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.

Second Thoughts Game #148: Indians 8, White Sox 1
Another game on Chicago’s Southside, and another win for your Cleveland Indians. After a scoreless tie between both club’s through three innings, the Tribe offense unleashed two homers for a five run fourth to give them the lead they would never surrender. Indians bats roughed up White Sox right-hander Andre Rienzo for five runs on seven hits in just four innings. Tribe starter Ubaldo Jimenez took a shutout in the ninth inning, and pulled away with his best start as a member of the Indians.

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. That was the total combined attendance for the entire three-game series. The IBI's Jim Berdysz takes a deep look into the attendance issue for the Indians and tries to tackle the reason behind why people continue to stay away even with the team in the thick of the playoff race.

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. The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his thoughts on the Indians' 10th straight win over Chicago.

Orbiting Cleveland: An unconventional team
Fresh off a 14-3 win over the Chicago White Sox, going into play on Friday the Cleveland Indians remain 1.5 games back in the American League Wild Card race. Many seem to keep waiting for the Indians to fall off, yet that time has not come as the Tribe continues to prove the naysayers wrong. It will take a lot of luck and some good play for the Indians to clinch a playoff berth in these final two weeks. Can the team accomplish that feat? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he opines on the topic in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

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. The IBI's Michael Hattery shares his second thoughts on the game as the Indians keep pace in a crazy wildcard race.

Trend Spotting: Brantley, RBI production and a rambling wreck
When an offense is struggling, the blame is spread quickly and with relative ease usually beginning with expected cornerstones and then the manager. This course inevitably leads to a discussion about lineup optimization and if the fan base is particularly blood thirsty, issues with the hitting coach. The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a deep look into the struggles of the lineup and offers up some changes which may help and also looks into the clutch factor that Michael Brantley possesses.

A Royal Pain at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Indians may be running into a buzz saw in the form of the Kansas City Royals, who has a nice mix of solid starting pitching, a trending offense and a tough-as-nails bullpen. While many Tribe fans point to the Indians potentially catching playoff lightning in a bottle, it's the Royals who seem to be coming together at the right time. All is not lost though, as the eternal optimist, Jim Pete, takes a look through Royal blue sunglasses from his perch at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario.
