Mike Pelfrey has some weird habits on the mound. The guys licks himself incessantly and was counted licking himself 89 times during a 2011 start. And when he’s not licking himself or the ball or his hand or whatever, he’s making funny motions with his lips. Is that how he settles himself down? It didn’t […]

With the first week of the regular season at a close, the Minnesota Twins have already begun to struggle.

It seems that either starting pitchers run...
The Indians played the Minnesota Twins in the first of a three-game series Friday at Progressive Field. Here is a capsule look from The Plain Dealer reporter Dennis Manoloff, who filed from the DMan Cave in Northeast Ohio after watching the SportsTime Ohio telecast:
Opponent: Minnesota Twins.
Location: Progressive Field.
Result: Indians 7, Twins 2.
Few athletes enjoy playing for Cleveland more than Nick Swisher. The Columbus, Ohio, native is a huge fan of the Buckeyes and the Buckeye state, and he made sure to represent after clubbing his first home run of the season Friday. After hitting a 2-run shot off Mike Pelfrey, Swisher did an O-H-I-O spellout for […]
CLEVELAND -- Happy Bropening Day, indeed.
For five innings, I was wondering if Mike Pelfrey was going to do what Randy Johnson couldn't 20 years ago -- pitch a no-hitter against the Indians in their home opener. Carlos Santana's double to lead off the fifth squashed those hopes. Then in the sixth, they got to Pelfrey and took the lead.
The one who delivered the game-winning...
CLEVELAND—There’s no place like home.
Back at Progressive Field for the first time in over six months, the Indians wouldn’t let a few raindrops get in the way of Cleveland’s most unofficial holiday.

Friday’s home opener in Cleveland was a big waiting game for all involved.
After a rain delay bumped the 3:05 p.m. scheduled start time to after 5:00 p.m., the Indians and Twins were finally able to play baseball. High winds and dropping temperatures didn’t make for great baseball, but baseball in Cleveland...
CLEVELAND -- Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning, two batters after Yan Gomes connected for a solo shot, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 7-2 home-opening win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday.

Heading into their Friday home opener against the Minnesota Twins, the Cleveland Indians escaped their three-game series to open the season against Oakland with two wins. In all honesty, the team should probably be 0-3 right now, but their flare for the dramatic from last season has seemingly carried over into 2014—as the Indians got to Athletics reliever, Jim Johnson, for two...

This was hilarious…
Pelfrey starred on the mound at Wichita State before being selected in the first round of the 2005 draft by the New York Mets.
That’s payback for all the times you gave us heartburn, Mike!
The Minnesota Twins decided to have a little fun with starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey earlier in camp. Pelfrey, a Kansas native who attended Wichita State, is a big Shockers fan and has basketball season tickets -- making him a prime target for a prank.
Mike Pelfrey spent several years in Queens as a member of my beloved Mets. As much as he often pained me with his on-field performance, he was always a stand-up guy. Pelfrey is now a member of the Minnesota Twins and pitched his college days at Wichita State. He’s a big Shockers backer. So, his teammates decided to take advantage of Big Pelf, who is generally fairly quiet and reserved...

Minnesota Twins pitcher and Wichita State alum Mike Pelfrey was probably pretty bummed to watch his beloved Shockers lose to the Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament, ending their undefeated season and run at a National Championship. He’s probably even more bummed because his manager, Ron Gardenhire, and teammate Glen Perkins decided to play a pretty hilarious prank on him...

Gardenhire called Pelfrey, a Wichita State alum, into his office to give the Shockers’ basketball team a pep talk over the phone before their game against Kentucky in the Sweet 16. However, Gregg Marshall and co...
