Cleveland Indians fans, it might be safe to say at this point that you do have an every day player at superstar status. At least the baseball world seems to think that. Outfielder Michael Brantley was unable to break the teams long drought without a league MVP, as the last Tribe player to earn the honor was Al Rosen in 1953. However, he came a lot closer than anyone would’ve guessed...

Michael Brantley and Corey Kluber save Indians season: While We’re Waiting…

The Cleveland Indians have won 92 and 85 games the last two seasons. I don’t think I’ve seen enough recognizing them for that very difficult accomplishment. And I have no idea where the franchise would be today without the insane development of two stars. Entering this season, Michael Brantley was a mostly mediocre outfielder. I had been so annoyed by talk of him being better...

Brantley is carrying on the family legacy on the mound

Baseball bloodlines have become an integral part of the game. The Alomars, the Ripkens, the Molinas. The Niekro knuckleball danced its way through generations. Ken Griffey Jr. once played alongside his father, solidifying one of baseball’s greatest father-son moments.
