There isn’t much going on with the Cleveland Indians over the next month, but there are some important dates to take note of in November.
This is a slow time of year for Cleveland Indians fans.
Those watching the World Series still have some baseball to keep track of, but those who find it too painful to watch are searching for any Indians-related news.
I am in the latter group.
While looking through some different MLB news, I came across a list of some award-related dates of note. With November set to be another slow month, offseason awards will dominate the news.
Here are some of the notable dates:
- November 4: Gold Glove winners announced
- November 8: Silver Slugger winners announced
- November 14: Cy Young winners announced
- November 15: MVP winners announced
At the time of this article being written, the Indians have several players up for Gold Gloves. We will have an update on that later on once all the nominees are announced.
The Indians should also have some players up for Silver Sluggers and it is possible Corey Kluber slides in as a Cy Young finalist. The same could be true for Jose Ramirez and the MVP Award, but I don’t see any scenario in which either player wins either award.
These awards don’t do much for fans but they do show that hard work is recognized, even if it comes during the regular season and not the postseason. It can also allow players to earn more money, which is nice for them.
We aren’t talking championships and we aren’t even looking ahead to more baseball. But when the weather is cold and the Browns and the Cavs are struggling, it is nice to have some baseball-related news to get us to December. That’s when the free agency fun finally begins.
