How to Score More; Clutch Hits or Walks?

It has been a matter of debate among Indians fans, particularly those writers who speak on the Tribe Time Now network of podcasts, why the Indians had trouble scoring runs early in the season.

5/23 Recap: Jason Kipnis Supports Corey Kluber, Even If No One Else Will

Player of the Game It shows how incredible Corey Kluber has been that he has jaded us into thinking that an eight inning, one run start is subpar, but compared to his last two, this one was a little lackluster. Kluber allowed nine hits and struck out just seven, but was able to work threw some tough situations with clutch K’s, a fortuitous double play and a runner caught stealing...

Third Baseman Taylor Murphy Adapting to New Surroundings

If there’s one thing the Indians have an abundance of, it’s outfielders. Fans know it, big league players seem to have taken notice, and 22 year-old Taylor Murphy knew it.
