While the San Francisco Giants are dominating the World Series, the other 28 teams still have jobs to do. Today, the Indians outrighted Hector Ambriz, Chris Gimenez, and Anthony Reyes. Reyes and Gimenez can become free agents, and from what I have heard they will go that route. All three of these guys disappointed this year, and this is not a surprising move as some of our younger guys are looking to get spots on the 40 man roster.

Baseball America thinks that the Indians had the best 2010 draft! (link requires Baseball America account.) Without going into too much deal, I don't want to break copyright rules, they state the best five players for many categories, fastest runner, best power hitter etc. The Indians weren't very represented in each category but had a few guys there. Baseball America's draft report card (link, account required again) really shows how much they like Pomeranz. Looks like the future looks bright in Cleveland!

Turns out it was mostly a translation/editing problem by the Korean Times. According to Jeeho Yoo via Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer, Choo was just envious of the playoff teams but said he wants to stay with a club for a long time, preferably Cleveland. That is good news for the Tribe.

According to Yoon Chul of the Korea Times, Shin-Soo Choo wants to move to a contender. This directly contradicts past statements by Choo and new GM Chris Antonetti. The Tribe wants him here, the fans want him here, there is no reason he doesn't get a huge extension. This is definitely a story to watch heading into the off season.
