They have some ground to make up, but the Indians have two of the best starters in baseball.
Cleveland Indians fans and Kate Upton were both less than pleased to see Rick Porcello win the 2016 AL Cy Young award.
The Cleveland Indians social media account is not afraid to speak its mind. I know that’s a lot of weird pronouns, but I still find it admittedly strange when organizations and things use Twitter as if they’re people. Regardless, @Indians – whoever it is – is doing a bang-up job of interacting and entertaining along
Another day, another positive article being written about the Cleveland Indians. Apparently, David Schoenfield had drawn the Friday slot for waxing poetic about one of the Indians pitchers, but the pitcher that he wrote about may surprise you. He started off with the basic premise of attempting to identify the 2015 pitchers who might best
Happy Thursday, WFNYers! I’m pinch-hitting for Jacob today as he learns how to quack properly out in Oregon.. or something like that. Speaking of which, let’s start with that Jacob guy. Yesterday, Krossover named him one of the #RisingStars in Sports Analytics. Most everybody around these parts already knew that, but it’s really neat to
Note: this piece is not about Cleveland sports per se, though it is about the responsibility of one Cleveland sportswriter in particular. Consider yourself warned. I’ve been debating about whether to respond to this piece in last weekend’s Plain Dealer, but considering that Paul Hoynes writes to a massive and impressionable audience, I think it’s
Earlier this week, TD waxed poetic about the handful of former Indians who have been traded away within the last two seasons and will also be playing well into the month of October. This list did not even touch on those that left via free agency, which could potentially field an entire starting nine, and
While We’re Waiting serves as the early morning gathering of WFNY-esque information for your pleasurable viewing. Have something you think we should see and read about tomorrow? Send it to our tips email in the sidebar. Analyzing the Sabathia trade, one year later: “LaPorta and Brantley were obviously the keys to the deal, from the
Toronto Blue Jays (3-1) at Cleveland Indians (0-3) Progressive Field; Cleveland, OH Dates/Times (EST): 4/10 4:05 PM, 4/11 1:05 PM, 4/12 1:05 PM TV/Radio: 4/10 WKYC/3; 4/11,12 STO (HD)/WTAM 1100 AM Well, not much has changed in the win column since the last preview. A few ERAs are higher, and the team is hoping to
With the preseason that Jake Westbrook had back in 2008, there was no pitcher that had the biggest potential of a surprise season than he. Of course, Cliff Lee went on to have one of the best seasons ever by an Indians starting pitcher but he was not alone in his successes through the first
Not long after saying that he would rather work out with the team rather than play in the World Baseball Classic, Tribe ace Cliff Lee has stated that he is willing to discuss a contract extension that would invariably keep him in Cleveland beyond 2010. Lee’s agent, Darak Braunecker (the same gentlemen to break the
The American League MVP award was announced late yesterday. And while Boston’s Dustin Pedroia took home the title, it’s worth mentioning that two members of the Cleveland Indians received some consideration among the top 15.
Well, it’s official, after weeks of speculation. Cliff Lee is your 2008 American League Cy Young winner, beating Toronto’s Roy Halladay who finished second. Lee earned 24 of 28 first-place votes and 132 total points in voting done by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Halladay garnered the other four first-place votes and finished with
For Cliff Lee, hopefully this is only the beginning. The salad and bread before the main course is served. Lee already won the AL’s comeback player of the year award, and this weekend he picked up two more honors. Lee was voted Most Outstanding Pitcher by the player’s association as well as AL Pitcher of
With the season nearing end, Cliff Lee’s sore neck will keep him out of his final start for the season. Bryan Bullington will take his spot on the hill, but I just thought I would point out Cliff’s final stats:
Cliff Lee had a rough ninth inning, but managed to get his league leading 22nd victory in a 12-5 win over the Royals. For Lee, it was his 5th victory over Kansas City this season. We have discussed Cliff’s chances of winning the Cy Young numerous times, and it appears that Lee has all but
While the Indians and fans alike are still reveling in the 20-win season of Cliff Lee, there is no denying that we’re are always looking at the “what-ifs.” What if Dennis Northcutt caught that pass against the Steelers. What if we don’t give up 30 yards on a third-and-long screen pass to the Raiders? What
Indians 10, Royals 3 (box) Yea! That’s how a real fourth place team does it!
Indians 5, Tigers 0 (box) First, 1-and-5 Jeremy Sowers goes perfect through five and now 5-and-10 Paul Byrd shuts out the Tigers through seven and two-thirds? Not to mention, it all comes after former Cy Young candidate Fausto Carmona gets lit up in only two plus frames. The official site had an interesting stat; one
Indians 15, Rangers 9 (box) It always happens. The minute we’re ready to write a guy off, he comes through with a huge game. We decide to give Andy Marte an “extended look” at third base to see what he can do. Casey Blake puts up seven RBI. Ryan Garko puts up a .224 average
