Indians acquire Mark Rzepczynski from the St. Louis Cardinals
The Cleveland Indians completed a deal with the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday afternoon. While the Indians had been rumored to be talking to the Cardinals for the past few months, this certainly wasn't the deal that folks were pondering. Instead of dealing away Asdrubal Cabrera for a potential starter, they dealt a low-level minor leaguer for a left-handed reliever.

A three year Indians review: Catcher
In his fifth part of this series, the IBI's Jeff Ellis takes a look at the Indians catching position over the past three years and shows how productive the position has been for them and how it has significantly improved this season. He also sheds light on what a crazy talent Carlos Santana has become and how he is no doubt a top five player at his position.

Second Thoughts Game #105: White Sox 2, Indians 3
After a quality sweep of the Rangers, the Indians welcomed a down and selling White Sox team to town for a four-game set. The run of quality starting pitching continued, but the visiting team pitched just as well, resulting in a grind-out battle all the way. Tied late, a record-setting walk-off home run sent the Indians to their fifth straight win. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his second thoughts on a thrilling late inning win for the Indians...

A three year Indians review: Third Base
In his fourth part in this series, the IBI's Jeff Ellis delves into third base to finish off the infield and looks at whether the Indians have improved at the position this season. This is a position that has been in flux since Casey Blake was traded in July of 2008 as the Indians have tired vets like Jack Hannahan and top prospects like Andy Marte and Lonnie Chisenhall, but have struggled to find consistency and a long term solution.

Notes From the Wigwam: Tribe caps strong week with sweep
The Cleveland Indians had a successful week as they are currently on a four-game win streak and coming of a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers. Despite the strong performance, the Tribe was unable to gain ground on the Tigers as Detroit also had a strong week and went 6-1. Nonetheless, the Tribe now has momentum again that they'll look to carry into this week. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he recaps the week that was in his weekly notebook, Notes From the Wigwam.

Second Thoughts Game #104: Rangers 0, Indians 6
For the first time in 33 years, the Indians have swept the Texas Rangers in Cleveland. At the center of it all for the Tribe was another outstanding starting pitching performance, this time by right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez who went a dominant eight shutout innings against the Rangers offense surrendering just two hits while walking three and striking out six. Victory was the ninth in the last 13 ballgames for the streaking Tribe, and the IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts on the win.

Tribe Happenings: The countdown to Lindor is on
There is a lot going on with the Tribe, and in today's Tribe Happenings the IBI's Tony Lastoria takes a look at the changing of the guard that is close to occurring at shortstop for the Indians.

Second Thoughts Game #103: Indians 1, Rangers 0
The matchup had pitcher’s duel written all over it. In one corner, Indians ace and All-Star Justin Masterson came into the ballgame looking to match his career-high with 12 victories. In the other, Rangers ace and All-Star Yu Darvish led all of Major League Baseball in strikeouts. The two hard throwing right-handers lived up to the hype, as both teams combined for just one run on eight hits, as a home run by Tribe center fielder Michael Bourn was enough for Nasty Masty and the Tribe to edge by with the 1-0 victory. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts on a great win for the Indians...

Join the IBI's Nathan Kemp as he recaps all the action from the classic pitchers' duel.

Trend Spotting: Bullpen problems and avoiding risk
It is 7-1, Kluber is pitching well as usual, the Tribe seems to be rolling, winning a very important first game of the series. This is exactly the shot in the arm they needed, a big win making it two in a row, and then all of the sudden it happened. The Tribe had to go to the bullpen. The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a deeper look at the struggles of two of the Indians' most vital pieces in the bullpen: Joe Smith and Vinnie Pestano.

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.
