Minor Happenings: White, Gardner Off To Great Starts
"Minor Happenings" is a weekly column which covers the important developments and news in the Indians farm system. While most of the information in this report is from my own research and through interviews I have conducted with organizational personnel, some information in this report is collected and summarized from the various news outlets that cover each team.
This is Part 2 of this week

Clip & Dirty: 4/15/10
The Clippers 4-game win streak came to an end on Thursday with a 6-3 loss to the Mud Hens. Jeanmar Gomez had another mediocre outing, going six innings, but yielding five runs thanks in most part to a big 5th inning punctuated by a 2-run blast off the bat of Brennan Boesch. Carlos Santana, Russell Branyan and Trevor Crowe were all getting a day off and it showed as the offense could only piece together...

Greenwell's Five RBI Lifts Lake County
Bo Greenwell continued to swing a hot bat; his RBI single in the sixth inning scored Argenis Martinez for his fifth run driven in, breaking a 4-4 tie and lifting Lake County to 6-4 win over Lansing. The Captains improved to 8-0 on the year, their best start in team history.
Casey Frawley got the game started with a leadoff triple, and scored...

Tonight Paul Cousineau and I are back on the cyberwaves with another edition of "Smoke Signals" from 9:30-10:30 PM EST. We will recap the week that was for the big league Indians as well as what went down in the minor leagues. Needless to say, it was a forgettable week for the big league club, but we will dig a little deeper into the results from the week as sometimes wins-losses don't tell the whole...

Game Recap 4/14: Greenwell Helps Keep Captains Perfect
Seven in a Row for Lake County
Captains' leftfielder Bo Greenwell was at it again Wednesday night collecting another three hits, and it was his two-run single capping off a three run second inning that proved to be the difference as Lake County won their seventh straight beating Lansing, 7-3.
It was the home opener for the Lugnuts and the Captains jumped out in front on Chun Chen's...

Three Up, Three Down: 4/8 - 4/13
Welcome to 2010's inaugural edition of Three Up, Three Down. Minor league play for all of the full season affiliates started last week, and while it is still a small sample size, we have some players who are hot, and also some who are not throughout the Indians' minor league system.
We're going to add another feature to Three Up, Three Down this year; what I'll call the "Bold Prediction Tracker."...

Tell me there isn't a small part of you, faithful reader, that doesn't envision a starting rotation for the Big League Tribe that is anchored by Nick Hagadone, Alex White and T.J. House after their first starts of the High Single-A season. I know that the sample is small, but every indicator points to all three being top-end starters at the highest level (and let's not forget Kelvin De La Cruz and...

The Low-A Lake County Captains continued their impressive start by sweeping a three game series from the South Bend Silver Hawks, the Arizona Diamondbacks affiliate. With the sweep, Lake County now sits alone on top of the Midwest League’s Eastern Division with a 6-0 record.
The Captains’ success has been based on timely hitting and a strong bullpen coming from behind in four games this...

Game Recap 4/13: Gimenez Hits Walkoff Homer
Walkoff Winner For Gimenez, Clippers
In a game which was shown on live television all over Ohio by the Indians cable network SportsTime Ohio, outfielder Chris Gimenez provided a made for TV moment with a dramatic solo home run to left field with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the host Columbus Clippers a 4-3 win.
The win was made possible by yet more dramatics in...

Clip and Dirty: 4/12/10
Scott Lewis is your focal point this morning as he went 6, gave up only 4 base runners and struck out 10 in the Clippers 5-3 win over Louisville. Lewis is one of the litany of lefty ‘finesse’ guys that the Indians formerly tried to hang their hats on and here’s hoping that the 5th time is the charm, with Laffey, Sowers, Jackson and Huff all being pretty well-known commodities and none of them...

IPI Inbox:  Perez, Judy On The Mend
It's time to clear out the inbox, which as expected with the start of the season is starting to fill up much more quickly. With that in mind, the IPI Inbox will likely become a weekly feature this season, likely on Saturday. If you have a question on anything pertaining to the Indians minor league players and team, or even the big league team, feel free to contact me. I also pull from questions in...
