Playing for Keeps: Carlos Santana

In many fantasy leagues, there's a 20 games played requirement to retain eligibility at a position for the following year. With only 11 games played behind the dish in 2014, Carlos Santana will enter the 2015 season without catcher eligibility for the first time in his career. It's a bummer for keeper league owners who were slotting him as a catcher, but he remains a solid keeper...

The Importance of Base Running

Baseball is a game of many facets, many of which are often ignored, simply because they are not easy to judge statistically. Because of this, hitting and pitching are often overvalued while other parts like defense (beyond errors and fielding percent), managing, a catcher’s ability to call a game and base running (beyond steals) are simply set aside. One of the benefits of tracking...

Finding a Role for Nick Swisher

With the Indians’ acquisition of Brandon Moss, the talks have started that someone will need to go in order to make room on the field for the first baseman/outfielder. The only question is, who would that be? Carlos Santana will be returning as the Tribe’s first baseman, while the entire outfield is back in Michael Brantley, Michael Bourn, and David Murphy. Ryan Raburn is also...

How would Brandon Moss fit with the Indians?

The Indians may be on the verge of adding a big bat to the lineup. According to several reports, the Cleveland Indians are in talks with the Oakland A’s to acquire first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss.

Indians “optimistic” about acquiring Brandon Moss

There’s a glut of 1B/DH/OF types in Oakland (and quite frankly, in Cleveland too), and one of those players seems likely to be moved this winter. The A’s are talking to the Cleveland Indians about Brandon Moss, and the Tribe is “optimistic” that a deal will get done between the two clubs. #Indians guardedly optimistic that trade for Oakland's Brandon Moss will get done....

A Moss pickup by the Indians would be a move to celebrate

So I was all set to write an article on the A’s specifically on Brandon Moss for Tuesday – something I hinted at in my article on Wednesday - and of course the next day the big new is the Indians have been in talks with the A’s to acquire Moss. Before I dive into numbers it is clear the A’s are selling, but they aren’t quite having a fire sale. They seem intent on not...

Is Carlos Santana Cleveland’s Best Twitter Account?

If one was to rank Cleveland athletes by who would be the best to follow on Twitter—be it due to charisma, penchant for intriguing statements, or simple awesomeness—where would Indians slugger Carlos Santana rank? The Tribe’s catcher turned third baseman turned first baseman (and sometimes designated hitter) has taken his quiet in-season approach and crept on to the Twitter...

Improved D a Need for the Indians

Anyone watching the Cleveland Indians over the course of the 2014 season was punished with a defensive display rarely seen off of Little League diamonds. That may be a bit of a harsh comparison, but the Indians did lead all of baseball in errors last season with 116. It was hardly their worst fielding season statistically in recent memory, but on a club returning from a Wild Card...

The makeup of the 2019 Cleveland Indians lineup

It’s hard to predict the makeup of a major league roster in five years.  In sports, all it takes is one injury to end or derail a promising career.  Besides the obvious injury factor, you never know if a player is going to exceed or fall short of expectations and contract value. Who would’ve thought Michael Brantley would finish third in the MVP race this past season?  Corey...

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...

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...

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...

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...
