GAMBLOG Picks Of The Week

Picks Of The Week – February 22, 2008 After taking a week off (as though being a new parent can really be that tough) Matt is back for another GAMBLOG installment. This week he makes up a spread, which is shady, but I’ll let it slide this time. He’s generally pretty good with his line

02/22 Morning Minute: Will W’s Bring W’s?

 Wow.  What a night to be away from the computer.  In hindsight, it may have been for the better, as it allowed for some digestion of everything that went on with the Cavaliers (and Browns!!) in the last 24 hours. Earlier this week, I mentioned all of the D-named players on our roster without consideration

Apologies and Analysis

Early Reflections On The Cavaliers “Big” Trade First things first, I’m a man of my word. I said earlier today that if the Cavaliers actually pulled off a trade, I would publicly apologize to Brian Windhorst for doubting his early reports on the trade. Well, the trade rumor was legit, and so here we are.

Friday’s roster…ugh

  Ladies and gentlemen…the bench! The Cavs will not have their new toys in time to play against the Wizards on Friday, nor will they have their recently discarded toys. Of course, they are still battling injuries as well. So who in the world is left to play? Well there’s LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

Updated 2:13 pm Ben Wallace Is The Latest Name To Surface I literally just saw this sequence from Chad Ford’s chat on ESPN.com: “ Chad Ford: (1:19 PM ET ) Hold on a second … have to take this call on a possible trade … Ryan, Chicago: Please tell me Ben Wallace is on the

Latest Trade Rumors

Trade Rumors Supposedly Involve Shawn Marion Following all this trade talk has been a bit of a whirlwind. As I promised last night, I have been keeping my eyes peeled and my ears open today. First, Brian Windhorst released his latest blog post about the trade rumors, saying, “Woke up this morning to an explosion

Lost in the bustle of possible trades…

The Plain Dealer is reporting that the Browns are very close to a deal with Jamal Lewis. The deal is reportedly for two years with an option for a third. Browns GM Phil Savage told a local radio show that he expects this deal to be completed within 24 hours. That is certainly good news for

Not So Fast, Big Man

While digging through some recent blurbs regarding Cleveland Sports, with many thanks to reader And One, I came across Brian Windhorst’s piece over at the Akron Beacon-Journal regarding Zydrunas Ilgauskas.  As you already know, Big Z has had some foot injuries in his past – some of epic proportions – that have kept him at bay.  Thankfully,

02/21 Morning Minute: Second Time’s A Charm

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

Make Of This What You Will

I always like heading over to Brian Windhorst’s blog on gamenights after halftime to see his analysis of the first half. I certainly wasn’t expecting to see this up there tonight, “Folks, I have not watched a second of the first half as I pursue some hot trade rumors with the Cavs. They are being

The Cavs Trade Rumors Continue

Now, while I realize that Chad Ford is the same guy that rumored Larry Brown to be locked and loaded to coach the Cavaliers not all to long ago, his latest bit has me at least a little intrigued. “The deal, as described to me by a player agent, would send Miller, [Brian] Cardinal and

More on Brady Quinn

If you haven’t heard (or read) by now, ESPN Page 2 writer LZ Granderson had a an unfortunate story to share from his recent visit of New Orleans.  I say “unfortunate” because while I’m unsure of the surrounding words that were shared, no one deserves to be threatened while simply walking down the street. The

Leave Our Guys Alone

Kelvin Sampson “Tampering” With OSU Recruits? The world of recruiting is a lot like the Wild West from the movies. It’s a world dominated by renegades and outlaws. I mentioned the way OSU football recruit Willie Mobley’s mother received a letter from a Jim Tressel imposter urging Mobley not to go to OSU. Well, evidently,

Only A Matter Of Time?

Contract For Derek Anderson Could Be Coming Soon In case you missed it, I saw this on the Plain Dealer’s site this morning. In an article by Mary Kay Cabot, she says that GM Phil Savage feels confident that DA will be signed to a 3 year deal soon. She writes, “Talks have been a

02/20 Morning Minute: When a Triple-Double Isn’t Enough

Granted, the team simply did not play well in last night’s game against Houston, but when your leader goes for 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists and you still lose, it is safe to say that something is wrong.  Combining a sluggish second quarter with a 38 percent clip from the floor, and that’s

Is There An Answer In Free Agency?

The NFL Offseason: Where Mel Kiper gets more TV air time than the President of the United States and veterans (and their respective agents) are on the prowl for long-term, guaranteed money.  Thankfully, at least for fans of the Cleveland Browns, Phil Savage has resurrected the offense via key free agent additions over the course

02/19 Morning Minute: Where Can I Sign?

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
