Perhaps it is time to stop asking for more and just be happy with who Ubaldo Jimenez is right now as a pitcher. Jimenez took a no-hitter into the sixth inning Saturday night as the Indians beat Oakland 7-1 in front of a sellout crowd of 35067 at O.co Coliseum. The victory cut the A's lead in the race for the second wild card to three games over Baltimore and 3 1/2 over the Indians. The Tribe remained six games behind first-place Detroit in the AL Central. Here's the thing about Jimenez (9-7 4.00). Yes he had a no-hitter with one out in the sixth but there was no way he was getting through the inning. Rich Hill was already warming in the bullpen when Jimenez hit Josh Reddick with a pitch. After Yoenis Cespedes walked Bryan Shaw joined him. With double-barrel action in the pen Jimenez struck out Brandon Moss. He was already at 104 pitches the count fattened by five walks and eight strikeouts. When Josh Donaldson sent Jimenez's first pitch into center field for an RBI s...

A three year Indians review: Left Field

It is time to continue with the three-year comparisons for the Indians. At this point, it is too late in the year to do half-season comparisons, so I will be doing full season versus this year. Since there's only about 40 games left in the year this comparison will be close but not perfect. Both slash lines and wRC+ are rate-based stats, so this comparison should be fine. WAR...

Aguilar Sends Homer and Losing Streak Out of the Park

Akron, OH — It turns out that a change of scenery back to the friendly confines of Canal Park was exactly what the Aeros needed to snap their troublesome, six-game losing streak. Jesus Aguilar’s towering, tape-measure, three-run home run to left field in the bottom of the eighth inning rescued the Aeros from a 2-0 deficit, and led to a thrilling, 3-2 win over the Reading Fightin...

Why Scott Kazmir Should Be Sent to the Bullpen

On Sunday afternoon against Oakland, Scott Kazmir struggled in his second consecutive game, despite being giving more than a week off between starts.

Tribe Weekend Recap: Missed opportunities spawn series loss in Oakland

Another week and another huge series came upon our Cleveland Indians. This time, it wasn’t a division foe, but rather one of the teams they were facing for one of the two AL Wild Card spots in the Oakland Athletics.  The A’s are a lot like the Indians in that their offense leaves a lot to be desired and when you look at the lineup. It doesn’t wow you, but they hit you with...

8/18 Recap: Indians 3 - Athletics 7

Player of the Game With a solo home run, Ryan Raburn provided the Indians first run of the game. Raburn was lifted for a pinch-hitter after going 1-3, but still had a high enough POG score (2.99) to beat out Jason Kipnis (2.73) and Carlos Santana (1.99).
