Nick Swisher On The Mend!

Who Needs to Rebound? Naming a player as a rebound player needs to be defined. First, it’s not necessarily the most improved player, which is typically an unproven player who has a break out season. Second, it’s not a player getting only marginally better. Instead, it is a player who had a bad year, requiring significant improvement to return to form the following year. This...

Cleveland Indians Home Run History

There is no single event in baseball history quite as exciting as a home run. This is likely, on an emotional level, because of their finality as they leave no doubt the outcome of the play as soon as they clear the fences. It is the ultimate feat of strength as a hitter can do nothing greater in any particular at bat. It is the only way to turn a deficit into a win in a split second...

Curious Case of Carlos Santana

To say that Carlos Santana had a rollercoaster season would be putting it lightly. Coming into the 2014 season, Santana was without a position as Yan Gomes was designated as the team’s everyday catcher at the end of 2013, and Nick Swisher had been the incumbent first basemen. Unless Santana was willing to be the everyday designated hitter, manager Terry Francona was going to have...

Time For Indians to Ink Key Arms to Extensions

Over the last couple years, the Cleveland Indians have done an amazing job locking up the core of their everyday lineup. It may soon be time for the club to do the same with its key pitchers, though that could be a little trickier. In the spring of 2012, the Tribe agreed to a five-year contract extension with Carlos Santana. That was only the beginning, however. Last spring, Cleveland...

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...

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. Oakland is looking to upgrade their minor league system and rebuild their roster, as was confirmed by trading Josh Donaldson. The next chip that they are flaunting is Moss. The...

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....

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...

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...

Tribe Targets: Delmon Young

It is early in free agency, but already the market is thinning in one position of interest for the Tribe. With one of the weaker offenses in baseball, a power hitter, even one without a position, is in high demand. With most of the line-up set, including Carlos Santana at first and Lonnie Chisenhall at third, what they could use most is actually a DH. While Nick Swisher is already...

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...

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.
