The Indians had the day off yesterday which means no recap. In it’s place, another set of the hottest Cleveland Indian links the internet has to offer. In today’s edition, we keep a former leader of the Tribe in our thoughts, Drew Stubbs explains his base running error, and Rocky Colavito gets a birthday celebration. Oh, and if you listen to the podcast, as you all should be, you’d know that the issue of cloning in Major League Baseball is serious and needs to be investigated.
Cleveland Indians Links:
According to a report from Yahoo Sports, former Indians and current Mariners manager Eric Wedge missed the past three games and will most likely miss some more games in the near future to recover from a mild stroke. Wedge complained of dizziness before Monday’s game and after being rush to the hospital, tests concluded that the 45-year old manager suffered a mild stoke. Our thoughts go out to him and we all hope that he makes a speedy recovery.

A little over 18 years ago, this happened. It was probably one of the most memorable and exciting moments from that magical 1995 season. Watching this video still gives me goose bumps. Albert Belle was a beast. (Refresh page is video player isn’t loaded or follow this link)
