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...

Roster Update: Zach Walters was removed from the Major League disabled list today and optioned to AAA Columbus, where he was already playing as part of his rehab assignment. Player of the Game A low batting average has been hiding a fairly productive start to the season for Brandon Moss, but nothing could hide his breakout night against Detroit.

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. While...

Tribe Victory Falls Out of Reach; Twins 3, Indians 2

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? No! After controlling the game for the first five innings, the Indians defense fell apart in the bottom of the sixth, allowing the Minnesota Twins back into the game. The poor defense was enough to allow Minnesota to score a pair of runs and tie the game before Trevor Plouffe hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning for a 3-2 Twins victory...

C-Cap Recap: Perfection to Dejection

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. Hyperbole? Maybe. But it’s 12:24 on a Friday night, and much like how Britt McHenry feels...

I Don’t Know. Third Base!

The famous Abott and Costello skit ‘Who’s On First’ goes something along the lines of “Who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know, third base” While in the skit these happen to be the players actual names, this could turn out to be a real life scenario for the Cleveland Indians in the not-so-distant future. “Who’s On First?” Okay, so this one has to be the...

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...

What impact do these contract extensions have on the Cleveland Indians?

As part of the Cleveland Indians 2015 season preview, WFNY’s Andrew Clayman expertly tackled the subject of the contention window and how long fans can expect it to stay open. Since that post, the Indians have signed Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco to extensions locking them up with the team through that contention window. The next obvious question for fans to ask is if the budget...

Here He Comes to Save the Day; Mighty Moss is on His Way

For the Indians fans that have been searching for another powerful stick in the middle of the order over the past couple of seasons, your hero may have finally arrived. The Tribe traded for the powerful first baseman/outfielder, Brandon Moss, from Oakland this offseason—a move that has surprisingly flown somewhat under the radar.
