‘Cutters deal Scrappers fourth straight loss
After getting swept in Troy by the ValleyCats, the Scrappers hoped the home turf of Eastwood Field would provide some much needed momentum. It wasn’t friendly Tuesday, however. The Scrappers only gathered six hits in contest, losing their fourth straight game after dropping Tuesday’s opener with the Williamsport Crosscutters 6-2.

Smoke Signals is back on the cyberwaves tonight from 10:00pm – 11:00pm EST. The Indians are in a rapid downward spiral, one where just a week and a half ago people believed they might get back into the division race to where now people have completely given up on the season. Tonight, Tony and Jim will talk about and try to find out just where things went wrong, who might be to blame, what can be done to fix things, and if the Indians can truly get this thing righted and win next season.

Second Thoughts: Game #109-Twins 14, Indians 3
As Keith Jackson used to say...."Whoa Nelly!". That's the feeling many have as this Indians slide continues to get worse and worse with every game played. The Indians lost last night to the Twins 14-3 thanks to a 10-run second inning, and lost for the 10th straight time. Adam McGavin chimes in with his "second thoughts" on another bad night at the ballyard for the Tribe...

Scrappers get swept by Tri-City
Despite a solid start from Jacob Lee, the Scrappers were left licking their wounds Monday afternoon, as they fell victim to a three game sweep at the hands of the Tri-City ValleyCats with a 5-1 loss. That start from Lee was, albeit short, almost flawless. He pitched four shutout innings, allowing only one hit and two walks while fanning five.

Clippers fall to Durham in rain shortened game
Poor weather caused the game between Columbus and Durham to get called early, but the Clippers weren’t playing well enough to win or mount a comeback anyway. Columbus fell to the Durham Bulls, 4-1, in North Carolina in a shortened seven-inning contest that had three rain delays.

Around the Farm: August 6, 2012
It definitely wasn't a showcase night for the Tribe organization, with Akron and Carolina off, and Columbus and Mahoning Valley swinging wet noodles. Lake County managed to walk-off with a win, with Jose Ramirez keeping his average near .350 on the year, and Bryson Myles starting to regain his prospect footing after injuries threatened to derail him earlier this year. The AZL Indians continued to rake, but the top spot in ATF goes to Mr. Walk-Off himself. Find out who that is, after the jump...

Rodriguez showing no fear in Lake County
The Lake County Captains are a team full of prospective minor league ballplayers. With the exception of Francisco Lindor, none may have as much talent as Luigi Rodriguez. Rodriguez possesses that multi-tool ability that everybody covets, and while he has a long road to the majors, his plus-plus speed just may get him there early. IPI's Stephanie Metzger spent some time with Rodriguez...after the jump...

Sailing with the Clippers: 7/30/12 to 8/05/12
After ending the last full week of July on a tear, the Clippers limped into August and didn’t get much better as the first week of the month went on. Columbus went 13-3 the last two full weeks of July, the hottest the team has been all season long. The Clippers then took a turn for the worse this week, going 2-4. Andrew Holleran talks about it all in his weekly notebook...

Second Thoughts: Game #108 Tigers 10, Indians 8
There is really not a lot more that can be said about the Indians fall of late. It has been rough to watch, and has really made a lot of people question the Tribe. I think the biggest non story that this rough stretch has brought to my attention has been how Jason Kipnis has been awful since May. He was merely below average in June, but has been horrid since then.
