Sox 99 – Brawl Game

Would two outfield brawls rouse the Sox out of their slump? It appeared that way after the Townies, who had dropped 7 of 9, rebounded with two wins against the Central Division-leading Indians. The first melee erupted when Cleveland starter Jaret Wright hit Darren Lewis in the shoulder in the fifth as the Sox attempted to rally from a 5-1 deficit. Wright and Lewis tangled, though...

Like ’97, Tribe turns to the kid

In April of this season, 95% of Indians fans had no idea who Danny Salazar was. By May, he was starting to make some waves in AA Akron, making seven starts and posting an ERA of 2.67 with 51 strikeouts in 33.2 innings pitched. In June, he was a rotation mainstay in Columbus, making starts mostly of the five inning variety, by design after his Tommy John surgery two years ago. Again...

Believing Conventional Wisdom Isn’t Always Wise

An old axiom is that it’s not always wise to believe “conventional wisdom”.  This is certainly accurate when applied to the 2013 edition of the Cleveland Indians. Starting with the hot-stove period over the seemingly endless winter, and throughout the spring, nearly all of the beat writers, baseball pundits, and sports radio personalities were lukewarm about the Tribe’s...

WFNY Stats & Info: Indians’ struggles against Yankees

As today’s game looks woeful at the start, I felt it was appropriate to look into the Cleveland Indians’ recent record against the New York Yankees. Heck, TD practically begged me to do this research with his recap this morning. So here are the results over the last 20 regular seasons since 1994, the opening of Jacobs Field, through yesterday: 57-111 (.329) record for Cleveland...

Dugout Digest - Rocky Mountain...low?

I think you can safely say that in regards to the Colorado Rockies, the other shoe has dropped. One day after Shelby Miller set down 27 in a row against them, Adam Wainwright threw a two-hit shutout against Colorado, pitching 7 1/3 hitless innings to start the game. Since topping out at 13-4 on April 20th, the Rockies are 6-13 as their schedule has gotten tougher. They've won...
