Top 10 shortstops in baseball for 2017

There is no more exciting and rapidly developing position in the game today than shortstop. It has become a new beast over the past few years across MLB. By all indications, it's a wave that is just getting underway. In each of the past two seasons, a Rookie of the Year selection has been a shortstop, and in last year’s All-Star Game, of the six shortstops selected, each made his...

Feeling the (g)love: Indians shortstop Lindor in high demand

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Just this week, Francisco Lindor has given a hitting lesson on national television, modeled for commercial shoots and magazine cover, even worn a uniform outfitted with electrical sensors as the subject of a sports science experiment. No player has been more in demand at Cleveland's camp. No surprise there. Only 23, Lindor has become a star among stars,...

Gold Glove Shortstop Francisco Lindor Talks Offseason Training, Style and the Cheat Meal He Can't Give Up

In just two seasons, Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor has morphed from a highly rated prospect, whom scouts thought would need years to hone his offense, to an absolute terror both at the plate and in the field. Lindor earned the first Gold Glove for an Indians player since 2008 (Grady Sizemore) for his work during the 2016 season, when he posted a fielding percentage...

What might a contract extension between the Indians and Francisco Lindor look like?

I want the Indians to extend Francisco Lindor. You (probably) want the Indians to extend Francisco Lindor. What kind of numbers might it take to extend Francisco Lindor? The Indians are already on track to arrive at Opening Day next season with the highest payroll in franchise history (though if you account for inflation, the 2001 payroll will remain on top), at something in...

Francisco Lindor’s ALCS success has been fueled by a lucky penny from a little girl

With apologies to Andrew Miller, Francisco Lindor has been the best player in the ALCS so far. Cleveland’s all-star shortstop is 4-for-8 with a home run and has driven in three of the his team’s four runs, including the deciding run in both of the series’ first two games. You might think that the secret to Lindor’s success is his smooth swing or freakish athleticism, but...

Corey Kluber and Marco Estrada did their damnedest to make sure their opponents remained off the scoreboard Friday night in Game 1 of the ALCS. The Cleveland Indians’ ace was just one pitch better. Toronto Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada surrendered a two-run home run to Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor to break a scoreless tie in the sixth inning of Game 1. It proved to be the...

WATCH: Francisco Lindor hits walk-off single, awesomely reacts to foul ball

Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor hit a walk-off single to cap off a three-run ninth inning for the Tribe, in a 7-6 victory over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night at Progressive Field: What’s funny is that when this walk-off single happened, I was actually in the middle of working on a post about Lindor, due to a hilarious moment that happened earlier in the...

The Francisco Lindor Effect Is Ridiculous

The Indians have won 10 games in a row! That’s really good, and it’s allowed them to storm out in front in the American League Central. Sure, things can change in a hurry — 10 games ago, the Indians and the Royals were tied. But there’s no sense in just dismissing whole hot streaks, and the Indians now have one of the better records in baseball. For a few years, they’ve...
