Indians pile on for sweep, now 6-0 vs. Tigers

The Tigers have been an annual thorn in Cleveland's side during Indians manager Terry Francona's time at the helm. With a 9-4 victory over Detroit on Thursday night, the Tribe continued to flip the script in a rivalry that had been fairly one-sided in recent years.

Indians’ dominance over Tigers reveals 5th starter issues

With the first month of the season complete, the Cleveland Indians are off to a mildly disappointing .500 start that has them in fourth place in a strong AL Central. They have 12 wins this season. Of those 12 wins, five have come against the Tigers – Cleveland is 5-0 against Detroit this season. That’s rather puzzling since the Tigers are 14-12 overall, meaning about half of...

Cleveland Indians catcher Roberto Perez will undergo surgery

Not unexpected, but still disappointing... Cleveland Indians backup catcher Roberto Perez will undergo surgery on Friday to repair damage to his broken right thumb. Perez suffered the injury during Saturday night's game in Philadelphia while diving to (successfully) make a tag at the plate. There is not currently a timetable for Perez's return, but it's possible he won't need an...

How has Tribe fared with Santana leading off?

Carlos Santana is getting comfortable seeing his name in the top slot of the Indians' lineup. More important to the designated hitter, however, is Cleveland's record with him serving as the leadoff man.

The Case for Francisco Lindor as Baseball’s Best Shortstop

The case has been made for Carlos Correa. It was even made on this very site last year. He was the number one overall draft pick. He was last year’s American League Rookie of the Year. He’s been called Alex Rodriguez, with better makeup. He’s even been called the best player in the major leagues (maybe). When we ran our preseason staff predictions a couple months back, 11 of...

A Recent History of One Run Affairs

In a complete reversal of the past few seasons, the Indians must have been so excited to see the Tigers come to town on May 3rd. In their previous three game series in late April, the Indians swept Detroit with a run differential of 18 to 5. After the first 2-1 win, the Indians scored four runs for each one by the Tigers in the final two games. After that, things changed. Each of...

Ball Played: Corey Kluber gets a shout out for the shutout

Some teams just become the annoying splinter under the fingernail that cannot be dislodged. The Detroit Tigers have been that exasperating irritation for the Terry Francona led Cleveland Indians. Great things might have been had in 2013 if not for a 4-15 record versus those Tigers, which left the Tribe one game back in the standings.1 The Indians had since combined to go 15-22 in...

Cleveland Indians fan creates selfie-ception with jumbotron

We’ve all tried it at least once: going to sporting events and trying to act as goofy and silly as possible in order to end up on the jumbotron. In the past, there was no way to immortalize these special moments in time when a normal person get their three seconds of (very localized) fame. However, thanks to the advent of the selfie, anything is possible! Spotted on @baseballreddit...

Tribe Time Now Weekend Update: No Love in Philly

Kevin Gall and Danny Madden ask a few questions about the Indians moving forward from the first month of the season. Has Cody Allen’s heavy workload over the past few years caused his struggles? Will the bullpen be a strength for the Indians moving forward? Can the Indians actually rely on Trevor Bauer in the starting rotation? Will Carlos Santana return to the leadoff spot? And...

Carlos Santana and Tyler Naquin are hitting, but Cleveland Indians are falling

Exercise your democratic rights. The Indians had an awful, awful, awful week, going just 1-5. Each of the five losses was by a single run, and if you're seeing the glass as half full, that means they were right in every game. If you're like me on the other hand, it just feels like a whole lot of wasted opportunities. Despite the frustrating results, I'll still try to sort out...

Indians minor league recap: Tyler Krieger goes 4-6 for Lake County in doubleheader sweep

Giovanny Urshela had a big night as well. Will he be helping the Indians again soon? Other than the Lynchburg Hillcats, the Cleveland Indians farm system had a pretty great day yesterday. Lynchburg's loss was more or less made up for by the Lake County Captains sweeping a doubleheader, and the Columbus Clippers look unbeatable right now with their 11th straight win in the books...

How The Tribe Can Survive Without Carrasco

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco is April's fool for the second year in a row. The pitcher is no stranger to dumb luck and injury troubles when spring rolls around. People may remember jumping at the sight of the young stud taking a line drive to the face last year, courtesy of Melky Cabrera. This time, the problem lies in his hamstring, which he injured...

Indians will certainly miss Carlos Carrasco for the next month

Just as the Indians got good news on the injury front with Michael Brantley returning to the team on Monday night, things got much, much worse. On an odd play Sunday, Carlos Carrasco was covering first base when his left leg collapsed under him. By some miracle of foot placement, Carrasco got the out at first, but he only took a couple more steps once standing up before falling right...
