AL Central has improved a lot since the Winter Meetings

The annual Major League Baseball Winter Meetings took place this offseason in San Diego last week and most of the biggest moves just happened to be made inside the American League Central division.

The AL Central’s Rotating Rotations

While we are still early into the off-season, there have been big moves all around. Although many of those moves have taken place in the National League, the American League Central has seen its share of shuffling.

Moss Adds Instant Credibility to Middle of Tribe Lineup

When the Indians swung a deal with the Oakland Athletics on Monday to acquire veteran first baseman and outfielder Brandon Moss it was a bit of a surprise. However, it should certainly be viewed a pleasant one. Granted the deal had been rumored since late last week, it was surprising in that Tribe management made a move to upgrade the everyday lineup after maintaining from the start...

Cleveland Indians: What the Brandon Moss trade means

With the acquisition of 1B/OF Brandon Moss on Tuesday, the Indians added another power bat to their lineup.  Moss, whom went through hip surgery in October, should provide a much-needed boost to an Indians team that finished ninth in the AL in home runs this past season. It will be interesting to see where Moss fits in the roster with his versatility.  Moss spent time in left field...

Finding a Role for Nick Swisher

With the Indians’ acquisition of Brandon Moss, the talks have started that someone will need to go in order to make room on the field for the first baseman/outfielder. The only question is, who would that be? Carlos Santana will be returning as the Tribe’s first baseman, while the entire outfield is back in Michael Brantley, Michael Bourn, and David Murphy. Ryan Raburn is also...

With Selling out of the Way, Billy Beane and the A’s Looking to Buy

The Oakland Athletics have traded three All-Stars since Thanksgiving. With this has come a ton of criticism from both the A’s fan base and experts around the baseball world. Coming off three consecutive trips to the playoffs, it made little sense that Oakland would sell off quality players for a bunch of no-name prospects. But in reality, this has been Beane’s philosophy over...

Why Brandon Moss is a perfect fit for the Indians

So, you all wanted more power in the lineup? Well now you’ve got it. The Cleveland Indians shipped a prospect out and brought in an All-Star. Nice to be on the other side of things for once, isn’t it? Brandon Moss, a 31-year old power hitter with two years left of team control, is your new middle-of-the-order bat. Yes, I am aware he hits left-handed, but in reality, that doesn’t...

Numbers show Moss to be a good fit with the Indians

When the deal for Brandon Moss first started to break almost a week ago I half joked that most of the fans would hate the deal for a myriad of reasons: he is hurt, he has a low average and he isn’t a right-handed bat. Today I am sad to see how many people jump to hate every deal the Indians make, even when it is clearly an excellent addition at a low price. My goal with this...

A Rolling Tribe Does Gather Moss

Sometimes rumors do come true and this time a trade that has been brewing for about a week has finally come to fruition. The move was a rare one for a couple of reasons.
