Posted on September 4, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine For the second straight season, the Cleveland Indians are making plans to move Jason Kipnis to center field.

Posted on September 1, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Mere hours before the waiver trade deadline, the Cleveland Indians made a bold move.

Posted on May 9, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine It’s practically raining no-hitters in baseball right now.

Agent Scott Boras had high […]

Posted on December 2, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Toronto Blue Jays have made a move to address what has been a paper thin infield in recent years.
