There's a playoff BUZZ at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The City of Cleveland is in the midst of a Indians' summer, and there's an all to familiar buzz surrounding the North Coast that's been absent for the past six years. The Indians are facing off against a fellow small market team tonight at 8:00 at Progressive Field, and many feel that the Indians are in over their head. Join Jim Pete as he talks about the history of Cleveland's October buzz, reminisces about Terry Francona's first press conference buzz on October 8 of last year, and looks at where this buzz may be going this year and beyond.

IBI Power Poll: What should the Indians do with Chris Perez?
The Cleveland Indians will play past the final day of the regular season.

While that seemed to answer the Perez questions in close games, what does that mean for Perez and the Indians in the immediate future? Join Jim Pete with this week's IBI Power Poll.

A tale of two moments at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
In one five minute span of baseball, the Cleveland Indians went from the high of being three outs away from winning their fifth game in a row, to giving up a ninth inning lead and watching the Astros fall behind the Rangers. Another Cleveland implosion. Then something funny happened. Jason Giambi stepped up to the plate and launched the biggest home run at Progressive Field in recent memory...and the Indians won. Join Jim Pete as he looks at the two players that put the entire town in their own personal roller coaster.

Finding balance at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians aren't glitz, and they certainly aren't glamor. This team is built around a group of players that are even-keeled, even-tempered and share similar skills and abilities. This week, Jim Pete talks about how this team is the epitome of that term, and how their win in game two showcased just how this team can look very, very good, and very very bad, all at the same time. Is it good enough to make the playoffs? Find out in this week's Corner of Carnegie and Ontario...

Cleveland Sports Insider 2:21: The Indians are charging edition
The Cleveland Browns have put up 16 points on the season. For those counting at home, that surely isn't a lot. While some of that can be attributed to Josh Gordon's suspension, much of that has to do with just a bad offense.Michael Hattery and Jim Pete will talk Browns football, but also dive into the Indians once again climbing from the ashes by dominating the hapless Chicago White Sox. Join Jim and Mike for your weekly dose of Cleveland Sports Talk, at 9:00!!!

A Royal Pain at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Indians may be running into a buzz saw in the form of the Kansas City Royals, who has a nice mix of solid starting pitching, a trending offense and a tough-as-nails bullpen. While many Tribe fans point to the Indians potentially catching playoff lightning in a bottle, it's the Royals who seem to be coming together at the right time. All is not lost though, as the eternal optimist, Jim Pete, takes a look through Royal blue sunglasses from his perch at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

Was the season a successful one? It depends on what your definition is for success? If you're an Indians fan looking for a bank of players, Carolina was the place to be. Join Jim Pete for one last fishing expedition for the 2013 season.
