Indians miss out on an All-Star starter

Whether fan voting is fair or not, the Cleveland Indians, barring injury, will not have a starter for the 2015 All Star Game. Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who is arguably one of the best position players in baseball so far in 2015, had the best chance of being named a starter but did not receive enough fan votes to be one. In fact, he finished third among American League...

Cleveland Indians trade rumors: Starting pitching edition

As the calendar flipped to July, it was still unclear whether the Cleveland Indians were in a position to buy or sell at the trade deadline. With the amount of parity in baseball this season, there aren’t a lot of teams that can be labeled as sure sellers at this point. Currently, in the American League, every team is within six and a half games of a wild card spot. There is less...

Cleveland Indians: Sweep of Rays comes at perfect time

Just six days ago, the Cleveland Indians were declared dead. It was Sunday, and the Tribe had just lost their second game of the day to the Baltimore Orioles. The Indians were shut out in both contests, and the wins finished off a three-game sweep for the O’s. The Tribe had lost eight of their last eleven and 13 of their last 19. And the season was over. Or so we thought. Seemingly...

Greg Allen Finds Success After Learning from One of the Best

Greg Allen was four or five when he started playing baseball, beginning with tee-ball as so many young boys do. Allen, however, was also four or five when he got the idea that baseball could be more than just a hobby. “[That’s when] my dad will tell you I knew baseball would be more than a hobby,” Allen said. “I was watching Major League Baseball on TV and acting out the...

4 Keys for the Indians for July through October

June proved to be a rough month for the Indians and the Fighting Franconas, struggling mightily to hit with runners in scoring position, and an entirely new left side of the infield – switching Lonnie Chisenhall (3B, now in AAA-Columbus) and Jose Ramirez (SS, also with Columbus) out with rookies and highly touted Francisco Lindor and Giovanny Urshela at short and third respectively...

Should the White Sox and Indians become sellers?

There is no question that the American League Central is one of the toughest divisions in baseball (it is home to 7 of 9 potential All-Star starters) and that has lead to a difficult climb for those teams at the bottom. While the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox appeared to be ready to contend for a World Series title at the start of the season, the still strong Royals,...

Fantasy Roundup: Who Is Cody Anderson?

OK, I know what you’re thinking. How convenient it is to write about a pitcher who only allowed two hits (and no walks) of shutout ball in eight innings against the Tampa Rays. However, on Monday morning I wrote Cody Anderson was my number one pitcher from a DFS and streaming perspective. I would be lying if I thought he was going to pitch as well as he did, but after watching...

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis gets no love

  Cleveland Indians’ second baseman, Jason Kipnis, had put up ridiculously impressive numbers this season, yet, he seems to go unnoticed when talking about the best hitters in the Major Leagues. Kipnis was called up to Cleveland in 2011 and hit for a .272 batting average with seven home runs, nine doubles, and five stolen bases in just 36 games. The sweet stroking lefty followed...

The Cleveland Indians certainly haven’t lived up to the hype that surrounded the club at the beginning of the 2015 season, but they are by no means out of the playoff race just yet. At 32-36, the Indians are currently sitting in 4th place in the American League Central, eight games behind first-place Kansas City (39-27).
