If these triple-doubles keep rolling in, one is bound to lead to a win. While a win over Houston would have been nice, beating a conference rival in Indiana is just what we needed to get back on track after a sub-par finish before the All-Star break. James put up 31, 14 and 12, but the
Well, it looks like Jason Kidd is heading to Dallas after all. All it took was a different set of veterans – two veterans that have neither a no-trade clause nor a big mouth. In fact, all it took was a vet that wasn’t even playing at the time. If you ask me, Keith Van Horn
Cleveland Teams Are Desperate To Keep Superstars In Town Sports are a funny thing. They make us all crazy. By ‘us’, I don’t just means fans. They make fans, owners, and writers all equally crazy. They provide us with a bit of a disjointed perception of reality, kind of like an alternate, or parallel, existence
Though I was unsure how Daniel Gibson would fare in yesterday’s (T-Mobile!) Rookie-Sophomore challenge with his hammy, it appears that the kid did alright. It isn’t often that you’ll see a 33-point game ENTIRELY off of three-point field goals. Gibson drained 11-of-20 in the contest, with seven coming in the first half. If this wasn’t
Tribe Ace Sets Aside Contract Talks Look up the definition of ‘bad news’ in the dictionary. As the Indians pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training today, CC Sabathia made news on his own. In a statement on his own personal website, Sabathia has said that he will not discuss a contract extension during the
Could this portion of the schedule be catching up to our Cavaliers? Smack in the middle of their four-in-five run, the Cavs simply fell flat on their collective face last night, failing to top 20 points in either of the final two periods. LeBron did his part (30 points in 33 minutes), but Larry Hughes
Yes, today is the day of the Pro Bowl. Yes, I know that Brett Frave and Tom Brady aren’t playing. But frankly, I don’t care. Because Braylon Edwards, Joshua Cribbs, Joe Thomas, Ryan Pontbriand and Derek Anderson are. I know that the game has lost its luster over the years, but as a Cleveland fan
Please answer this question. Who was that guy wearing the Ira Newble jersey last night? Slashing, hitting the boards, actually finishing strong? While I wish he would produce like this more often, given the injures to the Cavaliers this week, we needed a game like this out of him – and we needed it badly.
Sorry New England fans, the “Waiting for Next Year” URL is long gone… Running off of the field before the end of the game is one thing, and the post-game interview following the game was hollow-at-best. Half of me wants to simply laugh in the face of all the Patriots stand for, but I’m going to go
I’m not sure how I missed this earlier in the week, but with big thanks to Mike over at Kid Cleveland I am now privy to the information that Browns long-snapper Ryan Pontbriand is heading to Hawaii with teammates Joe Thomas, Braylon Edwards and Joshua Cribbs. As he mentioned, with the Pontbriand selection back in
“He’s been an absolute warrior for us,” general manager Mark Shapiro recently said. “He’s one of the hardest workers and the most selfless players on our Major League team. In so many ways, he embodies what this team is all about.” Yeah, I know. I’m being a jerk. The Indians didn’t extend C.C. Sabathia, they
Negotiations Likely To Pick Up Soon Rick mentioned earlier this week some of the ways that the Johan Santana trade will affect the Indians. In the post Rick mentioned that one way it will affect the Indians is by setting the market for Sabathia. Well, Scott picked up on this in his minutes column today
Who’s this Joe Johnson you speak of? As Rick already mentioned, LeBron James did it again. With the Cavaliers struggling to amass much of an offense for most of the contest, James took over in the fourth quarter – per usual – as Cleveland outscored the Blazers 22-15 to win by one. How about this
Buster Olney is reporting that “the framework for a deal” is being constructed between Boston and Minnesota. Here’s a hint- the Red Sox aren’t looking at Nick Punto. As it is being reported, the deal is Johan Santana for Coco Crisp, Jon Lester, and minor leaguer Jed Lowrie. A fourth player is being discussed. Obviously,
Off the top of my head, I’d say the big winners here were the Mets and the Indians. Why the Mets? That should be fairly obvious I think. Why the Indians? Well, because a Central Division foe just lost a Cy Young winner. But the Indians beat him like a drum last season! Yes, that
Indians’ Lefty Looks To Make Triumphant Return To Team In 2008 Saw this on Buster Olney’s ESPN.com blog this morning, and thought I’d pass it along. Basically, Sowers talks about having to deal with disappointment and frustration for the first time in his young career. I respect the approach he’s taking to his demotion last
The Indians all but burried the Tigers’ post-season plans with 4 homes runs, and a 7-4 victory on Tuesday night. Ryan Garko hit the first one, a solo shot in the 2nd. Hafner’s 3-run blast in the 3rd tied the game, and Victor put the Tribe up for good in the 6th. Just for good
Did someone forget to tell the Indians they had a game tonight? They didn’t show up until about the seventh inning. By then it was too late. It’s not worth wasting much effort to describe this ridiculous game. Apparently, the Tribe left Detroit thinking they had won the Central. THERE’S MORE BASEBALL TO PLAY MEN!
Sweet sweep! The Tribe beat Santana for the 4th time this season, in the process they get C.C. his 15th win. Sabathia wasn’t perfect, but labored and got the plays when he needed them. There were some nice defensive plays by Garko, Martinez, and Sabathia. Plus the Boy Wonder, Cabrera, played a good shortstop, and
C.C. and the Tribe did it again…and this time Halftime Adjustments was there in person. Tomorrow- pictures to go with the words. Right now- I’m tired!
