Building a Wahoo Winner: Getting Swisher, Bourn back to form

As the winter of 2012 thawed its way into the spring of 2013, so did the Cleveland Indians thaw the previously frozen heart of their organization. The additions of Terry Francona, Michael Bournand Nick Swisher prior to the 2013 season pumped life into a jaded fan-base and brought, if only for a fleeting moment, visions of the ticker tape floating from the sky and onto East 9th...

With a young core in place, Indians need to look for power

They teased. They winked. And they beckoned. But when the final chapter closed on the 162-game journey, the Indians fell just short of the postseason and a spot to play in October. Not exactly the outcome many envisioned at the start of spring training, especially for a team coming in with high expectations. For the 11th time in 13 years, winter has again come too soon for Tribe...

CLEVELAND – Terry Francona has talked often during the season about how special it has been watching Michael Brantley emerge as one of the top players in the American League. With his fourth-inning single off Alex Colome on Saturday night against Tampa Bay, Brantley entered into some pretty exclusive company.

Indians need wins - and help

With every win, every strikeout and with an almost robotic efficiency, Corey Kluber has quietly become one of the AL's best pitchers. And, just maybe, its Cy Young Award winner. With a cache of devastating pitches, the 27-year-old Kluber has developed into a cold-blooded terminator from 60 feet, 6 inches away. He's among the league's leaders in wins, strikeouts, ERA and...

What more is there to say? The Cleveland Indians had their chance to make the playoff run the way they did last year. It was all there in front of them. Four games with the Kansas City Royals.
