Found July 17, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

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.

Indians Release Trevor Crowe

In the shortest press release I’ve ever seen, the Indians today released AAA outfielder Trevor Crowe. “Columbus transaction: OF TREVOR CROWE was released.” Crowe was the Indians 1st round pick in the 2005 draft. He was the 14th overall pick. Crowe played 205 games for the Indians (bet you could make some money off that stat) and had a lifetime .245 average with 3 home runs...

Video: Justin Masterson Interview on MLB Network

Justin Masterson was a guest on MLB Network’s The Rundown yesterday. Here is the video from the show- Highlights- Justin Masterson on why the team can stay in the race this season: “What’s great about this year is we haven’t really been playing our best baseball, but we’ve been able to stay at least close to the top. We’ve been up and down, but we’ve been consistent...

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...

Hafner, Santana get bumped down in Indians' batting order

The Indians got a much needed win Monday night, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 in a well-pitched game that also featured a new-look Cleveland lineup. Manager Manny Acta shook up the middle of his order, moving designated hitter Travis Hafner and catcher Carlos Santana down. Hafner and Santana have been struggling for much of the season, and in particular of late. One or the other...

WFNY Wednesday Wahoos: Indians Minor League Weekly Review 7/18

Each and every Wednesday, I try to bring you all of the news and notes from the Cleveland Indians minor league system. Enjoy. Last Thursday, I traveled off to Lake County to get the scoop on the Captains. Also included in this week’s edition of the Wahoos is the latest on some top prospects’ hot streaks, a no-hitter, some reliever promotions and a rehabbing lefty on his way...

Rays hope Joyce's return sparks offense

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Matt Joyce fought his way through a torrential rainstorm Monday night, driving into town after a brief rehab assignment in Daytona. It was like a monsoon or something, it was brutal, he said Tuesday afternoon by his locker inside the Tampa Bay Rays clubhouse. I had to slow down to make sure I made it here. Inclement weather aside, Joyce couldnt get back to...

Tomlin looks to pick up where he left off

While Matt Moore entered 2012 with very high expectations, he wasn't able to find much consistency during the first half of the season. He could get off to a rough start to the second against a Cleveland Indians club that hit him hard just over a week ago. Moore tries to avenge one of his more disappointing outings as the Tampa Bay Rays continue a four-game set with the visiting...

Opinions on an Idiot

Nick Hagadone had it made. He was a huge piece of the a trade that sent an Indians superstar (Victor Martinez) away and the Indians always over value the players brought back in such deals. He pitched well in a short time in 2011, and well enough this Spring to make him the first relief pitcher called up from AAA this year. In the pros he was good enough to earn the top left hander...

7/17 Game Recap: Indians 2 - Rays 4

Player of the Game Tony Sipp pitched strong in relief today, which was enough to win him Player of the Game honors. Sipp came on with 2 outs in the 6 inning and continued to pitched through the 7th. He did not allow a single runner and struck one out, giving him a score of 1.82. After 90 games into the season, Sipp finally wins his first PoG. Feathers Up Tribe hitters took advantage...

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...

Rays can go either way with pitchers

The industry-wide assumption is that if the Tampa Bay Rays fall out of contention, the pitcher they will trade is right-hander James Shields. Not necessarily. The Rays, deep in starting pitching, are open to moving any of their right-handed starters, major league sources say. A trade of Shields or Jeremy Hellickson likely would signal that the team is conceding the season. A trade...

Long break hampers Rays' Cobb

Alex Cobb was concerned about the effects of a nine-day break between starts. As it turns out, he had good reason. The Tampa Bay Rays right-hander struggled in his first start since July 6, lasting only 3 1/3 innings while walking five Monday in a 3-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians. In an effort to combat the inactivity, Cobb threw the equivalent of three innings in a simulated...
