December 14, 2011 |

Today continues our countdown to the start of Indians pitchers and catchers reporting to Goodyear, Arizona on February 20. We’ll count down the days, profiling a former Indian who wore the corresponding number.

The final chapter of Michael Aubrey’s career has yet to be written, but his the chapters involving the Indians seem to be complete. What began as a promising, young career, is now one that is just trying to hang on and get one more chance in the show.

The All-Time Best Cleveland Indians List: Left Fielders

December 13, 2011 | | One Comment

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?

Willingham May Not Be The Right Move For Tribe

December 11, 2011 | | One Comment

Beginning Saturday evening, reports have surfaced that the Cleveland Indians are pursuing right-handed hitting, outfielder Josh Willingham. At first glance, this appears to be the move the Indians have pursued all winter, however, signing the slugger may create more problems than solutions.

According to MLBTradeRumors.com and Indians beat reporter Jordan Bastian, the Indians are one of the leaders to sign the outfielder. The Tribe and Seattle Mariners are believed to be the top two teams with the best chance to sign Willingham. Bastian reports that no formal offer has yet to be made, however.

Pujols Signing Opens First Base Options For Tribe

December 10, 2011 |

The Cleveland Indians were never a player in the Albert Pujols sweepstakes, but his signing with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim could open the door to two trade possibilities to fill the Tribe’s first base needs.

Before signing Pujols, the Angels have two first base possibilities already in Mark Trumbo and Kendrys Morales. Each have different stories, and much different trade values, but one thing is certain, they won’t be playing first base for the Angels any longer. That is reserved for Pujols, who signed a 10-year $254 million contract on Thursday.
