Nick Maronde looking for a fresh start with the Tribe
Nick Maronde became the latest player to trade his halo for a block "C" or vice-versa this season as the Indians and Angels have now had multiple personnel change squads this year, including Joe Smith, Vinnie Pestano and, most recently, J.B. Schuck. After appearing in two College World Series and playing with some of the game's best in LA, the left-hander is ready for the next chapter in his career, as the IBI's Jake Dungan writes.

Second Thoughts Game #139: White Sox 1, Indians 2
After Thursday's defeat in extra innings, Cleveland returned to extra innings on Friday to defeat Chicago 2-1 in 10 and start the weekend series with a victory. Central to this victory was Yan Gomes, who has followed up a breakout 2013 and contract extension with continued excellence. The IBI's John Grimm breaks down Indians' catchers framing metric and considers one play in very particular depth.

Murphy's walk-off hit sends Indians over Chicago, 2-1
When it comes to walk-off wins, nobody in the American League does it better than the Indians. Activated off the disabled list just hours before first pitch Friday, outfielder David Murphy couldn't have had a better first at-bat back. Deadlocked with Chicago in a 1-1 tie in the 10th, Murphy notched a pinch-hit game winning single to center off reliever Maikel Cleto, edging the Tribe over the ChiSox, 2-1 in the series opener.

Detroit erupts for seven runs in extras, sending Tribe to 11-4 defeat
For the second straight night, the Indians blanked Detroit through nine innings of play Thursday. There's just one problem. The game went 11 innings, and two of the innings combined to result in 11 runs for the surging Tigers.

Second Thoughts Game #137: Tigers 0, Indians 7
It would have been a disaster if the Indians were swept in this series. They would have been behind as much as seven games in the Wild Card race, which would have put the playoffs almost entirely out of reach. Winning at least one game was an absolute necessity, and now the Indians have done just that thanks to the arm of Danny Salazar and a surge offensively. The IBI's Michael Goodman provides his second thoughts on the big win for the Indians...

Salazar tosses complete game shutout; Tribe blanks Detroit, 7-0

Is it time to trade Lonnie Chisenhall?
A few months back the IBI's Jeff Ellis brought up what was then a more controversial view that the Indians should strongly look to trade Lonnie Chisenhall. At the time Chisenhall still looked like a breakout candidate and was not that far removed from being a potential all-star, but he held by the numbers which showed he was in for a massive regression, which we are seeing now. He looks into why the Indians should consider trading him and what they do with his spot in the lineup.

Tigers comeback to stun Indians, 4-2 on Martinez's blast
Coming into 2014, J.D. Martinez hit a combined 18 home runs over the last two years with the Houston Astros. He's already slugged 19 this season now as a member of the Detroit Tigers. And his last homer Tuesday night was his biggest one yet. Trailing the Tribe by one in the ninth, the Tigers left fielder took closer Cody Allen deep for a three-run homer, helping Motown comeback to stun the Indians, 4-2.

Second Thoughts Game #135: Tigers 12, Indians 1
This game was about as ugly as they get. The team was coming off an outstanding series against the Royals, possibly the hottest team in the Majors in the month of August, so this game certainly came out of nowhere. The Indians have gone to the bullpen early over the last month very few times. This time it was Corey Kluber who failed to get through the third inning, as unbelievable as that is to say. The IBI's Michael Goodman shares his second thoughts on a disappointing start to a big series for the Indians...

On Monday, he just made the Indians offense look silly. Scoring 12 runs on 20 hits, division rival Detroit routed the Tribe, 12-1 in the first game of a four-game series. Join IBI Indians beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps the game from the ballpark.
