Sunday Notes: Funky Lefties Holiday Edition

Bruce Chen retired on Monday, which makes this a good time to talk about Michael Roth. Chen closed out his career with the Indians, and Roth, a fellow southpaw, signed with Cleveland this past off-season. That’s not their only connection. A few days before Chen made his announcement, I suggested to the 25-year-old former Angel […]

A Healthy Jason Kipnis Means Healthy Production For Tribe

The Indians star is in early whispers for an A.L MVP award.  Jason Kipnis is on an absolute tear right now, amassing 18 hits in his last 10 games boosting his average above .341 and his OBP above .400. It is no coincidence that the Indians have won 7 of their last 9 games throughout that stretch, and are amidst one of the hottest teams in baseball. Kipnis began the season ice-cold...

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...

The resurgence of Corey Kluber

At the beginning of the 2015 MLB season, the hot topic in Cleveland was not the reigning Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. Instead, people were talking about how the Indians were going to be in the running for the Central division title. The offense in the preseason was supposed to have been better than anyone had seen in a while and the rotation was nothing short of greatness. This...

The Baseball Version of Indians SS Jose Ramirez is Quite Terrifying

After a horrific start to the season, the Cleveland Indians have won four of their last six games to get them to 17-23. Yes, they’re still dead last in the AL Central (nine games behind the first place Royals), but you have to start somewhere. Per Cut4, part of the Indians’ success may be due to some dark arts performed by pitcher Carlos Carrasco. As you can see below, Carrasco...

What’s Wrong With Our Bullpen?

Last season, the Indians bullpen was a source of strength and one of the best relief corps in all of baseball. This year the bullpen has been far from the shutdown crew that Indians fans expected. Last season the bullpen sported the league’s 7th best ERA at 3.12, while throwing the 5th most innings in the league with 513. Thus far this year the bullpen’s ERA is 3.45, which is...

Pair of Early Homers Pace Tribe to Series Win; Indians 5, White Sox 2

For the first time since the opening series of the season, the Indians won a series–taking three of four from the Chicago White Sox. Thursday evening the Tribe used a pair of first inning homers from Mike Aviles and Nick Swisher to mount a four-run inning. It was enough to take the Tribe to a 5-2 win in the Windy City. Danny Salazar fired six strong innings, allowing just five...

Cleveland Indians: Gomes to return Sunday

According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cleveland Indians’ manager Terry Francona says that Yan Gomes will catch on Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds in his return from the 15-day disabled list. Gomes was injured on April 11 against the Detroit Tigers in just the fifth game of the season. In the ninth inning of that affair, Tigers’ outfielder Rajai Davis slid...

Third Baseman Taylor Murphy Adapting to New Surroundings

If there’s one thing the Indians have an abundance of, it’s outfielders. Fans know it, big league players seem to have taken notice, and 22 year-old Taylor Murphy knew it. Murphy played in the outfield last year for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, and spent much of his collegiate career in the outfield, as well. He didn’t do poorly in the outfield, either. In 46 games last season...

Gomes, Close to Tribe Return, Will Be Welcome Addition

The Cleveland Indians took a major hit on April 11 when their starting catcher, Yan Gomes, took a big hit in a home plate collision against the Detroit Tigers. The play left Gomes with a sprained right MCL and left the Tribe scrambling to replace one of the more valuable players on the roster. In 2014, after breaking out in Cleveland the prior year, Gomes showed how key he is to...

Mets Card of the Week: 2002 Bruce Chen

2002 TOPPS BRUCE CHEN It is always bittersweet when a human time capsule like Bruce Chen retires. You look back at his first career start– a 21-year old lefty for the division-leading Braves facing a distant-second Mets squad in an essentially meaningless September game– and the names that float through the box score speak of a different era. Alfonzo, Olerud, Allensworth, Ordonez...

Jason Kipnis likes to lead off

On Monday (May 19th), Jason Kipnis 0/3 with a sacrifice bunt and officially ended one of the hottest streaks since Barry Bonds was destroying everyone in 2004. This night ended his streak of eight consecutive games where he reached base at least three times, a streak in which he had 20 hits (seven for extra bases), four walks and three time hit by pitch. While somehow he didn’t...
