Found July 16, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

In the shortest press release I’ve ever seen, the Indians today released AAA outfielder Trevor Crowe.

“Columbus transaction: OF TREVOR CROWE was released.”

Crowe was the Indians 1st round pick in the 2005 draft. He was the 14th overall pick. Crowe played 205 games for the Indians (bet you could make some money off that stat) and had a lifetime .245 average with 3 home runs, and 29 stolen bases over three season for the Tribe.

Does it make sense to release a player this close to the trade deadline? Then again, Crowe probably wasn’t on many teams’ radar.


Video: Justin Masterson Interview on MLB Network

Justin Masterson was a guest on MLB Network’s The Rundown yesterday. Here is the video from the show- Highlights- Justin Masterson on why the team can stay in the race this season: “What’s great about this year is we haven’t really been playing our best baseball, but we’ve been able to stay at least close to the top. We’ve been up and down, but we’ve been consistent...

Hafner, Santana get bumped down in Indians' batting order

The Indians got a much needed win Monday night, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 in a well-pitched game that also featured a new-look Cleveland lineup. Manager Manny Acta shook up the middle of his order, moving designated hitter Travis Hafner and catcher Carlos Santana down. Hafner and Santana have been struggling for much of the season, and in particular of late. One or the other...

Tribe 9, Jays 11: It Wasn’t As Close As It Appears, and That’s Ubaldo’s Fault

This one was a doozy. The Cleveland Indians obviously should have lost by quite a bit more to Toronto Saturday afternoon, and that’s all on Ubaldo Jimenez. The former Colorado Rockies ace had his worst outing of 2012, exiting after just 2.1 innings pitched. Against the 18 batters he faced, he allowed eight runs on seven hits (including two homers and four doubles), along with four...

Rays begin four-game series with Indians

The Cleveland Indians' Zach McAllister was in line for a third straight win earlier this month before running into trouble in his final inning against the Tampa Bay Rays. The rookie right-hander will try for a better outing in his second consecutive start against the Rays on Monday night, while Tampa Bay's Alex Cobb seeks to build off a win in Cleveland just before the All...

Tomlin looks to pick up where he left off

While Matt Moore entered 2012 with very high expectations, he wasn't able to find much consistency during the first half of the season. He could get off to a rough start to the second against a Cleveland Indians club that hit him hard just over a week ago. Moore tries to avenge one of his more disappointing outings as the Tampa Bay Rays continue a four-game set with the visiting...

Indians Weekend Wrapup: Unimpressive Start To The Second Half

The long All-Star break brought about some hard truths for our Wahoos. While they were just two and half games out of first, their margin of error was (and is) a lot slimmer than their rivals, the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers. The bats need to become more consistent one through nine. The starting rotation needs to get stronger. The bullpen needs to get some depth beyond...

Box Score: Indians 2, Rays 4

Four hits. That’s all the Indians could muster in this one. Even so, mix in five walks and they still had a chance. They just couldn’t get the big hit to push runners in. Bases loaded with no outs and all they got was one run on a sac fly.   Scoring Summary Bot 1st: Tampa Bay - C. Pena homered to deep right, B.J. Upton scored - L. Scott tripled to shallow right, B....

Opinions on an Idiot

Nick Hagadone had it made. He was a huge piece of the a trade that sent an Indians superstar (Victor Martinez) away and the Indians always over value the players brought back in such deals. He pitched well in a short time in 2011, and well enough this Spring to make him the first relief pitcher called up from AAA this year. In the pros he was good enough to earn the top left hander...

Indians, Jays battle for series victory today

After a rough first game following the All-Star break, the Toronto Blue Jays showed they still have a lot of pop in their lineup. Right-hander Carlos Villanueva is trying to show he belongs in the rotation. Villanueva makes his third start of the season Sunday when Toronto concludes its season series with the Cleveland Indians. Held to five singles by Justin Masterson while getting...

Choo's doubles help Tribe past Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Zach McAllister took a line drive to the forearm and kept right on pitching. The Cleveland right-hander shrugged off the scary moment to finish six solid innings Monday night, and the Indians held on to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2. McAllister (4-1) said he was not affected by being struck by Jeff Keppinger's RBI single in the fourth inning. Unfazed...

7/17 Game Recap: Indians 2 - Rays 4

Player of the Game Tony Sipp pitched strong in relief today, which was enough to win him Player of the Game honors. Sipp came on with 2 outs in the 6 inning and continued to pitched through the 7th. He did not allow a single runner and struck one out, giving him a score of 1.82. After 90 games into the season, Sipp finally wins his first PoG. Feathers Up Tribe hitters took advantage...

‘Rapid’ Robert Feller

Did World War II save Bob Feller’s pitching career? At the conclusion of the 1941 campaign, the Cleveland Indians wunderkind, Bob Feller, had amassed a 107-54 record, 1448.33 IP, 1233 K, 815 BB, and 117 CG…. all before turning 23 years old! “The Heater from Van Meter” became the first MLB player to voluntarily enlist for combat service in WWII the day after the attack on...
