Around the Farm: May 26, 2013
The Indians organization certainly didn't head into Memorial Day on Monday with a positive vibe on Sunday. Every team, from Lake County to Cleveland fell into the losing column on Sunday afternoon. There were some intriguing performances though, as a couple of good starting pitching prospects had nice outings. Join Jim Pete with the pre-Memorial Day edition of ATF.

Second Thoughts Game #49: Red Sox 6, Indians 5
For eight innings, the Indians looked as though they could escape Boston with a series split. Then, the top of the ninth inning came along as did closer Chris Perez. It wasn’t the long ball that hurt Pure Rage on Sunday, but rather the strike zone. Perez just couldn’t find any of the four corners of the strike zone, blowing both the save and the game for Cleveland. The Red Sox scored four runs off the closer in the inning, in route to a devastating 6-5 loss for the Tribe.

He also discusses the overuse of Jason Giambi, how Lou Marson fits into things, the best offseason move maybe being Aviles and Gomes for Rogers, when Brett Myers will return and much more

Trend Spotting: Nick Swisher’s stability and Perez stumbles
While Nick Swisher’s ebullient smile and incessant on-field/in dugout antics have endeared him to Indians fans as fast as one would expect; Swisher’s on field performance has been somewhat underrated with the stability of production he offers. On the other hand Chris Perez has had some early struggles but his numbers and career performance show he should be in for another 30 save season. The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a look at both in his weekly "Trend Spotting" piece.
