7/3 Recap: Rain Can Delay, But Can’t Postpone Indians Win Streak

Player of the Game For the second time in three games, Brandon Moss helped the Indians score in multiple ways.

Buye Como Va

Don't yell at me! I own Carlos Santana and I know how awful he's been! It makes sense that his name is Carlos Santana, because Carlos Santana looks like Edward James Olmos and the acne scars Olmos has are how deep Carlos Santana's scarred my fantasy soul. Sometimes I wake at night in a cold sweat, frightened that Carlos Santana has found his way on all of my fantasy teams, only...

Breaking Up the Gang: Why Ty Van Burkleo Should be Removed

Personally, I have never been on to reach for a scape goat or ask for the head of a coach of any kind. In general, the players on the field are responsible for their own actions and when some coaches in recent Indians history have been let go, I have thought it was too early or unnecessary, particularly in the case of the architect of the bullpen mafia, Scott Radinsky. That being...
