Sandy Alomar

Today in Tribe History: December 6, 1989

December 6, 2018 |

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

Indians Would Do Well to Remember Lessons of Alomar Trade with Mejia

July 25, 2018 |

Okay, stop me if you’ve heard this one: The Indians and the Padres make a deal that involves a catcher that might be destined for great things but doesn’t have a shot at breaking into the starting lineup.

That happened last week, when the Indians dealt Francisco Mejia to San Diego for relievers Brad Hand and Adam Cimber. But it also happened after the 1989 season – the Indians, seeing that Joe Carter was on the verge of leaving for free agency, dealt him to San Diego. Read More

Memorable All-Star Game Position Player Performances by the Tribe

July 17, 2018 |

The 89th edition of the Midsummer Classic has arrived, with the annual exhibition set to take place at 8:00 PM on Tuesday, July 17. The Indians are well-represented for the second straight season, sending six players to the contest.

The game may not mean as much as it used to, with the advent of daily interleague play around the country, and it no longer has bearing on home field advantage for the World Series, but it still remains a great opportunity to watch some of the greats of the game take the field in competitive action.

Cleveland will be represented this year by starting third baseman Jose Ramirez, backups Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes, and Francisco Lindor, and pitcher Trevor Bauer. Corey Kluber was selected to the club but will not participate due to injury. Read More

Cleveland Indians Have Strong Ties to Puerto Rico

April 17, 2018 |

Some big names to suit up for the Cleveland Indians during the last three decades have hailed from the island of Puerto Rico. The Indians’ two-game road trip to San Juan as the visiting club against the “home” Twins on Tuesday and Wednesday will mark the team’s first regular season games in Puerto Rico and will serve as a homecoming of sorts for star shortstop Francisco Lindor and catcher Roberto Perez, who both spent a portion of their lives there.

According to the historical archives known as Baseball Reference, 242 Puerto Rican-born players have stepped into the batter’s box in Major League history. Read More

Carter Trade Changed Baseball for Fans in Cleveland

December 8, 2017 |

I generally try not to reveal my age to others in any facet of my life, but in composing the following, I had to tip my hand a bit.

This week marks 28 years (!) since the Cleveland Indians dealt fan favorite Joe Carter to the San Diego Padres for two prospects and a bit of a veteran journeyman. It would be the start of great things for the Indians organization – something seldom experienced when a perennial basement-dwelling team trades away its most productive player – but it reshaped my understanding of the game of baseball and made a decade of losing worth it during the glory years of the ’90’s.
