Tribe comes on late, but Cookie crumbles early.
THERE’S your right-handed power bat.
Despite much better play in August that has continued into September, the Cleveland Indians have struggled to move above the .500 mark on the season. However, due to a weaker than usual American League Wild Card field, the Indians have been able to remain lurking just behind the other contenders. After winning two of three
Forget the stars. The real heroes of football are the scrubs.
Wednesday was why Tuesday’s game hurt so bad. The margin for error with the Cleveland Indians postseason chances is too thin to allow potential wins to slip away as there will still be some games that just do not go well from the beginning. Wednesday was just such a day as the Toronto Blue Jays
One might find themselves wondering how the Cleveland Indians have been able to charge back into contention for the American League postseason. How did a team that started the year 7-14 in April become a team that could sweep a fellow Wild Card contender in the Los Angeles Angels and then give the American League
This. This was a tough one to lose.
The atmosphere along with the game itself would have felt right at home in October. Both the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians were fully engaged from the first pitch through the last out, and so was the extraordinarily loud Rogers Centre. There was great pitching, awesome defensive plays, clutch performances, and, most importantly, a
The Cleveland Indians are still incredible long shots to make the playoffs. The AL Central has been all but won by the Kansas City Royals, making the Wild Card the only route to October. However, four teams are still above the Indians in the race for the last Wild Card playoff spot. The Indians trail the Wild
The Tribe produced some highlights in a rare winning week.
There have been more downs than ups over the past 15 seasons. That only makes our favorite players mean that much more.
Joe Banner back y’all!
Walks, steals, and home runs: What wins are made of.
Michael Brantley went NOVA against his former team once again.
Carlos Santana has been having an interesting season at the plate. In his most recent stretch of games, he only has three hits in the last 26 plate appearances (3-for-21 with four walks), but he has made each of those hits count. Santana had two home runs over the weekend against the New York Yankees,
It was a period of civil war. Tribe analytic versus traditional fans fighting over the reasons for a disappointing season and were about to face the evil Yankee Empire. During the initial battle, a rebel by the moniker of Little Cowboy managed to fluster the empire to earn the first win and inspire ballads that
The Cleveland Indians could not have asked for a better setup to win on Wednesday unless John Danks himself was the opposing starting pitcher. Still, right-handed starter Joe Kelly was a close replica as he entered the game with a 5.69 ERA for the Boston Red Sox, and he had failed to finish even a
Sigh. The day after the Cleveland Indians exploded for a strong offensive showing to complement a strong pitching performance, they fell back to scuffling on offense, while Trevor Bauer did not even last two innings. Such is the life in a season of a last place team whose pendulum comes down to match every upward swing. On Tuesday,
We tend to view fortune in sports in binary terms. This player has been lucky. That player has been unlucky. However, is it possible for a player to both be fortunate and unfortunate at the same time? Such has seemingly been the case with Danny Salazar’s post All-Star break starts, as his sterling 1.76 ERA,
Terry Francona spent Tuesday with his good friend John Farrell1. The two began a friendship in 1988 as members of the Cleveland Indians, one which has continued over the years. So, when John Farrell, now the manager of the Boston Red Sox, was diagnosed with Stage 1 lymphoma and his first chemotherapy session happened to coincide with
