Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Less flaws is more edition
The Indians aren't perfect, but if you take a closer look at the division, neither is anyone else. Who has less flaws? Is it the White Sox, the Tigers, the Royals or our very own Cleveland Indians? It's a tough call, but Jim Pete tries to take a quick glimpse to figure out if there's one team that stands out above the rest. Here's your weekly Saturday dose from the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

Around the Farm: June 7, 2012
Tyler Cannon showed offensive promise last season, but struggled to start the season in 2012. Ronny Rodriguez did the same. Both found their inner grooves on Thursday night. Juan Diaz hit a blast that continued his hit streak since returning from Cleveland. The top ATF performer showcased the right-stuff, well, the Wright stuff anyways.

Around the Farm: June 6, 2012
Tony Wolters keeps raking, and Jerrud Sabourin keeps hitting. There was a Nick Weglarz sighting, and Jose De La Torre may be a name to start paying attention to. Wednesday Night's ATF headline grabber may just be the best pure defensive catcher in the system. While he generally doesn't hit much, he proved there's a bit of offensive in there, which is icing on the cake. Who is it? Find out after the jump.

Fishing for Mudcats: "It's too late now, I'm afraid..."
The first half is winding to a close, and the Carolina Mudcats are trying to right a ship that has seemingly sailed after lsoing all their games last week. While this week was an improvement, as they played over .500 baseball, they still dropped another game to first place Winston-Salem. It may be over...before it's over. Join Jim Pete on a fishing trip, with this week's Fishing for Mudcats...

Around the Farm: June 6, 2012--Matt LaPorta-who?
Columbus scored 21 runs yesterday, and as you can imagine, dominated ATF on Tuesday night. Zeke Carrera rolled out a four hit-five run performance, perhaps re-emerging as a potential fourth outfielder. T.J. McFarland continued to gain footing as a top prospect with another seven-inning gem. The star of Tuesday night's show is the guy that has taken Matt LaPorta's slot as our ATF star. Could he be LaPorta's replacement in Cleveland in the future? Here's ATF...draft style...

Around the Farm: June 5th, 2012
Lake County dominated tonight's ATF with some pretty incredible performances over their 13-inning marathon. Jordan Smith took his frustrations out on not being picked for the All-Star team with another outstanding night. Carlos Santana brought his "smooth" swing to Low A for a one-night-only performance. Tonight's top slot was dominance-out-of-nowhere for a Captains reliever. Jim Pete brings his draft-night bravado to tonight's ATF.

Around the Farm: June 3, 2012--Many Sides of Sabourin
The evening was a short one for the Indians' organization, as the Akron Aeros and Columbus Clippers both saw their contests suspended due to rain. With that said, Carolina and Lake County both poured on the runs with victories. Jerrud Sabourin continued his Wally Joyner impersonation (the good year), while a new stud reliever may be emerging. Join Jim Pete's Sunday fray as he takes the journey Around the Farm...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Back to the Future Edition
With visions of Belle, Baerga on Lofton dancing in my head, the Indians begin a series against the Twins looking to regain a first place position lost. It's a long season, but with players like Jason Kipnis, Lonnie Chisenhall, Michael Brantley, and yes, Johnny Damon, it just might be the season that the Indians overtake the equally flawed Tigers and White Sox. Join Jim Pete at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario for a nostalgic weekend series...

Around the Farm: May 30, 2012: The Candlelight Vigil Edition
There's a Colon in the Indians' cupboard once again, only this one isn't a bloated, 40-year-old, fat guy. Adam Abraham continues his role as the biggest over-achiever in the system. Tonight though, the top of ATF goes to a guy who's no stranger to it, and could be his last appearance here for a bit. Jim Pete brings you the candlelight vigil edition of Around the Farm, if you can handle the speculation, that is.

Fishing for Mudcats: "Choking on the splinters..."
The Carolina Mudcats rolled out an 0-6 record during the eighth week of Carolina League play, to fall seven games behind first place, and likely end their hopes for a first half title. With pitching that dropped off the deck, and an offense that hasn't been able to put it all together just yet, Edwin Rodriguez finds himself behind the eight ball early in the season. Jim Pete and Beck go Fishing for Mudcats..Yo, Cut it...

Around the Farm: May 29, 2012
T.J. House is dominant nearly every time he toes the rubber this season. The Indians are trying out Jeremie Tice in left field because his bat is just too good. Tony Wolters celebrated his Indians' minor league player of the week award with his best performance of the season. The top slot of ATF goes to a power-hitter that nearly hit for the cycle, without the homer? Jim Pete brings a top-heavy lineup to IPI's ATF...

Around the Farm: May 28, 2012: The Memorial Day Edition
Jerrud Sabourin continues his multi-hit barrage in Lake County. Zach McAllister returns to the minors and still showcased that major league talent. Kyle Bellows' bat has woken up in Akron, while Felix Sterling's arm has gone to sleep. The top slot in the ATF is a 'welcome back' not to a resurgent starter in Akron, who revitalized his career with the most difficult pitch to master. Jim Pete gives you the Memorial Day dose of Around the Farm...after the jump...

Around the Farm: May 27, 2012
Cord Phelps belted his fifth homer of the season, and Jerrud Sabourin continued his multi-hit barrage. The top of Sunday's ATF belongs to a ten-year veteran of the minor leagues, who has spent some time in the minors. Check out the pre-Memorial Day festivities with IPI's Around the farm...
