To shift or not to shift, that is the question

The Minnesota Twins recently hired Paul Molitor to manage their club as they take another step in trying to rebuild and get back into the mix of the AL Central. Molitor hopes to bring some new ideas to the team in an effort to turn things around in the Twin Cities. As a big advocate of the over-shift, Molitor says players need to be open to change. But is it really a good idea...

Terry Francona's reaction to a player's 'double dare' is priceless

Major League Baseball players have been over in Japan for the MLB Japan All-Star Series -- and plenty of fun has been had from Carlos Santana dressing like a samurai to Yasiel Puig embracing the culture. But the in-flight shenanigans involving Los Angeles Angels pitcher Hector Santiago and Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona may be the funniest item to surface yet. Santiago...

Tribe Targets: Delmon Young

It is early in free agency, but already the market is thinning in one position of interest for the Tribe. With one of the weaker offenses in baseball, a power hitter, even one without a position, is in high demand. With most of the line-up set, including Carlos Santana at first and Lonnie Chisenhall at third, what they could use most is actually a DH. While Nick Swisher is already...

The MLB All-Stars got no-hit in Japan

It hasn’t been a good tour of Japan so far for the MLB All-Star team that has been sent over there. They’ve lost the first three games in the five game Japan All-Star Series, and on Saturday, they lost 4-0 and got no-hit. Hoo boy. Here’s a highlight video of Samurai Japan’s no-hitter. This wasn’t exactly a mediocre team that the MLB All-Stars put on the field. Stars like...

Santana shares pictures from Japan, representing on MLB All-Star team

Indians Trade Winds May Become Gusty this Winter

After three weeks of reflection on the Cleveland Indians and their disappointing 2014 season, it’s time to move on. While the World Series enters Game 3 this evening, the Tribe is just about a week away from kicking off their offseason. And while the defense was horrendous, Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn underachieved for the second straight season and the acquisition of John Axford...

2014 Indians winter ball assignments

Here is a current listing of players from the Indians’ organization participating in winter ball this offseason. This is not a complete list as it will undoubtedly change over the course of winter ball as players who started the season finish play in mid-November and new players come on board after that. Also, once the World Series is over and the MLB offseason officially gets...

Indians ask fans about Wahoo, popular players in survey

It’s that time of year again and the Cleveland Indians want to know what their fans and season ticket holders think. Not a lot of surprising questions, per usual. The Indians once again asked about all their various uniforms and Chief Wahoo himself. They also asked for a ranking of the top five Cleveland Indians, which makes sense. One slight wrinkle though: They included manager...

Solving Carlos Santana

Today continues DTTWLN’s three week examination of the Indians’ 2014 season and where it fell short of the playoff expectations established last winter. The staff will examine where the season went wrong and the challenges the front office faces to make the Indians contenders in 2015.   I’ve always thought the Cleveland Indians felt when they acquired Carlos Santana that he...

Early Potential 2015 Indians Line-Up

Placing the 2014 Indians season fully into the rear view mirror, this will be the initial look at next year’s team. While this is likely to change many times throughout the off-season as trades are made and free agents are signed, a starting point is needed to notice any changes that are made. As there is only one player leaving the Indians through free agency and a lesser one...

Hot corner key to Indians success in 2015?

After a long hard winter in Cleveland, it had to be refreshing for the Tribe to know that the 2014 season arrived with spring training in the warm confines of Goodyear, AZ. Coming off of a year where they made it into the one game playoff against Tampa Bay, only to come up a little short, they entered spring training with a glaring question: ‘So who’s on third base’? With the...
