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.

Raburn lifts Indians over Rangers in 11-8 walk-off
After twice contemplating a sacrifice bunt, Ryan Raburn hit a walk-off, three-run home run in the 11th inning off Jason Frasor, giving the Cleveland Indians a 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night. It was the seventh walk-off win this season for the Indians, who began a stretch of 14-of-17 games at home. The IBI's Nathan Kemp recaps Raburn's memorable evening.

Orbiting Cleveland: Gauging trade deadline priorities
The MLB Trade Deadline is less than a week away, which means that there are plenty of rumors as to what the Cleveland Indians should do. Everyone seems to have their own take on who the Tribe should go after, but it's evident that the team is in need of an upgrade. Mark Reynolds has struggled immensely over the past few months, and the IBI's Steve Orbanek returns to Orbiting Cleveland this week to opine that the Indians need to acquire a professional bat to replace Reynolds.

Second Thoughts: Lineup optimization and Yan Gomes
The Indians offense is strewn with inconsistency. It may be a challenge to pick at an offense that just dropped 10 runs in Seattle but we all know that the week preceding was an offensive struggle. The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a stab at analyzing and determining what he believes is the Indians optimum lineup, and it is much different than what Francona has been writing into the lineup card of late. He also chimes in with a request to get Yan Gomes more playing time.

A three year Indians review: Shortstop
In his third part of this series, the IBI's Jeff Ellis takes a look at the shortstop position for the Indians over the past three seasons. The first two positions he looked at were first base and second base and the Indians have seen significant improvement at both, and this time he reviews the shortstop position which is the only position which has stayed consistent over the last few years for the Indians.

Second Thoughts Game #101: Indians 10, Mariners 1
The Indians needed this one and they got it by absolutely dominating the Mariners on the mound and at the plate in a 10-1 win. Michael Bourn had the big blow with a grand slam, and Scott Kazmir continues to pitch like the Kazmir of five years ago. The IBI's Michael Goodman shares his "second thoughts" on a much needed Tribe win...

Mysteries & making moves at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians are frustrating. Their starting rotation is good, or bad, depending on the month. The offense is good, or bad, depending on the player. The defense was supposed to be better, and is falling apart. The bullpen was supposed to be good, and is bad. Is there light at the end of the tunnel, and a quick look at some players the Indians may be looking at at the trade deadline.

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.
