Swinging for the Fences: Looking at the lefties
Many Cleveland faithful would prefer to forget the name Rich Hill sooner rather than later. However, as tough as he was to watch on the mound at times this season, he was only a symptom of an ongoing issue for the Indians in 2013. After the departures of left-handed relief mainstays Tony Sipp and Rafael Perez, the process of bringing in and testing new southpaw recruits proved to be more difficult than the team probably had envisioned. The IBI's Jake Dungan looks at the lefty options for the Tribe in 2014

Swinging for the Fences: Is Justin Masterson an ace?
The question many have asked the past couple seasons has been is Justin Masterson an ace? After his breakout season in 2011, the Indians thought he could be, but 2012 saw him regress significantly. Now after the 2013 season, Masterson has reestablished his effectiveness as a top-of-the-rotation starter, but is he a legitimate ace? The IBI's Jake Dungan speculates in this week's Swinging for the Fences

Swinging for the Fences: Bryan Shaw – The next Tribe closer?

Swinging for the Fences: The case for bringing back Giambi
Veteran DH Jason Giambi has expressed a desire to play next year and return to the Indians. As he’ll be blowing out 43 candles on his birthday cake next season and not surprisingly is no longer putting up the same MVP-type numbers he did in his storied career, let alone even playing on a regular basis, why should Chris Antonetti re-up his deal for 2014? The IBI's Jake Dungan explains in his new weekly feature Swinging for the Fences.

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.

Second Thoughts Game #154: Astros 1, Indians 2
Earned runs, unearned runs, walks, hits, errors, extra innings, rain. In the end, it doesn’t matter how you win since they’re all chalked up the same in the win column. On Friday night, the Indians took game two of the four-game set against the lowly Astros 2-1 in a rain-shortened six and a half innings of play.

Second Thoughts Game #147: Indians 3, White Sox 1
In pretty much a polar opposite game of Thursday night’s slug fest by the Indians, it came down to Danny Salazar and the bullpen holding off Chicago to walk away with a narrow 3-1 victory to continue to put pressure on the wild card race as four teams, including the Tribe continue to challenge the Rays for that second wild card spot. The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his thoughts on the Indians' 10th straight win over Chicago.
