Tribe Happenings: Are the Indians...the Twins?
In his weekly Sunday notebook Tony compares this current concoction of the Indians to a Twins team that made a pretty strong run in the AL Central from 2002-2009. While the Indians have a long way to go to enjoy the kind of success the Twins had during that time, the comparison is not far off at all. He also touches on how the Indians absolutely should not have a fire sale, the tough situation Matt LaPorta is in, and more.

Second Thoughts: Game #58-Cardinals 2, Indians 0
The Indians offense was stymied by one Kyle Lohse, a right-handed starter formerly with the Minnesota Twins who never really had any luck with the Indians over the years. That all changed on Saturday night, as the Indians were shutout for the first time in 2012. Carlos Beltran, who was pursued by the Indians this offseason, had three hits, including his 17th homer, as the Cardinals won 2-0. Jim Berdysz gives his Second Thoughts about game 58, after the jump...

McAllister, three homers, lead Columbus to 4-3 victory
For a couple seconds Saturday night, the second largest crowd of the season at Huntington Park didn’t know what to do. Columbus shortstop Gregorio Petit had just launched a towering drive down the left-field line, but the fans remained silent, as they, and many of the players and coaches, weren’t sure if the hit was fair or foul.

Last night was a good night all around in the Cleveland Indians organization as every single team won from the big league team in Cleveland to the Low-A team in Lake County.

Around the Farm: June 7, 2012
Tyler Cannon showed offensive promise last season, but struggled to start the season in 2012. Ronny Rodriguez did the same. Both found their inner grooves on Thursday night. Juan Diaz hit a blast that continued his hit streak since returning from Cleveland. The top ATF performer showcased the right-stuff, well, the Wright stuff anyways.
