The Baseball Version of Indians SS Jose Ramirez is Quite Terrifying

After a horrific start to the season, the Cleveland Indians have won four of their last six games to get them to 17-23. Yes, they’re still dead last in the AL Central (nine games behind the first place Royals), but you have to start somewhere. Per Cut4, part of the Indians’ success may be due to some dark arts performed by pitcher Carlos Carrasco. As you can see below, Carrasco...

Third Baseman Taylor Murphy Adapting to New Surroundings

If there’s one thing the Indians have an abundance of, it’s outfielders. Fans know it, big league players seem to have taken notice, and 22 year-old Taylor Murphy knew it. Murphy played in the outfield last year for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, and spent much of his collegiate career in the outfield, as well. He didn’t do poorly in the outfield, either. In 46 games last season...

Gomes, Close to Tribe Return, Will Be Welcome Addition

The Cleveland Indians took a major hit on April 11 when their starting catcher, Yan Gomes, took a big hit in a home plate collision against the Detroit Tigers. The play left Gomes with a sprained right MCL and left the Tribe scrambling to replace one of the more valuable players on the roster. In 2014, after breaking out in Cleveland the prior year, Gomes showed how key he is to...

5/20 Recap: Marcum Tosses a Gem and The Tribe Holds On

Roster Update: Shaun Marcum needed to be promoted to make tonight’s start (he may make more as well depending on the health and ability of T.J. House) and in order to make room on the 25 man roster, Zach Walters was sent back to AAA. During his time with the team, Walters went just 1/17 with eight strike outs and no walks.

Mets Card of the Week: 2002 Bruce Chen

2002 TOPPS BRUCE CHEN It is always bittersweet when a human time capsule like Bruce Chen retires. You look back at his first career start– a 21-year old lefty for the division-leading Braves facing a distant-second Mets squad in an essentially meaningless September game– and the names that float through the box score speak of a different era. Alfonzo, Olerud, Allensworth, Ordonez...

While somehow he didn’t...

2007 Cleveland Indians: Where are they now?

If you were a Cleveland Indians fan in the mid-2000’s, then you remember 2007. The excitement. The thrill. The heartbreak. It was a wild and magical ride at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario, but they weren’t able to reach the ultimate goal.
