Countdown to Indians’ 2020 Opening Day – 37

February 18, 2020 |

Baseball takes little time off in between seasons, so neither can we. Follow along at Did the Tribe Win Last Night as we count down to March 26, when the Cleveland Indians host the Detroit Tigers for game one of the 2020 season. – BT

Cody Allen, the Indians’ all-time saves leader, left Cleveland following the 2018 season after spending eight seasons in the organization. No one wore his vacated number 37 in his absence in 2019. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 37

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 – 37 days

Like so many others around baseball, Cody Allen has reported to Arizona. This time, however, his home for the spring will not be in Goodyear, but will instead be an hour east in Tempe, home of Tempe Diablo Stadium and the training site of the Los Angeles Angels.

Allen left the Indians this offseason after hitting free agency for the first time. He signed across the country with the Angels in January, agreeing to a one-year deal that will pay the seven-year big leaguer an $8.5 million base contract with another $2.5 million possible in incentives. It was likely not the deal that Allen hoped to find this winter, but it came directly after the worst season of his career, one that cost him many millions of dollars. Read More

Your Far-Too-Early Predictions for the 2019 Hall of Fame Class

October 17, 2018 |

I hope everyone got their fill of Indians going into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year, because it might be a while before it happens again.

Slugger Jim Thome entered Cooperstown this year, in his first year of eligibility, and one of the things that amazed me about that is how much ill will it – as well as his statue – has engendered. Sure, you can hold a grudge about the way he left, but the fact is that he’s the single-season and career home run leader for the Indians, and his 612 career home runs represent a mark that should be represented in the Hall, tainted only by the era in which he played and no failed tests or any other suspicion beyond the shadow of his contemporaries.

It’s entirely too early to start handicapping next year’s Hall of Fame ballot, but what else am I going to do? The Indians are all home for the off-season, and you don’t want to get me started on THAT topic. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 37

February 20, 2018 |

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 37 days

Another day is marked off of the calendar as we inch closer and closer to the start of the Cactus and Grapefruit League schedules. Today, we look at the number 37 and its role in Cleveland – most notably on the backs (and sometimes fronts) of Indians players throughout the club’s storied history. The number has been in heavy rotation for the last three and a half decades, appearing in every year since the Indians moved into their beautiful new home in the Gateway District and for nearly a decade before that. Just one time – during the final season that Cleveland Municipal Stadium served as the home of the Tribe – did the number fail to appear.

For the last six years, Cody Allen has championed the number. That will be no different this season, as the now veteran right-hander will once again serve as the closer in manager Terry Francona’s bullpen. But it could be the last season that Allen wears the number, at least for Cleveland – he is set to hit free agency at the end of the year. Read More
