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...

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...

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

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.

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.
