I got tired of all the criticism about my lack of follow through for Guest Post Week so I am repairing my image today. Do you all remember this horrible post written by G$ just a scant three weeks ago? If you don't want to click the link and give this site unnecessary page views that it does not deserve, it was a premature eulogy for YOUR Cleveland Windians. It is the normal trash that you expect from this site and a blatant smear campaign toward the crown jewel franchise of Major League Baseball.
In case you haven't noticed, and judging by your lack of #Tribetown tweets, you haven't, WE ARE ON FIRE!
So I decided to rectify that today with an open invitation for all the haters to hop back on the bandwagon. We're back, BABY! The Windians enter Sunday trailing the Motor City Kitty Cats by just one game and are PRIME to overtake them for good by the end of the week. I've never stopped believing in these guys. I've been listening to that Journey song ev...
BEST OF MAXIM
Major League Baseball announced today that Indians’ second baseman Jason Kipnis was the player of the week for the period ending June 30th-
“This marks Jason’s second career weekly honor and his second in the month of June after sharing the award with teammate Corey Kluber for the week ending June 17th. Tribe teammates Ryan Raburn and Justin Masterson have also been tabbed...
The Indians have announced outfielder Michael Bourn will be placed on the 3 day Paternity list while LHP Nick Hagadone has been called up from AAA Columbus to take Bourne’s spot on the roster.
“Bourn, 30, is batting .299 (69-231) with 12 doubles, one triple, 2 homers, 15 RBI and 33 runs scored across 56 games this season. He also ranks 2nd on the team with 11 stolen bases (11...
While Launching off with the Aeros was off during the past two weeks the Akron Aeros stumbled to a 5-10 record, falling to a 39-44 record. The team had been surging before this dry spell but now finds itself 5.5 games out of first place in the Western Division and in fifth place.
Despite the poor performance of the team as a whole, the Aeros got some good news recently as Carlos...
Danny Salazar (Columbus Clippers SP, game one): 5 IP, 2 H, 2 SO
Salazar had a strong outing on Monday night as he was economical with his pitches and runs in a close game against Durham; a club that totes former Indians Shelley Duncan and Chris Gimenez. Salazar threw 49 of his 64 pitches for strikes which is 76%. Danny also averaged a tick under thirteen pitches per inning. This...
Each month so far has seen a different player stand out as the best player for the month with Santana excelling in April and Masterson in May and June is no different with Kipnis destroying the competition. As has been with each case so far, the exemplary month was enough to put that player at number one in the rankings. Here's how the rest of the players fall after the Indians...
Seriously BROSEPH! You got NO IDEA how BADICAL this is gonna be! For you. For ME. FOR EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE O-H……….
Dude, if you can’t tell, I’m stoked like a frickin STOKE MACHINE!!
What happened is that while we was rakin’ mad wins all up and down the skizzy-schedule—it’s a skizzy-schedule I RESPECT, AND WANT TO PLAY FOR—what...
The Cleveland Indians open their July schedule someplace they haven't been in nearly six weeks - alone atop the AL Central.
The surging Indians look to extend their winning streak to five games in Tuesday night's series opener against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
After opening June 1-8, Cleveland (44-38) closed the month with 14 wins in 19 games to pull within...
It's been over 18 years since the Cleveland Indians swept a four-game series from the Chicago White Sox.
The Indians may have to get the best of Chris Sale on Sunday to end that drought, but that wasn't a problem in their last matchup with Chicago's ace.
Since losing a season-high eight straight, the Indians (43-38) have gone in the opposite direction by winning 13 of...
Last week Tony posted the first part of the IBI Stock Watch with a look at the players at Triple-A Columbus and Double-A Akron that are either raising or lowering their prospect value halfway through the 2013 season. Today, he takes a look at some of those showings at the High-A Carolina level, players like Joey Wendle, Francisco Lindor, Tyler Naquin, Jerrud Sabourin, Shawn Morimando...

“The Cleveland Indians, for instance, are a heavily flawed team succeeding on the back of perhaps one of the best offseasons in the free agent market we’ve seen...
It's the beginning of July and time for All-Star talk again. The Indians have been pretty good as a team this year (currently first in the AL Central) and have had stand outs among hitters, starters and relief pitchers. With the current state of voting, as usual, the Indians will not have a voted in starter in this years game (the last was Juan Gonzalez in 2001). This means their...
I feel like every Monday morning, I open with the same theme: The Indians are streaking. I dubbed them “Team Streak” about a month ago and nothing they do is making me change that moniker any time soon. Lets review:
From April 28th to to May 20th, the Tribe won 19 of 23 and played like one of the best team’s in baseball.
From May 21st to June 10th, they lost 16 of 20 and couldn’t...
Cleveland’s Jason Kipnis goes off, no one steals on the Dodgers and Cardinals, Chris Davis is still crushing it and Brandon Phillips loves the...
CHICAGO (AP) -- Justin Masterson pitched his major league-leading third shutout of the season and the Cleveland Indians completed their first four-game sweep in Chicago since 1948, beating the White Sox 4-0 Sunday.
Masterson (10-6) gave up six hits, struck out eight and walked one. He blanked the White Sox for the second time this year.
Masterson faced the minimum 18 batters through...
