Who and What Is At the Root of the Indians’ Offensive Horrible Start: A Poorly Timed Analytical Blog Post

Coming into Thursday night, the Cleveland Indians offense has been absolutely lackluster. Having scored 12 runs over their past 8 games, they outscored themselves during that time span on Thursday alone with their 13-0 drubbing of the Cincinnati Reds. Man, that had to feel good. It must have felt like a step in the rightContinue reading “Who and What Is At the Root of the Indians’ Offensive Horrible Start: A Poorly Timed Analytical Blog Post”

Cleveland Indians 2020 Roster Preview and Projections

I did something amazing on Saturday. I watched live baseball. This wasn’t the live baseball from half a world a way in South Korea at 5 in the morning. No, this was Major League Baseball. In prime time. On a Saturday evening! My own complaints about potentially not being able to watch my games justContinue reading “Cleveland Indians 2020 Roster Preview and Projections”

The Gasoline Gang: A Cleveland Indians Bullpen Theory- Eric Plunk

By the off-season before the 1992 MLB season, the Cleveland Indians were well on their way to putting the building blocks in place that would one day become “The Dynasty That Almost Was”.

A Baseball Debate: Do Today’s Pitchers Throw Harder Than They Used To?

One continual debate that I enjoy having with people that love baseball is about the idea of how hard pitchers have thrown throughout history. Recently, I’ve seen a lot of posts online about great baseball documentaries, and this conversation re-inspired a debate in my mind because of the Netflix documentary simply titled Fastball. For thoseContinue reading “A Baseball Debate: Do Today’s Pitchers Throw Harder Than They Used To?”

Digging Slightly Deeper on What’s the “Right Thing” for the Indians- Lindor Part 2

At the time, I reached the conclusion that there might be a number out there that is both a reasonable possibility for the Tribe asContinue reading “Digging Slightly Deeper on What’s the “Right Thing” for the Indians- Lindor Part 2″

Digging Slightly Deeper on What’s the “Right Thing” for Francisco Lindor: Part 1

Its been the biggest story of the Cleveland Indians off-season and really one of the biggest in the entirety of Major League Baseball. Indians All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor will come into his fifth full Major League season this year and will do so without a long-term contract. This past January, Lindor agreed to a $17.5Continue reading “Digging Slightly Deeper on What’s the “Right Thing” for Francisco Lindor: Part 1″

If Indians Were Looking to Improve By Trading Corey Kluber, Now Wasn’t the Time to Do It

When I started writing in this space I promised Cleveland baseball content, which to this point, has actually been conspicuously absent. I had another post all punched out and ready for editing today, but then I started getting the alerts early this afternoon on my phone. Truthfully, I was hoping to not have to startContinue reading “If Indians Were Looking to Improve By Trading Corey Kluber, Now Wasn’t the Time to Do It”
