Counting on Carrasco

Today continues DTTWLN’s three week examination of the Indians’ 2014 season and where it fell short of the playoff expectations established last winter. The staff will examine where the season went wrong and the challenges the front office faces to make the Indians contenders in 2015. Just when it seemed to finally be simple with Carlos Carrasco, it becomes complicated all over...

Second Thoughts Game #161: Tampa Bay 2, Cleveland 0

Carlos Carrasco’s Saturday performance was, if not wholly and faithfully representative, at least emotionally representative of the Indians’ season to date. On one hand, Carrasco threw a gem, an eight-inning, ten-strikeout, three-walk performance that resulted in two earned runs. On the other hand, it coincided with a Rays’ shutout of the Indians and hence a pitcher loss for...

Carrasco, Indians still have plenty to play for

Although he faltered in the rotation early in the season, Carlos Carrasco has been one of MLB's best starters since the Cleveland Indians gave him a second chance. A night after the Indians were eliminated from the playoff race, Carrasco looks to limit an opponent to one run or less for the eighth time in 10 starts Saturday against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. Carrasco was moved...

The Incredible Transformation of Carlos Carrasco

While Corey Kluber has grabbed most of the accolades for the Indians starting rotation this season, there has been another pitcher who has been even better than the Indians ace. Since rejoining the starting rotation on August 10th, Carrasco has posted a 5-2 record with an ERA of 1.32, a .183 BAA and 68 strike outs in 61.1 innings. Comparatively over his last eight starts, Kluber...

Fantasy Roundup: Carlos Carrasco

In mid-April I said Carlos Carrasco would not last as a starting pitcher because he was unable to get hitters out a second and third time through the order. He’s always had exceptional stuff and before the season I thought he should have been the Indians closer. In his last seven starts (not including last night’s dominant shutout against the Astros) he has a 1.40 ERA, 0.84 WHIP...

Carrasco Cruises Through Pale Hose with Four-Hit Gem; Indians 2, White Sox 0

Whatever changes Carlos Carrasco made before returning to the starting rotation, they sure have worked. Carrasco pitched nothing short of a gem on Sunday afternoon, shutting out the Chicago White Sox for eight and two third innings and leading the Indians to a 2-0 victory at Progressive Field. While it has been said before, this game is Carrasco’s best since returning to the rotation...

Remain Cautious(ly Optimistic) with Carrasco in Rotation

The Cleveland Indians have been starting a pitcher in their rotation that looks like Carlos Carrasco the last two times through the rotation. Physically, he looks like the pitcher the Indians traded for in July 2008 and promoted to their big league roster as early as September 2009, but once the ball leaves his hand, it hasn’t looked much like the previous parts of the last five...

Second Thoughts: The Dark Cloud Over Carlos Carrasco

After taking a line drive off his elbow in a start last night for Columbus, Carlos Carrasco appears to have established a rather morbid method for evading the suspensions Major League Baseball tries to impose upon him. At press time, the extent of Carrasco’s latest injury remained unknown, but if initial reports are any indication, another prolonged stint on the disabled list...

Video: Carlos Carrasco ejected after hitting Kevin Youkilis

As Matt Dery pointed out on Twitter, the most interesting thing about this video is Rick Manning not falling for Carrasco’s fake tripping routine and nearly admonishing him for doing what got him suspended last time. “He didn’t fall down. That was intentional,” Manning said. See it for yourself. In the end, the umpire might have done him a favor as Carrasco gave up 7 runs...
