Tribe Happenings: A wild wildcard finish is upon us
One week to go. The Indians currently hold a half game lead for the second wildcard spot and control their own destiny, but a lot can change this final week. As the Indians, Rays and Rangers appear to be setting themselves apart from the pack, Tony goes over the wildcard scenarios and explains all of the tiebreaker scenarios. He also talks about the emergence of Yan Gomes as a core player, the potential return of Justin Masterson, the makeup of the postseason roster and more.

Second Thoughts Game #155: Indians 4, Astros 1
It felt like it was October at the corner of Carneige and Ontario Saturday night. Putting up three runs in the first inning, the Indians made quick work of the Houston Astros for the 4-1 win. Scoring four runs on 16 hits in the first two games of the series, the Tribe scored four runs off Astros starter Paul Clemens through the first four innings. That was far from being the storyline of another Cleveland win though, as Indians starter Scott Kazmir continued his quest for the postseason with another brilliant performance.

Second Thoughts Game #154: Astros 1, Indians 2
Earned runs, unearned runs, walks, hits, errors, extra innings, rain. In the end, it doesn’t matter how you win since they’re all chalked up the same in the win column. On Friday night, the Indians took game two of the four-game set against the lowly Astros 2-1 in a rain-shortened six and a half innings of play. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps how mistakes and mother nature helped usher the Tribe to victory.

What if the Tribe made the Richardson trade?
This shocking trade the Cleveland Browns made earlier in the week where they shipped Trent Richardson off to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first round pick doesn't bother the IBI's John Mast. Cleveland is a tough town for sports fans who have lived through many disappointing seasons, heartbreaking losses, and star players constantly being traded or leaving via free agency. He wonders what it would have been like had Justin Masterson been dealt by the Tribe in July.

Orbiting Cleveland: A 2007 vs. 2013 comparison
With just nine games left in the season, the Indians now have a legitimate shot at making the postseason. Remember the last time we were here? In case you forgot, it was back in 2007, and the Indians came within a game of clinching a World Series berth. This current team may not be as highly regarded as the 2007 version, but as we've seen in the past, once a team makes the playoffs, anything's possible. How does this year's squad stack up to the 2007 one? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he ponders that thought in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts Game #153: Astros 1, Indians 2
It took a few extra innings, but the Indians found a way to come through with a much needed 2-1 win over the Astros on Thursday night in the opener of a long four game series. Ubaldo Jimenez was once again fantastic and the Indians needed a splendid outing from him as the offense struggled all night against the worst pitching staff in baseball. The IBI's Michael Hattery shares his second thoughts on the game...

Trend Spotting: Run scoring trends and what they mean
The Indians offense so far this season has been a paragon of inconsistency, a mercurial mess which leaves us with shelves full of empty bottles of antacid and a broken remote or two. The instability of production that this offense has shown because of the lack of any real anchor’s in the middle of the order and the run scoring trends as a result are interesting, and the IBI's Michael Hattery explains them in his latest Trend Spotting piece.

Second Thoughts Game #152: Indians 2, Royals 7
The Royals won this game 7-2 to complete a second series win against the Indians in as many weeks. While this was a missed opportunity to take the lead in the second wildcard spot, the Indians didn’t lose any ground on a playoff spot this series. That said, it was a sloppy effort from the Indians and the IBI's Michael Goodman shares his second thoughts on the ugly showing...

Royals power past Tribe 7-2, take three-game series
Only the Indians caught themselves howling at the full moon above Kaufmann Stadium Wednesday night. A three run first inning and defensive miscues were too much for the Tribe to overcome, as they fell to the Royals in the rubber match, 7-2. The win gives Kansas City the series victory as they take two out of three against Cleveland for the second time over the last 10 days.

Who will be Tribe's Cody Ross or Edgar Renteria?
As the excitement of the MLB playoffs arrives with the crisp air of fall, heroes of the season begin to come to mind. So often, it’s not the stars who step up and make a huge impact for the team that eventually wins the World Series, it’s the role players. The IBI's John Mast chimes in asks that very question: Which role player has a chance of making the biggest impact for the Indians down the stretch and potentially in the postseason?
