Michael Roth (Photo: AP)There still is not much of anything to report on any of the Indians unsigned top ten picks as none of them have signed or are close to signing. In fact, the dialogue with most if not all is nearly non-existent between the Indians and the player’s representation. I can tell you two things though: 1.) All of these signings except maybe 5th rounder right-handed pitcher Will Roberts...

(photo: Tony Lastoria)Well, I wish it were that easy to just throw a name up there, but for once in the history of the Tribe, there are several incredible options available. But before we get there, just what happened to one Fausto Carmona?
It's distinctly hard to remember just when Carmona stopped being a factor as a top-of-the-rotation starter for the Cleveland Indians....
Sailing with the Clippers is a weekly Monday morning installment that explores the week that was for Triple-A Columbus.
The Clippers were faced with plenty of adversity this week, losing one of their best players to a Major League promotion, and a number of others to injury. One position in general, catcher, has seemed to be a cursed one. Still, it was another generally successful week for...
