Little Surprise as Tribe Held Without a Rookie of the Year Again

November 13, 2018 |

Shane Bieber did not place in the American League Rookie of the Year voting, nor did Greg Allen, Adam Plutko, or Adam Cimber, as the Cleveland Indians’ long drought without a winner extends back to 1990, despite several high quality candidates over the last three decades. Former Tribe prospect Joey Wendle, traded to Oakland in the Brandon Moss trade in December of 2014, did earn a fourth-place share of this year’s award with 17 vote points.

It was no surprise that the Indians’ 23-year-old right-handed starting pitcher Bieber did not fit into the mix in a season that saw winner Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels wow with 22 homers and a .285 batting average while also going 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in ten starts before being shut down from his rotation work with right elbow issues. New York Yankees wunderkinder Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres finished second and third, respectively. Read More

Charboneau was ‘Super Joe,’ but Just for One Year

November 20, 2015 |

Early 1980 wasn’t a particularly fun time in Cleveland.

Parts of the city were still smoldering wreckage from a mob war. Mills were closing and industry was drying up. The city was coming out of default.

Sports were little better. The Indians were mired in mediocrity, the Browns were a year away from the infamous Red Right 88 and Ted Stepien was trying to prove he could run a professional basketball team into the ground.

But as thoughts turned to Indians spring training, Plain Dealer sportswriter Terry Pluto offered a prophecy about an outfielder in the team’s farm system, saying on January 6, 1980, “You’ll be reading quite a bit about him in the next few months.” Read More
