Found April 23, 2012 on Cleveland Frowns:
A few weeks back we wrote about the contest they’re having over at Uni Watch to re-name and re-brand the Cleveland Indians. The first batch of results was posted on Saturday and while one of the concepts is genuinely horrifying, folks have come up with some interesting ideas. Relatedly, some good work by Frowns regulars (including Kanicki and NeedsFoodBadly) and some other folks in addressing some profoundly warped views on Chief Wahoo and the Indians name at a Waiting for Next Year post on the subject here. Also, a Frownie Challenge: Whoever comes up with the best idea for a penalty for a proposed civil statute banning any mention of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish logo (a drawing of a leprechaun made by Irish people) in any purportedly serious discussion about the merits of maintaining Chief Wahoo (a racial caricature of Native Americans made by white people) gets two rounds on us at Thursday’s draft party. Free speech has its limits, of course. You can’t yell “fire!” in a crowded ...

Up is Down. Left is Right. Jack Hannahan is…Good?

It’s easy to forget that Jack Hannahan is still a Major League Baseball player—at least in part—because of Gavin Floyd. Because until Floyd broke Jason Donald’s left hand with a high-and-tight fastball on March 6 of last year, Donald was slated to be the Indians’ bridge to Lonnie Chisenhall.  The best laid plans of Mark and Chris… Of course, even after Donald’s injury...

Indians activate Huff, send him to Triple-A

The Cleveland Indians sent left-handed pitcher David Huff to Class AAA Columbus after activating him from the 15-day disabled list Sunday. Huff had been in Class AA Akron on a rehabilitation assignment. He was placed on the disabled list March 30 after sustaining a strained right hamstring. He made one start for Akron, throwing four innings and allowing one hit, one walk and striking...

Report: Derek Lowe’s World Series ring and trophy stolen

Cleveland Indians pitcher Derek Lowe was a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox team that won a World Series. Asking him to show you the ring might be a touchy subject today- “The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of a 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series ring and a gold World Series trophy from Major League Baseball pitcher Derek Lowe’s Fort Myers residence...

Kipnis With Four Hits, Tribe Keeps On Rollin’

When a team is locked in offensively, even when they go quiet for a few innings, you have an overwhelming feeling that they’re just waiting for an opening to burst things wide open. The Indians had 10 hits in the first seven innings of this one with only two runs to show for it. But, in the turning point that was the eighth inning, Jason Kipnis had the biggest hit of the game with...

How The Indians Should Handle the Addition of Johnny Damon

The Cleveland Indians are coming off of a recent 9-game road trip during which they went 7-2. It was an impressive trip and gives them the second best road record in baseball behind the Rangers. The Indians return home this week and Shelley Duncan remains the starter in left field. This may change soon enough though, as Johnny Damon is set to join the team in a matter of weeks....

Box Score: Indians 5, Athletics 1

The Tribe offense was getting plenty of hits, but for the second straight night, they specialized in leaving guys on base. That is, until the eighth inning. The Indians broke this game open in the top of the eighth with a two-run triple by Jason Kipnis and a wild pitch which allowed him to score. Kipnis had four hits and drove in three runs. Four other Indians (Hafner, Donald, Choo...

Kipnis drives in three runs, Indians win over A's

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Jason Kipnis drove in three runs and scored twice, Jeanmar Gomez pitched into the sixth inning for his first win of the season and the Cleveland Indians extended their best road trip in more than 20 years with a 5-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night. Jason Donald had two hits and also scored twice while Travis Hafner and Jack Hannahan added...

The Cleveland Indians are on a roll right now, but

They have been playing Seattle, Oakland, and Kansas City. Will they be able to play with the cream of the league: They still have to play Texas, New York, Tampa, and Detroit? The Angels who are coming up soon will be a major test. The Red Sox will not be down forever and the Orioles have gotten off to a good start. We like what we see so far with the Tribe. Time will tell.

UniWatch: Time For An Indians’ Name Change?

Yesterday, UniWatch had their first post of submissions for their new running contest. Their goal is to find the most creative idea for name changes for two of the more ridiculed Native American-based team names in all of sports: The Cleveland Indians and The Washington Redskins. With 35 entries in all for the Cleveland baseball team alone (the first half were revealed yesterday...

Royals-Indians Preview

A series against the Kansas City Royals provided just what the Cleveland Indians needed to break out of a slow start to this season and get some momentum going for a successful road trip. When they return home, the Indians will try again to add to the Royals' misery. Cleveland will seek its eighth win in 10 games Tuesday night by continuing its recent mastery of the Royals...
