NicK Swing & Misser

The pride of Ohio State and President of BrOhio, Nick Swisher has finally had a hot streak to make his bros proud, raising his average from a season low of .192 on June 30th to .215 on July 22. Even more impressively, raising his terrible slugging percent of .316 to .353 over that same span. As often happens, that increase in power and hit rate has lead to an increase in production...

We’ve got some more of these in the hopper and we’ll try to keep...

Kipnis and Swisher break out for Tribe

If Friday’s win in Detroit was any sign of things to come for the Indians in the second-half, then buckle your seatbelts for a wild ride. Fresh off of a nice All-Star break of rest and relaxation for all Indians minus Michael Brantley, the Indians flashed their guns in game-one of the second-half in Detroit. The Tribe came rallying back from down 3-0 to topple the Tigers with...

Audio: Tom Hamilton calls Nick Swisher’s grand slam
