Second Thoughts Game #12: Indians 12, White Sox 6
For the Cleveland Indians and the fandom that follows them, Saturday's 12-6 victory was an oasis in what has been an offensive desert of a start. The team's offense finally broke out of a week long slump and piled up 12 runs on 12 hits, though the starting pitching continues to be inconsistent. The IBI's John Grimm looks at the rotation's performance to date and offers up some evidence that things may not be as bad as they seem....

Ryan Rohlinger and Jerrud Sabourin were perfect at the plate on the night, and Dorssys Paulino and Paul Hendrix had big nights at the plate. The IBI's Arthur Kinney takes us Around the Farm......

Second Thoughts Game #11: White Sox 9, Indians 6
As tempting as it is to indulge in the frenzy of panic that tends to emerge after losses - or steep oneself in the intoxicating thrill of victory - it's frequently more useful to try to find the good in losses and the bad in wins. In this vein, John Grimm gives his Second Thoughts on Friday night's loss to the White Sox, looking at the early struggles of Carlos Carrasco, Asdrubal Cabrera's clutchness, and more.

2014 IBI Positional Rankings: The Left-handed Relievers
Today we move on to the left-handed relief pitchers in our annual IBI positional rankings. Like with the right-handed relievers, this is a tough position to rank because lefty relievers can be scarce in a farm system for a variety of reasons. At the moment the Indians have a solid one-two punch in Cleveland in Marc Rzepczynski and Josh Outman and have them backed up with Nick Hagadone in Columbus, but they have some legitimate prospect depth behind them to fill a need if any of the above trio get hurt, under perform, or leave the team in free agency or trade. The IBI's Tony Lastoria ranks the options and provides scouting reports and insight on names like Crockett, Barnes, Polanco, Soto, Pannone and Araujo.

Second Thoughts Game #10: Indians 3, White Sox 7
All good things must come to an end and such was the case for the Indians' 14-game win streak against the White Sox. Of course, with no Jason Giambi to summon from the bench, the task was somewhat tougher. Despite Danny Salazar making history, it was pretty much the Jose Abreu show on Thursday as he clubbed a pair of home runs. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps Thursday's 7-3 loss.
