A red-hot debate: A comparison of Indians and Reds hitters
There's a lot of similarities between the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds. Both are in-state rivals, and both teams use a similar economic model. Yet, despite the similarities, both teams have had very difficult results this season as the Indians have experienced an immense downward spiral while the Reds sit atop the standings as one of baseball's elite. In his latest, Jeff Ellis provides an in-depth look at both teams, using previous Baseball America rankings, to show just how much better the Reds really are.

Second Thoughts: Game #131 - A's 12, Indians 7
Can it get any worse than this? On a day when the Indians finally seemed to discover their offensive stroke, Justin Masterson struggled mightily and the team dropped its 14th game in 15 tries. For the month of August, the Tribe has now gone 5-23. It certainly looks bleak, and Jason Ruggiero provides more detail on this as he shares his thoughts on yesterday's game.

Around The Farm: August 30, 2012
A great outing from Jordan Cooper, a deep ball from Jorge Martinez and Jake Lowery, and a four-hit night from Bryson Myles. All of those performances were impressive, but they all fell short of a Carolina Mudcat infielder. Join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm, where there is still hope and winning (unlike in Cleveland).

Sever’s clutch stroke sends Scrappers soaring to victory
For Joe Sever, it was about more than just getting a big hit in the eighth inning with his team down a run. It was about pride. Just one batter earlier, the Scrappers best hitter Joey Wendle was intentionally walked with first base open to load the bases for Sever. That made it personal.

Second Thoughts: Game #130 A's 8, Indians 4
Ugh oh. The Tribe is on another losing streak as they lost their fourth game in a row to the Athletics last night 8-4. That is now 13 of 14 games they have lost and an astounding 26 of 31 games. These are the kind of late season meltdowns that get people fired. Nonetheless, Adam McGavin watched the game last night and shares his thoughts on what transpired and more.

Around the Farm: August 29, 2012
The organization began their final week of the season with some of the same ole', same ole' rolling out big games. Jose Ramirez had another ho-hum, three hit performance, and Jordan Smith had another two hits. A couple of starters stole the show though, each going 7 1/3 innings, and giving up a total of three earned runs. Who was it? Find out after the jump....

The Mudcats were officially eliminated from playoff contention this past week, but that was all just a formality. Now, the only thing left to do is wait and see who's taking off for the greener pastures of Ohio, and Akron. There were few big weeks here in Carolina, but there WERE a few. Just not enough to make much difference. Let's get fishing...after the jump...
