Second Thoughts Game #20: Rain out edition
Will the Indians ever play baseball again?

Orbiting Cleveland: Gauging the 25-man roster
The Indians' record sits at 8-11, and the team has still been unable to get on a consistent roll. The starting pitching staff has been up-and-down, and the team's offense has unfortunately been maddeningly inconsistent. Could it be possible that the team's 25-man roster needs some tweaking? And are there any tweaks that could actually lead to an improved team? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he ponders that thought in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts: The Dark Cloud Over Carlos Carrasco
After taking a line drive off his elbow in a start last night for Columbus, Carlos Carrasco appears to have established a rather morbid method for evading the suspensions Major League Baseball tries to impose upon him. At press time, the extent of Carrasco’s latest injury remained unknown, but if initial reports are any indication, another prolonged stint on the disabled list could be in the cards. If so, it’s just the latest chapter it what has become an increasingly bizarre pro career for the 26 year-old right-hander from Venezuela. Join Andrew Clayman as he gives his off-day Second Thoughts about Carrasco.

Around The Farm: April 25, 2013
It's always good to see your first round picks leading the way down on the farm. Tyler Naquin and Francisco Lindor played pivotal roles in leading the Carolina Mudcats Thursday, flashing the potential that makes them both top prospects in the organization. You never want to see players hurt, however, and Cleveland saw two of their better pitchers injured in Columbus. To help make sense of all that went on, join Andrew Zajac, as he goes Around The Farm...

Carrasco Goes Down as Clippers Grab 4-1 Victory
On a night with a somber tune, the Clippers secured their second win of the series in Scranton, beating the RailRiders 4-1. The big news from the night ended up being bad news for not only the Clippers, but the Indians organization as a whole. In the bottom of the fifth Carlos Carrasco took a line drive up the middle off of his arm and left the game immediately. Carrasco was, apparently, in a great deal of pain as he made his way to the hospital. As the injury is yet to be confirmed, the fear is that Carrasco could be out for quite a while with a somewhat serious arm issue.
