Will this be the week that the Tribe catches the Twins in the AL Central?

The Tribe won another series this weekend against a bad team. Doing so helped them inch ever closer to he AL Central leading Minnesota Twins. To kick off this week, the Tribe travels to Toronto to face the Blue Jays (another bad team) while the Twins head home to host the Yankees (a good team). Sweeps from Cleveland and New York will put the Indians in a tie for...

Francisco Lindor calls for expanded netting after foul ball strikes child

Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor became the latest player to suffer the awful experience of accidentally hitting a child with a line drive foul ball Sunday and he wants steps taken to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. Lindor urged MLB teams to expand netting all the way down both foul lines after he hit a child with a line drive. He said he was told that a three-year-old boy was hospitalized as a result of the accident. “I encourage every MLB team to put the nets all the...

This may very well be the baseball.

The Indians held off the rallying Royals in the late innings to win 5-4, completing a homestand that saw the team win seven out of three games and sneak closer to the Minnesota Twins in the standings. At worst, the Indians will remain 3 games back of the Twins, but if the A’s manage to mount a rally they might sneak to within two of the division lead.

Indians waste fantastic start by Adam Plutko, six game winning streak snapped

David Dermer-USA TODAY Sports

They lost this one, but not in the fashion most assumed

It’s really hard to win a baseball game if you don’t score any runs. I haven’t checked all of FanGraphs, but I reckon that it’s never happened. The Tribe tried their best today to scratch across a win with no runs, but they, like all other teams in the history of baseball, ended up with a loss after failing to score a run. Had Adam Plutko pitched like many thought he would, maybe the loss...

This was the game a lot of folks in the preview had the Tribe losing. Hopefully Plutko proves them wrong.

The offense had a party last night that hopefully will carry over into today. Adam Plutko, on the other hand, will try to get back on track after a shaky outing a week ago.

And now, here is the starting 9 for your Tribe:

Bauer, Stroman or Minor: Which is the most desirable trade candidate?

Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer, Blue Jays righty Marcus Stroman and Rangers lefty Mike Minor have been among the most popular names in the rumor mill in advance of the July 31 trade deadline. All three are quality starters who are under control through 2020, so a slew of contenders have predictably shown serious interest in each of them. But who’s the most desirable of the trio? Perhaps it’s the 28-year-old Bauer, who started his major league career in 2012 with the Diamondbacks....

Around the AL Central we go

The Indians are riding a five game winning streak and are coming off of a dominating sweep of the Detroit Tigers, who currently sit last in the AL Central. Now, they’ll face the Kansas City Royals, who are not much better in fourth place. The two clubs faced each other not too long ago and the Tribe came away with a sweep after that series as well. Can they do it again? One can only hope.

Trevor Bauer doesn't 'think about' trade rumors

Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer turned in a terrific performance Thursday in a win over the Tigers, striking out 10 and yielding three earned runs on five hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings. Despite Bauer’s importance to the playoff-contending Indians, his name has been frequently bandied about in trade rumors this summer. As a result, Thursday could’ve been one of his last starts as a member of the Tribe.  Asked after the game if the rumors have been on his mind, Bauer told Mandy...
