INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ryan Raburn’s Awful Throw Leads To ‘Little League Home Run’ (Video)

Terry Francona probably needed a lot of antacid on Thursday night. That’s because the Cleveland Indians manager saw his team lose to the Kansas City Royals in 14 innings. That probably wasn’t the most aggravating part of the night, though. That came in the eighth inning when Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas hit a slicing fly ball down the left-field line. Indians left fielder Ryan...

Ryan Raburn spiked throw results in 'inside-the-park-HR'

In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 8th inning, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit a lazy fly ball down the left-field line. Raburn slid for it, but the ball bounced off his glove and rolled over to the wall. Moustakas seemed content jogging into second for a stand-up double until Raburn tried to throw the ball, as if he wasn’t bad enough with his glove. It turned...

Former Tiger Ryan Raburn trends for wrong reason

Ryan Raburn was trending on Twitter Thursday night -- for all the wrong reasons. Raburn, a former Tigers outfielder now with the Cleveland Indians, made an unsuccessful attempt to dive for a ball in foul territory. Raburn then got up to get the ball but his throw was, to say the least, beyond unfortunate, especially in a scoreless game in the eighth inning. Kansas City's Mike...

Are the Indians Buyers or Sellers at the Trade Deadline?

With the MLB trade deadline upcoming on July 31, Indians fans are wondering the typical cliché that always pops up at this time of year. Will the Indians be “buyers” or will they be “sellers” at the deadline? Do they make a push to add a significant player to make a run for the playoffs, or do they scrap this up-and-down season and look toward 2015? My answer: No. Plain...
