Minor League BABIP and Yan Gomes

A look at how minor league BABIP tends to translate into MLB.

Ryan Freel Dies

Apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Not CLE related, but definitely baseball news.

Indians Sign C. Hunter, M. Carson: AAA OF Depth

+

Cedric Hunter has just a handful of MLB ABs and is 24. Matt Carson looks like an aging AAAA journeyman.

Final Vote Off

Sorry for the delay, it was a long weekend of helping a good friend move out of state and watching the Indians flounder. Looks like a new avatar will be well timed.

Avatar Bet: The Losing End of a Foolish Gamble

Like a fool bent on certain destruction, I placed a wager on the body of Grady Sizemore in 2009. You know, those legs that currently aren't responding. The wager: my avatar.

Omar to head for retirement

Surprised nobody had linked this up yet. Wonder which organization he might land in as a coach.

Keith Law questions Indians Draft Day 1

35

Insider content. "This started somewhat poorly with the overdraft of Tyler Naquin (1), a plus runner who should hit (albeit without power) but does have to prove he can play center field, since Texas A&M was busy with the 80-run, 20-hit Krey Bratsen out there. However, Cleveland rolled the dice on more ceiling with their next three picks, high school arms Mitch Brown (2) and personal favorite Kieran Lovegrove (3) as well as raw high school athlete D'Vone McClure (3)."

Joe Smith involed in bar incident, no charges filed

Looks like Joe ran into one of those people who doesn't attend Indians games.

Grady to resume baseball activities

via Bastian, pending regularly scheduled setback.

SBN Interview - Death at the Ballpark

Seems like the book might be good read.

Travis Hafner: 2012 MLB Leader

7

Hit Tracker Online has Pronk's homer on Sunday measured out at 481 feet in "True Distance." That makes it the longest of his career or at least since 2006, where HTO's records start. video

We traded Paul Hoynes for cash considerations, so this will be Paul's last day in camp. We actually paid cash.

Chisenhall and LaPorta to AAA

via Bastian. This makes Jack Hannahan your starting third baseman for the start of the 2012 season.

Negro League Stats Go Live

5

B-Ref launches Negro League stats from 1903-1948. Rob Neyer writes about it.

Fauxberto's contract restructured

24
Also. Suppose Fauxberto had no problem with this, now that the kickback to the Carmona family is gone.

Burnett traded to Pirates, finally

18

Looks to be a pretty good deal for the Pirates. They don't lose any major prospects and NY covers more than half of Burnett's remaining salary.

WFNY talks with Rosenhaus

5

Some interesting tidbits on Choo, Asdrubal and the Dolans.

Perez, Indians reach deal

13

Perez will received a base of $2.005 million with the ability to receive another $25,000 in incentives.

Nationals pick up Durbin

8

Minor league deal.

Tribe Avoids Arbitration for Hannahan

46

One year, no word on monetary value as of yet.

Indians still in on Cespedes

29

As per Dionisio Soldevila. WFNY points out that the Yankees seem to be out because of the asking price, so it makes you wonder if the Indians will remain "in" much longer.

Adam Everett named Special Assistant to Baseball Operations

4

"The former big leaguer will be in uniform during Spring Training, providing infield instruction and filling other roles at both the Major and Minor League levels."

Grady Engaged

57

Congrats to Grady. We raise our glasses, or mugs, in your honor.

Arizona Signs Kubel

31

2yr/$15 million. Have to wonder if Parra becomes available. Not very exciting at the plate, but showed huge improvement last year in getting on base and is excellent in the field.

Sandy staying put

20

Looks like Sandy Alomar will end up being the Indians bench coach after all. Good to have him around for another year at least.
