Second Thoughts: Game #21 - Indians 2, White Sox 7
Well, that was ugly. Chris Sale was tough on the Indians again as he and the rest of the White Sox' staff held the Indians to 2 runs, their 8th straight game scoring 4 runs or less as well as 16 of 21 games. On top of that, Ubaldo Jimenez was a train wreck and the defense was brutal. All of that is a recipe for a bad loss, which Charlie Adams' gives his "second thoughts" on.

Inside the Numbers: Platoons Galore?
The Indians are known to have a left-leaning lineup, but how much can this me mitigated and how much will this really hurt them? Through effective management of the hitters available to him, Manny Acta could put together a successful lineup that not only scores more runs, but also potentially "fresh" and off the DL.

A lot of people are unimpressed with the improvements the Indians made to the lineup this offseason, but Charlie Adams says that the numbers show that the Indians could have one of the better lineups in baseball this season if luck comes in the form of health and maturation.

Prospects in the wind and free agent first basemen
Many voices have shouted from their teepee’s about what the Indians should do at the not-so-hot corner.
Carlos Pena and Casey Kotchman are available and potential fits, but are both eft-handed and would exacerbate an already heavily tilted Tribe lineup. Matt LaPorta is the struggling, not-so-green prospect, but riat least he hits from the right side of the dish. It is very easy to say...
