The case for trading Asdrubal Cabrera
After losing the first two games of a four game series in spectacular fashion to the Tigers, and then ultimately losing three of the four games in the series, Indians fans at least subconsciously recognized what they already suspected: this year’s Cleveland Indians are not at the same level as the Tigers and will be hardpressed to win the AL Central. The Indians need pitching, and one of the ways they may try to get it is by trading Asdrubal Cabrera in some sort of package.

Second Thoughts Game #89: Tigers 4, Indians 2
After dropping the first two games of this series to the Tigers in hopeless fashion, the Indians still had a chance to split the four-game wraparound on Monday. The offense managed just two runs, but were well within position to win it throughout, thanks to mostly quality pitching. Down the stretch, it was a series of questionable coaching decisions that helped lead to a brutal loss. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his "second thoughts" on the tough loss for the Tribe.

AZL Padres clobber lackluster AZL Tribe, 11-3
The AZL Indians were flat from the first pitch to the last Monday night, as the visiting AZL Padres took a dominating 11-3 victory. It could have been the 100+ degree heat or the fact that they have played six games in as many days, but the usually energetic and loose AZL Indians were shells of their normal selves. They were out hit 18 to four on the evening and never managed to muster up any sort of fight.

The IBI's Stephanie Metzger talked with him recently and provides the details in her latest.

If you take away the third, fourth and fifth innings, the Indians pitching staff threw great in Sunday’s game; however, three awful relief innings by AZL Indians relief pitcher Anthony Vizcaya spelled “doom” for the Tribe, as they got pummeled by the AZL Rangers 8-2.
