03/24 Morning Minute: Fausto, Take II

I hope all of you had a relaxing Easter weekend.  It isn’t every year that one can couple said holiday with March Madness – it felt like a version of Thanksgiving, though supplanting football with a bevy of college basketball games.  When Easter falls in late April, we get some regular season baseball; but that’s

03/22 Morning Minute: Congratulations, LeBron

While it is an excellent feat regardless, I’m much more satisfied that LeBron’s record-breaking evening came during a win.  I mean, was there any doubt in anyone’s mind that this wouldn’t happen?  While James was very humble in his post-game speech, the fact that the fans have seen him score every single point of his

Gossiping Gooden?

When Drew Gooden was shipped to Chicago in the deadline deal, one thing that we mentioned at WFNY was the fact that LeBron was not the biggest advocate of the power forward.  These rumors were around for a while, as James was frequently baffled by the big man leaving his feet on defense, receiving passes

Kent State Getting Pounded Early

Just a quick little March Madness update for the readers.  It’s currently halftime between UNLV and Kent State, and the Golden Flashes are rolling into the second period with 10 points.  Ten. The Running Rebels hung a 31-spot on Kent, sinking 13-of-30 shots (43 percent).  By no means is 43 percent something to write home

Checking In On Franklin Gutierrez

 When I covered the Tribe in a recent Fantasy Baseball primer, one of the players that did not make the cut in terms of mentioning was our current right fielder, Franklin Gutierrez.  It wasn’t that I don’t think that Franklin would put up some numbers, it was that his ADP is very, very low and

03/19 Morning Minute: Sheed’s At It Again

The wonderfully talented Natalie over at Need4Sheed has posted Rasheed Wallace’s comments from last night’s post-game interview.  Two things you’ll need to know: 1) He’s excited to be playing against Ben Wallace, obviously someone that he still appreciates, and 2) LeBron is only “one of the better players” in the league.  And is not a “King.”

The Dugout Tackles The Tribe

I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with The Dugout, but one of their more recent installments is based on our beloved Cleveland Indians.  You see, each of these pieces are a satire that seeks to represent a chatroom of sorts between the players.  My favorite part is seeing the screen names that

Ben Roethlisberger: Third Best QB In NFL?

I was glossing over an article written over at RotoWorld, one of the best sites for player news out there today.  I got about five lines down and came to a screeching hault.  When discussing quarterbacks and their ranking on the fantasy world, we have this: 1. Peyton Manning IND 32 – With Clark re-signed

03/18 Morning Minute: The Second Half Strikes Again

Clank! Given the current playoff standings, the Cavaliers really needed a win last night against the Orlando Magic.  But, once again, the second night of a back-to-back stint provided this Cleveland team with a flat second half – and a loss.  Yes, LeBron put up 30, and is 34 points shy of the All-Time scoring leader for the

03/07 Morning Minute: Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Welcome back, Zydrunas Ilgauskas!  Yesterday’s Cavaliers game was entirely too close for my liking, but there is no denying that Z’s presence in the post was huge on both ends of the floor.  Yes, he had 16 points, nine boards and three blocks, but indirectly enabling Ben Wallace to do his thing (15 rebounds, three steals,

03/15 Morning Minute: It’s NCAA Inundation!

Everywhere you look these days, it’s NCAA hoops.  You cannot help but to catch some of the MAC Tournament action, given that it’s in our back yard.  It’s looking like a Kent State University versus Akron University finals, which is more than sure to draw a solid crowd today.  Neither team had a cakewalk to

One Last Try With Gary Baxter

Gary Baxter is a former second-round draft pick that once amassed back-t0-back seasons of at least 80 tackles with double-digit passes defensed.  In 2003, the cornerback also picked off three passes, had a sack and – most importantly – played in 16 games. He played in the same number of games again in 2004, the year

3/14 Morning Minute: Speechless

I apologize in advance, as I’ve been really pressed for time this week.  A lot going on in the ever-pressing “real” life, which I’m sure we can all attest to from time to time.  That is unless you’re DeShawn Stevenson, who apparently has entirely too much time on his hands. That’s right.  Instead of focusing

OSU Hoops: The Team To Watch?

Yesterday, ESPN’s Pat Forde broke down the major conferences, discussing things like “The Team to Beat,” or which team could be possibly “losing it.”  While it comes as no surprise that the team “losing it” is one Indiana University, following the loss of Kelvin Sampson, the “Team to watch” definitely caught my eye: Team to

Perhaps Danny Ferry knew what he was doing when he added a slew of depth to the Cavaliers frontcourt?  Though Cleveland beat Portland last night, 88-80, another big man went down as Ben Wallace sat out the second half with back spasms.  Thankfully, we have this kid named LeBron James who poured in his seventh triple-double on
