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.

Oakland slams Cleveland 13-3, sweep three-game series
All winter, the Indians pushed the slogan "Unfinished business," claiming to have more work to do after sneaking into the postseason last year. Yet on the brink of summer, the Tribe sits in the unfinished basement of the A.L. Central where the workload continues to mount quickly. Sunday afternoon proved no different, as Oakland slammed Cleveland 13-3 to sweep the three-game weekend series. Join IBI Indians beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps the action from the ballpark.

Second Thoughts Game #43: Oakland 6, Cleveland 2
The ingredients presented to Cleveland and Oakland were very much similar: an entirely comparable number of baserunners, an entirely comparable set of circumstances. Yet the X-Factor separating the two teams on Saturday was clutch, the ability to score with men on base. The IBI's John Grimm notes clutch's importance yet its fickle unpredictability, and makes notes of managerial decisions as well as the strength of Cleveland's offensive contact to date.

No bats, more errors help Oakland trounce Indians, 6-2
Scott Kazmir wasn't too happy in his return to Progressive Field, but his team sure loves it here. Scoring six runs on eight hits, Oakland pitching continued to get the best of a stymied Indians offense Saturday, as the Indians fell to the A's, 6-2. It wasn't just a poor offensive showing either, but a lack of defense that continues to leave manager Terry Francona and his ballclub in limbo. Join IBI Tribe beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps another frustrating game at the ballpark.

Second Thoughts Game #42: Oakland 11, Cleveland 1
What started out encouraging quickly transformed into disappointment after Zach McAllister allows eight runs in the second inning. On a night when the Oakland offense hit more home runs than did the Indians had total hits, the night became a prolonged, sordid failure - one so Epic that it merits Iliadic parallels. The IBI's John Grimm breaks down the defeat with Homeric flair.
