The Cleveland Indians are back

T hey are back. They are right in the thick of it. And they aren’t going anywhere. Your Cleveland Indians, left for dead by almost everyone, continue to win and are surging into September. Their best month of the season came at the right time. The Wahoos were 16-9 and were three outs away from being 17-9 before mother nature took over in Kansas City. All of a sudden, a team that...

Dugout Digest – burn the National League to the ground

The National League is a mess. It’s a complete and utter mess. Tomorrow, we’re going to enter the final month of the 2014 season, and we still don’t know much of anything in the Senior Circuit. Well, I’ll say this with some degree of confidence – the Nationals will win the NL East. But aside from that? It’s a crap shoot. The Brewers only have a one game lead over the...

Collective effort at the plate, on the mound gives Cleveland Indians 6-1 win in series opener against the Royals

This is what the Indians have wanted. It's what they have aimed for all year. Despite a season defined, to this point, by inconsistency and shortcomings in all phases of the game, the Indians are playing meaningful contests against teams that sit ahead of them in the standings. The schedule now grants them an opportunity to narrow their deficit in both the division and Wild...

Second Thoughts Game #131: Chicago 3, Cleveland 2

After more dramatics from Zach Walters on Tuesday, Corey Kluber took the mound on Wednesday in a game where the Indians were the heavy favorites. The White Sox were losers of seven straight and 14 of their last 18. Meanwhile, the Indians had their ace on the mound, had won three straight, and were facing a pitcher they’d hit well all season.  It didn’t matter.  Kluber gave...

Indians 8, White Sox 6: Bunt, Force, Trauma

8:06 PM – I crunched some numbers earlier today that suggested the Indians need to shoot for at least 90 wins if they want to make the playoffs.  I don’t know why I did that work, because you could probably just have hit a corpse on the nose with a ball-peen hammer before the season and have concluded largely the same thing.  Nevertheless, to win 90 games the Indians need to...

Player of the Game Forgoing the sacrifice bunt with two strikes, Zach Walters hit his sixth home run as an Indian to give the Tribe the lead in the tenth inning. The bunt was on for the beginning of the bat, with Lonnie Chisenhall on second after a double, but once the count reached 2-2, Walters was able to swing away and gave the Indians a two run lead with the blast to deep right...

Second Thoughts Game #119-120: Indians split doubleheader

Indians Walk-Off Again In game one of the doubleheader Zach Walters hit the Indians’ sixth walk off home run of the season, the most in the majors. In the process he showed everyone exactly why they acquired him two weeks ago. With his power, Walters has the ability to be a difference maker in the Indians’ lineup. When he was acquired I was hopeful that Walters was a player...

Tribe falls in extras to split twin bill: Diamondbacks 1, Indians 0, 12 innings

Not only were fans treated to a true doubleheader – buy one ticket, see two games – Wednesday, but the twin bill finished with some bonus baseball. But while Tribe starter Josh Tomlin and the Indians bullpen combined to give up one run to the Diamondbacks in 12 innings, the Indians offense couldn’t push one across as the Tribe lost 1-0 for the twin bill and series split. The...

Defense Allows Cincinnati to Run by Tribe; Reds 4, Indians 0

Finding good, Indians starting pitching has been tough this season. The Indians found a good start from T.J. House, however, they didn’t support it with solid defense or timely hitting. Instead, Homer Bailey set down the Tribe while Cincinnati took advantage of defensive miscues and made the most of timely hitting to win 4-0. The victory gives the Reds a win in the four-game series...

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...

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.

On Wednesday night, he did the exact same thing…while talking about the very...
