Like Him or Not, Francona Gets Things Done

Terry Francona is a very divisive figure among Indians fans. Many in the more emotional crowd follow his every move blindly as the works of the genius who brought Boston their first World Championship in nearly 100 years. Other, more statistically inclined fans find fault in the Tribe’s manager daily. In particular, his love of at least tolerance of sacrifice bunts, his favoritism...

The city of Cleveland is still in a euphoric state following their first major sports championship in 52 years, which might explain why the person running the Cleveland Indians' Twitter account thought it would be a good idea to take a random swipe at Ayesha Curry. The Indians will finish up a series against Detroit Sunday, then move on to play series with Atlanta and Toronto.

Trevor Bauer Looks Like a Completely Different Pitcher

Eno Sarris is going to be publishing an article about Brian Dozier later today, and within that article, there’s a quote about Trevor Bauer. Dozier mentions Bauer as someone who “lives up in the zone” and who won’t go away from his strengths to attack Dozier, a high-ball hitter. And while it’s technically still true that Bauer often throws his fastballs high in the zone...

How the Indians Made It Into First Place

The Indians lead the Royals by two games in the Central. They lead the Tigers by a little more than that, and they lead the White Sox by a little more than that. The Twins are also a baseball team. These things have a tendency to shuffle, and it’s not like the Indians are guaranteed to remain where they are all season, but this is what anyone would want. They’re right where they...

Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is having his best season yet

The third overall pick in the 2011 draft seems to have "figured out" his approach on the mound. Trevor Bauer began the 2016 season in the bullpen after losing a Mexican Standoff for the final two spots in the Indians' starting rotation. For most fans it was clear that the move wasn't exactly a demotion -- in 2014, the Indians did something similar when they sent Carlos Carrasco...

Cleveland Indians bullpen struggles

The Cleveland Indians are in first place.

What is up with the bullpen? More specifically what is up with Bryan Shaw? While I don’t want to rain on the Tribe’s parade–they’ve had a great season to...

Juan Uribe says they don’t make cups big enough for his junk

Cleveland Indians third baseman Juan Uribe sat out Monday’s game with a testicular contusion. He suffered the injury during a win over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday when a Mike Trout grounder took a bad hop and caught him between the legs.

Juan Uribe suffers testicular contusion on 106-mph Mike Trout groundball

Cleveland Indians third baseman Juan Uribe was carted off the field Sunday afternoon at Angel Stadium, after taking a Mike Trout rocket groundball in a horrible place to take a rocket groundball… especially if you’re not wearing a cup. We don’t know if Uribe had a cup on, but if he did, it still didn’t get the job done. Trout ripped a one-hop groundball that had an exit...
