The Cleveland Indians are still incredible long shots to make the playoffs. The AL Central has been all but won by the Kansas City Royals, making the Wild Card the only route to October. However, four teams are still above the Indians in the race for the last Wild Card playoff spot. The Indians trail the Wild
The Tribe produced some highlights in a rare winning week.
There have been more downs than ups over the past 15 seasons. That only makes our favorite players mean that much more.
Joe Banner back y’all!
Walks, steals, and home runs: What wins are made of.
Michael Brantley went NOVA against his former team once again.
Carlos Santana has been having an interesting season at the plate. In his most recent stretch of games, he only has three hits in the last 26 plate appearances (3-for-21 with four walks), but he has made each of those hits count. Santana had two home runs over the weekend against the New York Yankees,
It was a period of civil war. Tribe analytic versus traditional fans fighting over the reasons for a disappointing season and were about to face the evil Yankee Empire. During the initial battle, a rebel by the moniker of Little Cowboy managed to fluster the empire to earn the first win and inspire ballads that
The Cleveland Indians could not have asked for a better setup to win on Wednesday unless John Danks himself was the opposing starting pitcher. Still, right-handed starter Joe Kelly was a close replica as he entered the game with a 5.69 ERA for the Boston Red Sox, and he had failed to finish even a
Sigh. The day after the Cleveland Indians exploded for a strong offensive showing to complement a strong pitching performance, they fell back to scuffling on offense, while Trevor Bauer did not even last two innings. Such is the life in a season of a last place team whose pendulum comes down to match every upward swing. On Tuesday,
We tend to view fortune in sports in binary terms. This player has been lucky. That player has been unlucky. However, is it possible for a player to both be fortunate and unfortunate at the same time? Such has seemingly been the case with Danny Salazar’s post All-Star break starts, as his sterling 1.76 ERA,
Terry Francona spent Tuesday with his good friend John Farrell1. The two began a friendship in 1988 as members of the Cleveland Indians, one which has continued over the years. So, when John Farrell, now the manager of the Boston Red Sox, was diagnosed with Stage 1 lymphoma and his first chemotherapy session happened to coincide with
The day after an uncharacteristic 0-for-4 outing versus the New York Yankees, Michael Brantley will miss Friday’s game between the Cleveland Indians and the Minnesota Twins with shoulder inflammation. The Indians have not announced the source of the injury or how long it has been bothering him. Michael Brantley had sat out of Wednesday’s game
Mike Aviles twin daughters, Adriana and Maiya, were chosen to throw out the first pitch at yesterday’s Indians-Yankees game. There was quite a bit of action before the pitch, and it was unbearably adorable. Your browser does not support iframes. There was a meeting of the minds (or head-to-head interaction, depending on your preferred pun)
“Nothing significant on the injury front to report,” Browns head coach Mike Pettine said to lead off his statement to the media after the Cleveland Browns completed their first preseason game of the 2015 NFL season. There might not be a better statement that a NFL head coach can make at the conclusion of a
Pro Football Focus (PFF) has become one of the more trusted sources of advanced analytical information about the NFL over the past several seasons. In the preseason tradition of releasing rankings and expectations for NFL teams and players, PFF has began releasing their top 10 player rankings at each position. Fans of the Cleveland Browns
Now that the 2015 season has turned itself over to evaluating players for 2016 rather than making a playoff push1 , it is important to recognize where the battles are being forged. Barring a franchise-altering trade Jason Kipnis (2B), Michael Brantley (LF), Francisco Lindor (SS), Carlos Santana (1B/DH), and Yan Gomes / Roberto Perez (C)
The Cleveland Indians nearly had another familiar ending to a game in the 2015 season. The Indians hit 4-for-15 with RISP leaving 15 men on base throughout the night. Carlos Carrasco was spectacular as the starting pitcher and went deep into the game, but he left with a no decision. When the New York Yankees
Running back was supposedly a position of depth, if not strength, for the Cleveland Browns coming into 2015 Training Camp. Many fans and analysts believed the Browns would rely on a combination of those backs rather than having one player carry the majority of the load. However, as is often the case with the position, a slew of
Earlier on Monday, Brian Windhorst noted that there was “no real progress” made between Cleveland Cavaliers restricted free agent forward Tristan Thompson and the team since the second week of July when free agency opened. However, in a shift, Rich Paul (Thompson’s agent at LRMR) has told Toronto-based Sportsnet that Thompson is preparing to sign
