Defensive mistakes cost Cleveland Indians a win. Again

Not having an offense did not help either, but I'm going to blame defense for this one. Indians 1, Nationals 4 Box Score Indians fall to 57-42 -- I doubt Jason Kipnis knew he basically cost his team the game when a routine double play ball clunked off of his glove in the second inning, but with a lethargic Cleveland Indians offense taking the field against a dominant Stephen...

Jason Kipnis has found more power than he ever had before

Kipnis is a different kind of good hitter than he has been in the past. Jason Kipnis was one of the best second basemen in MLB last year, as he hit .303/.372/.451 and played solid defense. His batting average and walk rate are each down a little this year, but he's largely made up for that by hitting with far more power than in any other season during his career. Kipnis' slugging...

Jason Kipnis is inexplicably amazing every May and June

Jason Kipnis goes on a run every May and June. It doesn't make any sense to do this like clockwork. As the Cleveland Indians have ripped off fourteen wins in a row to solidify a seven game lead in the division and have all of the Cuyahoga Valley falling all over itself to scream about the Tribe from the rooftops (I assume anyway), in the middle of it all has been Jason Kipnis having...

Brandon Crawford, Jason Kipnis and the Flip Side of the Coin

Like any baseball stat, Wins Above Replacement provides the answer to a question. The question, in this case? Something like this: accounting for all the main ways (hitting, running, defense, etc.) in which a player can produce value for his team, how many wins has this particular player been worth? There are, of course, criticisms of WAR. Some valid, others less so. One prominent...

Watch: Jason Kipnis shoulder checks ketchup hot dog mascot

At many Major League Baseball stadiums, one of the promotions is a mascot race around the warning track. In Washington D.C, Presidents race for glory. In Pittsburgh, The Pirates Pierogies sprint for the crown. In Cleveland, it’s a bunch of hot dogs with condiments on them. Well, that’s how Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis shoulder checked a hot dog with ketchup on it. Ketchup...

Hold The Ketchup? Jason Kipnis Flattens Enormous Hot Dog Race Ketchup Bottle

Maybe Jason Kipnis is more of a mustard and relish kind of guy. The Cleveland Indians infielder had himself a night Wednesday against the Texas Rangers, not only hitting a home run but also taking out an oversized bottle of ketchup. During the nightly hot dog race at Progressive Field, Kipnis and the bottle of ketchup crossed paths, and the professional athlete unsurprisingly came...
