Corey Kluber and the Uncertainty of Everything

At the trade deadline in 2010, the Padres found themselves in an unexpected position: first place in the National League West, 60-42, 1.5 games up on the Giants and at least seven games up on the rest of the division. Take away the powerhouse AL East and the Padres had the best record in baseball, and it wasn’t all smoke and mirrors. San Diego’s plus-90 run differential was best...

The Numbers Game: Finding the Next Corey Kluber (Part Two)

The day of reckoning is upon us. You could even say that today is judgment day. The pitching machine known as the Klubot didn't feel pity, or remorse, or even elbow pain en route to 269 hitter terminations via the strikeout last season and earning the '14 Cy Young Award to take into the future. But the question remains, "Why was Terminator Salvation even made?" Wait a second, wrong...

Corey Kluber Foremost Among Pitcher Extension Candidates

Contract extensions for younger players have been on the rise in recent years. Over the past three springs, 38 players with under six years of service have signed extensions buying out free agent years. Twenty-four of those 38 contract extensions were signed by players who had yet to reach arbitration. Eight contract extensions have gone […]

Following Cy Young season, Kluber more driven during spring training

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Two hours after throwing his first live batting practice session of spring training on Sunday, Corey Kluber was pulling a sled outside the weight room. If anyone had any notions that the Indians reigning American League Cy Young Award winner would ease his way into preparations for the upcoming season, Kluber might be even more intense. "He is relaxed and zoned...

Indians' Kluber rises quickly to become star AL pitcher

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Corey Kluber was suddenly on a roster of baseball immortality. It was all so surreal, almost overwhelming. In New York last month to receive his 2014 Cy Young Award, Kluber sat at a dais alongside Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays, Frank Robinson and Cal Ripken - heavy-hitting Hall of Famers all. And when John Smoltz, soon to be enshrined in Cooperstown, introduced...

Charting Expectations for the Indians by Kluber’s Enthusiasm

The genesis for this article was actually spawned from one of my alltime favorite WFNY running articles (Anderson Varejao Enthusiasm Charts from Denny Mayo). He has graciously allowed me to completely mangle it by extending the concept to the Indians and the player who wears his emotions as outwardly as anyone ever has. If you want to skip down to the fun, then just scroll down until...

I will never complain about a Corey Kluber extension

This is me talking to myself. I have to talk to myself sometimes when it comes to sports because otherwise you forget about foresight and only look at hindsight and then you hate yourself for being so stupid and not being able to see the future. That’s why I treat myself so harshly with regard to Nick Swisher. I wanted the Indians to sign Swisher badly because he seemed like the...

Corey Kluber looks very excited in bobblehead form

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber is never shy with showing his emotions. Here he's excited in the dugout. Then he shows off some pure joy in his warmup jacket. And this one looks like it came right after a strikeout. When talking about receiving his Cy Young award, he did crack a smile (there is photographic evidence). But the bobblehead version of "Cy Kluber" captures...

Cleveland Indians rumors: Offseason News

The Cleveland Indians may have digressed a tad in the win department from 92 wins in 2013 to 85 wins in 2014, but there still should be a lot of optimism for the 2015 season. The starting rotation boasts the reigning AL CY Young winner in Corey Kluber, along with a young supporting staff that was able to record the 2nd best ERA in the AL in the second half of the year.  Did I say...
