When the Indians traded Jhonny Peralta on Wednesday night it left a wide open competition for the vacant third base position on the team.
While top rated prospect Lonnie Chisenhall is expected to become the everyday guy there by the end of next season, the Indians have a need to fill the position in the short term, hence why the likes of Luis Valbuena, Jayson Nix, and Andy Marte will get some...

The Scrapperbook: Week Six
As the old saying goes, "When it rains, it pours," and that was exactly the case for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers this week. Amazingly, for as bad of a season as they've had to this point, attendance for home games ranks exactly middle of the pack in the league, averaging about 3,134 per game. With that, I'd like to thank all the great fans who continue to support this team win or lose. Hopefully...
