Lack of Production Led to the End of Overpaid Veterans

Remember when Michael Bourn worked with an olympic trainer this winter? Remember when Nick Swisher was going to be a brand new player after having double knee surgery? Remember when Brandon Moss was going to the big power bat the Indians had been looking for since Travis Hafner was in his prime? Whatever happened to those guys? Oh right, reality set in. In the winter after the 2012...

Not all Indians in clubhouse sad to see Nick Swisher go

Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn were traded last week, and now their departures — especially that of Swisher — have inspired some looks back at their time in Cleveland. Both had been productive MLB players elsewhere and came to Cleveland as big money, 30-plus year-old free agents; both struggled to maintain that productivity and showed their age more than Tribe brass hoped...

Bourn consistently producing big hits, are stolen bases soon to follow?

CLEVELAND -- Michael Bourn is hitting .305 in May and has hits in 12 of his past 13 games. Even though he is hitting well, the one area of Bourn's game that still hasn't regained its form is stealing bases. Going into Saturday's game against Colorado, Bourn has just four stolen bases, which is his lowest total in his first two months. The previous low was seven in 2007. At this point...

Bourn Identity: What’s going on with the Indians center fielder?

A massive debate broke out on Twitter at the end of Friday’s disheartening 3-2 Indians defeat. This time around, it wasn’t actually about attendance. No, it was about Michael Bourn and his eventually failed bunt attempt. After red-hot Lonnie Chisenhall started the bottom of the ninth against the Blue Jays with a double, Bourn attempted to bunt twice and failed each time. On the...

How crazy would it be for Indians to consider trading Michael Bourn?

The Indians shocked much of baseball by signing All-Star outfielder Michael Bourn in February to a deal worth up to $60 million over five years. While the team then surprised en route to 92 wins and an AL Wild Card appearance, Bourn disappointed. After a four-year near-superstar average of 4.8 jWAR (definition here), he posted a measly 2.2 jWAR in 2013 – just barely above legitimate...
