Versatility is the Key

The Indians have a problem. Well, they have many problems, but one can be spotted and rectified fairly easily. Despite officially having five outfielders on the roster (not including Brandon Moss, who has played nine of his twelve games in right field), the Indians have been forced to use an infielder, Mike Aviles, in the outfield for a total of 38.1 innings across six games. While...

Daily Fantasy Sports Advice: April 20th

As is customary for most Mondays in MLB, many teams have an off day to travel so there is not a full slate of games. There are nine games in total but with the Red Sox and Orioles playing at 11:05 EST, I do not recommend entering into any all day contests as all the other games start at 7:05 or later. There could be some trouble with rain in the forecast at PNC Park so plan for a...

Player of the Game The player least expected to be so was the hero today as Jerry Sands went from unknown to hero in a single day.

Despite facing David Price, Sands had hits in...

Roster Update: Prior to tonight’s game, Jerry Sands was added to the Indians 25 man roster to give the team some extra bench depth.
