Gardy says goodbye, cheering Jim Brown, and Tribe Twitter: While We’re Waiting…

The Wednesday WWW was manned by the great Rick Grayshock, who has since moved onto other endeavors. It will be a tough act to follow him, but on most Wednesdays during the Tribe offseason, I will be taking this space over. So wish me luck and I hope you enjoy my spin. Did you know that since 1986, the Minnesota Twins have had just TWO managers? That’s right. Two. Tom Kelly, who...

Back-to-back winning seasons breeds optimism for Tribe

CLEVELAND -- Despite not making the postseason, the Indians sound more optimistic going into this year's offseason compared to this time last year after appearing in the AL Wild Card game. Last year the Indians still had a ton of questions about the pitching staff along with trying to extend some of their young core of players. When the front office and scouts gather in Goodyear...

Indians bring down curtain on 2014 with 7-2 win over Tampa Bay

The Indians, headed nowhere but home, ended their season Sunday at Progressive Field. The last game of the year, without an invitation to the postseason, is always a wistful time.

Tribe wins 85: Happy, but not satisfied

Eighty-five wins. You know how many wins the 1997 Cleveland Indians had when they were two outs away from winning the World Series? Eighty-six. Not one person complained when that team won 86 games because the AL Central was so horrific that the Indians were the only team over .500. So when I hear a faction of “Indians fans” whining about this season, it begs the question, where...
