VIDEO: Trevor Bauer was behind the scenes again in Boston with his GoPro

A much more professional celly than the pandemonium that followed clinching the division in Detroit a few weeks ago. Pop a couple bottles, have a couple cold ones, but this is only step 1 of 3. I like that.

I also like Kip around the 5:45 mark.

And Bauer’s answer to Matty Underwood’s question.

“What’s it say about this pitching staff as a whole to hold the highest scoring team in the league to 7 runs?”

“We’re good. We’re really good.”

Yeah we are.

See you all Friday.

USA baby.


Paul Hoynes admitted he was wrong. Let’s check in on the comments section

When you’re wrong, you’re wrong.

That’s the headline of Cleveland Indians Postseason Antagonist/columnist Paul Hoynes’ latest article on Cleveland.com, posted shortly after the Tribe completed their ALDS sweep of the Red Sox last night in Boston.

In case you have absolutely no idea about anything happening in the city of Cleveland over the past few weeks and only found our blog because you were Googling a way to keep people out of your yard but also let them in sometimes that uses recycled plastic liquid containers, real quick cause we just won the ALDS and I’m sick of talking about it:

  • Danny Salazar hurt, shut down for the regular season on September 9th
  • Carlos Carrasco hurt, shut down for the season on September 17th
  • Hoynes writes this article on September 18th, completely writing off the Indians chances of having postseason success with 14 games left in the regular season, then takes a scheduled day off from work the following day.

Since then, the veteran reporter has turned into a sort of domestic motivational pincushion for players and fans alike. Some pokes in jest, some less so. Trevor Bauer and Jason Kipnis took to Twitter to express their knee-jerk reactions:

It was reported they weren’t the only ones in the clubhouse displeased with the words what were written.

Anyways, it seems last night’s series win presented an opportunity for some fence-mending between the two parties. He writes:

“Near the end of Monday’s celebration, Jason Kipnis said, “Will you at least admit you were wrong?”

I told him I was wrong.”

Corey Kluber offered up his own sign of peace:

Here’s hoping this narrative, which I’ll admit was fun at first, can finally be laid to rest. Hoynes gave his opinion, the players disagreed and proved his opinion to be wrong, he admitted as much, let’s turn the page.

Something tells me the commenters on Cleveland.com are more in favor of burning the page with fire.

Let’s take a look.









If I’m being honest, these weren’t nearly as vicious as I was expecting them to be. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. We need all hands on deck vs Canada in the ALCS.

Jason Kipnis fake fought Rougned Odor last night, made the Rangers dugout LOL

Former theoretical Indians catcher Jonathan Lucroy hit a tailor made double play ball to short in the 5th inning of last nights game. Francisco Lindor charged it and flipped to Jason Kipnis at second. Kip successfully completed the twin killing, but not before getting taken out by the Rangers player sliding into second base. That player happened to be serial instigator Rougned Odor. Hilarity ensued:


For reference, from earlier this year:

Ended up being hilarious, but my god that took some serious nuts from Kip there. How is he gonna take the joke? What if he jammed his finger sliding so he’s pissed off already, then he sees you ready to fake fight & takes you up on your offer? The Rangers were up 8-0 at that point so it wasn’t exactly a white knuckle moment of the game but you never know with little powder kegs like that. They can blow at any time.

Right when this happened, I got excited. Not because of the play itself, or anything having to do with the game. I got excited thinking about the arguments I would get to have with people who weren’t watching because it was a blowout but then would wake up to see this clip and immediately start bitching about Kipnis joking around with the other team when he’s down 8-0. Honest to God, I could hardly sleep.

So send those arguments over to @Bottlegate plz. It’s baseball, the season is 162 games long. We’re in first place. The fact that Kip even thought to do this instead of pouting and running back into the dugout with his head down because we were getting crushed should actually be lauded.

Bonus post game quotes from Kip. He crushed that as well.
