Second Thoughts Game #70: Royals 3, Indians 4
At times, it felt like the Indians were doing everything in their power to giftwrap a win for Kansas City on Tuesday night thanks to wild pitches, errors and a wild ninth inning. The Indians came away with a 4-3 win, a much needed win and one that was not easy for the hometown boys. The IBI's Jake Dungan shares his second thoughts on the game...

Indians comeback late to stun Royals 4-3
Things did not look good early at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario, but just as they have been accustomed to all season long at Progressive Field, the Tribe would fight back.

Join the IBI's Jim Berdysz as he recaps all the action from the Tribe's thrilling win.

Crushers hold on for 4-3 win
The Crushers’ Tuesday night opponent was Normal. The first at-bat in the top of the ninth was anything but. CornBelters shortstop Patrick McKenna hit a routine fly ball to straight-away center, but Kevin Berard couldn’t find it and threw his arms up in disbelief as it landed well behind him, all the way back at the warning track. Despite this bizarre happening, the Crushers were able to hold on to win 4-3, as Dale Dickerson struck out the final two batters to earn his third save.

2013 MLB Draft: Post-draft Q&A with John Mirabelli Part 1
We are already almost two weeks removed from the draft and with that lots of new players are coming into the organization and a few are already making their professional debuts this week. Tony had a chance over the weekend to sit down at length with Indians Director of Scouting John Mirabelli and talk about the Indians draft. Mirabelli discussed the strength of the draft and trends we saw in it this year, the decision-making process, why he liked Clint Frazier so much, and lots more. Part 2 will post later in the week.

Kluber proving he belongs in the big leagues
That was the general consensus of many Indians fans shortly after Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers touched up Corey Kluber at Comerica Park on May 10th was that he was a short term option for the rotation and would soon go back to Columbus. Fast forward a month later and now Kluber has anchored himself in pretty well into the Indians rotation and looks to have solidified himself as a true major league starting option for the Indians.

Launching off with the Aeros: 6/11/13 – 6/17/13
The Akron Aeros found success despite being away from Canal Park all week, going 3-2 during their road trip to New Hampshire and Portland and moving back to .500 on the season. The offense put up some remarkable power and discipline as it carried the team, though the pitching for its part did not slouch. To read about all the action for the Aeros and the outfielder that just may be coming into his own, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

The Crushers Notebook: 6/11/13 to 6/17/2013
It was another roller coaster of a week for Lake Erie with flashes of greatness followed quickly behind by struggles as the Crushers went 2-4 over the stretch. It's no secret now, the Crushers' pitching has been the biggest disappointment to the team all season long. With several moves made by the organization shipping pitchers out and bringing new guys in, the team is at a loss. Matt Lofgren chips in with his notebook on the week that was for the Crushers.

Second Thoughts Game #69: Royals 2, Indians 1
After a well-documented brutal 20-game stretch, the Indians had seemingly gotten themselves back on the right track, winning four out of their last five (and it could have just as easily been all five). They began a set against a surging Royals team Monday night, backed by a recently-freed Carlos Carrasco. He turned in one of the best starts of his young career, but the team was lacking in all other facets and another brutal loss was suffered.

Smoke Signals: Episode 6.11
Smoke Signals is back on the cyberwaves tonight from 10:00pm – 11:00pm EST. In tonight's episode, Tony and Jim talk about how the Indians have rebounded from a rough stretch to in late May and June to play much better over the past week, but still appear to be a step behind the competition. They will talk about Carlos Carrasco and Corey Kluber's brilliance over the last two games, wonder when Lonnie Chisenhall might be called up (or talk about his callup if it happens before the game), and look into the future with the Indians schedule and what moves they make around the deadline to shore up their team to help them be more consistent so they can compete for a playoff spot.

PawSox blank Clippers 4-0
The Clippers lead the International League in runners left on base and they definitely demonstrated that Monday as they were shutout by the Pawtucket Red Sox in a 4-0 affair at Huntington Park. The Pawtucket pitching silenced the Clipper bats all night long in a masterful three-hit performance.

Around the Farm: June 17, 2013
There are days when this job is fun, and there are days when you just want to call it a night. Tonight, unfortunately, it was the latter, as the only two Indians' affiliates that were playing combined for eight total hits, and were both shut-out. There really was no joy in Mudville tonight, but there was one multi-hit performance, and an interesting start of note for a potential high upside lefty. Join Jim Pete for Monday Night's ATF.
