(Photo Credit Lianna Holub)As inconsistent this team is, the entire Western Division in the Eastern League seems to be just as inconsistent. As of Tuesday morning, only Harrisburg, leaders of the division, is at .500 at 15-15. The Akron Aeros can take that as an opening to turn things around anytime soon.
Not that the Aeros are playing bad, but there are games that leave you absolutely puzzled,...

Paul Cousineau and I are back on the cyberwaves tonight for some Cleveland Indians baseball talk in another edition of "Smoke Signals" from 11:00 - 11:30 p.m. EST. Tonight I rejoin Paul on the cyberwaves after a three week hiatus due to my health issues.
With an off-day for the Indians after a 3-3 west coast trip, tonight is a good time to reassess the team and look at how things stand. We...

On Monday the Indians announced that they have optioned right-handed pitcher Jeanmar Gomez to Triple-A Columbus. No immediate move was made to replace him on the active 25-man roster. The Indians will need a starter by Saturday to plug in the rotation and that will likely be right-hander Carlos Carrasco who should be ready to come off the disabled list then. In the meantime, it is possible the Indians...

The K-Tribe Chronicle: Bullpen Brilliance
(Photo: Kinston Indians)From the Reservation:
The Kinston Indians did something this week with regularity that they have failed to do all season long, and that's win games regularly. Prior to this week, the Kinston offense wielded paper bats, and the starting pitching was erratic, to say the least. The only consistent part of this team was the bullpen.
Over the past week, the K-Tribe...

Cord Phelps (Photo: Lianna Holub)Clippers spilt a pair at Huntington Park
Usually the Clippers make a lot of noise on offense, but they were silenced in Game 1 of a doubleheader with the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs as Columbus dropped a 4-1 decision. Eddie Bonine picked up the win for the Iron Pigs while Clippers lefthander David Huff dropped to 3-1 on the year. Mike Zagurski got the save for Lehigh...

Indians' farm system boasts best starting depth in the majors
Kyle Blair (photo: Lianna Holub) The Cleveland Indians' farm system has seen an infusion of talent over the past three seasons. Cleveland Indians management used several high profile trades, as well as a more aggressive drafting policy to begin to reload a system that wasn't producing major league players. The major focus of this strategy was the starting pitching.
The Indians began to attain...

The Indians have activated outfielder LeVon Washington from extended spring training and assigned him to Low-A Lake County. He was the Indians' 2nd round pick in last year's draft and was expected to open the season at Lake County, but some hip and leg injuries from the offseason and spring training sidelined him. He is expected to make his Captains debut tonight at Classic Park in Eastlake, Ohio...
