Today in Tribe History: July 29, 1996

The Indians trade infielders Carlos Baerga and  Alvaro Espinoza to the Mets in exchange for Jeff Kent and Jose Vizcaino.

James’ Day Unequaled until Chisenhall

If most Indians fans remember Chris James, it’s as the other player who came to Cleveland with Sandy Alomar Jr. and Carlos Baerga from San Diego in the Joe Carter deal. But one afternoon at the Oakland Coliseum in 1991, James had the game of his life, setting the team record with nine runs batted in – a mark equaled last week by Lonnie Chisenhall in a rout of the Texas Rangers...

Alex Cole: Tribe’s Real Life Willie Mays Hayes? Reliving Yesteryear

Commonly, major league baseball teams come up with some reasons for their fans to believe—some points of interest which they hope will cause the fan base to buy tickets, however contrived they may seem. The Cleveland Indians have boasted various mantras over the years – official or otherwise. The current #TribeTown qualifies. For some reason, I recall: “Come Alive with the...

Major League turns 25

It was twenty-five years ago today that the movie Major League opened in theaters. Much has changed since Randy Newman's song Burn On played in the opening sequence for the first time back in 1989. You could start with the team. The Indians of David Ward's movie were lovable losers, mirroring the futility of the actual team since the 1950's. Ward's Indians experienced...

It’s time to say goodbye to Chief Wahoo

I have spent a lot of time and energy in my life defending Chief Wahoo. In many ways, I love Chief Wahoo. It’s an image that reminds me of my youth, of my mom and dad taking my brother, sister, and I to a game every year. It reminds me of talking Tribe with my late grandfather. It reminds me of Albert Belle, Carlos Baerga, Kenny Lofton, Omar Vizquel, Charles Nagy, Jim Thome, and...

Asdrubal Cabrera Vs. Carlos Baerga Revisited

Going all the way back to the first week of December last year I wrote an article comparing Asdrubal Cabrera to Carlos Baerga. With Cabrera's struggles this season now seemed like the perfect time to revisit that Cabrera/Baerga piece. For those who missed the article - which is linked in the sentence above - the basic idea was that both players were very good bats in the middle...

On This Day in History | 1993

20 years ago today, Jim Abbott took to the mound at Yankee Stadium in front of 27,125 fans on an overcast, somewhat damp day. Abbott entered that game with a record of 9-11 with a 4.31 ERA for the Yankees in 1993 – largely unimpressive. In the December before the season, he was traded to New York by the Angels after a couple of good years in California, but couldn’t quite carry...

The past seven days were well on their way to being the worst week of Tribe baseball since the days of 2009 The Bullpen From Hell Part 2. The Tigers stomped all over them for four nights and all but ended any shot the Wahoos had at overtaking them for AL Central division supremacy. There is still a Wild Card spot to contend with and plenty of baseball left to be played. The flailing...
