5/25 Recap: E1? Bingo.

Player of the Game It would seem more appropriate to pick the goat of the game after one like today (probably Zach McAllister), but for tradition’s sake, the Player of the Game was Roberto Perez with a score of 5.83. His three run, second inning home run gave the Indians their first lead of the game and he walked later one to go 1/3 on the day. While the rest of the offense generally...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, May 22

The boom-or-bust Brewers busted in Atlanta, which is always a very distinct possibility, but starter Danny Salazar came through as expected and I got a big payoff from a switch I made after lineups came out, subbing in Mike Aviles for Jose Ramirez. Originally I had Ramirez in there as he’d been batting second in Carlos Santana’s absence, but with Santana reappearing in Cleveland’s...

Moss Grows In Damp, Dark Places, Like Right Field

As much as the lineup change that pushed Jason Kipnis to the lead-off spot and Michael Bourn to the bottom or even the bench against left handers has precipitated the recent success of the Indians offense (3.6 RPG before the move on 4/26, 5.7 RPG after [all stats accurate from 5/6]), the build up of Brandon Moss in the middle of the order has been just as important. There were two...

5/7 Recap: More Bullpen Blunders Botch Attempt At Series Win

Player of the Game Playing his game the best way he knows how, Carlos Santana was responsible for both some early scoring and a late attempt at a comeback. In his second at bat, Santana was the first batter to walk during the carousel mentioned later, then in his final at bat, he hit a solo home run to bring the game within one run. The Royals would ultimately score two more in...

Indians Lack Fun-Damentally Sound Style of Baseball

It’s no secret that the Indians’ defense is still one of the worst in baseball. A quick perusal of will give any Indians antagonist enough ammunition to criticize their defense for several weeks. This past week, Owen Watson of fangraphs explained how the Indians defense is so poor that they are wrecking a very fine pitching staff. As of Friday, the Indians were...

Carlos Santana; All Around The Diamond

It is no secret the Cleveland Indians’ manager Terry Francona loves versatility on his team. Tito prefers players like Mike Aviles and Jose Ramirez that can play multiple positions without skipping a beat. Over the past three seasons this has been tried with Tribe first baseman Carlos Santana. Although Santana has seemed to have found a home at first base, this year marked the...

Brantley, Santana boast good numbers vs. Royals starter

Pitching effectively hasn't been much of a problem for Kansas City Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura. Keeping his emotions in check has been a far bigger issue. Ventura has left all four of his starts earlier than he or the team hoped and he'll get another chance to atone for his actions Wednesday night as the Royals seek to sweep the struggling Cleveland Indians.

“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...

Milestones are a big part of baseball, for both players and fans. And while the circumstances aren't always ideal, reaching those career milestones can often provide silver lining to an otherwise lousy day at the ballpark.
