    Derek Jeter’s farewell tour continued this evening at Progressive Field in Cleveland and the Yankee captain walked away with some pretty cool gifts.

    Jun 12, 2014, 3:28 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Cleveland Indians

    Nick Swisher is back from the disabled list and in the Indians’ lineup for tonight’s game after missing the past two weeks with a hyperextended left knee. To make room on the roster for his return Jason Giambi is headed to the disabled list with left knee inflammation.

  7. Lonnie Chisenhall’s brilliance could spell the end of Jason Giambi’s career

    Jun 10, 2014, 9:46 AM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    Lonnie Chisenhall has earned the right to be the Indians’ everyday third baseman. Which will have some ripple effects once Nick Swisher returns.

  8. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 29, 2014, 7:01 AM EDT

    Phillies celebrate

    Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

  9. Indians ready to welcome Jason Giambi back

    May 19, 2014, 4:40 PM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Cleveland will activate designated hitter/bench bat Jason Giambi from the disabled list on Tuesday, manager Terry Francona just announced.

    Who’s next? Brosius? Mariano Duncan? Irabu?

  12. Jason Giambi is back on the Indians’ roster at age 43

    Apr 21, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Jason Giambi began the season on the disabled list with a broken rib, but the 43-year-old designated hitter is back on the Indians’ active roster now.

  13. Jason Giambi has a broken rib

    Mar 13, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Cleveland Indians

    Whatever chance Jason Giambi had of making the Indians’ active roster out of spring training is gone now, as the veteran designated hitter suffered a broken rib from being hit by a pitch Friday. Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Giambi is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 weeks and he was…

  14. Derek Jeter is not your anti-PEDs avatar

    Feb 13, 2014, 5:21 PM EDT

    New York Yankees Photo Day

    I have zero reason to think that Derek Jeter ever used PEDs. I’d personally be surprised if he did. As would I assume most people. But I also think that his use or lack thereof, absent any actual information about it, is pretty irrelevant to our consideration of him as a player. There’s plenty there…

  15. A first in 15 years: 2014 will open without a member of the 500-HR club

    Feb 1, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols

    With Alex Rodriguez spending the season on the restricted list, this season will be the first since 1999 to begin without a member of the 500-homer club on a major league roster. The last time MLB was played without a 500-HR guy was 15 years ago. Eddie Murray retired after the 1997 season, leaving a…

  16. The massive Hall of Fame post

    Jan 7, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    The Hall of Fame ... has never really married its two founding visions.  Some people still view it as Alexander Cleland’s place for parents and children to enjoy the history of baseball and maybe go to the field for a catch. Some view it the way Ford Frick did, as baseball’s “Hall of Great Americans,” to honor players who represent the fundamental principles that make up the spirit of the American people.

    Part I: A short history First, just a little bit of history. The Baseball Hall of Fame, more or less, was the brainchild of two people. The first knew nothing whatsoever about baseball. The second romanticized the game beyond all reason. You can think about whose spirit still lingers over Cooperstown, N.Y. The first was…

  17. 2014 Free Agent Tracker

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue. Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere. (Non-tenders have…

  18. When will the Yankees regret the Jacoby Ellsbury contract?

    Dec 4, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    ellsbury

    These huge, later-career deals never turn out great. The best you can hope for when you sign a 30-something baseball player to a hugely expensive long-term deal is that he will have a couple of good years on the front end to boost up his value, have a nice rebound year somewhere in the middle,…

  19. Carlos Santana is working out at third base

    Nov 25, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Normally when you have a good-hitting catcher who doesn’t profile as a Gold Glover, you think about making him a DH or a first baseman. The Indians aren’t doing that with Carlos Santana, however. Paul Hoynes reports that they’ve talked to him about playing third base down in the Dominican Republic this year and have…

  20. Did PED users cost Frank Thomas four MVP awards?

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:31 AM EDT

    Frank Thomas

    Frank Thomas is one of the best hitters of my lifetime and that guy should be in the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, no question. He’s also a Hall-of-Fame-level call-out-his-contemporaries-on-their-PED-use-guy. Inner circle. He was at it again the other night at a speaking engagement: “I was the one player who was hurt the…

  21. Indians re-sign Jason Giambi

    Oct 31, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Jason Giambi‘s coaching career will have to wait a bit longer. In addition to releasing closer Chris Perez the Indians also announced that they’ve re-signed Giambi to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training. Giambi hit just .183 for the Indians at age 42, but did manage nine homers in 186 at-bats, including…

  22. So, what’s the market for Billy Butler anyway?

    Oct 22, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Josh Phegley, Jerry Meals, Billy Butler

    This kind of doubles as a “what’s the market for Kendrys Morales?” post, too. Anyway, the Royals have let it be known that Billy Butler is available, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. Had they done this a year ago, they would have been in line for a nice return. Now? Probably not so much. Butler…

  23. The Indians want Jason Giambi back next year, no matter what

    Oct 9, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Jason Giambi will be 43 years-old next season and he has not been a full-time player since he left the Yankees following the 2008 campaign. But, unlike so many younger guys (and unlike a lot of better hitters) Giambi will not have to search around for a roster spot next spring. Indeed, on Monday both…

  25. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 25, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 5, White Sox 4: Unbelievable. Chris Perez blows a save in the top of the ninth and the ancient Jason Giambi picks him and the Indians up in the bottom, smacking a two-run walkoff homer. Still life in that old bat. Still life in the Indians, who remain in wild card position. Rangers 3,…
