Series Preview: Indians (60-57) vs. White Sox (60-60)

August 16, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

The Indians won a rain shortened series against the Minnesota Twins this past weekend and looked poised to take advantage of some great pitching by David Huff before the skies opened up and dumped over three inches of rain on Progressive Field. The Indians showed some signs of life, both on Friday and Saturday, banging out 12 and 10 hits respectively but scoring just three runs in each contest. The bullpen pitched lights out and the starters did their thing too. Now, it’s on to another Central Division foe on the South Side of Chicago. The White Sox have clawed their way back to .500 and think they have just as much right to the Central Division Crown. They will not go down without a fight.

Omar Vizquel Still Showing The Glove

August 16, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

When Omar Vizquel was essentially let go from the Cleveland Indians following the 2004 season, the thought many fans had was that the great shortstop would be back in a matter of two or three years – serving in a management role following retirement as an active ball player. No one could have imagined Vizquel, then 37 would play into his mid-40s and still be playing against the Tribe seven years later.

It was a difficult decision for then Indians general manager Mark Shapiro, but he ended up letting the popular Vizquel walk away as a free agent in the winter of 2004. The Tribe was in the middle of a rebuilding period, following great success through the late 1990s. Cleveland also had a young, up-an-coming shortstop prospect in Jhonny Peralta who was ready to break out as one of the top hitters at his position. Although Vizquel wanted to stay and the fans wanted him to play out his career in the Wahoo red, white and blue, the Tribe cut ties with Little O and went for the youth movement.

The Columbus Clippers: Tribesman of the Future

August 15, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

While the Cleveland Indians are battling for a spot in the 2011 playoffs, there is a team just two hours south of the parent club that are looking to repeat as International League and Triple-A National Champions.  The Columbus Clippers (77-45) are, once again, tearing up the International League and hold a 12.5 game lead over the Indianapolis Indians.  They have eight more wins than any other team in the league with just three weeks left before the Playoffs start.

The Clippers are in just their third season as a Cleveland Indians affiliate, serving the Washington Nationals, New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates in years past.  Buffalo used to be home to the Indians’ highest minor league team but moving the team to Columbus just made sense.  Not only is Columbus closer to Cleveland, it also gives the Indians another fan base within the state as they root for the players that hope to, one day, make it to the Big League ballclub.

When it rained for 40 days and 40 nights, Noah collected the animals two by two. Manny Acta will have to rally his troops to endure a stretch a little longer Noah’s.

Shin-Soo Choo singled and Jason Donald walked to start the third. Cabrera followed their lead and crushed a 1-0 pitch from Brian Duensing over the left field wall for his 20th homer of the season.

Could Indians Soon Be For Sale?

August 13, 2011 | | 2 Comments

By Mike Brandyberry

My parents sold their house last summer in a down economy. They’ve known for a couple of years that they were ready to move; my childhood home just became too much work and money for them and they were ready to downsize. They considered waiting until the housing market improved, but it was hard to tell how long that would be or how much money they would have to invest while waiting. So they fixed up their house for a year and put it on the market last summer. Their situation was unique and the house sold in three months.

What if the Dolans are fixing up the Indians to sell?

Tribe Steals Opener From Twins; Indians 3, Twins 2

August 13, 2011 |

 

By Craig Gifford

For seven innings Friday night, the Indians could get plenty of hits. The problem was scoring runs off Minnesota starter Carl Pavano. Once Pavano exited in the bottom of the eighth, the floodgates opened just enough for the Tribe to come away with a 3-2 victory in the first game of three-game set with the Twins at Progressive Field.

The victory kept the Indians within three games of the Central Division’s first-place Tigers, who also won Friday.

Series Preview: Minnesota (52-65) vs. Cleveland (58-57)

August 12, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

The Indians sent the Tigers out of town after taking two of three from the Motor City Kitties to gain a single game in the Central Division standings and winning their first series since taking two of three from the Cincinnati Reds to start the month of July.  Now they welcome in another Central Division foe in Minnesota.  There are two big story lines inside Progressive Field.  One, the Tribe continuing to attempt to gain ground on Detroit and two, Jim Thome coming back to his first team needing just two home runs for the 600 home run milestone.  It will definitely be an exciting weekend down at the ballpark.
