The Cleveland Indians Should Lock Up Corey Kluber Now

Corey Kluber was masterful in 2014, winning the AL Cy Young award The 2014 AL Cy Young winner Corey Kluber was simply masterful for the Cleveland Indians in 2014 and gives the Indians a true ace for the first time since having C.C Sabathia and Cliff Lee. The Indians received solid years from Justin Masterson but he was not a legitimate ace. Corey Kluber is an ace and the...

We’re a few days late on this, but given all of the Tribe talk today, I’m reminded that the ZiPS projections, courtesy of Dan Szymborski over at Baseball Think Factory, for the 2015 Cleveland Indians. With a few key players coming off of disappointing seasons, some other players exceeding expectations, and a few new acquisitions to analyze, highlighting the projections, which...

Chris Sale Finds Another Great Pitch

I’m not sure that we talk about how great Chris Sale is often enough. That’s relatively easily explained, I suppose; after all, with offense down across baseball, there’s more great-looking starting pitchers than ever, and even just within Sale’s division last year we found Corey Kluber, James Shields, Yordano Ventura, Max Scherzer, David Price, Anibal […]

Cleveland Indians: Don’t Sleep On Them Again

This offseason, the AL Central has been one of the most active divisions, from the White Sox making serious moves towards contention, to the Indians working with a limited budget, or the Royals taking chances on a few comeback candidates, and the Twins continuing to invest in starting pitching. Out of all the teams in this crowded division, the Cleveland Indians stand out for a playoff...

Cleveland Indians pitching rotation ranked tenth best

Buster Olney of ESPN is ranking MLB starting rotations as we get closer and closer to pitchers and catchers reporting. The Cleveland Indians staff was really strong in the second half of last season, obviously led by eventual Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. That means that the Tribe’s rotation is decent no matter what, but how top-heavy does the rest of the world consider the Indians’...

Mark Shapiro: “We’re somewhat limited financially”

Cleveland Indians fans looking for a right-handed bat or an upgrade at third base may be waiting for at least another year as the front office appears to be done making any substantial moves.

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...

Fun stats, trends show 2014 was better than some think

The Indians did something this past season they haven't done in 13 years: have back-to-back plus-.500 seasons. Also, everyone knows all about the AL Cy Young award that Corey Kluber won, or the 3rd place AL MVP finish that Michael Brantley netted. However, I'm here to dig a little deeper and show you just how special the 2014 season was for the Indians. In my first piece here at...

My Cleveland Sportsman of the Year: Corey Kluber

The 2014 American League Cy Young award was won on a beautiful July Wednesday at Progressive Field.

Cleveland Indians rumors: Offseason News

The Cleveland Indians may have digressed a tad in the win department from 92 wins in 2013 to 85 wins in 2014, but there still should be a lot of optimism for the 2015 season. The starting rotation boasts the reigning AL CY Young winner in Corey Kluber, along with a young supporting staff that was able to record the 2nd best ERA in the AL in the second half of the year.  Did I say...

It’s time to extend Corey Kluber long-term

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber makes about minimum wage when it comes to paying Major League Baseball players. That’s great for the Tribe now, but soon it will cost the team a lot more, possibly to the point where he couldn’t be afforded, unless action is taken sooner than later. The Indians certainly don’t have to sign pitcher Corey Kluber to a long-term contract...

Did Corey Kluber deserve the AL Cy Young?

Prior to 2007, only Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry won the AL Cy Young while wearing a Cleveland Indians uniform. This past Wednesday, Corey Kluber became the third pitcher for the Tribe in the last eight seasons to take home that honor. Lefties CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee won the award in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Just like with Lee in 2008, Kluber emerging to win the Cy Young was...

Advanced metrics confirm Kluber as the right choice

It’s almost comical looking back at it. In 2010, the Indians acquired Corey Kluber in a three-team deal that sent Jake Westbrook to St. Louis and Ryan Ludwick from the Cardinals to the Padres. San Diego would give the Indians a 24-year old pitcher still trying to navigate through Double-A, and fans and pundits alike weren’t thrilled with the trade from the Indians perspective...
