Stories from the Past: Q&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...

Coming Home – LeBron And The Soul Of Cleveland

Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a kid from Northeast Ohio. It’s where I walked. It’s where I ran. It’s where I cried. It’s where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I’m their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. I want to give them hope when I can. I want...

Historical Comparisons for Hypothetical Lee Trade

A Lee trade would be one of the first of its kind. Ah, do you feel that? The trade wins are a blowin’. Fresh off a rehab start cut short by rain, Cliff Lee‘s name has begun to pop up in hypothetical trade scenarios. Lee’s value is clouded by all sorts of variables: is his elbow OK? How much money will the Phillies eat? He has been traded as an elite starting pitcher three times...

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...

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...
