BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
It’s been suggested recently on Twitter and elsewhere that it might make some sense for the Indians to consider trading Asdrubal Cabrera. For serious.
And after spraying my lunch all over my phone, I thought about it a bit. Could it possibly make sense to trade one of our core pieces and arguably our best offensive player while he’s still under club control for two more years...
The off-season has already been a bit of a whirlwind for veteran right-handed pitcher Derek Lowe. In September, Lowe started five games for the Atlanta Braves, a month that ended with the sinker-ball pitcher boasting a tumultuous 8.75 ERA and a WHIP of 1.99 with the opposition hitting succeeding at a sky-high rate of .373. With his Atlanta Braves collapsing and infusing young...
Frank Herrmann pitches in relief for the Cleveland Indians. As a graduate of Harvard College, he’s one of my favorite players. Herrmann’s strength as a pitcher is his control. He allowed just 16 walks this season in 56 1/3 innings, and for his major league career he walked 25 in 101 innings, one every four innings.
Herrmann does give up a ton of hits, however. While his...
Grady Sizemore is still in what are considered to be his prime years, and there is the very real possibility that the team that signs him (don't count on it being the Indians) will get a steal. But what of that great, gaping hole in the Indians' outfield?
With Derek Lowe joining the Indians starting rotation, it's going to be open season on ground balls. Here's hoping the infielders catch them.
CBS Sports says the Sox are looking at Grady Sizemore.For years, Sizemore was the Next Big Thing, but he has had numerous injuries over the last three years.His 2011 season, though, showed some of the old promise.
According to an article by Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post, the Colorado Rockies have expressed interested in free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore.
ESPN's Jim Bowden predicted Sizemore would receive a one-year, $5 million contract this winter.
In 2011, Sizemore hit .224/.285/.422 with 10 HR's and 32 RBI's in 268 AB's in another injury plagued season with the Indians...
The Indians have taken a small gamble that right-hander Derek Lowe, 38 years old and trying to rebound from a September swoon, can provide some stability and durability at the back end of the rotation in 2012.
In a post to Twitter, Jon Heyman of SI.com says free agent OF Grady Sizemore is looking for a one year deal this winter in an attempt to re-establish himself.
Having said that, Andy McCullough of the Star Ledger recently said the Mets are not likely to entertain Sizemore this winter and Jon Heyman of SI.com says the Mets will likely tender a contract to Angel Pagan next month.
Derek Lowe is the latest addition to ground ball central. He should fit in nicely. The Indians acquired Lowe from Atlanta on Oct. 31 for minor-league left-hander Chris Jones. With young starters Julio Teheran, Randall Delgado, Mike Minor and...
