The Cleveland Indians have high hopes for their young pitching staff

It is crazy to see how things can change in a year. Coming off his greatest season in the big leagues, Tribe ace Corey Kluber will have the attention of every opponent he faces this season. No longer will the 28 year-old be able to sneak up on teams, nor will he get to face some of the opposing team’s weaker players. The right-handed pitcher will have to be ready for every team’s...

Cleveland Indians 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

After two consecutive winning seasons, the Cleveland Indians will come into 2015 looking to make some noise in the American League.

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...
