Indians split final series of the first half against the Yankees

Things could be a whole lot worse.

The Cleveland Indians capped off the first half of the season with a 5-2 win against the New York Yankees. They finish the curiously long “half” with a 52-43 record, the fifth-best run differential in all of baseball, and a clear agenda to improve the roster for a deep postseason run.

There will be plenty of time to speculate on the specifics over the coming All-Star break. For now let’s discuss how the Tribe won in game 95.

Bauer makes peculiar decision on future deals

In a recent podcast with Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer suggested he’d only take one-year deals for the remainder of his career (partially due to the high stakes of a bet with a childhood friend). Although that seems radical and somewhat irresponsible on the surface, Eno Sarris dives into the subject in a piece for The Athletic and discovers that maybe the idea isn’t really all that bad. Although Bauer would be giving up a lot of security, he’d likely...

Possible comeback ruined by awful defense, Indians lose 5-4

This is a new way to lose.

This game started off pretty terribly. Mike Clevinger took 25 pitches to get through the first inning, and by the time he got the third out, the Yankees were up 3-0. A changeup that hung up in the zone for Gregorious was promptly blasted a home run to center field. This 3-run shot should’ve been a 2-run shot, but home plate umpire Ed Hickox made a silly call:

Call hurts #RallyTogether
Ball 1 should be strike 3
Top 1 Clevinger vs Judge

Francisco Mejia called up by Indians, will DH against Yankees tonight

Shane Bieber optioned to keep him on schedule through the All-Star break.

The Cleveland Indians have called up top prospect Francisco Mejia to finish out the weekend series against the New York Yankees before the All-Star break.

To make room on the roster, they have also optioned pitcher Shane Bieber, who can stay on schedule over the All-Star break with a start in the minors. His optioned for this season is already burned, anyway, so no harm, no foul there.

According to the team, Mejia...

Orioles reliever Mychal Givens is a perfect fit for the Indians

This might be the most logical rumor to come out of this season yet.

According to Jon Morosi — who must have some kind of main line to the Cleveland Indians front office — the Indians have had talks with the Baltimore Orioles regarding reliever Mychal Givens.

Source: #Indians and #Orioles have discussed Mychal Givens, among numerous players, in recent trade talks. Cleveland is prioritizing controllable relievers comfortable with appearances of 4+ outs, and that describes Givens....

Orioles, Indians have discussed Adam Jones trade

The Orioles and Indians have held discussions on a number of players, per Jon Morosi of MLB.com (Twitter link), who calls a trade of Adam Jones to Cleveland a “viable” possibility. The Indians, Morosi notes, have been in the market for a right-handed-hitting outfield bat.Of course, any discussion of Jones as a trade candidate should begin with the fact that he’s spent the past 11 seasons with the Orioles and, as such, has full 10-and-5 rights that allow him to veto any trade scenario....
