Is There A Mole In The Red Sux Organization?

Do you remember John Farrell? In addition to being drafted by the Indians and spending a few years pitching for the Tribe, he has also been Cleveland’s Farm Director since 2001. Until this year, that is, when Terry Francona hired John to be Boston’s pitching coach. As a former director of our minor league system,

ALCS Game 6 Saturday, October 20, 2007 Fenway Park – Boston, Massachusetts Fausto Carmona vs Curt Schilling 8:00 PM EST I’m not going to break this thing down with any kind of statistical analysis or anything like that.

Will You Be Watching?

And Do You Care Who Wins? As I was flipping through the stations last night trying to decide what to watch next, I happened to flip by the World Series. It took me 0.4 seconds, record time, to flip away from FOX. No way could I watch that. It was way too soon (not to

A Little Perspective

I’ve Got Your Perspective Right Here… The Plain Dealer’s Bill Livingston wrote a nice piece this week about Paul Byrd and his reaction to Eric Wedge’s confidence in him. The article talks a little bit about how and why Byrd developed his old school windup style. It also talks about Byrd’s fearless approach to facing

Game 5 Reflections and Game 6 Thoughts

The End Is The Beginning Is The End I will not overreact…I will not overreact…I will not overreact. Ok, last night was a little tough to swallow. I had nothing but confidence we were going to take care of business. It didn’t happen. And you know what? That’s ok. Like our buddy Manny being Manny

Rally Killer No More!!!9:50 pm – Jhonny Peralta has put away the Rally-Killer title, for the time being, with a magnificent 3-run homer in the top of the 4th. Carmona has lookeda little sharper here in the bottom of the 4th, but his pitch count is becoming an issue. Not sure I’m too thrilled to

Cavaliers Preview Game #38

Cleveland Cavaliers (19-18) vs Memphis Grizzlies (10-27) FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tennessee Tuesday, January 15, 2008 8:00 PM I feel like I’ve been neglecting the Cavaliers this season.

R.I.P. Jacob’s Field (1994-2007)

Progressive Field To Open In 2008 Ok, so it’s still the same beautiful structure. But in what I can only describe as a tragically sad decision, the Cleveland Indians have sold the naming rights to Jacob’s Field to Progressive Insurance. In 2008, the Indians will play their games in….gulp….Progressive Field. Hoynsie has the story in

Savage Signings

Browns GM Says Extensions Coming Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported today that GM Phil Savage is working on a contract extension for head coach Romeo Crennel (is it just me, or does Mary Kay seem to be much more on the ball than Tony Grossi these days?). There was no mention

Browns O-Lineman Heading To Hawaii The Cleveland Browns’ rookie sensation, left tackle Joe Thomas has been served a bit of justice.

Here’s To Hoping The Senator Can Repeat This Image And Erase Last Year’s Image When I started this blog, I made the very difficult decision to just stick to professional sports. It wasn’t that I loved Cleveland sports teams more than my alma mater’s sports teams. Rather, it was an issue of time. I wanted

Give Us Something To Talk About

Dealing With The Quiet Period In Cleveland Sports Lets face reality. You can only say ‘the Cavaliers are a fatally flawed team’ so many different ways.

New Year For The Browns Too

Browns Look To Build On 2007 To Bring Success In 2008 Well, it’s hard to believe it has come to this. I wasn’t expecting to write this column so soon. I expected the Browns to have at least one game in 2008. But alas, (no) thanks to Jim Sorgi’s shortcomings as a QB, the Browns

Looking For Clues To The 2008 Cleveland Browns Ok, first things first….no, I am NOT writing off the 2007 Browns season.
