The Cleveland Indians’ extended offseason
EHC’s Jim Pete and Mike Hattery discuss the Indians during the extended COVID-19 offseason, and what it could or should look like for the Indians’ system going forward in 2020, and beyond.
Francisco Lindor, Jose Ramirez, and the 2020 Hot Stove Season
Could the Cleveland Indians trade Francisco Lindor before the 2020 season? It’s not likely, but if they’re trying to maximize their return, sooner is better than later.
The Cleveland Indians vs. Jose Berrios
Jose Berrios is one of the best pitchers in baseball. After beating the Indians twice already this season, what can the Indians expect in their third match-up?
Bobby Bradley just keeps hitting BOMBS
The Cleveland Indians are searching for offense. Bobby Bradley is hitting home runs in bunches in Columbus. Is this a match made in heaven, or is the Cleveland fan base trying to push Bradley forward before he’s ultimately ready?

The Indians’ Shane Bieber is entering the land of giants
The Cleveland Indians’ rotation has been one of the best in baseball. With Mike Clevinger out, and Carlos Carrasco struggling, this is the perfect opportunity for Shane Bieber to break out, and that’s just what he’s doing.

The “Yan is Gone” effect at catcher
The Cleveland Indians will have a new look behind the plate in 2019. With Yan Gomes gone, can the Indians maintain Gomes-level production in the upcoming season?
Will the Indians interesting stories be enough?
Every team has a few questions to answer before the start of the 2019 Major League baseball season. Do the Indians have far too many for a playoff contending club? The EHC crew takes a dive into a few of those questions.
