Game Preview: Oakland (60-74) vs. Cleveland (66-65)

The Indians were finally able to make up some ground in the Central Division race last night as they took down the Oakland Athletics on the same night that the Detroit Tigers lost to the Kansas City Royals.  With the Chicago White Sox also winning last night, the Central Division now has the Tigers leading by five games over Chicago and five and a half games over Cleveland.  The Indians will take the field tonight, again trying to narrow the gap.

It’s Not Over!

The highlight of my existence as an Indians fan came on Oct. 26, 1995, when I, my brother, my father and 43,000 of our closest friends were at Jacobs Field for Game 5 of the World Series.
The Tribe’s backs were up against the wall. They were down 3 games to 1, and a loss that night would send them off into the winter. They were facing Greg Maddux, the NL Cy Young Award winner that year (his fourth straight), who had beaten them already in the series opener.
Before the game, the JumboTron flashed a scene from Animal House, where John Belushi is trying to pump up his fraternity brothers.

Injuries Continue To Hamper Tribe

August 30, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

With all the injuries, bad luck and trades that have swept through the Cleveland Indians rotation this season, there were two constants. Justin Masterson and Josh Tomlin formed a top of the otation comparable to most around baseball. Masterson a true ace and Tomlin an innings eater who would keep a team in every ball game.

After that has been a run of starters who have been struggling or have limited experience.

Ozzie Guillen, Please Shut Up

August 30, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

So, Ozzie Guillen thinks that we Tribe fans are bad people for booing Jim Thome whenever we got the chance over the course of the nine years that he didn’t wear an Indians uniform.  He also thinks we are hypocrites for giving him a standing ovation when he finally made his triumphant return to the shores of Lake Erie.  Should Tribe fans have blamed Thome as much as they did when he left for more money and the East Coast?  No.  Should we have pointed some of our bitterness to ownership rather than the man who said he would never leave?  Yes.  That being said, Ozzie Guillen still needs to shut his big yap.

Huff Puffs And Blows Away Oakland; Indians 2, Athletics 1

August 30, 2011 |

 

By Matt Van Wormer

Pitching has been the strongest aspect of this Indians team all season long. Monday night was no different as David Huff went six strong innings giving up just three hits over that time. Huff bounced back in magnificent fashion after a horrible start in Detroit nine days ago. He struck out four and walked just two to earn his second win of the season as the Tribe pulled out the victory, 2-1.

Brandon McCarthy was just as good in this game, throwing a complete game and giving up just two runs on five hits. McCarthy also set a career high in strikeouts as 10 Indians hitters either whiffed at or watched strike three. It took a couple of two out hits and a long home run to beat McCarthy on a night when he had very good stuff.

Game Preview: Oakland (60-73) vs. Cleveland (65-65)

The Indians squandered opportunities in yesterday’s game against the Kansas City Royals and it cost them more than a chance to gain on the Detroit Tigers.  With the Chicago White Sox earning a sweep against the Seattle Mariners, who couldn’t seem to lose last week in Cleveland, the Indians are now sitting in third place in the division, half a game behind the ChiSox and still 6.5 games behind the Tigers.  With Oakland coming to town for four games, the Indians bats will have to wake up and make the proper moves to ensure lots of wins this week before heading out on the road.

Prospects Travel Many Paths To Big Leagues

August 29, 2011 |

 

By Craig Gifford

When it comes to rookies, most baseball teams have a plan and like to stick to it. Usually a rookie ready for a promotion to the big leagues, will see a call up when rosters expand in September. This allows the player to get his feet wet in the majors while facing teams who are typically out of the playoff or already have their postseason spot secured. Either way, the young player is probably not going to see the best of the other team, but still gets to player under major league management, in major league parks and in front of major league crowds.

The other scenario is a team knows full well a rookie is ready for big time and he goes into the season on the major league roster.

Chances Squandered Away; Royals 2, Indians 1

August 29, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

All year Justin Masterson has pitched like an ace for the Cleveland Indians. All year, he has gotten no run support.

The same was true Sunday afternoon as he again went six innings strong, but the Tribe bats mustered only a single run in a 2-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals.

Game Preview: Kansas City vs. Cleveland

August 28, 2011 |

 

By Matt Van Wormer

The Indians look to sweep away the pesky Royals today as they take the field for an afternoon battle at Progressive Field.  Last night’s game was full of excitement as Jim Thome hit his first home run in an Indians uniform since September 28th, 2002.  It was his 335th Home Run as a member of the Tribe and it helped the Indians out in a game they had to win.  Asdrubal Cabrera supplied some magic as well, hitting a three-run Homer that gave the Indians the lead in the bottom of the eighth.  Chris Perez used a Houdini routine in the top of the ninth to slam the door shut on the Royals.
