Cleveland Indians Newsbeat
Monday, September 19, 2016
Saturday afternoon Carlos Carrasco suffered a fractured finger when his second pitch of the game was lined back up the middle. The injury almost certainly means his season over, a tough break for the pitcher and for the Cleveland Indians, whose starting rotation will also be without All-Star Danny Salazar the rest of the way. Paul Hoynes, Indians beat writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer (and its internet arm, Cleveland.com), tweeted “Sept. 17: Remember the date because that’s when Indians’ postseason dreams ended before they began.” The purpose of the tweet was to send out a link to his recap of the day’s game, which opened with the line, “The Indians won a ballgame Saturday afternoon, but their postseason dreams ended.” If you notice how definitive Hoynes’ choice of words was, you are not alone.
Sunday morning Tribe second baseman Jason Kipnis quote-tweeted Hoynes, adding “The don’t bother showing up the rest of the way… Can write from home if you already know how this one plays out!” As it turns out, Hoynes did stay home on Sunday. He explained later it was a scheduled day off, and I fully believe that, but not everyone in the Tribe clubhouse was interested in explanations. Trevor Bauer, probably the team’s most-active tweeter, and rarely one to sugarcoat what he’s thinking, tweeted, “I noticed @hoynsie wasn’t at the game today doing his job like the rest of us were. To say what he did and then not show up for work? #coward”

Donald Trump’s campaign is considering booking one of Cleveland’s big sports venues for his acceptance speech in July, two GOP sources familiar with the planning of the upcoming GOP convention say.
The sources said First Energy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns, and Progressive Field, home of the city’s Indians baseball team, are the two sites under consideration for Trump’s acceptance speech on the final night of the convention.

All four were right-handed and possessed excellent fastballs. The oldest of the quartet was an American hero and one of the most famous athletes in the world. Another was the son of immigrants who could hardly speak English but who had what Ted Williams called an “unhittable pitch.” One of them was a pitcher by necessity: he had started his ballplaying career as an outfielder but switched to the mound after it became apparent that he couldn’t hit breaking pitches. The final member of the group was a mean-tempered competitor who honed his craft under the guidance of one of the best pitching coaches in baseball history, the same coach who helped two of the others fill out their repertoire of pitches. Combined they were the Great Rotation, separately they were all aces and three of them ended up with a plaque in Cooperstown.
