ICYMI at DTTWLN – Oct. 4 to Oct. 11

If you were away from Did the Tribe Win Last Night at any point in the last week, shame on you, but welcome back! Here are some links to bring you back up to speed.

Offseason coverage officially began after the final game recap of the season, a 3-1 win over the Boston Red Sox.

The introduction to the offseason started on Monday with Building and Maintaining a Winner in Cleveland, discussing some of the changes already in motion at Did the Tribe Win Last Night and a little taste of what to expect in the coming months. A postmortem report later in the afternoon looked back on the Cleveland Indians’ 2015 season.

Looks at various members of the team began Tuesday:

Jason Kipnis –> Kipnis Leading Off and On the Field by Bob
Francisco Lindor –> The Litany of Reasons Lindor is Rookie of the Year by Mike Brandyberry
Michael Brantley –> Bruised Brantley Emerges as a Clubhouse Leader by Bob
Carlos Carrasco –> Carrasco’s Growth Could Give Cleveland a Pair of Aces by Bob
Danny Salazar –> Salazar’s Early Season Wake-Up Call is Just the Push He Needed by Laurel Wilder
Giovanny Urshela –> Urshela Made Defense at Third Look Easy by Danny Madden

On Tuesday, breaking news was shared with the announcement that three members of the front office had changes in titles coming. On Wednesday afternoon, Vince Guerrieri took a look at Sandy Alomar and whether or not this would be the year that the Tribe’s first base coach gets a managerial gig.

With Tuesday’s An Introduction to the 1948 Cleveland Indians, Did the Tribe Win Last Night began sharing an offseason long project that will chronicle the story of a magical and different time in the city of Cleveland.
