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.

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...
