Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber proves once again that he is not human

Remember when everyone worried about 2014 Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber getting off to a rough start? Yea, neither do we. The Indians starter was dominant once again on Thursday night, giving up only three runs and racking up 13 strikeouts against the Mariners. For those keeping score at home, that's 50 strikeouts in his last four starts. Kluber currently leads MLB in K's with 96.

How to Score More; Clutch Hits or Walks?

It has been a matter of debate among Indians fans, particularly those writers who speak on the Tribe Time Now network of podcasts, why the Indians had trouble scoring runs early in the season. On one side, they weren’t getting hits with runners in scoring position. On the other, they weren’t getting many runners in scoring position. This is a solid old school versus new school...

5/23 Recap: Jason Kipnis Supports Corey Kluber, Even If No One Else Will

Player of the Game It shows how incredible Corey Kluber has been that he has jaded us into thinking that an eight inning, one run start is subpar, but compared to his last two, this one was a little lackluster. Kluber allowed nine hits and struck out just seven, but was able to work threw some tough situations with clutch K’s, a fortuitous double play and a runner caught stealing...
