Boxscore Breakdown #130: Mistakes by the lake – Indians 9, Angels 2

Great, now the Angels can’t even catch routine flyballs. On two separate occasions the Angels just up and dropped a flyball because they lost it in the sun. That is fitting because the Angels themselves are quite lost. They just can’t do anything right anymore. The outfield defense is one of the few undeniably strong parts of the club, yet they just couldn’t do simple things...

Two outfielders missed routine fly balls during the game, allowing the Indians to score a couple of runs early. The first came when Mike Trout missed a ball in center with one out and a runner on second. His miscue gave...

Video: Best of the Indians Week

The Cleveland Indians had quite the week. They went into New York and took three of four games from the always hated Yankees. In addition, they swept the Milwaukee Brewers at Progressive Field. Sure, they lost at Wrigley Field to the Chicago Cubs, but, for the week, a 5-2 record is still quite good especially considering how the 2015 season has gone thus far. Now, here at WFNY, we...

Video: Watch this Indians fan snag a screaming liner

The Cleveland Indians weren’t the only ones to go home winners on Tuesday night as a fan down the third-base line was right there with them. Watch as left-handed Abraham Almonte slaps a first-pitch fastball down the line, only to have the screaming liner absolutely speared by a glove-toting, bearded gentleman just beyond the edge of the tarp. One hell of a snag, right? Rick Manning...

Who wants to throw back a drink with the Chicago Cubs? If you do, the good news is that they just turned 21 and are now officially legal to drink! No, I have not been drinking.

Next Up: Indians fly from CLE to MSP

Since CLE is no longer a hub airport, getting from Point A to Point B on family trips often involves an intervening stop in Minneapolis. It couldn’t be simply a coincidence of my flight paths that I have noticed a surprisingly large number of baseball diamonds on the approaches to, and departures from, MSP. They must like baseball in the Twin Cities. They certainly like their Twins...
