You Can’t Win ‘Em All

I had the chance to head down to the Tribe game for a bit during lunch this afternoon (one of the few perks of working in downtown Cleveland) to find a game that had already been in the fourth inning despite only having a half of an hour go by. We obviously were not the

We’re Going Streaking!

Grady Sizemore: Current Active Consecutive Games Leader  Being in the American League, Indians fans tend to not be bothered by decisions made in the NL, specifically those by teams as far away as Los Angeles.  However, Joe Torre’s decision to start Andre Ethier over the $44 million Juan Pierre has ended the veteran speedster’s streak of

No James, No Problem. Thankfully.

There’s no denying the fact that the Cavaliers are a different team when playing without LeBron James.  There’s also no denying the fact that this team has had their troubles on the road.  And thankfully, the Charlotte Bobcats allowed Cleveland to overcome both of those difficulties as James fouled out with 3:56 left in the

Could Garko Break Out The Catchers Gear?

  Though Ryan Garko suits up at first base for the Tribe, it is no secret that the 27-year old slugger was drafted as a catcher out of Stanford, and even donned the gear in the minor leagues. Given the hamstring injury to Victor Martinez, Garko got to see a little action behind the plate

Nope, No “Glue Guys” Here!

…At least per Empty the Bench.  But not that I can disagree with their assessment, based on their own criteria.  Enrico over at The 700 Level led me to the original post, as the Sixers have Samuel Dalembert holding things together over in Philly.  The typical cast of “role players” also got the nod, including

04/02 Morning Minute: Is The AFC North Looking Weak?

Not more than a few days ago, we touched on the possibility that Phil Savage would vote for the NFL to re-seed their playoff format – citing that the AFC North was statistically the toughest division last season, and that the Browns themselves got a raw deal despite a 10-win season. Well, it appears that

Shaun Rogers: Not As Fat As We Thought

One thing you can bet on this season is the Detroit Media following every move made by their ex-defensive tackle Shaun Rogers as he does his thing a few miles south on I-75.  Today, the Detroit News has a glowing report of Rogers only weighing about 350 lbs, instead of the rumored 400.   Romeo Crennel

Can You Pass The Braylon?

While NFL fans anxiously await the schedule for the upcoming season, Tony Grossi is reporting on the possible rumors of the Browns being a part of the Thanksgiving Day trifecta of football games. But in case that we’re not on tap, Grossi makes sure to point out that it is just a rumor at this

“And The Tying Run Comes To The Plate”

Tribe fans, prepare to here the above phrase an awful lot this season.  One game down, one win in the bag – but by no means was it an easy one.  Bottom of the ninth with a three-run lead?  The easiest save in baseball is by no means easy on the heart rates of Cleveland fans when

Phil Savage Still Bitter, Likely Voting For Re-Seeding

While the NFL off-season continues to inundate us with draft prep, combine numbers and Mel Kiper’s hair, one oft-overlooked portion of the down months continues to be the ownership meetings along with voting for rule-changes.  Don’t forget, these meetings not only brought us an influx of defensive holding penalties, but also managed to single-handedly reduce

Cavaliers Embarrassed On The Road…Again

“Embarrassed” actually may be an understatement for this one. Heading in to Detroit for a much-needed win, it seems as if the only “W” that LeBron James was able to Witness was thanks to Stephen Curry of Davidson in the NCAA game the night before because losing by 14 to a division rival is simply

Jake Westbrook’s Perfect Spring

With four scoreless innings on Saturday, Indians starting pitcher Jake Westbrook wrapped up a perfect spring training, giving up just six hits in 18 innings of scoreless ball. Westbrook tossed 47 pitches in the four-inning game, with 33 being for strikes. Had it not been for an untimely rain delay, we would have likely been

Guard Swap?

  There is no denying the injury bug over the last few weeks.  While Ben Wallace is still out with back issues, the Cavaliers are hoping to get Daniel Gibson back this weekend against the Pistons.  But it may be at the expense of fellow-guard Delonte West.  Brian Windhorst reports the dirt. Delonte West has
