What Happened to Tribe History?

October 6, 2011 |

By Jason Kaminski

This may come off as very opinionated and “rant”-like but I feel it should be said. Why have the Indians’ powers-that-be neglected to build statues for key players in the franchise’s history?

It was announced on September 26th, Jim Thome Day, that the team would be erecting a statue of Thome in the location of his record setting 511 foot homerun. I won’t get into whether or not Thome deserves a statue or not but I will definitely pose the question: why is he only the second Tribe player to have such an honor?

Former Indians Performing Well In Postseason

October 6, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

Last night, in the top of the 7th inning, Ben Francisco drilled a Jaime Garcia pitch over the left field wall at Busch Stadium giving the Philadelphia Phillies all the runs they would need, and get, in their Game 3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.  Francisco’s three run shot was just one of many great things that have happened for former Indians so far in the 2011 playoffs.
 
In the very first game of the postseason, former Indians catcher, Kelly Shoppach, went 3 for 5 with two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI as the Rays trounced the Rangers 9-0 in the series opener.  The Rangers have since gone on to take the series, but it was a great performance none the less.

Under .500, But Still Plenty To Smile About

October 5, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

When the 2011 baseball season started, I think most Indians fans felt the same way: Stay competitive and we will be happy.  Improve on last year and look forward to 2012.  Don’t finish in the basement.
 
All those ideas were great, until the Tribe had one of the best April’s in their history.  Our expectations went from 75-85 wins to 95-105 wins in a matter of weeks.  While it was a nice run, I think too many people, myself included, thought that it would survive.  Unfortunately, due to numerous injuries to key members of the team and a plague of inconsistencies, the large lead that the Tribe had built quickly diminished and we were left to wonder what could have been.

Today in Tribe History: October 4, 1948

October 4, 2011 |

By Vince Guerrieri

The 1948 Indians had a formidable pitching lineup, including future hall of famers Bob Feller and Bob Lemon.  Satchel Paige, a midseason signing and another future hall of famer, won six games down the stretch for the Indians. But 63 years ago today, on Oct. 4, 1948, player-manager Lou Boudreau went with Gene Bearden for the Indians’ 155th game of the year.

The Tribe would be playing the Boston Red Sox in a tiebreaker game at Fenway Park, in the first playoff in American League history. Bearden, a rookie knuckleballer, had won 19 games that season, but he was pitching on just a day’s rest, and as a lefthander, would have a tougher go of it at Fenway, with its short left field.
