Justin Masterson continues to struggle in the 2012 season as the Oakland A’s shut out the Indians 7-0. The Entire Indians offense continues to struggle. The season for the Indians has been in a steady decline since returning from the all Star break. The Indians pitcher Masterson pitched for 5-2/3′s and gave up 7 runs on 9 hits, 2 of those hits were home runs and he stuck out 5 and walked one. Masterson falls to 9-11 on the season and the Indians fall to 54-67 on the year, 13 games below .500. The Indians are now if fourth place in the A.L. central with the royals passing Cleveland by for third place. The Indians are now on a 5 game losing streak and the fans in Cleveland are hoping not to see another 11 game streak. The Indians are just going through the motions now. The team has no hope of seeing post season play after showing signs of promise early in the season. It is almost a carbon copy of last year. The Indians offense is not helping the situation either. In yesterdays game gu...

BP Unfiltered: Fact-Checking the Chris Perez Profanity-Laced Tirade by Ben Lindbergh

Before Sunday's game, Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez took a break from shagging flies, ambled over to the right-field foul line, and cursed out an A's fan. You'd think Perez would've known that players rarely come out ahead in public player-fan confrontations.

The Chris Perez Fan Interaction Video is Very Entertaining

Yesterday, the video of Cleveland Indians’ closer Chris Perez interacting with an Oakland A’s fan went all over the internet. Perez is known as a hot head, but this is just awesome.

Prime Nine: Cleveland Indians

With most of the farm systems, you could argue one way or another that they were as good as many of the other farm systems. Now, we get to our first farm system that will rank among the bottom group. There is very little to explain the Indians fall from grace. They’ve been competitive for the most part, but they haven’t lived in the playoffs. In short, they just...

Mariners 5 Indians 3: Speechless in Seattle

Yesterday, I uttered the phrase “I didn’t know what to say anymore” about this Indians team. 24 hours later, once again, they have left me speechless in the way they lost yet another game, their sixth in a row, this time to Eric Wedge and the Seattle Mariners. The days of good pitching, great defense, and timely hitting are long gone at this point. Now it’s essentially becoming...

Indians shut out, swept by A's

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Indians manager Manny Acta wants his team to relax despite the mounting losses. Shin-Soo Choo and Casey Kotchman each got two hits for Cleveland, but that wasn't nearly enough in a 7-0 loss to Oakland. Jarrod Parker pitched eight sharp innings while Coco Crisp homered and drove in five runs as the Athletics completed a three-game sweep. "You have...

8/19 Game Recap: Indians 0 - A's 7

Player of the Game Mr. Pure Rage, Chris Perez runs away with today's Player of the Game honors for pitching just one inning and getting a strike out. With the Indians down by 7 in the 8th inning, this was not a save situation. Perez, with a score of 1.27, has finally achieved his first PoG this year. Feathers Up Ezequiel Carrera stole a base, that has to be positive, right...

Cleveland and the Collapse

Is it possible for every team in a division to be disappointing? Probably not — somebody has to win, after all, and it is sort of hard to say that a division winner is disappointing (although I’m sure the New York and Boston medias can correct me on that). The 2012 American League Central is coming close to being completely disappointing, though, which is saying something, given...

Uh oh...Indians Chris Perez vs. A's fan on Video (NSFW)

((ht: larrybrownsports.com)) Wow!  Let's just say before we get into this story, we aren't defending either side in this one, because they were both wrong. Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez had a rather NSFW "discussion" with an Oakland A's fan who, according to our friends at Larry Brown Sports, had been harassing him for years. This time, the...
