Borowski: “This is not fun.”

White Sox 3, Indians 2; 10 innings (box) Joe Borowski summed up the entire season in four short words. Thanks Joe. At least we can count on you for something. We certainly won’t be handing you the ball to face Alexei Ramirez anytime soon. Part of me is happy that Borowski owned his mistake– “This is not

Sabathia Shuts Out Distractions, and the Reds

Indians 6, Reds 0 (Box) It can’t be easy for Cleveland’s Cy Young winner. Every time you pick up a sports section, turn on ESPN, or jump on the internet you see rumors flying around about where C.C. will finish the season. (More on that in a minute.) Sabathia himself admitted it was getting to

Wait, the Indians Were On?

Indians 4, Giants 1 (box) Between the rain delay – that forced that game to start about an hour late – and the whole NBA Draft thing, last night’s Tribe game was likely one of the least viewed in recent weeks.  And while I’m fully in the camp that missed nearly every pitch, a bit of history was

Another Team in the Sabathia Mix?

  Okay.  We’ve mentioned the Red Sox and Cubs in the same post.  Not long thereafter, we touched on the Yankees.  Then just yesterday, we talked about the Phillies, Brewers and Rays.  Well, how about another team? The Cleveland Indians. You read that right.  Though we’ve run up the flag, and the team apparently did

E-6

I had the opportunity to go to the Indians/Giants game Tuesday night for Omar Vizquel’s return to Cleveland. What follows is my experience and thoughts on the evening… The Indians were smart. Someone decided that they would allow the fans to say thank you to Omar before the game even started. A tribute video was

Your Last Place Cleveland Indians

Giants 4, Indians 1 (box)   Welcome to last place, Tribe fans!  You read that right.  Last place.  After being one game away from the World Series and making next to zero moves to improve going into this season, we are officially half of a game behind the Kansas City Royals.  Given that it’s borderline worthless to even write a

Stars & Stripes Wahoo: Yea, or Nay?

If you haven’t heard, MLB.com is selling an alternate version of the hats worn by all 30 baseball teams.  Said hats will reportedly be worn by the teams during the July 4th weekend, as well as September 11th. While I’m not about to go all fashion police, I wanted to point you to a few

Oh Look, More Sabathia Trade Rumors!

It’s been about two or three days since we’ve last touched on the possibilities of C.C. Sabathia being traded out of Cleveland.  Paul Hoynes recently mentioned that the Tribe is in no hurry to find a suitor, which is actually surprising news.  Somehow, I have a feeling that Mark Shapiro is fielding (and making) phone

Sacrifice Bunts: Like Riding a Bike

Remembering Max Ramirez

What started as a way to bring you up to speed with former Indians Ryan Church and Ryan Ludwick has turned into quite the feature over here at WFNY.  But some of you may be saying, “Who the heck is Max Ramirez?”  Max, whose full first name is Maximiliano, is a 23-year old catcher that

Byrd’s Splits Strike Again

Dodgers 4, Indians 3 (box) It’s never good when there is action in the bullpen during the first inning.  Such was the case yesterday afternoon when Paul Byrd gave up four runs before even recording an out.  I bet Byrd would like that inning back, because from the second inning on, we saw a completely

More ABs for CC?

Indians 6, Dodgers 4 (box) Indians 7, Dodgers 2 (box) How about that home run? Don’t worry, more on that in a second. First things first. Can these starting pitchers get a little help here? Cliff Lee and C.C. Sabathia have been nothing short of dominant over the last two days. Their combined numbers: 14.1

Carmona, Hafner Still Hurting

Jake Westbrook, Fausto Carmona, Victor Martinez, Travis Hafner, Josh Barfield, Michael Aubrey. All of them are currently on the DL for the Indians. It seems they won’t be getting Carmona and Hafner back anytime soon. Reports from the Indians might as well be coming from the Cleveland Clinic these days. The latest from the Tribe

Eric Wedge: Persona Non Grata

Do we here at Waiting For Next Year tend to focus much nihilism towards our professional play-calling directors?  Perhaps.  And often times, it may be laced with a dab of frustration that can lead to unwarrented blame.  It is a secret to no one that the Cavaliers’ Mike Brown was a frequent target of much angst

So, About Byrd’s Trade Value…

Rockies 10, Indians 2 (box) “It just didn’t happen for us,” [Indians pitcher Paul] Byrd said. Us, Paul?  Not to point fingers, but Byrd has now given up 10 earned runs over the past two outings – totalling seven innings pitched.  On a team that has been plagued by a lack of offense and the

Morgan Ensberg, Joining the Farm

With all of this talk regarding the Indians and the potential to be the future owners of former members of the New York Yankees, I present to you the ironically-timed announcement from the Indians Media Relations department: The Cleveland Indians announced they have signed 3B MORGAN ENSBERG to a minor league contract and assigned him

New York Comedy Festival

With no Tribe game to discuss, I thought it would be an opportune time to open a forum regarding two specific things that occurred yesterday; both making me shake my head in disbelief during more than one occasion. First, I find it absolutely hysterical (and a bit sad, actually) that there is a sudden outcry against interleague baseball because
