While We’re Waiting… MLB Free Agents, Dick Jauron and his D, and Gilbert Giveaways

While We’re Waiting serves as the early morning gathering of WFNY-esque information for your viewing pleasure. Have something you think we should see? Send it to our tips email at

We’re all hoping the Tribe will be at least minor players in the free agent market this offseason for either a first baseman or an outfielder, if not both. Jeff Passan at Yahoo! compiled this list of MLB free agents ranked 1-182.

Jamison Hensley at ESPN’s AFC North Blog asks if the Browns are done with Peyton Hillis. My guess? Yes, it’s only a matter of time. What a sad, sad sequence of events, “Barring a major turnaround in behavior and performance, the Browns are prepared to let Hillis go elsewhere when he becomes a free agent at the end of this season, sources told The Plain Dealer. “It’s one thing after another, and what’s been out there isn’t even the half of it,” the source told the paper. ” [AFC North Blog]

Chris Pokorny at Dawgs by Nature recapped what Browns defensive coordinator Dick Jauron had to say in the wake of the San Francisco loss and looking ahead to this week. He talks about D’Qwell Jackson on the goal line stand, “The goal line stand was really a huge play for us, just to keep us in that ball game.  Everybody did their job up front to start it off.  They kept their pads down so we weren’t moving backwards into the linebackers.  It allowed D’Qwell, Chris (Gocong), Kaluka (Maiava) and Scott (Fujita) to get across the line, to play on the other side and in the back field.  D’Qwell made a couple of plays.  Chris made a hit. Rub (Ahtyba Rubin) made a big play down there too.  The whole line again, doing their job underneath  those guys.” [Dawgs by Nature]

Tony Lastoria at IPI keeps us up to date on how the Tribe prospects fared in the fall/winter leagues.

Finally, just for fun, if you missed it, Brian Wilson was on College Gameday yesterday. Hilarity ensued. [Big League Stew]
