And the season was over. Or so we thought. Seemingly...

4 Keys for the Indians for July through October

June proved to be a rough month for the Indians and the Fighting Franconas, struggling mightily to hit with runners in scoring position, and an entirely new left side of the infield – switching Lonnie Chisenhall (3B, now in AAA-Columbus) and Jose Ramirez (SS, also with Columbus) out with rookies and highly touted Francisco Lindor and Giovanny Urshela at short and third respectively...

Should the White Sox and Indians become sellers?

There is no question that the American League Central is one of the toughest divisions in baseball (it is home to 7 of 9 potential All-Star starters) and that has lead to a difficult climb for those teams at the bottom. While the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox appeared to be ready to contend for a World Series title at the start of the season, the still strong Royals,...

Fantasy Roundup: Who Is Cody Anderson?

OK, I know what you’re thinking. How convenient it is to write about a pitcher who only allowed two hits (and no walks) of shutout ball in eight innings against the Tampa Rays. However, on Monday morning I wrote Cody Anderson was my number one pitcher from a DFS and streaming perspective. I would be lying if I thought he was going to pitch as well as he did, but after watching...

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis gets no love

  Cleveland Indians’ second baseman, Jason Kipnis, had put up ridiculously impressive numbers this season, yet, he seems to go unnoticed when talking about the best hitters in the Major Leagues.

Indians Roster Rebuild Leaves Them in Unenviable Position

The 2015 Cleveland Indians don’t have to believe in Sports Illustrated jinxes, but one look at the standings and they’ll quickly have to believe that their playoff chances are about done.
