In 2004, Keith Foulke was on top of the world. He was closing games for a World Series winner and then the injuries came. Since then, he’s pitched pretty poorly. The Indians are hoping his arm troubles are behind him and he can bounce back because they’re close to a deal with the relief pitcher. Foulke would have a shot to close and you’d think any deal would have at least a few incentive driven stipulations. As always, we’ll see but the Indians have said a deal is very close.
The Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority recently approved a stadium plan that would bring the Indians back to Arizona for the 2009 spring training season. The facility will be in a west Phoenix suburb and it will replace their current winter home of Winter Haven, FL. The Indians played in Tuscon up until 1993 prior to moving their spring training to Winter Haven.
Hello, my name is Mel Downing and I’ll be covering the Indians for the Baseball Historians network. I grew up in Northwest Ohio and have been a life long Indians fan. I remember when they were really bad, and I remember when they were good and while 2006 was disappointment, I think 2007 will go a lot better.
I’ll not only be covering the present day Indians, but much like the theme of the other Baseball Historians sites, I’ll be taking a look at the teams past as well. This will includes season lookbacks that will start with the franchises inception in 1901 and I’ll also start a player retrospective on Nap Lajoie. And that will just kick things off. So I hope you stop by now and then and find something worth reading.
