Never Fall in Love with a Reliever

In similar reasoning to why Mama’s shouldn’t let their babies grow up to be Cowboys, baseball fans should never fall in love with relievers. They are all a little wacky and they will either leave you or disappointment in the end. While it may be tempting when they are playing well, it’s always a trap, so don’t get emotionally or financially attached. This advice goes to both...

The All-Star break was not quite over when the Indians received devastating news: Lefty Nick Hagadone will be done for the season after breaking a bone in his elbow in a rehab appearance with Mahoning Valley on Wednesday (7/15).

Indians won't trade Aviles due to daughter's leukemia battle

The Cleveland Indians aren’t out of the playoff race quite yet, but there’s one player who definitely isn’t for sale ahead of the Major League Baseball trade deadline. At 45-48, the Indians certainly aren’t a lock for the postseason. However, the club is 4 1/2 games out of an American League wild card spot and could have a fighting chance with a few good moves. But even...

Nick Swisher Makes Rehab Appearance with Lake County Captains

During his recent rehab stint with the Lake County Captains, Nick Swisher said that, more than anything, he enjoyed being part of a team again. “Even if it’s not my team, it’s still part of a team,” Swisher said Monday night after his first appearance with the Captains. “When you’re banged up and going through this rehab process, you don’t really feel like part of anything...

Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw Back to Dominating Late Innings

Of all the fears, worries and unknowns the Cleveland Indians had in spring training and the start of this baseball season, the back end of the bullpen was not one of them. Setup man Bryan Shaw and closer Cody Allen had made for a pretty formidable one-two punch at the end of ball games in 2013 and 2014 and there was little reason to expect anything different of the Tribe’s ace...

Indians' Anderson not focused on history

Cody Anderson insists he's not concerned with personal statistics or a historic run to begin his career. Instead, he'll focus Wednesday on trying to help the visiting Cleveland Indians end their lengthy slide against the surging Milwaukee Brewers.

Could Indians be looking to trade Jose Ramirez?

The Cleveland Indians are in an odd situation when it comes to the upcoming trade deadline. Yes, they’re a disappointing team sitting at 44-47. They remain only 5.5 games out of a wild card spot. Are they a buyer or a seller? Regardless of arbitrary titles, there is some hope with the development of rookies Giovanny Urshela and Francisco Lindor on the left side of the infield....

Indians GM Chris Antonetti not interested in trading starting pitchers

If the Cleveland Indians are going to be sellers this year, it doesn't look like they'll be trading off any of their talented, young starting pitchers. With the Indians sitting 11 games behind the first-place Royals in the AL Central (5 1/2 games out of a Wild Card spot), it seems as if Cleveland would be best-suited to sell off some pieces before this year's non-waiver trade deadline...

Indians could move Brandon Moss by trade deadline

Roughly one week ago, Cleveland Indians president Mark Shapiro discussed the addition of outfielder Brandon Moss, saying that the veteran slugger has been “as productive as hoped” who is “better than we thought defensively.” Fast forward to today, and we have ourselves a bit of a contradictory report, stating that the Tribe would love to move Moss if they can find a suitor...

Next two weeks critical for the Cleveland Indians

As the first half of the 2015 Major League Baseball season came to a close, the standings showed an incredible amount of parity throughout the league. In the American League, every team was within eight games of a wild card spot, with all but two clubs being within six games.
