Series Preview #28: Oakland Athletics (39-49) at Cleveland Indians (41-44)

July 10, 2015 |

Once again, the Cleveland Indians have climbed back within striking distance of being back at even. A sweep this weekend could bring them into the All-Star break back at the .500 mark and make the second half playoff hunt a little easier to tackle.

The Indians (41-44) may welcome the opportunity to face a sub-.500 team for the first time in over a month. The last time the Indians played an opponent who had a losing record was the Seattle Mariners when they came into Cleveland on June 9th.

Despite the tough schedule over the last month, they were not slowed by the Houston Astros this week. All-Star Dallas Keuchel dealt the club their third straight loss to open the series on Monday, as a four-run first inning guided him to a 9-4 win over the Tribe. The Indians claimed each of the next three, winning a 2-0 shutout on Tuesday night, a 4-2 win on Wednesday, and a 3-1 final Thursday night to capture the series and to send the AL West’s first-place Astros away with a 2-5 record for the year against the fourth-place Indians.

First-Round Pick Aiken Signs with Tribe: A Look at Other First-Round Picks in Tribe History

June 20, 2015 |

On Friday, the Indians signed their first-round pick of the 2015 draft in left-handed pitcher Brady Aiken, who famously was 2014’s number one all-around draftee choice of the Houston Astros, but did not sign after failing to come to terms with the Astros last year, and then undergoing Tommy John surgery this past March. Despite his health concerns, the Indians still took a chance on Aiken, who last year became the first number one pick not to sign since Tim Belcher in 1983.

According to reports, Aiken is already in Arizona rehabbing his elbow at the time of his signing.

Last year, Aiken was reportedly offered $6.5 million to sign with the Astros, but tensions grew high when doctors discovered an “irregularity in the ulnar collateral ligament” in Aiken’s throwing arm, according to Sports Illustrated. The Astros came back offering less money, which Aiken turned down, instead deciding to see how he would fair in this year’s draft. Read More

All-Star Fosse’s Collision Still a Hot Topic after 44 Years

July 16, 2014 |

For Cincinnati Reds fans, the 1970 All-Star Game is probably a source of pride. For Cleveland Indians fans, the game is a source of bitter feelings.

The 1970 Mid-Summer Classic was played at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati and was the host of one of baseball’s most memorable moments. After the National League had staged a three-run, ninth inning comeback to send the game into extra innings, Reds superstar Pete Rose barreled into Indians catcher Ray Fosse to score the game’s winning run. The Senior Circuit won the game by a score of 5-4 and the man they called Charlie Hustle was a hero in front of his hometown fans.

Rose was not put on a heroic pedestal in Cleveland, however. Read More

Catching Up With Ray Fosse

January 29, 2014 |

If it wasn’t for bad luck, former Indian Ray Fosse might have had no luck at all.

Fosse was talented and fortunate enough to break into professional baseball at a young age, but the catcher is remembered mostly for bad luck incidents that might have somewhat derailed such a promising career.

“You don’t want people to think that you are snake bitten,” Fosse said.  “Those weren’t just whims…there were reasons that I did get injured.”

Fosse is unquestionably best remembered for getting barreled over at home plate by Cincinnati Reds star Pete Rose in the 1970 All-Star game, but prior to that incident and even afterward, Fosse too often seemed to be a victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Read More
