Makes Perfect Sense…

Indians 13 Rays 2 (Box) The Indians had lost 10 straight games. Think about that for a second. They hadn’t won a baseball game since June 27th when they beat the Reds. They have suffered 3 consecutive sweeps. Tampa Bay has the best record in the league. No brainer right? That’s why this is baseball

You Are The GM…..For Jhonny Peralta

WFNY readers have been playing GM for the Cavaliers since the playoffs ended. Well Tribe fans, the ‘off-season’ has come early for this year’s team. So we want your help. We will take a look at the Indians roster and determine who we should try and trade, who deserves an extension, and who we should

Un. Real.

Paul Byrd, in line for his first win in over a month, has to be absolutely thrilled with Rafael Betancourt right now. As a matter of fact, I’m not too pleased either.  Someone’s not invited to Carl Willis’ house this Christmas… All of the damage can be found after the jump.  Watch at your own

Grady Sizemore: 100/100

  If you can bring yourself to ignoring the fact that the Tribe has dropped nine straight, it should be mentioned that Grady Sizemore stole his 100th base of the season his career in last night’s loss.  Coupling this with his home run on July 5, Sizemore is now officially the second player in the

2009 Spring Training Begins…

Hey Jeremy, don’t be mad at Miguel. You threw that crap ball.  Tigers 9, Indians 2 (Box) Jeremy Sowers served up at least four pitches over the heart of the plate, and two of them went for homers as the Tribe got pounded by the Tigers. Literally taking Sabathia’s place in the rotation, Sowers made way too

“PTBNL”

Buckle up, Tribe fans.  That simple acronym in the title is something that you’re bound to see and hear an awful lot about over the foreseeable future.  The missing information on the C.C. Sabathia deal that we’ve talked about nearly all day long – and possibly the most important part – is that Player to

More Questions Than Answers…

Driving home last night with the trade announcement buzzing in my mind, I tried to answer the questions that kept popping up in my head. Unfortunately, I had more questions than I could answer… the biggest one being how long are the Indians going to suck?  I will concede that C.C. Sabathia and the Indians were not going

Tribe Trade Rumors: Who’s Next?

  With the Tribe dropping their seventh straight game yesterday, it may be a safe assumption that the C.C. Sabathia trade is the first of what will likely be a handful of deals that the Indians make before the trade deadline at the end of this month.  Trading our ace for the Brewers’ top prospect

Au Revoir, Big Fella…We Will Miss You

We say goodbye to the Ace, the leader, and one of the core guys who makes up the heart and soul of the Cleveland Indians, as C.C. Sabathia has been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers. As Scott has already reported, and Rick will be commenting on further later today, the Indians have officially shut the

C.C. Sabathia: Traded to Brewers?

Though slated as the starting pitcher for Tuesday’s game against the Tigers, Anthony Castrovince’s MLB.com blog reports that an unconfirmed deal has been made. According to a Major League source, the Indians and Brewers have completed a trade in which Sabathia, the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner, would be sent to Milwaukee for

Cliff Lee: Your AL All-Star Starting Pitcher

While there was an inking of thought that Anaheim’s Joe Saunders and his 12 wins would be starting for the AL squad in the upcoming All-Star game, a report at Sports Illustrated gives the nod to our very own Cliff Lee.  And deservedly so. Cliff Lee, who had to fight for a job in Cleveland’s

Bullpen Blows Another One

Twins 9, Indians 6 (box) While Aaron Laffey was far from stellar, Tom Mastny was far from a big league pitcher.  Entering the sixth inning with the lead, Mastny allowed four runs (all earned) while retiring only one batter in the process.  That’s really all you need to know about this one, as it led

Bottom-Feeding Front Office Signs Jeff Weaver

Step aside Morgan Ensberg, we have a new underachiever in town.  Typically, I would be excited to hear that the Indians signed a former first-round draft choice.  However, with the recent news, I can’t help but be less than thrilled… The Cleveland Indians today signed RHP JEFF WEAVER to a free agent minor league contract.

Tribe Drops Sixth Straight, “Free Falling”

Twins 12, Indians 3 (box) While C.C. Sabathia’s trade value continues its assent with every strikeout, we’re seeing a nearly perfect negative correlation with Paul Byrd.  At one point, Byrd and then closer Joe Borowski were also considered tradable assets.  Well, we’ve seen JoBo’s designation; and while doing the same with Byrd would not happen,

Joe Borowski: He Gone

In a move that appears to be long overdue: CLEVELAND, OH — The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has recalled RHP JENSEN LEWIS & RHP BRIAN SLOCUM from AAA Buffalo.   To make room for Lewis and Slocum the club has designated RHP JOE BOROWSKI & RHP RICK BAUER for assignment.

Grady Sizemore: History In the Making

We’ve already waived the white flag, and even went on to punctuate it.  If we could photoshop a giant fork into an Indians logo, we would.  But as many losses as this team racks up in what is turning out to be one of the most frustrating seasons on record, you can’t help but cheer

Would You Care to Reconsider?

Just over two months ago, there was an overwhelming argument against bringing Barry Bonds to Cleveland.  I did my best to lay out both sides of the story, but many of you screamed “We don’t want that A-hole!”  Since the time of the post, the Indians have gone 26-35 and proudly sit at the bottom

Exclamation Point…

White Sox 6, Indians 5; 10 Innings (box) Surprised? I doubt it… No, this isn’t a photo from Tuesday night’s game. The Tribe lost again in ten innings, falling to 12.5 games behind the first place White Sox. After dropping all three in Chicago, the Indians get Thursday off while traveling to Minnesota. I should say,
