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,

Watercooler talk will no longer have to be forced and fake. All it takes is a “Who you got?” or “Man, that Southwest sure

Fantasy Baseball Primer, Part I: The Cleveland Indians

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

03/12 Morning Minute: Phil ‘Er Up

With hard work comes reward.  And it should go without saying that the Browns GM Phil Savage has put in many of hours to get this Cleveland football franchise back on the map.  Through solid drafting, free agency acquisitions and (most recently) key trades, Savage has been one of the most aggressive General Managers in

03/11 Morning Minute: Baby Got Back Problems

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

03/10 Morning Minute: Slowly, But Surely

 Though the Cavaliers were able to hold off the Pacers during a snowy weekend game, we’re still looking at a team that desperately needs to get healthy for the home stretch.  Thankfully, good news has come across the wire as Sasha Pavlovic is slated to return this week.   Fans may hardly have any recollection of

It comes as no surprise that with the exodus of Greg Oden, Mike Conley and Daequan Cook out of Ohio State last year – and into the first round of the NBA Draft – that Ohio State men’s basketball has somewhat fallen off of the radar around these parts. Admittedly, I have very little time

Brady On The Move?

Opinions of the web site Pro Football Talk may very from person to person.  Some people tend to use their “rumor mill” as gospel, while others realize that they are just that.  Rumors.  I’m a fan of what the guys over at PFT do, but I’m also aware that not everything they put in print

Man. Talk about taking one on the chin. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one, but I turned this game on in the second quarter. I saw LeBron James nail the three-pointer from the time line to end the half, and then took off to meet a few buddies at a local establishment. By
