Around the Farm: July 29, 2012
The Indians had a lost weekend in Minneapolis, but their minor league teams continue to plug away with some good and some not-so-good performances. In Columbus both Tim Fedroff and Ezequiel Carrera have been on fire, but the one player in the system who may be playing the most consistent ball over the past month and a half is Mahoning Valley's Joey Wendle. Find out about him and more after the jump...

The International League’s leader in runs per game played like it Sunday night, but the Clippers’ pitching staff faltered, and Columbus lost for the first time since Wednesday.

Second Thoughts:  Game #102 - Twins 5, Indians 1
The Twins completed a sweep of the Indians on Sunday and outscored the Indians in the series 28-6. With the trade deadline looming, the Indians have way more questions than answers at this point. Was this series the beginning of the end for Cleveland's playoff hopes, or should the upcoming deadline inspire some hope? With an off day on Monday and the Indians not playing again until after the deadline, things could get very interesting the next several hours. Andy Nichols chimes in with his second thoughts...

Allen's rapid ascent a surprise even to himself
The rise to the big leagues is a tough, tumultuous trail at times, but Cleveland Indians’ relief pitcher Cody Allen was fortunate enough to fast-forward the process.

Stephanie Metzger recently sat down with the talented righty to try and bring into focus what has been a crazy, exciting year for him.

Tribe Happenings: Buy, do not sell
The Indians have proven to be a mediocre team this season. They are too inconsistent with their starting pitching and offense to win as a consistent pace, have flaws with their roster and are fading in the AL Central as the calendar gets set to flip to August. But Tony believes the Indians should be buyers and look for ways to improve the roster, and also says they need to take more risks and work to restore the faith in the fans.

Sever’s first career blast lead’s Scrappers to 3-2 win
Eastwood Field is due for a name change. Eastwood Wetlands, maybe? Or even, Eastwood Atoll. Whatever it is, it’s wet. That didn’t stop the Scrappers from entertaining the Brooklyn Cyclones, though, on a muddy diamond that looked like it would be better served hosting a football game. The Scrappers won 3-2.

AZL Indians hold on after 5-run 1st inning
GOODYEAR-The Indians offense struck early, but not often on Friday evening with a five run 1st inning off of the Brewers' Austin Hall. The remarkable thing about that 5-run 1st inning is the fact they did it all with two outs; the Tribe's outfield tandem of D'Vone McClure and Tyler Booth grounded out to start the game and then came the heavy lifting--Dorssys Paulino legged out a triple followed by a single and walk courtesy of Jorge Martinez and Nelson Rodriguez, respectively.
