There is no vertical alignment property in text frames (unlike InDesign and Quark XPress). One way around this is to have a series of paragraph formats that use Frame Above Paragraph settings that serve to push the text to the bottom of the text frame.
Here is an example: let's say your text frames always have a maximum of three lines. You would always make the text frames the same height, which is tall enough to hold three lines. You would have three separate paragraph formats: 1_line, 2_line, and 3_line. 3_line would be applied to paragraphs that take all three lines in the text frame. These paragraphs would have no Frame Above. 2_line would be applied to paragraphs that take up two lines in the text frame. It's FrameAbove would be a 1-line high reference frame that would force the 2 lines to the bottom of the text frame. 1_line would be for single line paragraphs, and it would contain a 2-line high reference frame for its FrameAbove setting. If you find this too cumbersome, you could use FrameScript to devise a more automated solution. Or, even if you use the multiple-paragraph format solution that I have outlined, you could have a script automatically apply the correct format based on the number of lines.
