It’s probably not a coincidence that Jimmy Haslam sold his family’s business just a few weeks prior to former employees going on trial for a fraud scheme.
Cliff Lee will hang up his cleats after 13 years in the league. The lefty had a 143-91 record in 328 games (324 starts), while earning himself a 3.52 ERA, 1,824 strikeouts, and 29 complete games.
There are 18 former Cleveland Indians on the market. Are any worthy of a reunion?
With the 20-year anniversary of Jacobs/Progressive Field almost upon us, we will be taking a look at top-fives in each aspect of the Indians on the field. We started last week with the bullpens and today we will move to the starting rotations. Coming up with five groups was not an easy task. Let’s be honest
I know, right? Another attendance article about the Cleveland Indians! I can’t help it. This is what I’m thinking about right now, and I have no choice but to write about the things I’m thinking about. Hopefully this won’t continue a trend of simplistic posts that are focused on singular details. Rather, I wanted to

Over the last three games heading into last night, the talk of Cleveland sports has been the awakening of the Tribe offense. The 33-run, 48- hit explosion was just what the doctor ordered to heal the wounded psyche of the Wahoo Warriors. And while the bats have been rightfully praised, there has been a dirty
I am a huge fan of the Ron and Fez show on Sirius XM Satellite radio. They do a bit on the radio called life boat, and I’m borrowing it for Cleveland sports. Here’s how it works. There are four people and only three seats remaining on the life boat. You must work your way

Some QB insight after a rare interview with Holmgren: “Judging by Holmgren’s comments, the Browns either thought about taking Weeden in the second round
It is a sore subject for Tribe fans as it should be. Back on July 29th of 2009, the Indians sent Cy Young award winning starting pitcher Cliff Lee to Philadelphia. At the time, the Phillies were streaking towards the postseason while the Indians were in full regression mode. It was the second consecutive year in
I think the Browns are going to look good on offense throughout the game, but the Bengals’ defense isn’t one we can just walk all over. Cleveland’s running game is a bit questionable right now because we didn’t get to see it on display during the preseason much, and the offensive line is shaky too.
I’ve not always done a good job of hiding my contempt for the sort of pitcher David Huff became over the last several years. After flirting with some real upside early in his MLB career, he appeared to settle into the sort of mediocrity that has been typified most notably by Jeremy Sowers. That is
In 2008, the front office started the long and arduous process of ripping my heart out. In July of that year, they admitted what I wasn’t ready to: the team wasn’t good anymore. Whether it was due to injury, poor luck, or simple regression didn’t matter. Only that the team wasn’t good enough to win
Justin Masterson takes the mound tonight for the Indians, looking to improve his record to 3-0. He has given up just 2 runs in over 13 innings of work this season, for a 1.35 ERA, with a 3:1 strikeout to walk ratio. Carlos Carrasco bounced back from a bad first start, and has pitched well
One of the worst parts about LeBron James leaving Cleveland was for season ticket holders. As everyone knows, Cleveland Cavaliers fans needed to be speculators and try to guess if LeBron was going to come back or not and make a decision whether to re-up before free agency completed. I’ll give Cavs fans credit. For
On Tuesday I tried to make you feel good about the 2011 Indians. I told you how if things go just right, this team can compete in the AL Central. It was a shiny, happy day. Today I might end up making you feel sort of crummy about the 2007 Indians. Yes, it’s a weird
Now that free agency is in full swing, we’ve seen some insane contracts (*cough*Jayson Werth*cough*) and some public posturing (Derek Jeter, anyone?). But, there’s probably not a more coveted free agent this off-season than pitcher and former Indian Cliff Lee. There’s a rumor that the drunken sailors running the Washington Nationals are pushing hard for
Ah, the 2007 Indians. So close to winning a World Series. If only CC and Fausto hadn’t wet themselves in Games five and six. If only Joel Skinner didn’t hold up the stop sign on Kenny Lofton. If only Casey Blake hadn’t hit the next pitch for a 5-4-3 tailor made double play…. UGH!!!! I

Anyone else enjoy watching Cliff Lee absolutely dissect the New York Yankees last night? That was a Picasso that ole’ Cliff painted in the Bronx. No runs, two hits, 13 strikeouts, and just one walk against the best lineup in baseball? Can you believe what we are watching? I think we all knew that Lee
