Orbiting Cleveland: Fixing the bullpen
The Indians have had a bit of an underwhelming week so far as the team was fresh off a four-game sweep over the White Sox but scuffled to a 1-2 record against the Royals.

Are there any ways that the Tribe can improve the bullpen in order to stay in contention? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he ponders that thought in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

And that is what happened to the Indians as they fell 10-7 to the Royals. The IBI's Andrew Clayman shares his "second thoughts" on the ugly finish for the Indians.

Around The Farm: July 4, 2013
A very happy Fourth of July to you! We at IBI hope you had a great holiday and enjoyed a little time off.
