Fransisco Lindor and the Improbable Double

In a 162 game season, the trees can sometimes get lost through the forest. There are hits, diving stops, catches against the outfield wall and curve balls thrown against cleanup hitters that do not get remembered. The plays, although important,  make up the sum of the whole which is the longest regular season in sports. In 2015, there is a hit that stands out- one that was so exciting...

Is It Too Early to Discuss a Lindor Contract Extension?

Players with the skill set that Francisco Lindor possesses do not come along often, and especially for the long suffering fans in Cleveland. He was easily one of the shining stars in the dim sky that was the 2015 season for the Tribe. Given his strong play, flashy glove, impressive range, speed, consistency at the plate, and an unexpected amount of pop in his bat, it is almost impossible...

Lindor Ascends – WFNY Top 10 Cleveland Sports Stories: No. 4

Compared to the craziness of 2014, Cleveland Sports in 2015 came off as uneventful. The Indians failed to make the postseason — again. The Browns are perpetually a disaster on and off of the field. Nevertheless, as the year comes to a close, just as we have done the last seven years, WFNY will take a look at what we view to be the ten biggest sports stories to grace our local sports...

Is It Time To Extend Francisco Lindor?

Francisco Lindor could not have had a better beginning to his major league baseball career. There hasn’t been an Indians player with more hype surrounding him since the mid to late 90’s and Lindor did not disappoint. His tremendous performance through his first 99 big league games went far beyond what fans had expected at such an early point in his career. In just over a half...

Francisco Lindor is now one step away from the Majors. Following Monday's minor-league games, the Indians announced that the 20-year old, who is the organization's top prospect, has been promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus.

Tribe prospect Francisco Lindor pulled from game after taking a ball to the face

Tribe uber-prospect Francisco Lindor had to leave the Akron RubberDucks afternoon game on Wednesday after a bad hop from a sharply hit ball hit him in the face. Lindor laid face-down on the infield for several minutes while trainers attended to him. The ball seemed to hit the lip of the grass and shot upward as Lindor was moving towards second base to field it. He was wearing sunglasses...
