Hafner Faces Final Season In Tribe Uniform

March 16, 2012 |

Each week through Spring Training the DTTWLN staff will profile and break down the players in camp for the Indians at Goodyear, Arizona and examine their potential roles for the season to come. This week, we continue our Goodyear coverage by breaking down the players who are most in need of a bounce back season if the Tribe is to make the playoffs.

By Christian Petrila

One of the last remaining pieces from the 2007 Indians that made it to within one game of the World Series is Travis Hafner, and his clock is ticking.

Arguably one of the biggest busts since his contract extension, Hafner is due to make $13 million in 2012. The Indians have a team option on him for 2013, but it’s probably a safe bet that it will be declined.

Top 10 Promotions Coming to Canal Park This Season

March 15, 2012 |

By Sean Tuttle

If you have ever been to a minor league game, you know that most of the attraction is what happens in between innings, the giveaways, and the contest prizes that you can win.

The Cleveland Indians’ Double-A affiliate, Akron Aeros, has been a place where families, kids, and college students can enjoy an evening of fun and baseball at a price that is extremely affordable. It is actually cheaper to go to Canal Park than it is to go out to the movies.

Veteran Lowe Looking For Comeback Year

March 15, 2012 |

 

Each week through Spring Training the DTTWLN staff will profile and break down the players in camp for the Indians at Goodyear, Arizona and examine their potential roles for the season to come. This week, we continue our Goodyear coverage by breaking down the players who are most in need of a bounce back season if the Tribe is to make the playoffs.

By Sean Tuttle

Derek Lowe is coming off of quite arguably his worst season as a big leaguer. After finishing 9-17 with the Atlanta Braves last season, the 38 year old World Series Champion, is looking for a comeback season and anchor down the tribes pitching rotation.

Lowe was drafted in the 8th round of the 1991 amateur draft by the Seattle Mariners. He was then part of a deadline trade that sent he and Jason Varitek to the Boston Red Sox in 1997. While in Boston, Lowe would be instrumental in bringing a World Series title back to Boston. In 2004, Lowe started the rally in Game 4 ALDS pitching 5.1 innings and a no decision, and returned to start Game 7 with a win. He was 3-0 in the 2004 postseason with only one no decision.

Lowe Shines Against San Francisco; Giants 2, Indians 2

March 15, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

In a month where winning and losing doesn’t really matter, the Tribe has become very good at accomplishing neither. Wednesday the Tribe played to their second straight tie, this time tying the San Francisco in ten innings, 2-2.

Offensively, the Tribe scattered nine hits throughout the lineup but the majority of the production came from Asdrubal Cabrera. Cabrera had three hits, including a double in the contest and Trevor Crowe came off the bench and chipped in two hits of his own. Crowe is battling for an outfield spot, but probably more just to get back on Manny Acta’s radar since he missed almost all of last season with injuries.  Shin-Soo Choo remained on his hot spring and Matt LaPorta also had a double.

Tribe Expects Choo To Jump Start Offense

March 14, 2012 |

Each week through Spring Training the DTTWLN staff will profile and break down the players in camp for the Indians at Goodyear, Arizona and examine their potential roles for the season to come. This week, we continue our Goodyear coverage by breaking down the players who are most in need of a bounce back season if the Tribe is to make the playoffs.

By Craig Gifford

If the Indians are to seriously contend with the Detroit Tigers this year in the AL Central Division they will need a spike in offense. While some fans hoped the Indians would make a push for some serious offensive fire power in free agency, Tribe management really did little in that regard. The key position-player signing was defensive-minded first baseman Casey Kotchman. However, a surge in run-scoring could come from in-house in the form of renewed health and focus from Shin-Soo Choo.

Steinbrenner’s Near Purchase Of The Tribe

March 13, 2012 |

By Vince Guerrieri

He was the son of a collegiate track star who went on to become a Cleveland shipping magnate.

He was an assistant football coach for Woody Hayes at Ohio State, and former Brown Lou Saban at Northwestern.

And George Steinbrenner was almost the owner of the Cleveland Indians.

In 1966, Vernon Stouffer bought the Indians. Stouffer and his brother Gordon made their fortune in restaurants and then frozen foods. Five years later, after Stouffer’s merged with Litton, making him a fortune, and then Litton’s stock prices dropped, depleting his deep pockets, he was ready to sell the team.

Can Sizemore Provide Second Half Punch?

Each week through Spring Training the DTTWLN staff will profile and break down the players in camp for the Indians at Goodyear, Arizona and examine their potential roles for the season to come. This week, we continue our Goodyear coverage by breaking down the players who are most in need of a bounce back season if the Tribe is to make the playoffs.

By Craig Gifford

If any player has ever been in more need of a bounce-back season than center fielder Grady Sizemore, you would be hard-pressed to find that guy.

The former All-Star, who spent the majority of the last three years battling injuries and the last two on the disabled list far more than on the field, was hopeful of a career resurrection this year. The Cleveland Indians were hopeful of the same.
