Launching Off With The Aeros: 4/16/13 – 4/22/13
The Aeros continued to stay at the bottom of the Eastern League over the past week as they lost four of seven and fell to 6-12. The youth and inexperience that makes the team exciting to watch from a prospect standpoint is the culprit for the losing, as most of the players are at the Double-A level for the first time. There were still plenty of noteworthy performances, however, especially a competition between two dueling aces. For all that and more, join Jim Piascik as he Launches Off With The Aeros.

The State of the Rotation
The Tribe has been shut out some nights and scored 19 runs the next. It may be just a team trying to find its groove as much of the new additions to the roster are adjusting to the change of scenery. However, the starting rotation, which already came into the season with several question marks, is already in a semi-critical state. The IBI's Jake Dungan takes a look at the state of the Indians rotation...

Second Thoughts Game #18: Indians 3, White Sox 2
Justin Masterson has been sensational so far this season, and while he was not on his A-game last night he still battled and worked his way through seven innings and hung around just long enough to earn the win. Asdrubal Cabrera came through with a big two-run single in the eighth inning to put the Indians up 3-2 and the Bullpen Mafia did the rest to preserve a much needed Tribe win against a division rival. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his "second thoughts" on the game...

Thunder storms the Aeros, 13-8
One thing is certain for the 2013 Akron Aeros. Every game so far has been, well, entertaining. That was little consolation for the Aeros Monday night, when they spotted the Trenton Thunder a seven-run head start, and ended up losing a high-octane shootout, 13-8, at Canal Park. The Aeros were hoping to build on the momentum of a win over Bowie on Sunday. The young Yankees prospects on the Thunder, however, had other ideas.
