Welcome to Tribe Talk, where Bleacher Report's Cleveland Indians fans weigh in on the ups and downs of the club each week throughout the season.

This week, it's midseason awards time! In a slight departure from our normal Tribe Talk format, we cast our votes for the good the bad and the ugly in the first half of the Tribe's 2011 season and predict a little of what's to come as well.

I would like to thank this week's participants Dale Thomas and Jim Piascik for their contributions. This discussion is open to all, so please feel free to comment below and pitch your thoughts on the questions we're addressing this week.

Go Tribe! 

Over the weekend, we passed the 81-game halfway point of the 2011 baseball season. 

And what a half it was for the Tribe, who finished it with a .537 winning percentage and in first place in the AL Central. This means this week's Tribe Talk is all about handing out some midseason awards to our Indians.
