Indians Season Ended Abruptly in 1918

Although the 1918 season ended early, it ended even earlier than scheduled for the Indians. In 1917, the United States joined the conflict then known as the War to End All Wars and now more mundanely known as World War I. Despite predictions of a short war, European powers had bogged down into trench warfare. By 1918, the U.S. government was expecting to be at war for the long haul...

Detroit Mauls Weary Tribe in Series Opener; Tigers 12, Indians 1

The Indians were a tired team and the Detroit Tigers put them to sleep on Labor Day.

Carlos Moncrief’s “Hose” No Secret Anymore

Hose. Cannon. Rifle. Laser. Whatever you want to call it, Columbus Clippers outfielder Carlos Moncrief has it. His International League leading 22 assists have left fans saying “wow” and base-runners walking back to the dugout shaking their heads all season long. “I never knew I was doing anything spectacular because nobody said anything,” the 25-year-old Moncrief said. “It...

Indians Should Stick with August Upstarts as September Roster Expands

Well, isn’t this a surprise. While it seems like the Cleveland Indians have been here before, it still seems like a shock. Just a month ago after play on July 31, the Indians were 53-55 overall and 6.5 games back in the American League Central Division, stuck in third place. In the two days previous Cleveland had traded Asdrubal Cabrera and Justin Masterson to contenders for young...

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...

Today In Tribe History: September 1, 2008

Cliff Lee beats the Pale Hose, 5 – 0, to become the first 20-game winner for the Cleveland Indians in 34 years; Gaylord Perry had done it most recently. No franchise had gone longer without a 20-game winner.

Addition by Subtraction

If you were told that a team had traded away two former All-Stars, their closer, and their former setup man, all within the span of a little over two weeks, it generally is safe to say that the fire sale was in full effect and the hopes for the rest of the season would be on watching young prospects fight for their futures while the team played out their remaining schedule. The Cleveland...

Tribe Missed Out on Saberhagen in 1993

Indians owner Bill Veeck said, after a deal stalled to deal player-manager Lou Boudreau, that sometimes the best deal is the one you don’t make. After the 1993 season, the Indians were wheeling and dealing. Although the nucleus of players that would make the Tribe an AL Central powerhouse were in place, General Manager Jon Hart was wheeling and dealing. On Dec. 2, pitcher Dennis...

Tribe Runs Through Wind and Rain to Hustle by KC; Indians 6, Royals 1

Danny Salazar pitched five strong innings, to out-pitch veteran Jason Vargas before a 45-minute rain...

Tribe Bullpen as Strong Ever

In 2011 and 2012 the Cleveland Indians had a bullpen that was good enough to develop a nickname. The 2014 Tribe bullpen does not have any special monikers but may well be better than those pens that were the backbone of struggling baseball teams. After a 2013 season of bullpen question marks and implosions, the Indians are enjoying a fantastic relief season this year. The pen is...

Roster Expansion Will Give Tribe a Chance to Find Missing Pieces

It’s almost September, which means it’s almost time for scarves, pumpkins, and to cease wearing white. It’s also time for what will hopefully be meaningful baseball and the most anticipated September happening — roster expansions and September call-ups. The Indians have had an up-and-down season that has resulted in an average record. Their starting pitchers have been through...
