Mejia will be a stud.
Have listened to a bunch if his minor league games.

I was talking about so far this spring, as far as being impressed by any of the young guys.

Tribe beats the Swingin' A's (Charley Finley reference) 16-8. Jason Kipnis (remember him?) went 3-for-3 with two HRs and 4 RBI. Danny Shaffer hit a granny. Corey Kluber surrendered a run in 2 IP but struck out 3.

If Kipnis and Brantley stay healthy and give the Tribe their career average production, offense will be among the league's best.

Shaffer is another player I like from listening tot he minor league games.

Refsnyder is the one new guy I am liking a lot and hoping he stays with the organization, most likely Columbus.

Tribe goes split squad and beats the Mariners 4-2 and the Angels 15-3. Kipnis had two more hits. He's smoking hot. Mejia had two hits; he's murdering the ball. Yandy Diaz, Bradley Zimmer and Bobby Bradley are all raking. I'd love to see Yandy break camp with the team but with Napoli's signing, that's iffy. I'm pulling for Zimmer; he showed lots of holes in his swing last year, but he's got beaucoup power and speed. I hope he can fix those holes.

Tyler Naquin has been the forgotten man but he's killing the ball, too. I wouldn't count him out, especially if Brantley opens the season on the DL.

In today's PD, Tito said that he's really pleased with the way Josh Tomlin is throwing the ball.

Was at all the games, this week, great comeback today. Urshella swung a good bat. I know it’s very early, but overall, things look good. Bauer up next, and the weather is warming up, finally !

Tribe gets an 8-7 comeback win over the Dodgers yesterday. Naquin, Bradley and Mejia all with key hits. Few regulars played. Most damage done by young players. Urshela knocked in the game-winner. That's nice but I still don't think he can hit a lick, and I hope he doesn't make the team over Yandy or Eric Gonzalez.

Pretty much starters on Friday, for the 1st 4 or 5, Kip looked good. In the 8th, someone in the Rangers dugout said something to Hanigan. He came out of the squat, dropped a very loud F-Bomb and called to them to “Come On”. It died, at that point, never found out, what it was about, but Hanigan was hot.Saturday, a lot of back ups and AAA,AA players. Tomlin got hammered. EE and Urshella both went deep. After Tomlin, all no name pitchers, and it showed. Great week, hate to go back to snow and ice. Go Tribe.

Indians got creamed 8-1 by the Dodgers today. The lone bright spot was Mike Clevinger. Long Haired Hippie Boy tossed three shutout innings. A Yonder Alonso hit knocked in the only Tribe run.

While I was in Goodyear, the Tribe seemed to be fielding 2 teams. 1 loaded with starters, and the other one with EE, Gomes, Alonzo, the rest being minor leaguers, with the exception of Almonte who would come in around the 7th. This week, it looks like Ramirez has now joined team 2. I saw 5 games, and was very happy with the product. Wish we could find a place for Napoli, but don’t see it happening. Go Tribe !

From what I read last weekend, Francona's invitation to Napoli was a gratuity for Nap's leadership in 2016. Napoli is in Tribe camp for exposure, in hopes that some other interested team will offer him a contract. Nap had been working out at the "free agent camp" in Florida. Supposedly, few scouts have been showing up there.

Still, if he shows he's got anything left, it wouldn't shock me if the Tribe kept Napoli to platoon at first with Alonso.

I think Merritt makes the team as a reliever. He'll be insurance in case a starter gets hurt. God Only Knows when Danny SplitChange will be ready, so the Tribe needs an insurance pitcher.

Kipnis just did it again. A two-run tater in the fourth vs. the Reds. Kipnis now has 6 HR this spring. Tribe leads 5-2. Lindor went yard in the first.

He'll then be out of options, iirc......

Yes, Merritt is out of options. That's why he'll make the team. The Tribe won't risk losing Merritt on waivers. He'll pitch out of the pen until a starter gets dinged up. Right now, he's the sixth starter.

Or they waive him by mid-May and brian demands Francona's termination.

Tribe beat the Dodgers 4-1 last night. Tomlin gave up a dinger to Bellinger but was OK otherwise over 3 2/3. Lindor homered again to tie it in the sixth. Minor leaguer Nellie Rodriguez knocked in two with a single. Great relief work by the Tribe. Starters for both team played into the sixth inning. They're getting stretched out because the regular season is approaching.

I see Tribe has the Nat Central, in Interleague, this year. Cubs are good, Brewers improving, but should be easier than last year when the Nat West was dominant. With the Yanks and Red Sox spending $$$ again this year, glad their visits are short. Glad we’re in the Central, not to long ago the toughest division in the AL, but not anymore.

Tribe tied Padres 8-8 yesterday. Yandy Diaz knocked in five with a granny and an RBI hit his next time up. Yandy has been almost as hot as Kipnis. Indians could have won it but a rookie pitcher yielded a solo HR with two out in the ninth. Clevinger got touched for 3 HRs.

In Friday's 8-5 win over the Rockies, Kluber K'd seven. Kipnis remained hot by going 3-for-3. Yan Gomes homered. He's having a good spring. Bobby Bradley added a couple of hits. Most Indians are still hitting well, both regulars and minor leaguers.

Tribe blew a lead and lost to the Brew Crew despite a leadoff homer by Lindor, a triple by Kipnis, three great IP by Carrasco and a triple play. Another rookie pitcher blew a two-run lead with two out and nobody on in the ninth.

But the Tribe's split squad beat the Royals 3-1. Ryan Merritt tossed two scoreless for the win. Bobby Bradley had a couple of hits.

Indians beat the Rangers 4-2. Trevor Bauer gave up 2 runs in 5 IP for the win. Trevor Drone K'd 8. Bradley Zimmer hit his first HR of the spring.
