For the first time in franchise history, the Cleveland Indians have won 14 consecutive games. And it only took them 19 innings against the Blue Jays to lock down lucky number 14.
The Cleveland Indians are on one hell of a hot streak. They went 22-6 in the month of June, and tied a franchise record 13-game winning streak with last night’s victory over the Blue Jays. They beat the Jays the way they’ve been beating a lot of teams lately, by sending most of the batters who come to the plate right…
Tigers hurler Justin Verlander added another achievement to his list of career accolades today as he allowed four Cleveland home runs in the same inning. We congratulate him on this stunning accomplishment.
Cleveland Indians third baseman Juan Uribe was carted off the field in the fourth inning of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels after Mike Trout’s ground ball bounced into his testicles.
When you’re hungry, you’re hungry. The food at Seattle’s ballpark looks pretty damn good, and Juan Uribe couldn’t help himself but reach for this dude’s dog.
If you’re in a hot dog race, there are no rules. You have to look out for your safety at all times, and not, say, turn around to celebrate only for a passing ballplayer to own you with a vicious shoulder check.
I really don’t want to bury the lede here: Marlon Byrd was still playing baseball, for the Indians, and was having a pretty productive season! But that’s over. The veteran outfielder has accepted a 162-game suspension after a positive PED test.
The Indians lost to the Rangers, 7-3, tonight and Francisco Lindor lost to his baseball bat, 1-0.
What separates man from beast? Humans are weak-skinned bipeds, but our great advantage in this life is our bigass brains. We build. To engineer is human. That’s how we survived in the jungles and took over this planet. Read one way, the story of human history is a long, inexorable march towards the construction of…
Major League Baseball is apparently all about fun and mischief tonight, as another NL second baseman tricked a baserunner with a deke. Daniel Murphy got Yoenis Cespedes with a fake throw earlier tonight, and Brandon Phillips caught Juan Uribe loafing off second base with his empty glove. Poor Uribe had to take a deep…
You ready for some grim baseball, my friends? Then let me tell you about Steve Delabar, the Reds reliever who walked four straight batters with the bases loaded last night.
Rajai Davis took on the role of a one-man defensive disaster in the second inning of his team’s game against the Mets today. Here’s the Cleveland outfielder’s struggles with the sun, as called wonderfully by Mets Spanish-language announcers on WEPN radio. Baseball’s rules being what they are, neither play was ruled an…
The Tampa Bay Rays still have dumb catwalks at the top of their dumb stadium, and they still occasionally wreak havoc on high fly balls. During last night’s game against the Indians, one catwalk prevented shortstop Francisco Lindor from catching a foul ball with two outs in the ninth inning.
Until today, I had never heard of a pull-down, a baseball drill in which one crow hops towards a target and then unleashes a fastball from about 30 feet away. It looks like a hell of a lot of fun, though.
You had one job.
It definitely ain’t over ‘til it’s over. The 116-win 2001 Seattle Mariners were one of the greatest teams, in any sport, to not win a championship. Led by Lou Piniella, the team was built for success: they boasted great pitching, an impeccable knack for getting on base (their .360 OBP was the highest in the majors), a
Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer had some fun last night with his rare opportunity to make some plate appearances, and made the most of his third trip to the plate in Pittsburgh by mimicking three of his teammates’ batting stances: Mike Aviles, Jason Kipnis, and Ryan Raburn. How well did he do? We placed them side-by-side…
