Second Thoughts Game #134: Indians 2, Tigers 7
A rough start for McAllister, a lost fly ball by Bourn with the bases loaded, wild pitches and more missed scoring opportunities did the Indians in again on Friday night in Detroit even with Miguel Cabrera taken out of the game early with an injury. The rain provided some relief to the torment, but ended up forcing the game to be called to hand Cleveland their fourth straight loss. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan for his thoughts on the game.

Orbiting Cleveland: Gauging Jose Ramirez's value
With September callups around the corner, one of the possible names being discussed is infielder Jose Ramirez. Ramirez has had an excellent 2013 campaign with the Akron Aeros, and there seems to be a belief that he could immediately help the Major League club as a utility man... But what if he can be more? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he discusses that very notion in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts Game #133: Indians 1, Braves 3
The Indians' struggles offensively continued on Thursday night as they dropped another close one 3-1 to the Braves. Once again the Indians held the Braves to three runs or less, but once again they lose because of an offense that scored just three total runs the entire series. The IBI's Michael Hattery looks at the offensive struggles to see if a turnaround is coming and also has high praise for Ubaldo Jimenez's great night.

Braves tomahawk Tribe out of Atlanta, sweep series
A roadtrip that had the chance to become a nightmare for the Tribe is starting to turn into a reality.

Although they outhit Atlanta 22-21 in the series, the Tribe was outscored 8-3 in 27 innings, never getting that big hit offensively.

Trend Spotting: Chisenhall’s struggles and Ramirez’s climb
Lost amidst the substandard performance of Asdrubal Cabrera, the mercurial stay of Mark Reynolds, and the mildly subpar performances of Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn, the struggles that Lonnie Chisenhall has had in his second stint with the Indians this year have been passed by. The IBI's Michael Hattery looks at those struggles in his latest and even offers up a suggestion that it may be time to bring up Jose Ramirez.

The IBI's Michael Goodman provides his second thoughts on a frustrating loss.

Braves walk-off with 3-2 win, Indians offensive woes continue
The stymied Indians offense may be the coldest thing in the heart of Hotlanta.

Right-hander Justin Masterson (14-9, 3.49 ERA) gave his team another quality start, allowing two runs on five hits through six innings.

It's the turning point at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians have weaved their way through the 2013 season with a MacGyver-like precision.

With the next eight games against teams in or fighting for the playoffs, Tribe Time really is now.
