Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Pronkified, one last time...
Pronk is heading to an all-to-familiar place...the DL, and it's likely his last trip there as a member of the Cleveland Indians. Which Pronk will you remember? Is it the pre-30 Pronk that was sure to destroy the Indians' home run record, or was it the post 30 pronk that spent most of his day iced up? Whichever side of the coin you land on, it's not hard to forget the many big moments. With that said, it's clearly time for Pronk to say goodbye to the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

Smoke Signals 8/14: West coast edition
Smoke Signals is back on the cyberwaves tonight from 10:00pm – 11:00pm EST. This week Tony and Jim will discuss the recent dismissal of pitching coach Scott Radinsky, whether it was the right move or not, what other changes could be coming, and whether Ruben Niebla is a potential long term fit. They will also discuss yet another Hafner injury and what it means for his future as an Indian, the end of the recent 11-game losing streak, the goals for the remainder of the season, and they will also dive into some minor league discussion on some of the players at High-A Carolina.

Second Thoughts: Game #116 - Indians 6, Angels 2
The Indians bounced back from their embarrassing home loss on Sunday with one of their better played games of the last month on Monday night in a 6-2 win over the Angels in Anaheim. For whatever reason, the Angels have brought out the best in the Indians this year as they are now 5-2 against the Halos on the season. Adam McGavin shares his second thoughts on the game.

Around the Farm: August 13, 2012
The Indians system was full of off nights and rainouts, but the lower minors had a chance to shine, as the Carolina Mudcats and the AZLIndians showcased several of the Indians top prospects doing their thing. Giovanny Urshela continued his hit streak, while Dwight Childs rolled out three hits of his own. Dorssys Paulino had another four-hit game, while the guy at the top slot also made his mark as a future shortstop in the system. Find out who, after the jump...

Childs drives Mudcats to victory, 9-5
The Carolina Mudcats (25-24), behind a huge night from catcher Dwight Childs, beat the Frederick Keys (23-25) 9-5 on Monday night to open a three game series. Righty Michael Goodnight took the mound for the Mudcats and struggled to find his command as he walked five batters in just four and one third innings of work.

The 2012 Transaction Rundown:  August 4-10
Whew! What a week! At one point the Indians had four players designated for assignment (is that some sort of Major League record?). The Clippers roster ended the week standing at 22 (a few more callups sans countermove and we could be looking at the Grand Canyon of roster holes here).

Second Thoughts: Game #115 - Red Sox 14, Indians 1
The Indians finished off their seven game homestand on Sunday the way it started....with a loss. An ugly one at that as they lost 14-1 to the Red Sox. The Indians were able to end their 11-game slide during their homestand, but finished 3-4 during the short stay at home, and now go on the road where they have lost nine straight and head out West to play the Angles, A's and Mariners over the next ten days. Kevin Dean provides his second thoughts on yesterday's ugly loss...

Lowery, Captains fly by Hawks, 10-6
Jake Lowery led the Lake County Captains over the South Bend Silver Hawks as he hit his sixth home run of the season to carry the Captains to a 10-6 victory on Sunday. Elvis Araujo (6-9, 5.21) received the win for the Captains as he countered South Bend’s 6’8” lefty Andrew Barbosa (2-3, 3.89).

Around the Farm: August 12, 2012
Tony Wolters continues to have the type of season post-April that the Indians were hoping that he'd have, hitting .298, which is tops for the Mudcats over that stretch. Lake County had about 200 players roll out multi-hit games on Sunday, in a who's who of the most talented team in the system. At the top of ATF is a guy I've been high on all season...and the bandwagon is about to fill up...after the jump...
