Well, all the loud-mouthed dummies (the author included amongst them) can finally, enthusiastically be to to shut it. After a mediocre start to the second half, the Indians swept an entire homestand. And though they somehow only managed to gain a half game on the Royals, things seem to finally be looking up in Tribe Town.

Indians 2, Angels 1

A rare gem by Trevor Bauer and the continued hot hitting of Carlos Santana helped the Indians sweep the LA Trouts in the last game of this short homestand. Also, don’t look now, but a certain team may be sitting pretty with the 4th best record in MLB currently.

Indians news

Bauer surge: job in jeopardy, Trevor twirls a gem |

The Indians are on the verge of cutting down their six-man rotation, and Trevor Bauer’s name appeared to be first on the chopping block. He needed a big game yesterday to prove his worth, and boy did he ever “clutch up” in the words of Tito Francona.

Not surprisingly, Lindor and the Indians are surging together |

Francisco Lindor is riding a seven-game hitting streak. The Indians are in the midst of a seven-game winning streak. Coincidence?! ... ... ... yeah, it’s probably coincidence. But still, it’s hard to deny that it sure feels like those two things go together for a reason.

Anatomy of a walk-off celebration: how Josh Tomlin became “The Powder King” |

With due respect to Dr. Mario, what fun is a walkoff celebration without a cloud of particulate matter flung in the general direction of the eyes of men whose livelihoods depend on hand-eye coordination? If you don’t like it, then as with many other things you don’t like, feel free to blame it on Josh Tomlin.

"I was like, 'That would be pretty bad if our star shortstop can't breathe and chokes out on the field,'" Tomlin said.

Um, yeah, Josh. That would be bad. Definitely bad.
