Smith is finishing strong at end of long minor league season
One of the most common sayings in sports is it’s not how you start, but how you finish.

After a slow start he has come on of late and is putting up another good season, and the IBI's Zachary Francis recently caught up with him to see how his season has gone.

Second Thoughts Game #130: Indians 3, Twins 1
It doesn’t matter how ugly it may be, a win is always a win no matter how you look at it. Except for one swing of the bat by right-handed hitter Drew Stubbs and the arm of left-handed starter Scott Kazmir, things weren't so pretty even on a picture perfect day at Progressive Field. Despite a season-high four errors in the ballgame, the Tribe squeezed past the Twins late, 3-1, to win the three-game series over Minnesota.

A three year Indians review: Center Field
The last position for the three year review is centerfield. This was the hardest position to look at for Jeff Ellis because it was supposed to have been set with Grady Sizemore.
