The WAR Room: Brown coming around in Lake County

The WAR Room is back again, bringing you the 2014 advanced stats for every Cleveland minor leaguer. After looking at the hitters last week, today we focus on the pitchers. Of course, it is always important to keep context in mind, just like with scouting. A pitcher who is old for his level using that experience to succeed against young, inexperienced hitters must be taken with...

7/22 Recap: Salazar Good Enough in Return, Santana Great

Roster Update: For the third straight day, the Indians brought a pitcher up from AAA to start and this time it was Danny Salazar. Reliever C.C. Lee was sent down to make room, giving the Indians a much more typical eight man bullpen. Player of the Game Carlos Santana did it all tonight, reaching base via the smallest and largest ways possible. In his first at bat, Santana lead off...

Indians 3, Twins 4: It smelled funny from the start

8:29 PM – We join our heroes in Minneapolis, during the top of the second inning after an uneventful first. Much has been made in the booth of the fact that this is the Indians’ first trip back to Target Field since clinching their 2013 playoff spot.  That is somewhat hard to believe.  I find it much easier to believe that Roberto Perez just grounded into an inning-ending double...

7/18 Recap: Indians Use 7 in the 7th to Win First Game in Second Half

Roster Update: Zach McAllister was demoted during the All-Star break to give the Indians a ten man bullpen again, but he is scheduled to be the Indians 26th man tomorrow night and could be back with the team permanently by his next turn in the rotation after that. C.C. Lee was brought up for the moment, but look for at least two more moves before the next series starts. Player of...

Ranking the 2014 roster at the All-Star Break, part one

There have been plenty of ups and downs for Cleveland so far in 2014, yet the team is entering the All-Star break at a perfectly average 47-47. There have been a few notable breakout stars and players performing above their true talent, but given the number of disappointments Cleveland's gone through, .500 actually feels pretty good right now. These rankings represent a snapshot...

Video: Hawk Harrelson calls Asian pitchers “Orientals” for the second night in a row

Hawk Harrelson’s subjectivity is often a topic of debate, but there’s no debating his latest misstep. The polarizing White Sox broadcaster used the term “Orientals” on Comcast Sportsnet Chicago for the second night in a row when discussing Boston Red Sox reliever Junichi Tazawa’s delivery. On Wednesday night, he did the exact same thing…while talking about the very...

Clippers fall to Bulls, 7-5

COLUMBUS, OH – Comebacks can make for exciting games, but they also make life difficult for the teams trying to complete them. The Columbus Clippers (22-23) came from behind not once, but twice on Thursday night, but they fell one comeback short in a 7-5 loss to the Durham Bulls (27-21) at Huntington Park. The Clippers dug themselves into an early hole by allowing two runs in the...

Second Thoughts Game #47: Tigers 10, Indians 11

Feel-Good Win of the Year A walk-off balk is one of the rarest occasions in baseball. From some cursory research, it appears this has only happened about 15 times in HISTORY. While the way the game was won on Wednesday is certainly the most unbelievable event that occurred, the game featured three separate comebacks by the Indians and is without a doubt the biggest (and most improbable...

Indians recall T.J. House, option C.C. Lee

The not-so-dynamic duo of Danny Salazar and Zach McAllister really did a number on the Indians bullpen over the last two nights. In fact, the pen saw so much work that the Tribe made a move to replenish their NINE man bullpen. C.C. Lee is out, and Clipper starter T.J. House is in. Lee has been with the club since April 9th when he took the spot vacated by Vinnie Pestano, who carried...
