How should the Indians handle him moving forward? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he chimes in on the subject in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts: Playoff outlook on a positive Thursday
The Minnesota series and really the last week and a half have been troubling even if you are a glass half full guy.

Paulino has continued to turn things around following his rough start and he sustained that constant progress Thursday night. To read about Paulino and everything else you need to know about the night in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik as he goes Around The Farm.
