Here are some Tribe links to get you over your Wednesday:
Some good news on the farm from WFNY, as the Clippers are now a half-game back of second place. Carlos Carrasco pitched well, fully expect to see him up here in September, with hopefully better results.
More WFNY, as they do their weekly Da Clip Show feature. Great for catching up on the week that was for the Columbus Clippers.
This was over the weekend, but I feel it’s worth re-linking, as Anthony Castrovince FINALLY reveals to us what music each Indians player plays when they come up to bat or in to pitch. Most of the music is turrible.
More Castrovince, this time on Carlos Santana. Amazing that he’s out for the season and he’s still one of the most intriguing players on the team.
Paul at The DiaTribe does his usual Wednesday post. It focuses mostly on Hafner, and whether or not the Indians need to look for a platoon mate for Pronk at the DH position.
Tony at Indians Prospect Insider takes a look at some of the happenings in the minor league system. Tony does his homework, and it’s really quite impressive. Highly recommend his site.
One more from WFNY, about the Indians recent draft coup. I’m really excited that the Indians were so aggressive with this draft class. Hopefully someone pans out.
Finally, a touching story from Castrovince about five-year-old Luke Holko, who was struck by a foul ball by Ben Carlson, who played for the Mahoning Valley Scappers at the time. Luke is recovering, and Castrovince does a great job at showing how Carlson has connected with the family. Great read, and kudos to Castrovince for writing it.
