As part of the three-part assignment given by Bill Ivie at BaseballDigest.com, my off-season outlook appears on the BBD site here: http://www.baseballdigest.com/2011/12/01/bd-off-season-outlook-cleveland-indians/
The third article in the series will appear in the spring as I'll take a look at the upcoming season based on the players ready to take the field at the time.
For this most recent writing, however, I believe Beau Mills has the highest potential impact for the team, presuming he'll come up from the minors to help out at first. As I state in the piece, he could actually take the first base position depending on what the Tribe does there. I think he has been flying just under the radar but is about to bust loose. Whether for the Tribe or not, Mills is one to watch in 2012.
Under the generosity of Mr. Ivie, the writers participating in this 3-part project have also been invited to write other guest pieces for BaseballDigest Online. As always, if something I write gets published there, I'll be sure to share!
