Found April 09, 2013 on Fox Sports Ohio:
CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Indians have placed catcher Lou Marson on the 15-day disabled list with a neck strain sustained in a home-plate collision. Marson was bowled over Saturday night at Tampa Bay by Desmond Jennings. Marson did not suffer a concussion, and manager Terry Francona said the backup was making progress. However, the team placed Marson on the DL for the first time in his career before Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees. The Indians recalled catcher Yan Gomes from Triple-A Columbus and selected the contract of catcher Omir Santos from the Clippers. The Indians are thin behind the plate after starter Carlos Santana bruised his left thumb in the ninth inning of Monday's home opener. X-rays were negative and Santana is day to day. The moves delay the expected activation of designated hitter Jason Giambi.

Tribe Weekend Recap: Baseball Is a Strange Game

We’ve waited a long time for the much anticipated 2013 Cleveland Indians season to begin. The complete makeover of the team, a culture change if you will, has been universally lauded across our fair city. It starts with manager Terry Francona.

After 820 Games, Sellout Streak Ends for Red Sox at Fenway Park

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone likes to have their predictions come true. That’s certainly the case here.
