Tomlin Shines Against Former Indian Westbrook, Tribe Takes Series Opener; Indians 6, Cardinals 2

June 9, 2012 |

By Charles Rosala

Interleague play has returned to the MLB and the Cleveland Indians took on the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals – both had 30 wins coming into tonight’s game. The Indians had great pitching and hitting throughout the entire game to pick up a 6-2 victory.

The Indians were aggressive in their at-bats which made the difference in the game. The Tribe tallied two runs in the first inning to jump out to an early 2-0 lead. Carlos Santana and Michael Brantley had the RBIs.

After two and a half innings of scoreless baseball the Indians increased their lead with an RBI groundout by Casey Kotchman, which made the lead 3-0. The very next inning after getting the first two runners on base, Jason Kipnis hits a single to right field that gave the Indians a 4-0 lead in the fifth inning.

Bad Ending To Season Opener; Blue Jays 7, Indians 4

April 6, 2012 | | One Comment

By Sean Tuttle

The day began with all the celebrator grandeur of Opening Day and Justin Masterson dominated for eight innings, but Chris Perez could not close the game and the Cleveland Indians allowed the Toronto Blue Jays to steal the opener, 7-4.

The Tribe’s bats would come alive in the bottom of the second. Carlos Santana started the inning off with a walk, Travis Hafner struckout swinging for the first out, Shelly Duncan doubled to left and advanced Santana to third. Kotchman with his first appearance as an Indian grounded out to first, but struck first on the scoreboard with Santana scoring. Jason Kipnis followed with a walk which set up Jack Hannahan who hit a three run home run to right field. Michael Brantley followed with a double of his own, giving the tribe three extra base hits in the inning.

Next Man Up In Bullpen May Be Hagadone

February 27, 2012 |

 

Each week through Spring Training the DTTWLN staff will profile and break down the players in camp for the Indians at Goodyear, Arizona and examine their potential roles for the season to come. This week, we continue our Goodyear coverage by breaking down the players who are battling for a chance to make the Opening Day roster.

By Sean Tuttle

With injuries already taking a precedent at spring training, Nick Hagadone will be considered the first option to move from AAA Columbus to the Tribe bullpen if any injuries or lack of performance take place. As it stands today, Hagadone probably has an Opening Day roster spot, but things could change quickly during camp.

Too Much Depth and Young Talent for LaRoche

February 24, 2012 |

By Sean Tuttle

It seems that the Indians made it a point to address the corner infields this offseason. So much to that veteran third baseman Andy LaRoche may not find a spot after spring training, especially with the additions of Russ Canzler and Casey Kotchman.

Countdown To Pitchers And Catchers: #4 Jim Hegan

February 16, 2012 | | One Comment

Today continues our countdown to the start of Indians pitchers and catchers reporting to Goodyear, Arizona on February 20. We’ll count down the days, profiling a former Indian who wore the corresponding number. Some players will be memorable, others just our favorites and some, the only one we could find who wore that number. Today, we chronicle the career of Jim Hegan.

The modern era would be far more cruel to a player like Jim Hegan.

The Tribe catcher for 14 seasons—11 of which were as the Tribe’s starter—may never have been more than a back up player or someone with a limited ceiling in today’s game because he lacked the offense to produce. Hegan’s intangibles proved more valuable than his bat, however.

Countdown To Pitchers And Catchers: #6 Rocky Colavito

February 14, 2012 |

Today continues our countdown to the start of Indians pitchers and catchers reporting to Goodyear, Arizona on February 20. We’ll count down the days, profiling a former Indian who wore the corresponding number. Some players will be memorable, others just our favorites and some, the only one we could find who wore that number. Today, we chronicle the career of Rocky Colavito.

By Matthew Van Wormer

The next name on our list is most prominent due to the “curse” that supposedly haunted the Indians for years when they traded away the ever popular, Rocky Colavito. Colavito made his debut with the Indians on September 10, 1955, joining the club with the rest of the September call-ups. He played in just five games down the stretch, getting four hits in his nine at bats. The Indians were excited about what this youngster could do.

The next season, Cleveland got a taste of the power that would come off the bat of Colavito as he clubbed 21 home runs and hit .276 while the Indians finished nine games back of the Yankees in the American League standings.

Offseason Swap Series: Miami Marlins

February 13, 2012 | | One Comment

By Matthew Van Wormer

Well, after a long offseason, we’ve finally made it to the end of the weekly Offseason Swap Series that we started back in November.  After hitting all the American League teams, we finished off with the Tribe’s Interleague opponents and this is the last one; the newly dressed, named and sheltered, Miami Marlins.

The Marlins made quite a splash in the offseason, reeling in players like Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle to try to help them improve upon what has been a roller coaster history.  Could this be just another attempt at a purchased championship or are the Marlins looking at the long term for once?  Here is what David Gershman from MarlinsDaily.com had to say in response to the questions I asked him.

Offseason Swap Series: Cincinnati Reds

February 6, 2012 |

By Matthew Van Wormer

Last season for the Cincinnati Reds was very much like last season for the Cleveland Indians.  The Reds hovered around .500 all year long but just couldn’t get a push of wins to put them over the hump.  Unlike the Indians, Cincy was consistent all year long and didn’t have the benefit of a hot start to give them a cushion over the rest of the competition.  I got in touch with Steve, the Senior Editor of Blog Red Machine and asked him about the Reds and what they had in 2011 and what they can look forward to in 2012.  Here’s what he had to say.

DTTWLN? #1 – In 2011 Cincinnati was hanging right around .500 all season long.  Unfortunately, other teams in the division surged ahead of them to get into the playoffs.  What were the Reds missing in 2011 to get them over the hump?

Positional Battles Begin To Emerge As Tribe Prepares For Goodyear

February 3, 2012 |

 

 

By Sean Tuttle

With spring training quickly approaching, the Indians front office has put the coaching staff in a decent situation. Most would agree that it is better to have more than one capable position player than one questionable one.

In the past few days, the Indians have acquired utility player and the 2011 International League MVP, Russ Canzler, as well as free agent first baseman, Casey Kotchman.

Tigers’ Big Move Could Force Tribe’s Hand

January 24, 2012 |

 

By Matthew Van Wormer

When Victor Martinez went down for the entire 2012 season last week due to a torn ACL, Indians fans breathed a sigh of relief.  They weren’t happy that one of their former favorites was hurt but they were sure glad that the bat of Martinez wouldn’t be tormenting the Indians again this coming year.

Bad for the Tigers, good for the Indians.   Then, today the Tigers sign the big bat, and belly, of Prince Fielder to a 9-year, $214 million dollar deal so he can play in the same city that his father pounded baseballs years ago.

Countdown To Pitchers And Catchers: #31 Steve Olin

January 20, 2012 |

Today continues our countdown to the start of Indians pitchers and catchers reporting to Goodyear, Arizona on February 20. We’ll count down the days, profiling a former Indian who wore the corresponding number. Some players will be memorable, others just our favorites and some, the only one we could find who wore that number. Today, we remember the short career of Steve Olin.

By Christine Bailey

Many young tribe fans may not recognize the name Steve Olin. However, for those who remember the name, may say he was a rising relief pitcher well on the way of making a name for himself in the majors. Even though I was very young when Steve Olin played for Cleveland, I do remember him.
