  • Road to a championship. An Indians Franchise

    Hello! I have been doing dynasties on other websites, and have always been intrigued reading others dynasties on here, so I figured I would start my own! I wanted to do the Indians because they seemed very interesting. Even though their team is lights out in real life, on paper they still aren't perfect, so it will be fun to address the problems.

    A late spring training trade has come about between the Indians and Rangers, as Cleveland will acquire catcher Brett Nicholas (D, 71) for 19 year old starter Juan Hillman (C, 57) and current backup catcher Chris Gimenez (C, 65). Nicholas will serve the same duties as Gimenez is currently, backing up catcher Roberto Perez. The Indians regular catcher, Yan Gomes, is out until mid-September with a leg injury, so this could be a very important move down the road.

      Game 1 of the Indians 2016 season is now in the books, as the Indians win it 7-6. It was a very high scoring game, as 13 runs came across. Corey Kluber was dealing until Jackie Bradley Jr game up in the 5th with the bases loaded, with the score, 6-2, and hit a home run to tie it, which lead to the end of Kluber's day. As for the Red Sox starter, David Price was awful. He went 3.2 innings, allowing 6 of the 7 Indian runs, including 3 in the first. The game remained tied until the bottom half of the 8th, when catcher Roberto Perez hit a go-ahead double, scoring pinch runner Coco Crisp. The score held up for closer Andrew Miller, and he came in to close out the game, getting his first save of the year. Game two of the series is next, as Danny Salazar toes the mound for the Indians, going up against Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz.

        The Indians have made one more minor move early this season, this time claiming lefty Michael Roth (D, 58) off waivers from the Rangers. He was released in response to the Cleveland-Texas trade, and the Indians saw something in him that they liked and claimed him. The 26 year old Roth will begin the season with the Double-A Akron RubberDucks.

          Todays game was the exact opposite of yesterday's, as it was a true pitchers duel. Only 3 runs came across to score. The first, coming on an RBI by Jackie Bradley Jr, hitting in Xander Bogaerts on a single. Then, Bradley came up again in the 3rd, and launched a solo home run into the right field seats, about 20 rows back. After the homer, Indians starter Danny Salazar began to get into his rhythm, but it was to little to late, as the Indians were only able to respond with one run of their own, coming on a ground out RBI by Rajai Davis. Drew Pomeranz was great for Boston, allowing only 4 hits in 6 innings, before handing the ball over to his bullpen for 3 innings of work. Craig Kimbrel then came on in the 9th, and clinched his first save of the season.
