He will get a $500,000 salary this year, and the White Sox have a $3.5-million option for 2013 with a $500,000 buyout.
