The Stee*ers Are the Model for Organizational Depth

First things first, I don’t want anyone in Pittsburgh to see just how much I envy them, thus the changing of the spelling.  But I can’t help it.  Even the attitudes concerning the draft in Cleveland prove that we just don’t get it fully yet.  In Cleveland it seems we are always looking for immediate

Yankees Lower Seat Prices, Dan Gilbert Laughs

The Yankees are learning what Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert already knew.  In order to maximize profits from ticket sales, you don’t want to give up all those proceeds that occur on Stubhub, Ebay and Craigslist.  So the Yankees decided when they opened their new ballpark, that they would outsmart the scalpers and just raise

Todd McShay Needs Some Sleep, I Think

It was a long weekend for Todd McShay with the NFL draft and all, but I think maybe he should have taken a bit longer nap before critiquing draft performance. He had this to say about the Browns. While teams don’t usually like to take centers so early in the first round it’s unlikely Alex

Browns Draft: Thoughts on Day 1

After a night of sleep and an opportunity to think about it, I have decided that there is nothing to be overly excited about after day 1. The Browns didn’t make a big exciting splash by getting that one big sexy draft pick. Who would have thought that I would have this underwhelmed feeling after

Indians Win First Series On Grady’s Three Run Bomb

Indians 5, Royals 2 (box) Can you really call it timely hitting when it doesn’t happen until the 8th inning?  I know timely hitting is hitting with scoring opportunities when you really need runs.  Still, it is a bit obnoxious for the Indians to wait so long to finally get on top.  But, you have

Kokinis and Mangini’s Draft Mystery

Some people may be thinking it is easy to create mystery surrounding your draft strategy when your team has innumberable amounts of holes to fill.  They might be right.  Still, you have to wonder if Mangini and Kokinis are sitting back somewhere very satisfied with all the rumor and speculation surrounding their situation.  As Scott

Meaningless Subplot for the Indians – Graffanino vs. Barfield

While the Indians were dropping a game to the Yankees today in the Bronx, a small email conversation broke out talking about Tony Graffanino and Josh Barfield.  TD and I will always agree that David Dellucci should never be chosen over a young guy.  Trevor Crowe is in Cleveland right now, but not based on

Sanchez Smartly Skipping Draft

Mark Sanchez’ name has been floated as a player of interest for the Browns, among others.  Right or wrong, and whether or not he ends up being a Cleveland player, Sanchez is learning a lesson from two current Browns, Brady Quinn and Joe Thomas.  Quinn is obviously the cautionary tale, and Thomas is the lesson.

Browns Have Eighth Easiest Schedule For 2009

If you think the Browns will automatically slide again this season, don’t discount the strength of schedule factor that occurs from year to year.  Yes, the Browns were bad in 2008, but they had a lot of help in that they played some really stiff competition.  That appears not to be the case in 2009.

Welcome to Cleveland Kerry Wood

I was excited when the Indians signed Kerry Wood to take over the role of closer.  After attending Sunday’s game against the Jays, I am even more excited.  Standing up, cheering and going crazy with two strikes when Bob Wickman or Joe Borowski is on the mound is pure courtesy.  Standing up and going crazy
