Grantland’s Jonah Keri votes Lindor for AL ROY; Kluber fifth in Cy Young

The Cleveland Indians won’t be hoisting any hardware as a team this fall, but there’s still a chance that they bring home some individual awards. AL Rookie of the Year contender Francisco Lindor represents the best chance, and Grantland’s Jonah Keri gave the shortstop some kudos in his season-ending awards writeup: In what will go down as The Year of the Rookie, this was another...

Sox Get Swept By Indians to End The Season

The Red Sox came into the final game of the season in 2o15 with Rick Porcello on the mound vs. Danny Salazar for the Indians.  The Sox were hoping for a win to not be swept out of 2015.  The Sox got the first run, but the Indians scored last and sent the Sox packing with another loss in the season.

Building and Maintaining a Winner in Cleveland

At Did the Tribe Win Last Night, we provide our readers with glimpses of all levels of the Cleveland Indians organization – the farm system and parent club, the players, the coaches, the facility, special events, and the front office.

Salazar‘s Season Ends on a Positive Note; Indians 3, Red Sox 1

Danny Salazar pitched into the sixth inning and made three runs of offense from his teammates stand as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-1 in the final game of the 2015 season.

Sox Drop Another Game To The Indians As Season Draws To A Close

The Red Sox faced off against the Indians once again as the season winds down.  Both teams are not going anywhere in the playoffs, so it is just playing it out at this point.  The Sox decided to tap Craig Breslow once again as a starter in a bullpen game vs. Kluber for the Indians.  Breslow once again impressed in his impromptu role as a starter, but he would still end up with...

Top 10 Pitching Performances of 2015

The season has obviously not gone the way the Indians and their fans had hoped it would. There are a number of potential reasons for the Indians underachievement, most of them related to offensive futility during the first 3/4 of the season.

Indians Must Remember Both Halves as Season Closes

It feels like it’s the same ol’ song and dance: it’s the last weekend of the Indians season, the team struggled and hung on by a thread until the very end and just couldn’t come together long enough to make it. They played mediocre baseball and, although the team is *technically* playing some October baseball right now, it’s not what fans were expecting to start the season...

Francona vs. Orsillo, or “Why We’ll Miss Don, Reason #27,849″

History has shown us that every Batman must have his Joker. Every Casear his Brutus. Every Marty McFly his Biff. Every foodie that best friend who just wants to go to Arby’s. It’s a circle of conflict that has kept this world spinning for years. Now we must add two more names to those classic confrontations: Don Orsillo and Terry Francona. For reasons I still don’t quite understand...

Already 20 rookies across the league have been worth at least two wins above replacement and at least half these will be very disappointed when they don’t win the Rookie of the Year. While that will be a very interesting discussion, it should wait until the season is officially over. Instead...

With his sixth inning strikeout of Danny Escobar, Kluber notched the 700th of his career. It placed his name next to an Indians legend, that guy who has his own statue at the ballpark. In his Cy Young campaign last season, Kluber set...
