Tribe goes for division clinch today

The magic number… The number was reduced with a Detroit loss yesterday. Nobody wants to clinch on a loss, so here’s hoping the Tribe bounces back and takes the series today. Jake Westbrook has the ball for the good guys. This might be a good indication of what Jake will do with a little pressure

Buckeyes feast on Golden Gopher

So when the game first came on, Mrs. Adjustment said “Are the Buckeyes playing the McDonald’s All-Americans?” How would you answer that? “No, that’s Minnesota. I’m not sure they have any former high school All-Americans.” The Buckeyes made short work of the Gophers, beating them 37-7 at the Dome yesterday. If you listen to Minnesota

Throwing a penalty flag on The Big Lead

Full disclosure first- I read The Big Lead. I’ve linked to the Big Lead. They even threw us a bone once with a link back to a Michigan post John wrote. But I have to call a foul. On two occasions in the past 10 days The Big Lead has ran posts that were nothing

LeBron has surgery to correct vision

In case you missed it, LeBron had Lasik eye surgery last weekend to improve his vision. Most reports I’ve seen don’t consider this a major thing, just a little tweak. But what if? What if this minor correction turns out to be something that helps LeBron focus on the basket better? What if this correction

To: William C. Martin, AD, University of Michigan From: Charlie Cobb, AD, Appalachian State University Dr. Martin- Thank you again for your hospitality this past weekend. The wife and I enjoyed your wonderful facility and campus. You certainly exceeded our expectations. I wanted to say that your team performed admirably, and never gave up. That

Art Modell, most hated owner in sports

This comes as no surprise to anyone who follows the Browns. ESPN’s page 2 came out with a list of the most hated owners in all of sports. That Art Modell came in first is not a surprise to me, the surprise was that he wasn’t second and thrid as well. Former Cavs owner Ted

Was it good enough?

Good points John. I wonder was Charlie Frye’s performance good enough to be named the opening week starter this week? I thought Charlie did a good job, particularly his handling of third down situations. He certainly looked comfortable running the offense. And speaking of that it was nice to see Jamal Lewis move the ball

Sabathia wins 19th

You may have noticed a lack of Indian’s posts lately. This was not a lack of interest by Halftime Adjustments in watching the Tribe, but rather a lack of decent things to report about them. The past few games have looked like split squad spring training games. The Tribe has been resting players (which it

Real Men of Genius- Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan

UPDATE: It’s funny, we’ve been getting a lot of hits from Michigan Facebook users on this one. If you are featured in one of the pictures we’d love to talk to you, maybe even offer you a WFNY shirt for your infamy. Many of you are keep trying to tell me this was originally a

Antonio Henton arrested…

Ohio State freshman QB Antonio Henton was arrested Monday night on charges of soliciting a prostitute, the Columbus Dispatch is reporting. Henton pleaded not guilty to the charge and is being released on a $2500 bond. Henton was caught by the Columbus vice squad on a sting. I can’t imagine this ending well for Antonio.

Santana…sweet music to the Tribe

The Indians beat Minnesota yesterday 5-0. C.C. Sabathia got his 16th win of the season, pushing his record to 16-7. His era dropped to 3.24, close to his career best (3.22 last year). As good as Sabathia was yesterday, the real story was the Tribe getting to Santana once again. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpX97eg-W-k] (Come on, I haven’t

Indians get out the shovels…

The magic number… The Indians didn’t get out the brooms yesterday. They broke out the shovels and buried the Tigers. They’re done. They will not make the playoffs. C.C. and the Tribe won 4-2 on a positively gorgeous day at the Jake. (I’m calling it that forever- I don’t care who buys the naming rights.)

A save?!? Are you kidding me?

By now you have probably seen the highlights, or at least the score of the Rangers/Orioles game. The Rangers spanked Baltimore 30-3. Most runs scored in like a 100 years yada, yada. Here’s the most ridiculous stat from the game. Forget Saltalamacchia and his 4-6 night with 7 RBI and 5 runs scored. Never mind

Browns get win…and dominate the Chiefs

The Browns get a win in the first pre-season game of the year. What is good news for Browns fans is not really that we won the game, but that the defense and offensive line dominated the Kansas City Chiefs. No, Larry Johnson didn’t play. Brody Croyle, Tony Gonzalez and the rest of the offense

Cabrera and Gutierrez saved my tv tonight

I may have done something rash in the 4th inning. In the 3rd, we had men at 1st and 2nd with nobody out and failed to score. We had a man on second with one out in the 4th and Shoppach hits the first pitch to shortstop for the out. I was fuming. I’m so

I can’t even see straight right now

Unbelievable. I can’t even tell you how mad I am at Eric Wedge right now. Lead-off double in the ninth inning in a tie game. Peralta up to bat, and Wedge doesn’t order the bunt! Of course it is pointed out by the dynamic announcing duo that Wedge likes to give his hitters freedom to

Two games, two teams heading in different directions

I write this while watching the Browns getting handled by the Lions, and the Indians beat up the Rays. (Thank you picture in picture, and thanks to John for running the ship the last two days.) The Indians look a lot more like a playoff team today. The Browns just scored their first offensive touchdown

Dear Fausto, I’m sorry

Someone needs to say it right? You have been spectacular since the All-Star break and have a 4-4 record to show for it. Your era is below 2.00 during that span. Tonight you gave up only three hits. Two of them went for homers, even though one of them was clearly fan interference. Before that
