Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 30 – Tyler Naquin

February 26, 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 – 30 days

Tyler Naquin kicked off his spring with the Tribe in nice fashion, yanking a pitch down the right field line at Goodyear Ballpark and over the wall for a solo home run, giving Cleveland its first run of Cactus League play in 2019. Will that be a positive omen for the right fielder, who is looking to stake his claim to a roster spot after several seasons of mixed results and injury?

Naquin’s third season in the number 30 for the Tribe came to a premature end last season after just 61 games. He had provided some encouraging numbers through the first half, but the injury bug’s repeated bites led to lackluster second half figures. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 30

February 27, 2018 |

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, our countdown has reached the 30-day mark to the start of the 2018 Major League Baseball regular season schedule. We at Did The Tribe Win Last Night continue to look ahead to the warmer days of the year by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 30 days

The Indians’ current number 30 is once again in spring camp for Cleveland, hoping to latch on to a spot in an outfield mix that has a few question marks heading into the 2018 season.

Tyler Naquin has had opportunities in each of the last two seasons to make a lasting impression on the coaching staff of the Indians, but he instead played his way back to Triple-A Columbus and watched other men fill the outfield void. Read More

Swisher Trade Rumors Could Result in a Ubaldo-Cleveland Reunion

November 20, 2014 | | One Comment

The #IndiansTwitter-sphere exploded a bit on Tuesday with the tweet-announcement from Ken Rosenthal that stated that the Indians could be looking to trade Nick Swisher.

Rosenthal’s tweet said that sources implied the Indians are “exploring wide range of options, including a trade of Swisher for another player with an inflated contract.” He went on to state that since Swisher is owed $30 million in 2015 through 2016, players such as the Phillies’ Ryan Howard, the Braves’ B.J. Upton, and the Orioles’ Ubaldo Jimenez would be examples of trades and contracts the Indians could be considering as a trade for Swisher. Rosenthal clarified that not every player mentioned is necessarily being considered, but acted as examples of the sort of inflated contract the Indians would be looking at. Read More

Remaining Schedule Favorable for the Tribe

August 10, 2014 |

If you’re still riding the roller coaster ride that has been the Cleveland Indians season, congratulations on wearing your Cleveland sports pride and pain on your sleeve.

After 117 games, the Indians have been a largely underwhelming team. A frantic finish to the 2013 season led the club back to the postseason for the first time since 2007, but offseason rotation and lineup concerns were relatively overlooked. While the Indians did not lose anything on the offensive side of the ball in free agency over the winter, their upgrade of David Murphy to a platoon and Nyjer Morgan to the bench left a gaping need in the lineup for a power bat, especially a right-handed stick. The rotation, one that saw the departures of Scott Kazmir and Ubaldo Jimenez to free agency, opted to build from within around mainstays Justin Masterson, Corey Kluber, and Zach McAllister.

Only Kluber remains and that is largely at play for Cleveland’s 58-59 record heading into action Sunday afternoon. Yet despite the subpar play over the first 70% of the season, the Indians are actually closer to the top of the division than they were at this time last season.

New Expectations Meet Many Questions for 2014 Indians

February 9, 2014 |

It was one of the few Cleveland sports seasons in recent years that ended too soon.

Instead of crawling to another dismal 4-12 season or talking about how many ping pong balls are in the hopper, the newly rebuilt 2013 Cleveland Indians hung around the playoff race all season, then tore off a 10-game winning streak to end the season and secure a place in the American League Wild Card game. Winning: it’s something Clevelanders haven’t experienced a lot of recently.

It was the first playoff game of any kind in Cleveland since the spring of 2010. A sold out Progressive Field, waving towels and completely locked into the game went home disappointed, however. The Indians lost to the Tampa Bay Rays in the one-game playoff, 4-0. After 10-straight wins and building enthusiasm around the city, it was all over in just nine innings. It ended too soon.
