Swisher makes visit to Cleveland facilities
As you read this, outfielder Nick Swisher is on a plane out of Cleveland. The free agent outfielder was in town today and visited Indians facilities as the team continues to pursue his services. A standing offer is apparently on the table for Swisher, so these next few days could become quite interesting.

Site update: IPI name change coming
As some of you may have seen in a tweet I sent out last week, Indians Prospect Insider will soon be no more. No, it is not closing up shop and going away. Instead, this site will become Indians Baseball Insider. We are going from the IPI to the IBI, and the change should occur sometime between now and the next two weeks. Tony explains why the change was made and what it means for the site.

With the 2012 season for the big league team and the minor league teams now in the rear view mirror, we wanted to give a quick site update letting readers know what is on tap here at IPI the next several months. The focus has shifted to the action in all the offseason fall and winter leagues, news and opinion articles on the big league team relating to their coaching pursuit, free agency moves, the winter meetings, the Rule 5 Draft, etc, and of course tons of information on the farm system.

Another minor league season has wrapped up and summer is turning into fall here at the IPI. Once Akron and Lake County end their playoff run the 2012 season will officially end, but Tony explains how there is no offseason for a site that covers the Cleveland Indians from the big leagues to the minors. He provides an update on all of the activities that the IPI will be involved in this fall and winter, and the tons of coverage that is to come this offseason.

This season, on the IPI...
Now that opening day is here, I felt this would be a great time to quickly list all of the things coming this season on the IPI. A preview of all the articles, features, and shows that will be on the site. We will have everything covered from the minors to the big leagues, and there is absolutely no other place you need to go for your minor league information.

Answering some subscription questions
Some people have expressed some frustrations today with the new subscription feature, be it because of the new subscription fee to read certain articles or because they are having trouble creating an account. I’m posting this to hopefully help explain the reasoning for the change to a subscription-based site and also help steer people to the proper way of signing up.

A week ago John Sickels unveiled his Indians’ list, and I believe today Baseball Prospectus unveils theirs.
