The All-Time Best Cleveland Indians: Closers

October 25, 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 players eligible needed to have played at least five seasons in a Cleveland uniform. No Gaylord Perry’s. 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.

Thome Speaks Of Past, Present and Future With Cleveland City Club

October 25, 2011 |

Monday afternoon Jim Thome added his name to another elite list, few baseball players have achieved when he spoke to the City Club of Cleveland. Thome became only the second Major League Baseball player to speak to the group, joining Babe Ruth.

The nearly hour long speech, moderated by Tom Hamilton, and question and answer can be heard in its entirety on istream, and has been reported upon and picked apart for nearly 24 hours already but I found several things interesting from the 41-year old slugger. Many of Thome’s comments can easily be interpreted.

Offseason Swap Series: Minnesota Twins

October 24, 2011 |

 

By Matt Van Wormer

The Twin Cities were not a happy place this season as the Twins fell to the cellar in the Central Division, one year removed from the Division title that saw them win 94 games and score 781 runs.  Injuries, injuries and, well, injuries were a thorn in the side of a team that returned most of the same guys that helped them win the division by six games in 2010.  I had some questions about the Twins and Seth Stohs of SethSpeaks.net was kind enough to give me the answers that will tell us about the future of the Twins, as well as some of his thoughts on the season past.

DTTWLN? – 1. Finishing in the cellar was definitely not Ron Gardenhire’s plan at the outset of the season.  Is he on the hot seat heading into the 2012 season?

Previous Firesale Has Helped Build Contender, Except One

October 22, 2011 |

 

Over the last several years, the Cleveland Indians management has been ridiculed for trading away All-Stars for unproven talent. From 2008 – 2010, the Tribe traded away top tier players for minor league prospects because those big names were on the verge of making even bigger money. Ownership has been criticized for being “cheap.”

Indians Could Shake Up Bullpen In 2012

October 21, 2011 |

 

This season the Cleveland Indians bullpen was the anchor of the team, keeping them in the playoff chase while injuries took place all around them. Despite all the Indians trips to the disabled list, the bullpen remained the same seven pitchers most of the season. However, by Opening Day the bullpen could see a shakeup.

Not Your Big Market World Series

October 20, 2011 |

This year’s World Series is one Cleveland Indians fans should have no problem getting into.

Tribe faithful should be be able to empathize with Rangers and Cardinals fans and see fellow fan bases, as well as players and coaches who have come up just short so many times over the years.

Unlike seasons where teams like the Yankees, Red Sox, Phillies or another major market has been in the Fall Classic, Indians fans should be able to see some similarities in their team’s history and that of the 2011 participants.
