Cabrera Ca-Bombs Late Homer; Indians 8, Royals 7

August 28, 2011 |

 

By Mike Brandyberry

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a three run home run in the bottom of the eighth to help lead the Indians past the Kansas City Royals 8-7. Cabrera had help from new lineup addition, Jim Thome, who also hit his first home run in his Cleveland homecoming.

Fausto Carmona demonstated both sides of his split personality on the mound Saturday evening, motoring through the first three innings with ease. However, in the fourth inning, he gave up three runs, followed by another in the fourth and setting the stage in the seventh before giving way to Tony Sipp. Carmona allowed six runs, five earned on eight hits in six and one-third innings.

Game Preview: Kansas City (54-78) vs. Cleveland (64-64)

August 27, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

While the “Thomecoming” didn’t go exactly as planned for Jim Thome last night (0-4, 2 K), the emotion in the building was palpable as the Indians were able to squeak out the 2-1 victory over the Central Division cellar dwellers in front of a packed house that welcomed back their prodigal son with open arms and voices.  The Tribe will look to keep things rolling in a positive direction and put another tally in the win column at Progressive Field tonight.  It will be a rematch of sorts as the two pitchers that went head-to-head on July 31st in Cleveland go at each other again.

“Batting fourth for your Cleveland Indians …. Jim Thome!”

Yes, those are words Cleveland sports fans became fondly familiar with in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Starting last night, those same fans – and some … Read More

Thomecoming Overshadowed By Ubaldo; Indians 2, Royals 1

August 27, 2011 |

 

By Cody Gunselman

Can Jim Thome bring back the early season form and even the magic of the 1990s to the ailing Cleveland Indians, who on Friday placed Michael Brantley and Josh Tomlin on the disabled list? He didn’t quite do it himself Friday,going 0-4 with two strikeouts, but you could feel the excitement at sold out Progressive Field in the Indians’ 2-1 win over Kansas City.

And thoughThome did not have the homecoming some people expected, the Indians still made his presence felt throughout the game by sporting his traditional high socks, which could possibly become a staple if the team continues to win.

Game Preview: Kansas City (54-77) vs. Cleveland (63-64)

Ubaldo Jimenez trying to get back on track?  The Indians being under .500 for the first time since being 1-2?  The fact that the lowly Royals seem to give the Indians fits whenever they play them?  Nope.  None of these story lines are the biggest of the night.  That distinction goes to the return of T25: The Thomenator.
The Indians claimed Thome off waivers from the Minnesota Twins, supposedly on Wednesday around 1 in the afternoon.  Manager Manny Acta said that he is excited to have Thome available and plans on hitting him in the cleanup spot, “if that’s ok with (Thome).”  The Indians don’t expect Thome to be a savior and fix everything that has been going wrong but it will definitely bring a spark to the ballpark and give the clubhouse some great veteran leadership.

You Can’t Spell “Thome” without “Home”

I can still remember the days of my youth sitting in the newly built Jacobs Field with my father. He had purchased season tickets in 1993 in preparation for what was to come. We would go to about a game a month since we were in a group and our seats were in section 561. It was the first real taste of a winning team that was connected to my hometown in my life. Sure, the Browns and Cavs had runs in the 80’s but I was too young to understand it all or fully appreciate it.

He’s Baaaaack!

August 26, 2011 | | One Comment

By Matt Van Wormer

When Jim Thome left the Indians after the 2002 season (Yeah, it really was nine years ago), I was bitter.  I was angry that this man who said he wanted to stay in Cleveland and that money didn’t matter made it seem like all that mattered was money.  In my 19 year old eyes, Thome lied to me.  Not to anyone else, just me.  I hated Jim Thome.  I hated the Phillies because Jim Thome played for them.  The following summer, I was in Chicago watching the Cubs play the Phillies and people were congregated by the visiting dugout.  I went down there and yelled at Jim Thome for not signing my ticket stub.  I told him we didn’t miss him in Cleveland.  I was the liar.

If you are from the Cleveland area and you haven’t heard of Fresh Brewed Tees yet, consider this your wakeup call.  Tony Madalone and his staff of designers and printers are churning out some of the most popular t-shirt designs in the city, and the shirts are getting ordered as quickly as they are getting printed.  I have to say, I can’t go downtown without seeing someone wearing a shirt with an Indian feather on the front, which, by the way, is Fresh Brewed Tees best selling design representing the Cleveland Indians.  I was able to speak with Tony and get the inside scoop on Fresh Brewed Tees and his love of Cleveland and the Indians.
