St. Louis Cardinals’ signing of Andrew Miller emphasizes bare-bones look of Cleveland Indians’ bullpen | cleveland.com

I’m not sad to see Miller go. If he was the same pitcher we got in 2016, I’d feel differently. He’s not. St. Louis overpaid. Miller was a boom or bust reliever for the Tribe. He helped pitch them to within one win of the 2016 World Series after being acquired from the Yankees in […]

The Yonder Alonso Trade is About 2019 for Both Teams | FanGraphs Baseball

UPDATED 5/26 – Kevin’s 2018 Baseball Tour

UPDATE: 6/22 INDIANS GAME REMOVED FROM SCHEDULE There are two activities I love to follow in the summer – drum corps and baseball.  I’m sure you’re already aware of my drum corps fixation, so let’s talk about baseball for a bit. I am very fortunate to have a lot of baseball within a couple hours […]

2016 Baseball Tour – Lake County Captains vs. Great Lakes Loons (6/24/2016)

Meanwhile, in single A ball (still)… I’m still doing the baseball tour even though the drum corps season is about to kick off. This time, I’m in Eastlake, Ohio, and I’m checking out the Lake County Captains, the Single A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, as they take on the Great Lakes Loons. Mud Hens, […]

2016 Baseball Tour – Mahoning Valley Scrappers vs. Batavia Muckdogs (6/27/2016)

Aaand it’s back to single A ball, this time short season. Hey, I didn’t say I was going in order of league. The Mahoning Valley Scrappers’ season is about to start as I write this. When I go to the game on the 27th, they’ll have played for just over a week. One of the […]

2016 Baseball Tour – Columbus Clippers vs. Rochester Red Wings (6/20/2016)

I’m not a Red Wings stalker, I swear… I get back to the Cleveland Indians minor league affiliates and head down to Columbus to catch the Clippers in action. Huntington Park is an incredibly beautiful stadium and was quite the experience when I went down there last year for my first ever Clippers game. I […]

2016 Baseball Tour – Toledo Mud Hens vs. Rochester Red Wings (6/18/16)

This is one instance where the game for me is secondary. This game between the Mud Hens (my first Mud Hens game!) and the Red Wings is also the first Glassmen Alumni Reunion. Many of my fellow Glassmen family members will be at the game as we get together and reminisce about our “experience of […]

2016 Baseball Tour – Cleveland Indians Vs. Chicago White Sox (6/17/16)

Hey! I made it to the big leagues! After watching the Indians take 3 of 4 from the Sox when we were in Chicago a couple weeks ago, I’m hoping to get a repeat performance from the Indians at home. Sugardale Dollar Dog Night is the promotion for this game, though I believe I’ll be […]
