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...

New Book Coming out About ‘The Jake’

On April 4, 1994, Vince McKee was one of the 41,459 fans celebrating the opening of the Indians’ new home, Jacobs Field, and watching a new era begin in Tribe history. “It was a blast, and it was really the beginning of a lot of good memories,” McKee said. Now, as the park – now Progressive Field – celebrates its 20th anniversary, McKee has published a new book detailing...

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...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Asdrubal Baerga, a tired rotation, and a Sunday game-changing comeback

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...

A three year Indians review: Shortstop

This is the third part in this series, and thus far the Indians have been strongly improved over two positions.  The first two positions I looked at were first base and second base, so it's time to continue across the diamond in counter-clockwise fashion and look at the shortstop position. This is the only position which has stayed consistent over the last few years for the...

Baerga, Hart inducted into Cleveland Indians HOF

CLEVELAND -- There are certainly many ways to remember the Indians era of greatness in the 1990s, but Carlos Baerga put a new spin on things this weekend. As Baerga reminisced, the memory of pregame before the 1995 Division Series opener against Boston in Progressive Field came to mind. The Indians walked on the field, saw Boston starter Roger Clemens and let him know their feelings...

New York Mets Second Basemen: Positional Study

Last time, I examined Atlanta Braves centerfielders. This week, I will look at another up-the-middle position for another National League...

Prima Donnas and Clubhouse Chemistry: A Met Perspective

If Shakespeare were to write a play about the state of the Mets these days, it would probably be titled “Much Ado About Valdespin” as that’s about all anyone has to talk about outside of the largely dismal performance of the team between the lines. Inasmuch as the role young number 1 plays on the team is largely limited to that of utility player/pinch hitter, I wonder if the...
