Cleveland Indians Mount Rushmore: Jim Thome

Cleveland Indians Mount Rushmore

Daniel Corrigan| May 14th, 2020

The Cleveland Indians franchise has been around since 1894, where they were originally the Grand Rapids Rustlers, a minor league team in the Western League (which later became the American League.) They moved the team in 1900 to Cleveland where they became the Cleveland Lake Shores.

Too Much Pod Tar Podcast: This Day In Baseball History – April 10: Colt .45s and More Cowbell, Buehrle That’s All We Need

Alex Kielar  | April 10th, 2020

I am joined again by Johnnie Black to look back in today in baseball history. On this day, Ken Griffey Jr. hit two milestone home runs on his father Ken Griffey Sr.’s birthday, the color barrier was broken as Jackie Robinson was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers, and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays had “More Cowbell”.

Texas Rangers 2020 Season Preview

Alex Kielar | March 3rd, 2020 

Well, the Rangers closed The Ballpark in Arlington in decent fashion, going 78-84 last year, and now move into their new ballpark, Globe Life Park. Not much was really expected last year for the Rangers in the AL West with the Astros* and A’s, but they were in the American League Wild Card race for part of the season and outperformed where expectations were.

Cleveland Indians 2019 Season Recap

Daniel Corrigan | October 15th, 2019

Another year goes by, but the collapse in the 2016 World Series still stings for the Cleveland Indians. After winning 22 straight in 2017, and winning their third straight division title in 2018, the Indians failed to make the playoffs in 2019.

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- A Possible Wild Card Matchup

Tom Greene | September 6th, 2019

The end of the baseball season is getting closer. As temperatures begin to drop, the heat begins to rise on the teams that haven’t yet joined the 80-win club. After a few days away to take care of employment situations, I return to bring you two more teams that have joined our club. The Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians have been battling all season to reach a postseason berth. Now that they’ve reached 80 wins, they both feel they’re almost there. And, they’re telling the rest of the 80s club, (indirectly) “Shut your halfwit pie-holes! We’re trying to make the playoffs!”

OK, that SpongeBob reference may not have been the 80s, but we’re breaking down a team that didn’t even exist in the 80s but have some pretty awesome  “Throwbackuniforms. The Rays help the sunrise on this edition of, “Backtrax MLB!” Continue reading

What Is Dallas Keuchel Worth?

John Supowitz | May 10th, 2019

 

The MLB offseason was an interesting one due to free agency, meaning the lack thereof. Some veterans, expecting big pay-days, had to settle for less than expected and a smaller number of years, quite a few noticeable acquisitions only received one-year contracts. We’re over a month into the new season, and there are still players seeking employment, including Dallas Keuchel.

The Indians are In a Slump and They Need to Figure It Out Fast

MLB: MAY 08 White Sox at Indians : News Photo

Coming into the season, we knew that the Indians offense was going to be a problem. Lucky for the Indians, their starting pitching is among the best in the league. The Indians always struggle to start the season. For whatever reason, they always start off very slow.

Two-Start Pitchers: Week 2 (04/08 – 04/14)

Matt Bishop | April 8th, 2019    

With a total of 35 two-start pitchers scheduled for the upcoming slate, Major League Baseball is in full bloom and is putting its aces on full display for Week 2. If week 1 has shown us anything, it is that pitching is shaky and never a guarantee. With so many #1 starters struggling in their first outings (with the exception of Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom) and leaving fantasy owners scratching their heads, most were able to settle down in their second starts and handle their business like we have known them to do (see Blake Snell and Carlos Carrasco). Pitching matchups are subject to change, so make sure to check back before game time on Monday and before lineups lock:

Cleveland Indians 2019 Preview

Daniel Corrigan | March 7th, 2019

2018 was the first year that the sense of urgency for the Indians to win a World Series was present. They were now two years removed from their World Series loss to the Cubs and were coming off a 102-win season that included a historic 21-game winning streak. The rest of the AL was getting better while the Indians were just staying put. They won 91 games and their 3rd straight AL Central crown. They were swept (destroyed) by the Astros in the ALDS. In an offseason where the rumor was that Corey Kluber or Trevor Bauer were going to be traded, and where they let key players like Andrew Miller, Cody Allen, and Michael Brantley walk, they are in a weird spot. Let’s look at what the 2019 Cleveland Indians will look like.

About That Indians Lineup…

Smith Brickner | February 14th, 2019

If you’ve been paying attention to the Major League Baseball offseason, you’re probably well aware of the trade rumors surrounding two of the Cleveland Indians’ best starters: Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer. However, recent reports suggest the likelihood of either being moved is becoming increasingly unlikely. This is good news for the Indians fanbase, a fanbase still trying to figure out how the front office plans to win lots of games after 2019.

This MLB Off-Season Is An Absolute Drag

Daniel Corrigan | January 9th, 2019

I mean……….. seriously.

This Off-Season had so much promise. Two of the best in the game in Manny Machado and Bryce Harper, at the ripe age of 26 were set to hit the free agency market for the first time. There was (and still is….sorta) talks of two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber being traded. There was even a report that Kris Bryant could have been traded. Continue reading

The Indians Really Wouldn’t Trade Kluber or Bauer……Would they?

Daniel Corrigan | December 3rd, 2018

Reports are coming everywhere that the Indians have had discussions with many teams, including the Dodgers and Yankees about potentially parting ways with two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber and noted twitter warrior, Trevor Bauer.

Givanni Damico | October 5th, 2018

The ALDS is set for a star-studded matchup between the Cleveland Indians and the reigning World Series champions, the Houston Astros. This is a series in which the Astros are favored, but I see it going differently than others think. Continue reading
