When you play 198 (hopefully more) games in a season, you are not going to win them all, and the Indians encountered their first taste of defeat in 2013 on Tuesday. However, this is still Spring Training, where the final result never tells the whole story of the day. Here to examine that story in further depth is the IBI's Arthur Kinney...

The Tribe are 5-0 and on a roll after they topped the Oakland Athletics (a much better nickname than the A's) 14-10 on Monday. Join the IBI's Arthur Kinney as he looks back at this game and the best and worst performances of the day, all while working in references to Casey Coleman, Jackson Browne, the Cincinnati Reds, and THE Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Round Robin stage of the Caribbean Series is two-thirds the way over. With the tournament's hump-day now in the rearview mirror, it's a perfect time for the IBI's Arthur Kinney to take a look at the performance thus far of the Tribe's Jose Ramirez, Rob Bryson, and Ezequiel...um, what's that? Eze's not here?!

Another week of transactions is behind us and the pace of roster movement has not slowed down at all. Notable call-ups include Cole Cook getting the call to AA, Dorssys Paulino making the transition to playing in front of fans, and Matt LaPorta getting yet another crack (his last?) at the big leagues.

While this was one of the quieter weeks in terms of the transaction wire, that doesn't mean it was boring. The past week saw the Clippers roster briefly hit 21, a trade with the Orioles, multiple promotions, Josh Tomlin and Kyle Petter on the DL, the clearing of the Tribe's DFA backlog, the professional debut of Caleb Hamrick in Goodyear, and the return of Roberto Hernandez to the Major Leagues.

Whew! What a week! At one point the Indians had four players designated for assignment (is that some sort of Major League record?). The Clippers roster ended the week standing at 22 (a few more callups sans countermove and we could be looking at the Grand Canyon of roster holes here).

The Indians dumped Derek Lowe and Johnny Damon into the trash heap, and dealt Steven Wright to the Boston Red Sox, where he'll be learning from the knuckleball of Wakefield. Kluber, Rottino, Carrera and Seddon also made the move to the bigs, while Travis Hafner headed home for the birth of a child. Oh yeah, Aaron Cunningham was DFA'ed, and kept around. Oh joy...
