Around the Farm - May 11, 2012
It was a quiet night in the Indians farm system. Sure, all four teams were in action, but the results from the night were not very good as three of the four teams lost and there were few standout hitting and pitching performances. One standout hitting performance came from Carlos Moncrief, and Tony discusses him and several others in the IPI morning staple "Around the Farm".

Would the Real Shin-Soo Choo Please Stand Up?
Is there a more polarizing figure on the Cleveland Indians right now than outfielder Shin-Soo Choo? Ubaldo Jimenez has gotten most of the attention as Most Disappointing Indian, but Choo has been just as disappointing, if not more. Steve Orbanek wonders if the old Choo from 2008-2010 will surface this season, or if the one from 2011 and at the start of the season is what we will get.
