MICHAEL BRANTLEY RUMORS

Michael Brantley Breaks Out – WFNY’s Top 10 Cleveland Sports Stories of 2014: No. 9

It feels a bit odd to classify Michael Brantley’s 2014 season as a “story”. Stories have ups and downs. Stories have adversity and resilience. Stories aren’t boringly consistent and, excepting Herman Mehlville, they don’t last for six months. There are a few ways to explain to you how maddeningly consistent Brantley was in 2014. On April 8th, about a week into the season...

Cleveland Indians rumors: solving the right field puzzle

After signing free agent right fielder David Murphy to a two-year contract last November, the Cleveland Indians were confident that they would have a solid platoon in right field with left-handed David Murphy on board and right-handed Ryan Raburn returning after earning a two-year contract extension last August.

Justin Brantley as Humble as Cousin is Smooth

Justin Brantley has every right to have an ego. The 23 year-old from Hudson, New York, is spending his first professional baseball season on a team that is about to make the play-offs. He boasts a 4-0 record, 1.36 ERA, and has two saves  in 23 relief appearances for the Lake County Captains this season. He has given up only six runs — all earned — and is holding opposing batters...

WATCH: Indians turn unconventional triple play

The Cleveland Indians turned one of the coolest and most unconventional triple plays you'll ever see in Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The triple play was so unique, it was challenged twice—first by the Indians, then by the Dodgers. At the end of the day, the Indians won the review, and the 7-2-4 triple play was officially in the books. Let's watch the magic...

Brantley is carrying on the family legacy on the mound

Baseball bloodlines have become an integral part of the game. The Alomars, the Ripkens, the Molinas. The Niekro knuckleball danced its way through generations. Ken Griffey Jr. once played alongside his father, solidifying one of baseball’s greatest father-son moments. Baseball seems to be a genetic trait, and the Brantley family is no different. Michael Brantley has taken the...

Sox ballgirl flashes glove on Brantley liner

It was already a foul ball, otherwise Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley would have felt robbed. Not a Boston Red Sox player but a ballgirl spectacularly snared a scorcher down the line off Brantley's bat during Thursday night's game. If there were a gold glove awarded for ballboys and ballgirls, this lady would have to be a top candidate. The Indians were stymied too...

The Evolution of Michael Brantley

As I have discussed in this space before, my estimation of Michael Brantley has not often aligned with those around me.  Where I saw a player failing to live up to his on-base pedigree, others saw someone with innate clutchiness.1   Where I saw a player who seemed to lose his base-stealing ability upon meeting better opponents, others saw a gritty gamer whose presence made the...
