For Tribe, the Price IS Right
It’s been a long time since the Indians have had a legitimate, home grown major league star rise through its ranks, and they have that player in Francisco Lindor. Would they ever consider trading him? Well, the IBI's John Mast thinks they should, and that the player they should consider trading him for is David Price to solidify the Indians rotation as one of the best in all of baseball and make them legit contenders next season.

Orbiting Cleveland: Could Cody Anderson be 2014's Salazar?
There was arguably no better Indians story in 2013 than the rise of Danny Salazar. The right-hander was electric at times, and he also gave the fan base new hope for the future? So, with that in mind, who has a chance to be 2014's version of Salazar? Perhaps it could be Cody Anderson, who was just dominant at High-A Carolina last season. Ironically enough, Anderson's seems to be trending in the exact same direction as Salazar. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he opines in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.
