Second Thoughts Game #161: Indians 5, Twins 1
They started from the bottom now they’re here! The hottest team in all of baseball was at it again Saturday afternoon in Minneapolis, as the Tribe took down the Twins 5-1 to win their ninth straight. With the victory, Cleveland now sits in the driver’s seat up one game in the American League wild card race where they control their own destiny. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts on the big Tribe win...

A one and done playoff, the Indians have been here before
Right now as we prepare for this year's wild card one-and-done games or even one-and-done tiebreaker play in games, it's interesting to note that the Indians are not foreigners to this experience (while most of us may not remember). IBI history guru Rick Lamborn takes us down memory lane to 1948, the last year the Indians won a World Series, and recalls how the Indians had to go to Fenway for a one game playoff to determine the AL pennant and get into the playoffs.

Second Thoughts Game #160: Indians 12, Twins 6
While a team’s number of wins doesn’t necessarily dictate how they’ll fare in the playoffs, it still is a symbol of success, particularly to a ball club that doesn’t see the luxury of 90-plus wins very often. For the Indians, it’s a milestone as they now have reached the 90-win mark for the first time since their last playoff run in 2007. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps the Tribe's 12-6 blowout win over the Twins.

Orbiting Cleveland: A 2007 vs. 2013 comparison part 2
There are just three days left in the regular season, which essentially means the Indians could be a mere three days away from advancing to the postseason for the first time since the 2007 season. The 2007 team was a great team but ultimately fell short of achieving its goal of winning a World Series. Could this year's team fare better? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he continues to compare this year's team to the 2007 one in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts Game #159: Indians 6, Twins 5
This team is a collection of castoffs and a collection of misfits which has provided a scrapbook full of moments. No player, no person has been indispensable, they have all been indispensable. That once again proved to be the case on Thursday night as several different players contributed on offense and several pitchers combined to shut the Twins down (before Chris Perez came in) to notch win #89 for the Indians. The IBI's Michael Hattery shares his second thoughts...

With the win, the Indians maintain their position in the American League wild-card race. Texas stayed within a game of Cleveland after a walkoff home run by Jurickson Profar.

Where the aces are
The IBI's Jeff Ellis has often wondered where the top starting pitchers in baseball come from. Do they come from the draft or internationally? Do they come from college or high school? Is there any rhyme or reason to it all or is there really no such thing as a starting pitching prospect (TINSTAAPP)? He came up with some data which he believes helps answer that question and why the Indians may be a prime position for the 2014 Draft.
