Player of the Game: Jake Peavy (7 innings 5 hits 1 ER 0 BB / 11 SO) The Leadoff The Tribe bats were iced by a great pitching performance by White Sox right hander Jake Peavy on Sunday, as the Wahoo’s fell to Chicago 3-1. In the loss, Cleveland wasted a solid pitching performance by Brett Myers, who rebounded off his first two outings giving up just two earned runs on six hits through six innings of work. The Bottom 9 Inconsistent offense. We all knew the kind of roller coaster ride the Tribe pitching staff would be at the outset of the season, but what I didn’t know was that the offense would also have their ups and downs. Although the team won in dramatic fashion on Friday, the offense would muster up just one run in the ballgame. Saturday was completely different, as Cleveland exploded for nine runs against Chris Sale. And then on Sunday afternoon, the bats go back on ice and the team scores just one run again. Its early Indians fans, consistency will come as the season progresse...

Notes from the Wigwam: An up-and-down week

Two full baseball weeks are now complete, and the Cleveland Indians' record sits at 5-6, which is third in the American League Central. Considering how the past week started, third place looks pretty nice at the moment. To be honest, this past week probably could not have started any worse for the Tribe. Everyone was jazzed up for the team’s home opener last Monday against...

Terry Francona Seems to Have Work Cut Out for Himself in Cleveland (Video)

Terry Francona will always have a special place in the hearts of Red Sox fans, but it won’t necessarily be evident this week. With the Red Sox facing off against their former skipper during a three-game series in Cleveland, the Sox will have to put aside their affection for Tito and do what he taught them to: win. With John Farrell at the helm now, the new-look Boston squad is...

Adam Dunn’s Failed Experiment

Adam Dunn arrived in the Major Leagues in 2001. Since then, he has led the major leagues in both walks (1,172) and strikeouts (2,046) and is third in home runs (408), and his career stands as something of the perfect example of the Three True Outcomes. Of the 7,256 times he’s walked up to the plate, 3,702 of those PAs (51%) have ended without defensive involvement. Dunn has...

Turning the Masty Corner?

I am sort of obsessed with Justin Masterson. Every year, whether he has a difficult April (like last year) or a fabulous one (like 2011) I find myself poring over his stat line to see if anything remarkable has changed.  More often than not, I end up concluding the same thing each year: he’s a good pitcher who—as most non-strikeout pitchers do—relies heavily on the random...

April 15: Toronto 4, White Sox 3

After ending their losing streak on Sunday afternoon, the White Sox weren't able to get a winning streak started on Monday, as Mark Buehlre and the Toronto Blue Jays were just a bit too much for the pale hose.
