Next Up: Indians vs. Reds at home

After the Cleveland Indians’ successful seven-game road trip to Arlington and Chicago from May 15 to May 21, the Sports Cynics Club might be looking for the darker hidden meaning of it all, but let us not be tempted to turn the Tribe’s growing success against left-handed starters into a left-handed compliment. On the trip just ended they faced five southpaw starters and went...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, May 22

The boom-or-bust Brewers busted in Atlanta, which is always a very distinct possibility, but starter Danny Salazar came through as expected and I got a big payoff from a switch I made after lineups came out, subbing in Mike Aviles for Jose Ramirez. Originally I had Ramirez in there as he’d been batting second in Carlos Santana’s absence, but with Santana reappearing in Cleveland’s...

C-Cap Recap: That’s Called a Winning Streak

Had this game been played in Cleveland, one could only assume they would have dropped confetti from the upper deck. The Indians have won three in a row! It’s their first such string of the entire season, but more importantly, the low-stress 5-2 win over the White Sox Thursday night gave the Tribe an honest-to-gosh series win against a divisional foe (they had been 0-7-1 in such...

Carlos Santana; All Around The Diamond

It is no secret the Cleveland Indians’ manager Terry Francona loves versatility on his team. Tito prefers players like Mike Aviles and Jose Ramirez that can play multiple positions without skipping a beat.

Ball Played: Defense, bullpen, and score all favored Royals

Corey Kluber entered the night with 495 career strikeouts and it was largely expected that he would record number 500 on Monday night. The Kansas City Royals are the most difficult team in MLB to strike out, however, and it took Corey until the sixth inning to achieve that 500th strikeout when he froze Lorenzo Cain. Unfortunately, even that moment of triumph was brief as three batters...

Versatility is the Key

The Indians have a problem. Well, they have many problems, but one can be spotted and rectified fairly easily. Despite officially having five outfielders on the roster (not including Brandon Moss, who has played nine of his twelve games in right field), the Indians have been forced to use an infielder, Mike Aviles, in the outfield for a total of 38.1 innings across six games.
