Should the Indians move Perez out of the closer's role?
For those whose hair hasn’t turned gray or been pulled out after Monday night’s – let’s say dramatic – win over the Royals, I have a question for you: Should the Indians consider moving Chris Perez out of the closer’s role for the rest of the year as they make their push for the playoffs? That's a question that the IBI's Jake Dungan throws out there and wonders if the Indians would be better off with a change to the order of the backend of their bullpen.

Second Thoughts Game #143: Royals 3, Indians 4
After a disappointing conclusion to the Mets series, the Indians looked to rebound quickly against a Royals team that is close behind in the wild card race. Despite the bullpen's best efforts to hand over the game, they were led to victory by their best pitcher in recent months. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his second thoughts on another masterful peformance by the resurgent Ubaldo Jimenez and the continued struggles of Chris Perez.

Jimenez pitches another gem, Indians edge Royals, 4-3
Lookout Tribe Town, there’s a new Ramirez in town! In an early September battle for a wild card spot, the Indians kept doing what they have continue to do all season long; grind out wins. Monday night showed just that as the Tribe squeezed past the Royals, 4-3 to take game one of the three-game series. Join the IBI's Jim Berdysz as he recaps Ubaldo's strong start, Ramirez's first big league hit and more ninth inning drama.

Second Thoughts Game #142: Mets 2, Indians 1
There would be no magic at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario like there was 18 years ago, just one familiar foe. Clinching their first ever division title on Sept. 8, 1995, the only thing the Indians clinched on Sunday was their first loss in four games. Cleveland had chances to cash in offensively, but couldn't get that big hit like they have during the first two games of the series. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts on the tough loss...

Bats go quiet against Dice-K as Mets pull away late with 2-1 win
Daisuke Matsuzaka kept his former team quiet over five and and two-thirds innings and Chris Perez gave up a tie-breaking RBI-double in the ninth, as the Mets beat the Indians 2-1 Sunday at Progressive Field. Cleveland entered the game trailing Tampa Bay by one game for the second wild card spot in the American League, but failed to capitalize. Join the IBI's Nathan Kemp as he recaps the Tribe's failed attempt at a sweep.

Tribe Happenings: Indians are winning, but lack connection
The Indians sit one game out of the playoffs with 21 games to go and they are set up for a wild finish these last three weeks. This is much to the surprise of many fans who have given up on them at various points of the season and the severe lack of support at the gates over the season. Tony talks about the disconnect the Indians have with their fans, the miraculous rebound of Ubaldo Jimenez, looks into his crystal ball at Jimenez's future, and more.

Second Thoughts Game #141: Indians 9, Mets 4
Meet the Mets, meet the Mets, step right up and BEAT the Mets! It was another offensive explosion for the Tribe on Saturday, as the team took down the struggling New York Mets for the second straight night, 9-4. Offensively, Cleveland continues to put up big numbers scoring 17 runs over the first two games of the three-game weekend series. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts....

Indians down Mets 9-4 for fourth straight win
Cleveland struck for five runs in the first inning, establishing a lead they would maintain for the entire game, as the Indians beat the New York Mets 9-4 Saturday night. Corey Kluber was impressive in his return from the disabled list as he allowed just two earned runs while Asdrubal Cabrera and Nick Swisher each hit home runs to supply the offense. Join the IBI's Nathan Kemp as he provides all the play-by-play from the huge Tribe win.

Second Thoughts Game #140: Mets 1, Indians 8
A week ago, we were in the middle of a brutal 1-5 road trip. While some of the slumps this season have been particularly frustrating, this team has proven time and time and time again that they are not in this to roll over and quit. The visiting Mets were blown out 8-1 as Scott Kazmir's dominant start and Nick Swisher's grand slam paved the way for the Tribe. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan for his thoughts on the victory.

With the win, the Indians have won three games in a row as they continue their push toward a playoff spot and continue to strengthen their standing in the wildcard race.

Orbiting Cleveland: Yan Gomes, superstar?
Of all the Indians' offseason acquisitions, Yan Gomes has arguably had the most unexpected impact. He was initially thought to be an afterthought in the Esmil Rogers trade, but he has since cemented himself as key member of the Tribe's roster. Gomes has been so good, in fact, that he could be on his way to becoming a Major League everyday catcher. But could his ceiling even be higher? Do the Indians have a potential star on their hands? The IBI's Steve Orbanek ponders that notion in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts: Starting Pitching and a pennant race
The offensive struggles and upside have been fairly well profiled. Beating a dead horse is one that we are attempting to avoid at least to the best of our ability, but perhaps the most pressing question is not whether the offense will bounce back - because it will - but rather can this rotation hold together for twenty-three more games. The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a look at that question in an off day edition of Second Thoughts...

A three year Indians review: The Starting Rotation
Next up in the three year review series are the starting pitchers. The IBI's Jeff Ellis handled this group on the whole and used some advanced stats to try and show how things have changed for the Indians than in previous years. At the start of the year he felt this was a weak link unit for the Indians and they would ultimately fail because of it, but their showing to date is impressive and bodes well for the future.
