Bieber sets MLB record as Tribe blanks Twins 2-0

BY ANDREW GUARINO
INDIANS BEAT WRITER
The Cleveland Indians defeated the Minnesota Twins Thursday night from Target field in Minneapolis Minnesota by a final score of 2-0.

The Indians starting pitching continued to roll Wednesday evening. Shane Bieber was outstanding, going eight innings, allowing only three hits, walking none, and striking out thirteen. Bieber only got into one jam the entire night and that was in the sixth inning when the Twins had the bases loaded with nobody out. Twins’ ace Jose Berrios was good as well but his pitching was at 96 after just five innings. The only mistake he made was a missed location on a fastball which Francisco Lindor took advantage of and hit a two-run home run to right field to give the Indians the 2-0 lead, which behind Bieber was all they would need and all they would get. Mike Karinchak would come on to pitch the ninth inning and retire the Twins in order and earn his first big league save.  Click here for the whole story
How many top 5 players did the Jacobs sign? The answer is none, time to stop calling the Dolans cheap Opinion by Tim Shirer
With the news that the Philadelphia Phillies are the front runner to sign Bryce Harper, the debate, which I personally think is an invalid debate and driven by Cleveland sports talk radio that loves to spin everything Indians in a negative way.

An Opening Day and Season Like No other  

BY ANDREW GAURINO
INDIANS BEAT WRITER
The Cleveland Indians kicked off the 2020 Major League Baseball regular season tonight vs. the Kansas City Royals. It will be an opening day and season like no other for a variety of reasons, so let’s take a look.
First off, one of the most noticeable things was no fans in attendance. Going back to the 2019 season home opener, it was the 27th straight time the Indians sold out opening day in a row. So, no fans in general was different, but especially for the home opener. Another element of the fans is the noise they bring to the ballpark, to the game itself, and for those watching on TV. Depending on what team you root for, they are doing a variety of things to make up for the lack of fans in attendance.    Click here for the whole mock draft

The coward Rob Manfred strikes again 
Opinion by Tim Shirer 

Rob Manfred in his time as Major League Baseball Commissioner has solidly cemented his place as one of the worst commissioners in American professional sports history. Now once again he has proved that he is also a coward when he failed to suspend any of the Miami Marlins players who broke COVID-19 protocol and went out on the town on their trip to Atlanta. NO SUSPENSION for these guys who put an entire league at risk because they are typical selfish pro athletes who were more concerned with having a night of fun than doing the right thing.  Click here for the whole story
