Found April 25, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
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
“The blackbird flies at midnight!” – “what does that mean again?!” Kyle Hakkarainen
“wanna scare the fans into thinking i might blow a save?”
“yeah, let’s do it” Cody Miller
Santana-”This isn’t the California Penal league Perez, so cut the crybaby stuff!” Austen Gray ‎
“Hey, Carlos, I’m gonna try to blow the save.” Brandon Webb ‎
“Dude, I already ordered delivery. Finish this up so I can go eat my pizza.” Jay Butcher
I forgot to brush, me too! Andrew Milligan ‎
“You lick the inside of your glove when your nervous ? Yeah, me too” Robbie Schneider
Santana: “No… I don’t think they like your Bob Wickman/Joe Borowski imitation at all, Chris.” CJ O’Leary ‎
“Forget the curve ball, Perez. Throw him the heater.” Rebekah Milford
Santana: “You’re methodology is more questionable than Kyra Sedgwick’s” Trevor Jackson
Santana: Perez? Is that your real last name? Matt Olschlager
Santana: I can’t wait till the dolans re-locate us to a city that will draw more than 12 people to a game. Mark Szczepanik ‎
“Whoa! Mine smells like apricots too!” Gabriel Venditti
Does your glove smell like your mom too? You know what? I’m not so sure if that last one kept it clean or not. Thanks for playing along and thanks for helping us reach the 2000 “likes” plateau on our Facebook page. We’ve spent a long time trying to figure out how to make it more than just a link dump. Hope it continues to be an interesting place to visit as well as WFNY.

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...

How The Indians Should Handle the Addition of Johnny Damon

The Cleveland Indians are coming off of a recent 9-game road trip during which they went 7-2. It was an impressive trip and gives them the second best road record in baseball behind the Rangers. The Indians return home this week and Shelley Duncan remains the starter in left field. This may change soon enough though, as Johnny Damon is set to join the team in a matter of weeks....

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...

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...

Indians 4 Royals 3: Tribe Keeps Royals Sinking, Move Into First

As a baseball fans, you know there are those games in which your team should win but end up losing. Then there are the games that your team has no business winning, yet does anyways. Last night in front of a sparse crowd at Progressive Field, your Cleveland Indians pulled off the latter. How else can you explain the 4-3 victory in which the Tribe loaded the bases with nobody out...

Random Athlete Of The Day- Kirk Saarloos

The former righty pitcher Kirk Saarloos is from Long Beach, California and graduated high school from Valley Christian High (school was founded in 1935 in case you were wondering). Kirk was a three-sport athlete in baseball, soccer, and football but decided to pursue baseball at Cal State Fullerton. In his first three seasons Kirk was strictly a relief pitcher out of the bullpen...

Indians hand Royals 12th consecutive loss

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Derek Lowe allowed one run over six innings and the Cleveland Indians handed the Kansas City Royals their 12th straight loss, 4-3 on Tuesday night. The Royals have been outscored 73-44 during the streak, which ties for third-longest in team history. They also lost 12 in a row in 1997 and 2008. Kansas City lost 13 straight in 2006 and had a team-record 19 consecutive...

4/26 Game Recap: Royals 4 - Indians 2

Player of the Game With a score of 3.32, a relief pitcher once a gain takes home the Player of the Game for the 3rd time this year. Joe Smith won his first award, pitching 1.2 perfect innings in today's loss. Feathers Up Since I complained about it so much last season, I feel that I should mention it when the Indians do the right thing. I am very happy with backup catcher...

Royals end 12-game losing streak, beat Indians 8-2

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Billy Butler hit two of Kansas City's four home runs to help the Royals snap a 12-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Indians 8-2 Wednesday night. Butler's two-run blast off Ubaldo Jimenez (2-1) put the Royals ahead in the first. He added a solo shot in the ninth off reliever Jairo Asencio, following Alex Gordon's three-run homer against the...

Feathers Up Aaron Cunningham knocked in his first run of the season today...

Royals-Indians Preview

A series against the Kansas City Royals provided just what the Cleveland Indians needed to break out of a slow start to this season and get some momentum going for a successful road trip. When they return home, the Indians will try again to add to the Royals' misery. Cleveland will seek its eighth win in 10 games Tuesday night by continuing its recent mastery of the Royals...
