Baserunning Mistakes, Cabrera’s Big Day Give Tigers Series Win; Tigers 8, Indians 6

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? No. The Tigers put two runs on the board in the first and never trailed, beating the Indians 8-6 in the Sunday afternoon rubber match of their three-game series. In his second start since being hit in the jaw by a line drive in a game against the Chicago White Sox on April 14th, Carlos Carrasco pitched 4.1 innings, allowing five runs on nine hits. He...

4/26 Recap: Carrasco Struggles As Tigers Take Series

Player of the Game Carlos Santana went 2 for 3 with an RBI and 2 runs scored today. The 4-5-6 hitters (Santana, Raburn, & Moss) were the offensive catalysts for the Tribe today.

Righty Tighty, Lefty Lose-y

Over the years, the current incarnation of the Cleveland Indians has gathered a reputation that they cannot hit left handed pitching and they have done nothing to stem that so far in 2015 as they have began the season 1-4 against south paws with a more fair 4-4 record against right handers. In general, the blame has fallen upon the left handed heavy lineup, something that is generally...

Carlos Santana hits home run milestone

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. That was the case for Carlos Santana on Sunday. The Indians first baseman hit his 100th career homer in a 7-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. Sure...

4/19 Recap: Twins Huff & Plouffe, Blow House Down

Player of the Game It took awhile, but Carlos Santana gave the Indians their first and only extra base hit in the ninth inning with his second home run of the season high off the seats in right field. While it did little to erase the six run deficit, no other Indians player was deserving of today’s honor as both the pitching and hitting were generally less than desirable. Milestone...

I Don’t Know. Third Base!

The famous Abott and Costello skit ‘Who’s On First’ goes something along the lines of “Who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know, third base” While in the skit these happen to be the players actual names, this could turn out to be a real life scenario for the Cleveland Indians in the not-so-distant future. “Who’s On First?” Okay, so this one has to be the...

Offensive Struggles Reminisent of a Season Ago

It wasn’t supposed to be like this again for the Cleveland Indians offense. It wasn’t supposed to be like this after getting key players healthy and adding a powerful bat in Brandon Moss. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, but through eight games it is. Through eight games, the Tribe batters have done little to erase the memory of the final two months of 2014 in which the...

3 Waiver Wire Pickups, Week 2

With a full week of baseball now under our belts, the fantasy baseball season is in full swing and we’ve already had plenty of action to warrant some waiver wire moves. Whether you’re replacing an injured player, picking up a setup guy who just got the closer gig (there’s already been five such instances in the first week alone — remind me again why you should pay for saves...

Indians Series Summary No. 2: Wham! KaPow! Splat!

We all know the old adage in baseball that good pitching beats good hitting. But when I’m reminded of it I find myself cringing and turning to the list of fallacies in deductive logic that might explain why it makes me uncomfortable. This time I’m thinking maybe it’s the “Ludic fallacy,” the failure to take into account unknown unknowns in determining the probability of...

Cleveland Indians set for first big weekend series with Tigers

Progressive Field should be rocking this weekend, and for good reason. Not only will the Indians be opening up Progressive Field on Friday afternoon for the first time in 2015, but it will be against their division rival in the Detroit Tigers. It’ll only be the first weekend of the baseball season, but this one could end up being one of the biggest and most important weekends for...

Lack of production in lineup leads to Astros loss against Indians

Carlos Santana is beginning to develop a knack for hitting home runs on his birthday. Santana celebrated his 29th birthday in style Wednesday night, hitting a solo homer to help the Indians to a 2-0 win over the Houston Astros. It's the third home run he's hit on his birthday after knocking two out of the park on his big day in 2012. In five career games on his birthday, he's gone...

2015 A.L. Central Preview-The Cleveland Indians

So over the years, I have never really disliked the Indians for some reason, maybe it's that I never really felt that threatened by them.   I mean they had a good run in the 90's, and showed that mid-sized cities can have a huge love for baseball.  I think they sold out Jacob's Stadium for something like 5 straight years (455 consecutive games to be exact) during that...

One of the Best Behind the Plate: Yan Gomes

Two years ago, I remember sitting at a table with the Did The Tribe Win Last Night staff discussing whom we thought would be breakout players that season. We got on the subject of Lou Marson and had a “€œLou Lovefest”€ for a few minutes before moving on the next player. Some of us had high hopes for Marson during that 2013 season. However, in April, Marson was placed on...
