Trend Spotting: The value of Stubbs and a dilemma at third
The IBI's Michael Hattery often finds himself spending the majority of his time trying to pick holes in the Indians roster that could eventually be their downfall or equalizing force. Attempting to find players who are so far outplaying their capability that regression both as a player and as a team is inevitable. This is not to say he is not thoroughly enjoying every moment of Tribe baseball but merely that he is hesitant to heap unfair expectations on this exciting and altogether exuberant team. In this week's Trend Spotting feature he touches on the play of Drew Stubbs and some concerns at third base.

Ladies and gentlemen, something special is brewing in Cleveland. With each dramatic win, the Indians are giving fans more of a reason to believe.

The IBI's Jake Dungan provides his second thoughts on a thrilling 6-3 walkoff Indians win.

Around The Farm:  May 17, 2013
It was a full slate of action on Friday night as all of the Indians affiliates were back in action. Ezequiel Carrera chipped in with a good all-around showing in Columbus, Tyler Naquin was an on-base machine in Carolina, Charlie Valerio continued his good season to date and more. The IBI's Arthur Kinney takes us around the farm...

Roberts and strong hitting lead Aeros to win
Brett Myers was the headline, but it was a combined effort from pitcher Will Roberts and several major hits from the Aeros lineup that led to an Aeros 4-1 victory over the Erie SeaWolves Friday night at Canal Park. The win snapped their three game losing streak to successfully begin a seven-game homestand.

Brach pitches Clippers to 6-3 win
The Columbus Clippers got a big win on Friday night, thanks to a dominant performance from Clippers starter Brett Brach and some early offense. Brach pitched 7.1 nearly flawless innings for Columbus. He allowed only one run, two walks, and six hits on the evening, and had Chiefs hitters guessing all night long.

Latimore is settling in well with Indians organization
Change is inevitable in the game of professional baseball, and for Double-A Akron outfielder Quincy Latimore, the changes started from the bottom – literally. Latimore, who was formerly a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, was required to wear his pants down over his socks before he joined the Cleveland Indians’ farm system. Now, he’s done away with the high socks and joined a new team.

Orbiting Cleveland: Getting a read on Lonnie Chisenhall
On Monday, the Cleveland Indians sent third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall down to Triple-A Columbus. The move came across as somewhat surprising, but should it have been? Chisenhall has struggled mightily so far in his Major League career, so maybe we should have all seen it coming. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he looks back at Chisenhall and his demotion in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

2013 Lake Erie Crushers team preview
The Crushers are ready to start the regular season after two weeks of spring training. They will be taking on the Gateway Grizzlies in the home opener tonight, and will be doing so with an almost entirely different roster. Just as with any offseason in the Frontier League, the Crushers’ roster faced a lot of turnover as only seven of the ten players in camp from last season made the final roster. The IBI's Kyle Ferrara previews the 2013 version of the Lake Erie Crushers...

Call to the Bullpen 1.6
Is it time to start believing in this Indians team or should we wait to see whether or not this is just another optical illusion as we've seen at the start of the last two seasons? Was sending Lonnie Chisenhall and Nick Hagadone to AAA Columbus the right move? Is Trevor Bauer close to a permanent big league call-up? Will Brett Myers have any significant impact when he returns from injury? All this and more will be answered in this week's episode.

Crushers are ready, excited to kick off the season
Manager Jeff Isom and his 24 Lake Erie Crushers players will drive up to All Pro Freight Stadium in Avon Friday, just like they have for the past two weeks. They will loosen their arms, stretch and listen to music. Just like they have for the past two weeks. But unlike the past two weeks, the team will take the field at 7:05 in front of a packed house on fireworks night to welcome baseball back to the community.

Second Thoughts: An entirely droll off day
Setting aside a few torturous offensive performances at the beginning of the week including both parts of the doubleheader against the Yankees as well as the first game in Philadelphia, the Indians have been absolute must-watch television. With the Indians reaching the quarter pole tonight, it is time to reflect back on what the Indians have shown this season compared to the fool's gold from last season. The IBI's Michael Hattery shares his second thoughts on an Indians off day...

Around The Farm: May 16, 2013
Wednesday night, Jim Piascik complained about the lack of pitching throughout the minor league system. The pitchers in Columbus used that as fuel Thursday night, turning in a dominant collective appearance as they led the Clippers to victory. Okay, while using it as fuel is unlikely, the dominant pitching did happen. That effort was not enough to take the top spot, however, as a few top prospects in Carolina continued their push to get promoted quicker than anyone expected. Find out who these top prospects are and everything else that happened in the minors last night and go Around The Farm.

Battaglia's game winning hit snaps Mudcats nine game home losing streak
The Carolina Mudcats may have been down late in the bottom of the ninth, but they were not ready to roll over and extend their losing streak just yet. With Naquin on third and Lindor standing on second, backup catcher Ryan Battaglia singled to shallow left field and both Naquin and Lindor were waved around to score to give Carolina the 5-4 win.

Finally healthy, Haley looks to make it as a reliever
A sports hernia is an often-misdiagnosed tearing of the oblique abdominal muscles. At least that is what the good people at sportshernia.com tell me. Akron Aeros right-hander Trey Haley managed to pitch through the pain of a misdiagnosed sport hernia over parts of the previous three seasons -- in particular last season. When he was shut down for surgery in early June, he owned a 1.26 ERA in 14.1 innings. After finding a way to perform with great amounts of pain, Haley told Jim Piascik that he is happy to be in Akron and is just looking to be consistent in 2013.
