More on Baseball’s Integration, the Tribe’s Larry Doby and Beyond

Here and elsewhere, Indians outfielder and race pioneer Larry Doby was celebrated. A deserving man who graces Cooperstown and who is now honored by a statue at Progressive Field, Doby nevertheless appears likely to remain an underrated figure. Cleveland, at least, has finally begun to appreciate Doby’s experience in baseball. But when the Indians signed him, how was the process...

The Cleveland Indians had one last trade to sneak in just ahead of the 2015 MLB trade deadline. They traded left-handed reliever Marc “Scrabble” Rzepczynski to the San Diego Padres in exchange for 26 year old Abraham Almonte (ESPN’s Keith Law was the first to report though he misspelled Rzepczynski in his rush). Scrabble was seemingly struggling overall this season pitching...

Is Brandon Moss for Rob Kaminsky the worst John Mozeliak trade ever?

I’m not going to sugar coat this at all. This is quite possibly the worst trade in John Mozeliak’s history with the Cardinals. First of all, Mo…stop trading with Chris Antonetti. He’s destroyed you every time. Justin Masterson was crap when you got him. Mark DeRosa was crap when you got him. Jake Westbrook was middling at best when you got him. At least you made the Indians...

Should The Indians Trade A Starting Pitcher?

With the July 31st trade deadline just a day away, the Indians find themselves in an interesting position, one they likely did not expect to be in when the season began.

The fearsome foursome of Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, and Danny Salazar is one of the most talented rotations in...

He was dealt (along with Craig...

Frazier in the Red Zone

For sports aficionados the red zone concerns the potential for a team to score. For the past several weeks this term might be one you could apply to High Class-A Lynchburg outfielder Clint Frazier, the #2 prospect of the Cleveland Indians system.

The Indians Columbus Storage Facility

Every Major League baseball team’s AAA farm club is there to serve two purposes. Primarily, it is the final step for prospects before they hit the Major Leagues. It is the separator for borderline prospects as many players on AAA rosters have at least some Major League experience. The secondary reason is to store these players with Major League experience.

Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Bourn steals show

Cleveland Indians’ outfielder, Michael Bourn, has struggled in all facets of his game this year. Entering the 2015 season, Bourn had a career .269 batting average (.331 on-base percentage) and 309 stolen bases.

Cleveland Indians trade rumors: Carlos Carrasco edition

For a majority of the 2015 MLB season, it wasn’t known what position the Cleveland Indians would take at the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. The Tribe hung around in the AL Central and wild card standings through the first three and a half months of the season, never close enough to be declared buyers but never far enough to be seen as definite sellers. But then, last week...

Indians won't trade Aviles due to daughter's leukemia battle

The Cleveland Indians aren’t out of the playoff race quite yet, but there’s one player who definitely isn’t for sale ahead of the Major League Baseball trade deadline. At 45-48, the Indians certainly aren’t a lock for the postseason. However, the club is 4 1/2 games out of an American League wild card spot and could have a fighting chance with a few good moves.
