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...

Around the Farm: Instructs September 22
The Tribe's Instructional League team threw out some offense on Saturday morning, rolling over the Reds to the tune of 9-1. There were hits galore, as everyone either got a hit, or got on base. Leading the charge was Jake Lowery, who launched his first Arizona home run in the Instructional League. Find out who else made a name for themselves, after the jump...

Around the Farm: Instructs September 21
And ATF rolls into the fall. It was another full day of action, with the interesting time share at short going on between Francisco Lindor and Dorssys Paulino. This will give us our first indicator of how close...or far apart the two are in their development, both offensively and defensively. Join Jim Pete, as he reclaims the reigns to ATF...fall-style...after the jump...

Cleveland Sports Insiders: 9/22/2012
The Browns look to upend the Buffalo Bills in week three. Are the Browns ready to win, or...are they ready to disappoint? Is the Eastern Conference's Central Division ripe for the taking, or are the Bulls ready to run away and hide...with or without Derrick Rose? Do the Indians have anyone worth keeping in the rotation at this point, or is it time to just dump them all, and start guys off the street? Wild Thing?...you out there? Join Steve and Jim on CSI...tonight at 10:30

A rainy day on the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
With the Cleveland Indians "battling" the Minnesota Twins for the worst record in the American League Central, you have to ask yourself one question: Is this the worst Cleveland Indians team in recent memory? While there have been worse records and worse teams, a case can be made that this version of the Indians ranks near the top of really bad Indians teams...or would that be the bottom?

Join Jim Pete as he weaves you through the final 2012 game for the Tribe's minor league affiliate in BIG GAME fashion, as a starter showed off some perfection, a former major leaguer saved his best for last, and an MVP was crowned...after the jump...

Fishing for Mudcats: "Fishing Season's Over..."
