Kipnis homered to deep center Top 3rd: Oakland - C. Crisp homered to deep right Top 4th: Oakland - G. Kottaras doubled to shallow center, Y. Cespedes, S. Smith and J. Donaldson...

Indians call up three minor leaguers

The Cleveland Indians expanded their roster to 28 players Saturday by recalling infielder Russ Cansler and left-hander Scott Barnes from Class AAA Columbus and purchasing the contract of outfielder Thomas Neal from Class AA Akron. Canzler, 26, hit .265 with 36 doubles, 22 home runs and 79 RBI in 130 games. Barnes, 24, was 2-3 with a 3.98 ERA in 31 games for Columbus. In three...

The Cleveland Indians have attendance issues

The Indians game with the A's on Thursday started at 12:05 PM. Zack Meisel of MLB.com took this picture and posted it on Twitter at 12:02, just three minutes before first pitched. He said he counted 1,555 fans in the crowd. I mean...wow. That's bad. The Indians are just 11-34 since the All-Star Break, and haven't drawn a crowd of more than 15,000 in this series...

Photo: Boy, Indians fans really packed the ballpark today (spoiler: they did not)

Goodness gracious, Cleveland Indians fans. That’s Major League-level apathy right there. The photo, courtesy of a tweet from MLB.com’s Zack Meisel at 12:02 p.m. for a 12:05 game at Progressive Field for a matinee against the Oakland Athletics (Meisel tweets that he counted 1,555 fans in the crowd), pretty much provides photographic evidence that the entire [...]

A's complete four-game sweep of Indians

CLEVELAND -- For a team leading the wildcard race, the Oakland A's couldn't have hand-picked a better opponent to play in the four-game series that ended Thursday. The A's, who have won six games in a row, and 12 of their last 14, took advantage of the reeling Cleveland Indians, belting four home runs and beating Cleveland 12-7. Oakland is 9-2 vs. Cleveland this year...

Indians pitch their way past Rangers

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jeanmar Gomez and three Cleveland relievers combined to beat the Texas Rangers 4-3 and the Indians snapped a six-game losing streak Saturday night. The win was Cleveland's sixth in 34 games since July 27. Texas entered with a four-game lead in the AL West over Oakland and lost for just the fifth time in 16 games. Gomez worked 5 2-3 innings. Joe Smith, Esmil...

A’s 12 Indians 7: Someone Please Save Me! I Am Going Insane!

Which route should I take this time after another loss and a sweep at the hands of the Oakland Athletics? Should I discuss how after another uninspiring outing, Justin Masterson continues to be unimpressive while catching about 2% of the heat Ubaldo Jimenez does, despite the fact that they have been essentially the same exact pitcher most of the season? Masterson couldn’t get out...

A's look to continue roll against hapless Tribe

At this time of year, it's important for playoff hopefuls to take advantage of games against non-contending clubs. The Oakland Athletics have had no trouble adhering to this standard against the Cleveland Indians. The surging Athletics look to beat the free-falling Indians for the seventh time in as many meetings over the last two weeks in Thursday's season finale at Progressive...

Looking for Leaders in the Cleveland Indians Clubhouse

“Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.” — President Harry S. Truman When Carlos Santana opted to not run out a ground ball in the sixth inning of Wednesday night’s game against the Oakland Athletics...

Where We At? August 2012

With the worst months in Indians history over there wasn't much movement up or down the power rankings. Most of the movement that did occur happened because seven new players were added to the 25 man roster.  1. Shin-Soo Choo Even (+1) 30 SO: This is the first time for Choo in the number one spot after being held by Hafner for a month, then Kipnis for the rest of the year...

Indians continue slump, swept by A's

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jarrod Parker pitched into the sixth inning and Oakland hit four home runs, leading the Athletics to their sixth straight win, a 12-7 victory over the free-falling Cleveland Indians on Thursday and a sweep of the four-game series. Oakland, which has won eight of nine, maintained its one-game lead over Baltimore for the top spot in the AL wild card race. George...

Athletics pound Indians with 4 HRs

The only downside for the Oakland Athletics is that they don't play the Cleveland Indians again this season. Oakland capped a four-game sweep of the free-falling Indians with a 12-7 victory on Thursday. The Athletics, who have won six straight and eight of nine, finish the season series against Cleveland with an 8-2 record. After dropping the first two games in April, Oakland...

8/31 Game Recap: Rangers 5 - Indians 3

Player of the Game Casey Kotchman hit a 9th inning home run, giving him tonight's Player of the Game with a score of 4.48. Feathers Up August is officially over. Maybe it was just an August curse and the Indians will go back to playing winning baseball and finish strong in September. The Indians have the opportunity to expand their rosters soon, so maybe some young blood...
