OBP Leagues: In Need of Some Headley

Playing in an OBP league not only takes into account more of the players overall performance, it can also help you get a couple of steals on draft day. I took a look at third base and singled out a few players to target and one to pass over that others in your league may be sleeping on... Looking at the top-5 in OBP last year, we end up with Adrian Beltre (.388), Matt Carpenter...

Indians hope Santana's comfort at first leads to rebound at plate

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Last year one of the biggest topics of spring training was Carlos Santana moving to third base and backing up at catcher. This year Santana doesn't have to worry about being shuffled around as he knows he is at first. "This time last year he was really excited about trying to play third. He was really going after it," said Terry Francona. "This year is going to...

Santana thrives at first, which is where Indians should keep him

There are few times when you can say a pair of injuries were the best thing to happen to a team. In the Indians' case last season though, that ended up being the case. When Carlos Santana (concussion) and Nick Swisher (knee) went on the disabled list in late May, Lonnie Chisenhall entrenched himself at third base after a great start to the season. When he returned, Santana moved...

Curious Case of Carlos Santana

To say that Carlos Santana had a rollercoaster season would be putting it lightly. Coming into the 2014 season, Santana was without a position as Yan Gomes was designated as the team’s everyday catcher at the end of 2013, and Nick Swisher had been the incumbent first basemen. Unless Santana was willing to be the everyday designated hitter, manager Terry Francona was going to have...

The makeup of the 2019 Cleveland Indians lineup

It’s hard to predict the makeup of a major league roster in five years.  In sports, all it takes is one injury to end or derail a promising career.  Besides the obvious injury factor, you never know if a player is going to exceed or fall short of expectations and contract value. Who would’ve thought Michael Brantley would finish third in the MVP race this past season?  Corey...

Carlos Santana named AL Player of the Week

Carlos Santana was feeling it over the last week. So much that there was little question as to who would win the American League Player of the Week. Santana was in a class of his own over the past week. He was the star of an otherwise dull and disappointing road swing for the Indians. Santana put on a one-man hitting clinic. Santana left little doubt in the Player of the Week conversation...

Santana Showing Signs of Heating Up

Maybe, just maybe, the bat of Cleveland Indians man-without-a-position Carlos Santana is finally heating up. It is tough to guess the exact culprit for the struggles of the once-reliable slugger at the plate this season, but since his return from the seven-day concussion disabled list at the beginning of June, his bat has been a bit livelier. Given his numbers over the first two...

Santana hasn't played more than a handful of games at the hot corner since 2006, when he was in the Dodgers' minor-league system, but he has committed himself to re-learning the position during winter ball in the Dominican Republic.
