Westbrook sinks Sox in game 3

Jake Westbrook pitched the Indians into a 2-1 lead in the ALCS tonight. Inducing 13 ground ball outs, and 3 double plays Westbrook put gave the Tribe faithful more than could be expected. The bullpen was excellent as usual. In fact, this game looked more like the 96 wins we saw over the course of

Defining moment?

Sometimes a moment, or a game can define a season or a team. Friday night the 2007 Indians might have had that moment. By now you know the story. You watched as 23 year old Fausto Carmona pitched the playoff game of a lifetime. You saw him strike out 5 Yankees, including soon to be

Time Is Not On His Side

Indians Holding Back On Years For Sabathia Sometimes the writing on the wall is so obvious, it hurts. The writing on this wall was so bright it served as a blinding beacon. For the past year, I have been telling anyone who would listen that the main factor that is going to prevent CC Sabathia

Shapiro Already Talkin’ About The Hot Stove

Peralta To Stay At Shortstop I talked a little earlier this week about some of the changes I thought we could expect to see in the 2008 version of the Tribe. Yesterday, Mark Shapiro spoke to the press about some of those changes. He pretty much talked about all the main points that I mentioned,

Many People Saw Us Lose

Small Market, Big Stage We always hear a lot of talk about the small market Indians. I guess that’s true, I mean, there’s no denying what our payroll looks like ($61.29 million) and where it ranks (23rd in the majors). I just always find it kind of funny because I don’t remember a lot of

Where We’ve Been And Where We’ve Yet To Go

Where We’ve Been…     Looking back on Game 4 of the ALCS last night, I really feel like that game reinforced everything I’ve felt about this team since the playoffs began. That performance is exactly what this Indians offense is. They may not be the best lineup in baseball, but on any given night,

Manny Being Manny

I Am Moron, Hear Me Roar!!! If you listen to ESPN Radio’s morning show, Mike & Mike In The Morning with Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, you would have heard an awful lot of talk about Manny Ramirez the last couple days. Normally, I tend to agree more with Golic than Greeny, and you would

Beckett better, series returns to Boston

How do you kill zombies again? Seriously, Lugo looks dead in this photo! We gave up a bunt single to a corpse! (No, I did not alter this photo in any way!) If you are looking for me to make excuses for Thursday’s loss you will be disappointed. Josh Beckett beat the Indians. That’s it.

Is There A Mole In The Red Sux Organization?

Do you remember John Farrell? In addition to being drafted by the Indians and spending a few years pitching for the Tribe, he has also been Cleveland’s Farm Director since 2001. Until this year, that is, when Terry Francona hired John to be Boston’s pitching coach. As a former director of our minor league system,

I am a fan.

I am a Cleveland sports fan. I was raised that way. I’m not the only one. I know that around Ohio, and scattered around the country, people were hurting as I was yesterday. I feel like Victor does in this photo. I could hardly watch at the end either. I never saw the last half

Tribe watches game slip away, will try tonight to put away the Yanks

The Indians had a chance yesterday to take the Yankees behind the woodshed and put the country out of its misery. Unfortunately, they couldn’t finish the act and we are subjected to more over-priced pinstripes. I just finished reading a column by Howard Bryant of ESPN who seems to think that the Indians are in

I’ve Got Your Perspective Right Here… The Plain Dealer’s Bill Livingston wrote a nice piece this week about Paul Byrd and his reaction to Eric Wedge’s confidence in him.

Give A-Rod the MVP…please!

There is little doubt that Alex Rodriguez will win this year’s AL MVP award. He has the best stats of any hitter in baseball this year. 54 home runs. 156 RBI. A batting average of .314. A slugging percentage of .645. Yep, he’s the best this year. Funny thing about that MVP award, it sure
