Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 41 – Carlos Santana

Join Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down to Opening Day! Countdown to Opening Day – 41 A career year could not have come at a better time for Carlos Santana, as his watchful eye at the plate and potent power in his bat helped to provide plenty of offense for the Cleveland Indians on their run to the seventh game of the World Series. It also made what already appeared...

Hosmer talking extension, but prepared for breakup of Royals' core

SURPRISE, Az. -- He wants to stay. All of the Royals' potential free agents want to stay. But as first baseman Eric Hosmer puts it, "I realize what hand Dayton was dealt."Which isn't to say that "Dayton" -- Royals general manager Dayton Moore -- is conceding that he will lose Hosmer, the most coveted of the four Royals players entering their walk years.Hosmer said Sunday that he...

Carlos Santana preparing to play in the outfield more this season

“If Tito needs me for the outfield or to play first base, I’m ready. I want to help my team wherever I can.” For as good as Carlos Santana’s bat has been since he broke out with 27 home runs in 2011, his glove has been, well, let’s call it not as good. It has been difficult for Terry Francona to find a place to keep him defensively, but so far jumping through the hoops...

Edwin Encarnacion, Carlos Santana could form best Indians first baseman in a long, long time

Edwin Encarnacion and Carlos Santana are each great on their own. Combine them and they become something else entirely. The Cleveland Indians haven’t had much in the way of good offensive production out of first base the last several years. Even going back to Ryan Garko with that mid-2000’s team, it was never more than alright. Last year they got 34 home runs from Mike Napoli...

Cubs-Indians World Series game 3 lineups: Santana in left field

The Argument for Carlos Santana, Starting Left Fielder

In 2014, the Cleveland Indians conducted a little experiment. Lonnie Chisenhall was still struggling as a third baseman, both offensively and defensively, and the club had had enough of Santana’s miscues behind the plate. In an attempt to maximize both the amount of offense in their lineup and Santana’s versatility, they began working him out at the hot corner in spring training...

Francona: Santana could play LF when World Series shifts to Chicago

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona is widely regarded as one of the best tactical skippers in baseball. With the World Series set to kick off on Tuesday night at Progressive Field, Francona is already thinking up creative ways to get his best bats into the lineup for the remainder of the series. Ahead of Game 1 against the Chicago Cubs, Francona said that he could play designated...

Listen to Tom Hamilton call Carlos Santana’s “prodigious grand slam!”

The fireworks guy had no trouble doing his job this time. The Indians won 12-1 on Friday night against Chris Sale and the White Sox. They scored six of those runs in one inning, capped off by a monster grand slam by Carlos Santana. Thankfully Tom Hamilton was there to make the call as he always is. He referred to it as “prodigious,” which was pretty cool even if it’s also kind...

On sluggers, arbitrary milestones, and Carlos Santana

When the Cleveland Indians were at their peak from 1995-2001, they had the biggest, baddest offense in the league. It was a glorious time to love the sport of baseball in Northeast Ohio. During that seven-year stretch — the height of MLB’s steroid era — the Tribe ranked top-two in baseball in total runs, doubles, home runs, batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging...

Should The Indians Trade Carlos Santana?

Make no bones about it, Carlos Santana‘s season has been the most disappointing of any Indians player this season. While much improved over the last few games, Santana’ batting line is a disappointing .221/.352/.381 with 10 home runs through 82 games played. If the season ended today, his 112 wRC+ rating would by far be the lowest of his career. Much of Santana’s struggles...
