I’m a big time tribe fan who is just getting a little sick of Cleveland Indians management sitting there with their thumbs up their butts! Lots of free agents out there and Cleveland needing some right handed power. So here come the winter meetings annnndddd…NOTHING! Antonetti hinted at something unexpected to happen but the same nothing emerged. Man, quit lying to us!
Now with some power free agents out there and some signings going on, the Tribe is doing….. NOTHING….AGAIN! I had hoped we would have made a run at Josh Willingham but ohhhhno, the Twins got him. Aw shucks, huh? Well Michael Cuddyer would make a fine fit and has power, right? Ummm, looks like he’ll be going to the Rockies. Will you do ANYTHING, Antonetti?

Did you blow it all last year with the Jimenez trade? We ended up just under ...

Tom Hamilton signs multiyear extension to remain the "Voice of the Indians.'
Derek Falvey promoted, David Stearns hired outside to fill baseball operations' job.
The Cleveland chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America named Asdrubal Cabrera this year's recipient of the Bob Feller Man of the Year Award.
Even a Cleveland Indians fan doesn’t believe Asdrubal Cabrera is the best fielder in baseball:
I’m not saying Cabrera’s that bad of a fielder. You shouldn’t take his -19.1 FRAA at face value, and even his -11.8 UZR should be taken with a grain of salt. But even if you don’t put any stock in any of the five most popular sabermetric defensive stats—all of which put Cabrera...
