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

For the first time since September of 2000, the Indians have back-to-back American League Players of the Week. In what should come as no surprise, Carlos Santana received the honor on Monday after he batted .556 (15 for 27) with three doubles, six home runs and 10 RBI. 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...

Tribe Happenings: To buy or sell, that is the question

Here are some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… Buy or sell? Right now the Indians are 6.5 games out of first in the AL Central and are only 3.5 games out of the second wildcard. They are very much in the mix for a playoff berth as they are one stretch of hot play over a three-four week span of getting right back into the thick of things. And really, they have...

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. Sunday...

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. You just...

Carlos Santana Doesn’t Care For Balls In Play

In a series of three GIFs from Friday night’s baseballing match between the Indians of Cleveland and the Royals of Kansas City, I’ll attempt to visually encapsulate Carlos Santana‘s 2014 season to date: 1 2 3 In the second inning, Santana hit his team-leading 18th home run.

Triple Play: David Price, Carlos Santana, Jeff Francoeur

Welcome to the Triple Play. In this week’s edition, we look at the hottest pitcher in baseball, the player most named in trade rumors (who happens to be one and the same), and more, including a brief review of the latest baseball book by John Feinstein. We also examine one of the more idiotic baseball ideas to be suggested in my lifetime.   Who’s Hot? David Price, Tampa...

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...

Indians Salvage Series and Beat Chen, Royals 10-3 in Finale

It can almost be expected when you remember that Ned Yost puts out his “white flag” lineup each and every Sunday. While the season finale loss was frustrating, Royals fans must remember to think about the big picture. Carlos Santana homered two more times and the Indians finally broke out of their slump, ending the Royals’ five-game winning streak with a 10-3 win on Sunday...

Surging Santana helps end Tribe’s Skid; Indians 10, Royals 3

After starting the Indians 11 game road trip on such a positive note by taking three in a row in Detroit, the Tribe ended it on another positive note by salvaging the final game of their series in Kansas City by a score of 10-3. The Indians started their post-All-Star break road trip 3-0, but then Cleveland had dropped six of their next seven.  Using a comeback approach on Sunday...

Second Thoughts Game #104: Cleveland 5, Kansas City 7

Cleveland is now two games under .500 on the post-All-Star road trip at 4-6. While Cleveland cannot finish the road trip over .500, Cleveland nevertheless has a positive run differential on the road trip. This road trip has seen Cleveland outscore its AL Central opponents by 7 runs, and yet Cleveland’s record on the trip remains two games under .500. Run differential is a better...

Aoki, Butler Lead Royals Over Tribe, 7-5

In the middle of the second inning, I thought the game was over. The Indians had a five run lead, and the offense looked to be dormant. Kansas City started chipping in the third inning, and tied it in the fourth. Carlos “The One Man Wrecking Crew” Santana, and the Cleveland Indians put a five spot on the board in the second inning. The inning scoring in the second inning started...

Royals look to keep riding newest wave of confidence

It wasn't long ago that the Kansas City Royals ascended to the top of the AL Central behind their longest winning streak in two decades. While their current run is far more modest, it has at least given them sole possession of second place. The Royals seek a fifth consecutive win overall and sixth straight at home against the sputtering Cleveland Indians on Saturday night. A...

Consistantly Inconsistant. Part Deux.

Player of the Game Carlos Santana, as much as this hurts for me to say, is continuing to punish the ball- and this trend continued tonight. This followed his big night at the dish Tuesday, when he went 4-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored while blasting his 15th home run of the year and adding two doubles in the Indians’ 8-2 win over the Twins. More details of his night are...

Nori Walks Off, Royals Sink Indians in the Bottom of the 14th, 2-1

  This game didn’t see it’s first hit until the top of the fifth inning when Carlos Santana singled off of Danny Duffy. The first Royals base runner came in the seventh when Omar Infante singled, but was stranded. The first of two Royals runs came in the eighth inning when Mike Moustakas hit a little league homerun. It was ruled a double and a two-base throwing error, and was...

Second Thoughts Game #102: Indians 1, Royals 2

A perfect game that could've been. A throw that shouldn't have been made. A shutout victory that wasn't. It's tough to definitively say what could've been in the game of baseball, but if there was ever one single play to point to as the primary cause for a loss, Ryan Raburn accomplished that feat on Thursday. Danny Duffy had his good stuff working, but Corey Kluber...

Kluber got Raburn-ed, and the Axe Drops in Extras; Royals 2, Indians 1

The low scoring affair in Minnesota followed the Tribe to Kansas City as they managed to score only one run in tonight’s contest. Defensive miscues and two misplaced pitches led to the Royals taking the first game in this four game series in walk-off fashion. Everyone in Cleveland was keeping their mouth shut as Corey Kluber was throwing a gem against the Royals through six innings...

The Cleveland Indians will look to make up ground in the American League Central Division while trying to hold off the hard charging Kansas City Royals. The two teams will play a four-game set starting Thursday night from Kauffman Stadium.

Second Thoughts Game #100: Indians 8, Twins 2

What a much needed win by the Tribe on Tuesday after losing two of their last three games. This game saw the return of Danny Salazar who hasn’t pitched in a big league game since May 15th.  It also saw Carlos Santana and Nick Swisher have offensive nights that we haven’t seen from either of them much this season. Santana might have had an edge against Yohan Pino as he...

Santana tries to follow up season-high showing

Carlos Santana has gone through his share of peaks and valleys in an overall disappointing season, but the Cleveland Indians are hoping his latest effort leads to a positive stretch.
