Swinging for the Fences: The case for bringing back Giambi
Veteran DH Jason Giambi has expressed a desire to play next year and return to the Indians. As he’ll be blowing out 43 candles on his birthday cake next season and not surprisingly is no longer putting up the same MVP-type numbers he did in his storied career, let alone even playing on a regular basis, why should Chris Antonetti re-up his deal for 2014? The IBI's Jake Dungan explains in his new weekly feature Swinging for the Fences.

Orbiting Cleveland: Is Corey Hart a fit?
We're just a short ways away from the MLB's Hot Stove season kicking into full swing. Indians fans are now free to speculate as to who the team will look to acquire this offseason.

Hart missed the entire 2013 season with knee injuries, but could a healthy Hart be a good fit in Cleveland in 2014? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he tackles that question in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Orbiting Cleveland: Can Aguilar help in 2014?
Help comes from all places in the Major Leagues.

The Indians will likely need similar contributions in 2014, and probably one of the most likely candidates is first baseman Jesus Aguilar. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he opines on the big slugger in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

The Indians offseason is strewn with forks in the road. The most important fork may have three prongs being multi-year decisions on Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez, and Scott Kazmir, but the IBI's Michael Hattery diverts his attention to a move that will inevitably have a smaller effect but yet still an effect. That is what to do with Drew Stubbs, and he breaks it down as only he can.
