During the end of an almost four hour rain delay, Cleveland Indians infielder Mike Aviles called up manager Terry Francona to ask permission to do a traditional tarp slide.
“I asked him if we could,” Aviles said of his brief chat with Francona. “He didn’t really say, ‘No,’ but he didn’t really say, ‘Yeah.’ I didn’t hear a, ‘No.’ It was like a, ‘Maybe.’ It counts. You’ve just got to read between the lines.”
If you are a baseball fan then there are certain things you know to be true.
Like hot dogs always taste better at the ballpark and peanuts are a must at every game. Also, you know that you never, ever, under any circumstance mention a no-hitter or perfect game while in progress. You just don’t. The players won’t even talk to a pitcher who is bidding for one.
The all seeing eyes of TMZ recently caught up with the Velvet Teddybear Ruben Studdard and found out an interesting fact about one of his biggest hits.
It was co-written by former Cleveland Indian Kenny Lofton.
Studdard told the photog that Kenny Lofton did serious writing work on the hit “What If” from his 2003 album “Soulful”.
The Indians stopped Masahiro Tanaka’s bid to become the first 13 game winner in the Majors on Tuesday and most of the credit can be given to Nick Swisher and Michael Brantley.
Brantley led the team with 2 doubles, 1 home run and 3 of their RBI. Swisher also chipped in with a two-run blast that put the Tribe on top for good in the sixth.
A lot of people are against the new MLB review policy. The Cleveland Indians are not those people.
Last night during their game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Tribe turned one of the crazier triple plays we’ve ever seen.
In the bottom of the 4th inning, Adrian Gonzalez hit a liner to Michael Brantley in left field. Brantley caught it and unloaded his cannon of an arm to the plate. Catcher Yan Gomes got the perfect throw and laid the tag down on Dee Gordon.
Yan Gomes then turned and fired a strike to a waiting Jason Kipnis at second base who got his tag down just before Yasiel Puig got there.
The Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers in extra innings last night after Michael Brantley belted a laser beam home run over the right field wall. It was their second walk off of the year. Everyone at Progressive Field was going bananas. Everyone except may this bro who tried his best to catch a ball tossed by Asdrubal Cabrera with his face.
Nyjer Morgan had a pretty good day at the ball park yesterday in Tampa when his Cleveland Indians took on the Tampa Bay Rays. He went 3-for-4 with a home run and clubbed in 2 RBI. Not bad production for a guy who was playing in Japan last year.
But if you know anything about Nyjer Morgan, you know it is never that simple.
One of his hits was a check swing dribbler down the line that actually scored a run. The other, was a bunt where he was initially called out, but after review called safe. Also, he went ass over tin cups and literally fell face first on the bag.
“I got out over my skiis,” he said.
