Let's Talk Tribe Podcast Episode 44: One night in Cleveland

In this week's episode, Jason and I tell our own stories about attending Indians games, we discuss the idea of scrapping Josh Tomlin, the recently released playoff schedule, and we preview the Rangers.

A Complete List of Indians Catchers Who Have Batted Under .200

With a headline like this, you may expect a one sentence article that says: Roberto Perez .096 in 2016, Yan Gomes .165 in 2016, but there is a much more illustrious history than that. In fact, 52 players have batted under .200 for a season with the Tribe in the past 116 with a minimum of 100 at bats.

Francona: Tomlin deserves help, not demotion

Indians manager Terry Francona has never been one to make a rash decision in the immediate aftermath of a demoralizing defeat. After the latest setback for starter Josh Tomlin, and with a spot on the October stage at stake, Cleveland might be close to considering its alternatives.

Possible September Call-Ups: Which Prospects Can Help In the Indians Playoff Push?

The Cleveland Indians have been working the I-71 shuttle quite a bit this year, especially in the bullpen, like many other teams. Some teams have called top prospects up before now and in the last few weeks. It looks like the Columbus Clippers are a lock for the postseason in the International League, so how that effects who the Indians call-up remains to be seen. When the rosters...

Jose Ramirez Has Been Michael Brantley

It was fair to wonder about the potential of the Indians’ offense when Peter Gammons went on live television during the Winter Meetings and reported that Michael Brantley would be out until August after learning his shoulder injury was worse than originally expected. It might’ve been fair to wonder about it before then; this was a unit that was below average by wRC+ in 2015,...

Recent Indians Heroics Recall ‘Braggo’ Roth

He’s been dead for nearly 80 years, but Braggo Roth’s been a popular figure for the past couple weeks to Indians fans – and not just because he’s a right-handed power hitter. He was part of a pair of memorable moments in the team’s history that were recalled by equally memorable moments in the past couple weeks. On August 12, the Indians tied a team record by stealing a...

Another chunk of the 162-game marathon is in the rearview mirror. Before we leave it entirely behind us, let's take a moment to discuss the 3rd quarter.

These are not the same old Cleveland Indians

It wasn’t so long ago that the Cleveland Indians had quickly run the gamut of preseason breakthrough candidate to underwhelming disappointment, of sorts. Sure, they had managed to walk away with a winning record for the 2015 campaign, but it was a far cry from what was anticipated for the club on the heels of such a promising end to 2014.
