The WAR Room: Aguilar, Ramirez stay hot in Columbus
The WAR Room is back again, bringing you the 2014 advanced stats for every Cleveland minor leaguer. After looking at the pitchers last week, today we focus on the hitters, in particular Jesus Aguilar and Jose Ramirez pushing to make it back to the majors. Though limited roster spots in Cleveland (and injury in the case of Ramirez) may keep the pair in Triple-A, neither is being held back by their performance. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks down the hitters throughout the system and takes you into The WAR Room.

Clippers continue to play well even with roster challenges
At the moment, things are falling into place for the Columbus Clippers. Manager Chris Tremie’s team won 14 of 18 from May 31 to June 17. Three losses in the past three days still don’t hide the fact that the team is in the middle of a confident stride. The IBI's Grant Miller writes about the Clippers recent hot play....

Around The Farm:  June 21, 2014
When it comes to prospects, sometimes the divide between one who makes it and one who does not just comes down to health. Roberto Perez and LeVon Washington are both examples of this, as they are both in the midst of big years after injury-riddled 2013 seasons. Now that both are healthy, Perez and Washington are raking, as they did Saturday. Join Arthur Kinney as he writes about Perez and his future, Washington and his potential rise, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Cabrera, Tigers edge Cleveland, 5-4 in extras
Pick your poison. Deadlocked in a 4-4 tie in the tenth inning with a runner on second, Indians manager Terry Francona decided for Cody Allen to pitch to baseball's best hitter with first base open. Bad move? Some may certainly say so. But when Victor Martinez is hitting behind Miguel Cabrera, either slugger can bring just as much venom. That's exactly what led to the Tigers 5-4 victory over the Tribe Saturday night. Join IBI Tribe beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps the game from a sold out Progressive Field.

Well, Ken Babby may be well on his way to writing the next chapter in the city's baseball heritage. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he details the revamping of a franchise and a community.

Second Thoughts Game #74: Tigers 6, Indians 4
What can you say? Don’t pitch to guys named Martinez. Former Indian Victor Martinez continued to torture his former team, hitting a first pitch two-run shot to right in the fourth inning of Friday night’s 6-4 loss to the Tigers. As bad as it was to give up that homer, the three-run home run that John Axford gave up to J.D. Martinez in the eighth was the big one. The IBI's Michael Rich provides his second thoughts on the game...
