Burning River Predicts the Future: 2015 Indians Edition

Every year the staff at BurningRiverBaseball.com incorrectly predicts who they think will be the Indians statistical leaders by the end of the season as well as the winners of the Burning River Awards given out at the end of the year. Proving how impossible it is to predict, very rarely do we get things right, but it won’t keep us from trying. Prognosticators this year include...

Salazar Demoted After Rough Start

After a month of telling you to ignore Spring Training stats, especially the amount of home runs allowed in the offense friendly Goodyear Ballpark, the Indians are telling you the opposite. Less than one day after saying that no one start will make or break a pitcher’s chance at the starting rotation, Danny Salazar has been demoted to AAA, essentially setting the starting rotation...

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) The Indians have optioned Danny Salazar to Triple-A Columbus. Salazar had been in the running to win one of the two open spots in Cleveland's starting rotation, but the right-hander has struggled this spring and the Indians sent him back to the minors.

Indians option Danny Salazar to Class AAA Columbus

The Cleveland Indians have optioned pitcher Danny Salazar to Class AAA Columbus. This means Zach McAllister, T.J. House and Josh Tomlin will fight for the final two rotations spots for the Indians. The team has their first three rotation spots settled with Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer, so these final two spots will need to be decided on relatively soon. It was...

16 Reasons Why Sports Illustrated Didn’t Just Jinx the Indians

Well, they went and did it again. Twenty-eight years after forecasting an “Indian Uprising” that resulted in a 101-loss dumpster fire, Sports Illustrated has once again picked an upstart Tribe team to emerge from the middle of the pack and win it all. And they packaged this news in essentially the exact same wrapping paper: Corey Kluber and Michael Brantley grinning like mental...

New Kid In Town: James Ramsey

After Justin Masterson‘s rough start to the 2014 season, many fans were debating whether or not the Indians should give him a qualifying offer, ensuring draft pick compensation if he were to sign with another team in the off-season. By the All-Star break, Masterson’s struggles had gotten so bad that many fans were wondering if he’d be able to bring any value at all if the Tribe...

Tribe 101 with Prof. Rosen: Hitters

I still do not know much about the Cleveland Indians, and I want to continue to change that. Tribe season is fast approaching, and I want to be able to talk about the team without people looking at me like they looked at Donald Trump when he said he was running for president. You see, I’m awfully baseball-dumb. I once knew a thing or two about MLB, but I also once knew a thing...

Chisenhall Must Find a Way to Improve Defense Throughout Season

There was hardly a player more talked about during last year’s Spring Training than Lonnie Chisenhall. Would he get the third base job, what would happen between he and Carlos Santana, would Chisenhall end up in the minors, did he have what it took to be a contributing member of the team on more than just the bench, what was going to happen? Chisenhall managed to fight his way...

Debating Lindor, Patrice O’Neal is “Better Than You”: While We’re Waiting…

Thanks for reading everything this week and listening to all the podcasts. For some reason I’m particularly happy with how this week went. There were just enough things to talk about and just enough things to write about, although I know Harv is just about done with all the off-season Browns talk. Trying to figure out Lindor… I really don’t want to be lumped in with the...

Potential 25 Man Roster of the Future

We are ever closer to reducing to 25 men in camp as the most recent set of cuts brought the Indians to just 37 players left in Goodyear. There were definitely some surprises this time around as two players who were considered possibilities, Bruce Chen and C.C. Lee, were reassigned to minor league camp. There was also some disappointment for many fans as Francisco Lindor was also...

Indians prank Jose Ramirez, park his car at shortstop

Cleveland Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez should stop leaving his car keys in the hands of people he doesn’t trust. If not, he could find his BMW fielding a ground ball without a glove on.

Jose Ramirez’s car plays a little shortstop

It’s understandable if the Indians want more speed on defense, but this is ridiculous. Jose Ramirez’s BMW was parked at his shortstop position when the team took the field at their Goodyear, Arizona facility Thursday morning. The youngster apparently has a reputation for parking his ride wherever he sees fit, and his teammates pranked him by putting it smack in the middle...

Indians Mike Aviles Parks Shortstop Jose Ramirez’s SUV On Field

I’m game for a solid Spring Training prank. Let’s go to Indians camp where the boys are loose because Sports Illustrated already has them winning the World Series. This came from a member of the grounds crew.   Mike Aviles didn’t like how Jose Ramirez parked his car anywhere in the players lot so he stole the keys and moved it pic.twitter.com/isq8M9EXsJ — Danny Bunkers...

Atchison, Aging Well, Will Again be Key Bullpen Arm in 2015

The time-line for most Major League Baseball players typically involves being a rookie in their early 20s, hitting their stride in their mid 20s, having their peak years in their late 20s and early 30s, declining in their mid 30s and retiring – if lucky enough – in their late 30s. Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Scott Atchison is far from your typical baseball player, at least...

A tough decision on the Cleveland Indians final rotation spot

This team may have the most consistent year-to-year roster retention it has had in decades. Although there weren’t any major splashes in free agency, the Indians did not lose any of its foundation either and henceforth, look to be promising in the upcoming season. However, their lone pitching pickup, Gavin Floyd, has re-aggravated his elbow and will be out indefinitely. This...
