August 2015 Player Power Rankings

Continued mediocrity followed by a six game winning streak to end August has kept the Tribe within play-off limbo. Still too far out to be considered legitimate contenders, but too close to throw in the season. A rash of injuries, including shoulder issues for Kipnis, Carrasco and Brantley, hand and wrist problems for Johnson and Aviles and an illness for Salazar made it difficult...

Indians look for first seven-game win streak of season

The Cleveland Indians stayed hot in their opener in Toronto in large part because they got seven strong innings from a reliable starter. The pitcher the Indians will send to the mound Tuesday night has totaled the same number of innings in his last two starts and struggled against tamer offenses than that of the Blue Jays. Cody Anderson will make his second start after a 19-day stay...

Ball Played: Is it October yet?

The atmosphere along with the game itself would have felt right at home in October. Both the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians were fully engaged from the first pitch through the last out, and so was the extraordinarily loud Rogers Centre. There was great pitching, awesome defensive plays, clutch performances, and, most importantly, a 4-2 Indians win. With the win, the Tribe...

8/31 Recap: Welcome to Toronto, Mark

Player of the Game Danny Salazar was electric tonight, striking out ten in seven innings. The only two runs allowed by the young star were because of his own poor defensive plays (more on that later) as otherwise he shut out one of the best offenses in baseball over the other six. He allowed just six hits and one walk throughout, moving his season strike out total to 172 and his...

What Happened to the Quality Start & Why It Shouldn’t Disappear

In the current war between traditionalists and sabrmetricians, there have been a few casualties. Families have been driven apart by the usefulness of OBP over AVG and severe insults are hurled every day on twitter against and in defense of WAR.

Spring Training Questions About Salazar Have Now Been Answered and Changed

Entering the 2015 season, Danny Salazar was a bit of an enigma and something of a question mark. Such was the case that he opened the year in Triple-A Columbus. Now, there seems to be little question the 25-year-old right hander belongs in Cleveland as he has put forth a very good season to this point and has been absurdly good for a month and a half. As spring training began this...

Bode Plots: The Salazar Paradox

We tend to view fortune in sports in binary terms. This player has been lucky. That player has been unlucky. However, is it possible for a player to both be fortunate and unfortunate at the same time? Such has seemingly been the case with Danny Salazar’s post All-Star break starts, as his sterling 1.76 ERA, seventh best in MLB, stands in contrast to his peripheral numbers and...
