The Games That Got Away

September 30, 2014 |

Today continues DTTWLN’s three week examination of the Indians 2014 season and where it fell short of the playoff expectations established last winter. The staff will examine where the season went wrong and the challenges the front office faces to make the Indians contenders in 2015.

It is easy to go back over the course of a season and find games that a team should have won. Generally, there are plenty of options available, whether they come via errors, blown saves, lack of clutch hitting, or unexpectedly poor pitching performances.

When a team finishes on the outside of the postseason by just a handful of games, these games, these missed opportunities, become so much more significant.

If you watched the Cleveland Indians this season, you already know that they gave more than their fair share of games away to their opposition.

Making a Case Against Kluber for the Cy Young Award

September 28, 2014 | | One Comment

Now before Cleveland Indians’ fans and supporters of Corey Kluber jump down my throat and tell me that I must be crazy for the title of this post, hear me out. It does not have anything to do with me not wanting Kluber to be given the honor nor does it have anything to do with the Indians’ history of trading away young star Cy Young winners, I assure you that.

Anyone can throw out the numbers that Kluber has put up in this breakout season to make a case for him to be in consideration for the American League Cy Young Award. Kluber has made it extremely easy with the incredible season he has put together.

Numbers speak volumes. They confirm what has already passed the eye test. But there are plenty of other numbers from other pitchers around the league that merit consideration, too. Does Kluber have enough to overcome where his numbers lack and where others’ numbers may excel? What obstacles stand in the way for the new Indians ace in his pursuit of the top pitching award in baseball in just his first full season in the Major Leagues?

Brantley’s 200th Hit, Carrasco’s Ten K’s Not Enough; Rays 2, Indians 0

September 27, 2014 |

It was business as usual for the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night, as a strong starting pitching effort was wasted by defensive blunders and an absence of offense as the Tampa Bay Rays completed a 2-0 shutout.

In the first game since being mathematically eliminated from the postseason Friday night by an Oakland win, the Indians took the field looking towards the future while taking care of a little business in the present.

Carlos Carrasco took the mound for one final time, one of the biggest bright spots and resurgence stories on the club or even around the league. He would not disappoint, but both his offense and defense came up short again, just as it had done five days prior when Carrasco publicly criticized his teammates.
