A three year Indians review: Shortstop
In his third part of this series, the IBI's Jeff Ellis takes a look at the shortstop position for the Indians over the past three seasons. The first two positions he looked at were first base and second base and the Indians have seen significant improvement at both, and this time he reviews the shortstop position which is the only position which has stayed consistent over the last few years for the Indians.

Sailing with the Clippers: 7/18/13 to 7/24/13
Pitching has been the name of the game for the Clippers as the second-half of their season has gotten off to a promising 4-3 start. They could easily be 7-0 as their losses came by three runs or less (two of them were by a one-run deficit). With a limited offense, the pitching staff is key and if they keep the runs down, Columbus has a shot of making a late-season push for the playoffs. The IBI's Ethan Day recaps the week that was for the Clippers...

Around The Farm: July 24, 2013
Wednesday night was a good night in the organization, and not just because the major league club won. See, Wednesday night was #WashTime, as the outfielder made his presence known in Arizona. In addition to #WashTime, the organization also had some Tyler Naquin, a little Eric Haase, and much more. To read all about the night in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm.

Granger's walk-off takes Crushers past Miners 3-2
For some reason, even after Tuesday's 17-inning marathon, the Miners hadn't had enough of their stay at All Pro Freight Stadium. Seth Granger, meanwhile, was tired of hosting them. He sent them packing with a walk-off, RBI single to left-center field. The walk-off gave the Crushers a 3-2 victory, pulling them to within a game of third place in the East, behind the very Miners team they just took two of three from.

Mysteries & making moves at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians are frustrating. Their starting rotation is good, or bad, depending on the month. The offense is good, or bad, depending on the player. The defense was supposed to be better, and is falling apart. The bullpen was supposed to be good, and is bad. Is there light at the end of the tunnel, and a quick look at some players the Indians may be looking at at the trade deadline.

On-Deck with the Captains: 7/17/13 - 7/23/13
Last week bore witness to another handful of losses for the Lake County Captains as they dropped four of six games at home.

The AZL Indians dropped a second straight game Tuesday night, falling 7-2 to the AZL Cubs at Hohokam Park. In a game that was similar in many ways to Monday night’s contest, the AZL Indians failed to come alive offensively and even when they did score runs, the bullpen was unsuccessful in holding the lead.

Second Thoughts Game #100: Indians 3, Mariners 4
The long-anticipated return of Zach McAllister to the Indians rotation is finally here and while his first start wasn’t all that great, we’ll still take it considering the circumstances. The right-hander pitched five innings allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and had to work around miscues by his defense as well as his own rustiness. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps another frustrating loss for the Tribe

Indians left stunned again in Seattle, lose 4-3
It was just last season that Tribe starter Zach McAllister led the league in unearned runs. Making his first start since June 2, the right-hander received no help defensively again Tuesday night. Three more errors and lack run support proved more than a recipe for disaster, as the Indians fell one run short to the Seattle Mariners for the second straight night, 4-3.

Around The Farm:  July 23, 2013
While Lake County may have been off and Mahoning Valley was rained out, there was still plenty of action around the Indians farm system on Tuesday night.

Join the IBI's Arthur Kinney as he recaps those performances and more as he takes you Around the Farm.
