IBI Power Poll: AL Central Division Winner?
The Cleveland Indians have made dramatic improvements over the offseason, which turned what likely would have been a lost year into one of curiosity. The Detroit Tigers remain loaded, and may have the three best players in the American League, let alone the AL Central, and the Kansas City Royals have the most talent, and could be ready to take a Tampa Bay Rays-type move from a few years ago. I haven't even mentioned the White Sox or the Twins yet. Who wins the division?

2013 Minor League Spring Game Recap:  March 24th
Roberto Perez was the star of the show in the AAA/AA game, belting a pair of home runs, while driving in three. The great Delvi Cid also managed a perfect three-hit performance. In the single A game, Dillon Howard pitched three pretty solid innings, and hopefully gained a bit of momentum heading into the 2013 season. With many pondering the term bust already, Howard needs to show some continuity this year to regain traction in the system. Join Arthur Kinney with Sunday's minor league wrap.
