A Wasted Season

LeBron James Captures First Scoring Title You know, in many ways, it was poetic justice that this regular season ended with LeBron James sitting on the sidelines in street clothes. Somehow, LeBron’s greatness this year was relegated to the sidelines. For all of the Cavaliers struggles and issues as a team, lost in the fog

Draft Day: Bank on DBs

 …Well, not the first draft day – as the Browns lack picks in the first three rounds – but the second for sure.  James Walker (formerly of the Columbus Dispatch, currently of ESPN) addresses the need for Cleveland to add a few bodies to the defense next weekend regardless of the number of selections.  Good news

Forty-Two Minutes For Wally

I’m being told that there was actually a Cavs game last night.  Odd that they consider it a “game” when both LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas are inactive, but I’m sure some fans got some excellent deals on tickets.  Regardless, something that was much-needed occurred last night: Actual playing time for Wally Szczerbiak. Wally World had totaled

If Last Night Was A Comic Book…

Two quick things:  1) This was my first crack at doing something like this, so I apologize for the shakiness in advance.  2) C.C. has been renamed B.P.  Clever, I know.Click on the picture for the full-size file.  Opinions and critiques are welcome below…even if it’s about Botox Baerga.

Yet Another Slow Start

Not Again… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT32baAYbSo[/youtube] Les Levine weighs in on another losing April for the Tribe. It’s interesting that the Tribe have only had one winning April under Eric Wedge, last year. And that was also the only time Wedge has taken this team to the playoffs. Is it possible that the Indians are doomed to miss

Can Sabathia Get Off The Schneid?

OK. Perhaps the first handful of games for C.C. Sabathia didn’t exactly go as planned. Understatement of the century, I know. But if he’s going to get one, the table appears to be set for tonight as the big man will face Armando Galarraga – a recent call-up from Triple-A Toledo. Though 2-0 with a

More Trouble In Cincy

  As if all of the antics of player arrests and botched trades weren’t enough for the Cincinnati Bengals, NBC Sports (via ESPN) has more fun to report.  Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson says he wants to be traded before the NFL draft on April 26-27, ESPN reported Wednesday. Johnson said he will not attend

Browns Made A Huge Mistake, Pause, Not

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a couple days now. The fine folks over at Scouts Inc, the scouting section of ESPN, decided to do a “redraft” of the 2005 NFL Draft. First of all, these things are kind of dumb. As I always say, hindsight is always easier than foresight. That being

Let The Experiment Begin

Most of you probably know by now, but in case you haven’t heard, Rafael Betancourt will be taking over the closer’s role for Joe Borowski while he heads to the DL. You’ll have to excuse me while I beat a dead horse here for a minute, because I know I’ve said this before, but I

Dellucci Does Levitation

While there weren’t many highlights from last nights game, things may have been a lot worse had it not been for a spot-on effort from David Dellucci early in the sixth inning.  Our hot commodity left fielder made a great diving catch off of the bat of Coco Crisp, that could have turned ugly.  If

Brady Quinn Slated To Start Week 14

  …At least per Philadelphia sportswriter Larry O’Rourke. Apparently, Mr. O’Rourke was given the task to forecast the entire upcoming season for the Eagles, giving a final score and a brief reason why.  Some of his forecasts are not too unrealistic.  For instance, Donovan McNabb is slated to be injured during the first quarter of Week

LeBron Teams Up Against Poverty

While many are likely caught up in the beginning of the NBA Playoffs, or even the final few seconds of the game against the Sixers, LeBron James continues to add to his philanthropic ways by joining female tennis star Maria Sharapova in a fight against poverty. Sharapova, the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program,

Tale of Two Halves

Boston: 5, Cleveland 3 The box score of the Tribe pitching staff says it all. Paul Byrd tosses six solid innings, nearly cutting his ERA in half, and the bullpen proceeds to allow four runs in three innings. Special shoutout to Jorge Julio who will look to actually retire a batter during his next appearance,

Finding problems with the Indians might be too easy… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxDGHWXRGBo[/youtube] I was stunned to discover yesterday that this is the only opportunity to see the Red Sox in Cleveland this season. And we don’t go to Boston until the last week of the year? Are you serious? Well, then again….maybe we don’t want that many

Sorting Out This Mess

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

Not again.

About the same time the Cavaliers were pulling victory from defeat, the Indians were doing the exact opposite. I’m kind of glad. No, I’m not glad that the Indians lost. I’m happy because I had a meeting tonight and recorded both the Indians and Cavaliers tonight. When I finally sat down to watch, I saw
