The Tribe led, 5-2, after taking a lead against NL MVP Clayton Kershaw. Davis made an over-the-shoulder catch in the first, then threw out Yasiel Puig trying for a double in the second. Bauer allowed one run in five innings, while Cowgill doubled, tripled and walked. Napoli is hitting over .450.

ESPN’s Buster Olney names Cleveland Indians the no. 2 starting pitching rotation in top 10 list


From top to bottom: Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar

We know we have a pretty special starting rotation looking forward to the 2016 season, but we’re not the only ones who think so.

ESPN’s Buster Olney named the Tribe’s starting rotation as number two on his MLB’s top 10 rotations column – second only to the New York Mets. From his column:

Rotation candidates: Corey KluberCarlos CarrascoDanny SalazarTrevor BauerCody AndersonJosh Tomlin

One rival evaluator attached the Indians to the Mets in assessing what’s ahead of them in the next few years. “No matter what else happens, that starting pitching gives them a chance to win,” he said. “They might have holes in their lineup, but the pitching is their equalizer.”

Last season, Indians starters led the majors in strikeouts, averaging almost one per inning (969 in 979 1/3), and they held opponents to a .235 batting average, the lowest in the AL. Kluber had a strange, luckless year in 2015 after winning the Cy Young Award in 2014, and the Indians can reasonably expect that the 29-year-old will have a better season in 2016.

The difference between very good and great for the Indians’ rotation might be Bauer, who can drive teammates crazy with his inconsistency; he had 10 starts in which he allowed five or more earned runs, and 12 in which he allowed zero or one earned run. If Bauer takes another step forward — and the rotation stays relatively healthy — the Indians’ rotation could propel Cleveland to a postseason berth.

Cleveland Indians players, coaches describe their favorite Thanksgiving treats


Like the rest of us, Cleveland Indians players enjoy traditional — and maybe some no-so traditional — Thanksgiving treats. We asked some of our guys about their holiday favorites, and here’s what they had to say:

Roberto Perez: Turkey, rice and beans – we have different traditions in Puerto Rico

Cody Anderson: Stuffing

Jeff Manship: Stuffing

Carlos Carrasco: Turkey

Austin Adams: Smoked turkey – cook it on a smoker and over coals for 12 hours

We also got these responses when we asked the question a few years back:


Terry Francona: Stuffing! The real stuffing. Not that (crap) in a box.

Bryan Shaw: My favorite Thanksgiving dish is deep-fried turkey because frying the turkey is fun — I do it myself while other stuff is cooking inside.

Corey Kluber: Favorite dish is my mom’s turkey soup because it was something special we only had on Thanksgiving.

Yan Gomes: Sweet potatoes.

Josh Tomlin: Turkey and dressing that my grandmother makes and broccoli and cheese casserole.

Trevor Bauer: Favorite dish is between cranberry sauce on biscuits and twice baked potatoes. Favorite dessert is my sister’s cherry pie.

Mike Sarbaugh: Pecan Pie. I always look forward to warming up a piece of pecan pie with vanilla ice cream on top.
