On Sunday, August 13, 2006, your Cleveland Indians defeated the Kansas City Royals 13-0. The game was pretty much over after the first inning, where the Indians held the Royals scoreless and managed to drive in 11 runs themselves.

Travis Hafner hit his 6th Grand Slam of the SEASON! This ties a major league record (currently held by Don Mattingly) for most grand slams in a single season. By my count, the Tribe still have 45 games left, so hopefully Hafner can break the record!

Jeremy Sowers pitched 6 solid, shutout innings. He kept the Royals scoreless and picked up the victory.

Franklin Gutierrez hit his first major league homerun. It went into the bleacher seats.

Ryan Garko also hit a homerun into the bleacher seats.

This victory puts the Cleveland Indians on a 6 game winning streak – the last 4 of those wins have been in this series against the Royals.

Answer by Chipmaker
The 1931 Indians went 0-12 from 07-May through 21-May.

Lost one to the Browns in St. Louis.
Lost three at home to Boston (4).
Two more at home to Washington (6).
Four at home to the Philadelphia Athletics (10).
Two at home to the Yankees (12).
Finally won, beating the White Sox, 10-5.

Then dropped a doubleheader to Chicago.

Then tore off a ten-game win streak.

Baseball, she is a funny game. I love her so.

Question by iHeckler: Will the Cleveland Indians charge extra for obstructed view seats this year?
The Cleveland Indians have no real hope at all of losing less that 90 games and that is being generous…… Will fans be charged extra for obstructed view seats?

Now, if you shift your head slightly to the right or left you may be able to catch a glimpse of the action on the field, so we recommend you stare straight ahead in order to get your money’s worth!

BQ (for the YA legal dept) – Where do the Indians finish in the AL Central?


Answer by nas88car 300#11wins then surgery
im not sure but i heard they could be paying the fans to attend if they are real bad
they will bring up the worst record in the MAJOR leagues

Answer by Masternachos
I’d say fourth, but only a game or two ahead of the Royals.

Answer by Jenn Brewers ∂ Packers Girl
Those are the best seats to have, then you don’t have to see them lose.

BQ: I’ve tossed this around with the Royals, but I’m thinking they will actually come out ahead of them. It’s nearly impossible to predict which will be last in the division.

    I know. Where do they think they play anyway? Tiger Stadium?

    BQ: 4th. Tigers and Twins battle for the Central crown, White Sox finish just below them.

  2. Fozzy says:

    Yes they will.
    They also have another plan for their better off fans.
    For three times the price you don’t even have to go to the game.

    My guess is dead last, but not too far behind the Royals.
    And given that the AL Central seems to be made up of nothing but inctredibly mediocre teams, they still may only be about 6 games out of first as well.

  3. WOLFMOTHER1257 says:

  11. KnightsFootball46 says:

    @GuruSY lol, I’m a pittsburgher and the Pirate’s on air television announcers spend like 10% of the game actually talking about it, and then the rest is just them bullshitting haha. They talk about hotel prices, bands, they’re grandchildren, they don’t give a shit anymore lol.

  12. Elcuhcuy says:


  13. enwll3427 says:

    @FutureNewsAnchor Indians suck because of Drennan ripping them.Boy are you stupid.At least they don’t spend more than some teams w/ just the salary of a couple of players then miss the playoffs like in ’08.Screw the Yankmees.

  14. GuruSY says:

    Thank God for his health he doesn’t do this for the Pirates.

  15. skinnymoo says:

    Bruce you are a master.
    Considering that you work for STO which broadcasts most of the tribe games, you let it fly. Kudos to you my friend.
    Love the Brayon swing. Priceless!!!

    Hey Dolan’s, crawl out from under that rock and sell the team to someone that wants to bring a winner to Cleveland.

  16. DevilInPgh says:

  21. livingisaight says:
