Waiting For Next Year:
Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reported Friday night that third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall could rejoin the big league Indians when the Aeros wrap up their postseason in the next week (possibly as soon as tonight). Manager Manny Acta said he wouldn’t play every day if brought up:
“We have to make a decision if we’re going to bring him here or continue to play him at Lake County,” said Acta. “The fact is, he’s not going to come here and play every day right off the bat. There’s a very good chance we might add him on this trip.”
Acta did indicate that he’s ready to play and the broken bone he suffered in his wrist is healed. But the Tribe skipper said they would bring him along slow — probably a good idea considering what’s on the line for the Indians in the final month of the season. He’ll then move on to winter ball after the limited time in September.
Chisenhall was hitting .278/.297/.458 in 24 games before taking a Troy Patton pitch off the wrist at the end of June.

In the Indians' 7-6 win at Minnesota Friday night, Roberto Hernandez missed his second consecutive start
due to a sprained right ankle. Indians officials are being very vague about any timetable for the return of
Hernandez, who is wearing a walking boot on his foot. Hernandez has already missed most of the 2012 season, following his arrest for identity theft in his

While the 2012 MLB Trade Deadline has come and gone, it is never too early to think about what deals could be consummated after this season is over. One name that may not have come up before in trade talks is Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez, but that may have all changed now after Perez decided to speak out about ownership.
Perez was asked about some reasons why...
Ubaldo Jimenez was once a terrific young starting pitcher for the Colorado Rockies. He had tremendous raw talent and pitching acumen to boot. If harnessed, he figured to miss bats, keep the ball on the ground and limit walks while remaining on the effectively wild side. He could dial it up to 96 mph — average fastball velocity of 95.8 mph in 2007 — and threw a top-notch, looping...

The week leading up to the start of the NFL regular season has provided Cleveland with a stark juxtaposition in terms of words and reaction. As a handful of our nation’s best orators take to the stage in Charlotte, North Carolina, amidst the pomp and circumstance and Springsteen, those sequestered in Cleveland, Ohio have felt words, albeit more regionalized, reverberate though...
