Former Indians Pitcher Waddell Dead at 60

October 3, 2019 | | 2 Comments

Tom Waddell, a pitcher during some tough years for the Cleveland Indians in the mid-1980s, passed away on September 14 after suffering a heart attack. He was just days short of his 61st birthday.

Born in Scotland, Waddell is one of a small number of players in Major League history to come across the pond (49 have represented the United Kingdom professionally, but just 26 have debuted since 1901 according to Baseball-Reference.com). His family moved to New Jersey when he was a child, but after pitching for Manhattan College and with semipro teams in the area, he went undrafted (kidney issues and a right elbow injury hindered his stock). He worked as a clothing salesman for a period of time but eventually had confidence that his arm felt good enough to give baseball a second chance. He impressed Atlanta Braves scouts, including Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, at a tryout and got a minor league contract, starting his professional baseball career. Read More

Tribe Drops Fifth Straight to End Season with Thud; Nationals 8, Indians 2

September 29, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians’ late season collapse concluded with an 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals, sending the team into the offseason on a five-game losing skid.

Looking for a moral victory in a game that had no playoff implications for either team, the Indians sent out the scorching hot Mike Clevinger to the mound for his final start of the season, but he was tagged for six runs while the offense slumped again to close out regular season action. The loss left the Indians with a 93-69 record for the season, the third-best record during Terry Francona’s tenure with the club and tied for the sixth-best mark for the Tribe in a 162-game schedule.

Indians Bench Blown Out by Nats; Nationals 10, Indians 7

September 28, 2019 |

A nine-run second inning was more than plenty for the Washington Nationals on Saturday as they secured home field advantage in Tuesday’s National League Wild Card Game with a 10-7 blowout of the Cleveland Indians.

With meaningful games done for the Indians after being eliminated from 2019 playoff consideration on Friday night, a lineup filled primarily with bench bats put up a bit of a fight on Saturday, but only after Adam Plutko and the Cleveland bullpen were destroyed in a nine-run frame by the Nationals as they rolled to victory. The only blemish for Washington was a subpar performance from Patrick Corbin, their big offseason signing, who was tagged for six runs and was unable to finish five innings in his final regular season start of the year.
