Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 40 – Bartolo Colon

February 17, 2018 |

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 40 days

There was a point in time nearly a decade ago that the professional career of Bartolo Colon appeared to be at its end. Somehow, with a fraction of the stuff that he had when he hit the pro game with the Cleveland Indians in 1993, he has stayed in the game, been a serviceable pitcher, and is relatively beloved by fans across the nation and the world.

Sure, he has had a long and sometimes successful Major League career, keeping his name in the news during springs and summers since debuting with the Cleveland Indians in 1997. But now, many years removed from a slimmer, more dominant flame-throwing version of himself, Colon now looks like an everyman, resembling more of a middle-aged man who had let himself go and now is attempting to squeeze his dad bod into a pair of baseball pants during some sort of midlife crisis at a winter fantasy camp.

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 41 days

The number 41 has not gotten a lot of use in Indians history, but the last three players to wear it have left a mark on the franchise, including a pair of switch-hitting catchers turned first basemen. Read More

Bauer Earns Win in Arbitration Against Tribe

February 16, 2018 |

After waiting a week for the news to become public, the baseball world learned on Thursday that Tribe starting pitcher Trevor Bauer won his arbitration hearing against the Cleveland Indians.

The word on Bauer’s contract for the coming season finally broke a week after his hearing while a gag order of sorts was in place to prevent any influence over several other comparable starting pitchers’ own arbitration cases that were pending. The 27-year-old right-hander will see a significant jump in his base salary for 2018, as he will be paid $6.525 million. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 42

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 42 days

Major League Baseball retired Jackie Robinson’s number 42 across the game on April 15, 1997, on the 50th anniversary of his monumental breaking of the color barrier. Cleveland reliever Michael Jackson was one of 13 players who were wearing that number at the time and was allowed to continue wearing it, making him the last to call the number his own for the Indians.

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 43 – Josh Tomlin

February 14, 2018 |

Happy pitchers’ and catchers’ reporting day! Our countdown to Opening Day at Did the Tribe Win Last Night has reached 43 as baseball springs back to life for the Tribe from Goodyear, Arizona.

Countdown to Opening Day – 43 days

The number 43 was curiously absent from Jacobs Field/Progressive Field for the majority of its existence, that is until Josh Tomlin came along and debuted on July 27, 2010, throwing seven innings of one-run, three-hit baseball in a win over the New York Yankees. For a starting pitcher, that’s how you start a Major League career.

The only other players to wear it during the new era of Tribe baseball were Chris Nabholz in the park’s inaugural season in 1994 and again in 1998, when a man with strong ties to old Cleveland Stadium, reliever Doug Jones, wore it during his return to the organization. Read More
