Shapiro Already Talkin’ About The Hot Stove

Peralta To Stay At Shortstop I talked a little earlier this week about some of the changes I thought we could expect to see in the 2008 version of the Tribe. Yesterday, Mark Shapiro spoke to the press about some of those changes. He pretty much talked about all the main points that I mentioned,

Finding Favor In The Brownies

NFL Analysts Pleased With Browns’ Direction So the baseball season is over, and the basketball season has yet to begin. That leaves us with just our beloved Brownies playing real games right now.

LeBron Speaks Out

Trouble In Happy Waters? LeBron James doesn’t seem particularly happy these days. It would be nice if he was just cranky still because his beloved Yanks fell to the Tribe in the playoffs this year, but unfortunately for us all, there’s some actual merit to his gripes. I said last week it would be interesting

Danny Ferry’s Game Of Chicken

Whose Side Are You On?? The more and more I read about this upcoming Cavaliers season, the more and more I find reasons to be skeptical. Namely, LeBron’s reaction to Danny Ferry’s game of chicken he’s playing with Anderson Varejao worries me. LeBron is perceived as a loyal teammate, and that loyalty may be put

Many People Saw Us Lose

Small Market, Big Stage We always hear a lot of talk about the small market Indians. I guess that’s true, I mean, there’s no denying what our payroll looks like ($61.29 million) and where it ranks (23rd in the majors). I just always find it kind of funny because I don’t remember a lot of

2007 Recap… First, the obvious. The ’06-07 season was a miraculous season. It was way better than I think any of us imagined it would be, and I think it raised all of our collective expectations as to what this team and LeBron in particular can accomplish. Unfortunately, the season came crashing to a halt

Where We’ve Been And Where We’ve Yet To Go

Where We’ve Been…     Looking back on Game 4 of the ALCS last night, I really feel like that game reinforced everything I’ve felt about this team since the playoffs began. That performance is exactly what this Indians offense is. They may not be the best lineup in baseball, but on any given night,

Manny Being Manny

I Am Moron, Hear Me Roar!!! If you listen to ESPN Radio’s morning show, Mike & Mike In The Morning with Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, you would have heard an awful lot of talk about Manny Ramirez the last couple days. Normally, I tend to agree more with Golic than Greeny, and you would

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,

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.
