Westbrook sinks Sox in game 3

Jake Westbrook pitched the Indians into a 2-1 lead in the ALCS tonight. Inducing 13 ground ball outs, and 3 double plays Westbrook put gave the Tribe faithful more than could be expected. The bullpen was excellent as usual. In fact, this game looked more like the 96 wins we saw over the course of

Random Cavaliers Thoughts

Friday Night Tidbits So, I’m sitting here on a slow Friday night at home, watching the Cavaliers take on the Celtics in preseason basketball. You know it’s a slow Friday in all ways when you’re watching preseason anything let alone basketball. So I decided I’d take a few minutes and give my thoughts on a

Defining moment?

Sometimes a moment, or a game can define a season or a team. Friday night the 2007 Indians might have had that moment. By now you know the story. You watched as 23 year old Fausto Carmona pitched the playoff game of a lifetime. You saw him strike out 5 Yankees, including soon to be

Week 8 Recap

Browns Come Back, Then Hang On I’ll admit, I was out of town this weekend for a family reunion, and I wasn’t able to catch all that much of the Browns game this week. I watched the first quarter with my dad, and then we had to head over to my granparents’ house, and wasn’t

Finding Favor In The Brownies

NFL Analysts Pleased With Browns’ Direction So the baseball season is over, and the basketball season has yet to begin. That leaves us with just our beloved Brownies playing real games right now. Normally, that would be cause for nothing but more heartache and upset stomaches. But not this year. Optimism is abound when it

LeBron Speaks Out

Trouble In Happy Waters? LeBron James doesn’t seem particularly happy these days. It would be nice if he was just cranky still because his beloved Yanks fell to the Tribe in the playoffs this year, but unfortunately for us all, there’s some actual merit to his gripes. I said last week it would be interesting

Danny Ferry’s Game Of Chicken

Whose Side Are You On?? The more and more I read about this upcoming Cavaliers season, the more and more I find reasons to be skeptical. Namely, LeBron’s reaction to Danny Ferry’s game of chicken he’s playing with Anderson Varejao worries me. LeBron is perceived as a loyal teammate, and that loyalty may be put

Many People Saw Us Lose

Small Market, Big Stage We always hear a lot of talk about the small market Indians. I guess that’s true, I mean, there’s no denying what our payroll looks like ($61.29 million) and where it ranks (23rd in the majors). I just always find it kind of funny because I don’t remember a lot of

James Laurinaitis is coming back for his senior year. Sorry about your luck Michigan. So let’s get this straight- The Buckeyes will return 9 starters on defense. That’s 9 starters on a unit that ranked first in the nation in most categories, and held Michigan to 91 yards of total offense. On offense, they lose

Where We’ve Been And Where We’ve Yet To Go

Where We’ve Been…     Looking back on Game 4 of the ALCS last night, I really feel like that game reinforced everything I’ve felt about this team since the playoffs began. That performance is exactly what this Indians offense is. They may not be the best lineup in baseball, but on any given night,
