2013 Draft: Top 7 Profiles and an early mock
We are roughly eight months away from the 2013 Draft, but with the Indians securing the #5 pick in the draft next year IPI draft guru Jeff Ellis put together an early piece profiling the top seven players at the moment that are available in next year's draft. Things will certainly change with that top listing, but several of these players could be options for the Indians as they look to add more talent to an already improving farm system.

Tribe Happenings: Francona brings leadership, credibility
In Tony's weekly notebook he takes a look at how Terry Francona and Sandy Alomar were both very good managerial candidates, but how Francona was the right choice as the new manager of the Cleveland Indians.

Around the Farm: Instructs October 5th, 2012
Another day of Instructs, that actually took a bit of a backseat to the news of Terry Francona taking over the reigns of the Cleveland Indians. With that said, pitching really took the forefront, as Dylan Baker continued to absolutely dominate the Instructs. Grant Sides is perched to make the same type of move as Cody Allen. How good were they? Join Jim Pete after the jump to find out...

Terry Francona may be a done deal
Terry Francona came into town on Friday to interview for the Cleveland Indians job. What initially seemed like a ploy for another player (or in this case, a manager) to use the Indians to get a better job and more money has turned into a legitimate opportunity for a big-time Indians hire. Is the Francona hire a formality, or will the job ultimately go to Sandy Alomar? Find out if it even matters, after the jump...
