Eventually, I'm sure I'll be able to write a N&N that includes the results of a game on the previous day. Sadly, today is not that day. It's difficult to find news on days without games, but I'll give it a whirl!
Tyler Naquin has been waiting to be in the starting lineup for a long time. This past Wednesday, he had his first (and only) chance to start in a major league game. Despite having only played in the one game thus far, Naquin is excited to get back into the lineup and prove that he deserves a spot on this team. I'm pulling for you, Tyler. Lead us to a #championship!
I think we can all agree that the weather from last week had something personal against the Tribe. Not only did we have
When you talk about the color barrier and its inevitable fall in MLB, the one name that is consistently brought up (and rightfully so) is Jackie Robinson. However, as many Cleveland fans know, there was another very important player that history books don't talk about as much, and that is Larry Doby. Doby was the first African-American player to play in the American League when he signed with the Cleveland Indians 3 months after Robinson began playing in Brooklyn.
Around The League
- Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies had an incredible week last week (.333/.357/1.111 with 7 HRs), and some of his game used artifacts are already resting in Cooperstown. However, Story refuses to give up his bat (maybe that was Chisenhall's mistake last year).
- As the Red Sox headed back to Fenway for their home opener, it was an emotional day for David Ortiz.
- Apparently, the new nightclub/spaceship structure that has been built in the Cubs clubhouse is going to lead them to the World Series. Can we get one too?
- Tigers fans get everything, including multiple foul balls. And, to make matters worse, he gave them to children.
There's a roof over our heads for today's game, so barring some cataclysmic event, we should see some Tribe baseball this afternoon. LET'S GO TRIBE!!!
