The Corner of Carnegie and Ontario celebrates Ubaldo?
It's a new day here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario. While the North Shore spends it's days trying to figure out why that idiotic muskrat in Punxsutawney said winter would be over in two weeks, I'm busy saving my pennies to pick up my very first Ubaldo Jimenez jersey. That's right, it's time to embrace the enigmatic wonder of Ubaldo, and you'll never, EVER be the same again...

IBI Power Poll: The most impactful middle infielder is...?
You can say what you want about the Indians' minor league organization, but their depth of talent in the middle infield is second-to-none. How good is it? Arguably their best position player of the past four years is at shortstop, and arguably their best prospect of the past two years is at second. Two of their top three prospects are shortstops, and you could make a case that four of the top five are middle infielders? So, who will be the best?

2013 Spring Training Game #11: Dodgers 5, Indians 1
The Cleveland Indians continued their spring decent down the other side of the mountain on Sunday afternoon, as the Los Angeles Dodgers used a big inning and a big home run to blow open a pitcher's duel in the seventh inning, carrying them to a 5-1 victory over the Indians.The Tribe bullpen showcased perhaps their three biggest arms in Vinnie Pestano, Cody Allen and Nick Hagadone, and they didn't disappoint...for the most part...

Starters shaping up at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians sold out their home opener in six-minutes, bringing back memories of the 90's when the Tribe front office managed to sell out entire seasons prior to opening day. The Indians offense has given fans a reason to hope for good things to come, but this season will depend on one thing: Starting Pitching. The starters show up this week at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario. The big question is, will they show up once the season starts?

Out'field' of Dreams at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Indians outfield may not be as good as the infield overall, but the combination of the additions of the crazy hot stove season with the subtraction of the conglomerate of bad that was in left field last year could make this unit the most important on the team. The unit is defensively sound, and with Nick Swisher and Ryan Raburn in the wings, extremely versatile. Here's a look at the Indians' outfield, as compared to the rest of the A.L. Central.

The line-up-side at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians have re-built their entire offense into a versatile group of players that can hit from both sides of the plate. Over the years, these players have either put up a tremendous amount of offensive firepower, or have to ability to do just that. Do the Indians have an offense that could explode in 2013, or is the upside potential of this team a lot lower than the optimism that has surrounded them since the hiring of Terry Francona?
