Q and A with Johnny Goryl

Probably the most fascinating person in the entire Cleveland Indians organization to talk to is Johnny Goryl. He is not a Hall of Famer and never was an All Star. He only played in 276 Major League games over six seasons and was just a career .225 hitter. But Goryl played in an era that had the likes of Mickey Mantle, Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax and so many other stars...

Deadspin Gives us Baseball Heckling Stories

This here is Bubba Trammell. He had a forgettable career, and he’s been long forgotten by you. He headlines this post because we spent one day in right field in Cincinnati getting the better of Bubba Trammell. Heckling was such an adolescent thing to do. And the insults were so immature, I wonder now as an adult why Trammell paid an idiot like me (then 16 years old) any mind at...

Tribe Happenings: The Indians are the ultimate "team"

Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… The Ultimate Team In our Tuesday morning Second Thoughts piece the IBI’s Kevin Dean asked who the Indians’ MVP is this season. As expected, the responses were all over the place. This is of no surprise because this team truly does not have an MVP. There has been no guy that carried the team on their back all season. That...

A tale of two moments at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario

It was a tale of two cities here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario on a cool and crisp Tuesday night, or should I say, a tale of two players. "It was the best of times…” for the Cleveland Indians’ designated hitter Jason Giambi, who launched a two-run homer into the September night sky, sending the Lake Erie Warriors home winners in a game that looked to have gotten...

Pluto: Discussing Internal Bullpen Options For The Second Half

In his weekly Sunday morning column, The Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto talked about some options internally for the Indians troubled bullpen in the second half from both sides. The Indians are looking at Clay Rapada (1-0, 2.78) at Columbus as a possible reliever. He was 3-0 with a 2.82 ERA in the majors last season with the Yankees. He’s a side-arming lefty who has been effective...

You Forget How Close They Came

I know Cleveland has often been the subject of my ridicule – and it’s deserved. But there was a time in my life when I dabbled in Cleveland Indians baseball. Admittedly, as an early teenager it was hard not to get sucked into the 1996-2000 Cleveland Indians. I studied tape of Manny Ramirez’s swing and tried to model my offensive approach after him; hitting to all fields. Plus...

Nostalgia League: The Search for the Greatest Indians Team

Greatest Indians Team It was June 20, 1971, Father's Day,  Bat Day,  and my birthday.   That was the day that my father took me to see my first game.   The Indians swept the Tigers in a double header and I was hooked.  Between that day in 1971 and 1993, I could never say that I saw one of the greatest Indians teams play.   That all changed in 1995 when Mike Hargrove took...
