ICYMI at DTTWLN – November 2 to November 8

| On 09, Nov 2015

The first full week of the offseason is over. Just 15 weeks until players have all reported to Arizona and Florida and life becomes happier.

Meanwhile, the offseason drum beats on. Here’s what you may have missed last week…

Mike Brandyberry took an in-depth statistical look at whether or not the Indians have the pieces in place to be a playoff team now. On Tuesday, Bob debated the team option of Ryan Raburn, which was declined by the Indians later in the week. On Wednesday morning, Vince Guerrieri shared how a decision by Indians owner Sunny Jim Dunn in 1920 may have haunted Cleveland’s World Series’ hopes in 1948, 1954, 1995, and 1997. The free agent status of Mike Aviles (Bob), Gavin Floyd (Craig Gifford), and Ryan Webb (Bob), were broken down on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, the futures of arbitration-eligible players Lonnie Chisenhall (Mike) and Josh Tomlin (Bob) were looked into at length.

Bob’s “Today in Tribe History” looked back on a couple of big birthdays and a couple of big awards won by former Tribesmen.

As we step back in time, the story of the 1948 Cleveland Indians continues. Team streak continued to win in bunches and lose in bunches as they go 5-1 in this particular stretch of games covering the dates of May 14th through May 20th. The story also takes a look at whether Ed Klieman and Bill Kennedy can be answers on the pitching staff, the unique bond between Philadelphia’s Lou Brissie and Cleveland’s Gene Bearden (think Purple Heart), and if the Indians will be active at the trade deadline.
