Second Thoughts Game #47: Tigers 10, Indians 11
A walk-off balk is one of the rarest occasions in baseball. From some cursory research, it appears this has only happened about 15 times in HISTORY. While the way the game was won on Wednesday is certainly the most unbelievable event that occurred, the game featured three separate comebacks by the Indians and is without a doubt the biggest (and most improbable) win of the year. The IBI's Michael Goodman provides his "second thoughts" on the amazing win...

Around the Farm: May 21, 2014
Things were not as crazy down on the farm Wednesday as they were at Progressive Field, but there were still plenty of interesting things goings on.

He was joined by Tyler Naquin continuing his hot streak, Clayton Cook's first game in 25 months, and much more. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down and takes you Around the Farm.

Asdrubal Cabrera: Above-average players & contract extensions
There may be no player on the Cleveland Indians that draws the same sustained levels of disdain from the fanbase as Asdrubal Cabrera. In the big picture, however, the IBI's John Grimm asserts that Cabrera's diverse offensive portfolio and improved defense is a net positive for Cleveland, and he reflects on how Cabrera's widely-panned contract, counter-intuitively, demonstrates the effectiveness of contract extensions as a team-building strategy.

Second Thoughts Game #46: Tigers 2, Indians 6
The Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night by a score of 6-2.

Murata, Akron outlast Altoona 1-0 in pitcher's duel
Akron right fielder Jordan Smith had the RubberDucks only extra-base hit when he doubled in the top of the fifth inning. This would prove to be vital, as a Tyler Naquin RBI single followed one batter later, and was the difference in Akron’s 1-0 victory in Altoona. The win evened the series at a game apiece with two more left to be played.
