The Indians recently stopped another losing streak against the New York Yankees, but still dropped the series to the A.L. East leading Yankees. This is the eight consecutive series the Indians have managed to lose or split.
Roberto Hernandez of the Indians had a no hitter through 5 2/3 innings in his last start. Hernandez, formerly known as Carmona, has been inconsistent ever since his breakout 2007 season in which he won 19 games.
For this reason alone, Tribe fans realize Hernandez could very well get knocked out early against Oakland tonight.
As the Indians are far out of contention, it is important for them to evaluate the team for next season, and this includes Hernandez. The Indians released Derek Lowe weeks ago, who was atrocious for Cleveland. The Yankees claimed Lowe, and Lowe contributed with a four inning save in his first appearance with New York. ‘
This is a perfect example of how desperate teams are for pitching, and why the Indians could move forward with Hernandez in ...

Roberto Hernandez had a rough outing and then he left the game with an injured ankle. What do you do with a guy like this? Roberto Hernandez’s time with the Cleveland Indians had to be coming to an end. The drama the Indians lived through this season isn’t worth the wait.

Last night while trying to avoid the actual topic of the Indians losing to the A’s 1 I decided it would be interesting to start discussing what kind of price Shin-Soo Choo could demand on the open market. We all like Choo (I think.) He is a player who should be part of any team’s solution as opposed to an issue. Still, he’s not to the level of a big-time premier free agent...

A lost series to the Yankees looks like a huge positive step forward as the Indians weren't swept after being swept in five of their last eight series. They haven't actually won a series in over a month, the last being at the end of July against Detroit when they were still in the playoff hunt. At this point, winning a single game is a momentous victory. Marred with two losing...
If you were one of the alleged 13,018 in attendance last night, I salute you. You are a real diehard. The rumor is the Indians season ticket base is about 8,500 or so. When STO made the not so wise decision to show overhead or long view shots of Progressive Field, it looked as though there were 3,500, maybe 4,000 tops in the stands. The Dolan family, Mark Shapiro, Chris Antonetti...
