Indians 7 White Sox 4: Bench Bunch delivers again as Tribe takes sixth straight

Every offseason, the Indians brass gets together and tries to piece together a bench that will be able to spell the starters with minimal dropoff. The right combination has seemed to elude Chris Antonetti since he took over as GM in 2011. Last year, the group was constantly in flux with the likes of Aaron Cunningham, Vinny Rottino, Lou Marson, Jose Lopez, etc etc. Doesn’t that...

Box Score: White Sox 9, Indians 0

The Indians (68-94) season has come to a woeful, merciless end. In a game as fitting as possible for this entire season, the White Sox (85-77) poured on 16 hits, led by three homers from backup first baseman Dan Johnson (his first HRs of the season), in a complete thrashing of the Tribe. The next time you see Cleveland baseball, there likely will be plenty of changes to the lineup...

Before Chicago lost for the third time in the four-game series against the Orioles, manager Robin Ventura and general manager Ken Williams got together...

Indians All-Star Break Review: The Infielders

As we do each summer at WFNY when the Cleveland Indians hit the All-Star break, we take a look back at the four facets of the team on the field. There’s been been a lot to talk about with this club. Their 44-41 record is good enough for second in the American League Central, but the team has shown some serious flaws. GM Chris Antonetti continues to tell us that the Indians have...

Proud Canadian Nick Weglarz Relishes Moment in Spotlight for Akron Aeros

Sunday was a special day for Nick Weglarz. No, not just because it marked his 29th game out of 31 in the Akron Aeros starting lineup. And not only because he just finished one of the best months of his career. But Sunday, July 1, was Canada Day. And for the 24-year-old and only Canadian on the Aeros team, that meant a special observance at Akron’s Canal Park. Before the afternoon...

Indians Weekend Wrapup: Defying The Odds

I swear I will never be able to figure out this particular Indians club. They entered Baltimore on a five-game losing streak, looking as bad as they have all season. The offense couldn’t score in Amsterdam’s Red Light District with a fist full of hundreds, and the pitching had become extremely suspect. It was (and still is) danger time for our Wahoos. Scheduled to face three...
