Indians and Sizemore Headed For One Last Dance?

November 20, 2011 |

The Cleveland Indians and Grady Sizemore. Just like high school boyfriend and girlfriend.

Originally, all the other kids were envious when they walked down the hallway together, holding hands. They seemed like the perfect match, quickly committing to each other for years to come. They were the couple everyone wanted to be, dedicated to each other and sharing the same ideas about the future. Together, they win Homecoming King and Queen. Their parents (Mark Shapiro) refer to them as, “once in a generation.” What could possibly go wrong?

Sarbaugh the Key To Clippers Development and Success

November 18, 2011 |

The Cleveland Indians, who went from being a bad team in 2010 to an average team 2011, are hoping to make the leap to the next level in 2012. With the major midseason trade for Ubaldo Jimenez and resent acquisition of veteran starting pitcher Derek Lowe, Tribe management is showing the desire to win now. The team is even likely to make more of a splash in free agency than in most offseasons.

While trades and free agents have and will add veteran leadership to the club, the Indians are still expected to be young. The Tribe will remain bolstered and built on fresh faces like Lonnie Chisenhall, Jason Kipnis, Carlos Santana, Josh Tomlin and Vinnie Pestano, who were all in the minor leagues within the last two years.

Columbus Clippers Provide Tribe With Players Now And For Future

November 17, 2011 | | One Comment

 

 

The Cleveland Indians gave their fans plenty of reasons to be excited this past summer. They improved their win total from a scant 69 wins in 2010 to an adequate 80 in 2011. That’s reason enough for excitement in looking forward. The Columbus Clippers, Cleveland’s Triple-A affiliate, have given Tribe brass plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the future, as well.

Cleveland’s 2011 campaign was marked with a number of players who made their Major League debuts after promotions from Columbus. From expected superstars in Lonnie Chisenhall and Jason Kipnis, to surprises like Ezequiel Carrera, the pipeline between the Clippers and Indians was quite active. From those players, and several others, Cleveland fans got to see the future appears to be paved with positive things. Even the players who Indians fans did not have the pleasure to see this season are soon to come in the next year and give promise as the back-to-back Triple-A champion Clippers. They have a talented bunch of players waiting and chomping at the bit to contribute to what the Indians hope will be a playoff contender next year and the following several, as well.

The All-Time Best Cleveland Indians List: First Basemen

November 15, 2011 |

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.

Offseason Swap Series: Baltimore Orioles

November 14, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

Now that we’re done with the American League Central, let’s move on to the East which could very well be the toughest division in baseball.  The Baltimore Orioles have been a floundering organization since the Indians took them to the brink in the 1997 American League Championship Series.  I asked Lauren Tilley of BirdsWatcher.com five questions about the Orioles and she has some great insight to the Baltimore ballclub.  She has also asked me some questions about the Tribe and when I get those answered, we’ll be sure to get you connected with the link to that story.  So, on to the Q&A!
