ICYMI at DTTWLN – October 12 to October 18

Every Monday at 11 AM, we will bring you a recap of all of the stories you may have missed over the previous week, complete with all necessary links.

Our offseason coverage continued with a look back at some of the positives of the 2015 season.

On Monday, Craig Gifford looked back on the acquisitions of Abraham Almonte and Chris Johnson and the benefits of a fresh start in Cleveland. Bob took a look on Tuesday at the career and season of Cody Allen and how he has anchored the team’s bullpen. Danny Madden shared the story of Cody Anderson’s impressive comeback on Wednesday. The relatively unknown story of reliever Jeff Manship was Bob’s topic of Thursday’s discussion. Laurel Wilder looked at the triumphant return of Josh Tomlin from injuries on Friday morning. Bob broke down a recap of the ingredients that made the month of August a recipe for 2016 on Saturday morning and on Sunday took a look at the connections linking members of the ALCS and NLCS contestants with the Indians organization.

In historical pieces, a playoff-heavy theme was the undertone of each of Bob’s “Today in Tribe History” stories.
