Second Thoughts: Game #22 - Indians 6, White Sox 3
The Indians evened up their three game series with the White Sox on Wednesday night, and today will go for two in a row and take the rubber match. Last night the Indians got big knocks from Carlos Santana and Travis Hafner, Josh Tomlin was steady, and the bullpen continues to be the strength of the team. Charlie Adams breaks the game down and provides his second thoughts...

Around the Farm: May 2, 2012
Matt LaPorta continues to steal the thunder here at ATF, and while it drives this author absolutely insane, it can be nothing but good for the Indians down the road. Jesus Aguilar returned to the spotlight with another big night that should continue his progression. The top slot goes to an under-the-current starter that could very well turn into a top-of-the-rotation star. Jim Pete tears up IPI's Around the Farm: starring Matt LaPorta.

Getting offensive about the defense
With the imminent arrival of Johnny Damon, the time feels right to take a look at the curious makeup of the 2012 Cleveland Indians roster, specifically the defense which has a little dyslexic feeling about it. A basic baseball axiom preaches for a team’s defensive strength to be built up the middle while the offense comes from the corners, but that's not the case for the Indians says Greg Dew.

Second Thoughts: Game #21 - Indians 2, White Sox 7
Well, that was ugly. Chris Sale was tough on the Indians again as he and the rest of the White Sox' staff held the Indians to 2 runs, their 8th straight game scoring 4 runs or less as well as 16 of 21 games. On top of that, Ubaldo Jimenez was a train wreck and the defense was brutal. All of that is a recipe for a bad loss, which Charlie Adams' gives his "second thoughts" on.

Around the Farm: May 1st, 2012
Weather and off-days have been wreaking havoc on the past two-days ATF's, but the beat still goes on. In 2010, tonight's top player was consider a candidate to take over the third or second base job in Cleveland, thanks to a big minor league season. After a setback thanks to an oblique injury, Jason Kipnis, Lonnie Chisenhall and Jack Hannahan stole his thunder, as he finds himself demoted to Akron. Who's tonight's top gun? Tune into IPI's original ATF to find out...after the jump...

Mudcats split a pair
The Carolina Mudcats and Lynchburg Hillcats completed their suspended game on Tuesday evening with the Mudcats winning 5-2. The Hillcats took the originally scheduled game, played in seven innings, 5-2 at night’s end. Carolina (11-13) left the field last night with a 4-1 lead over Lynchburg (14-9) when heavy fog reduced visibility enough to halt play. The team picked up where they left off as back-to-back walks allowed Carlos Moncrief to drive in a run with a hit. The single increased the Mudcats advantage to 5-1. Lynchburg retaliated with a run in the fifth thanks to a sacrifice fly by Tommy La Stella.
