God Is Real: Manny Ramirez Will Play for Japan’s Kochi Fighting Dogs

The baseball world is objectively better off when Manny Ramirez is playing in it. You know this, I know this, and God knows this. So you can imagine my despair when I thought Ramirez’s Hall of Fame playing career might finally be over when he became a coach (although I’m fairly certain it was a situation where he just showed up in the clubhouse one day and no one asked him to leave) for the Chicago Cubs. Not so fast!...

9 New Names for Cleveland’s Baseball Team

While I would have liked to join in on cheering for my home city’s team during the World Series, I’m unwilling to use such an offensive name. So let’s change it! Lots of people have suggested name ideas, including returning to old team names like the Lake Shores, Spiders, and Naps.

A Cleveland-Chicago-Cleveland Transplant’s World Series Thoughts

As a child in suburban Ohio, I loved baseball. I had two favorite teams for very different reasons. I loved the Cleveland Indians because I had been going to games since I was a toddler (it was easy to go to these games when about 72,000 of the 78,000 seats were empty) and I loved the Chicago Cubs because they were on TV during the daytime over summer and on days I stayed home from school. Many of my baseball-loving friends were the...

That Time Terry Francona Roasted Me

Back in 2013, I was covering the Cleveland Indians for the Associated Press and the team was hovering around .500 while playing some fairly atrocious defense at times. You might be surprised given the fact that the team is now a defensive powerhouse, but believe me, it should have been illegal to watch Cleveland play defense a few years ago. Remember, they were once experimenting with Carlos Santana at third base. During one...
