4/19 Recap: Blue Jays 5 – Indians 0

Player of the Game Games like this are difficult to find a Player of the Game and that is why the POG stat was invented. Today, Marc Rzepczynski came out on top with 1.1 innings of scoreless baseball. When he entered in the seventh, there was already a runner on base, but Zep stranded him and allowed just one more base runner (one walk) during the rest of his time in the game. His...

Bourn Identity: What’s going on with the Indians center fielder?

A massive debate broke out on Twitter at the end of Friday’s disheartening 3-2 Indians defeat. This time around, it wasn’t actually about attendance. No, it was about Michael Bourn and his eventually failed bunt attempt. After red-hot Lonnie Chisenhall started the bottom of the ninth against the Blue Jays with a double, Bourn attempted to bunt twice and failed each time. On the...

Sophomore pitcher of interest, Danny Salazar, struggles again on Thursday

Danny Salazar took the mound on Thursday, April 17 for the third time as the Cleveland Indians took on the Detroit Tigers. The much-hyped Salzar, with his lightning fast 95.9 MPH fastball average in 2013, was presumed by many a drafter to start 2014 as he finished 2013. So far, through those three outings, Salazar has looked anything but a dominant prospect. In his most recent outing...

Tigers 7, Indians 5: Salazar’s implosion starts Tribe demise

What was thought to be a pitchers duel turned into something unexpected. The sun splashed afternoon at Comerica Park and Detroit had a much different feel than the frigid night before, but with Justin Verlander and Danny Salazar locking horns, the thought was that the fans in attendance would be in for a quick afternoon. What transpired was three hour and thirty-eight minute affair...

Zach McAllister gives Cleveland 6 solid innings and the Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2.

The Cleveland Indians were only a couple of wins away from taking the A.L. Central last season. Just imagine if they could have beaten the Detroit Tigers last year. It would have been the Indians going to the play-off instead of a wild card game. Cleveland Knows that a trip to the post season starts this year with some wins over their central divisional rivals. Last night the Indians...

Top of the order: Where you at?

The Indians have had a rather disappointing beginning to the 2014 season, sitting at 7-7 and fourth place in the AL Central. These early season woes are reminiscent of last season, when the Tribe went 8-13 out of the gate. What has also been a parallel to last year is the top of the batting order’s inability to produce for the Tribe. Specifically, I am talking about Asdrubal Cabrera...

Indians activate Michael Bourn, send down Nyger Morgan

WATCH: Jeff Francoeur victim of great prank by teammates

Clubhouse pranks are as much of a part of baseball as peanuts and Cracker Jack and as far as this one goes…it’s a winner. Late in Spring Training, veteran Jeff Francoeur was released by the Cleveland Indians and, just days later, signed by the San Diego Padres and assigned to the team’s Triple-A affiliate in El Paso.  Up until recently, the outfielder’s teammates had him...
