ICYMI at DTTWLN – Nov. 9 to Nov. 15

Two full weeks of November are now in the history books, which means in Cleveland we are both simultaneously inching towards Indians baseball, further Browns despair, hope in the Cavaliers, and dread of the inevitable approach of inclement weather.

If you have found yourself away from Did The Tribe Win Last Night for the last week, here’s what you missed…

On Monday, Bob asked “Will Santana Be in the Heart of Cleveland’s Lineup in 2016?“, only to have to break the news a few hours later that Michael Brantley had undergone shoulder surgery and is expected to miss the beginning of the 2016 season. Tuesday morning, Danny Madden questioned “Should The Indians Trade From Their Pitching for a Big Bat?” Vince Guerrieri looked back on Lou Boudreau‘s quick reversal of fortune as Indians manager on Wednesday morning, while Craig Gifford looked into the status of backup catcher Roberto Perez and whether or not he is a strong candidate to be part of trade discussions. Thursday brought Bob’s discussion to that of Chris Johnson and whether will spend 2016 in Cleveland? His thoughts drifted course to the bullpen on Friday, when he asked “Who Will Be Tito’s Lefties in the Bullpen in 2016?” Saturday, the analysis went to the righties and Sunday, Laurel Wilder turned the focus to the battle for the final spot in the starting rotation.

Bob’s “Today in Tribe History” made its rounds through the archives, digging as deep as 1950 and as recently as last year to remember Corey Kluber‘s Cy Young Award victory.

This week in 1948, Did The Tribe Win looked back on the dates running from May 21st to May 27th. The club split a pair with the Boston Red Sox and another with the New York Yankees in front of a large crowd for a Sunday double dip. Later in the week, a local homegrown talent returns to the city in a new role, and the Tribe loses one of its stars and splits another pair with the Washington Senators to lose their grip of the top spot in the American League.

All stories that were reposted this week were originally composed by Mike Brandyberry, with the final entry being written by Steve Eby.
