Today in Tribe History: March 25, 1997

In a trade reflecting current baseball economics, the Atlanta Braves send right fielder David Justice and center fielder Marquis Grissom to the Cleveland Indians for center fielder Kenny Lofton and relief pitcher Alan Embree.

Nick Swisher and Kenny Lofton are both right in MLB playoff debate

The good news is that the Cleveland Indians are coming off a season in which they made the playoffs! The bad news is that one of the most popular Indians of the past 20 years not only looked to invalidate that in the press this off-season, but might have alienated himself from these new Cleveland Indians in the process. Anthony Castrovince uncovered the tale of playoffs, current...

Report: Nick Swisher confronted Kenny Lofton over comments

The Cleveland Indians technically made the MLB playoffs in 2013, though they only got the chance to play one postseason game. The Indians were one of the two Wild Card teams the MLB’s new format supports, and they wound up losing to the Tampa Bay Rays. Because they were one-and-done, Cleveland legend Kenny Lofton does […]

About Kenny Lofton’s prolonged “Get off my lawn” moment

He may have been a part of one of the best outfield units to ever grace the grass at The Jake, but Tribe Hall of Fame speedster Kenny Lofton is not making many friends with the current crop of Wahoos. Lofton has long been a defender of his era, ensuring that Indians fans remember that, as good as times are today, they were way better back in his day. And, in a column filed by former...

Nick Swisher got in Kenny Lofton’s face at the Indians’ Fan Fest

If this was reported at the time I missed it, but Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com has an interesting story about a dustup between former Indians great Kenny Lofton and current Indians leader Nick Swisher back in January. The upshot: following Lofton’s comments that the 2013 Indians weren’t truly a playoff team because the Wild Card game didn’t really count in his mind, several...

Former Indians Great Kenny Lofton To Be Left Off The Hall Of Fame Ballot

One of the most respected Cleveland Indians of all time, Kenny Lofton has gotten the shaft in the Hall Of Fame Ballot voting. Lofton who is arguably one of the best lead-off batters and center-fielder of all time didn’t receive enough votes to be included in next years hall of fame voting. What is wrong with this picture? Lofton had 2,428 hits for a lifetime .299 average in his...

“Crushed” Kenny Lofton speaks out against steroids, Hall of Fame voting

With me being off the ballot, what I accomplished during the steroid era meant nothing. You look at the people who voted for the Hall of Fame. I think there might have been 600. They still voted for people who were cheating the game. It boggles my mind that the people you know cheated, who admitted they cheated, are still on the Hall of Fame ballot. That is sad. It’s really sad...
