Are the Mets eying up Ryan Raburn and David Murphy?

It would appear that the rest of the baseball world is considering the Cleveland Indians’ front office sellers as the league’s trade deadline nears. On Monday, it was a FOX Sports speculating about Brandon Moss; today, it’s Joel Sherman of the NY Post who thinks that the New York Mets could be targeting the other two Tribe right fielders.

Indians could move Brandon Moss by trade deadline

Roughly one week ago, Cleveland Indians president Mark Shapiro discussed the addition of outfielder Brandon Moss, saying that the veteran slugger has been “as productive as hoped” who is “better than we thought defensively.” Fast forward to today, and we have ourselves a bit of a contradictory report, stating that the Tribe would love to move Moss if they can find a suitor...

C-Cap Recap: Ducks on the Pond, Walk Walk Walk

Somewhere in a Rockwellian suburbia untouched by cynicism, doe-eyed Little Leaguers still don their rally caps and sing the songs of a simpler age: “Ducks on the pond / Quack quack quack / Come on, Timmy! / Give it a whack!” What they don’t realize is that Timmy has no intention of swinging the bat. Timmy is a Cleveland Indians fan, and if there’s anything he’s learned...

Offensive Woes A Puzzling Piece of Tribe’s Season

Saturday’s 9-4 win followed the recipe that has been missing for the Cleveland Indians for chunks of time this season. Hit the ball hard, score some runs early, and win some games. The steps for success have been notably absent, especially in Corey Kluber’s starts, which made the early three-run bomb from Michael Brantley, the Brandon Moss two-run blast in the third, and the...

State of the Indians: President Mark Shapiro on all things Tribe

Indians Hoping Electric Young Arms Can Lead Them Back Into Postseason

The Cleveland Indians have been a fun team to watch in the first half of the 2015 MLB season, as they’ve sported some of the best starting pitching in baseball, and also have an offense that can run very hot. The aforementioned inconsistency has been contagious throughout the roster, though, and Cleveland enters the All-Star break at just 42-46 and 11 games out of first place in...

Indians' Moss still follows A's, remembers time in Oakland fondly

In news that shouldn't be surprising to anybody that followed the Oakland Athletics during the 2012-2014 seasons, Brandon Moss has nothing but kind things to say about the green & gold. Moss, traded to the Cleveland Indians prior to this season as his contract situation became pricier for the always cash-strapped A's, shared some thoughts with Susan Slusser of the SF Chronicle...

7/6 Recap: Carrasco Unable To Repeat Performance, Tribe Blown Out Early

Player of the Game Thanks to a ball boy’s unmoved stool, Brandon Moss wins tonight’s Player of the Game. Moss hit what should have been a single or a tough double down the right field line in fourth, but the ball got caught in the stool and stopped. Preston Tucker had to run all the way in and by the time he did, Carlos Santana had scored and Moss was on third. Moss added another...

Brandon Moss on Tribe fan angst: “I can’t blame them”

Fans, the Tribe hear you loud and clear.

They have scored 66 runs in June, the fewest in the league. On the season, they’re hitting just .224 with...

Pittsburgh Pirates trade rumors: Brandon Moss edition

As the rumors fly and the debates emerge over the needs that this Pittsburgh Pirates team has, a position which hasn’t been discussed much is first base. Pedro Alvarez has been average at best this season and continues to under perform. I believe with how well the team is currently playing, adding another first basemen would make them even stronger. The Pirates have won 20 of their...

Teammate zings Lindor over paying ransom for first hit ball

The Cleveland Indians have made a habit of snagging milestone balls and holding them hostage from their teammates. We saw it when Cleveland’s bullpen demanded a bunch of Apple products in exchange for Brandon Moss’ 100th career home run ball, and the team’s pitchers were at it again over the weekend with Francisco Lindor.

Ransom sequel: Indians SPs holding Francisco Lindor's first hit ball for Samsung products

You may recall a couple weeks ago when the Cleveland Indians bullpen successfully held Brandon Moss' 100th home run ransom for various Apple products and a 50-gallon drum of lube. Apple CEO Tim Cook bailed out Moss by paying the ransom. Apparently that left the Indians starting pitching staff wanting electronics, too, inspiring the fivesome to seize an opportunity to capture a milestone...

Last week, Indians outfielder Brandon Moss reached a career milestone when he hit his 100th home run. Unfortunately, the ball went into his own team’s bullpen.

It looks as though Brandon Moss will get his milestone home run ball after all. The Cleveland Indians outfielder hit his 100th career homer against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium on June 2, and it happened to land in the Tribe’s bullpen.
