Go Astros

Still having a hard time getting over last night’s sweep. Not sure why but this season’s postseason slump hurts worse than previous years. Maybe it’s cause no one that has a job got to watch any of the games? Talk about a terrible schedule. Oh well… I’m an Astros fan the rest of the way. 

Here's To The Indians

Still love me some Tribe… and now it’s officially Browns and Cavs season in the CLE.

Big Night For Roberto Perez

Roberto Perez seemed to be everywhere last night as the Indians beat the Red Sox in game one of the ALDS. He hit home runs, he was involved in plays at the plate, he was tagging up when he shouldn’t have and brought back memories of Carlos Baerga with a slide into second base that hurt to watch.

The series continues this afternoon at 4:30 at Progressive Field.

We’re Underway – It’s Tribe Time!!!

With their 7-4 victory over the Tigers on Monday night, the Indians clinched the 2016 AL Central title and they’re back in the playoffs! This is the first time since the 2013 season the Tribe has been to the post season and the first time since 2007 that they’ve won the division.

I ran across this on Facebook this morning when Carrie Nagy Swain added it as her cover photo.

The One and Only Kenny Lofton

It’s been pretty Cavs-centric here on the site lately (for obvious reasons) so I figured I’d switch it up a bit. Here’s a pic of an awesome life sized Kenny Lofton “baseball card” that hang in Progressive Field. Too cool!

The Indians won their 11th straight last night and are on their longest winning streak in 34 years. It’s a great time to be a Cleveland sports fan!

Tom Hamilton Signs Contract Extension

If you’re a Cleveland baseball fan, you know Tom Hamilton. You may not know what he looks like, but you DEFINITELY know what he sounds like. Tom is the Voice of the Cleveland Indians and today the Tribe announced that he had signed a new multi-year contract extension. Summers at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario never sounded so good. A SWING AND A DRIVE!!!

We’re Under Way At The Corner…

With the Super Bowl out of the way it’s time to really start focusing on basketball as the Cavs make a run to the Finals. And don’t forget right around the corner is BASEBALL SEASON! I don’t know about you but I get goosebumps thinking about Tom Hamilton uttering those wonderful words: “We’re under way at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario!”

Indians Batter Up Game Program

As we head into the fall I figured I’d take a look back at the beginning of a summer past. This is my Opening Day program from the 2013 season opener against the New York Yankees.

Goodbye Mark Shapiro – Thanks

On August 31, 2015, Mark Shapiro announced that he would take over as President and CEO of the Toronto Blue Jays at the end of the 2015 season.  Shapiro has been in the Cleveland Indians organization since 1991. He had worked his way up from player development director to assistant GM, and in 2001 became general manager. Shapiro was named Executive of the Year by the Sporting News in 2005 and 2007. At the end of the 2010 season, he became the Cleveland Indians team president.

Mark Shapiro Indians

Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to Cleveland for the last 24 years. Toronto is lucky to have you.

100 Strikeouts Times Four = HISTORY

We’re nearly at the halfway point of the baseball season and I think it’s fair to say that the Indians haven’t quite lived up to expectations. That said there are definitely some bright spots. The Tribe is the first team in MLB history to have 4 pitchers with 100 strikeouts or more before the All-Star break! Congrats to Carlos Carrasco, Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer & Daniel Salazar on a GREAT first half!

How do you think the Indians will do in the 2nd half?

Tribe Turning It Around?

In case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven’t, the Indians have managed to win a few here and there, and are threatening to climb out of the cellar. (Yes, I know they’ve been the road, but any chance to quote Harry Doyle and I’ll take it…) The Indians beat the White Sox last night and finished their road trip winning the final 3 in a row.

The Indians are back in action tonight against the Cincinnati Reds for 3 games and follow that up with 3 against the Texas Rangers before going back on the road. Let’s Go Tribe!

34 Years After Perfection

34 years ago today on May 15, 1981, Cleveland Indian Len Barker threw a perfect game at Cleveland Stadium. Baseball seating capacity that season was 76,685.  Official paid attendance was 7,290. Yes somehow you can find about 400,000 Clevelanders that “were there”.  Funny how that works isn’t it? 🙂

Len Barker Perfect Game

Regardless of the attendance, it’s an amazing accomplishment. Congrats Len!
