Found July 20, 2012 on Cleveland Sports 360:
The Cleveland Indians were hoping Ubaldo Jimenez was finding his form. Jimenez has shown flashes of brilliance this season on occasion, his last two games were not one of those occasions. The Indians lost their last game of the Tampa Bay series and it was Ubaldo Jimenez that took the loss. Jimenez now moves to 8-9 on the year. Jimenez gave up five runs on seven hits, he walked five showing he is still having troubles finding the strike zone. The Indians are in serious trouble. The pitching staff needs another guy that can go out there and control the strike zone. The Team needs to find a guy to hit the ball consistently too. The Indians return home to take on the Orioles and then the Detroit Tigers make a trip to Cleveland. If the Indians can’t get their offense going by the time these two series are over the Tribe could be out of the play-off picture totally. There is a lot of baseball left to play. The problem is the Cleveland Indians are not playing very good baseball at all rig...

Hernandez will address the...

Antonetti: “The guys that are here need to play to their potential.”

The quote in the title of the piece is from Chris Antonetti. It is something that we’ve heard several times from the front office this season. It doesn’t take a genius to know that if Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez were pitching like a pair of aces the Indians would have a better record and would likely be in first in the division. It also doesn’t take a genius to know...

Q&A: Tyler Naquin, Indians First-Round Pick

Tyler Naquin has “future batting champion“ written all over him. The Cleveland Indians selected the 21-year-old outfielder with the 15th-overall pick of this year’s draft, and his sweet, left-handed stroke was the primary reason. He hit .381 over his sophomore and junior seasons at Texas A&M, prompting Baseball America to rate him the best pure hitter in the college ranks...

Top Play: Johnny Damon leaps into the stands

MLB Trade Deadline: The Cost of the “Wait and See” Approach

Late last week, while delivering his State of the Fan-Friendly Union, Cleveland Indians team president Mark Shapiro could not help but field questions about the upcoming MLB trade deadline.

Box Score: Orioles 10, Indians 2

Rays 6 Indians 0: David Price Is Good at Baseball, Aaron Cunningham Isn’t

This is going to be one of those recaps that writes itself. Really, I could sum it up in a few short sentences (but what fun would that be!): David Price is a great young pitcher. He is left-handed. He entered the game 4-0 with a 2.01 ERA in five career starts against the Indians. The Tribe is not exactly what you would call an offensive juggernaut. Left-handed pitchers have little...
