Carlos Santana never stopped being good

Despite poor results, the Indians slugger has been good all year. Now he’s doing the damn thing. Carlos Santana doesn’t seem to be having a great year. Whether by counting stats (12 home runs, 39 total extra-base hits) or by rate (102 wRC+), this is nothing but a disappointing campaign for him, especially since he’s chasing a big payday this winter. The guy blasted 34 dingers...

Where Else Bradley Zimmer Stands Out

We’ve known for some time that Bradley Zimmer is unusually tall. We’ve also known for some time that Zimmer can move, and more recently we’ve found out that he’s one of the fastest sprinters in the game. When Zimmer gets himself to full speed, he’s practically the same as Billy Hamilton, and while that doesn’t say anything about the time required to get to full speed...

Here’s Why the Indians Don’t Really Need a Starter

I don’t know if the Cubs are actually coming out of their funk, but it sure looks like they are. It feels like a matter of days before they re-claim first place in the NL Central, which is the outcome we’ve all long expected. There’s still work to do yet, but as the Cubs improve, it sends more eyes over to the Indians. The Indians have been in a funk of their own, and while...
