Hot Stove to kick off quietly for Tribe
Veteran starter among needs, but money remains tight
CLEVELAND -- Free agency officially begins at 12:01 a.m. ET on Friday.Don't expect any alarm clocks to go off in the Indians' front office at that time. This figures to be a quiet Hot Stove season for a Tribe team that made plenty of noise at the Trade Deadline in July. If the Indians do become players in the free-agent market, they'll likely be late players, looking to scoop up some discounts on lower-profile guys.
