Countdown to Opening Day – 24 days

Outfielder Matt Joyce is at Tribe camp this spring with the tough task of filling the very big shoes of the last player to wear the number 24 for the Indians, 6’7” reliever Andrew Miller.

Joyce is off to an inauspicious start of his own, going 0-for-12 to start the spring slate with four strikeouts, one walk, and one run batted in over five games. At Goodyear on a non-roster invitation from his minor league deal signed during the second week of February, Joyce has a chance to fill one of the Indians’ outfield voids, but he will have to show a whole lot more at the plate in order to do so. The 34-year-old is an eleven-year veteran and a former 2011 All-Star for the Tampa Bay Rays who had spent the last two years in Oakland with the A’s. He hit a career-high 25 homers in 2017 there before he was limited to 83 games while hitting .208 a season ago. Read More

Ramirez’s 30-30 Season a Feat of Strength

September 13, 2018 |

With his first inning two-out steal of second in his 140th game of the year on Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays, Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez added another accomplishment to his growing resume for MVP consideration as he turned in just the 61st 30 homer-30 stolen base season in Major League Baseball history. In doing so, he also became just the third Indians player to accomplish the feat, joining historic seasons turned in by Joe Carter in 1987 and Grady Sizemore in 2008.

Fans can easily remember the type of game-changing ability that Sizemore had, whether it was with the glove, his speed, or with one swing of the bat. Those old enough to watch Carter in his prime in the late 1980s (tough words to even have to write) saw the same power and speed potential on a nightly basis, before his contribution to Cleveland’s future success revolved not around his production, but around the price the club charged the San Diego Padres to send Carter for several prospect pieces which factored largely in the team’s run through the decade to follow.
