Today in Tribe History: July 28, 2000

The Indians obtain pitchers Bob Wickman, Steve Woodard, and Jason Bere from the Brewers in exchange for slugging first baseman Richie Sexson, pitchers Paul Rigdon and Kane Davis, and a player to be named later. The Indians keep trading, bringing back outfielder Wil Cordero from the Pirates for prospects Enrique Wilson and Alex Ramirez, both of whom will wind up as busts for...

Cody Allen taking hold of the Closer role

The closer role in the bullpen has always been a bit of a flux situation for the Cleveland Indians. From the days of Bob Wickman, to Joe Borowski and Chris Perez, the closer’s role in Cleveland has always been a rather interesting situation. The guys that give you a heart attack just to close out a ballgame. And then there are the guys that blow ballgames. The Indians have used...

Burning River Radio Ep. 5

Check out the best episode of Burning River Radio yet! Listen to Mike's great argument about why Bob Wickman's number should be retired throughout the league because he was the first teletubby to play professional baseball. Also, there are things we actually talked about like Mariano Rivera Day, Killing the AAA Astros, retiring the 1995 Indians, Omar's music career, lineup...

Cleveland Sports Life Boat – Indians Closers

I am a huge fan of the Ron and Fez show on Sirius XM Satellite radio. They do a bit on the radio called life boat, and I’m borrowing it for Cleveland sports. Here’s how it works. There are four people and only three seats remaining on the life boat. You must work your way through the list of candidates and, unfortunately, someone is designated to try their hand at long-distance...

Top 10 Indians Closers

As you may have noticed if you read the site regularly, I like to make lists. As a separate part of the All-Time Indians section of the site I will be adding position by position rankings of the top ten Indians of all time. Rather than writing individual bios for each player on this page, each name will be linked to the bio I have already written for them, assuming they have one...

Jon Lester Player Projection No. 36

Key Stats: If there was ever a pitcher to have his diet scrutinized it should have been David Wells or C.C. Sabathia or Bob Wickman. Jon Lester doesn’t deserve it looking at his frame, but this off-season it’s all Red Sox Nation has been talking about. In terms of fantasy baseball, so what? Lester has averaged 16 wins a 3.33 ERA 1.24 WHIP and 196 strikeouts over the last four...
