Today, we examine the right fielders. Be sure to check out our previous features.

Game Preview: Cleveland (72-75) vs. Minnesota (59-89)

September 16, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

Manny Acta’s team doesn’t have an “X” next to their name saying they are out of playoff contention just yet, but it’s really just a formality at this point.  The Tiger’s Magic Number is down to 1 meaning a victory by them or a loss by the Indians clinches the Central Division for the Motor City Kitties.
 
After getting swept away by the Ranger’s and losing the season series 9-1, the Indians are now in Minnesota to battle the last place Twins.  If the Twins stay in last, it will be the first time since 2008 that the Royals will not be the cellar dweller in the Central Division.
 

Cleveland Swept Out By Texas; Rangers 7, Indians 4

September 16, 2011 |

By Criag Gifford

The Cleveland Indians are playing for second place in the American League Central Division these days. The Texas Rangers, defending AL champions, are playing for a bit more as they are in a race for the AL West crown and postseason berth.

The disparity showed this week as the Tribe was swept in a four-game series in Arlington, Texas. The latest, and least embrasssing, came in a 7-4 defeat Thursday night.

Indians Outfield Never Healthy

September 6, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

Shin-Soo Choo, Grady Sizemore and Michael Brantley.

That trio is one that can be as good as any in baseball when it comes to outfield play. The three have the ability to hit for a good average, all can hit the home run ball 15-20 times a season and all three have strong base-running and fielding abilities. It is an outfield most teams would like to have – including the Cleveland Indians.

Still A Heartbeat; Indians 7, Mariners 5

August 23, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Yesterday Shin-Soo Choo missed the game to see the birth of his daughter, Abigail, and enjoy the first few breaths and heartbeats with his immediate family. Today, Choo may have given his baseball family a couple more breaths and heartbeats in the American League Central Division race.

Choo’s walkoff, three-run homer, gave the Indians a 7-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

Tigers Storm To Big Win; Tigers 10, Indians 1

August 21, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

David Huff has been susceptible to rain on the days of his starts this season. He could have used a rainout Saturday. Unfortunately for the Indians, the rain stormed through an hour before the game.

Huff never had control on the mound and the Detroit Tigers took advantage early and often, as they defeated the Indians, 10-1. In what looked to be a series the Tribe could make ground on the Tigers, the Wahoos have now dropped to three and a half back in the standings.

Tribe Steals Opener From Twins; Indians 3, Twins 2

August 13, 2011 |

 

By Craig Gifford

For seven innings Friday night, the Indians could get plenty of hits. The problem was scoring runs off Minnesota starter Carl Pavano. Once Pavano exited in the bottom of the eighth, the floodgates opened just enough for the Tribe to come away with a 3-2 victory in the first game of three-game set with the Twins at Progressive Field.

The victory kept the Indians within three games of the Central Division’s first-place Tigers, who also won Friday.

Offensive Help On The Way For Tribe

August 10, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

The Major League Baseball trade deadline came and went last month without the Indians acquiring a middle-of-the-order bat that is sorely needed if they hope to run down the Detroit Tigers and win the American League Central Division crown. Never fear, however, next week the Tribe will get that bat in its lineup without giving anything up.

It was announced Tuesday night that Shin-Soo Choo, currently on a minor league rehab assignment with the Lake County Captains, is expected to be available by sometime next week. That is welcome news. Ever since Choo injured his thumb on a hit by pitch on June 24, the Indians have scrambled to replace the right fielder’s production in the line up and the outfield.

Cleveland Indians Top 5 Stories Of The First Half

O Say Can You C

To start this list I would like to make a tribute to Orlando Cabrera who has recently become a U.S. citizen.  Many of us are born into this great country with the privilege of being an American citizen with no merit needed.  Orlando achieved his citizenship through many years of residency, but we all know he couldn’t have made that happen without his excellence on and off the field.  He is now is a proud citizen of the greatest country on Earth.  Congrats O.C. – it’s been an honor to have you on the Cleveland Indians.

 

#5 – Travis Hafner Resurgence

Travis Hafner has answered the critics and reassured his fan base that his raw hitting abilities are not a result of performance enhancing drugs.  We can close the book on the debate, and leave it with its proven and logical answer; that his slumping and limited plate appearances in the past few years were the result of the many injuries.  With Pronk’s big bat back in the lineup, and the Indians fighting for command of first place in the AL Central, it feels like ’07 in ’11.
