This is a really good video of Indians first base and outfield prospect Jordan Brown opening up and explaining some of the frustrations he went through last year with his non-callup and how he regrets some of the things he said. This video is courtesy of MLB.com and from the Rookie Development Program.

UPDATE 8:45 a.m: According to a source connected with the Indians, when asked about this story they said that this was the "the first they had ever heard of it" in regard to trading Carmona and that they have "zero interest" in trading him.
Based on some conversations with team officials throughout this offseason, it seems highly unlikely they would abandon Valbuena at second base or even...

This is just a quick note to mention that I will be on SportsTime Ohio's "All Bets Are Off With Bruce Drennan" show today at about 4:30pm to talk about the Tribe, prospects, and the upcoming book. My co-host and partner in crime Paul Cousineau for our on-line radio show "Smoke Signals" will be guest hosting the entire Drennan show today from 3:00-6:00pm, so set those DVRs and give Paulie some support.

After having about 24 hours to digest the trade where the Indians On Monday sent 22-year old third base prospect Jesus Brito to the Pirates for 27-year old infielder Brian Bixler, I feel the deal makes a little more sense today than it did yesterday. A little.
Bixler is not much to get excited about as he strikes out way too much and has had a very questionable showing at the big league level...

IPI 2010 Top 50 Prospect Countdown: Preview
The 2009 season was a bitter pill for Indians fans to swallow.
After a spending spree in the offseason not really seen since the days when Progressive Field was packed and sold out every night in the 1990s, the Indians appeared poised to make another run at the postseason going into last season. But when the season started and the balls started flying the bats were swinging, things quickly...

The Indians today announced they have acquired infielder Brian Bixler from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for third baseman Jesus Brito.
The acquisition of Bixler, 27, seemingly fills the Indians lust for a utility infielder this offseason, and his right-handed bat should be a good complement to the switch-hitting Asdrubal Cabrera at shortstop and left-handed hitting Luis Valbuena at...

The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has signed free agent catcher Mike Redmond to a major league contract. The deal is for one year at a reported $850,000.
The signing of Redmond slides catcher Wyatt Toregas to Triple-A Columbus to start the season where he will now be the caddy for uber prospect catcher Carlos Santana. Redmond will backup catcher Lou Marson in Cleveland to start...

It's been a quiet offseason for the Indians since they named Manny Acta as the new skipper, so we took the opportunity to take a little break from the weekly on-line radio show "Smoke Signals" that Paul Cousineau and I host every Thursday night. However, it is about time to dust off the show and start our coverage of the 2010 season for the Cleveland Indians.
Things are set to kick off again...
