This Week In Tribe 5/5-10: Kipnis & Brantley Lead Tribe Into More Central Play

It’s funny how a single baseball game can make one’s perceptions change rather dramatically during a 162-game season. The Cleveland Indians were down 6-1 on May 3 to the Toronto Blue Jays and were on their way to losing three out of four in the series on the heels of another poor series against Kansas City when the Royals took two out of three.   It seemed, at that point...

4/25 Recap: Trevor Bauer Sick, Tribe Bats Hungover

Brantley finished the day seven for his last eight at bats. Brantley is hitting .419 since...

Brantley Looking to Take His Game and Tribe to Another Level

Michael Brantley makes it clear, he’s never consumed with individual statistics, he’s only consumed with improving his own game and helping the team win. If Brantley can improve upon last season, it will be quite a feat. In 2014, Brantley hit .327, with 20 home runs and 97 runs batted in. His .327/.385/.506 was a vast improvement from what had been his best season, 2013. Once...

Cleveland Indians: What ever happened to Matt LaPorta?

Matt LaPorta was once a top prospect in the Cleveland Indians organization with an extremely bright future. He reached the majors quickly after being acquired by the Tribe in 2008, but his Major League career was less than stellar. After parts of four disappointing seasons with the Indians, LaPorta’s baseball days now seem to be over. The Milwaukee Brewers selected LaPorta with...

Michael Brantley Breaks Out – WFNY’s Top 10 Cleveland Sports Stories of 2014: No. 9

It feels a bit odd to classify Michael Brantley’s 2014 season as a “story”. Stories have ups and downs. Stories have adversity and resilience. Stories aren’t boringly consistent and, excepting Herman Mehlville, they don’t last for six months. There are a few ways to explain to you how maddeningly consistent Brantley was in 2014. On April 8th, about a week into the season...

WATCH: Indians turn unconventional triple play

The Cleveland Indians turned one of the coolest and most unconventional triple plays you'll ever see in Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The triple play was so unique, it was challenged twice—first by the Indians, then by the Dodgers. At the end of the day, the Indians won the review, and the 7-2-4 triple play was officially in the books. Let's watch the magic...
