The Replacements?

Not much time has transpired since Joe Borowski put one on a tee for Manny Ramirez, but the Plain Dealer is already discussing the arm problems that may land Joe Borowski on the disabled list.  Whether the team finds anything wrong with the throwing arm or not, Eric Wedge and Mark Shapiro definitely have some decisions

Lee Presses On

While our “ace” has been more of a joker over the first few weeks, and the possible ace of the future couldn’t find the plate last night, fifth starter Cliff Lee took matters into his own, frozen hands today to pitch an absolute gem against the Oakland As. Listening to a few callers during the

Walk This Way…Eight Times

As much as I’d like to blame the weather for the recent play of the Indians, the fact that they have not been playing well in Oakland as well as Anaheim leads me to believe that there’s a bit more to the story than some rain and a few wind gusts.  In his first appearance

No Suspension For Byrd

One of the bigger issues to come from last season’s playoffs with the Red Sox was the Paul Byrd HGH scandal, but as reported on MLB.com, there will be no suspension handed down to the veteran pitcher.  Byrd, in the midst of a 0-2 record with an ERA north of 11.00 obviously feels good about

Checking In On The Kids

I Thought I would take a few minutes to break down the first two weeks of those Indians that aren’t quite “Indians” just yet. I haven’t had a chance to analyze much, but to save you a trip from finding some of these stats on your own, here’s a quick run-down of some notable players

Not Exactly A Career High To Brag About

If you’re starting to get nervous about this whole C.C. Sabathia issue, you’re likely not alone.  While one part of me feels that his struggles will only lower his market value come time to re-sign, the fact that he is currently hurting this team can not be overlooked. In his third start of the season,

Vernon Gholston, First Overall?

With the Miami Dolphins on the clock with the first overall selection in the upcoming draft, Bill Parcells and company have already stated that they will not be selecting Matt Ryan out of Boston College.  While it was reported yesterday that the ‘Phins have begun talks with the University of Michigan’s Jake Long, another Big

From the Beating a Dead Horse Department…

The Tribe coming home for a series against Oakland will likely be well-received.  However, if Eric Wedge decides to go with Jason Michaels for the entire series, here’s a quick peak of what our left fielder has been able to produce at Progressive Field thus far… That’s some “spray chart,” Jason…

Archie Griffin: Credit Where Credit Is Due

Despite a lot of nationwide disdain for Big Ten football, the AOL FanHouse is running a series of posts that are counting down the 10 best, worst and weirdest moments in Conference history.  Yesterday afternoon, Mark Hasty touched on what many football fans feel is a player with records that will likely never be broken:

Welcome Back Daniel Gibson, Defense

 Over the last few games, the Cavaliers have had their share of second-half collapse.  Thankfully, the tables were turned last night as LeBron and Company went into halftime down by four, only to hold the Nets to 30 total points in the second half (with only nine in the fourth quarter) to come out on

Well, At Least We Had That One Inning

Obviously, the expectations for today’s offense were not too high.  It didn’t help that Paul Byrd gave up six earned runs in only three innings on the hill.  But regardless of who’s pitching, to give up four home runs (one of which was a grand slam) is rarely going to win you baseball games.  No

Martinez, Outfield Production Given Day Off

Just checking the lineup for today’s game, set to square off in about 15 minutes.  In a non-surprising move, Victor Martinez will be given the day off.  Not only is this a day game that following a night game, but the veteran Paul Byrd will be taking the hill.  Thus, Kelly Shoppach will be behind

Just When You Thought You’ve Seen It All…

I feel like I’m repeating myself with all of this “Pittsburgh Steeler Arrest” talk, but this one may take the cake.  The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that one of the actors that portrays Steely McBeam, the mascot of the Steelers, was arrested for DUI.  Kenneth Hahey, 24, of Mt. Washington was charged with drunken driving after

LeBron James, Kevin Garnett Playoff Promo

Though the Cavaliers aren’t exactly taking the world (or Eastern conference, for that matter) by storm, LeBron James continues to be the face of the NBA. Here’s hoping that his marketability can at least stick around through a few rounds of the post-season. For now, check out the promotional video that pits James against Boston’s

Paging Ben Francisco…

Over the last week, I have made it quite apparent that I am not a fan of the Jason Michaels experience.  Even worse was the game a few nights back that saw Michaels play along with typical platoon-peer David Dellucci.  Jamey Carroll got the starting nod at second base last night, meaning that the two-hole

Victor Martinez Returns, But…

 To say that Victor Martinez’s return was not beneficial would be a lie.  Placing his switch-hitting bat back into the lineup, allowing Ryan Garko to provide some pop at the bottom, is huge for this team.  V-Mart responded with a 2-for-4 evening, and a huge RBI-double in the top of the ninth.  But if you scroll

Joe Borowski Will See Your Blown Save and Raise You One Better

Let the chatter commence.  If you didn’t like Joe Borowski before last night, you sure aren’t liking him this morning.  While Fausto Carmona wasn’t exactly sharp (four hits, five walks) through six innings, he managed to get out of his jams by only allowing one unearned run thanks to a throwing error by Casey Blake.  If anything,

Kenny Lofton Wants To Get Paid

I know that there are plenty of Tribe fans out there wondering what Kenny Lofton is up to this season. I mean, how can’t you wonder when you see Jason Michaels gallivanting about left field day in and day out. Of course, nostalgic fans were appeased last season when the team brought Lofton back for

Weighing Options With Eric Snow

 Though Eric Snow has been sporting a suit more often than a jersey (well, warm-ups) over the past few months, Brian Windhorst chimes in today with a solid piece on the inner-battle that Danny Ferry and the Cavs may be facing with Snow and his injured knee.  There is no denying that Snow’s future as a
