Cutler to Cleveland Doesn’t Make Sense

Sometimes the Browns talk around here gets a little silly, I will admit.  While I am not going to participate in a moratorium, I can’t help but take some of the over-coverage of the Browns this off-season to heart.  As a result, I will try not to go too long on this whole thing, but

Indians Spring Training: Lewis Gets Roughed Up

Obviously we keep coming back to the same concerns when we talk about the prospects for this year’s Indians club.  Well, that is when we aren’t talking about David Dellucci and TD’s collection of voodoo dolls.  Scott Lewis was named the fifth starter over Aaron Laffey.  Awesome.  The kid showed some amazing stuff at the

U.S. Executes Improbable Comeback to Tie El Salvador

We don’t really talk soccer or futbol here much, but I happened to catch last night’s qualifier between the U.S. and El Salvador in an away match last night.  Like all games that the U.S. plays on the road, the environment is terrifying.  Think if you taught Oakland Raiders fans and the Dawg Pound how

“Hines Ward” Rule Added to NFL

I know it is a source of pride for a lot of Steelers fans that their smiling wide receiver Hines Ward blocks like a maniac.  I honestly wish Browns wide receivers cared about blocking downfield.  Still, it seems to me that a lot of Ward’s greatest hits are based on hunting for guys who aren’t

Carmona Looking to Avenge 2008

While we have all been thinking hard about the Indians’ rotation this Spring, Fausto Carmona has been dealing.  The guy who my wife felt so sorry for as he failed as a closer in Boston, came back and became a respectable starter in 2007.  2008 he took a step back other than pounding Gary Sheffield’s

Chris Cooley Doesn’t Hate Cleveland, Has Funny Way of Showing It

Chris Cooley is more heavily involved with Browns fans right now than anyone who is working in Berea.  Cooley came under fire from Browns fans in the know when he posted this on his blog. Trade talk is a weird wake up at 6:30.  Obviously something was said between teams to cause this internet trading

Browns Average Age Increases With Patten Signing

Do you guys remember eight years ago when David Patten played here?  I barely remember it, honestly.  Yesterday the Browns inked a 34-year old wide receiving insurance policy.  Patten spent the last two seasons in New Orleans, but in 2008 Patten only suited up five times for the Saints; he caught 11 passes last year before injuring his

Lebron James Records Seventh NBA Player of the Week Award

For all those Jim Rome fans out there, it might be time to drop a “freaking” on Lebron James.  Lebron Freaking James has recorded his seventh player of the week award.  It is also his second in a row.  Does that sound like the league’s MVP to you?  It sure does to me.  The Cavaliers’

If Browns Can’t Trade Down they Should Sit and Wait

If the Browns can’t trade down, maybe they should just pass for a while and then pick later.  This is the conclusion that I am aiming to prove.  Now, I know that isn’t really the proper way to go about doing analysis.  Still, this is the burgeoning philosophy that has been forming in my brain

Cavs Kind of Roll Through Hawks

(Cavs 102 – Hawks 96 box) The Cavs smashed the Hawks something fierce.  In the first half, anyway.  The Cavs held the Hawks to 35 points in the first half.  That is some good defense.  It is also some bad offense, but in the case of the Cavs at home, I won’t take anything away

Tim Legler Didn’t Earn His Paycheck Today

With analysis like this, you need a courtesy flush and plenty of TP.  And no, TP isn’t the bizarro universe love child of TD and DP.  Anyway, Legler “contributed” to the Daily Dime today with the prediction that the Cavs were going to get the top seed in the East.  That makes me happy, but

Shaun Rogers a No-Show for Offseason Workout Program

I don’t know if you have heard, but apparently Eric Mangini and Shaun Rogers have some problems?  Well, it is less than encouraging that according to reports that Shaun Rogers decided not to show up for this week’s offseason workout program.  While the program is not mandatory, it seems that everyone was strongly encouraged to

Unnamed Sources Say Stallworth Was Over Legal Limit

Behind the scenes at WFNY we debated not posting this because it is rumor and speculation wrapped in unnamed sources.  Then again, given the places that we have read this, the cat is pretty much out of the proverbial bag on this one anyway. The news comes via WSVN-Fox by way of the Miami Herald.

March Madness for Ohio

As we all know, the annual March Madness college basketball tourney starts today.  I thought I would take this opportunity to run down all the reasons that college football is broken with the BCS and how they could use a tournament like this to close out their season. Just kidding. I am going to run

NFL Free Agency: Jason Wright is Gone

While the Browns have been signing a lot of players for depth, they lost one of their depth pieces in the offensive backfield.  Jason Wright has signed on with the Arizona Cardinals.  The word from John Clayton is that Wright will be expected to back up Tim Hightower in addition to potentially being a third

Another Reminder that Sports are Meaningless

Every now and then we get a big story coming across the wire that re-centers us.  When I lived up in Boston during college it was the murder of the “hockey dad” by the another parent.  Then yesterday I read about a soccer player that was shot in the head, apparently, while attempting to score

Have You Heard About This Carl Pavano Guy?

The Indians have a new pitcher this season named Carl Pavano.  Apparently he played for the Yankees last.  He was talked about extensively as a bust in Joe Torre’s book.  He has had numerous health problems that kept him off the field AFTER he signed a big contract to play in the Bronx.  Anyway, I
