The one thing Jose Ramirez hasn’t done this year

The goat is as beautifully imperfect as all of us

The superlatives and champagne showered upon Jose Ramirez this season have been numerous and deserved. But where Trevor Bauer and Mike Clevinger had seemingly endless streams of liquid to pour over the goat, we’ve nearly run out of adjectives for how good he’s been.

As of this writing, among all MLB players, the diminutive slugger sits third in home runs, fifth in runs scored, fifth in RBI, fourth in stolen bases, eighth in walk...

Postseason Trevor Bauer: Bullpen or Starter?

Trevor Bauer of the Cleveland Indians was having a Cy Young caliber season before he was hit in the ankle by a line drive on August 11. This led to a stress fracture in his ankle and Bauer has been on the disabled list ever since. Trevor is looking to come back soon as he started to throw off the mound late last week and throwing to batters starting on Tuesday. The question remains, should Bauer come back to the starting rotation or move to the bullpen for the postseason? Bauer has stated...

Indians considering using Trevor Bauer out of playoff bullpen

The Cleveland Indians may have a weapon to make their playoff bullpen even deeper.Indians president Chris Antonetti admitted that the team has considered using Bauer, who fractured his fibula and has not pitched since August 11, as a reliever during the postseason. It’s unknown when Bauer will return, but it seems unlikely that the Indians will be able to get him stretched out in time for the playoffs. Given the issues they’ve had with their bullpen, another arm back there would help. If...

The 2018 Indians deserve to be taken seriously

An easy division shouldn’t diminish how good this team can be

The Cleveland Indians could have celebrated winning the American League Central on March 31. Once they sealed a victory against the Seattle Mariners and established a foothold in the win column, there was no turning back in a division as dreadful as the AL Central.

Sure, the Minnesota Twins were supposed to offer some kind of fight after making an improbable and exciting run to the Wild Card game in 2017, but the Chicago White...

Martinez’s Brief Farewell Tour Fittingly Stopped First in Cleveland

Prior to Saturday’s game, longtime Cleveland slugger Victor Martinez announced his plan to retire at season’s end, bringing a close to a professional career that began in 1996 with the Indians organization and that has lasted 16 years at the Major League level. Martinez’s announcement ended a month of speculation in the Motor City after the 39-year-old, relegated solely to designated hitting duties over the last two years and for the majority of the last four, had previously indicated...

Skeleton Crew Rally Falls Short as Tigers Hold Off Tribe Late; Tigers 6, Indians 4

An Indians lineup composed of bench pieces, recent minor league call-ups, and players getting in routine work while returning from injury challenged the Tigers on Sunday, but a ninth-inning rally fell just short as Detroit claimed a 6-4 win in Cleveland. The Tigers (61-88) took a series from the Indians (83-66) for just the second time this season, improving to 6-13 against the Tribe this season. Cleveland owned Detroit throughout the year, outscoring the division rival 116-47 for the...

Tigers top Tribe 6-4 in Fall Training debut

The Indians clinched last night, and have a day off tomorrow.

The Cleveland Indians defeated the Detroit Tigers today 4-6 because the Indians are going to the playoffs and the Tigers aren’t.

The Tribe clinched last night and presumably many players in the clubhouse spent the evening celebrated by, uh, playing cribbage into the wee hours of the morning. As such, the lineup had a much different look today and featured few of the Indians’ normal starters.

By few, I mean none of them....

Clevinger sees hard work pay off in career year

With his shoulder-length hair soaked in champagne, Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger was asked what this moment meant for him. When Cleveland acquired him, he was coming off elbow surgery and required delivery reconstruction. Four years later, he picked up the win in a division-clinching game.
