Second Thoughts Game #49: Baltimore 8, Cleveland 4
Faced with a tired bullpen, the Cleveland Indians called up lefty T.J. House for his first major league start. While House put in a crucial six-inning performance, offense was the order of the day, with the Orioles posting 14 hits in an 8-4 defeat of the Indians. The IBI's John Grimm reflects on the performance, both as it relates to the rookie starter's use and to left-fielder Michael Brantley.

Second Thoughts Game #47: Tigers 10, Indians 11
A walk-off balk is one of the rarest occasions in baseball. From some cursory research, it appears this has only happened about 15 times in HISTORY. While the way the game was won on Wednesday is certainly the most unbelievable event that occurred, the game featured three separate comebacks by the Indians and is without a doubt the biggest (and most improbable) win of the year. The IBI's Michael Goodman provides his "second thoughts" on the amazing win...

Indians top Tigers on a balk-off, sweep three-game series
They never flinched. "I don't even know where to start with that game," Tribe outfielder David Murphy said. "I don't know if that was a baseball game or a marathon combined with a circus." Scoring 11 runs on 17 hits, the Indians edged Detroit, 11-10, winning with game a walk-off balk in the bottom of the 13th inning.

Asdrubal Cabrera: Above-average players & contract extensions
There may be no player on the Cleveland Indians that draws the same sustained levels of disdain from the fanbase as Asdrubal Cabrera. In the big picture, however, the IBI's John Grimm asserts that Cabrera's diverse offensive portfolio and improved defense is a net positive for Cleveland, and he reflects on how Cabrera's widely-panned contract, counter-intuitively, demonstrates the effectiveness of contract extensions as a team-building strategy.

Second Thoughts Game #46: Tigers 2, Indians 6
The Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night by a score of 6-2. The Indians received most of their offense in a four-run second inning thanks to five consecutive batters getting a hit or walk with just one out. While the Indians offense pulled together a great inning to account for a decent night, Trevor Bauer’s most-recent call-up was the real story. The IBI's Charlie Adams provides his second thoughts on the big win for the Indians...

Bauer tosses a gem, leads Indians past Detroit, 6-2
The odds of winning the lottery? One in 175 million. The odds of the last place Indians beating Justin Verlander and his $180 million contract Tuesday night? Apparently not as high as many thought. Backed by a total team effort on both sides of the ball, the Tribe cashed in against Verlander and first place Detroit, winning 6-2 to take the first two games of the three-game series. Join IBI Indians beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps the win from the ballpark.

Bauer is ready to rock and roll in Cleveland's rotation
After a disappointing 2013 for Trevor Bauer, the righty labored through the offseason and after recording seven quality starts it is apparent his hard work has paid off. Bauer has been the essence of consistency this season at Triple-A Columbus and because of that he will make his second big league start of the season Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers. The IBI's Adrienne Robbins caught up with him before his departure from Columbus....

Second Thoughts Game #45: Tigers 4, Indians 5
After getting swept with absolute ease by perhaps the second best team in baseball, the Indians welcomed in the one team that is likely better. The Indians gave up leads of 1-0, 3-1, and 4-3 on the night before finally scoring once again when the Tigers had no shot to comeback....with a walkoff homer from Michael Brantley in the 10th inning. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his second thoughts on the game...

Brantley's walk-off homer sends Indians over Tigers in extras
Just what the doctor ordered. For a team that has struggled virtually all season, there continues to be one Tribe player that has remained consistent, and so smooth. Knotted in a 4-4 tie in the tenth inning, Michael Brantley gave the Indians their biggest hit of the year. Leading the club in both homers and RBI, Dr. Smooth added to his total launching a walk-off home run off Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque to give the Tribe a 5-4 win Monday. Join IBI Indians beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps the victory from the ballpark.

Tribe Happenings: Indians offense is in need of an overhaul
The Indians defense has been a hatchet job worse than the goriest of horror movies, and the offense is wildly inconsistent and lacks any punch whatsoever. Without a pretty solid effort from their starting rotation and bullpen up to his point, the Indians might be rivaling the Cubs and Astros as the worst team in baseball – though are dangerously close to that level anyway. The IBI's Tony Lastoria talks about the issues with the Indians lineup, why Jesus Aguilar should be given a chance, and more.

Second Thoughts Game #44: Athletics 13, Indians 3
It was almost the same story every game. The Indians would take an early 1-0 lead, but that advantage would be short-lived as the A's bats roared back to not only take the lead, but put some distance between them and the Tribe on the scoreboard. 11-1, 6-2 and 13-3 were the finals of the three games with Oakland on top in every one. The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his thoughts on the sweep.
