The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a deeper look at the struggles of two of the Indians' most vital pieces in the bullpen: Joe Smith and Vinnie Pestano.

International Report: Indians continue to add talent

Second Thoughts: Lineup optimization and Yan Gomes
The Indians offense is strewn with inconsistency. It may be a challenge to pick at an offense that just dropped 10 runs in Seattle but we all know that the week preceding was an offensive struggle. The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a stab at analyzing and determining what he believes is the Indians optimum lineup, and it is much different than what Francona has been writing into the lineup card of late. He also chimes in with a request to get Yan Gomes more playing time.
