Hits keep coming for Indians' Hannahan

Sometimes it takes a player a long time to be in the right place at the right time, but that appears to be the case with Jack Hannahan. The veteran third baseman has seemingly found a home in Cleveland, and he's off to the best start of his career. Hannahan's two-run double Tuesday capped a three-run, fifth-inning rally that helped carry the Indians to a 4-3 win over Kansas...

Up is Down. Left is Right. Jack Hannahan is…Good?

It’s easy to forget that Jack Hannahan is still a Major League Baseball player—at least in part—because of Gavin Floyd. Because until Floyd broke Jason Donald’s left hand with a high-and-tight fastball on March 6 of last year, Donald was slated to be the Indians’ bridge to Lonnie Chisenhall.  The best laid plans of Mark and Chris… Of course, even after Donald’s injury...

Chris Perez, Carlos Santana and fun with captions

Last night on the WFNY Facebook page I posted the following picture, asked for captions and told everyone to “keep it clean!” (Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images) Greg Pennypacker ‎ “hey chris…this crowd thinks we’re going to win this game easy…” “make it close?” “make it close.” Collin Jones ‎ “This is what Brian Wilson’s beard looks like.” Brad Hollo...

Is Jack Hannahan The Next Casey Blake?

The following piece is something that I never thought I would write. I also still to this day cannot understand the immense love for Casey Blake that the Indians fans and the organization itself had for this guy. Readers of this site know that I have been a Blake hater for years. But nevertheless, I saw and appreciated his value and there will be a point to all of this. GM Chris...

Choo Goes Down As Indians Beat Royals In Series Opener

The Indians won the game tonight against the Kansas City Royals 4-3 in the series opener. The Cleveland Indians could wake up tomorrow morning in a three way tie for first place. The bad news is Shin-Soo Choo left the game with a hamstring injury. If Choo misses any kind of time in right field one has to wonder what the Indians are going to do to fill the outfield. The Tribe has...

Jimenez's elevated pitch counts remain a concern for Indians

The quality of Ubaldo Jimenez's pitches are usually as much of a problem as the quantity. The big right-hander again ran into a high pitch count Wednesday in the Cleveland Indians' 8-2 loss the visiting Kansas City Royals. Jimenez pitched six innings, but he needed 113 pitches to do so, and he gave up a pair of two-run homers that gave Kansas City an early 4-0 lead. In...
