Cleveland Indians’ rookies dress in costume for flight to Minnesota

A harmless little hazing tradition continued on the Indians’ flight to Minnesota to face the Twins in the final series of the regular season. Several of the Indians’ rookies had to dress in costume for the plane ride. As is custom, Tribe rooks had to dress up for the flight last night … and hilarity ensued. http://t.co/TdZrXd7QmA pic.twitter.com/tOfXyMsn3f — Cleveland Indians...

Chris Perez: “I don’t want to cost us games”

With the help of Joe Smith, the Indians barely held on for a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. But for the second straight appearance, the former All...

Jason Giambi Breaks Own Record for Oldest Player in MLB History to Hit Walk-Off Home Run (Video)

The Cleveland Indians have 11 walk-off wins this season. In terms of drama, Tuesday’s 5-4 walk-off victory over the White Sox is head and shoulders above the rest. Jason Giambi — yes, that Jason Giambi — drilled a pinch-hit two-run homer off White Sox reliever Addison Reed with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Giambi, at 42 years young, broke his own record for the...

A one and done playoff, the Indians have been here before

In 2012, MLB implemented a one game playoff between the first and second wild card teams to see who would compete in the playoffs.  Right now as we prepare for this year's wild card one-and-done games, it's interesting to note that the Indians are not foreigners to this experience (while most of us may not remember). There was a near miss in 1908 when the Indians finished...

A tale of two moments at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario

It was a tale of two cities here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario on a cool and crisp Tuesday night, or should I say, a tale of two players.

Indians 6 Twins 5: Wahoos win again, but closer problem rears its ugly head

This night was shaping up so nicely. It should have been an easy win where the Cleveland Indians breezed to the finish line and worried about the next game and the next game only. Instead, we wake up with a closer controversy. Actually, I wouldn’t even call it a controversy. Problem is the better word for it. There are only three games left in this magical 2013 season and it looks...

Indians 7, White Sox 2: On Believing, Not Stopping

7:07 PM – Last night I joked on Twitter that while I’ve been pining for meaningful September baseball for five solid years, I wasn’t sure I was ready for baseball quite that meaningful.
