Ball Played: Blue Jays deliver knuckle(ball) sandwich to Indians

Wednesday was why Tuesday’s game hurt so bad. The margin for error with the Cleveland Indians postseason chances is too thin to allow potential wins to slip away as there will still be some games that just do not go well from the beginning. Wednesday was just such a day as the Toronto Blue Jays jumped to a big early lead and held onto it throughout in a 5-1 victory over the Indians...

Santana looks to build on nine-game hit streak

The Toronto Blue Jays have asked Ryan Goins to wear many hats, sticking him in five positions and placing him at or near the bottom of a lineup that has been the best in baseball for most of the season.

Boxscore Breakdown #130: Mistakes by the lake – Indians 9, Angels 2

Great, now the Angels can’t even catch routine flyballs. On two separate occasions the Angels just up and dropped a flyball because they lost it in the sun. That is fitting because the Angels themselves are quite lost. They just can’t do anything right anymore. The outfield defense is one of the few undeniably strong parts of the club, yet they just couldn’t do simple things...

The first came when Mike Trout missed a ball in center with one out and a runner on second. His miscue gave...

Bode Plots: What is wrong with Carlos Santana?

In his most recent stretch of games, he only has three hits in the last 26 plate appearances (3-for-21 with four walks), but he has made each of those hits count.

Fantasy Roundup: Santana’s Subpar Season

Yoenis Cespedes Yoenis Cespedes, and for that matter much of the Mets team, had a monstrous weekend in Colorado. Much of Cespedes’ damage was done Friday night when he recorded five hits, scored five runs, hit three home runs, and drove in seven runs. Those numbers are a pretty good week from a fantasy player, let alone a stat line for one night. Cespedes hasn’t really gotten...

Abandoning the Francona Second Half Surge

Not so long ago, a few weeks is all, I wrote about whether or not the Indians could expect a second half bump like they have had in previous seasons under Terry Francona. In it, I postulated that with a similar surge to 2013 and 2014 created by improved roster construction and better play from Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes in particular, the Indians could win between 81 and 85 games...
