Embrace crying in baseball

No more baseball, coach? A simple, poignant question amid the flurry of medals, adulation, and reflection upon the conclusion of a Teeball Little League season. A four-year-old player on my team had realized that the celebration came at a harrowing cost; no more baseball. His eyes enlarged, reddened, and finally allowed streams of teardrops to

The weekend that wasn’t: Tigers sweep the Tribe

It is such a shame. How many times do the Indians draw over 100,000 fans in a weekend? I’ll tell you how many: Zero in the past three seasons. Its the first time this has happened since August of 2011. I don’t know what it is about the Indians and big crowds at Progressive Field,

Tigers 4, Indians 2: Golden opportunity slips through Tribe’s fingers

If the Indians don’t end up winning the AL Central title, all they will have to do is point to their performance against the rival Detroit Tigers as the key reason why. They had every chance to take last night’s 4-2, 10 inning, rain-soaked loss, but just could never capitalize on their bevy of chances.

Former Indians comment on Michael Bourn signing

This season the Indians have committed (we use the term loosely as the Tribe could always flip these deals) $117 million dollars to free agents. The past three off-seasons, Cleveland has spent just over $11 million total to free agents. This fact was not lost on players, current and former. That’s why Michael Bourn’s deal

What the Big Three Trades Have Meant to the 2011 Indians

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
