Published in Sam and Brad
Make that 21 wins in a row for the Cleveland Indians, an American League record for consecutive victories. This is a feat that has not happened in nearly a century, and it takes a team effort.

Tom Hamilton, the voice of the Tribe, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about what he has seen from the broadcast booth. Hamilton believes the Indians turned their season around in the month of August, when they had to face a number of above.-500 teams, which he says was a separator. He points to the two starts against Chris Sale where the offense “manhandled” the Cy Young hopeful.

Going forward, the Indians’ voice talked about what to expect when Jason Kipnis and Andrew Miller are healthy, as well as if fans will see Michael Brantley again this season.

Tito sat down with Ray Horner during Wahoo Week in Goodyear, Arizona, to not only talk about the current team, but also a little about him. Many years ago, Francona played with the Montreal Expos, and an injury to his knee paved the way for Tim “Rock” Raines to have a hall-of-fame career.

These ain’t your father’s Cleveland Indians anymore.

After making it to Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, the Indians have upped the ante and signed slugger Edwin Encarnacion to a three-year deal. Tribe broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus talked about this signing with the Ray Horner Morning Show, believing a deal like this “makes sense.”

"There’s a need to go for it, and this certainly gives them that extra boost to take that next step,” said Rosenhaus. The former Blue Jay slugger will most likely play DH, with Carlos Santana moving over to first base full-time. Rosenhaus also talked about his consistency, with Encarnacion having the second-most home runs in the last five seasons.

Will a signing of this magnitude help the attendance? Rosenhaus believes so, not just from the Encarnacion addition, but the long playoff run. He feels the organization senses the momentum will continue, and may see another bump in season ticket sales during the offseason.
