Today we continue the IBI’s year-end awards with the announcement of the Pitcher of the Year. This award goes to the starting pitcher in the Indians organization that had the best year from a performance perspective, not necessarily from a prospect standing. Last year, right-handerDanny Salazar won this award and the year before that Corey Kluber won it, so there has been some...

The 2015 AL Central Winners: Cleveland Indians

I’m getting a little jumpy here, but I’m excited for Cleveland Indians fans for next year. After making the wildcard play-in game last year, the Indians had a a small letdown this year. A good thing that did come out of the 2014 season is the Indians look poised to win the AL Central next year. The Tigers will obviously be the favorites coming into the season, but I would push...

Eight reasons 2014 was not a lost season for the Indians

The Indians missed the playoffs but all was not lost this past season for the Indians. Here are eight reasons why this season was a productive one for the team: 1. Corey Kluber is a legitimate top of the rotation ace. Just take a look at these incredible numbers in what should be a Cy Young Award winning season: 18-9 record, 2.44 ERA, 269 strikeouts, 1.09 WHIP and in 235.2 innings...

Ranking the 2014 year-end roster: Part two

The 2014 season may have ended with some disappointment with Cleveland missing the playoffs, but finishing with an 85-77 record and being in contention until the last weekend of the season is not all that bad. Before looking forward to 2015, first IBI is going to look back on 2014. Personally, that starts for me with these roster rankings before transitioning to the IBI Awards next...

Today In Tribe History: October 2, 2013

The Cleveland Indians return to the postseason for the first time since 2007 and host the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Wild Card Game at Progressive Field. Despite getting nine hits off of Rays pitching, the Indians cannot get a runner across home plate and lose 4-0, ending their season. Delmon Young’s leadoff home run in the third will be the only run the Rays would need...

Did Cleveland’s Defense Sabotage Danny Salazar’s Start?

Among the points one is compelled to make when arguing on behalf of Corey Kluber‘s candidacy for this year’s Cy Young award is that the defense behind him has been of suspect quality, leading to an inflated BABIP (.316) and higher ERA (68 ERA-) than his main rival for the distinction, Felix Hernandez (63 ERA-).

Indians slip with season on the brink

What more is there to say? The Cleveland Indians had their chance to make the playoff run the way they did last year. It was all there in front of them. Four games with the Kansas City Royals. Make or break. Do or die. Win or go home. Throw all the clichés you want out there, but the Wahoos just needed to win out. Monday night’s scheduled game was a winnable affair that was stymied...

Second Thoughts Game #158: Royals 7, Indians 1

The Cleveland Indians (82-76) were denied a must-win game by a lopsided 7-1 score at the hands of the Kansas City Royals (86-71) at Progressive Field on Tuesday night. Danny Salazar (6-8, 4.25) was tagged with five runs in 4.2 innings, allowing his final five batters to reach base in a back-breaking three run fifth inning and it all happened with two outs. He was effective through...

Royals pummel Danny Salazar, Cleveland 7 - 1

For three innings, Tuesday's game looked to be a low-scoring affair. Cleveland sent Danny Salazar to the mound and he plowed through the Royals in dominant fashion, recording each of his first six outs by way of the strikeout. In each of the first two innings a Royal batsman got on base, but each time it came in the form of an infield single. Norichika Aoki took a Salazar offering...

Salazar struggles and offensive woes send Royals over Indians, 7-1

CLEVELAND—It was there for the taking. For a team that has clawed their way through a roller coaster of ups and downs all season, the ride just about came to a slow halt for the Indians Tuesday night. Offensive struggles continued and any hopes of a shot at October baseball were all but shattered, as the Tribe scampered to a 7-1 loss against Kansas City. “We didn’t win which...

9/23 Recap: Offense Absent As Magic Number Drops to One

Player of the Game By actually throwing a scoreless inning, Austin Adams is tonight’s player of the game. No other pitcher threw at least a full inning on the night without a run being scored and Adams threw 1.2. The one base runner he did allow was eliminated with a double play. This was Adams first Player of the Game of the year. Feathers Up Danny Salazar put up identical innings...

Ventura Blazes By Tribe; Royals 7, Indians 1

Danny Salazar and Yordano Ventura could match up against one another for several years to come while the Indians and Royals battle for the Central Division. But for now, it’s Ventura and the Royals who rein supreme over the Tribe and Salazar. Tuesday night Kansas City likely drove the final nail into Cleveland’s postseason coffin with a 7-1 win at Progressive Field behind a pair...

The Tribe is alive, but next year they will thrive (Part 1)

Fans of the Cleveland Indians are surely disappointed as the team stumbled mightily in the first two weeks of September, a month which proved so successful for them in last season’s torrid sprint to the playoffs. While the Tribe is still mathematically alive, their failure to take advantage of tremendous starting pitching has cost them a great opportunity to make the playoffs in...

Tribe top ‘Stros, celebrate in style

From the first pitch, an 89-mile-per-hour sinker from the hand of the towering Houston Astros starting pitcher Scott Feldman, this Thursday night contest had given off the scent of weirdness. The Cleveland Indians had trouble with the 6-foot-7-inch, right-handed Feldman. The Astros, they had trouble with Danny Salazar, the 24-year-old who barely touches 6-feet. The umpires had trouble...

Second Thoughts Game #152: Indians 2, Astros 1

It got to the point where even I was on the verge of ruling this team out in their playoff chase over the weekend. Yet just four days later, here they are once again won three straight to take the four game set in Houston and fight their way back to just four games away from a playoff berth. Unfortunately, time is not on their side as they have only 10 games left to work with. However...

2015′s breakout team: the Cleveland Indians

For whatever reason, Cleveland seems to be the place to be for late 20’s breakouts from starting pitchers. Cliff Lee set the tone for the Indians a few years back, and this year, Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco have followed in his footsteps. It is unfortunate for the Indians that Carrasco’s dominance, along with Danny Salazar’s resurgence, occurred so late in the season....

Lobstein looks to build on first big league win Saturday

While Danny Salazar turned in arguably the worst start of his career his previous time out, he was at his best against the Detroit Tigers last week.
