Darvish working with all Rangers' backstops

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- If we've learned one thing about Yu Darvish in his three years as pitcher for the Texas Rangers is that he grows attached to his catchers. That hasn't been the case though this spring. Darvish has thrown three times in Arizona and had three catchers work with him, with primary starter Robinson Chirinos getting the nod for Darvish's first live batting practice session...

A Deeper Look Into the Indians Corner Infield & DH

With most of the Indians starting positions firmly established, this group of hitters is one of the most interesting going into the 2015 season. Every significant member of the team who played either third base, first base or DH in 2014 is returning for the 2015 (Jason Giambi and Chris Gimenez are the only insignificant players to leave) and added into that mix is the free agent...

Gloves, bats let Tribe down at worst time

Follow me back to a year ago next week. Your Cleveland Indians played the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL Wild Card game. I sat in my regular spot inside of Progressive Field and watched as the offense could do next to nothing against Rays starter Alex Cobb. When they did actually put runners on base, each Tribe hitter seemed to tense up and either get too over-anxious, or swung like they...

Astros mascot Orbit trolls Indians players with 'Famous Stache Wax'

Infamous for his shenanigans with opposing players, Houston Astros mascot "Orbit" took his act to the Cleveland Indians Wednesday night. In honor of the Tribe's "rally 'stache" movement, which began at the end of August, Orbit "grew" one of his own. Apparently now a mustache aficionado, the furry green creature tried to sell the Indians on his own grooming product. Watch as Indians...

8/29 Recap: Indians Ride Mustaches to Victory
