Swing Starters: Is Drew Stubbs primed for a comeback year?
On the night the Indians traded Shin-Soo Choo to the Reds for a deal that included Trevor Bauer and Drew Stubbs, the IBI's Michael Hattery was elated with the Bauer acquisition but did not know what to thing of the Stubbs pick up. After some time to think about it, one thing struck him as interesting, that being they were two high ceiling players being given up on by their draft teams a little too soon and that Stubbs could be in for a comeback season.

Spring Training Game #32: A's 7, Indians 6
The Indians brought out the minor leaguers on Tuesday after they got blasted on Monday night, and while they lost the game 7-6 to the A's, top prospect Francisco LIndor put on a defensive display. Zach McAllister scuffled a bit, but Chris Perez returned and looked pretty nasty. The Indians lost the game, but if there ever was a game in which I was left impressed after a loss, this was it.

IBI Power Poll: AL Central Division Winner?
The Cleveland Indians have made dramatic improvements over the offseason, which turned what likely would have been a lost year into one of curiosity. The Detroit Tigers remain loaded, and may have the three best players in the American League, let alone the AL Central, and the Kansas City Royals have the most talent, and could be ready to take a Tampa Bay Rays-type move from a few years ago. I haven't even mentioned the White Sox or the Twins yet. Who wins the division?

2013 Minor League Spring Game Recap:  March 24th
Roberto Perez was the star of the show in the AAA/AA game, belting a pair of home runs, while driving in three. The great Delvi Cid also managed a perfect three-hit performance. In the single A game, Dillon Howard pitched three pretty solid innings, and hopefully gained a bit of momentum heading into the 2013 season. With many pondering the term bust already, Howard needs to show some continuity this year to regain traction in the system. Join Arthur Kinney with Sunday's minor league wrap.

Spring Training Game #30:  Cubs 4, Indians 3
Ubaldo Jimenez took the hill on Sunday afternoon for the Cleveland Indians in one of his last outings before the Indians break for camp at the end of the week. Jimenez was nothing short of spectacular in the outing, and while it's hard to look too much into a spring training start, it was good to see Jimenez do something good for a change.
