Second Thoughts Game #116: Cleveland 6, NY Yankees 10

Cleveland Defense on the Defensive The league-wide respect for a one Derek Jeter is profound. As an above-average hitter who played Shortstop in New York for the entirety of his career, Derek Jeter's respect is so wide-spread that the official scorer deemed it insufficient that Derek Jeter merely tie Honus Wagner for 6th on the all-time hit list. Jeter thrice-blest shall...

8/8 Recap: Walks & Errors Lead to More Tribe Terrors

Player of the Game Carlos Santana was right in the middle of all the Indians scoring tonight, starting in the first with an RBI single to knock in Jason Kipnis and give the Indians an early (and short lived) 1-0 lead. He doubled in another two runs in the seventh, then singled in the ninth to go 3/4 with 3 RBI. While it was his bad play that started things off poorly for the Indians...

Free Passes Allow Yanks to Walk to Victory; Yankees 10, Indians 6

It started poorly and only got worse Friday night for the Cleveland Indians. Trevor Bauer continued his road struggles and lacked control, while his defense continued to give the New York Yankees all the chances they needed to take advantage and coast to a 10-6 win. The Yankees scored five runs in the first inning off Bauer, then five more in the sixth against the weak, underside...

Gomes Has Hit Stride This Year as Indians Full-Time Catcher

In a short amount of time, Cleveland Indians catcher Yan Gomes has gone from being unheralded trade throw-in to one of the Tribe’s most consistent hitters and more important players. Entering the 2013 baseball season, the Cleveland Indians had hopes to start taking the catching duties away from Carlos Santana in the hopes of prolonging the career of one of the team’s best power...

Current Tribe Boasts Benefits of Previous Trades

Despite being the smartest person I know, my sister has not always known what makes a good trade. When we were kids, she traded our prized Charizard Pokémon card to the boy down the street. I don’t remember what we got in return, only that, in my eyes, it wasn’t nearly enough. Sure, she won the affections of her kindergarten crush, but our deck of cards was now severely lacking...

Sizing up Santana and Uniform Notes …While We’re Waiting

I found this piece by Ben Lindberg to be interesting. Carlos Santana may be the subject that started the thought process, but I thought the concept was fun. We really can explain away anything that we couldn’t predict. Here’s the money paragraph- “Maybe early-season Santana’s swing was off. Maybe his position switch really was messing with his mind. (He hasn’t played third...

Can Iwakuma slow down Santana?

Carlos Santana is locked in at the plate after a slow start to the season, putting together a historic showing in the Cleveland Indians' last series. The Seattle Mariners could struggle to keep up with Santana given their recent offensive ineptitude.

Carlos Santana named AL Player of the Week

Carlos Santana was feeling it over the last week. So much that there was little question as to who would win the American League Player of the Week. Santana was in a class of his own over the past week. He was the star of an otherwise dull and disappointing road swing for the Indians. Santana put on a one-man hitting clinic. Santana left little doubt in the Player of the Week conversation...

BTS Player of the Week – Cleveland Indians’ Carlos Santana

By Anthony Weber Player of Week- Carlos Santana (7/21-7/27) Carlos Santana’s 2014 season could have been summed up as dismal and a bitter disappointment for the Cleveland Indians; at least that was the circumstance up until last week.  In 88 games played spanning from Opening Day to July 20th, Santana had a .204 batting average, .380 slugging percentage and a .728 OPS.  All three...

Carlos Santana…surprise, surprise….AL Player of the Week

After tearing apart the Kansas City Royals this weekend, it was no shocker that Tribe first baseman/DH Carlos Santana has been named American League Player of the Week. Over his last six games, Carlos has had quite the run. How does 14-23, six homers, three doubles, 10 RBIs, eight runs scored sound to you? Pretty good. With his walking abilities in tow, Santana has reached base 20...

Carlos Santana named AL Player of the Week

He had multi-homer games on Friday and Sunday against the Royals, becoming the first Indians player to do that as...

Slow start behind him, Santana producing with authority

In a week in which the wheels came off what was shaping up as a promising road trip, Carlos Santana erased almost all of the memories of a slow start. Santana hit a major league-best .556 this past week against the Twins and Royals, going 15 of 27 with six home runs and 10 RBI. Five of the homers came in the four-game series against Kansas City including multi-homer games on Friday...

Second Thoughts Game #105: Indians 10, Royals 3

Should the Indians be satisfied with this road trip? No, absolutely not. Should they be happy with how they ended it? I'll give it to them. While the series in Detroit may have had a hangover effect on the Tribe as they traveled to Minnesota and Kansas City, they at least made sure to end a tough stretch on a high note before returning home and heading into an off-day.

Tribe Weekend Recap: Santana streaking, rotation turning, and opportunities blown

The Indians couldn’t have picked a worse week to wet themselves. I’ve said this before and I will say it again, the only consistent thing about this team is their inconsistency. Just when you want to believe after they take three of four in Detroit, they come out and lose two of three to the Minnesota Twins in front of losing three of four in Kansas City to the Royals.

Indians flop in KC, Roadtrip

The Cleveland Indians were blessed with an 11-game road swing right out of the all-star break. The Tribe has not been home since way back on July 13. As the Indians have proven multiple times throughout the 2014 season, they are a much better home baseball team than they are away. The Indians have spent plenty of time as the worst road club in the league. This most recent road trip...

Animated: Carlos Santana’s 5 HR weekend

The Indians lost three of four to the Royals this weekend, which is the bad news. Carlos Santana is doing this to baseballs though, which is the good news.   That would be five home runs in three games–the first two off fire-baller Yordano Ventura. Santana now leads the team with 20 home runs. Despite an awful first few months of the season, Santana’s combination of patience...
