Jose Ramirez Utterly Baffled By Utility Man Brandon Dixon's 10th Straight Curveball

This is wonderful. Reds utility man Brandon Dixon made his first career pitching appearance Monday night, in the ninth inning of an eventual 10-3 loss to the Indians. His pitching line was great: Dixon threw 10 total pitches; no one of them was harder than 74 miles per hour; the slowest came in under 66 miles per…

Leonys Martín Battling Life-Threatening Bacterial Infection Leonys Martín Battling Life-Threatening Bacterial Infection

Leonys Martín has been out for the Indians with an undisclosed illness since Wednesday, August 8. This started to look like it might be quite a bit more serious than the usual flu-like symptoms on Friday, when manager Terry Francona gave an ominous update of Martín’s condition:

Jose Ramirez Is Right On Mike Trout's Heels Jose Ramirez Is Right On Mike Trout's Heels

Jose Ramirez hit another homer on Sunday, his 33rd of the year and one that gave him a share of the MLB lead. It was a towering three-run shot that helped propel the Indians over the Angels 4-3, padding their nine-game lead over the Twins in the AL Central.

The Indians Paid A Lot For Their New Bullpen, But They Pretty Much Had To Do It The Indians Paid A Lot For Their New Bullpen, But They Pretty Much Had To Do It

The Cleveland Indians, despite owning only the sixth-best record in the American League, have basically already clinched their spot in the playoffs, and are the only AL team that doesn’t have to worry about the wild card play-in game. Thanks to the putrid AL Central and its one (1) team with a record over .500, the…

Indians Cede Winning Run To Yankees On Delightful Little League Homer

The Indians and Yankees were tied at four apiece in the top of the seventh Saturday night when Austin Romine stepped to the plate and smoked a double to right center field. A slicing, dangerous hit, an easy stand-up two-bagger. Until!

Lazy Baseball Nicknames Helped The Reds Beat The Indians Lazy Baseball Nicknames Helped The Reds Beat The Indians

The Indians suffered a pretty humiliating loss to the Reds Tuesday night, surrendering seven runs in the ninth inning for a 7-4 defeat. The fatal blow came from Joey Votto, who plated three runs with a bases-loaded double against newly entered right-handed reliever Dan Otero.

Action Hero Bradley Zimmer Lays Out For Tremendous Diving Grab

Ryan LaMarre of the Twins smashed a ball deep to left center in the second inning of today’s Indians-Twins game, where it very much had the look of a standup RBI double. That was before Indians centerfielder Bradley Zimmer came soaring in for the acrobatic highlight grab:

Trevor Bauer Wrote "BD 911" On The Mound Before His Start [Update] Trevor Bauer Wrote "BD 911" On The Mound Before His Start [Update]

Trevor Bauer, the Indians pitcher who loves both funny numbers and casually suggesting conspiracy theories, wrote “BD 911” on the back of the pitching mound before the first pitch of his start against the Cubs. Here’s video of him carving with his cleats in the dirt, then appearing to admire his work.

Worthless Jedi Absolutely Humiliated By Cunning Novice

Astros mascot Orbit, who is also apparently a Jedi, was challenged to a lightsaber duel by Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor on Friday. Gotta say, I am starting to believe more and more in Luke Skywalker’s bitter “actually the Jedi are busters” preachings:

MLB Warns Mike Clevinger For Having Fun With His Cleats MLB Warns Mike Clevinger For Having Fun With His Cleats

Mike Clevinger recently wore some cleats embossed with a pretty chill custom cosmic elephant paint job that artist Jonathan Hrusovsky characterized as having a “#bohemianelephant” vibe.

Indians Pitchers Ponder The Existence Of Multiple Earths Indians Pitchers Ponder The Existence Of Multiple Earths

Carlos Carrasco carried the Cleveland Indians to a 6-2 win over the Brewers this afternoon. But all the fun for the AL Central division leaders didn’t seem to come until after the game, as shown by a Twitter poll put out into the world by Cleveland pitcher Brady Aiken.

