Second Thoughts Game #139: White Sox 1, Indians 2

Pitch Framing: Macroscope and Microscope It was in response to a 2013 breakout season that Cleveland pressed to extend Yan Gomes to a long-term contract. After a largely-unheralded career through 2012, Gomes shattered all expectations, with a .294/.345/.481 triple slash line and near-elite catcher arm and plate-blocking ability. A less-discussed breakout, however, was Gomes'...

Storm Suspends Tribe Just 3 Outs from Win; Indians 4, Royals 2

In the words of Bull Durham, “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose and sometimes it rains. That’s baseball.” The Indians were working on the first, when the latter interrupted their plans. For the second consecutive inning the Indians were three outs away from completing the three-game sweep and winning 4-2 in 10 innings when heavy rains forced the game to be suspended without...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Its all about the pitching

September is just about here. Time is running short for our Wahoos, but they refuse to give into the fight. (Eric Wedge would be so proud.) With their schedule in Soft Mode, the Tribe had to take advantage of what was in front of them. They started their nine-game stretch with three of the AL’s worst teams by taking two of three from the Minnesota Twins. Up next was a trip home...

Second Thoughts Game #129: Astros 1, Indians 3

It was a beautiful day at Progressive Field as the Columbus Clippers....I mean the Cleveland Indians....defeated the Astros 3-1 to clinch the series win. One would think the Tribe's AAA affiliate was on the field, though, with five of the nine players taking the field on Sunday having seen playing time in Columbus at some point this season. The kids made their presence known...

Columbus Kids Contributing for Cleveland

When injuries mount on the big league roster, who do the Cleveland Indians call? The Columbus Clippers. The Clippers have answered that call throughout the year, as is their job. Despite an ever-changing roster, they lead the International League’s West Division by five games with a 73-62 record after Saturday night’s loss to Indianapolis. The Indians, meanwhile, are 65-63 and...

Holt and Ramirez Provide Late Inning Heroics; Indians 3, Astros 2

The Indians have been looking for a spark in their offense to keep them going in the second half of the season, and they’ve found it in the youngsters from Columbus. Tyler Holt led late inning rally who was then bunted over by Roberto Perez and then scored in walk off fashion by Jose Ramirez. This was the Indians tenth walk off of the season. The Indians are battered and bruised...

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...

Indians defensive errors give Houston a late 5-1 victory

CLEVELAND—The Indians have 99 problems, and all of them are errors. Knotted in a 1-1 tie with Houston in the ninth, two critical defensive errors by the Tribe cost them the series opener. Held to just one run on two hits all night, the Astros went onto score four runs in the inning, leading to a 5-1 victory. “That’s not the way we certainly want to play the game,” manager Terry...

Singleton, Astros defeat sloppy Indians

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jon Singleton's homer capped a four-run ninth inning and the Houston Astros took advantage of Cleveland's sloppy defense to defeat the Indians 5-1 on Friday night. Singleton hit a three-run drive off Cody Allen (4-3) after a pair of throwing errors by the worst defensive team in the majors. Catcher Roberto Perez's wild throw let the go-ahead run score...

8/22 Recap: Indians & Astros Trade Errors in Ugly Game

Player of the Game Carlos Carrasco allowed a run this time around, making this start less impressive than his last two, but still pretty good. The only run of the game scored against Carrasco came on a solo home run by Marwin Gonzalez. For the rest of the six innings he threw, he allowed just one other hit, a single and walked two batters while striking out eight. He was not eligible...

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...

Sore neck results in extra day off for Gomes

CLEVELAND -- Roberto Perez gets his second straight start at catcher as the Indians wrap up a three-game series against the Rangers today. 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.

Second Thoughts Game #99: Indians 3, Twins 4

This was a winnable game that ended with an unfavorable result. With each win of increasing importance, it’s a disappointing start to a three game series against the Minnesota Twins team that was just swept by the Tampa Bay Rays. The Indians battled the whole night to try and come from behind, managing to do so in the 8th inning on an RBI single from Roberto Perez. It wouldn...

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...

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

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. These rankings represent a snapshot...

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...

Rodriguez on Hitting Tear to Headline Minor League Round-Up

Nellie Rodriguez has been on an absolute tear lately. Rodriguez has been the hottest hitter out of all of the Indians minor league affiliates. Rodriguez for the week had 11 hits in 26 at bats hitting .423 while scoring eight runs, with two doubles, five homeruns and 12 runs batted in. Rodriguez is currently riding a 10-game hitting streak in which he scored 12 runs and added three...

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.

Both played pivotal roles in the Indians' 9-3 win over the Yankees on Thursday at...
