Second Thoughts Game #102: Rangers 8, Indians 11
Since day one, the Indians have been blessed with a luxury they have not enjoyed for quite some time in their bench. Meanwhile, a former strength in their bullpen continues to struggle with Joe Smith currently leading the charge. It was all a moot point on Friday night as Ryan Raburn walked off the Tribe in extra innings with a three run blast. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he gives his second thoughts on another Indians walk-off win.

Second Thoughts Game #100: Indians 3, Mariners 4
The long-anticipated return of Zach McAllister to the Indians rotation is finally here and while his first start wasn’t all that great, we’ll still take it considering the circumstances. The right-hander pitched five innings allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and had to work around miscues by his defense as well as his own rustiness. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps another frustrating loss for the Tribe

Notes from the Wigwam: Time to step up
It wasn’t exactly how the Indians wanted to start the second half, but despite losing two out of three in Minnesota, Cleveland didn’t lose any ground in the division race since the Tigers had a similar outcome in Kansas City. In addition to plugging some holes via trade, the Indians need some of the guys they already have to start stepping up. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps this week with the Indians.

Second Thoughts Game #96: Indians 2, Twins 3
If anyone has had more tough luck in the Indians rotation this season, it has to be lefty Scott Kazmir. As strong and inspiring as his comeback to the major leagues has been, he’s also had his share of misfortune on the mound. Friday night was no different as Kazmir pitched shutout baseball, but botched plays in the field led to the game-tying runs scoring. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he gives his 'Second Thoughts' on a frustrating loss.

Second Thoughts: Where the rotation stands
It’s the All-Star break in 2013 and once again, the Indians find themselves within striking distance of the division lead. There have been many keys that have led to their strong showing in the first half. However, one element that deserved a good deal of the credit is the starting pitching staff, one that originally had a lot of ‘maybes’ and ‘what-ifs’. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he breaks down the rotation at the halfway point.

Second Thoughts Game #93: Royals 0, Indians 3
You have to give this young man credit. Here we are nearing the All-Star Break and not only has Corey Kluber filled a role vacated by the long-injured Brett Myers, he has taken tremendous strides practically out of nowhere to become a reliable and even at times dominant major league starter. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps another gem tossed by the right-hander.

Call to the Bullpen: Episode 1.13
Welcome to the first of several installments of a special "Trade Talk" edition of Call to the Bullpen! The All-Star Break is coming up, which means the MLB trade market will soon be crazy busy. The Indians have shown no indication that they will sell or be dormant this trade season. In fact, the Tribe has been fervent in a search for a top of the rotation starter and Jake and Hayden are here to discuss all the latest rumors.

Second Thoughts Game #90: Blue Jays 0, Indians 3
Whether you like him or not, Ubaldo Jimenez has been a solid contributor to the Indians rotation this season. While we can all probably agree he’s far from being the Cy Young-contending ace he once was, he has been at least serviceable at the very minimum. Then again, being 7-4 with a 4.37 ERA is a tad better than serviceable. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps Ubaldo's dominant start and the Tribe's shutout victory over the Jays.

Second Thoughts Game #86: Tigers 7, Indians 0
After pitching a complete-game shutout against the White Sox last weekend, Justin Masterson couldn’t make it out of the fifth inning before giving up six of the Tigers’ seven runs of the night. it was not the way the Indians wanted to start this four-game set, but it’s still only one game. However, it doesn’t get any easier from here on out. The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his second thoughts on Friday's disappointing loss to the Tigers.

So how has the the bench contributed to the Tribe's success this season?

Second Thoughts Game #83: Indians 6, Royals 5
If you look at Jason Giambi and immediately point out that he’s barely hitting at the Mendoza line, you don’t understand the value he has to this Indians team. While it’s true he doesn’t get nearly as many hits as he used to, the hits he does get are more often than not key and clutch. He proved that once again on Tuesday night driving in the game-winning run with a double. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he gives his "Second Thoughts" on the Tribe's veteran DH and more in their 6-5 win over Kansas City.

Second Thoughts Games #79-80: Tribe wins two
We’ve probably said this before when the Indians have had good first halves of the season the last couple years, but this time, it’s legitimate. There is something special about this Cleveland Indians team. They won’t win every game, but they will battle you tooth and nail until the last pitch is thrown. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he gives you a double-dose of Second Thoughts about the Indians' thrilling twin-bill sweep of the White Sox.

Call to the Bullpen: Episode 1.11
Call to the Bullpen has moved to a new show time! Tune in tonight and from now on on Wednesday nights at 10:00 pm ET. Don't look now, but the Indians have won four straight series and are still in second place within striking distance of the Tigers. Now a long, hard road trip will test them and see if they can stay afloat despite their recent struggles away from Progressive Field. The bullpen will play a huge role in whatever success they have. However, they've recently become somewhat unreliable for the Tribe due to injuries and inconsistency. Can they get back on track and go back to being the dominant force they've been in the past? Jake and Hayden discuss all that and more tonight!

Second Thoughts Game #76: Indians 3, Orioles 6
Indians ace Justin Masterson had a perfect game through four innings. Slider, sinker, everything was virtually unhittable. He was touched up for a run in the fifth, but through six innings he looked masterful. Then everything fell apart in the seventh as in a blink of an eye the game was tied and in another blink the Indians were losing by three. The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his second thoughts on the tough defeat...

Second Thoughts Game #72: Twins 1, Indians 5
Some were starting to question the future of Scott Kazmir as a starter for the Indians after his last start against Washington, when he served up five runs, four hits and three home runs in just two and two-thirds innings of work. Whether it was the rain, a mechanical issue or just another example of the inconsistency that the left-hander has dealt with so far this season, he had nothing working for him that night.

Second Thoughts Game #70: Royals 3, Indians 4
At times, it felt like the Indians were doing everything in their power to giftwrap a win for Kansas City on Tuesday night thanks to wild pitches, errors and a wild ninth inning. The Indians came away with a 4-3 win, a much needed win and one that was not easy for the hometown boys. The IBI's Jake Dungan shares his second thoughts on the game...
