Tom Hamilton calls walk off balk and it’s glorious

One of our favorite announcers in sports is Cleveland Indians radio play by play man Tom Hamilton.  Nobody in sports does a walk-off like the Indians announcer and his dueling calls with Hawk Harrelson on last swing Indians victories over the White Sox are a national treasure. So who else would you rather have at the mic for the unique scene of a walk off balk? The Indians won a...

Indians hope Wednesday'€™s win and sweep of Tigers helps put things back on track

CLEVELAND -- It has been an interesting week for Cleveland sports teams when it has come to hitting the jackpot when the odds were stacked heavily against them. On Tuesday, the Cavaliers had a 1.7 percent chance to win the draft lottery yet have the first pick for the third time in four years. When the Indians began their three-game series against the Tigers on Monday, giving the...

Indians Complete Sweep Over Tigers After Walk-Off Balk By Al Alburquerque

Pregame 1: Kansas City Royals at Detroit Tigers

(Read Kevin’s “Realism” first. It’s better, especially when you consider that he wrote it without looking, not even once. I am continually amazed by touch-typists. How do they do it? I’m all hunt and peck.) Here we go! The next “Play Ball!” and the 114th season of Detroit Tigers baseball will commence. The last 29 have gone by without a World Series championship, and...

Throwing Less of Al Alburquerque’s Very Best Pitch

For me, one of the most memorable pitches of the past few seasons is the fastball that Sergio Romo threw by Miguel Cabrera to clinch the 2012 World Series. On its own merits, Romo’s fastball isn’t particularly good, and for that reason, everybody watching figured Romo would throw a slider. For that reason, Romo threw […]

Arbitrary Arbiters

The reaching of contract agreements with 5 of 6 arbitration-eligible players is pretty big news, worthy of a post, I’d say. So here it is. All 6 are important pieces of the 2014 puzzle, and even if the agreements are no real surprise, given Dave Dombrowski’s track record with Detroit as far as arbitration goes, it’s still good news. The real surprise is that it’s not 6 of...
