Marty Popham 2011 Scouting Report
Here is the scouting report written around this time last year in advance of the 2011 season for right-handed pitcher Marty Popham. The Indians lost him today to the Minnesota Twins in the Triple-A phase of the Rule 5 Draft. This report has only been available in my 2011 Prospect Book and not available on-line until now. (Note: the video included below is new and would have been for his 2012 scouting...

UPDATE 10:40am: I wish a lot of luck to Marty Popham and Donnie Webb. Triple-A phase guys can have value, as we have seen with lefty Matt Meyers who was selected in the Triple-A phase two years ago and is now a candidate to pitch with the Angels sometime this year.
Popham will be missed the most, but he is going to a better opportunity. Right now the Indians have a system flooded with pitching...

Winter Meetings Rundown: Day 3
Carlos Lee (Photo: AP)In the past 24 hours there have not been many rumors with the Indians close to anything on the free agent or trade front, but that is how things are in general at the Winter Meetings as it seems everyone is waiting for Albert Pujols to make his decision. Once that big domino falls there could be a flurry of activity over the final 12-24 hours in Dallas before the meetings come...

Rob Bryson (Photo: IPI)Note: I'll be doing a live blog tomorrow before and during the Rule 5 Draft with and news or information on any picks the Indians make or players they lose.
Welcome to Rule 5 Eve.
Okay, so it does not have the same ring to it as Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve, nor is it a major story at the Winter Meetings. But it is something that all clubs are preparing...

Bryce Stowell (Photo: Lianna Holub)With the Rule 5 approaching, I thought it might be a good time to dust off this old column and take a deeper look at the last few drafts. For this year I am adding a new breakdown where each year we will also look at the highest level each player has reached. I will only count the highest level though if they make eight starts or appear in ten games.
There...

Winter Meetings Rundown: Day 1
Gaby Sanchez (Photo: AP)The Winter Meetings are underway out in Dallas. Teams are very active talking to other teams about potential trades and also talking to agents about potential signings, and already there have been some notable free agent signings such as Jose Reyes signing with the Miami Marlins early this morning. This first day of activity could lead to a flurry of moves the rest of this week.

Carlos Lee (Photo: AP)After reading a few comments about people wondering about Houston Astros outfielder/first baseman Carlos Lee, I thought it might be worth it to do a quick rundown on him as a particular biggish name that could actually be a trade target of the Indians.
Why the Indians should be interested in Lee: He plays outfield and first base, is a right handed hitter, he kills lefties,...
