Duffy, Royals blank cold Tribe offense, 2-0

CLEVELAND—You can’t win if you can’t score. Or can you? For the Indians at least in one game on Monday, they did just that. Making up the suspended game with the Royals originally played at Kaufmann Stadium back on August 31, the Tribe edged their division rivals for a 4-3 win. Needing just three outs in the bottom of the tenth inning, Kansas City squeezed a run across against Scott...

Second Thoughts Game #152: Indians 2, Astros 1

It got to the point where even I was on the verge of ruling this team out in their playoff chase over the weekend. Yet just four days later, here they are once again won three straight to take the four game set in Houston and fight their way back to just four games away from a playoff berth.

Astros mascot Orbit trolls Indians players with 'Famous Stache Wax'

Infamous for his shenanigans with opposing players, Houston Astros mascot "Orbit" took his act to the Cleveland Indians Wednesday night. In honor of the Tribe's "rally 'stache" movement, which began at the end of August, Orbit "grew" one of his own. Apparently now a mustache aficionado, the furry green creature tried to sell the Indians on his...

Alex Avila Bounces Off Backstop To Make Incredible Catch (Video)

Detroit Tigers catcher Alex Avila put a lot of faith in the backstop netting at Comerica Park on Friday night.

Tigers' Alex Avila makes acrobatic catch against Indians

DETROIT -- Alex Avila has a long history of baseball in his family. Judging from the catch he made Friday night, he must also have some ancestors who were circus performers. Mike Aviles popped David Price's 2-2 pitch behind the plate, and it looked like the ball was going to carry out of play. Avila, though, glanced once at the netting, then charged straight at the backstop and...

Indians infield and a goodbye note … While We’re Waiting

On the left side of the Indians infield: What should the plan be for 2015? The big hurdle was first to identify how to solve Asdrubal Cabrera’s free agency. That got solved in the form of Zach Walters. But what’s the plan now? Who should be back? When should prospects be promoted? Is an addition necessary? Lonnie Chisenhall is the incumbent third baseman. He’s one of the worst...

Second Thoughts Game #135: Tigers 12, Indians 1

Run of Great Pitching Runs Out The Indians will need to write this one off. The Indians have gone to the bullpen early over the last month very few times. This time it was Corey Kluber who failed to get through the third inning, as unbelievable as that is to say. The bullpen didn’t fare much better, with the Tigers tacking on runs against Zach McAllister (who actually pitched...

Indians Should Stick with August Upstarts as September Roster Expands

Well, isn’t this a surprise. While it seems like the Cleveland Indians have been here before, it still seems like a shock. Just a month ago after play on July 31, the Indians were 53-55 overall and 6.5 games back in the American League Central Division, stuck in third place. In the two days previous Cleveland had traded Asdrubal Cabrera and Justin Masterson to contenders for young...

Sparkplug Ramirez Helping Indians Offense Go

He might be the right spark at just the right time. Jose Ramirez was quite the spark this past weekend, logging seven hits in the three-game series versus Houston. Seven hits is a good weekend, but a game-winning base hit in the ninth on Saturday and a key, two-out base hit to drive in a run on Sunday makes a great weekend. On the surface, Ramirez’s .235 batting average seems quite...

Comedy of errors as Tribe plays ugliest game of season

CLEVELAND -- When the Indians 2014 highlight film is made, there is only one song that should be the soundtrack. If you grew up watching the "Benny Hill Show", you know it very well. What the Indians have done fielding the baseball and base-running though hasn't been a comedy. It's been a tragedy of errors. The final two innings of Friday's 5-1 loss to the Astros...
