Carl Pavano Addresses Joe Torre

Carl Pavano is looking to resurrect his professional baseball career in Cleveland.  Most Clevelanders don’t know (or care) how deep the wreckage was in New York before Pavano left.  Just in case Pavano had slipped under anyone’s radar, Joe Torre’s new book aims to make sure you don’t miss it.  According to Torre and other

John Rocker Hates Another Minority (Allegedly)

Congratulations go out to all the Jewish readers of WFNY.  Apparently you too can now be added to the list of people that John Rocker has ill will toward.  And for all you Indians fans out there, do you feel as badly as I do for giving Rocker a standing ovation on his first trip

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

McDyess Will “Live With” Pistons Preference

Yesterday after the Cavs mounted their late-game comeback to beat the Pistons in Detroit Auburn Hills, Antonio McDyess was talking.  First he was talking about the game that just happened. “If we keep playing like this, we’re going to be an under-.500 team, and we’ll be struggling to make the playoffs,” said Pistons forward Antonio

Sunday and A Very Very Open Thread: Cavs and Cards

Good afternoon folks.  So, if you are watching the Cavs game then this is a really really late open thread.  If you are gearing up for “The Big Game” tonight, then it is a really early open thread.  A lot of the WFNY guys are popular in social circles and won’t be available to post

Tony Grossi Gets First “Interview” With Phil Savage

Tony Grossi was apologizing for not getting more out of Phil Savage when he talked to him this week at the Super Bowl media center.  While Savage put a lot of “no comment” type answers together in a row, I did find this one quote to be a bit of a gem. Me: “You had to

Mo Williams Carries Cavaliers Over Kings

Cavaliers 117 – Kings 110 (box) And the beat goes on with the Cavaliers.  First Ilgauskas goes down.  Then Delonte West follows suit.  Even WFNY writers couldn’t quite come to grips with how the team was going to compete without two of its starters. Last night, deep in the Q (shoutout A.C.) the Cavaliers played

McCreight Out, Kokinis Still Not In, James Harris On the Way?

It seems as if a lot of false deadlines have passed in the media.  First potential general manager George Kokinis could have been named “as soon as” last Monday.  Which then became “as soon as” Friday, which is now becoming “as soon as” Saturday.  And yet, there is still plenty of activity as T.J. McCreight,

Dear Braylon Edwards

Boy, that escalated quickly… I mean, that really got out of hand fast.  First, you started dropping passes.  Then we started booing you and making fun of you.  Then we even started mocking your commercial endeavors like 5 hour energy.  Then you yelled at us for hating you because you were from Michigan and claimed

Kokinis Could Be GM Today

All my WFNY brethren are seemingly photoshop geniuses.  I have thrown my hat into the ring with this picture on the right.  What’s up now, boys?  Try and keep up, ok?  (I used PowerPoint because I don’t know how to use PhotoShop.  I know.  Genius, right?) Yesterday the Ravens dropped their playoff game to the

The Sky Shouldn’t Fall Because of Delonte

I am a huge Delonte West fan.  I even specifically asked for his number 13 t-shirt for Christmas this year and it now proudly hangs in my closet.  The dude was certainly the most underrated piece of the Cavs’ personnel moves last season.  He plays bigger than his height, plays both sides of the ball,

Brian Hartline Going Pro

Redshirt junior, Brian Hartline has declared himself for the NFL draft.  After a season that saw his numbers fall, Hartline has decided not to try to improve his draft position in his senior year.  The real story of Brian Hartline’s future potential is really tough to predict.  In 2007 while catching passes from Todd Boeckman,

Serial Killer Question of the Day

You arrive home one day to discover that your family is gone.  Yes, they even got your dog scraps.  All that is left on the kitchen table is a note and a cell phone.  You are starting to sweat as the chills form in tiny little bumps that are so severe they appear to be

I’m Happy the Browns are in the AFC

Watching the Eagles vs. the Giants today made me realize just how much I despise the Fox Sports Robot.  The robot looks like a metallic football player and when it isn’t monotonously jumping up and down in the corner of the screen, it is doing (wait for it…) the electric slide.  I don’t know what

New Year’s Resolutions for Sports

I hate resolutions.  It seems to me that, when you really think about it, that people wait until an arbitrary moment in time before they stop eating and start exercising or whatever else the resolution might be.  If you feel like changing something in your life, you should probably just do it whenever.  That’s usually

Cliff Lee Says No to WBC

Now, some news from the best story of 2008, rather than the worst, the Browns.  Cliff Lee has decided to stay away from the World Baseball Classic this year, preferring to keep his training schedule intact.  Paul Hoynes has the story. “Cliff gave it a lot of thought,” said (Lee’s agent) Braunecker, “but he’s coming

We Ask Jets Fans About Mangini

The Internet is a magical place.  While Clevelanders of yester-year had to suffer in a vacuum of sports misery talking about their problems, we have the benefit of communication like the world has never seen before.  That sounds like the opening lines of pretty much any paper I wrote in college.  Wide sweeping statement that

Browns Bullets for Sunday January 4, 2009

I am sure most of you are either watching the NFL playoffs or the Cavs’ battle in Washington against the Wiz.  Meanwhile, we haven’t been talking a lot about the Browns since the season ended, and with good reason.  What is there to say that hasn’t already been said?  Well, now with a little time

Do We Still Need The Rooney Rule?

I think at this point in this nation’s history, we all know where the state of diversity stands.  Um, Barack Obama is going to be inaugurated into the highest office in the land soon.  We are a few years removed from the Superbowl where we were reminded every two seconds that Tony Dungy and Lovie
