Tribe Happenings: Concerns with Pestano are growing
The Indians and their fans have a growing concern about the lack of command and vellocity from top flight setup man Vinnie Pestano. Those problems came to the surface on Saturday when he was very ineffective in a blown save, and Tony touches on his issues. 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

Second Thoughts Game #48: Indians 4, Red Sox 7
Saturday was just one of those days. On yet another rainy day in historical Fenway Park, the Indians fell late and lost their second game of the four-game series to the Red Sox, 7-4.

The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts on a tough loss for the Indians...

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.

Red Sox pummel Indians 8-1
Justin Masterson’s 19-inning scoreless streak came to a close as the Cleveland Indians fell to the Boston Red Sox 8-1 on Friday evening. Not much went right for the Indians in the contest as the offense and pitching performances were both inconsistent, and the team could only muster one run. Join the IBI's Stephanie Metzger as she recaps the contest and looks back at all the action after the jump...

Orbiting Cleveland: Extending Michael Brantley
Few Cleveland Indians players have been as consistent as Michael Brantley this season as the left-landed hitter has provided quality offense and defense in almost every game he's played. With his value now at an all-time high, should the Indians now be exploring a contract extension? Also, how much would the Indians have to spend to extend Brantley? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he tackles both these questions in the weekly IBI staple, Orbiting Cleveland.

Urshela is focused on baseball and improving every day
When asked if he has any hobbies outside of baseball, Akron Aeros third baseman Giovanny Urshela said no. The focus is all on baseball for Urshela. The 21-year-old infielder is swinging the bat well, hitting .275 in his first 39 games at the Double-A level, though his on-base percentage is lagging behind. Urshela has a plan to improve that, though, as he looks to improve himself as a ballplayer every day.

Second Thoughts Game #46: Indians 12, Red Sox 3
While the central storyline of this game was unavoidably the return of Terry Francona to Fenway, the Indians’ hammering of the Red Sox by a score of 12-3 should not be relegated to footnote status. This was a critical bounce back after a two-game stumble against Detroit, and it sets a very nice tone for a tough six-game holiday weekend road trip. The IBI's Andrew Clayman shares his second thoughts on the win...
