5/3 Recap: “Comeback City, Yeah We Back On The Map.”

Player of the Game Lead-off hitter Jason Kipnis had a fantastic day adding to his solid production as the lead-off hitter for the last week.

MLB Quick Hits: What's wrong with Corey Kluber?

After winning the Cy Young award last season, Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber would be happy to win just about anything this year.  In six starts this season, Kluber is winless with a record of 0-4. Although he's been victimized by a lack of run support in each of his starts, Kluber has been getting rocked lately, allowing 31 hits in his last three games. Kluber also has four...

Carlos Santana; All Around The Diamond

It is no secret the Cleveland Indians’ manager Terry Francona loves versatility on his team. Tito prefers players like Mike Aviles and Jose Ramirez that can play multiple positions without skipping a beat.

Today in Tribe History: May 3, 1992

1992 – In a rare feat in Major League Baseball, Cleveland outfielder Alex Cole steals five bases in one game.

It marked just the 15th time in the modern era of baseball that one player stole at least five bases in a game. Cole became just the second player in MLB...

5/2 Recap: A Few Close Plays Turn Close Game Into Blowout

Player of the Game Unlike the three relievers who stumbled through the sixth inning, Ryan Webb was able to get batters out tonight without allowing other batters to reach base.

How To Replace Your House

If you didn’t catch it yesterday, T.J. House has been placed on the 15-day DL due to inflammation in his throwing shoulder.

Should Tribe Move Forward with a House-less Rotation?

Coming into the season, the Indians rotation was heralded as one of the strongest aspects of the team. At it’s strongest, it boasted the American League Cy Young award winner, a starter turned reliever turned starter who had one of the most impressive ends to a season, and a youngster on the brink of a breakout career. The names to fill in the back of the rotation were hardly names...

Can You Give Me A Kluber?

True story: in a 15-team league last year, I toyed with dropping Corey Kluber in April. He was being dropped in multiple leagues, most shallower than mine. If you think I'm crazy as a loon wearing a "I'm crazier than a loon" t-shirt, you have selective memory about him from last year. I decided to stick it out with Kluber and he ended up winning the Cy Young last year. This...
