Around the Farm: July 17, 2012
Jared Goedert continues to do everything offensively you could want from a minor leaguer, and plays multiple positions. Cody Allen continues to dominate at a high level...well...at every level. T.J. House continued his comeback story in grand fashion this season. The top spot of ATF goes to a kid who has completely forgot about the month of April, when several questioned whether or not he was even a legit prospect. Check out just WHO that is, after the jump...

Second Thoughts: Game #89 - Indians 3, Rays 2
The Indians won a close one last night over the Rays, 3-2. The game was a lot closer than it should of been as the Indians blew several opportunities to add to an early 3-0 lead and put the game well out of reach, and then they held on for dear life late to get the win. With two tough Rays' lefties looming in the next three games last night was an important win to get, and Adam McGavin gives his "second thoughts" on the game...

Around the Farm: July 16, 2012
Todd Hankins had a first for ATF tonight. He's the first guy to get into the top three without playing in the field, and without getting an at bat. Chris Seddon got into the top three tonight by pitching a perfect game through six innings before giving up his first hit. The top guy got in for just dominating over the past couple of months in Akron...and without ever being thought of as a top prospect. Find out who that is, after the jump...
