Tribe Happenings: Saying goodbye to Ubaldo
Ubaldo Jimenez is expected to decline the qualifying offer that the Indians extended to him this week, and thus will have declined a contract with the Indians for 2014 not once, but twice. The IBI's Tony Lastoria talks about why it is time to move on from Jimenez and how his market may be shaping up. He also talks about why Scott Kazmir was not extended a qualifying offer, runs through some early rumors, explains why Jesus Aguilar has played third base of late, and more.

The Ultimate Indians Draft: Rounds 51-41

Possible free agent options that can help the Indians bullpen
Entering 2013, the Indians had as stable a backend of the bullpen with Joe Smith, Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez. Fast forward to the end of the season, and suddenly it might be the most unstable position on the team since Smith is a free agent, Perez was released, and Pestano is a complete unknown after a tough 2013 because of injury and performance issues. The IBI's Andy Nichols takes a look at the free agent relievers and how they might fit with the Indians this offseason and fill a need for the team.
