Around the Farm, October 20, 2012
The AFL and Caribbean Winter Leagues proceeded, and IPI was there bringing all the Indians' action. There was a distinct smell of the Carolina League, with eight of nine Indians players mentioned today all with CL experience. One of Jim Pete's favorites returned to action after being out since August, and racked up two hits on the night. Find out who it was, after the jump (Ken Inness/MiLB.com)...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: And the coaching staff is?...
Terry Francona was the first move in an intricate offseason that will see a front office try to reinvent themselves on the fly. Each move this team makes will carry a massive amount of weight. Phase one was the hiring of a credible manager. Phase two begins as that manager shapes his coaching staff. Join Jim Pete as he takes an inclusive look at potential candidates, talks bullpen, Michael Brantley and playoff baseball, after the jump

Around the Farm: October 14, 2012
The Arizona Fall League had the day off, so ATF comes in with a slow and steady day with only five players in action. Jesus Aguilar has been struggling in the early stages of the winter leagues, as has Hector Rondon. Tim Fedroff got his winter league started right where his 2012 regular season left off, as did Toru Murata and Danny Salazar. Find out just how well they played, after the jump...

Tribe Happenings: It's time for Chris Antonetti to lead
The Cleveland Indians made the first move in major league baseball when they hired Terry Francona as their 42nd manager. While that's clearly a move of major importance, if it becomes the Indians biggest move of the offseason, the Indians will be in serious trouble in 2013. Can Chris Antonetti build on his early momentum with the hiring of Terry Francona, or will this offseason turn into another winter of discontent?

Around the Farm: Instructs October 12, 2012
In the final Instructs ATF, the Parallel League "Goodyear" team sang its swan song with a look at a handful of future Indians taking part. A couple of players that call Cleveland home both had hits, as they continue their slow-but-sure climb through the system. A shining potential top-ten prospect continued to showcase a .300 bat...again, while the Sabour-Tooth tigers were given another multi-hit ballgame from their favorite over-achiever. Check out ATF with yours truly, Jim Pete...after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Culture Shock
The city of Cleveland is used to being a second, third or fourth tier option for free agents and top tier coaches and managers. Terry Francona may not have changed that mentality, but he certainly proved that there are more things to choosing a team than location. Will Francona bring a new culture to Cleveland Indians baseball, or will Chris Antonetti and Mark Shapiro override the momentum?

Around the Farm: Instructs October 6, 2012
In Saturday's Instructs action, there was a corner infielder who had his third extra-base hit in only four games. There was a 16-year-old catcher who is now 3-for-6 in his first two games, and has a ton of potential. There's a first round pick who continues to hit the ball, and is ready to fly through the system. Find out who...after the jump...

Around the Farm: Instructs October 5th, 2012
Another day of Instructs, that actually took a bit of a backseat to the news of Terry Francona taking over the reigns of the Cleveland Indians. With that said, pitching really took the forefront, as Dylan Baker continued to absolutely dominate the Instructs. Grant Sides is perched to make the same type of move as Cody Allen. How good were they? Join Jim Pete after the jump to find out...

Terry Francona may be a done deal
Terry Francona came into town on Friday to interview for the Cleveland Indians job. What initially seemed like a ploy for another player (or in this case, a manager) to use the Indians to get a better job and more money has turned into a legitimate opportunity for a big-time Indians hire. Is the Francona hire a formality, or will the job ultimately go to Sandy Alomar? Find out if it even matters, after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Francona vs. Alomar
It's the last day of the regular season, and it's definitely time to start looking forward...instead of backwards. With that said, Terry Francona and Sandy Alomar Jr. are officially going toe-to-toe for the right to become to the brand new Indians' manager. Is Francona using the Indians to get more money from another team? Will Alomar really take a job if Toronto or Boston calls? Join Jim Pete to find out his thoughts...after the jump...

Around the Farm: Instructs September 29, 2012
Francisco Lindor and Dorssys Paulino continued their friendly competition, with two hits each, as both players are hitting .500 or better during instructs. Jake Lowery continued his resurgence with two hits of his own. On the pitching side of things, Kieran Lovegrove got knocked around, but Dylan Baker continues to break out with another dominating performance. Check up on all the numbers for the Tribe's top prospects, after the jump...

"Manny's not the only one to blame..."
The Cleveland Indians fired Manny Acta on Thursday so they could presumably get a jump start on their offseason pursuit of a new manager. With Sandy Alomar Jr.'s name being bantered about with several potential openings come this offseason, this could give the Indians an advantage. Of course, with the front office intact, will a new manager really make a difference? Jim Pete discusses 'new manager folly," after the jump.

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: It was the best of times...
...it was the worst of times. With the Indians season winding down, the 2013 season looms. While the Indians are likely to make a move with regards to Chris Antonneti and Manny Acta quickly, what's less sure is what's going to happen to the roster. Here's Jim Pete's quick look at what could happen, as he looks into his crystal ball...after the jump...
