LOOK: Terry Francona at jazzercise class makes for hilarious video

Baseball players spend a good chunk of their day working out either on the field or in the weight room, so as long as they eat fairly healthy, they tend to be in good shape. But for coaches, that job is a bit more difficult. They have to carve out time from their busy schedules, and also find an activity they enjoy doing. For Indians manager Terry Francona, that activity seems to...

Cleveland Indians barely watchable in 6-2 loss to White Sox

Michael Martinez is probably a really great person. The Cleveland Indians didn’t exactly send out their A-Squad today. That’s not to take anything away from Derek Holland shutting them down, or the Chicago White Sox lineup making Danny Salazar regret waking up this morning, because the Indians backup lineup is not too shabby, either. Just be glad you don’t have to watch this...

Cleveland Indians Player of the Week: April 16 - April 22

The Doc is in, pitching is back, and Yan Gomes actually hit the ball. The Cleveland Indians are back! Well, they never really went anywhere, but seeing everyone struggle at the same time to start the season was torture. Those struggles appear to finally be over. The starting rotation — namely Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and yes even Josh Tomlin — strung together a series...

Is Francisco Lindor adding legit power to his arsenal?

The first two seasons of Francisco Lindor’s MLB career couldn’t have gone much better – especially when specifically talking about his individual performance. He’s paired Gold Glove defense with more-than-adequate production at the plate, but if we had to nitpick, his offense did take a slight step back last year compared to his rookie campaign.Despite getting over 200 more...
