Is Ubaldo Back?

Last summer when the Indians dealt for Ubaldo Jimenez, there is no doubt they felt like they were acquiring a young front line starter. That hasn't been the case yet. Jimenez made 11 starts for the Tribe last year, and posted an ugly 5.10 ERA. Advanced metrics suggested he was unlucky, with his xFIP, FIP, tERA, and SIERA sitting in the high three range.

Reds 12 Indians 5: Swept In Cincinnati By The Brandon Phillips Show

Team President Mark Shapiro was a highly thought of and for the most part successful General Manager with the Indians before being bumped up stairs. He fleeced the Mariners in getting Asdrubal Cabrera and Shin-Soo Choo in separate deals for the “Benuardo” first base platoon (Ben Broussard and Eduardo Perez). He got Carlos Santana for Casey Blake and Travis Hafner for Einar Diaz...

Stealing one in Baltimore

This series in Baltimore has certainly not gone the Pirates' way through two games, but at least they have a favorable pitching matchup to try and sneak out of Baltimore with one win tonight as Erik Bedard goes up against Tommy Hunter.
