Looking Back: Tribe Rookies With Many Firsts in June

Few rookies to climb through the Cleveland Indians farm system in recent memory have been as intrinsically linked as Giovanny Urshela and Francisco Lindor. The pair, part of a June youth movement to repair the defensive deficiencies plaguing the roster and, in particular, the left side of the infield, were fairly known commodities in the field. Any contributions that they may have...

A Response to the AL Rookie of the Year Vote

After a long wait Monday night, the American League Rookie of the Year Award voting was announced and Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor found himself a close second but, ultimately, the runner-up of the yearly award selected by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. The news was obviously a disappointment to the Indians and fans of their organization, as well...

Indians Francisco Lindor not the 2015 AL Rookie of the Year?

Cleveland Indians starting shortstop Francisco Lindor finished behind Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa in the run to be the 2015 American League Rookie of the Year. Despite Correa and Minnesota Twins outfielder Miguel Sano also having fantastic seasons, Francisco Lindor was the deserving AL ROY Award recipient, as WahoosOnFirst’s Matt Bretz detailed earlier on Monday.

The Litany of Reasons Lindor is Rookie of the Year

This story was originally published on October 7th, 2015. If Francisco Lindor does not win the American League Rookie of the Year Award, don’t blame him. He did everything he could in the time he had. The competition has been highly contested and razor thin between the Astros’ Carlos Correa and Lindor for most of the second half of the season. The final vote, already made but...

The Tortoise, the Hare and the AL Rookie of the Year

In the classic story between the tortoise and hare, a hare saw a tortoise walking slowly with a heavy shell on his back. The hare was very proud of himself and he asked the tortoise. “Shall we have a race?” The tortoise agreed. As they started the running race, the hare ran very fast while the tortoise walked slowly. About mid-way through, the proud hair rested under a tree and...

Francisco Lindor on pregame rituals, his favorite player, and whether a hot dog is a sandwich

Lindor: Top 10 Plays of September

Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians is having quite the rookie season. He is already the best defensive shortstop in the American League, and Lindor’s offense has continually improved throughout the season as he is closing any arguments on who should win the AL Rookie of the Year Award. His best month has been September as Lindor nearly single-handedly (at times) kept the...

Francisco Lindor & The Greatest Indians Rookies Ever

All around baseball, the 2015 season will likely be remembered as the year of the rookie. Already 20 rookies across the league have been worth at least two wins above replacement and at least half these will be very disappointed when they don’t win the Rookie of the Year. While that will be a very interesting discussion, it should wait until the season is officially over. Instead...
