Tribe top ‘Stros, celebrate in style

From the first pitch, an 89-mile-per-hour sinker from the hand of the towering Houston Astros starting pitcher Scott Feldman, this Thursday night contest had given off the scent of weirdness. The Cleveland Indians had trouble with the 6-foot-7-inch, right-handed Feldman. The Astros, they had trouble with Danny Salazar, the 24-year-old who barely touches 6-feet. The umpires had trouble...

Oh, Dickerson, We Hardly Knew Ye

As mentioned in the post game report last night, the Indians have demoted Chris Dickerson in what was a very oddly timed move. Dickerson was originally purchased from the Tigers in July to help with outfield depth after injuries to Michael Bourn and Nyjer Morgan really thinned things out. When he initially joined the club, it seemed like he would never cool down, starting out with...
