One Through Nine, One Game At A Time

The Indians once had a manager who made the team’s mantra for one season “one through nine, one game at a time.” That manager would have loved the current incarnation of the Indians offense. Unlike his offense from 2003 through 2009, the Indians don’t depend on one or two players who were expected to hit 30 home runs and knock in 100 runs every year. Since players like that...

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...

Clean baseball: Tribe's success in second half lies within their own hands, literally

DETROIT -- When it comes to the one area where the Indians have to make a major improvement in the second half, the opinion is unanimous -- they have to be better defensively. Going into Friday night's game against the Tigers, the Tribe lead the Majors with 76 errors, which is five more than Arizona. Yan Gomes (11) and Asdrubal Cabrera (14) lead their respective positions in...

Indians 9, Yankees 3: Two games in one, Perez has the most fun

I was all set to have this one written. My main topics were going to be how the Indians defense, easily the worst in baseball, just continues to let the team down and cost them runs the offense usually cannot get back. I was also going to go in on the bats who once again turned a below average starter into Cy Freaking Young. Then came the seventh inning, or should I say the start...

Newbies Perez, Dickerson generating unexpected spark to Tribe lineup

CLEVELAND -- One injury can create a domino effect that ripples across not just a lineup but the entire roster. When Michael Bourn was placed on the 15-day disabled list last Sunday, Chris Dickerson was part of the Pirates organization in Triple-A Indianapolis and Roberto Perez was in Columbus. Both played pivotal roles in the Indians' 9-3 win over the Yankees on Thursday at...

This more of an interesting note than a legitimately big deal, but it is nice to see the Bucs finally get one of those. They made...
