Fresh Brewed Tees: Cleveland Made, Cleveland Pride, Cleveland Fans

August 25, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

If you are from the Cleveland area and you haven’t heard of Fresh Brewed Tees yet, consider this your wakeup call.  Tony Madalone and his staff of designers and printers are churning out some of the most popular t-shirt designs in the city, and the shirts are getting ordered as quickly as they are getting printed.  I have to say, I can’t go downtown without seeing someone wearing a shirt with an Indian feather on the front, which, by the way, is Fresh Brewed Tees best selling design representing the Cleveland Indians.  I was able to speak with Tony and get the inside scoop on Fresh Brewed Tees and his love of Cleveland and the Indians.

Grady Sizemore becomes the second player in Cleveland Indians history to hit 30 homers and steal 30 bases in a season. Joe Carter was the first in 1987. Sizemore homered twice in a 4 – 3 win over the Tigers, … Read More

Tribe Down, But Not Out

August 25, 2011 |

 

By Craig Gifford

Thumpings of 12-7 and 9-2 at the hands of the Seattle Mariners, one of the worst teams baseball, means the Tribe’s dream season and chances of winning the AL Central Division championship have gone up in smoke. Right? ….. Wrong!

It does look bad. Cleveland enters Thursday six games behind the front-running Detroit Tigers, a half game ahead of the Chicago White Sox. With 35 games to play, there is not much room for error on this club at this point. However, even in a dark moment, here are some reasons to stay optimistic.

Put To Sleep By Seattle; Mariners 9, Indians 2

August 25, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Instead of the seventh inning stretch, they should have played Taps. The Seattle Mariners took control early and never looked back, defeating the Indians 9-2 Wednesday afternoon.

What seemed like an improbable run to the playoffs early in the season, turned to a pennant race in the summer months and has now ended with a team that looks clearly out of gas and unable to finish the season with the same level of play they had in April and May.

Dog-Gone Ugly Effort; Mariners 12, Indians 7

August 24, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

The Cleveland Indians had their Puppypalooza at Progressive Field, welcoming 500 dogs to the ballpark for pregame parade, hopefully PETA wasn’t watching the contest or they may feel the animals were treated inhumanely, being forced to watch the contest. The Seattle Mariners defeated the Indians 12-7, and more importantly, probably ended all chances at a postseason birth for the Tribe.

Still A Heartbeat; Indians 7, Mariners 5

August 23, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Yesterday Shin-Soo Choo missed the game to see the birth of his daughter, Abigail, and enjoy the first few breaths and heartbeats with his immediate family. Today, Choo may have given his baseball family a couple more breaths and heartbeats in the American League Central Division race.

Choo’s walkoff, three-run homer, gave the Indians a 7-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

Masterson Takes Control Of Rotation

August 23, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

In two years, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson has gone from the player nobody wanted in the Victor Martinez trade to becoming the ace of the pitching staff. He has gone from a pitcher no one knew what to do with, to the steps of elite-level starter.

In July of 2009, with the Tribe out of contention for a second straight season, Indians management began trading away veteran talent, that would soon command millions of dollars on the open market, for young players with boatloads of potential. Masterson was one of those players. A second round draft pick by the Boston Red Sox in 2006, the flame-throwing right-hander had tons of potential. The biggest question was where would that potential best be suited?

Today In Tribe History; August 23, 1936

August 23, 2011 |

By Vince Guerrieri

A high school phenom took the mound for the Indians against the St. Louis Browns on a Sunday afternoon at League Park 75 years ago today, Aug. 23, 1936.

He was signed off the sandlots of Iowa for a buck and an autographed baseball, and had never played an inning in the minor leagues. The Browns were regarded as the dregs of the American League – the saying was that St. Louis was “first in booze, first in shoes and last in the American League” – but it was still stiffer competition than the 17-year-old hurler had ever seen before.

Non-Save Situation For The Season; Mariners 3, Indians 2

August 23, 2011 |

 

By Mike Brandyberry

In a contest that featured Eric Wedge and Manny Acta as managers, Acta still found a way to finish second in the contest.

Acta’s decision to go to Chris Perez in a non-save situation in the ninth inning, despite his repeated struggles in that role, certainly cost the Indians this evening’s game and possibly their playoff hopes. The Seattle Mariners were able to take the first game of a pivotal series and homestand, 3-2 over the Indians.
