Game Preview: Cleveland (72-73) vs. Texas (84-64)

September 14, 2011 |

 

By Matt Van Wormer

Last night Justin Masterson gave up three home runs to the Texas Rangers as they took down the Indians by the final score of 10-4.  Just to put those three home runs in perspective, Masterson had given up just seven all season long heading into last night’s start.  Matt Harrison pitched well for the Rangers and earned his 12th win while Masterson fell to 11-10.

Is Jack Hannahan In the 2012 Picture?

September 14, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

When the Cleveland Indians signed Jack Hannahan this past offseason, it was with the idea he was simply going to keep third base occupied until Lonnie Chisenhall was ready to be called up from AAA Columbus. Once Chisenhall got his promotion he would be groomed as the everyday player at the hot corner, while most thought the journeyman Hannahan would be jettisoned on to his next landing spot by season’s end.

Well, in a summer full of many twists and turns for the Tribe, one of the biggest has been Hannahan. He is going to still til the end of the season and chances are he will be in town a little while longer than that. The 31-year-old, who previously spent brief major league tenures in Detroit, Toronto and Oakland, is not a free agent this coming offseason, but is eligible for arbitration. Indians management would be wise to bring back for at least one more year.

Murphy’s Homers Bring Dark Cloud To Tribe; Rangers 10, Indians 4

September 14, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Justin Masterson, who had only allowed seven home runs all season, looked like an overworked and tired starter in the Texas heat Tuesday evening, as he allowed three home runs and the Texas Rangers won the first of a three game series, 10-4.

David Murphy helped the Rangers take an early lead. He hit a solo home run in the bottom of the second to give the Rangers an early 2-0 lead. The Indians answered Murphy’s bomb with a Carlos Santana homer in the top of the fourth inning, however, Murphy would hit a towering blast in the bottom of the inning to keep the Rangers ahead.

Tribe Still Has Something to Play For

September 13, 2011 |

By Jason Kaminski

As the Indians enter the last few weeks of the season they are most likely left wondering what happened? After coming out of the gates scorching, the team lost momentum steadily from June on. They now sit tied for second place with Chicago at 72-72, a towering 11.5 games behind Detroit. So what is there left to play for? Time to bag it right? Wrong.

Big Pieces of Trade In Play Over Weekend

September 12, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

When the Indians swung the deal for Ubaldo Jimenez before the July 31st trade deadline, the reaction was split about 50/50 across baseball and even here at DTTWLN?.  Many thought the Indians were giving up too much with their prospects while others felt that they were giving up the unknown for a sure thing.  All three of the main parts of that trade were in action this weekend as Alex White and Drew Pomeranz both started for the Rockies and Jimenez hit the mound for the Tribe.

Tribe Salvage Series Split; Indians 7, White Sox 3

September 11, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

The Cleveland Indians jumped out to an early lead and put the Chicago White Sox away late, winning 7-3 on Sunday afternoon. The Tribe used some faces that haven’t had huge roles much of the season to earn the victory.

Lonnie Chisenhall and Luis Valbuena each singled in the top of the second inning to set the table for a run scoring single by Trevor Crowe. Crowe singled home Chisenhall, then Lou Marson doubled to deep center to score Valbuena and Crowe, giving the Indians an early 3-0 lead.

Did The Tribe Win Last Night Remembers September 11, 2001

September 11, 2011 |

Ten years ago today, terrorists high-jacked four different planes, crashing them into the World Trade Center and Pentagon before the fourth plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It is a day no American will ever forget. Instead of talking Indians baseball this morning, the DTTWLN staff shares their memories of that tragic day.

Ryan Hohman: I was a senior in high school, sitting in history class, when the news came in that the first tower had been hit. Shortly after class ended and I went home. At the time I was taking college courses, so on off days I had a 2 hour break for lunch. This was an off day. I went home and told my mom what happened. I remember the shocked, puzzled look on her face when she reponded, “What?” She came into the living room right as the plane hit the Pentagon.
