IBI Power Poll: Who will be the Indians next closer?
The Cleveland Indians have many questions heading into the 2014 season, but have begun to answer those questions with the signing of David Murphy for the outfield. With their major hole apparently filled, the Indians will likely move to the bullpen to help fill the holes created by Chris Perez leaving, and Vinnie Pestano struggling. Join Jim Pete with this week's power, wondering who the next closer will be.

David Murphy joins the party at the Corner of Carnegie & Ontario
The Cleveland Indians served a bit of notice for the direction of their team in 2014 by signing former Boston and Texas outfielder David Murphy. The move seems minor in nature, but thanks to the position it fills, it should begin the domino process for this hot stove season. Join Jim Pete as he takes a close look at the Indians' acquisition, and what it could mean for the lineup in 2014.

Going for broke at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians have a model that they've followed since John Hart left the Indians in 2001. This model has brought the club four 90-win seasons, but have failed to get the Indians to the World Series. Can this team take the next step, or will the follow the path of their predecessors, who failed to make the final moves to win the ultimate Prize. Join Jim Pete with his weekly stroll around the Corner of Carnegie...

Rumors begin swirling at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
We are a week into the Hot Stove season of the 2013-2014 baseball season, and the rumors and innuendos are already at play. Chris Perez is gone, Jason Giambi is back, and Ubaldo Jimenez, Scott Kazmir, Joe Smith and Matt Albers are leaving/staying/leaving/staying. Terry Francona has reached out to an old friend in Tim Hudson, and the ball is rolling at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario. Join Jim Pete as he weaves through it all...

The hot stove season begins at the Corner of Carnegie & Ontario
The Cleveland Indians embark on an important offseason today, as they look to build upon their incredulous journey from baseball obscurity to the playoffs in 2013. While many are focusing on the potential free agents and trade candidates out of the gate, the reality is that the Indians won't make any major moves until their own free agents are addressed. Do the Indians have their RubberDucks in row, and will they make the right moves? Join Jim Pete at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, as we take a close look.

The Corner of Carnegie & Ontario: How much money is available?
The Cleveland Indians head into the 2013-2014 offseason with free-agent questions looming in front of them. Before Chris Antonetti and Terry Francona can answer those questions, they need to figure out just how much money they'll have to play with to potentially sign their internal free agents, before looking elsewhere next month. Join Jim Pete as he takes an early look at the Indians money situation heading into 2014, as well as some other internal player questions they'll need to answer in the coming weeks.

What I'd like to see in 2014 at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians are putting their 2013 season behind them, and while the 92-win season was a massive improvement from the 2012 debacle, this team is just getting started. What will the Indians do in 2014? Will they trade Asdrubal Cabrera? Will they sign Ubaldo Jimenez? Will they sign Asdrubal Cabrera? Will they fix Trevor Bauer? Will Jose Ramirez start the year off in Cleveland, and where? Join Jim Pete as ponders what may happen in 2014.

IBI Power Poll: What to do with Jimenez, Kazmir and Masterson?
The Cleveland Indians are facing an extremely difficult offseason in which both Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir are entering free agency. Obviously, both pitchers rounded into a form that is reminiscent of their dominant years with both Colorado and Tampa Bay. The question is, do you sign both pitchers, or do you have to temper your offers based on the simple fact that Justin Masterson is a free agent in 2014? Join Jim Pete for this week's power poll.

There's a playoff BUZZ at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The City of Cleveland is in the midst of a Indians' summer, and there's an all to familiar buzz surrounding the North Coast that's been absent for the past six years. The Indians are facing off against a fellow small market team tonight at 8:00 at Progressive Field, and many feel that the Indians are in over their head. Join Jim Pete as he talks about the history of Cleveland's October buzz, reminisces about Terry Francona's first press conference buzz on October 8 of last year, and looks at where this buzz may be going this year and beyond.

Cleveland Sports Insiders 2.27: Indians vs. Rays
Join IBI's Jim Pete and Michael Hattery as they take a closer look at Wednesday's match-up between the Cleveland Indians and the Tampa Bay Rays.
