Rays 6 Indians 0: David Price Is Good at Baseball, Aaron Cunningham Isn’t

This is going to be one of those recaps that writes itself. Really, I could sum it up in a few short sentences (but what fun would that be!): David Price is a great young pitcher. He is left-handed. He entered the game 4-0 with a 2.01 ERA in five career starts against the Indians. The Tribe is not exactly what you would call an offensive juggernaut. Left-handed pitchers have little...

Indians promising aggressive trade talks

The Cleveland Indians are reminiscent of folks doing one of those line dances at a country bar. One step forward, two back, two sideways and another forward to end up at the exact same spot. Clap. Then start all over again. Following Tuesday nights loss to Tampa Bay another loss when a key hit could have meant a win they Indians are now 46-44 and four games behind the Chicago White...

Box Score: Indians 2, Rays 4

Four hits. That’s all the Indians could muster in this one. Even so, mix in five walks and they still had a chance. They just couldn’t get the big hit to push runners in. Bases loaded with no outs and all they got was one run on a sac fly.   Scoring Summary Bot 1st: Tampa Bay - C. Pena homered to deep right, B.J. Upton scored - L. Scott tripled to shallow right, B....

Q&A: Tyler Naquin, Indians First-Round Pick

Tyler Naquin has “future batting champion“ written all over him. The Cleveland Indians selected the 21-year-old outfielder with the 15th-overall pick of this year’s draft, and his sweet, left-handed stroke was the primary reason. He hit .381 over his sophomore and junior seasons at Texas A&M, prompting Baseball America to rate him the best pure hitter in the college ranks...

MLB Trade Deadline: The Cost of the “Wait and See” Approach

Late last week, while delivering his State of the Fan-Friendly Union, Cleveland Indians team president Mark Shapiro could not help but field questions about the upcoming MLB trade deadline. Sure, lowering the price of concessions and making Progressive Field more accessible are all well and good, but what about the product said (hopeful) increase in paying fans would ultimately view...

After ejection, Maddon blames ump for changing game with blown call

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon has plenty to be frustrated about as his team continues to struggle. In the seventh inning Wednesday, with a Rays 4-0 lead against the Cleveland Indians slipping away, he vented against plate umpire Dan Iassogna. There had been an extremely questionable strike-three call against Rays right fielder Matt Joyce in the sixth inning. Then in the seventh...

Rays recall Lueke to help bullpen

The Tampa Bay Rays, still feeling the effects from Monday's 15-inning, 5-hour loss to the Oakland Athletics, have called up right-handed reliever Josh Lueke. Lueke was with the Rays coming out of spring training and has an 18.90 ERA in three games with the big league club. The 6-foot-5-inch, 235-pounder was 1-3 with a 4.72 ERA for Triple-A Durham before getting recalled to the...

Price in peak form as Rays close out Indians

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. David Price donned his green St. Paddys Day ball cap and matching-colored tank top by his locker Thursday afternoon. That seemed like an especially appropriate look considering how Price keeps throwing those lucky sevens, the latest of which helped change the fortunes of the Tampa Bay Rays just when they needed it most. Price pitched seven superb innings...
