All things considered, given the amount of time that he missed in 2019, Mike Clevinger’s numbers over the course of the year were absolutely spectacular. Read More

October 4, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians play their first postseason game since 2001, welcoming in the New York Yankees for Game 1 of the American League Division Series. They play the ungracious host, as a three-run first and a five-run fifth inning lead the way to an easy 12-3 victory. Read More

Indians Spoil Cleveland Leg of Sabathia’s Farewell Tour; Indians 8, Yankees 4

June 8, 2019 |

The Indians spoiled the final regular season start in Cleveland for longtime Tribe southpaw CC Sabathia and claimed another big series win over a playoff caliber opponent on Saturday afternoon with an 8-4 win over the New York Yankees.

Playing in his 19th and final Major League season, the Sabathia farewell tour made its stop in Cleveland with a big milestone on the line for the left-hander. Looking for his 250th career win in his last Progressive Field start (his home for eight big league seasons), Sabathia was good in the early going, but ran into trouble late and was bested by Adam Plutko, who was called up from Triple-A Columbus for a spot start for the Tribe.

Will Former Indians Pitcher Sabathia’s Longevity, Milestone Add Up to Hall Call?

May 2, 2019 |

The CC Sabathia farewell tour is bearing full steam ahead, and after his start Tuesday, has reached another milestone.

Sabathia is breathing some rare air after becoming the 17th major league pitcher – but just the third lefty – with at least 3,000 strikeouts. The first 1,265 came in an Indians uniform, still good for sixth all-time on the team’s career list. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 52 – Mike Clevinger

February 4, 2019 |

Major League Baseball will kick off the 2019 season with its earliest start ever (excluding international openers) as all 30 teams will take the field on March 28. Follow along with Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down the days until Opening Day 2019. – BT

Countdown to Opening Day – 52 days

The emergence of Tribe right-hander Mike Clevinger, the current wearer of the number 52 in Cleveland, as a solid middle of the rotation arm and a sleeper Cy Young pick for the coming season was one of many reasons why the Indians were comfortable listening to offers for front end starters like Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer during the offseason.

While the team (thus far) has elected to move forward with the present starting rotation intact, that is not necessarily a bad thing. The starting staff has been one of the stronger parts of the club and if the team did not feel that an offer on the table for one of its primo pitchers was good enough to help supplement a weakened offense (due to free agency and significant salary cuts that led to offseason trades of Yonder Alonso, Edwin Encarnacion, and Yan Gomes, among others) and a thinned out bullpen (which waved goodbye to closer Cody Allen and two-time All-Star Andrew Miller), it was best for now to keep that portion of the team full of necessary depth.

Irving’s Return Evokes Memories of Former Indians’ Homecomings

October 17, 2017 |

Tuesday night, the National Basketball Association opens its 2017-18 regular season schedule as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Boston Celtics in a game that has much more meaning than the usual opening night game.

The Cavs and Celtics have become rivals over the course of the last few years, with Cleveland knocking Boston out of the playoffs twice in the last three seasons. The two clubs went toe-to-toe in the Eastern Conference Finals last year, with the Cavs winning that series, four games to one, to send Cleveland to its third straight NBA Finals. As many remember, that trip did not end nearly as well as the previous season, when the Cavs gave the city of Cleveland its first championship since 1964 with the first title in franchise history, leaving the Indians as holders of the longest active championship drought in the city.

While the Cavs will begin their defense of three straight Eastern Conference titles, the game’s real emphasis will be on the return of star guard Kyrie Irving to Quicken Loans Arena, where the former first overall pick in 2011 spent the first six years of his NBA career in Cavs’ wine and gold before demanding a trade in the offseason. The Cavs front office honored that request, sending its second-best player to a rival club, but may have, possibly, become a more well-rounded club in the process. That remains to be seen, as the results will play out over the course of the largely meaningless 82-game NBA schedule over the next six months. Read More

Battle of Previous Indians Cy Winners Pits Kluber and Sabathia in Game 2

October 6, 2017 |

In 2007, CC Sabathia was on the mound for Cleveland in the postseason at the tail end of a Cy Young Award winning year for the Indians as he became the second Tribe pitcher to ever bring home the top pitching award of a season. Seven years later, Corey Kluber joined him on that short list when he became the fourth Indians hurler to be recognized as the American League’s top pitcher.

On Friday night, the two will square off from opposite sides in Game 2 of the American League Division Series. Read More

Kluber Wins Cy Young, Hopefully Won’t Follow Path of Sabathia and Lee

November 13, 2014 |

Indians’ fans slept well last night as they were given something to celebrate this season: Corey Kluber became the fourth Tribe pitcher to win the AL Cy Young award for his 2014 performance.

Kluber joined the ranks of recent Indians’ greats CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee as pitchers worthy of the highest acknowledgment of pitching prowess. Looking further back, he also joins Gaylord Perry in the club of Cleveland Indians pitchers to win Cy Young awards since the award’s inception in 1956. The Cy Young was originally given to the best pitcher in all of baseball, but is now given to the best pitcher in each respective league. Read More
