Indians Baseball Insider:
Boston Red Sox
The good news?
It’s only been eight games. Nothing is decided in eight games.
The bad news?
Those eight games have raised more questions than they’ve answered about the Indians’2013 pitching staff. The Indians are tied with the mighty Houston Astros for the most runs given up in the American League. The team has surrendered 48 runs in eight games, good for 6.0 per game. You don’t win very often when you give up six runs a game.
I want to focus on two starters in particular, Ubaldo Jimenez and Brett Myers.
Plenty of questions surrounded Jimenez and Myers entering the year. It wasn’t surprising to see Jimenez follow a great start with one that was essentially a microcosm of his 2012 campaign. The more surprising item has been Brett Myers futility. I wasn’t down on Myers following his tough spring as his track record in the majors had me convinced that he would be able to eat innings and provide decent numbers in the middle of the rotation. After watching him serve up seven home runs i...

LOUISVILLE, KY – The Columbus Clippers used five pitchers to secure a 5-0 shutout win over the Louisville Bats on Wednesday night. The victory gave the Clippers the series win, 2-1.
The headline before the game was that Clippers starting pitcher to be, Corey Kluber, was recalled back up to the majors. Kluber was set to start on the mound for the Clippers on Wednesday night, but...
I am not one to panic. Especially with 150-plus games left on the schedule. The hot starts for the Tribe the last two years resulted in nothing. But obviously you would like to see the lesser parts of your team do well early to give them confidence as the season starts to build.
It was no secret that the weak link of the 2013 Cleveland Indians would be their starting rotation. All...

Its kind of hard not to know who he is since he has taken the organization by storm since he was drafted in June of 2011. In almost two years time, Lindor has established himself as the heir apparent at shortstop for the Indians and one...

Not Exactly How I Planned To Start The Season
At 6:30 when I was on my way to Progressive Field for my first live Indians game of the season, I couldn’t be more excited. By 9:30 that night, however, when the Yankees were beating my beloved Tribe 14-1 and “Let’s go Yankees!” chants from the New York fans in attendance was nauseatingly audible above the normal chatter of the...
I can’t help but shake my head while sitting here during the opening home series here at Progressive Field.
The Cleveland Indians are 3-5 and two games out of first on April 10th, and to listen to the general populace that surround the Indians, you would think that the season ended yesterday after another 100-loss season.
Sure, things could be better. The pitching staff looks like...
