Around the Farm: August 6, 2012
It definitely wasn't a showcase night for the Tribe organization, with Akron and Carolina off, and Columbus and Mahoning Valley swinging wet noodles. Lake County managed to walk-off with a win, with Jose Ramirez keeping his average near .350 on the year, and Bryson Myles starting to regain his prospect footing after injuries threatened to derail him earlier this year. The AZL Indians continued to rake, but the top spot in ATF goes to Mr. Walk-Off himself. Find out who that is, after the jump...

Dillon Howard had a decent outing on the night, and while it wasn't stellar, it was better than his mostly drab outings so far in 2012. Roberto Hernandez struck out nine against only one walk, but gave up four home runs. Jerrud Sabourin racked up another two-hit ballgame, and Jordan Smith hit his sixth homer on the season. Check out Sunday's ATF for the rest of the Tribe headliners...

Tribe Happenings: COLLAPSE
The Indians beat Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers on July 26th in their most stirring victory of the season. It gave them a 7-3 record against the Tigers, and gave them the springboard to start their first major win streak of the season. Of course, they then lost eight in a row. Join us, won't you, as we dive right into the Indians collapse, 2012 style. Don't worry, we talk about some good in there too...

Lake County blows big lead in 7-6 loss
The Lake County Captains jumped out to an early lead over the South Bend Silver Hawks and could not hold on as the bullpen gave up the winning run in the ninth inning. The Captains fell to the Silver Hawks 7-6.

Around the Farm: August 4, 2012
The AZL Indians are loaded for bear with offense right now, and while the league is clearly skewed in that direction, there are several interesting prospects that lit it up on Saturday Night. Second baseman Claudio Bautista led the way for the Indians with his best game this season so far. Leading ATF is a 2012 pick who had his first multi-hit ball-game. Find out who, after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario:The Road Not Taken
Chris Antonetti threw up the white flag on the 2012 season this past Tuesday when they failed to make any moves leading up to the trade deadline. While many consider this to be a smart play, it goes directly against the move made during last season's trade deadline. Are the Indians taking the correct path? Join Jim Pete at the Corner of Carnegie for his look at the Indians' crossroads...

Damon designated...
The Cleveland Indians designated Johnny Damon for assignment today, ended a fairly controversial tenure that forced the former all-star outfielder into the field after two seasons in the DH-role. To say it was even a moderate success would be the overstatement of the millennium, and that's definitively not hyperbole. Good luck to you Johnny Damon in your quest to latch on to a playoff contender.

Around the Farm: August 1, 2012
Jose Ramirez had a perfect night at the plate, and Francisco Lindor had another three-hit ball game. Mike Rayl showcased a solid outing, and Jacob Lee looked solid in another outing. Tonight's top of the heat belongs to another starter that seems to find his way here on occasion, even though he's not even close to the top talent with regards to starters. Tonight, there was no one better. Find out who, after the jump...

Fishing with the Mudcats: Suspension of Disbelief
The Mudcats couldn't hit this week, and they really couldn't pitch much. Put that all together, and your week isn't going to go very well. The Mudcats quest for the second half took a bit of a snag after a struggling week that saw a long losing streak, which coincided with a suspension by two of the Mudcats best players. Check out the week as we go Fishing with the Mudcats...

Around the Farm: July 31, 2012
Bryson Myles followed up Monday Night's three-hit ballgame with another. Matt LaPorta hit his first home run since July third. Roberto Hernandez didn't pitch all that well, but Giovanni Soto and Danny Salazar did. At the top of the heap was a former major leaguer, who just can't seem to find his way back to the bigs. Find out who, after the jump...

Around the Farm: July 30, 2012
Danny Jimenez threw out five innings of no-hit baseball tonight, a night in which two of the Tribe affiliates had the night off. Tyler Naquin rolled out a three-hit performance, which is made even more impressive by the fact that the Scrappers only had four total hits, and no walks. The top spot sees a three-hit game from a player that has struggled a bit with injury this season, but is really trying to return to 2011 form.

Around the Farm: July 29, 2012
The Indians had a lost weekend in Minneapolis, but their minor league teams continue to plug away with some good and some not-so-good performances. In Columbus both Tim Fedroff and Ezequiel Carrera have been on fire, but the one player in the system who may be playing the most consistent ball over the past month and a half is Mahoning Valley's Joey Wendle. Find out about him and more after the jump...

Tim Fedroff continued his International League onslaught with a big doubleheader in which he had a hit in ever at-bat but one. Cord Phelps joined him with another hot night, Bryan Price had his best night of the season out of the pen, and Rob Bryson joined him with HIS best night out of the pen on the season. No beating around the bush though, ZEKE continues to hold fort at the top of ATF...

Fishing for Mudcats: "Floating to Nowhere"
The Mudcats can't find any consistency this season, other than to be consistently inconsistent. While the offense seemed to find their groove without their big bopper doing much of anything, their rotation and their bullpen did about what was expected, and tread water, reversing roles week after week. Tune into this week's Fishing for Mudcats, to see the High A Mudcats at their best...

Zeke Carrera is just killing it in Columbus, and like last year, may be the best player there right now. Juan Diaz is playing his best baseball of the season, and perhaps even of his entire career. Preston Guilmet is the iceman, and clearly doesn't let implosions effect him longer than about a minute. At the top of the heap is a guy that's used to leading the "pack." I know, mystic...so find out who it is...after the jump...

Smoke Signals 7/24: Buying, Selling or Quitting?
The Yankees may have pulled off the surprise of the deadline with the trade for Ichiro. The White Sox made the first couple of moves with Youkilis and Brett Myers. The Tigers pull in a big-time starter in Anibal Sanchez. The Indians...The Indians...The Indians...well...they sure like to talk about Windows? With Tony vacationing on the great American beaches, join Jim and the IPI as they talk trade deadline...
