Minor Happenings: Ramirez earns high praise from Indians
The minor league season may be over, but there is no end in sight for Minor Happenings or the minor league coverage here on the IPI. In this week’s Minor Happenings, Tony takes a look at the emergence of Low-A Lake County second baseman Jose Ramirez and what kind of prospect he really is, the strong finish from Lake County catcher Jake Lowery, and the good year but unfortunate injury to short season Single-A Mahoning Valley lefty Geoff Davenport. As always, he has lots of quotes on players like Matt Langwell, Carlos Moncrief, Matt Packer and others provided by the front office, and lots more.

While many people view the Indians situation at the moment as a complete train wreck, Adam McGavin tries to look past the darkness and find some light to shine on a bleak situation. In his first part of a two-part article, he says that any positive vibe should start with a strong group of players up the middle of the diamond and some key trade pieces that could bring in a few players that could help now and in the future.

A four-week talent show
With their record at 58-79, the Indians have become difficult to watch for many fans. With only 25 games left to play, interest in the Tribe seems to be waning each day. However, IPI's Steve Orbanek suggests that fans should look at these final 25 games in a different light to find some possible enjoyment.

Around the Farm: September 5, 2012

Not one, but TWO first round draft picks scored four of the five runs for the Captains. Find out who...after the jump...

Second Thoughts: Game #136: Indians 3, Tigers 2
Things did not look good for the Indians Tuesday night. It had been nearly a month since the Tribe has last won back-to-back games and nearly three months since the team won back-to-back games on the road. Plus, after losing 29 of their last 25 games, who could favor the Indians anyhow? Yet, somehow the Indians won and improved their record to 9-5 against the Tigers this season. Steve Orbanek offers some second thoughts on what went wrong and right for the Tribe in this one.
