Indians Prospect Insider

The site is moving from http://indianstopprospects.blogspot.com/ to http://www.indiansprospectinsider.com/.

Why the change?...

It was another interesting year in the Indians farm system in 2008. New prospects have come aboard due to the Casey Black and CC Sabathia deals while some former well regarded prospects have moved on to other organizations.
