  1. Indians rise to AL stealth contender status

    Christina Kahrl

    Despite Sunday night's rain-delayed outcome, one thing has become clear in the AL Central race: The Cleveland Indians are cutting in on a dance many might have anticipated just the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers were invited to. You might have...

  2. Tigers' injuries narrow AL Central race

    Christina Kahrl

    If you went by star power and expectations alone, the Detroit Tigers were supposed to have long since sewed up the AL Central. But much as they had trouble fending off the Cleveland Indians last year, this year it looks as if events will conspire to ...

  3. Can the Indians come back this season?

    Christina Kahrl

    Is it too soon to count out the Tribe? After Monday's walk-off win at the Tigers' expense ended their recent losing streak, it's worth looking at what has to happen to get last year's wild-card surprise back in the running in the AL wild-card race. H...

  4. Carlos Santana settling in at third base

    Christina Kahrl

    Starting with the standard "just a 10th of the way into the season" caveat, one of the things that's been interesting to check out about the Indians is how much Carlos Santana has been inked into the lineup at the hot corner. That's because the big o...

  5. Indians should trade Cabrera to Mets

    Christina Kahrl

    So, you think Cleveland Indians shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor might be ready for the show, do you? Paul Swydan makes a great case for why the Tribe should turn to one of the game's top 10 prospects, not just to reap defensive benefits but to fo...

  6. Xmas Day-after: You've got loot

    Christina Kahrl

    Christmas Day has come and gone, giving fans a chance to say what so many major league free agents get to around this time of year: "I got mine!" The spirit of the holiday season amounts to much more than mere goodies, of course. But if you're a base...

  7. My AL Manager of the Year ballot, explained

    Christina Kahrl

    This was as tough a year to pick a top AL skipper as I can remember because you could make a compelling case for at least five guys: finalists John Farrell of the Red Sox, Terry Francona of the Indians and Bob Melvin of the Athletics, as well as Joe ...

  8. Kazmir comeback mirrors Tribe's WC bid

    Christina Kahrl

    It's easy to observe that every game counts equally over six months' worth of season, but the sense of the stakes comes into focus when it's one-or-done territory. And it's even more interesting to talk about because of what changes about a team with...

  9. Takes a Tribe to grind down Verlander

    Christina Kahrl

    Say you're the Cleveland Indians. You've been one of baseball's hottest teams, but you're in Detroit against the defending pennant winners, you got routed in the first game of the series, and you're facing Justin Verlander, who's still on top...

  10. Need to add O, how about a platoon?

    Christina Kahrl

    It's easy to say spring training means nothing, that clubs know their rosters, and action from the Cactus or Grapefruit Leagues is just a time-filling cash cow that's about three weeks too long. But there are elective decisions to be made, and as muc...

  11. Clearing the Bases: Lowe notes & Oh ... man

    Christina Kahrl

    First: Derek Lowe spun his first shutout in nearly seven years? OK, that's interesting, but hey, it was the Twins; they're terrible. And he induced four DP grounders? That's pretty cool, but part of what goes with the territory facing a balls in play...

  12. Move of the Day: Choo leads off

    Christina Kahrl

    Not every move involves rosters: Some just involve putting your better assets to work. Case in point: Today's lineup card for the Cleveland Indians, which featured Shin-Soo Choo batting leadoff, something Manny Acta started trying just yesterday. ...

  13. State of that other division, the AL Central

    Christina Kahrl

    We're almost a fifth of the way into the season, and many of the expected storylines in both leagues have gotten the usual attention. The East divisions get the attention because both provide full five-team tangles of contenders and pretenders, with ...

  14. Roster roundup: Finding room for Doumit

    Christina Kahrl

    Please think these things through: The Twins might be bad on offense, but Ron Gardenhire's being a worrywart over having Joe Mauer and Ryan Doumit in the same lineup is a way to make a bad lineup worse. The issue is that Mauer and Doumit are his two ...

  15. First-base question marks

    Christina Kahrl

    On Tuesday I ran through Freddie Freeman's projections and reasons to feel good and bad about his 2012, but there's a larger point to make about young first basemen these days, starting with this: Freeman's one of the success stories. Look around ...

  16. Will 2012 see too many 100-loss teams?

    Christina Kahrl

    Where were you when the game embraced the new bad? Not the old bad, mind you -- depending on which generation you're in, that could mean the Major League Indians in the '80s, or it might be the Kansas City A's. Those were teams so hapless and hopeles...
