Indians offseason checklist: Four steps to a contender in '15

Well, Tribe faithful, here we are again. On the outside looking in on the MLB postseason. Last season the Indians made it by the skin of their teeth and we watched our team put up a goose egg. But outside of that, a legitimate run has been a distant memory. The Indians have a plethora of young talent between the Triple-A and Major League levels, helped by recent drafts and trades...

Biggest Holes to Fill in 2015 & a Shovel To Fill Them

With the end of the post-season fast approaching and with it, the advent of free agency and the beginning of the trading season. It is obvious that the Indians need help if they want to be a World Series contender in 2015 and not just a Wild Card contender, although where that help comes from is yet to be decided. As always, super star free agents are likely off the table and while...

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...

Cleveland Indians Top 10 Defensive Plays for 2014

The Indians may have had the worst defense in all of baseball this season, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t moments of excellence. In fact, there were more than 80 plays designated as especially impressive and those plays have been whittled down to the best ten plays of the year. Of course, completely throwing away some of the plays that didn’t quite make the cut is no fun...

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...

A Year for the Record Books: Changes in Career & Single Season Records

The past season has been something very special for quite a few players and there has been more movement than in any recent season in the Indians statistical leader boards.

These are only...

End of season post-mortem: Cleveland Indians

After an early elimination from the playoffs in 2013, anything less than an extended run into the postseason in 2014 would be disappointing. The Indians are now disappointed. A whole crew of players that casual baseball fans have never heard of were good enough to get into that Wild Card game and despite many of them improving as they entered their prime, but it wasn’t enough this...

Editor's note: Part 1 which focused on the pitching was posted last week. Throughout the final two months of the season, the Cleveland Indians have boasted one of the best rotations in baseball. Unfortunately, a fried bullpen and impotent offense have cost them any realistic shot at the playoffs. Looking at the lineup, the Indians have three young, budding stars who anchor the...

When comparing the 2013 play-off Indians with 2014 team, there have been a surprising number of improvements considering the less successful outcome. Offensively, Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes, Lonnie Chisenhall and Carlos Santana all had better seasons than in 2013, while Jason Kipnis and Michael Bourn put up similar numbers. Cody Allen was significantly better than Chris Perez ever...
