Fishing for Mudcats: Tyler Naquin takes over...
The first half of the Carolina League season has turned into an observance of players rather than team. While the Muddies have several interesting prospects, none seem to be able to drive in or score enough runs to win ball games. Still, there are several intriguing players, and former top pick Tyler Naquin has been taking center stage. Go fishin' with Jim Pete as he details the Muddies week that was.

Around the Farm: June 1, 2013
The first day of June brought several interesting performances by Cleveland Indians prospects. Lonnie Chisenhall doesn't appear to be all that enthused about being back in the minors, and is trying to do something about it. Cord Phelps is another player that tasted the big leagues in 2013, but seems to be going in another direction. Join Jim Pete for Saturday's ATF to find out about Chis, Phelps, and a whole lot more.

Needing relief at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Indians have been an interesting team in 2013. Initially, the starting rotation faltered, and the offense struggled to score runs with consistency. But the bullpen was solid. Then, the offense started clicking, and so did the starters. The bullpen remained solid. Now, the starters are consistent, while the offense has scuffled here and there, and the bullpen is struggling. Join Jim Pete at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario as he looks at the bullpen...

The Indians organization certainly didn't head into Memorial Day on Monday with a positive vibe on Sunday. Every team, from Lake County to Cleveland fell into the losing column on Sunday afternoon. There were some intriguing performances though, as a couple of good starting pitching prospects had nice outings. Join Jim Pete with the pre-Memorial Day edition of ATF.

Bauer & Carrasco at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
Enough with the kids' gloves with regards to Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco. The time to get these kids into the rotation is now, and not later. This new version of the Indians is standing at a precipice that they've been at in both 2011 and 2012. Jim Pete takes a look at why the Indians should bring these kids up sooner, rather than later. He also opines about why this team may just be a contender, and ponders the importance of Ubaldo Jimenez vs. Justin Verlander tonight...

Around the Farm: May 20, 2013
There are players every year that seem to come out of the woodwork to become good-to-great prospects. The first guy that comes to mind is Jose Ramirez last season. Ramirez struggled tonight, but the guy at the top of ATF is someone who's surprising this year, and has surprised in the past as well. Join Jim Pete, as he winds us through the daily baseball tidings in Monday's ATF.

The night was chalk full of top prospects, as Trevor Bauer, Jose Ramirez, #Washtime, Tyler Naquin, Francisco Lindor, Jordan Smith, and Tony Wolters, all made news for one reason or another during the Sunday games. Two players off that list made the top three in tonight's ATF. Which two? Join Jim Pete as he takes you on a trip through the Tribe's organization.

Cleveland Sports Insiders 2.5: Indians ARE that good
Join Jim Pete and Steve Orbanek tonight at 9:00 for another edition of Cleveland Sports Insider, as the two avid watchers of General McLane athletics and Cleveland Indians baseball start their scoreboard watching early. Their topics of conversation will focus on your Cleveland Indians, who wrapped up their week with a dominating 6-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners and former Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez. Their 6-0 shutout victory was their seventh of the season, which matched their win total against former Cy Young winners as well. The Indians improved to 7-1 against Cy Young winners, and the CSI boys will surely mention this five to six thousand times, to match twitter.

Lindor and Naquin are Fishing for Mudcats
The Carolina Mudcats just aren't very good right now. The team has been riddled with injury since the middle of April, but even with the missing starters, have had a hard time plating runners. Three guys that haven't been struggling are #1 picks Francisco Lindor and Tyler Naquin, who really are the leaders of this ballclub. You throw in starter Cody Anderson, who's been dominant of late, and you have three of the most intriguing prospects in the system. Join Jim Pete, as he goes Fishing for Mudcats.

The Corner of Carnegie and Ontario finds an ace
Justin Masterson can be an ace? I don't know that the peripherals necessarily match up, but if he continues to throw like he did on Monday, the Indians may have just found the guy that can carry the load for the 2013 Indians in that capacity. Regardless of numbers, Masterson is important to the future of the stability of the rotation. Join Jim Pete at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario as he talks Masterson's future, Mickey Callaway's early brilliance, and the hunt for "Orbanek's fifteen minutes of fame."

Around the Farm: May 13, 2013
The Columbus Clippers were the only team in the Indians' organization that managed to pull out a win on Monday night, but that doesn't mean there weren't some interesting games, good and bad, from some of the organizations top prospects, and top surprises as well. The headliners tonight certainly won't disappoint, as we have a nice mix of those guys you'd expect to see, and those you can't believe you are seeing. Join Jim Pete for Monday Night's ATF.

Around the Farm: Mother's Day, 2013
The Indians' organization flopped a bit on Sunday afternoon, as everyone but the Aeros felt the sting of defeat. The Aeros, on the other hand, played a back-and-forth affair before winning the game in extra-innings. The player with the winning hit sits atop our ATF tonight all by his lonesome, but he was far from the only interesting performance, good and bad, in Sunday Night's edition. Join Jim Pete with his look at Sunday's most interesting players.

Fishing for Mudcats: Jordan Smith finds his groove
The Carolina Mudcats continue to hit the ball well, but the fact that they can't seem to drive in runs combined with a pitching staff that has a hard time not allowing runs has left the Muddies with a bad mix for winning. Jordan Smith, Luigi Rodriguez, Jerrud Sabourin and Cody Anderson carried the team this week, but not far enough for a winning record in week 5. Go fishing with the Jim Pete and your Carolina Mudcats...

Say hello to your first place Indians. That's right ladies and gentlemen, after taking two of three from the first place Detroit Tigers, the Cleveland Indians have joined Detroit at the top of the standings in the A.L. Central with a 20-15 record. The Indians are 6-1 since last week's episode of CSI, which matched their 6-1 record the week prior.

Around the Farm: Cinco de Mayo, 2013
Carlos Carrasco and Luigi Rodriguez celebrated Cinco de Mayo in style on Sunday, with two outstanding performances. Carrasco put all the injury worries to rest with six innings of one run ball.

Fishing for Mudcats: Lindor soars while the Muddies sink
The Carolina Mudcats don't look all that good on paper, but Francisco Lindor makes it all better in the land of Carolina. Lindor has exploded offensively, and while there are some that says he still needs seasoning, the #1 prospect is making a case to be moved now. Join Jim Pete with his weekly Carolina Mudcats notebook, as he takes a close look at Lindor, and the rest of the Mudcats week.
