Second Thoughts Game #52: Indians 2, White Sox 6

When the Indians lost to the White Sox 6-2 on the Memorial Day ballgame in U.S. Cellular Field, it comes as something of a shock that the game was substantially closer than it appeared. Over the course of the game, Cleveland had twelve baserunners (8 hits, 3 walks, 1 RoE), whereas Chicago, despite scoring four more runs, had only 11 (9 H, 1 BB, 1 RoE). The mitigating factor in all...

Second Thoughts Game #51: Indians 2, Orioles 4

On Sunday, Josh Beckett managed to turn the clock back a few years as he threw Major League Baseball's first no-hitter of the season for the Dodgers. Trevor Bauer also had a glimpse back in time, but the memory wasn't so pleasant as he tossed over 100 pitches in only four and a third innings. Hopefully this is just a minor setback and not regression to his 2013 form...

Adams' return to form has been impressive

All professional players have injury setbacks, but no position is defined by injuries more than the pitcher.

Over the 2010 and 2011 seasons, Adams threw 243 strikeouts in 248 innings in Single-A and Double-A. Then the injury came, threatening to make him another...

Errors, cold bats plague Clippers, swept by Bulls

COLUMBUS, OH – It takes a lot to shake a team – or a player – out of a slump. The most important ingredients in doing so are solid defense and consistent hitting. To get anywhere, there must be at least one of those two. The Columbus Clippers (22-26) are a team in a slump, and the absence of both those traits led to a 5-1 loss against the Durham Bulls (30-21) on Sunday evening...

Second Thoughts Game #50: Cleveland 9, Baltimore 0

Ubaldo Jimenez took the mound on Saturday against Cleveland, his former team that did not deign to resign him. In the world of narratives, this payback game would see Ubaldo show his vintage late 2013 form and show Cleveland just the sort of ace Cleveland missed out on. Instead, Jimenez walked five and departed after recording twelve outs. Romanticism loses again, and the dominant...
