Orbiting Cleveland: A 2007 vs. 2013 comparison part 2
There are just three days left in the regular season, which essentially means the Indians could be a mere three days away from advancing to the postseason for the first time since the 2007 season. The 2007 team was a great team but ultimately fell short of achieving its goal of winning a World Series. Could this year's team fare better? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he continues to compare this year's team to the 2007 one in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts Game #159: Indians 6, Twins 5
This team is a collection of castoffs and a collection of misfits which has provided a scrapbook full of moments. No player, no person has been indispensable, they have all been indispensable. That once again proved to be the case on Thursday night as several different players contributed on offense and several pitchers combined to shut the Twins down (before Chris Perez came in) to notch win #89 for the Indians. The IBI's Michael Hattery shares his second thoughts...

Where the aces are
The IBI's Jeff Ellis has often wondered where the top starting pitchers in baseball come from. Do they come from the draft or internationally? Do they come from college or high school? Is there any rhyme or reason to it all or is there really no such thing as a starting pitching prospect (TINSTAAPP)? He came up with some data which he believes helps answer that question and why the Indians may be a prime position for the 2014 Draft.

A tale of two moments at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario

Giambi walk-off homer sends Tribe to biggest victory of the year

With the Tribe trailing 4-3 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, pinch hitter Jason Giambi took White Sox closer Addison Reed deep for a game-winning walk-off homer to give the Indians a remarkable 5-4 win.
