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.
Jim KNOWS that Albert Belle deserved the MVP, and that the false prophet, Mo Vaughn did not. He thinks that Mike and Greg Pruitt are truly related, because, c'mon, what are the chances? He cries at least once a day, watching videos of LeBron's block, followed by Kyrie's shot. He loves miracles at Richfield, Ron Harper, parking at Gate D, Alex Cole park dimensions, and the glorious Kenny Lofton, who is the REAL Alex Cole. When he isn't writing or talking Cleveland sports for EHC, he moonlights as a husband, father, coach, teacher, Twitter screamer, golfer, runner, and lover of spaghetti carbonara. He also commutes from Raleigh to the North Coast, because it builds character
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.
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?
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?
Is there a bigger rage in Cleveland right now than prospect Oscar Mercado? Here’s why folks are so high on a Mercado call-up.
Your Cleveland Indians were swept by a 2-10 Kansas City Royals, who had lost ten games in a row. Your starting rotation is down one starter to injury, and two starters to struggle. Your All-World shortstop hasn’t played an out, there’s no depth, and your other All-World infielder is playing badly. So why is Brad Miller such a big deal?
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.
Jose Ramirez is currently mired in a beginning of the year slump. While many are compiling multiple months worth of data over the past two seasons, JRam likely isn’t going through a lasting struggle. This is just part of the bigger, smarter picture. Hitters are going to hit, it’s just a matter of time.
The Cleveland Indians have a lot of interesting stories in the outfield, but if you put the book together, the novel isn’t necessarily one you want to read.
The Cleveland Indians have a lot of unanswered questions in 2019, but perhaps the biggest one is Jason Kipnis. Kipnis is currently injured, which isn’t a great start, but if he can come back healthy, and continue his swing change improvements, perhaps he can roll out one more big season.
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?
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.

One of the All-Time Indians’ greats is gone. Al Rosen, perhaps the greatest Tribe third baseman of all-time, passed away Friday night at the age of 91. While his career was relatively short, […]
You can almost smell it, can’t you. If you close your eyes and take a deep breath, you can catch a distant whiff of baseball at Progressive Field; the hot dogs covered […]

Saturday Night Live. Is there anything more uniquely tied to Americana than those three words. Over the past 40 years, SNL has done something that’s unmatched in Hollywood: it’s lasted. The cast […]
The Cleveland Indians rotation. It almost needs a line all to itself. Cy Young award winner Corey Kluber helped morph a “rag-tag” group of unproven starters into one of the best rotations in […]
With the gray haze of February weighing down the North Coast, and six more weeks of Winter looming thanks to that dumb ground hog in Punxsatawny, it’s hard to believe that this […]
