Indians look to protect a young rotation still establishing itself

The Indians made a surprising decision with starting rotation this week. First, the Indians out of nowhere signed right-handed starting pitcher Gavin Floyd to a one-year $4 million that guarantees him money and a rotation spot for the 2015 season. Then, the Indians announced that Danny Salazar, T.J. House, Zach McAllister and Josh Tomlin will have to duke it out in spring training...

Building a Wahoo Winner: Establish some arms behind Kluber

Prior to the start of the 2014 season, I made a claim that the combined performance of Corey Kluber and Zach McAllister would mirror the Indians season. In essence, if Kluber and McAllister pitched well, the Tribe would be playoff bound once again, but should they fall apart, the Tribe would as well. As it turns out - I was somewhat correct in this prediction. Kluber is currently...

Second Thoughts Game #149: Indians 1, Astros 3

McAllister a Bright Spot The last thing the Indians could have afforded was going 2-5 last week. For all intents and purposes, the Indians playoff hopes are over. Still, a four game stretch against the Astros seemed promising for the team to get back to their winning ways. As has been a constant and frustrating theme, the Indians offense didn’t do enough to support Zach McAllister...

Tribe bats non-existent in fourth straight loss

The Indians—oh my beloved Cleveland Indians. They are teetering on the brink of bad and boring. Well, at least the offense is. We have seen one solid pitching performance go by the wayside too many times since the All-Star break. This time it was spot starter Zach McAllister who did all he could to keep his team in the game while the bats offered little run support in a 3-1 loss...
