Is the Aviles Era Over in Cleveland?

November 4, 2015 |

Every now and then, there are reminders in life that professional sports are just a game. They may be a source of entertainment for some and a source of employment for others, but in the end, there are things much more important.

Mike Aviles and the Cleveland Indians received that reminder this season as the Tribe’s super-utility man had his focus diverted throughout the season to the support of his four-year-old daughter Adriana and her battle with leukemia. Read More

The Curious Case of Francona Bunting

October 31, 2015 |

When a team is not playing up to expectations, even good managers will get their fair share of criticisms for the problems on the field.

While some problems worked themselves out over the course of the year – namely the bullpen and the defensive play behind them and the rest of the pitching staff – the offense was a mystery and a dilemma throughout the 161 games logged by the Cleveland Indians this season. Some blame fell on the lack of production from the players on the roster and some fell on that mystical “right-handed power bat” that fans have clamored for over the last decade. But in regards to things that manager Terry Francona was critiqued heavily about, the decision to bunt and bunt frequently was often lauded for both its use and effectiveness (or more so, its ineffectiveness).

Series Preview #32: Kansas City Royals (59-38) at Cleveland Indians (45-52)

July 27, 2015 |

If this is not rock bottom, it is scary to think what could lie ahead for the Cleveland Indians with 65 more games left on the docket for the 2015 season.

A month ago, it looked as though the Indians (45-52) had reached their lowest point when they went into Baltimore and were swept by the Orioles. At the time, the three game skid, capped by a pair of shutouts to conclude the series, pushed an extended run of bad play to seven losses in a nine-game span. They then spun a five-game winning streak on the road against Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh to gain four games on the division leader, but since have played inconsistent baseball to put it in an extremely family friendly context.

Finding the Center of the Indians Defensive Struggles

July 6, 2015 |

The Indians wake up this morning at 38-43, nine games back of the Kansas City Royals and one of Major League Baseball’s most disappointing teams at the halfway mark of the season.

Despite winning five in a row, and making up four games in the standings in five days, the Tribe lost the last two games of their 10-game road trip in Pittsburgh and are still nine games back of first place. They’re just 4.5 games back of the last Wild Card spot, but five teams are between them and that spot, making the climb to the playoffs a very difficult one in the second half. Unfortunately, if you look down, Cleveland is just two games ahead of Oakland’s pace for the worst record in the American League.

Needless to say, this isn’t what the Indians expected when they were scoffing at Sports Illustrated jinxes in March.

Series Preview #15: Texas Rangers (21-23) at Cleveland Indians (20-23)

May 25, 2015 |

With the way the Cleveland Indians played throughout the majority of the first two months of the year, the following statement seems almost improbable to utter.

The Indians have won six straight. I repeat…the Indians have won six straight.

Cleveland (20-23) may not be back in the fray in the American League Central, but it at least has pulled itself back up near the .500 mark, a promising sign as the month of May rapidly comes to its conclusion. Playing well against teams outside of the division, they will host the AL West’s Texas Rangers for three games beginning Monday afternoon. Read More