Trevor Bauer, Lover Of Logic And Facts, Casually Suggests Astros Are Doctoring Pitches [Update] Trevor Bauer, Lover Of Logic And Facts, Casually Suggests Astros Are Doctoring Pitches [Update]

Professor Trevor Bauer is at it again. The Indians pitcher and science knower weighed in on a question to Driveline Baseball founder Kyle Boddy about whether the Houston Astros’ pitching staff could be using some sort of illicit substance to increase their spin rate:

ESPN Fawns Over The Intelligence Of Trevor Bauer, Who Is A Big Dumb Asshole ESPN Fawns Over The Intelligence Of Trevor Bauer, Who Is A Big Dumb Asshole

Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is one of those athletes who seems custom-built to confuse sportswriters. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick is the latest to get hoodwinked.

Francisco Lindor Dinged A Homer In San Juan And Everyone Went Nuts

Cleveland and Minnesota are playing baseball in San Juan tonight, which marks Puerto Rico’s first meaningful MLB game since 2010. That makes this otherwise pretty random April match-up extremely meaningful for Cleveland’s most lovable player—shortstop Francisco Lindor. Lindor was born in Caguas, 20 miles from San…

MLB Prospect Sues Lending Firm For "Unconscionable" And "Exploitative" Behavior MLB Prospect Sues Lending Firm For "Unconscionable" And "Exploitative" Behavior

Big League Advance Fund is a company owned by former MLB pitcher Michael Schwimer. The company, of which Browns President Paul DePodesta is a board member, is apparently in the business of seeking out up-and-coming baseball prospects and paying them a chunk of money up front in exchange for a massive cut of their…

In Celebration Of Jackie Robinson Day, MLB Presents Racist Commemorative Cap In Celebration Of Jackie Robinson Day, MLB Presents Racist Commemorative Cap

This is the sort of disgraceful bind an organization works its way into when it offsets the progress of finally acknowledging the offensive nature of a team’s racist caricature logo by then continuing to sell merchandise featuring the racist caricature logo in order to appease the team’s very worst fans:

Indians Fans Taunt, Mock, And Scream Obscenities At Native American Protesters At Home Opener

The Cleveland Indians finally made the decision to at least scale back the use of the Chief Wahoo logo, starting next season, when the racist caricature will be removed from Indians uniforms, mostly so that the Cleveland Indians will be allowed to host the 2019 MLB All-Star Game. It’s a half-measure, and a cynical…

And Here's An Inside-The-Park Home Run By ... Edwin Encarnacion?? And Here's An Inside-The-Park Home Run By ... Edwin Encarnacion??

This isn’t as iconic an entry into the genre of unexpected inside-the-park home runs as, say, this Prince Fielder gem or this Jhonny Peralta one, but it’s still pretty dang good: Edwin Encarnacion tonight, with his first inside-the-parker in more than a decade, thanks to a little defensive fuck-up by left fielder…

Baseball Hall Of Fame Retires Chief Wahoo Before The Cleveland Indians Baseball Hall Of Fame Retires Chief Wahoo Before The Cleveland Indians

Cleveland Indians legend Jim Thome got a well-deserved first-ballot Hall of Fame nod this year, and after some apparent discussion, as well as a specific request by Thome, the slugger will go in on a plaque bearing the Cleveland “Block C” logo, rather than the “Chief Wahoo” Native American caricature that Thome wore…

Roger Goodell Assures Everyone Washington Football Team Will Remain Racist Despite Chief Wahoo Removal Roger Goodell Assures Everyone Washington Football Team Will Remain Racist Despite Chief Wahoo Removal

After the Cleveland Indians announced that they’ll be taking Chief Wahoo off of team uniforms by 2019, the Washington NFL team naturally drew scrutiny. Would they follow suit and ditch their comically racist name for something more palatable, or at least scrub their logo for something more neutral?
