Second Thoughts: Game #106 Tigers 10, Indians 2
And the losing streak continues. After being swept by the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals this past week, the Indians dropped their seventh game in a row to Detroit on Friday night, 10-2. It marked just the third time the team was defeated by the Tigers in 10 games this season.

Second Thoughts: Game #100 Twins 11, Indians 0
Coming into the game having just beaten the American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner in Justin Verlander, the Indians made Twins left-hander Scott Diamond look like a Cy Young candidate himself, getting embarrassed and losing to Minnesota 11-0 on last night. Jim Berdysz does his best to sift through the carnage in today's Second Thoughts.

Second Thoughts: Game #95-Orioles 4, Indians 3
The Indians are in a free fall, and at the wrong time. The Indians lost to the Baltimore Orioles last nigh, their fourth in a row, and fell under .500 for the first time since April. The Indians rallied in the ninth, behind 4-0, but fell a run short, losing to the Orioles, 4-3. Is this the end, with the Tigers playing so well? Jim Berdysz asks "What if," after the jump...

Second Thoughts: Game #87-Blue Jays 11, Indians 9
Toronto sent 13 men to the plate against Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez in the third inning, and scored eight runs on eight hits. Cleveland would make a late comeback in the ballgame after being down 10-2 by the top of the fourth, but it was too little too late as the Jays would still cruise to a 11-9 victory. Join Jim B with his Second Thoughts on Saturday night's ballgame...

Second Thoughts: Game #86-Indians 1, Blue Jays 0
Justin Masterson entered the second half of 2012 with perhaps a chip on his shoulder. While much of his season has resembled his much heralded break-out season in 2011, he's had moments of struggle where his velocity was down, and his control was erratic. That wasn't the case on Friday Night, as Masterson dominated. Jim Berdysz shares his "Second Thoughts," after the jump.

Second Thoughts: Game #84-Indians 7, Rays 3
Cleveland entered the game struggling against left-handed pitching, and facing one of the best young left-handed pitchers in the American League in Tampa Bay's Matt Moore. Cleveland unleashed a doubles barrage on Moore early and often, plating five runs in the second and third innings, then watched Ubaldo Jimenez lock down Tampa for the 7-3 victory. Jim Bierdysz rolls out his 'Second Thoughts' on the game-time action.

Second Thoughts: Game #83-Rays 10, Indians 3
The Indians entered Friday Night's contest coming off a big opening series win and with their staff ace on the mound. The Tampa Bay Rays were struggling, and everything seemed pointed towards another victory. Of course, that's why they play the games. The Rays, given a big advantage by Masterson's lack of command, dominated the contest from the start. Check out Jim B's "Second Thoughts" on Friday Night's game action.

Second Thoughts: Game #77-Indians 11, Orioles 5
Lou Marson nearly hit for the cycle. Please read that again, and take it in slowly. Even with the potential Marson cycle, he wasn't the best offensive player on the roster yesterday. Marson, Shin-Soo Choo and Jose Lopez went a combined 13-for-16, and the Indians offense had an insane 19 hits in scoring 11 total runs. With the big win over the Orioles, the Indians inched to 2 1/2 games out of first place. Join Jim Berdysz with his second thoughts on the Tribe's offense onslaught...

Second Thoughts: Game #76-Orioles 9, Indians 8
The Indians have now lost six of seven games, and have falled 3 1/2 games behind the first place Chicago White Sox. With Lonnie Chisenhall heading to the DL, Michael Brantley hitting cleanup and Chris Antonetti talking about "improvement...from the interior," it may be time to start circling the wagons. Join Jim B. for some Second Thoughts on last night's ballgame.

Second Thoughts: Game #70-Astros 8, Indians 1
After the Indians shutout Houston 2-0 on Friday night, the Astros returned the favor on Saturday afternoon as rookie left-handed starter Dallas Keuchel threw a complete game victory in just his second Major League start, defeating Cleveland 8-1. Tribe starter Jeanmar Gomez would take a perfect game into the fifth inning only to unravel and give up four runs in the frame, on his way to his third consecutive losing effort and seventh loss of the season.

Second Thoughts: Game #69 - Indians 2, Astros 0
The Indians got their 10-game road trip started off on the right foot on Friday night with a 2-0 win over the Astros. Ubaldo Jimenez continued his June brilliance and the offense did just enough to aide in the win. Jim Berdysz chimes in with his "second thoughts" on the win and the Indians fourth straight win...

Second Thoughts: Game #64-Pirates 9, Indians 2
It was nowhere close to the kind of game Indians manager Manny Acta and his players were envisioning on Saturday, as the Pirates tied the three game series with a an easy 9-2 victory. After gaining some momentum shutting out Pittsburgh on Friday, Cleveland never looked as though they ever had control in the ballgame as the Indians offense woes continue. The Indians are now just 12-15 over their last 27 games. Join Jim B. for his Second Thoughts on Saturday's game against the Pirates...

Second Thoughts: Game #63-Indians 2, Pirates 0
Justin Masterson is the staff ace, and his finally starting to look like it. Masterson dominated for seven, then gave the game to Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez. Two words for the resurgent Pittsburgh Pirates: GAME OVER. Michael Brantley also continues his MLB high hit streak to 22 games. Join Jim Berdysz for his "Second Thoughts" on Friday Night's masterpiece.

Second Thoughts: Game #58-Cardinals 2, Indians 0
The Indians offense was stymied by one Kyle Lohse, a right-handed starter formerly with the Minnesota Twins who never really had any luck with the Indians over the years. That all changed on Saturday night, as the Indians were shutout for the first time in 2012. Carlos Beltran, who was pursued by the Indians this offseason, had three hits, including his 17th homer, as the Cardinals won 2-0. Jim Berdysz gives his Second Thoughts about game 58, after the jump...
