Fans Must Stay Patient With Indians’ Free Agent Pursuit

December 16, 2011 |

You can’t fault Cleveland fans for being impatient, they’ve waited for a long time. Indians fans, specifically, have been waiting since 1948 for that championship parade down East 9th street, and more recently, just been waiting for a chance to become playoff contenders again.

With only one trip to the postseason in the last decade and the front office promise to, “spend when the time is right,” fans felt this could be the Indians’ winter to make a splash in the offseason.  After the Ubaldo Jimenez trade on July 30, the message was clear. The Tribe’s window is open for 2012 and 2013.

The All-Time Best Cleveland Indians List: Left Fielders

December 13, 2011 |

The Cleveland Indians have a storied franchise that began back in 1901 when they were established in the American League. Over the years players have come and gone through the organization that have made a lasting impact. Some of these players have been talked up and others have not been talked about enough. I have decided to put a stamp on who I believe the best Tribe players were at their respective positions. Over the next several weeks I will be posting my Top Five Tribe Players at each position. Through research, analysis and opinion I will rank the players I see to be the best. I have a specific criteria I am looking for. For starters, I will only include players that played from 1901 and on. No Cy Young type players. Second, the pitchers eligible needed to have played at least five seasons and position players needed at least three seasons in a Cleveland uniform. Last, I took into account comparisons of what might have been. Sometimes players play so long that their legend becomes inflated or they play on terrible teams that do not get their accomplishments recognized like they should be. With that said I hope you enjoy these lists and I encourage you to give your own opinions as well. So without further adieu, I give you the top five Indians players of all-time at each position.

By Matthew Van Wormer

Today, we finish off the American League East in our Offseason Swap Series as I spoke with Mike D from Yankees Fans Unite and got his take on the end of 2011 and what to look for from the Yankees in 2012.  When you are a team like the Yankees, expectations are always high and not meeting those expectations is always a disappointment.  So, without further ado, here is my blog swap with Mike D.

DTTWLN? 1 – The Yankees came short of their ultimate goal for 2011, and every year, winning the World Series.  What could New York have done better to move forward in the post season?
