Is it time to trade Lonnie Chisenhall?
A few months back the IBI's Jeff Ellis brought up what was then a more controversial view that the Indians should strongly look to trade Lonnie Chisenhall. At the time Chisenhall still looked like a breakout candidate and was not that far removed from being a potential all-star, but he held by the numbers which showed he was in for a massive regression, which we are seeing now. He looks into why the Indians should consider trading him and what they do with his spot in the lineup.

Second Thoughts Game #135: Tigers 12, Indians 1
This game was about as ugly as they get.

The IBI's Michael Goodman shares his second thoughts on a disappointing start to a big series for the Indians...
