Indians' Kipnis has secret (smelly) weapon against catchers

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is a true competitor. And sometimes that means doing whatever it takes for him and his team to be successful -- even if it requires some extra effort from his bodily functions. What exactly do we mean by that? Well, let's just cut right to the cheese -- or chase. During a recent Twitter Q&A with fans, Kipnis admitted to getting a...

I Don’t Know. Third Base!

The famous Abott and Costello skit ‘Who’s On First’ goes something along the lines of “Who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know, third base” While in the skit these happen to be the players actual names, this could turn out to be a real life scenario for the Cleveland Indians in the not-so-distant future. “Who’s On First?” Okay, so this one has to be the...

Indians Would Benefit Greatly From a Return to All-Star Form For Kipnis

In 2013 Jason Kipnis was an American League All Star second baseman who played an important role in helping the Indians to that season’s Wild Card game. In 2014 Kipnis had his worst big league campaign and the Tribe offense stalled at times with one of its key players scuffling. Needless to say, the Tribe could really use the Kipnis who made his Major League debut in 2011 and was...
