Found June 27, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

A ninth inning rally makes this box score look respectable. The Indians dropped to one game over .500 and 1.5 games behind the White Sox. Jack Hannahan was ejected for arguing with the 3B ump, who clearly botched a call.

Umpire admits mistake on Hannahan foul ball

In the seventh inning of last night’s game, Tribe third baseman Jack Hannahan hit a foul ball into the seats on the third base side. Yankees left fielder Dewayne Wise leaped into the stands and got leather on the ball, but did not make the catch. That didn’t stop umpire Mike DiMuro from calling it a catch however. Hannahan would be tossed later in the game for arguing the call...

Report: Hafner to begin rehab assignment

Travis Hafner will begin a rehab assignment tonight in Columbus. No timetable has been given for his return, but it is safe to say 3-5 games would be about right. Hafner was placed on the DL May 30th, and underwent a right medial meniscectomy (knee) on the 31st. It was generally assumed that Hafner would be back right after the All-Star break, but if he has no set-backs on his rehab...

Indians Roster Moves: Vinny Rottino claimed off waivers, Chris Schwinden DFA’d

We saw some moves coming up soon, but this likely isn’t what we were looking for. The Indians made a pair of small moves today, as they claimed IF/OF Vinny Rottino off outright waivers from the New York Mets. The versatile 32-year-old journeyman is expected to join the AAA Columbus roster and, of course, will be on the 40-man roster. In 511 career AAA games, he’s a .294/.360...

Indians pitcher suspended 3 weeks

Cleveland Indians pitcher Roberto Hernandez was suspended Saturday for three weeks by Major League Baseball for age and identity fraud. Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said in a statement that Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona, has received a visa to return to the United States and that he would be eligible to rejoin the team Aug. 11. Hernandez will address the...

6/27 Game Recap: Indians 4 - Yankees 5

Player of the Game Jason Kipnis and Shelley Duncan battled for today's Player of the Game, but it was Kipnis who squeaked by for the win. Jason Kipnis had 2 singles and an RBI to give him a score of 1.70. Duncan's doubled and had an RBI, giving him a score of 1.68. Kipnis has now won a team-high 9 PoGs this season. Feathers Up The Indians took an early 1-0 lead when...

Kipnis Shakes Things Up At Second Base

Last season was a banner year for second basemen in terms of fantasy baseball. The usual suspects (Cano, Pedroia, Kinsler, Phillips) all had excellent years, while guys like Ben Zobrist, Howie Kendrick, and Ryan Roberts also put up big years. Coming into 2012, second base was a position fantasy owners felt like they could count on for big production in the middle infield. Unfortunately...

BP Unfiltered: Casey Kotchman and Mike Napoli Chase History by R.J. Anderson

Are you a fan of witnessing baseball history? If so then start rooting against Casey Kotchman and Mike Napoli getting hits. That’s because Kotchman and Napoli would become the first players since 2002 to sandwich a season of hitting .300 between two seasons with sub-.250 batting averages. To date, 14 players have accomplished the feat: Player ...

6/26 Game Recap: Indians 4 -Yankees 6

Player of the Game Maybe it's a good thing that Jack Hannahan was ejected tonight. His replacement, Jose Lopez, took advantage of his only at bat with a 3-run home run in the 9th inning. In just one at bat, Lopez scored 5.75 points, winning him his 6th Player of the Game and his 2nd in 3 games. Feathers Up The Indians did not get shut out due to a rally in the top of the...

A Little Help for Chris Perez

So Chris Perez is confused about Cleveland fans again. We’ve already been over the Indians closer’s incredibly myopic complaints about attendance at Progressive Field that he renewed in a recent interview with Tyler Kepner of the New York Times, but now Perez is complaining about the attendance at Cleveland Browns Stadium as well. “I don’t understand,” Perez told Kepner...

Game 72: Cano, Kuroda Beat Cleveland

The Japanese right-hander went 7 innings with the only run he allowed coming after he had [...]

Dewayne Wise makes phantom catch, umpire buys it

Just watch this whole minute and then give me a word to describe the call made by umpire Mike Dimuro.  Yankees left fielder Dewayne Wise made an athletic attempt jumping into the stands to catch a ball hit by Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan. Hannahan was actually ejected by Dimuro for arguing the call.  The Yankees won the game 6-4,

BP Unfiltered: Today in Entirely Speculative Out Calls by Ben Lindbergh

Everyone cuts corners. Yeah, if you don't do the reading for class, you probably won't get called on. Sure, that stadium is probably up to code. And that left fielder who fell into the stands? He probably held on to the ball. It's always easier not to do an inspection. Most of the time, cutting corners doesn't come back to bite you. When it does, it can be embarrassing...
