Indians finding nontraditional ways to add help with draft

A few weeks ago some interesting Indians news broke which kind of flew under the radar. It is rare when the Indians make a high profile addition and no one notices, but then again, I guess high profile is relative when it comes to the world of the MLB Draft. When you talk about the world of the MLB Draft there are some names that tend to stand out. Jim Callis and Jonathon Mayo get...

The makeup of the 2019 Cleveland Indians lineup

It’s hard to predict the makeup of a major league roster in five years.  In sports, all it takes is one injury to end or derail a promising career.  Besides the obvious injury factor, you never know if a player is going to exceed or fall short of expectations and contract value. Who would’ve thought Michael Brantley would finish third in the MVP race this past season?  Corey...

Be Thankful for the Cleveland Indians

It’s Thanksgiving – a day to be grateful and overindulge in the mounds of food placed before you. A day of cornucopias and parades and pilgrims and Indians. Cleveland Indians? Yes, Thanksgiving is a day of football, but, if we’re giving thanks, it’s also a time to be thankful for the Cleveland Indians. It may seem trivial to give thanks to a sports’ team on a day that...

Jared Robinson is about as confident a pitcher as you will find in the Indians minor league system. Selected in the 11th round out of this year’s draft out of Cerritos Junior College in California, the just turned 20-year old right-handed pitcher combines a mix of youthful exuberance and supreme confidence to get results on the mound. “I am the type of pitcher that you don...

Cespedes would be a near perfect fit for the Indians

A lot of attention is on the Red Sox at the moment after their blockbuster free agent signings of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval on Monday.

Under the radar free agent options for the Indians

The hot stove league is already warm and is only going to get hotter. While Indians fans would like to see the front office add a big bat like Nelson Cruz or a front line starting pitcher like Jon Lester or James Shields, the chances of that happening are very remote. While they have spent big dollars in the past with the big contracts doled out to Michael Bourn and Nick...

It’s time to extend Corey Kluber long-term

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber makes about minimum wage when it comes to paying Major League Baseball players. That’s great for the Tribe now, but soon it will cost the team a lot more, possibly to the point where he couldn’t be afforded, unless action is taken sooner than later. The Indians certainly don’t have to sign pitcher Corey Kluber to a long-term contract...
