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.

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.

League Park Reopening Celebrated

Of the ballparks in existence in the early 20th century, only Wrigley Field and Fenway Park remain as major league venues – and are venerated. Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds were turned into apartments. Braves Field was repurposed as a collegiate football field, and many others were lost to history. League Park on East 66th and Lexington in Cleveland’s Hough was spared that...

Tribe Pitcher Withstood Lightning Bolt to Finish Game

Indians manager Tris Speaker took a big chance signing Ray Caldwell. He was a gifted pitcher, but his taste for nightlife and bizarre antics kept him from being one of the best. So when Caldwell made his debut for the Indians on Aug. 24, 1919, at League Park, he wasn’t going to let anything keep him from finishing the start – not even an act of God. Caldwell took the hill with...

Sparkplug Ramirez Helping Indians Offense Go

He might be the right spark at just the right time. Jose Ramirez was quite the spark this past weekend, logging seven hits in the three-game series versus Houston. Seven hits is a good weekend, but a game-winning base hit in the ninth on Saturday and a key, two-out base hit to drive in a run on Sunday makes a great weekend. On the surface, Ramirez’s .235 batting average seems quite...
