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

Indians left stunned again in Seattle, lose 4-3
It was just last season that Tribe starter Zach McAllister led the league in unearned runs. Making his first start since June 2, the right-hander received no help defensively again Tuesday night. Three more errors and lack run support proved more than a recipe for disaster, as the Indians fell one run short to the Seattle Mariners for the second straight night, 4-3.

A three year Indians review: Second Base
We kicked off this series with a review of first base, so it seems like second base is the natural progression across the diamond. This is an interesting look, mostly because it features the player who has inarguably been the Indians best hitter this season. The IBI's Jeff Ellis breaks down the numbers as he continues to assess whether this team is truly different from teams over the past few seasons.

Second Thoughts Game #99: Twins 2, Indians 1
Following a disappointing series in Minnesota to start the "second half" of the season, the Indians traveled far west for a three-game set with the Mariners. As was the case in the two losses against the Twins, the team pitched well enough to win, but the offense just couldn't do enough to make it stand up. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his second thoughts on another disappointing offensive effort.

Indians offensive woes continue in 2-1 loss to Seattle
In a city known for their lack of sleep, Indians bats remained in a deep snooze Monday night at Safeco Field. More offensive woes continued, as the red hot Seattle Mariners squeezed by the Tribe, 2-1 to win their seventh straight and the first of the three-game series.

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.

A three year Indians review: First Base
The Indians currently have a problem with perception and whether or not they are truly a different team and are improved from season's past. The IBI's Jeff Ellis looks to prove that this Indians team is indeed much different and improved, and in this first piece of the series he takes a look at the first basemen over the last three seasons and shows the improvement.

Second Thoughts Game #98: Indians 7, Twins 1
It was almost a day for the record books for the hard throwing right-hander they call Nasty Masty. Indians starter Justin Masterson (11-7, 3.60 ERA) flirted with one of baseball’s most gratifying tasks—tossing a no-hitter. Masterson breezed by a full six innings of work without surrendering a hit to the Twins, but a bloop single by Brian Dozier to lead off the seventh ended his bid for history. The IBI's Jim Berdysz recaps the outing and a big Tribe win.

Masterson helps Tribe avoid sweep in Minnesota
The Cleveland Indians topped the Minnesota Twins with a 7-1 victory on Sunday, spotlighted by a seven-inning no-hit bid from starter Justin Masterson. Leading the charge offensively were Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley, who collected three RBI's each in the drubbing. Join the IBI's Stephanie Metzger as she recaps how the Indians avoided a sweep by the Twins at Target Field on Sunday afternoon.

Langwell becoming a reliable arm out of the 'pen
Triple-A Columbus right-handed reliever Matt Langwell earned his first call to the big leagues back on June 1st and has since bounced back and forth between Cleveland and Columbus on the I-71 shuttle. He is an interesting bullpen option for the Indians and one that could maybe someday lock himself into a permanent role in middle relief or possibly as a setup man. The IBI's Ethan Day recently caught up with him to see how things are going since being sent back down.

Trend Spotting: Michael Bourn and a few notes
The current baseball structure promotes the extreme of baseball. In Cleveland Indians' terms, this focuses the Indians' media energy on the excruciating struggles of Mark Reynolds, and the growing brilliance of Jason Kipnis. Michael Bourn has been playing in between both extremes and has been quietly producing stats worthy of the contract he signed just prior to spring training. Join IBI's SABR-superstar, Michael Hattery, as he takes a closer look.

Second Thoughts Game #97: Twins 3, Indians 2
If you thought Friday night was a nightmare for the Indians, Saturday became the ugly sequel. After Cleveland jumped out to a 2-0 lead, Minnesota scored three unanswered runs for the second straight night to defeat the Tribe late, 3-2. Starting pitcher Corey Kluber looked sharp through his five innings of work, giving up no runs on just three hits, walking two and striking out seven, but left early with a minor injury. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts on another tough loss.

Around the Farm: July 20, 2013
It was an interesting night for the Indians' affiliates, as two teams won thanks to extra-inning homers. The headliners include a lefty starter that has re-emerged as an intriguing option for the Indians, another "toolsy" player who has re-emerged after a career so far mired by injury, and finishes with a closer that should be in Cleveland. Find out who these three are, as well as the two that won their games with the long-ball for both Columbus and Akron as Jim Pete brings another edition of Around the Farm.
