Sever set to change Cleveland opinion on Elway name
When the Indians drafted Joe Sever, few knew that his uncle was none other than John Elway. Talk about being behind the eight-ball in Cleveland. That hasn't stopped Sever from starting his career off in grand fashion at Mahoning Valley, as he's hitting over .300, and recently finished second in the NY/Penn home run derby. The only question remaining is whether or not Sever can make it to Cleveland, and change Cleveland opinions on the Elway family.

Fishing For Mudcats: "I expect nothing, and got it"
The Mudcats entered week #19 at a pivotal point. The team was certainly not in contention for a playoff spot, but if they wanted to be more than just a waystation for prospects, they needed to move now. Instead, they played .500 baseball again, wasting perhaps the biggest week for any Mudcats player offensively during the entire season. The Muddies also bid adieu to Jesus Aguilar, who is heading to greener pastures...Let's Get Fishing...

Around the Farm: August 17, 2012
For much of the year, Danny Salazar has been held to a very strict pitch count. Fresh off of Tommy John surgery, the Indians obviously want to be cautious of the young right-hander's innings count. On Friday, however, Salazar might have just pitched his best start yet. Plus, Thomas Neal continues to annihilate Double-A pitching. All this and more as IPI's Steve Orbanek takes you Around the Farm after the jump.

Sisco dominates but settles for no-decision in Scrappers' loss
For a while, it seemed like an otherwise mundane Friday night was going to be a special night. Maybe even a perfect night. The weather was near perfect; mid-seventies, clear with a nice breeze. The atmosphere was near perfect, helped by a small but vibrant Eastwood Field crowd. And the game was…near perfect, at least for one man.
