2013 in Review: Pinch Running

Continuing our review of the 2013 season, I take a look at how well Terry Francona used pinch runners last season.

Does changing leagues hurt players' base stealing?

Cleveland Indians leadoff man Michael Bourn saw his stolen base success fall greatly in 2014, his first season in the American League. Does changing leagues tend to hurt base stealers?

Expect increased Tribe hits in 2014. Here's why...

You might not think a .293 BABIP is all that bad, but considering their team speed and the type of contact they made, the 2013 Indians should have done even better. We'll take a look at why.

Pinch hitting for the Indians in 2013

A look at the 2013 production by players coming off the bench for the Cleveland Indians

Indians 2013 MVP #1: Jason Kipnis

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis had his best season yet and is Let's Go Tribe's choice as Indians 2013 MVP.

Indians 2013 MVP #2: Carlos Santana

Our 2013 in Review series continues with the criminally underrated Carlos Santana

Indians 2013 MVP #3: Justin Masterson

Our 2013 in Review series continues with the ace of the staff, Justin Masterson.

Indians 2013 MVP #4: Ubaldo Jimenez

One of the more shocking turnarounds in recent baseball history.

Indians 2013 MVP #5: Yan Gomes

Yan Gomes was hardly on the radar for Indians fans entering 2013, but now he looks like one of the most important players on the team.

Indians 2013 MVP #6: Ryan Raburn

The regular (but not quite regular) fixture in the 2013 lineup.

Indians 2013 MVP #7: Joe Smith

Our 2013 in Review series continues with the second longest tenured Indian, submariner Joe Smith.

Indians 2013 MVP #8: Nick Swisher

Our 2013 in Review series continues with the highest paid Indian, a player that came back "home."

Indians 2013 MVP #9: Corey Kluber

Corey Kluber of the Cleveland Indians was mediocre in 2012 and too old to feel like a prospect, but he surprised with a strong 2013 and now looks like a solid #3 starter.

Indians 2013 MVP #10: Michael Brantley

Is he good? Is he very good? Or is he bad? The community Rohrshach Test that is Dr. Smooth.

2013 in Review: Michael Bourn

Michael Bourn was signed by the Cleveland Indians to one of the largest contracts in franchise history, but his 2013, the first year of that deal, was something of a disappointment.

2013 in Review: Zach McAllister

If the Indians are to continue their winning ways the rest of the decade, Zach McAllister will be a major part of that.

2013 in Review: Lonnie Chisenhall

Cleveland Indians fans have been waiting for Lonnie Chisenhall to break out as a solid Major League third baseman for quite a while now. Did he get any closer in 2013?

2013 in Review: Danny Salazar

Danny Salazar went from a prospect way down the depth chart to Wild Card game starter in the span of one season.

2013 in Review: Columbus Clippers (AAA)

Finally we reach AAA, the highest level in the minor-league system.

2013 in Review: Cody Allen (Tribe's next closer?)

Cody Allen is a hard throwing righty and was one of the best arms in the Indians bullpen this year, and one of the best rookie relievers anywhere in baseball. He might even be the team's next closer.

2013 in Review: Asdrubal Cabrera

Our 2013 in Review series continues with the longest-tenured Indian, a player that figures to be mentioned quite a bit this winter in trade rumors.

2013 in Review: Akron Aeros (AA)

Next up is the most prospect-laden level in the organization.

Should Kazmir get a qualifying offer? UPDATE: poll

Little was expected when the Cleveland Indians signed Scott Kazmir to a minor league deal last winter, but he turned in a better season than anyone had any business hoping for. Now the team must decide how much it's worth to have him back in 2014.

2013 in Review: Mike Aviles

Next on our 2013 Cleveland Indians review, a look at one of the unsung heroes of the bench.

2013 in Review: Carolina Mudcats (A+)
