Scott Kazmir Strikes Out Josh Hamilton

Previously, it was Oliver Perez. Earlier in his career, Oliver Perez was a good major-league pitcher. Then he was a worse major-league pitcher, then he was a bad major-league pitcher, then he was nothing, thought to be hopeless. Perez resurfaced in winter ball, allegedly reaching his old velocity levels as a reliever. The Mariners gave him a chance, and he worked his way into a big...

2013 X-Factor: Cleveland Indians

You know about all of Cleveland's free agent signings this winter. You know about Cleveland's young core that they're going to be building around for the long haul. But what about the other players on the team that might not be part of either of those groups, but will play a huge role on the team in 2013?

Dugout Digest - happy Indians day!

Day number two of AL Central week is upon us, and we'll be taking a look at one of the more maddening teams in the division today: the Cleveland Indians. Cleveland fell from 82 losses in 2011 to 94 in 2012, and are attempting to stave off another losing season this year. Bringing in guys like Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn, and Mark Reynolds will certainly help the offense, but...

The 2013 Tribe and jWAR

A few weeks ago when Jon wrote this article, talking about expectations for the Tribe in 2013 and how they may be a little too high, I immediately conveyed how I thought that article rained on my potential parade of writing about how this team with its flurry of additions in the offseason should be above .500. That led to the conversation that sparked this Jacob piece about our discussion...

Spring training is not about winning games and getting all too caught up in the numbers players put up.  It is about getting your pitchers ready and surviving the seven week camp without any major injuries.   Ask the Yankees...
