Orbiting Cleveland: The rotation has a huge hole
In just over a month, pitchers and catchers will report to Spring Training, but it appears as if the Cleveland Indians still have a big hole to fill. While four members of the starting rotation are decided, the Tribe still has no idea who will fill the fifth role. Also, the internal options seem to be a tad underwhelming. Could one of them fill the spot? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he discusses in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Positive resolutions at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The New Year is upon us here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, and it's time to take a look at some 2014 resolutions.

Get Lucky: The 2013 Cleveland Indians year-in-review
What Cleveland fan is not happy about the way 2013 turned out? Going from a 68-win mess in 2012 to a playoff-bound 92-win team in 2013 was nothing short of amazing. A series of great moves in the offseason spurred the turnaround, but with any change that big, a little luck comes into play. Last year, Jim Piascik used Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon to recap 2012. This year, he's went modern with Rolling Stone's #1 single of the year, Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."

Winter Ball Notebook: Is the Santana third base experiment over?
The DWL playoffs began this past week, and to the surprise of many, the Indians' Carlos Santana was a participant. Santana had been manning the hot corner for Leones del Escogido this winter, but it now appears as if that has changed. Midway through the first playoff game, Santana was moved from third base to first base, and he has remained there ever since. Could it be that the Carlos Santana third base experiment is coming to an end? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he touches on that and more in the latest edition of the Winter Ball Notebook.
