Tribe Time Now #19: Down the Carlos Santana Rabbit Hole

In this episode of the Tribe Time Now podcast…

 

Mike Brandyberry (@didtribewin) of Did the Tribe Win Last Night? joins Jim Pete (@jimpeteehc) of Everybody Hates Cleveland. In this episode, Mike and Jim talk about where the Indians currently stand in the landscape of baseball, ponder what in the hell is going on with the Tigers, take a look at the inside moves the Tribe has made of late and whether there are any more they can make, and discuss potential trades at the deadline.

Topics:

  • The Indians are in “pretention”
  • Why do the Tigers always kick our teeth in?
  • Did the Indians move too slowly in bringing up Urshela, Lindor & Anderson?
  • Do the Indians have the guts to dump Bourn and/or Swisher?
  • Can the Indians do anything at the deadline?
  • The Carlos Santana puzzle piece, does he fit with the Indians, will they trade him?

Tribe Time Now Weekend Update #11: The Will to Win

In this episode of Tribe Time Now Weekend Update…

 

In order to get an outside perspective on the Indians offensive struggles, Joe (@BRBBlog) enlisted Cincinnati Reds super fan and founder of The Will to Win Sports, Will Hart (@TWTWSports) for the Weekend Update. The truth may hurt, but it needed to be said. Among the various topics covered in this very special episode were the Indians leader in TWTW (The Will to Win), why Carlos Santana doesn’t have it, what TWTW really means, why Omar Infante deserves to start in the All-Star game and why Corey Kluber is a loser. Finally, we get down to brass tacks about which is better, WAR or GRIT, a win or a loss and Applebees or Chilis.

Topics:

  • No Runs
  • Blame Carlos
  • TWTW
  • All-Stars
  • Kluber is a Loser
  • WAR
