HHR: Vote or Die 2008

Alright, loyal readers.  Hugging Harold Reynolds has posted their sixth edition of their Iron Ref series.  The secret ingredient was “Ugly Play,” and I think that I encapsulated it pretty well. Head over to their post, read my submission and simply type my name into the comments.  Voting closes tomorrow evening.  Let’s try to get a

Indians, Farm System Goes 0-For-4

Rays 8, Indians 4 (box) Indians 5, Bisons 2 (box) Curve 4, Aeros 3 (box) Pelicans 4, Indians 3 (box) From the looks of things above, it wasn’t a good night to be involved with the Clevleland Indians in any shape or form.  Starting things off with the big league team, all you need to

Going Global At What Cost?

Yes, LeBron is playing two blocks from the Parliament building… Scott brought us the LeBron to Europe rumor a few days ago. Now, Chris Broussard of ESPN is taking it a step further, suggesting that James may in fact consider such an offer if it were at least $50 million dollars. Broussard details the effect

Terrelle or JaMarcus?

The picture below is of Buckeye freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor from yesterday’s practice.  Does he not look like JaMarcus Russell in that black QB jersey?  Another question is how can you not be pumped for the start of the season?  Twenty-five days… (photo credit to Terry Gilliam/AP)

Marcus Freeman Gets Some Love

Sure, we all know that James Laurinaitis is the man.  Award winner, hard hitter, and the son of a former Road Warrior.  Big Ten defensive player of the year, and a ton of those Buckeye sticker on his helmet – something that even forces my wife to realize how good he is.  But one player

Delonte West Needs Your Help

I leave for vacation, and Delonte West remains unsigned and his agent is making it sound like Delonte is not happy with negotiations. I come back from vacation and Delonte West remains unsigned and his agent is making it sound like Delonte is not happy with negotiations. I guess I didn’t miss much while I

You Are The GM…..For Andy Marte

WFNY readers have been playing GM for the Cavaliers since the playoffs ended. Well Tribe fans, the ‘off-season’ has come early for this year’s team. So we want your help. We will take a look at the Indians roster and determine who we should try and trade, who deserves an extension, and who we should

Josh Cribbs Wants His

I had a feeling that the whole Devin Hester sideshow would somehow come back to haunt us.  First, it was the Buffalo Bills that extended their return man, Roscoe Parrish, during the end of last season to the tune of three years, $12.3 million.  Then Hester got a new deal thrown his way, but one

Cliff Lee, Scott Lewis Light Up Opposition

Twins Take Two From Tribe

Forget New York. What About Europe?

If we thought that the NBA/European basketball salary cap issues were bad with Delonte West, you may want to sit down for this one.  Reported by Ian Thompson at SI.com: Olympiakos is considering a run at LeBron James when he becomes a free agent in 2010. […]

Eric Metcalf, Come on Down

How ironic, given that I just mentioned him the other day.  Former Browns running back Eric Metcalf is one of four men being inducted into the Cleveland Browns Legends – the club that was created back in 2001 to pay homage to those players that had a formidable impact on the franchise. Per the Browns

Braylon Edwards Wanted Out?

Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks wrote a very enlightening piece on the Cleveland Browns.  I say enlightening because, though fans were witnesses to the huge turnaround that was experienced last season, it really took that huge swing to gain this team some respect throughout the league.  We endured the Palmer years, the Davis years.  And while we were

Another Update on Brian Windhorst

If you are a fan of Cleveland Cavalier basketball, you have no doubt been following the story of Beacon Journal reporter and ESPN contributor Brian Windhorst. Terry Pluto was kind enough to send along another update on Brian’s condition- I was able to spend more than an hour with Brian…ABJ editor Bruce Wingess was there,

Carmona > Tigers, Sun Glares

Indians 9, Tigers 4 (box) While not dominating, Fausto Carmona took a giant step forward yesterday.  Granted, anything near mediocrity would have gotten positive reviews compared to his last outing.  Carmona gave up five hits in six and a third innings, while inducing 11 ground ball outs.  Couple that with his three strikeouts, and there

Rich Rod Hates Kids, Tradition; Loves Illegal Practices

Oh Michigan, you do entertain us so… It seems that new woodchucks coach Rich Rodriguez is still not making friends in the Michigan community. This time he is hurting the youngest UM fans.

Was LeBron James’ Move Hypocritical?

Please note that this post is not aimed to stir the pot as much as to get a gauge for what the consensus feeling is regarding LeBron James and his presidential campaign support.  We all know that Michael Jordan refused to support one party or another, claiming that both parties by shoes.  A cop-out, sure.  But one

Byrd to Yankees, Rockies?

With about an hour or so left before the trade deadline, I felt that it would be worth mentioning that Paul Byrd himself said that he heard that both the New York Yankees and the Colorado Rockies were interested in his services.  Hmm…I wonder which team Byrd would rather play for?  If anything, he’ll now be able
