2014 MLB Draft: My Way too early Big Board
It is several months before the college baseball season begins, but that doesn't mean people aren't already talking draft. Since the summer leagues are done and the showcase circuit is over, IBI draft guru Jeff Ellis decided to sit down and make his first draft board. Next year's draft figures to be the best pool of talent in years, and with the Indians holding at least two first round picks it could be a very important draft for them.

Second Thoughts Game #149: Indians 7, White Sox 1
Even rain couldn’t cool off a surging Indians offense, as they completed the series sweep over their division rival White Sox Sunday afternoon, 7-1. After a rain delay of four hours and 23 minutes delayed the start time of the ballgame, it took the Tribe just two hours and 39 minutes to win their fourth straight over the last place Pale Hose. More importantly, the victory marks the first time since 2008 Cleveland has won 81 games in a season, as they continue to make their way toward October. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts...

The Price was right this year
RIght-handed reliever Bryan Price entered the Indians system in July of 2009 after being dealt to the Indians from the Boston Red Sox along with Justin Masterson and Clippers teammate Nick Hagdone. He often pitched well since being acquired, but injuries have held him back. Until this year. Finally healthy an entire season, Price made huge strides and also the development of a pitch in his arsenal was all the difference for him.

Indians attendance numbers hit new lows with lack of support
A crowd of 34,494 were on hand at Progressive Field to watch the Tribe battle the Kansas City Royals this past homestand. There’s just one problem.

Second Thoughts Game #147: Indians 3, White Sox 1
In pretty much a polar opposite game of Thursday night’s slug fest by the Indians, it came down to Danny Salazar and the bullpen holding off Chicago to walk away with a narrow 3-1 victory to continue to put pressure on the wild card race as four teams, including the Tribe continue to challenge the Rays for that second wild card spot.

Second Thoughts Game #146: Indians 14, White Sox 3
Thursday night’s offensive performance was impressive especially following their disappointing efforts at home against Kansas City. It had been some time since the Indians had easily won a game in a laugher, so Thursday night's beat down of the White Sox was well welcomed.
