CLEVELAND — For some time, the Indians have known that, eventually, there would be a day in which Shin-Soo Choo would likely don another franchise’s uniform. That day arrived on Tuesday, when the Tribe traded the right fielder to the Reds in a three-team, nine-player exchange that sent outfielder Drew Stubbs and pitcher Trevor Bauer …

The Indians moderately long regional nightmare is over: they played the Twins today. They won 6-2. And they ended the 11 game losing streak. They can certainly thank their Opening Day starter and their biggest bat: Justin Masterson went seven innings allowing two runs on three hits and Shin-Soo Choo went 4 for 4 with …
Jorge Arangure of ESPN.com passes along word from reporter Yancen Pujols that Indians right-hander Fausto Carmona was arrested in the Dominican Republic and is being charged with using a false identity.

Thanks to a grand slam by Victor Martinez, Justin Verlander picked up his major league-best 22nd win of the season as the Tigers held on for an 8-6 victory over the Indians.

Arguably Josh Tomlin has been the Indians’ most consistent pitcher this season, behind Justin Masterson, after throwing another quality start against the Royals last night. His ERA currently sits at 2.33, and his WHIP sits at a stunning 0.89. [...]
Finally, some news of significance in regards to the Cleveland Indians.
I am pretty confident in saying the Indians have had the quietest offseason of any team this winter. Not one significant free agent signed, not one significant free agent lost, not one significant trade, not one nothing from the Indians.
The most significant move the Indians[...]
Stew lieutenant David Brown has shifted to Arizona, and his desert swing took him Sunday to Goodyear, home to (among another) the Cleveland Indians. The Tribe is still looking to fill Victor Martinez’s(notes) chest protector with a replacement after last season’s deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Lou Marson(notes) (middle) seems like the guy …
What a horrible few years the 64-92 Cleveland Indians have had. Eric Wedge will finish out what’s left of the season, but will not be fulfilling the final year of his contract. And the rest of the coaching staff is going with him. When a manager gets fired, this question often arises: Who’s fault is …
