2013 MLB Draft: Mock Draft 3.0 - Final Edition
It is draft day and IBI draft guru Jeff Ellis has his final mock, this time going out through the first 111 picks! He not only predicts who the Indians select at #5 overall, but who they take in the third and fourth round as well. As with any mock, these are more for just a guideline on where players may be picked and not necessarily by who, but Jeff has done the research and knows the draft better than anyone not affiliated with an MLB team. Take a look and enjoy!

Around The Farm: June 5, 2013
Baseball is a game of adjustments. The pitcher decides to throw a curveball after the batter hit his last fastball for a home run; a batter moves up in the box expecting an off-speed pitch; a shortstop moves toward second base because the batter has a knack for hitting the ball right back up the middle; any of these little shifts can change the outcome of a game. Sometimes players make big adjustments and it seems to lead to a breakthrough. To find out who might have made such a breakthrough and all you need to know about Wednesday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.
