Jason Kipnis was something special to Cleveland

His Indians career likely over, it’s important to remember what he’s been for this team

It doesn’t make any real, logical sense to be a Cleveland Indians fan. Perhaps if you’re over a certain age and you have some kind of geographical attachment to the team, or like me have a familial connection to the team it make sense. In the grander scheme of things, there are just better choices to make, if only to protect your sanity and have some kind of...

Did you watch the Indians play the Tigers at some point this year? Then you probably saw Cleveland win (unless you watched on April 10, in which case I’m sorry for your loss).

We’ll miss ya Detroit . . .

Winning is fun and sweeps are even better.

The Tribe finished off a great series on Thursday evening with a 7-0 victory and three-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers. Cleveland’s three-game sweep of Detroit was just what the doctor ordered as we are thick in the crucial, super-important, nothing-left-in-the-tank, must-win phase of the postseason races. Thursday’s victory jumped the Indians back into a tie with the Rays...

Report: Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez could make return next week

The Indians took a massive hit in late August when third baseman Jose Ramirez fractured the hamate bone in his right hand. Now, with the Indians fighting for a wild-card spot in the American League, Ramirez is working toward a return.  There’s at least a possibility Ramirez will be back for the team’s road series against the White Sox next week, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. That would give Ramirez a chance to play in the final six games on the Indians’ schedule. The injury to...

Five MLB hitters who need to step up down the stretch

We are into the final stretch of the MLB season, with playoff spots yet to be decided. There are clear favorites in every division but the NL Central, while both the AL and NL wild card races remain tight. That means plenty of teams remain in contention for a postseason bid right down to the wire. These teams are going to need some big moments from important players down the stretch to earn the right to play in October. Here are five hitters who need to come up big in the final weeks of the...

Watch: Yasiel Puig on his game-winning single vs Detroit

Yasiel Puig carried the Indians to a 2-1 win over the Tigers on Wednesday night with a walk-off single in the 10th inning after Detroit intentionally walked Carlos Santana to load the bases and pitch to Puig. The win kept the Indians in the playoff hunt for the AL Central and a wild card earth.

For those of who don’t need to ask your dude how a game of baseball works, what you just witnessed was truly wonderful. There were also several innings of boredom, but let’s just ignore those and focus on the fact that Yasiel Puig is amazing.

Who needs fastballs when you have a big pile of trash?

Relief pitchers are a strange entity. With the small samples they deal in, you’re always wondering whether what you’re seeing is a statistical fluke, the real thing or something in between. That’s where we stand with Tyler Clippard.

For the last five years, Clippard has been … fine, I guess, pitching for eight different teams, notching a 3.21 ERA over 404 innings, striking out 26.9 percent...

N&N: Indians beat Tigers, water stays wet

Morning news and notes for Wednesday, September 18, 2019

The Indians had Detroit on their schedule last night. So Detroit would be the only team the Indians were able to beat last night. Adam Plutko did his thing again, and so did Jordan Luplow and Oscar Mercado.

Franmil missed Tuesday’s game due to a family situation. Andrew Velazquez made his Indians debut, playing second base for the injured Jason Kipnis, who hopefully has not played his final game in...

Business as usual with the Tigers in town

I know I should be relishing the Cleveland Indians’ bludgeoning of the Detroit Tigers this season, but it feels like the Tribe has now reached the point of beating the proverbial dead horse, recording their 15th consecutive victory over the hapless Tigers by a score of 7-2.

Adam Plutko, in his fourth start this season against Detroit, didn’t have much trouble with the Tigers, save for a...

Kip has probably played his final game with the Indians

Jason Kipnis is about to join a growing list of Indians players who will not be finishing the season on the field. Unlike José Ramírez and Tyler Naquin, however, we’ve probably seen the last of Jason Kipnis in a Cleveland Indians uniform altogether.

The Indians announced earlier today that the longtime second basemen will be out 4-6 weeks with a broken hamate bone. Given that its already...

Jason Kipnis diagnosed with hamate fracture in right wrist

An MRI performed on Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis revealed a fracture in the hook of the hamate bone in his right wrist, the team announced Tuesday. The team is currently scheduling a followup appointment for him, but surgery is expected to be required, which would sideline Kipnis for four to six weeks and ostensibly remove any chance of him appearing in a potential postseason series. Cleveland has recalled infielder Andrew Velazquez to add some infield depth in the wake of the injury....
