Cavs Take Care of Depleted Spurs

Cavs 97, Spurs 86 (Box Score) So many times this season, I have been so caught up in the Cavs’ injury issues that I sometimes forget that the teams the Cavs get to play are rarely at full strength either.  Such was the case last night with the San Antonio Spurs.  I was still pondering

Andy Marte Needs to Become the Next Cliff Lee

Andy Marte was never supposed to be like this.  When Marte joined the Cleveland Indians he was 22 years old.  He was thought to be a lock for a major league roster someday.  He was voted the International League’s best defensive third baseman multiple times.  At one time, he was ranked the 9th best prospect

Cactus League: Indians Lose Big to D-Backs 15-9

Diamondbacks 15,  Indians 9 (box score) The good news is that the Indians scored nine runs yesterday.  The bad news?  They gave up 15.  I pay about as much attention to the box scores of spring training as I do to off-season rumors about starting quarterbacks who might be traded.  Still, you can’t ignore all the

Tiger Woods is Back

While not a Cleveland story, yesterday Tiger Woods returned to golf for the first time since willing his way to victory 8 months ago on a bum knee.  And it was no ordinary tournament or bum knee.  Woods’ last tournament before surgery was the U.S. Open, which he won over Rocco Mediate.  Most people will

Shaun Rogers vs. Eric Mangini – The Drama Begins

After last season’s PR debacle with Kellen Winslow and his mystery injury that eventually led to rumor and speculation that K2 had an STD, subsequently got suspended for debunking that rumor with staph stories, then got unsuspended, I think we were all hoping for something different.  Now, it appears that we might be getting more

Indians Spring Training: Trevor Crowe Has David Dellucci in the Crosshairs

It is that time of year again.  Of all the types of stories that pop up during Spring training, my absolute favorite is the one where the young guy starts to gain traction in gaining a major league roster spot.  Without that storyline, we Indians fans don’t have the story about Charlie Manuel fighting hard

Browns Bullet Points – Free Agency, Beanie, Combine, Trade Market and More

Well, after a relatively unproductive week of writing, I decided to put together some quickie Browns notes as we are in the heart of the NFL off-season.  We have draft evaluations, free agency rumors, trade winds and other bits of information that will be totally forgotten this time next year if the Browns don’t win

NFL Trade Rumors: What is Kellen Winslow Worth?

Since the Browns’ latest reboot with Eric Mangini and George Kokinis running the show, they have harped on one main theme.  They are looking for team-first guys with good attitudes.  Now there could be a whole host of arguments on both sides whether or not Kellen Winslow fits into that category or not.  I for

Could Cavs Land Antawn Jamison for Wally Szczerbiak?

The trade deadline is coming this Thursday if you didn’t know.  The Cavs’ activity level this week still remains to be seen.  They are still claiming to be satisfied with the current roster.  At the same time, I don’t really think that Danny Ferry’s phone bill is going to be reasonable this month.  I am

The Truth Hurts for Mike Brown

Mike Brown was a little less than pleased following two whistles in 0.8 seconds to end the game against the Indiana Pacers.  Well, it was really only the second call that had Brown up in arms.  He never did settle himself down before talking to the press about Joey Crawford and his seemingly pre-determined makeup

Cavs vs. Suns – Open Thread Etc.

The Cavs and Suns will go at it tonight at the Q.  The Cavs are coming off of a tough night in Indy where they dropped a game to the Pacers.  Rock and I may not agree on the last two calls of the game, but we both agreed on the fact that the Cavs

Lebron’s Complaining vs. Bad Referees

I am having trouble reconciling some differing feelings on Lebron James.  He is a superstar.  He is a Clevelander superstar.  I think he should get the benefit of the doubt on calls from referees because he is such a physical player.  It is a fact that more times than not, in order to stop him

Are You Still Shocked? Really?

Yesterday when the A-Rod steroid story broke, my immediate response was surprise.  That lasted a second and then it occurred to me.  I am not shocked by any of these stories anymore.  In fact, I don’t know why anyone would be.  I guess I would be shocked if I found out that Jamey Carroll was

Hines Ward and His Super Bowl Blood Treatment

Hines Ward was an integral part of Pittsburgh’s victory in the Super Bowl over the Arizona Cardinals.  This came a couple weeks after the Ravens tried to break him in half on a tackle after a catch.  In that tackle, Ward reportedly sprained his medial collateral ligament and underwent treatment so that he could play

Cavs Beat Bosh and Raptors

Cavaliers 101, Raptors 83 (Box) The Cavs had an awful third quarter last night.  They were outscored 26-15 in that frame as Toronto cut the Cavalier lead to 8.  Starting the 4th quarter the Cavs were leading 74-66 and we were worried.  Rock and I were twittering about it along with some WFNY regulars and it

Delonte West Back Before Break?

While the Cavs have played reasonably well since Delonte West broke his wrist at Chicago on January 15th, they would certainly do well to get him back on the court sooner rather than later.  His perimeter defense and mid-range scoring abilities are un-mirrored by any other players on the Cavs’ roster.  The Cavs have won
