10/4 Recap: Indians Finish Strong With Sweep

Player of the Game Jesus Aguilar’s two hit performance earns him POG. Nice end to a season that likely didn’t go the way he’d hoped. Feathers Up Roberto Perez got the Tribe started in the second with a double down the left field line, he would later come around to score on a Giovanny Urshela single. The Indians got back on the board in the 3rd when a wild throw to first...

10/1 Recap: Bauer Ends Season on High Note, But Defense Blows It

Bode Plots: Which type of contact is affecting Indians batters the most?

With the Cleveland Indians continuing their struggles hitting with RISP1 , there has been an added emphasis among analysts and fans to uncover how much of their struggles are luck versus skill. In particular, there has been an emphasis on the amount of hard hit balls. However, there is a possibility that focus is on the wrong set of data, and that we should instead be looking at...

The Mariners terrible, horrible, no good, very bad catchers

To say Seattle Mariners catchers have been “abysmal” is disrespectful to the word abysmal. Just how bad have Mariners backstops been? The club’s collective catchers are batting .150. The Mets (.176), Reds (.174), Giants (.165) and Nationals (.160) pitching staffs (> 100+ plate appearances) all have better averages at the plate. That’s horrendous. Seattle hoped 24...

Ball Played: Indians literally drop the ball

Sometimes, one play can summarize a larger facet of a season. No single play can ultimately change an entire season especially in the third of a six month season. One play, however, can certainly serve as a symbol for what has occurred during said season. In 2014, the defensive struggles of the entire season for the Cleveland Indians were symbolized by the “Raburn Spike.” On...

Ball Played: Tigers continue mastery over Indians

The missing ingredient for the Cleveland Indians offense is often said to be a right-handed power bat. Perhaps a hitter capable of knocking around 50 extra base hits while winning a Silver Slugger Award would give them the necessary boost. Of course, the 2015 Indians expected to have such a hitter in their lineup, but catcher Yan Gomes has battled a slow start and multiple injuries...

How to Score More; Clutch Hits or Walks?

It has been a matter of debate among Indians fans, particularly those writers who speak on the Tribe Time Now network of podcasts, why the Indians had trouble scoring runs early in the season. On one side, they weren’t getting hits with runners in scoring position. On the other, they weren’t getting many runners in scoring position. This is a solid old school versus new school...

The Cleveland Indians came into the 2015 season supposedly offensively superior to the Kansas City Royals, especially when considering power hitting.
