Indians stepping up social media initiative

In addition to the linked video, both Shapiro (@MarkShapiro) and Antonetti (@IndiansGM) are now on twitter. While I don't expect either to break any news via their accounts, I do expect them to be somewhat insightful and not a ghost account tweeted by an intern. H/T to @craigcalcaterra on the video. Update: Calcaterra details all the above at HardballTalk.

There is something serendipitous about Austin Kearns being signed to a a minor-league deal by Cleveland GM Mark Shapiro. Both have long been admired for their potential, but both are widely perceived (at least in certain circles) as disappointments. Despite that perception (which is surely at least somewhat grounded in reality), both have had their moments -- Cleveland's 2007 ALCS run, Kearns' 2002, 2006, and 2007 seasons. By signing Kearns and Shelley Duncan to virtually no-risk, minor-league contracts, is Shapiro showing he's still capable of smart moves? Let's see what Kearns and Duncan have to offer.

If your world is crumbling around you and the earth shakes, do you feel it?

Considering what the Indians' early failures means to Mark Shapiro in a broad context-how he has changed his approach and how that changes how we perceive him.
