IBI Inbox: Don't give up on the Tribe just yet
Thanks to a six game losing streak the Indians went from within striking distance of the AL Central lead and leading the AL wildcard race to a longshot in the division and four games out in the wildcard race. But Tony says it is not time to jump ship. He answers that question plus others about Yan Gomes' future as a backstop in Cleveland, extensions for players, lefty relief options, and much more in his latest IBI Inbox.

Notes From the Wigwam: Indians fall in divisional race
The Indians have been a streaky team all season, but they unfortunately chose the wrong time to go on a losing streak as a 1-6 week left them seven games behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. In addition to the numerous losses, the week was magnified by the loss of right-hander Corey Kluber to the disabled list. Yep, it was unfortunately one of those weeks for the Indians that we all would like to soon forget. Before moving forward though, let's take one last look at the week that was and join the IBI's Steve Orbanek for his weekly notebook, Notes From the Wigwam.

Second Thoughts Game #118: Indians 6, Angels 5
Having lost six straight games and severely jeopardizing their playoff chances, the Indians desperately needed a win before embarking on their longest stretch of games away from Cleveland left. They turned to their best pitcher to halt the slide, but he struggled and things looked daunting late in the game until the offense exploded and the bullpen did their job to notch a very important 6-5 win in the series and homestand finale. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his second thoughts....

Scrappers fall further off playoff pace with loss to Renegades
With the Mahoning Valley Scrappers winning the first two games of a three game set with the Hudson Valley Renegades, the Scrappers could at least keep a little hope of a playoff berth heading into the All-Star Game. That hope dropped a bit on Sunday, as Mahoning Valley squandered a late lead and eventually fell to Hudson Valley 6-5.

Pestano working on getting more extension in Columbus
After a shaky start to the season the Indians and Vinnie Pestano are relying on a trip to Triple-A Columbus to bring him back to his former glory as a key member in the Bullpen Mafia. A stint on the disabled list in May and a disappointing July made Pestano the odd man out in a recent bullpen shuffle, and the IBI's Adrienne Robbins recently talked to him to get the low down on what he is working on in Columbus.

Declining plate discipline is sinking Cabrera in 2013
The question of why Asdrubal Cabrera is still hitting cleanup is a hot one amongst Cleveland fans. Batting in that spot would have been a perfectly good one two years ago when the shortstop hit 25 home runs, or even last year when Cabrera's home runs dipped to 16 but his wRC+ stayed solid at 113. This year, however, Cabrera looks more like a replacement-level player than an All-Star. What happened, you ask? As Jim Piascik explains, Cabrera's plate discipline has just disappeared.

Second Thoughts Game #117: Angels 7, Indians 2
And they're free...free fallin'. Two runs and a season-high four errors would be all the struggling Tribe put across Saturday against Los Angeles, as they fell to their sixth straight loss, 7-2. With the offense in a deep freeze they can ill afford to play sloppy on defense, and that is exactly what happened Saturday night. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts...

Indians boot their way to sixth straight loss
C.J. Wilson struggled through five and one-third innings, but Cleveland's sloppy defense and continually-quiet bats doomed the home team, as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim beat the Indians 7-2 Saturday night. The Indians are reeling and they put forth one of their sloppiest games yet with four errors, wild pitches, and an continued lack of ability to hit in the clutch.
