Optimistic offense at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians added David Murphy to their offense, and they subtracted Drew Stubbs, but past those moves, the Indians' offensive line-up of 2014 will look a lot like the offense of 2013. Is there an opportunity for this offense to improve, or did it plateau last year thanks to the potential decline years of Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher? Join Jim Pete as he throws out an optimistic look at the Indians offense next season.

IBI Power Poll: What would YOU do if you were the GM?
The Cleveland Indians have signed David Murphy, an underrated and to some, and underwhelming free agent this offseason, and haven't really done much of anything else to compensate their free agent losses. If you were able to take the keys from Chris Antonetti and drive the Indians ship, what would you do? Join Jim Pete in his less than perfect attempt to create a poll for you to do just that.

Trading Justin Masterson at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The rumors are circulating that the Cleveland Indians are entertaining offers for their ace, Justin Masterson. Of course, during the Winter Meetings, rumors and fact are often mixed together so much in this era of Twitter and Facebook, that it's hard to know what's true, and what's not. Join Jim Pete to find out what it will take for the Indians to deal their ace, or sign him long term so he remains at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

Plenty of movement at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians haven't joined the insane signing frenzy that has swept across Major League Baseball's landscape over the past several weeks, but don't let the quiet facade fool you. The Indians are making moves that fit their team, their budget and their chemistry, and they aren't quite done yet. Join Jim Pete as he decorates the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario with the moves the Indians have made so far, and how far they will go before the Indians begin their quest for a World Series in 2014.

Is there a closer at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario?
The Cleveland Indians have a substantial hole at the back-end of their bullpen, thanks to the non-tendering of Chris Perez, and the faltering of Vinnie Pestano in 2013. With Joe Smith signing with the Angels, the Indians have to fill three spots in their pen, and in key spots. Jim Pete finds himself at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario for a special edition, looking at past closer tendencies, and how it could effect the Indians in 2014.

IBI Power Poll: Who will be the Indians next closer?
The Cleveland Indians have many questions heading into the 2014 season, but have begun to answer those questions with the signing of David Murphy for the outfield. With their major hole apparently filled, the Indians will likely move to the bullpen to help fill the holes created by Chris Perez leaving, and Vinnie Pestano struggling. Join Jim Pete with this week's power, wondering who the next closer will be.

David Murphy joins the party at the Corner of Carnegie & Ontario
The Cleveland Indians served a bit of notice for the direction of their team in 2014 by signing former Boston and Texas outfielder David Murphy. The move seems minor in nature, but thanks to the position it fills, it should begin the domino process for this hot stove season. Join Jim Pete as he takes a close look at the Indians' acquisition, and what it could mean for the lineup in 2014.

Going for broke at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians have a model that they've followed since John Hart left the Indians in 2001. This model has brought the club four 90-win seasons, but have failed to get the Indians to the World Series. Can this team take the next step, or will the follow the path of their predecessors, who failed to make the final moves to win the ultimate Prize. Join Jim Pete with his weekly stroll around the Corner of Carnegie...

IBI Power Poll: Which player makes the most impact in 2014?
The Cleveland Indians have a lot of decisions to make this offseason, but with their current crop of free agents still making up their minds, it's hard to predict where the Indians will go for free agent or trade help. While we are waiting, let's take a look at some potential "newcomers" within the system. In this week's Power Poll, which potential rookie or potential minor leaguer will have the most impact with the Indians in 2014?

Terry Francona has reached out to an old friend in Tim Hudson, and the ball is rolling at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario. Join Jim Pete as he weaves through it all...
