Notes From the Wigwam: Divisional race effectively ends
The Cleveland Indians just endured a very difficult week as the team went 1-5 to fall to 7.5 games back in the American League Central Division. Despite the poor performance, the Indians remain very much alive in the AL Wild Card race as the team is just 3.5 games back of the Tampa Bay Rays. Could this be the week that the Tribe begins its playoff push? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he looks back at the week that was in his weekly Indians notebook, Notes From the Wigwam.

Second Thoughts Game #136: Indians 4, Tigers 0
Much needed? You could say that again. For more than a week now, the Tribe had been looking for that one big hit from the struggling Cleveland offense. Deadlocked in a scoreless tie in the ninth inning Sunday, they finally got that hit with one swing of the bat from third baseman Mike Aviles. Join IBI's Jim Berdysz as he shares his second thoughts on a huge Tribe victory.

Aviles's slam propels Tribe to 4-0 win to end road trip
Despite Danny Salazar and Justin Verlander matching one another pitch-for-pitch through six innings, neither factored into the game's final decision. Mike Aviles hit a grand slam, the first of his career, off Joaquin Benoit in the ninth as the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 4-0 in the finale of a three-game series. Join the IBI's Nathan Kemp as he recaps the Tribe's dramatic win to cap off an otherwise brutal road trip.

Ranking the 2013 Cleveland Indians' roster at the stretch run
With the calendar turning to September, Cleveland remains in playoff contention with a 71-64 record. Sure, the team has its issues, but anyone would have taken this before the season. It is September 1 and Cleveland could make the playoffs. That's amazing considering where the team was last August. Join Jim Piascik as he ranks the roster in advance of the September callups.

Second Thoughts Game #135: Tigers 10, Indians 5
No Miggy, no problem. Even without Miguel Cabrera in the Tigers lineup, Detroit still handed Cleveland their fifth straight loss defeating them, 10-5. Five runs on nine his even for the Indians wouldn't be enough in the heart of Motown, as the Tigers exploded for 10 runs on 15 hits offensively. IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his Second Thoughts on a another dismal Tribe loss.

Second Thoughts Game #134: Indians 2, Tigers 7
A rough start for McAllister, a lost fly ball by Bourn with the bases loaded, wild pitches and more missed scoring opportunities did the Indians in again on Friday night in Detroit even with Miguel Cabrera taken out of the game early with an injury. The rain provided some relief to the torment, but ended up forcing the game to be called to hand Cleveland their fourth straight loss. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan for his thoughts on the game.

Orbiting Cleveland: Gauging Jose Ramirez's value
With September callups around the corner, one of the possible names being discussed is infielder Jose Ramirez. Ramirez has had an excellent 2013 campaign with the Akron Aeros, and there seems to be a belief that he could immediately help the Major League club as a utility man... But what if he can be more? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he discusses that very notion in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts Game #133: Indians 1, Braves 3
The Indians' struggles offensively continued on Thursday night as they dropped another close one 3-1 to the Braves. Once again the Indians held the Braves to three runs or less, but once again they lose because of an offense that scored just three total runs the entire series. The IBI's Michael Hattery looks at the offensive struggles to see if a turnaround is coming and also has high praise for Ubaldo Jimenez's great night.
