Nick Hagadone And Recapturing The Magic

The Brewers have brought in a boatload of starting pitching reinforcement as of late. Adrian Houser and Josh Hader came over in the Carlos Gomez trade; Zach Davies arrived in exchange for Gerardo Parra; and Jean Segura helped them acquire Chase Anderson. At the same time, the bullpen hasn’t really received many upgrades, probably because it performed so well in 2015. Will Smith...

MLB Hot Stove: Indians acquire Cowgill, DFA Hagadone

No, the Cleveland Indians didn’t sign David Price. And no, they aren’t adding Yasil Puig. But fear not: They have added a right-handed bat and corner outfielder to their roster when they acquired the rights to Collin Cowgill from the Los Angeles Angels for cash considerations on Wednesday night. The Indians also agreed to a one-year, one million dollar contract with Cowgill...

Looking Back: Cleveland Comes Up Short of a Combined No-No

Maybe the Astros knew in April that they were a team destined for the postseason for the first time since 2005. The Cleveland Indians did not treat them that way when the club went into Houston to open the 2015 season and nearly notched a no-hitter in the third game of the season. On April 9th, the Indians sent Trevor Bauer to the mound for his first start of the season against Astros...

Bullpen Help Would be a Welcomed Relief

As I write this article, I’m going to try extremely hard to look at the positive and not make this a censured piece about the Indians bullpen, but the inconsistencies in 2015 were too many to ignore. The Tribe’s ‘pen heading into the season was supposed to be a strength with young closer Cody Allen heading into his prime, steady Bryan Shaw, Scott Atchison and Marc Rzepczynski...

How Will The Tribe’s Expanded Roster Look?

On Tuesday, September 1, the MLB roster capacity will expand from 25 to 40. This will give the Indians, and every other major league baseball team, the ability to add to their active roster. As it sits right now, the Indians have 41 men listed on their 40 man roster. However, because Gavin Floyd and Nick Hagadone are on the team’s 60-Day disabled list, they do not count against...

Could Any of this Year’s Trades Turn Into Steals of the Past?

The trade deadline has come and gone, and the Indians have said goodbye to two of the nicest players on their team. Sure, personality does not a great ball player make, but it’s still said to see well-liked players go. However, the remainder of this season and the unfolding of seasons to come will show if the moves made this will have a significant affect on the Indians organization...

Burning River Infirmary: Nick Hagadone Would Rather Have a Bad Back

The All-Star break was not quite over when the Indians received devastating news: Lefty Nick Hagadone will be done for the season after breaking a bone in his elbow in a rehab appearance with Mahoning Valley on Wednesday (7/15). This was not a typical pitching elbow injury, although there was another recent example as Gavin Floyd had the same issue. Officially, it was a fracture...

Things Turning Around for the Indians Bullpen

It’s no secret that this season has not gone according to the plan that the Cleveland Indians, and much of the sports world had thus far.

Over the past couple of seasons, one of the most consistent areas of the Indians has been the bullpen. While bullpens do tend...

Tribe on the wrong side of history in loss to Cubs

Don’t let the score fool you. Just because Chicago drubbed Cleveland to the tune of 17-0 doesn’t mean these two cities were locked in to a game of football.
