How to Score More; Clutch Hits or Walks?

It has been a matter of debate among Indians fans, particularly those writers who speak on the Tribe Time Now network of podcasts, why the Indians had trouble scoring runs early in the season. On one side, they weren’t getting hits with runners in scoring position. On the other, they weren’t getting many runners in scoring position. This is a solid old school versus new school...

Series Preview #15: Texas Rangers (21-23) at Cleveland Indians (20-23)

With the way the Cleveland Indians played throughout the majority of the first two months of the year, the following statement seems almost improbable to utter. The Indians have won six straight. I repeat…the Indians have won six straight. Cleveland (20-23) may not be back in the fray in the American League Central, but it at least has pulled itself back up near the .500 mark,...

Getting To Know: A’s Second Base Prospect Joey Wendle

Joey Wendle In recent times, the A’s have tended to fill their Triple-A roster with plenty of veteran players whom they feel are capable of stepping in at the major league level if and when needed. And this year is certainly no exception, as the average age of players on the Nashville roster is currently between 28 and 29 years of age. The one position player presently on the...

Bauer Blows Through Chicago; Indians 3, White Sox 1

On a cool and blustery evening in Chicago, the hard-throwing Trevor Bauer was all the Indians needed to bring some warmth to the scoreboard. Bauer tossed 7.1 innings, allowing just one run on four hits, while walking three and striking out seven en route to a 3-1 victory. The Indians logged single tallies in the first, fifth and eighth innings, courtesy of runs batted in by Michael...

Ball Played: Surprise! Defense and ex-Tribe bats haunt Indians

The St. Louis Cardinals are the epitome of a well-run franchise1 . It might be impossible to know if it is more imperative to draft the correct player or develop the player correctly, but the Cardinals have the best assembly line coming out of their farm system in MLB. Yadier Molina, Matt Adams, Kolten Wong, Matt Carpenter, and Jon Jay are five everyday starters that came from that...

Moss Grows In Damp, Dark Places, Like Right Field

As much as the lineup change that pushed Jason Kipnis to the lead-off spot and Michael Bourn to the bottom or even the bench against left handers has precipitated the recent success of the Indians offense (3.6 RPG before the move on 4/26, 5.7 RPG after [all stats accurate from 5/6]), the build up of Brandon Moss in the middle of the order has been just as important. There were two...

April By The Numbers: What Did The Month Tell Us?

It is widely known that the Cleveland Indians did not have the April that was expected of them going into the season. It was a month that left fans and pundits scratching their heads and asking “what is wrong with the Indians?” After a week of mediocre baseball, the prudent fan resulted to the old saying “it’s early.” Project that bad baseball through the entire month of...

Ball Played: Indians remain in AL cellar

Given how April has gone in 2015 for the Cleveland Indians, it does not seem surprising that their best starting pitcher this season had to miss a Saturday start against the division-rival Detroit Tigers due to food poisoning. Trevor Bauer was able to return for a Tuesday start against the Kansas City Royals in what was a battle between the best and worst teams in the American League...

4/28 Recap: Bullpen Blows Bauer’s Beauty

Player of the Game Brandon Moss hit a 3-run bomb in the 6th inning to put the Indians up 5-3, it was his 4th of the season. This came after the Royals tacked on the go-ahead run in the top of the inning, and with the Royals’ bullpen set to take over for Guthrie, the Indians may have been running out of scoring chances. This was arguably the Indians biggest hit of the season and...

“It’s Early,” is a Weak Excuse for the Same Old Problems

Everyone has heard it a million times: The baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint. This adage seems to be the rallying cry for the Cleveland Indians in recent seasons. Slow start after slow start has been met with cries of, “it’s early,” and “on this date a year ago the Indians were (some random record worse than their current one).” A year ago when the Indians started...

C-Cap Recap: Indians 13, Tigers 1 (For Reals!)

Well, I guess you’d have to be pretty gullible to think a Major League baseball team could hit a collective .186 with runners in scoring position for almost three whole weeks and not be just joshin’ ya. Give the Indians credit for sticking with that extended April Fools Day charade for as long as they did, especially convincing a new guy like Brandon Moss to play along so believably...

Versatility is the Key

The Indians have a problem. Well, they have many problems, but one can be spotted and rectified fairly easily. Despite officially having five outfielders on the roster (not including Brandon Moss, who has played nine of his twelve games in right field), the Indians have been forced to use an infielder, Mike Aviles, in the outfield for a total of 38.1 innings across six games.

If ever a baseball game were capable of halting and reversing an entire city’s blossoming springtime enthusiasm—sending every new leaf burrowing right back into its bud and every twittering songbird fleeing for Florida—it would be tonight’s 3-2 Indians loss to the Minnesota Twins.

Offensive Struggles Reminisent of a Season Ago

It wasn’t supposed to be like this again for the Cleveland Indians offense. It wasn’t supposed to be like this after getting key players healthy and adding a powerful bat in Brandon Moss. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, but through eight games it is. Through eight games, the Tribe batters have done little to erase the memory of the final two months of 2014 in which the...
