Antonetti: "We need to improve upon a higher standard."

CLEVELAND -- With the Indians at .500 at the All-Star Break, they are still in that limbo state between being a buyer or seller at the trade deadline.

7/13 Recap: Bauer & Gomes Power Tribe to Close, Comeback Win

Roster Update: As if there weren’t enough obstacles in Jason Giambi’s way to return to the Majors (like the fact that the Indians have about 40 players better than him in their minor league system), there is now another. The aged slugger has been moved to the 60 Day DL, presumably because he is not very good and the Indians don’t want to release, but officially with right knee...

Prospect Stock: Prospects 19-11

19. RHP Michael Clevinger – Rising.  His stock had nowhere to go but up after missing an entire year due to rehab from Tommy John surgery.  Clevinger still comes fully loaded with the four-pitch mix that made him an interesting prospect in the Angels system, and so far between A Ball and Advanced A ball, Clevinger has shown very impressive numbers.  The year after TJ surgery...

OJTB: Yankees Sneak Past Angels in Rubber Game

Is it too early to freak out about the Angels bullpen? ☆

I had hoped to be able to retire the Bullpen of Perpetual Sorrow moniker this year, but through two games, that hope has been dashed against the rocks. Kevin Jepsen was terrible. Nick Maronde was awful. Michael Kohn got victimized by the long ball. Fernando Salas sharted the bed in high leverage. It’s all bad. Every single part of it. But it is only two games. We are obviously...

Top 10 Angels minor league developments from spring training

Keeping up with the minor leagues can be a daunting task for any fan.  In truth, there are a lot of talented players but few that will ever be major leaguers and even fewer who will be productive major leaguers.  As you’ve no doubt been told, the Angels minor league system ranks among the worst in baseball.  I disagree with this assessment, but I’m also a homer.  I think...
