Cleveland Indians' Francisco Lindor will always bat for the home team in Puerto Rico

Francisco Lindor's teammates on the Indians almost enjoyed his homecoming home run on Tuesday night as much as he did.

The Twins did not complain about Francisco Lindor’s home run celebration

Lindor apologized to the Twins for his behavior, but he really didn’t have to. During the 5th inning of last night’s Twins vs. Cleveland Indians game in Puerto Rico, Francisco Lindor broke up a 0-0 tie game with a two-run home run off Twins starter Jake Odorizzi. It was a huge moment for the native Puerto Rican, who was beaming ear-to-ear and waving to the crowd as he rounded the bases. This. Is. Awesome. #PuertoRicoSeries pic.twitter.com/Ad5J8nCmT1— MLB (@MLB) April 18, 2018 Obviously it was a huge moment for baseball and Puerto Rico, and one Lindor is surely never to forget. As...

Indians 6, Twins 1: Shoulda stayed in the snow

Indians 6, Twins 1: Shoulda stayed in the snow

Giving up a bunch of dingers is rarely good. The Twins hadn’t played a game in, says here, 48 days due to snow; so they were a bit rusty coming into this game in Puerto Rico against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber. According to the broadcasters of Fox Sports 1 he’s the top super ultra pitcher and Francisco Lindor was going to hit 8 homeruns so the Twins stood zero chance. Turns out they were kinda right! Jake Odorizzi started strong, but the dreaded three-times-through-the-order debuff he acquired in the 5th made him give up a 2 run jack to Puerto Rico’s own Francisco Lindor. Oh, and then...

Indians 9, Tigers 3: Swept out of Cleveland

Indians 9, Tigers 3: Swept out of Cleveland

Cleveland just isn’t safe for the Tigers these days. The Tigers rode a broomstick out of Chicago to Cleveland last Sunday night. On Thursday, they were swept out of town with it. Michael Fulmer and the Tigers’ defense were a complete mess, and they spent three hours in the headlights of an 18-wheeler with a Chief Wahoo logo painted on the front as it bore down on them, losing 9-3 as the Indians took four in a row. Michael Fulmer just didn’t have it tonight. Much like Verlander before him, the Indians seem to hit the Tigers’ best starters better than anyone. A Francisco Lindor solo...

Aaron Judge’s forgotten defensive ability

Aaron Judge’s forgotten defensive ability

The home runs are obviously notable, but his defense is still a big part of his game. During last year’s postseason, Aaron Judge revealed a skill we hadn’t seen from him yet, a season where he set the rookie single season home run record no less. He could steal home runs. Because of his height, especially somewhere like Yankee Stadium with a short porch in right field, Judge has the ability to merely pluck the ball from over the shallow part of the park. We saw that on display against Francisco Lindor in the ALDS, and that time he pulled the ball right out of the hands of Zack...
