Swinging for the Fences: Waiting to trade Cabrera
What is the future of Asdrubal Cabrera with the Indians? At the end of last season that, many believed there was no way he would wear an Indians uniform again. Yet here we are at the end of January and he's still with the team and figures to be here when opening day rolls around. Should the Tribe wait to trade him? The IBI's Jake Dungan says better trade opportunities may present themselves during the season.

Swinging for the Fences: Santana at third and roster versatility
This offseason's Winter Ball campaign has been an interesting and exciting one for Tribe fans for two reasons: 1) Jesus Aguilar ('nuff said!) and 2) Carlos Santana has traded the catcher's mitt for a third baseman's glove, a decision that could prove to be beneficial not only for Santana as he searches for a new permanent position, but also for the team as their versatility would only improve with the shift. The IBI's Jake Dungan explains.

Swinging for the Fences: It's now or never for Carlos Carrasco
Here we are heading into the fifth year since the dreaded Cliff Lee trade. But before we say happy anniversary, let's look at this trade and see how it has panned out. The Indians got Lou Marson, Jason Donald and Jason Knapp, who have since moved on due to injury, inconsistency or other reasons. That leaves the centerpiece of the deal, Carlos Carrasco. Can he finally reach his full potential? The IBI's Jake Dungan analyzes.

Swinging for the Fences: 2014 AL Central early outlook
It's been a winter of changes in the AL Central thus far as all five teams have made moves in hopes of making the division race more competitive next season. The IBI's Jake Dungan makes an early prediction the the AL Central could be a three-team race between the Tigers, Indians and Royals.

Swinging for the Fences: New Year's resolutions
It's a new year, a time when goals and resolutions are made. And while some are planning a new exercise and weight-loss regimen or aiming to get that big promotion at work, Terry Francona and his crew at Progressive Field are setting their sights higher as they hope to push their way to the next level as a ball-club coming off a year where they got a brief taste of postseason play. The IBI's Jake Dungan lists goals for the Tribe in 2014. Quintessential

Swinging for the Fences: The value of minor league signings
So far this offseason, while the rest of baseball has been consumed with 10-year contracts, posting fees and blockbuster trades, the Indians have been hard at work finding value on the market without breaking the bank. Chris Antonetti has thus far done an adequate job at combing the available arms for starting pitching and bullpen help. Have they been blockbuster moves? No, but the IBI's Jake Dungan says not to be quick to overlook the minor league signings.

Swinging for the Fences: From the gutter to the grail
"From the gutter to the grail. we rise up to win it..." Those lyrical words of encouragement penned by newly-arrived pitching prospect Trevor Bauer provided some inspiration for the new-look Tribe early in the year. But while Bauer's contributions to the hip-hop community may have been productive last season, the same cannot be said for his pitching, unfortunately. Can he still live up to the hype? The IBI's Jake Dungan speculates in this week's Swinging for the Fences.

Swinging for the Fences: Two Tribe hurlers ready to make good
By now, fans are familiar with the nicknames "Little Cowboy" and "The Herrmannator" as their recipients have been in Cleveland for a while now. But despite their tenure, starting pitcher Josh Tomlin and right-handed reliever Frank Herrmann have not yet had their 'golden opportunity' to prove themselves as their time with the actual big league club has been sporadic. However, they may finally get that chance in 2014. The IBI's Jake Dungan explains in his weekly column.

Swinging for the Fences: David Murphy and lineup balance
One of the greatest Christmas gifts many Tribe fans ever received was a baseball team to be excited about back during the winter of 2012-2013 where Terry Francona took the reins of the ballclub and took them to the next level as a playoff contender. This offseason, the Tribe made their first big free-agent signing in the form of veteran outfielder David Murphy. It may not a particularly exciting move, but the IBI's Jake Dungan explains why adding him could be essential to the team as far as lineup balance.
