NFL Free Agency: Thoughts on Robert Royal and the Direction of the Browns

I know there is nothing to be really excited about with the signing of Robert Royal.  At least I don’t believe there is any reason to get excited because of who Robert Royal is as a player.  On the surface, he is just another run-of-the-mill tight end as RockKing and frequent commenter RandyOSU have pointed

Cleveland Cavaliers Win, Clinch Playoff Spot

Cleveland 91, Milwaukee 73 (box) With 22 games left to go, the Cavaliers are going to the NBA playoffs.  (Crickets…)  That was about the same reaction that Lebron and company had after the game.  The Cavs were expected to make the playoffs, and short of a Washington Wizards-esque collapse due to injuries, it was never

Manny Ramirez Selling His Boston Condo for $8.5 Million

Who cares about a recession leaking into depression?  Certainly nobody who can afford to look at Manny’s condo that he recently put up for sale in Boston for $8.5 million.  The condo is 4421 square feet with four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and three valet parking spaces.  Oh yeah, and if you can afford the mortgage,

NFL Free Agency Rumors: Browns and Edgerrin James?

According to sources, Edgerrin James wants out of Arizona.  It seems kind of odd to me.  James fled the Colts when they were good and before they won the big one.  Now that the Cards got to the big dance and missed, James wants to get out of there too.  Does this guy fear successful

What Would You Do if the Browns Traded Brady Quinn?

Now, let me get this straight right out of the gates.  I don’t think the Browns are actually going to trade Brady Quinn.  Especially considering what we’ve heard about Eric Mangini and his preferences for players with leadership ability, poise, and professionalism.  If there are qualities that belong on Quinn’s resume, we know more about

Open Thread – Cavs vs. Hawks – 2009-03-01

Well, here we are in prime time on a Sunday night.  The Cavaliers have an opportunity to overtake the Celtics’ number one position in the East due to the Pistons victory earlier in the day.  In order to do that, the Cavaliers will have to get past a tough Hawks team in Atlanta.  The last

Maurice Clarett is Blogging

Maurice Clarett will always be known around these parts for helping deliver one of the happiest moments in my sports life.  His performance at Ohio State in driving them to a win in the National Championship game over Miami will always be the thing about him that I remember most.  I know that isn’t the

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

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

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
