Cleveland Payroll In 2013: Indians Organizational Rosters + Depth Charts – (MLB + MiLB)

Like us on Facebook here

Sunday, Apr.28/2013

The Indians were one of the top franchises for organizational Drafts, signing players, making trades and having their core players locked up to long term contract during the 1990's. In the early part of the millennium, they traded several of these players for a new core of players.  This time, their return wasn't as significant.  The club prides itself on not making big mistakes on the Free Agent market and developing its own talent.  For the first time in 2 decades, the management is really under scrutiny for team operations

By Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Analyst/Website Owner): and welcome Jeff Kleiner (Salary, Roster and Depth Chart Expert for the MLB) – visit his website  here  

You guys are all in for a treat.  Jeff Kleiner recently contacted me about a partnership merge for the website.  He has developed a site (prosportsrosters.com) that covers all organizational affiliates in the Minors for all of the Major League Baseball Clubs.  We are going to combine efforts to bring you the best look at salaries, current 25 Man Player Rosters and Depth Charts for all 30 teams. 

Jeff is going to provide the documents in form of spreadsheets and I am going to accompany the posts with deep analysis of what the numbers tell us from my perspective.  If you can’t wait for all of my assessments for each club, go and visit Jeff’s website over at http://www.prosportsrosters.com.

In Speaking with Jeff, he is one of the more passionate fans I have come across towards the game of baseball.  He spends enough time in updating his MLB Facts for it to be a Full-Time Job.  So after the usual Video Clip and READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY button, you will find some serious &*!@?!#!

Jeff updates this page below on a daily basis.  After you click on it….Bookmark it.  There is a 3 year salary forecast and stats not listed here on this page.  Jeff updates these pages daily and these changes include any Roster moves!

The 1st half of the Central Division winning Indians 2007

Cleveland made the World Series in 1995 and 1997, losing to both of the Atlanta Braves and Florida Marlins respectively.  They rode CC Sabathia, Cliff Lee, Travis Hafner and Grady Sizemore to a 3 - 1 ALCS lead over the Boston Red Sox - only to lose 3 straight.  it has been 5 years of mediocrity since.  Their last World Series Victory was in 1948.

Cleveland made the World Series in 1995 and 1997, losing to both of the Atlanta Braves and Florida Marlins respectively.

Their last World Series Victory was in 1948.

The Indians said goodbye to long term veterans Travis Hafner and Grady Sizemore this past winter.  These core players followed the likes of: CC Sabathia, Cliff Lee, Victor Martinez and several other players that were on the 2007 ALCS team that lost in 7 games to the Boston Red Sox.

The club spent a lot of money on Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn to fill the gap voided.  The team has several key young players that need to produce.

The Tribe have started 8 – 12 thus far in the 2013 campaign.  They have scored 87 Runs and yielded 95.  The Starting Pitching will be the key focus for the management to take care of now that the offense has been addressed. 

The Indians have done a great job of drafting over the last 20 years – and will continue to need their conversion rate to  be high – in order to compete with ‘pizza franchise baron’ Mike Illitch’s Detroit Tigers.

Jeff Kleiner:  “I have been a sports fan since the first Baseball game I went to at Comisky Park in Chicago in 1959, when baseball for me turned from black and white to color. I have attended or watched thousands of games, always paying attention to statistics, rosters and salaries of all professional sports.

Luckily I had the advantage of watching WGN TV and seeing hundreds of games in the 60’s. Collecting Baseball Cards and then later dealing them gave me an extra sense of the sport, both good and bad.” For all of your Salaries, Roster and Depth Charts for all 4 Major Sports (entire organization – Minors and Majors) click here or Follow Me on twitter

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
