Around the Farm: September 1, 2012
It was a busy night of minor league baseball, and the starters really got after their opponents last night. Robbie Aviles went five strong in Mahoning, while Mason Radeke went 1/3 more in Lake County. Danny Salazar dominated again in Akron, as did the guy at the top. Between the four starters mentioned, only two earned runs were allowed in 24 1/3 innings. Not too shabby. Join Jim Pete on walk through Sunday Night's minor league memorables...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: "Summertime Blues..."
With the dawn of a new month, the Cleveland Indians can put to bed a historically bad August that put the 2012 Cleveland Indians in the same conversations as some of the worst teams in the history of the franchise. For those that know THAT history, knows just how BAD that is. Take a stroll over the the Corner of Carnegie, and let's all say goodbye to August together....after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 29, 2012
The organization began their final week of the season with some of the same ole', same ole' rolling out big games. Jose Ramirez had another ho-hum, three hit performance, and Jordan Smith had another two hits. A couple of starters stole the show though, each going 7 1/3 innings, and giving up a total of three earned runs. Who was it? Find out after the jump....

Fishing for Mudcats: "Waiting to Exhale..."
The Mudcats were officially eliminated from playoff contention this past week, but that was all just a formality. Now, the only thing left to do is wait and see who's taking off for the greener pastures of Ohio, and Akron. There were few big weeks here in Carolina, but there WERE a few. Just not enough to make much difference. Let's get fishing...after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 27, 2012
It was a slow night as we break into the final regular season week in the minors. Carolina and the AZL Indians were off, while Mahoning Valley was postponed. Akron provided a double-header to take up a bit of the slack though. Last night showcased two ATF all-stars in 2012. The first is a starter in Akron, who is rebounding from injury. The second is a middle-infielder in Lake County, who can't seem to stop hitting. Find out who, after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 26, 2012
Russ Canzler continues to put together solid seasons, but has yet to see it come to fruition with a long-term stint in the big leagues. T.J. McFarland had another solid outing for the Clippers, but continues to sandwich them with bad ones. Tony Wolters had another three-hit performance in Carolina. Who else made Sunday's Around the Farm? Find out, after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: New Beginnings???
With two weeks full of thoughts after "the man" tried to hold our friendly neighborhood co-editor down, Jim Pete breaks out part two of this week's Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, as he takes a look at a potential new beginning for the Indians in 2012. Might the dam break this winter, with a series of trades and releases that change the face of the franchise forever? Are we ready for the Kipnis and Chisenhall era?

Indians pitching dominates in Arizona
The usually offensive minded AZL Indians won a rare pitching battle, riding the arms of Hector Rondon, Luis Lugo and Thomas White to a 2-1 victory.

Around the Farm: August 25, 2012
Dorssys Paulino rolled out his first really big game at short-season Mahoning Valley, but was overwhelmed by Mudcats, who dominated ATF on Saturday night with a variety of show-stoppers. Which topped the list: a seven-inning, seven K gem, a two-homer game, or a guy who managed to play every position on the diamond? Join Jim Pete as he "Tooles" Around the Farm...after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: The end of the beginning of the end?
The Indians say goodbye to another old friend this week, as it certainly looks like Grady Sizemore is gone for good...or is he? There may be more goodbyes before the 2013 season...and a potential hello as well. Join me on the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, as we we continue to hate the Yankees, and hope for the best...

Around the Farm: August 22, 2012
Ronny Rodriguez belted home run #18 last night, and is clearly a candidate to visit Akron for the playoffs. Jake Sisco was outstanding for a second straight start in Mahoning, but couldn't overcome the paltry offense. The top of ATF on Wednesday has another starter on the peak, who may just be having the best season of any starter in the system. Find out who that is...after the jump...

Fishing for Mudcats: "It's a Dog Eat Dog World..."
With the stretch drive in full swing, the Carolina Mudcats unofficially called it a season, going 1-5, and falling into last place in Carolina League Southern Division. There are 16 games left, and I'm sure the Tribe brass it's evaluation time, as the club starts looking at some of the talent for a potential move to Akron in 2013.

The Carolina Mudcats were rained out, giving the system a short set of games. T.J. House saw a few of the cards tumble, as he got blitzed in only one inning of work. The Akron bullpen pitched well though, led by Preston Guilmet and Bryce Stowell. Columbus led the way on the night though, as David Huff pitched like a major leaguer, and his offense dominated once again. An intriguing shortstop prospect led the way for ATF? Who?

Around the Farm: August 19, 2012
Every once in awhile, there's a night that really has leveled off numbers, and that's what Sunday night was for ATF. Sure, there was the Lake County Captains, that are clicking on all cylinders right now, but passed that, the system is just playing well. Lee, Sever, Wendle, LRod, Myles, Sabourin, Ramirez, Aguilar, Chen and Neal are a few that make an appearance. Who's at the top? Find out...after the jump...

Howard and Sterling dominate AZL Royals
On Saturday night, two top Indians' prospects are finding their groove after struggling starts to the 2012 season as the Indians beat the Royals 5-1. Dillon Howard led off with his second straight promising start in August, while Felix Sterling rolled out his fourth straight dominating outing in relief of Howard. The AZL Indians need a run to make it to the playoffs, but boy, that pitching is starting to look really good. Check out how good, after the jump...

Gregorio Petit is continuing his unsung assault on International League pitching, while his teammate, Cord Phelps, saw his three-game homer streak come to an end. Ronny Rodriguez continues to make a case for a late promotion, while Kyle Blair continues to make a case to get out of baseball. At the top of the tonight's ATF heap is a guy with five straight multi-hit ballgames. Find out who, after the jump...

Fishing For Mudcats: "I expect nothing, and got it"
The Mudcats entered week #19 at a pivotal point. The team was certainly not in contention for a playoff spot, but if they wanted to be more than just a waystation for prospects, they needed to move now. Instead, they played .500 baseball again, wasting perhaps the biggest week for any Mudcats player offensively during the entire season. The Muddies also bid adieu to Jesus Aguilar, who is heading to greener pastures...Let's Get Fishing...

Fishing with Mudcats: "We'll drive backwards"
The Carolina Mudcats are at that point in the season in which they either make their move, or fall back into the pack for good. Based upon this week of baseball, things just aren't looking good. After a two week hiatus, Fishing with Mudcats returns for a two-parter to get you all caught up with the Carolina League. Today is part one...and tomorrow we'll complete the cycle heading into next week.

Around the Farm: August 16, 2012
The Indians system never sleeps, even when the big league club does. Ronny Rodriguez continued to show off his power with a mammoth blast in the Carolina League last night. Tyler Holt is beginning to heat up in Akron, as the Aeros push towards the playoffs. T.J. McFarland's topsy-turvy Triple A run continued with a solid performance for the Clippers. At the top of the ATF mountain is a guy who has eight hits in his last two ballgames, and no, it's not Dorssys Paulino (he only has 6). Find out who, after the jump...

Columbus breaks four-game losing streak, 7-1
Columbus had both its pitching and hitting in rhythm Thursday night, and a victory against the Durham Bulls was the end result. The Clippers, after losing the first two games of their series with the Bulls, defeated Durham, 7-1, at Huntington Park Thursday. The Clippers were riding a four-game losing streak heading into Thursday night's contest.
