That Time the Tribe Nearly Moved to Seattle

September 20, 2015 | | One Comment

Last Sunday, Did The Tribe Win Last Night? looked back to 1964 – a year remembered positively in Cleveland as the year of the city’s last professional sports championship. It could have also been the year that the once-beloved Indians left town, had it not been for swift intervention by the Cleveland media and the city’s fans.

When pressed, Gabe Paul continued to skirt the claims of the Indians’ potential relocation, although more and more links between the Tribe’s president, treasurer, and general manager and the Seattle region became apparent.

Paul did not deny receiving a proposal from KOMO, an ABC affiliate television station in Seattle, but was quick to state that the club had received offers from other places as well. One of Paul’s close friends was Dewey Soriano, the president of the Pacific Coast League. That relationship could have provided Paul with the inside track on the level of interest the region had in the game of baseball, beyond just simple minor league attendance numbers. On top of that, the Indians’ top minor league ball club played in Portland, Oregon.

Meanwhile, Paul met with Cleveland Mayor Ralph Locher and, following the meeting, shared with reporters that any team that wished to move to another city that currently housed a minor league franchise needed to notify that locale during the month of October, giving credence to the potential of a move.

Series Preview #47: Chicago White Sox (69-76) at Cleveland Indians (72-73)

September 18, 2015 |

Normally, splitting a four-game series with the team with the best record in your league would be considered a successful set against an opposing club.

Somehow, this week’s split by the Cleveland Indians (72-73) against the Kansas City Royals felt like a major letdown, especially with so much on the line for the Tribe in the final weeks of the 2015 regular season. It was not the end all be all for them, however, as two of the three teams above them in the standings took losses, so the team is continuing to tread water in the American League Wild Card race.

The Tribe won Monday night, 8-3, aided by three RBI from Lonnie Chisenhall. The offense returned to a dormant status on Tuesday in a 2-0 loss. They were victors on Wednesday, 5-1, as Francisco Lindor drove in four. Omar Infante’s career day put seven of the eight Royals runs on the board on Thursday night as Kansas City earned the series split with an 8-4 final. Read More
