Yan Gomes' thoroughly unexpected season
There is no doubt that Yan Gomes has come out of nowhere to be one of the best players on the team. The big question is whether or not Gomes can sustain it going forward. So far in baseball history, there has not been anyone quite like Gomes, but that does not mean he cannot sustain this success. Jim Piascik analyzes Gomes' performance to date, why it is so unique, and takes a look at some possible outcomes going forward.

Second Thoughts Game #122: Indians 2, Athletics 3
When your team gets eight hits and draws nine walks in a game, you expect them to score more than two runs. Such was not the case on Friday night as the Indians dropped the series opener in Oakland 3-2 to the A’s. When a pitching-sound team like Oakland gives you opportunities to not only score, but take complete command of a game, you must take advantage. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he offers his Second Thoughts and recaps a frustrating loss in the Bay Area.

Orbiting Cleveland: The fall of a pitching prospect
While no Indians prospect has seen his stock grow more than Danny Salazar this year, unfortunately no Indians prospect has seen his stock fall more than right-hander Trevor Bauer. Bauer has been somewhat of an enigma as he's struggled with consistency and does not seem to be the near-finished Major League product that the Indians thought they were acquiring. How should the Indians handle him moving forward? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he chimes in on the subject in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts: Playoff outlook on a positive Thursday
The Minnesota series and really the last week and a half have been troubling even if you are a glass half full guy.

The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a quick look at the Indians playoff outlook this season and beyond...

What's Wrong (?) at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians have entered another August, and have found themselves struggling to win baseball games.

It couldn't have come at a worst time, as the Indians are falling further away from the Tigers and the wildcard.

Second Thoughts Game #120: Indians 5, Twins 2

Second Thoughts Game #119: Indians 0, Twins 3
Rookie southpaw Andrew Albers dominated the Tribe in a two-hit shutout effort. Albers also got a helping hand or two from his defense as several sensational catches and plays throughout the night.
