Mudcats "Stars" shine bright in opening night 10-1 win
On a perfect night for the 2013 home opener, the Carolina Mudcats took the field against the Winston Salem Dash and exploded for ten runs in a 10-1 blowout win. Tyler Naquin just missed hitting for the cycle and right-hander Cody Anderson as well as shortstop Francisco Lindor all impress on opening night.

Why Trevor Bauer is the perfect fit in Cleveland
When the Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to include Trevor Bauer in a deal this offseason that sent him to the Cleveland Indians, many inside baseball thought that something had to have gone terribly wrong between the pitcher and his old team. No one may ever know the truth, but in Cleveland’s case, they are saying nothing but positive things about their top pitching prospect now.

Pitching coach manhunt
New Indians manager Terry Francona is still working through the interview process to finalize his coaching staff for the 2013 season. Other than Sandy Alomar Jr and Brad Mills, it is unknown as to what other coaches will be joining his staff. The most important decision Francona makes probably is who comes in to be the new pitching coach, and Adam McGavin chimes in with his thoughts on that and lists several potential candidates that Francona may be considering for the job.

Second Thoughts: Game #162 White Sox 9, Indians 0
Well, it's over. The Indians finished up one of the most disappointing seasons they have had in a very long time, and Wednesday night's game was a microcosm of the entire season: inconsistent starting pitching, poor hitting, and shaky defense. Adam McGavin gives his thoughts on the game one last time this season...

Second Thoughts: Game #160 White Sox 11, Indians 0
What started as a pitcher’s duel gave way to an eleven-run thumping from the White Sox last night as the Indians were shut out 11-0. There were no runs scored through five, but Corey Kluber unraveled and the Tribe ‘pen didn’t have any answers....and the recently hot Indians offense could do little against starter Hector Santiago and the Sox relief corps. Adam McGavin shares his thoughts on the game.

Second Thoughts: Game #156 Indians 6, White Sox 4
The Indians won their final road game of the season by beating the White Sox 6-4 on Wednesday night, largely thanks to a strong showing from the bullpen. By taking the rubber game of their series against Chicago, the Indians bumped the Sox out of 1st place in the division. Adam McGavin chimes in with his second thoughts on the game.

Second Thoughts: Game #154 - Indians 4, White Sox 5
The Indians fought admirably on Monday night, but Vinnie Pestano had a rare stumble and a two-out, 9th inning rally came up just short as the Indians fell to the White Sox 5-4. Zach McAllister pitched very well and the Indians hung in there against Chris Sale, but two Adam Dunn homers did them in. Adam McGavin shares his thoughts on the game.

Second Thoughts: Game #150 Twins 3, Indians 4
The Indians were able to salvage the final game of their series with the Twins on Thursday afternoon winning in walkoff fashion in the 10th inning thanks to a Casey Kotchman RBI single. Corey Kluber turned in another solid starting effort, and the bullpen was dominant once again. Jason Ruggiero recaps a much needed Tribe win.

Second Thoughts: Game #149 Twins 6, Indians 4
The Indians officially moved into last place in the AL Central with their 6-4 loss to the Twins on Wednesday night, and now have the worst record in the American League. Once again the Indians did not get a good outing from their starting pitcher and the offense was completely absent for most of the game. It all added up to another Tribe loss and they are amazingly just 17-48 in their last 65 games. Adam McGavin recaps another loss...

Everyone knows that the Indians biggest strength lies in their bullpen, and he takes a look at some of the good arms the Indians have stockpiled there as well as some good young players at other positions.
