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.

Tribe Building Contender Through Trades And Recent Draft Picks

October 19, 2011 |

 

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been a mess of a team since going to the NLCS in 1992. The Cleveland Indians have been up and down since the 2000s began. The Tampa Bay Rays have been serious title contenders for about half a decade. Three teams, three similarly small markets, three vastly different levels of success.

How is it that one team that spends $50 million dollars a year can be so much better off than another? Why can the Rays maintain a high level of success while losing big-name free agents to larger markets and the Indians have to keep reloading and the Pirates have not figured it out in 20 years?

The All-Time Best Cleveland Indians: Starting Pitcher

October 18, 2011 |

By Jason Kaminski

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.

Offseason Swap Series: Chicago White Sox

October 17, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

As all of us baseball fans prepare to endure the inevitable off season, one way we are going to try and feed your baseball fandom is with a weekly series with another blog from around the league.  We start off with the Central Division foe, Chicago White Sox.  Big changes are taking place on the south side of the Windy City and we caught up with James Fagan, who writes the White Sox Observer and asked him some questions that will give us some insight about what to expect from the White Sox in 2012.

DTTWLN? – 1. Ozzie Guillen is out and Robin Ventura is in.  Two completely different men with what will surely be different managerial styles.  Was Robin Ventura the right choice to replace Ozzie Guillen as the manager of the White Sox?
