Mickey Callaway was “teary-eyed” when he informed Indians pitchers of his Mets hiring

I’m not crying, you’re crying (and Mickey is crying).

We knew it would happen eventually. Today, Mickey Callaway was officially announced as the manager of the New York Mets in a press conference with his new team.

Callaway, who served as the Cleveland Indians pitching coach for the last five seasons, started by thanking the Indians organization. Specifically, he wanted to thank the pitchers who he helped mold into one of the best groups in baseball.

Anger and uppercuts: Francisco Lindor’s 2017 season

A new swing and a emotion emerged in the land of Francsico Lindor this season. Take a quick glance at Francisco Lindor’s stat lines over the last three years, and it’s hard to pinpoint what kind of player he actually is. Is he a glove-first shortstop that can occasionally get on base? Is he a great-hitting shortstop with occasional pop? Or is he an absolute powerhouse? He seems to make a new adjustment every season for the better, and it’s one of the reasons he keeps evolving as one...

An Indians fan’s guide to the 2017 World Series

Let’s all watch the World Series and pretend we’re not crying inside.

Hey everybody have you heard the news, the World Series starts tomorrow and I kinda wanna die.

If you’ve been a baseball hole since the Cleveland Indians ungracefully bowed out of the ALDS (Did you see me there? I hope you waved), it might be time to come out and at least enjoy one last round of baseball before we got dark for the winter.

A year ago, we were previewing the series, still trying to get over Trevor...

Callaway instrumental in Tribe's turnaround

Mickey Callaway blew Indians manager Terry Francona away during his interview to be Cleveland's pitching coach five years ago. Francona did not know Callaway previously, but his blend of energy, knowledge and passion made it clear that he was the man for the job.

Bruce or Santana? The Tribe’s Multi-Million Dollar Question

Every offseason, every Major League Baseball team has tough decisions to make. Most teams – even the good ones – rarely start a new season with every player that they had the year before. Expiring contracts, contract options, and free agency are facts of life for all MLB clubs. That is why this past season felt so special for the Cleveland Indians. Very few tough decisions had to be made last winter. The ones that were ended up being greeted with happy returns. Mike Napoli had to go, but...

Astros beat Yankees in Game 7

They’ll face the Dodgers in the World Series

It does ring a bit hollow given what happened last week, but yesterday was Yankee Death Day(tm) 2017.

ALCS: Astros 4, Yankees 0 (Houston wins series 4-3)

Astros beat Yankees in Game 7, win AL Pennant (mlb.com)

It’s amazing that in a postseason with so many pitching changes, the winning team in Game 7 of the ALCS used a grand total of 2 pitchers. And that’s even more amazing considering the starter only went 5 innings. It was a tandem start,...

What was happening the last time Houston won a championship?

With their seven-game defeat of the New York Yankees in the ALCS, the Houston Astros have qualified for their second World Series. The Astros are not only playing for their first World Series victory but are also vying for the first Houston championship in any sport since 1995.That year, the Houston Rockets won their second straight championship, sweeping the Orlando Magic 4-0 in the NBA Finals. Over the last 22 years, all three of Houston’s teams have contended for championships, but all...

Cleveland Indians: What went wrong?

Heading into the 2017 season, the Cleveland Indians were hungrier than ever to get back to the postseason and make a deep run that would bring them to the 2017 Fall Classic. After falling to the Chicago Cubs in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, the city of Cleveland couldn’t wait to get rolling again with a new campaign. In 2017, the Cleveland Indians had a tremendous and historic run. However, many would argue that their run ended way too soon. That is certainly a fair take. After all, the...

Carlos Santana and the new qualifying offer rules

How the new CBA will affect Carlos Santana’s free agency. I was intending to spend much of this week’s time looking at the new Qualifying Offer rules and how they will affect both Carlos Santana and the Indians as free agency begins, with the underlying assumption that the Indians would be hard-pressed to re-sign him, but that it might be possible for them to tender him a Qualifying Offer. Now that we’ve learned of Michael Brantley’s surgery and recovery time frame (4-5 months...

Dodgers demolish Cubs to advance to World Series

Morning news & notes for October 20, 2017

While I don’t suspect most Tribe fans are too excited to see the team with the highest payroll in MLB advance to the World Series, I think we can all take a little pleasure in the Cubs being eliminated brutally on their home field. With ore bad news about Michael Brantley yesterday, that’s about the best Tribe-related news we can hang onto.

Michael Brantley undergoes surgery, will resume full baseball activities in 4-5 months

No, this is not an old article.

Okay, this looks bad.

The Cleveland Indians announced via twitter this morning that Michael Brantley underwent another surgical procedure. They did not accidentally retweet a previous announcement about Brantley having surgery. It is a new one. It is about his ankle.
