Aeros win two against Fighting Phils

Trend Spotting: Mark Reynolds,improved pitching and defense
In the second week of May one thing is clear, Mark Reynolds was one of the five best acquisitions in baseball this past offseason. Just based on WAR value to date, Reynolds’ 1.3 wins would be worth $6.3 million dollars. More importantly, Reynolds has been one of the best players in baseball through the first month which raises a few questions that should be addressed: how long will this rate of production continue, should the Indians extend him, at what cost, and how will his line look at the end of the season? The IBI's Michael Hattery touches on that as well as a few other topics!

Orbiting Cleveland: Is this rotation too good to be true?
The Indians have gone 10-1 in their last 11 games and are now in the thick of the American League Central race.

Second Thoughts Game #32: Indians 9, A’s 2
It’s been nearly four years since Scott Kazmir last struck out 10 batters in a game. To put that in context, a teenager who was just starting college back then—August 26, 2009, to be exact—could conceivably be preparing for his graduation this weekend. That’s an awful lot of space between two bookends. Andrew Clayman takes a look at Kazmir's resurgence along with whether it is time to jump on board the bandwagon in today's Second Thoughts.

Bad call or not, instant replay is here to stay
The IBI's James Keene never wanted instant replay in baseball. When first proposed he felt it would merely cause the game to last longer and possibly not solve anything and the game on Wednesday is what he expected. When MLB announced they were implementing instant replay in 2008 he was thankful they were only using replay for home run calls. And while they umpire crew blew the replay review on Wednesday night, it is here to stay.
