Sutcliffe and Sabathia

With our Tribe (and company) recap coming a bit later today, I found this small blurb by Will Carroll from Baseball Prospectus. On June 13, 1984, the Indians traded Rick Sutcliffe to the Cubs. He made 20 starts, going 16-1 with seven complete games and won the Cy Young in the NL. On July 7,

Breaking Down The Mo Williams Deal

As promised, we return with our full analysis of the Cavaliers trade of G Damon Jones and F Joe Smith for PG Mo Williams from the Milwaukee Bucks. Here’s a hint…..we like this acquisition a lot. Danny Ferry has been one of the most vilified figures in Cleveland sports through the last 5 years. Some

Welcome Aboard Mo Williams

The Cleveland Cavaliers finally pull off a trade to bring in another offensive threat to compliment LeBron James. First off, welcome back Brian Windhorst! Seriously, this is how you come back and make a splash. BW is reporting that the Cavaliers are set to complete a 3 way trade that will bring in Mo Williams

Indians Perhaps Looking To Bolster Ohio Fanbase

In an attempt to bolster their fan base stretching deep into central Ohio, it would only make sense for the Indians to move their AAA operations to Columbus in 2009. The Columbus Clippers have had an interesting run, that’s for sure. After beginning as an affiliate for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1975, the Clippers would

More Mo Williams Talk

Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Bucks guard Mo Williams could be headed to Cleveland as part of a three-team trade, with the Bucks targeting point guard Luke Ridnour of the Oklahoma City franchise, formerly the Seattle SuperSonics. […] The Cavaliers have been unable to come to a contract agreement with point guard Delonte West, who

Browns

Rucker Out, Depth Disappearing

Browns rookie Tight End Martin Rucker has a torn meniscus, which will require surgery and keep him out of action for 4-6 weeks. I for one was very impressed with the 6’4″, 260 pound Missouri Tiger both in the Jets game, and at camp. Rucker was getting plenty of reps with the first and second

Asdrubal Has Five On It

Indians 7, Orioles 5 (box) Maybe he’s just a second half guy?  I’m not sure what has gotten into Asdrubal Cabrera lately, but I am not going to complain one bit.  Following his 3-for-4 night against the O’s, delivering his second game-winning hit in as many games, Cabrera has been on quite a roll.  How

Bob Golic’s Bar & Grille, Coming Soon

If you have been downtown within the last two weeks, and have driven past the Lakeside portion of West 6th and the Warehouse District, you have likely seen a small change to the furthermost northeastern section of the bar/club scene. The bottle service club formerly known as Synergy has had a small revamp, and will

Paul Byrd to Boston

…For Dustin Pedroia!! (Just kidding) From the Indians Media Relations: CLEVELAND, OH—The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has completed a trade with the Boston Red Sox, sending RHP PAUL BYRD to Boston in exchange for a player to be named or cash. The player to be named must be agreed upon on or before

Blue Jackets, Guest Post

The 5-Hole, CBJ News and Notes…

With roughly five weeks to go until the start of training camp (rookies 9/12, veterans 9/19), the Blue Jackets are in many ways simply playing the waiting game until camp begins with their new roster additions. That is not to say the team is completely devoid of news, however. Every Tuesday, Dan Parker will bring

Browns

Headscratcher of the Day…

From the team’s official site: So, wait.  Can they play, or not?  From what I saw at the Jets game, it goes without saying that I would be a bit biased towards the latter.  And what’s the difference between “exciting” and “electrifying?”

Browns

At Least Romeo Isn’t Concerned…

Because I can’t help it.  All too often with this Browns team has an injury started out minor and then lasted a tad longer than expected.  So, with all of this talk regarding the stitches in the foot of All-Pro, 16-touchdown receiver Braylon Edwards, I cannot help but think the worst.  Not to mention, it wasn’t

Tribe on the Offensive

Indians 13, Orioles 8 (box) Fausto Carmona should be thrilled and Eddie Mujica should simply be thankful that it is simply the way the rules are written.  Mujica had a Joe Borowski Special, with a “BS” and a “W” next to his name in the box score. The pitching through the first seven innings was borderline

The NBA At A Crossroad

We take a deeper look at the ever increasing threat to the NBA…..European Professional Basketball. Are the NBA players serious about going to Europe? Is Europe serious about making a serious run at the NBA elite? Or are the players using this attention as a bargaining chip? Oh, the irony. We’re not the first ones

LeBron, Team USA Face Angola Next…

Men’s Basketball, USA vs Angola, Tuesday 8:00 AM ET. Back in 1992, when the original “Dream Team” won gold, their first opponent in group play was Angola. I remembered watching an interview with Charles Barkley before that first game, and thanks to the magic of YouTube, here it is… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRl8bvCKIK8[/youtube] The exact question asked of

The Rockers Are Back. Kind of.

“The Cleveland Rockers are back and better than ever!” The line above comes from the web site ClevelandRockersFan.com – the official fan site of the Cleveland Rockers.  But before you go thinking about the now-defunct WNBA franchise, take a step back. We’re talking ABA here, people.  American Basketball Association.  Carolyn from And One unearthed this

Carlos Boozer: Betrayal Skull Dude

Apparently, the Far East fans of the NBA love their nicknames.  And also apparent is the fact that they know what they’re talking about when it comes to donning certain players their respective tag lines.  From Jodie Valade’s PD report: Our Chosen One, LeBron James, is “Xiao Huang Di,” which means Little Emperor. That’s a

Golden.

This has nothing to do with Cleveland sports, but when an athletic event moves you like the US men’s 400 meter freestyle relay did last night, you have to mention it. I’m not gong to describe it to you, or give any kind of analysis. Pat Forde did an excellent job with that in this column.
