Second Thoughts Game #125: Indians 5, Twins 0

Momentum Starting to Build? The Indians are in the midst of an important nine game stretch of games. So many times this season the team has followed an emotional high (Tuesday’s comeback win) with a letdown. That wasn’t the case in this game. The Indians did everything right. T.J. House pitched well, and the offense gave him more than enough help for the team to take their...

Second Thoughts: The kids are alright

While it gives me a chance to quote one of my favorite bands of all time, The Who, there is truth in saying "the kids are alright" for the Indians this season. The Tribe now has a strong rookie contingent on their major league roster due to injuries and trades and it's starting to pay off. Newcomer Zach Walters made his presence known in Cleveland with a walk-off home...

Manager Terry Francona said before the game that Gomes is still experiencing some neck stiffness that started to develop during Friday's game. Gomes was taken out midway through that contest as Francona emptied the bench with a 10-run lead...

Indians clubhouse unfazed as trade deadline approaches

CLEVELAND -- Asdrubal Cabrera was trading jokes with Roberto Perez, Justin Masterson was discussing his next start and Terry Francona was on his usual even keel. If anyone in the Indians clubhouse was feeling stressed with the trade deadline two days away, they weren't showing it. "I've been on ballclubs where everyone takes a deep breath when the day is over whether...

Indians 3, Twins 4: It smelled funny from the start

8:29 PM – We join our heroes in Minneapolis, during the top of the second inning after an uneventful first. Much has been made in the booth of the fact that this is the Indians’ first trip back to Target Field since clinching their 2013 playoff spot.  That is somewhat hard to believe.  I find it much easier to believe that Roberto Perez just grounded into an inning-ending double...

House, recalled Monday afternoon from Columbus, took the mound for the Tribe against LHP Twin Kris Johnson. Both sides were retired in order to start the game. Ryan Raburn, playing left field, had the...

Ranking the 2014 roster at the All-Star Break, part two

There have been plenty of ups and downs for Cleveland so far in 2014, yet the team is entering the All-Star break at a perfectly average 47-47. There have been a few notable breakout stars and players performing above their true talent, but given the number of disappointments Cleveland's gone through, .500 actually feels pretty good right now.

Getting to Know Roberto Perez

Burning River Baseball recognized Robert Perez (@robebo23 on twitter) as one of the Indians top prospects back in April, mentioning then that he was likely to be the Tribe’s best bet at back-up catcher this year, but most fans are likely just hearing about Perez for the first time after he was called up earlier this week. After making the most of his first career start, with a...

Second Thoughts Game #91: Yankees 3, Indians 9

It wasn't quite as dramatic as Jason Giambi sending Progressive Field into a frenzy with a walk-off home run last September, but the RBI triple laced down the right field line by Asdrubal Cabrera which ended up clearing the bases definitely ignited a certain amount of euphoria in downtown Cleveland on Thursday night as the once-hapless Tribe offense roared back to life to stun...

Indians 9, Yankees 3: Two games in one, Perez has the most fun

I was all set to have this one written. My main topics were going to be how the Indians defense, easily the worst in baseball, just continues to let the team down and cost them runs the offense usually cannot get back. I was also going to go in on the bats who once again turned a below average starter into Cy Freaking Young. Then came the seventh inning, or should I say the start...

Cleveland Indians rally late to beat New York Yankees, 9-3

Don't be surprised if there's a run on Asdrubal Cabrera's bats over the next few days among his teammates. There seems to be magic in that wood. Cabrera hit a three-run triple and Roberto Perez, using one of Cabrera's bats, hit a two-run homer in his big league debut Thursday night as the Indians rallied late to beat the Yankees, 9-3, and split a four-game series...

Newbies Perez, Dickerson generating unexpected spark to Tribe lineup

CLEVELAND -- One injury can create a domino effect that ripples across not just a lineup but the entire roster. When Michael Bourn was placed on the 15-day disabled list last Sunday, Chris Dickerson was part of the Pirates organization in Triple-A Indianapolis and Roberto Perez was in Columbus. Both played pivotal roles in the Indians' 9-3 win over the Yankees on Thursday at...

Rookie Perez homers to cap Indians route over Yankees, 9-3

CLEVELAND—Roberto Perez will remember Thursday night for the rest of his life. Making his Major League debut, the 25 year-old catcher’s dream came true in front of his very eyes. Leading New York 4-3 in the eighth, Indians bats exploded for five runs in the inning, capped off by Perez’s first big league home run.

Indians rally for series split with Yankees

If you flipped off your television or turned off the radio because of the first six innings of Thursday’s Indians game, you missed a whole lot. It looked like the Indians were headed for a rather dull loss to the New York Yankees, which would give the Yankees the win in the four-game series. Then, Asdrubal Cabrera happened. The Indians were trailing the Yankees 3-0 before Cabrera...

With the Indians needing a backup catcher, Perez was called up from Columbus on Tuesday. Perez was having a breakthrough year with the Clippers less than a year after suffering from Bell's Palsy, which is a sudden weakness or paralysis...

Indians News: Masterson to the DL, Hagadone, Perez Up, Holt down

Well, we finally have our answer. Justin Masterson, who has struggled terribly all season long, has been placed on the 15-day DL with right knee inflammation. The knee may be bothering him, but it is clearly a mental issue. In his last 11 starts, the Indians’ Opening Day starter has turned into one of the worst in baseball, posting a 7.16 ERA in 49 innings, giving up 60 hits and...
