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

You Are The GM…..For Jamey Carroll

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

Did We Offer Anything for Artest?

The past few months have been full of lamenting over what the Cavaliers should and could do with their off-season.  We knew from the get-go that we wouldn’t have much of a play in the free agent market.  You know, because of that crazy salary cap thing.  And while we saw a few teams make moves,

Mike Brown’s New Job?

I was able to watch the first half of Team USA’s exhibition against Turkey before coming to work this morning (a bright spot about the Olympics being on the other side of the world.) The US beat Turkey because of defensive pressure and superior athleticism. It certainly wasn’t because of offensive creativity. Did I miss

LaPorta’s Olympic Swing

The 700 Level directed us over to the recently updated NBC Olympic photo galleries that have produced pictures of the baseball team during past and present activities.  The picture above is of former Brewer and current Indian Matt LaPorta during batting practice.  While I have no idea where the ball went, seeing images like this make

Lee, Lead Squandered

Tigers 14, Indians 12 [13 innings] (box) Cliff Lee pitching is typically a good thing.  Cliff Lee pitching with an 8-1 lead is typically even better.  ‘Twas not the case last night, as the Indians pitching staff allowed 22 hits to the Detroit Tigers – most of which came after the fourth inning.  Lee took an

Ricky Davis: Set to Ruin L.A.

Ricky Davis is a man of many traits.  He’s a man of many quirks.  And now he’s a man of many teams, signing with the Los Angeles Clippers for two-year deal.  Oddly enough, there is an opt-out clause after next summer which shows that neither party is exactly sure how things will work out.  But can

LeBron James to Play Thursday

Fear not Cavs fans, the “Golden Ankle” appears to be alright.  Fresh off of a pure walloping of Team Canada last Friday, Team U.S.A. will suit up againstTurkey in an exhibition match with LeBron James in uniform.  When asked about his status for the game, and if his ankle will be able to take the

The Company Line

The Orange and Brown Report asked if I would do a piece for them about the line play during training camp. I jumped at the chance. Anything for some access… Quick- what was the strength of the Browns last year? If you said offensive line, Phil Savage agrees with you. Now, what was the biggest

No. Thank YOU.

Though C.C. Sabatahia has moved on to Milwaukee where he has proceeded to light up opponent after opponent, he still has a place in most fans’ hearts.  For this reason, it comes as no surprise that the big man took the extra step this week, and purchased ad space in today’s edition of the Plain

RISP Was Not Our Friend

Tigers 8, Indians 5 (box) This game came down to one thing: Capitalization.  The Tigers did, and the Indians did not.  Seven of the eight Tiger runs came with two outs; the Indians were 3-for-17 with runners in scoring position.  More than one occasion found the Indians getting the lead-off man aboard.  When Grady Sizemore

Training Camp: A Photographical Recap

Rick and I decided to venture to Berea yesterday to take in some of our Browns during their evening practice.  While Rick’s recap will go up some time over the next day or so, I’ll present my view of things – a view that will have significantly less analysis, but way more pictures.  Do Enjoy

The Future of J.J. Hickson

Going into the most recent NBA Draft, it could be argued that Danny Ferry needed to draft a guy that would be considered more “NBA Ready,” as opposed to banking on pure upside.  When we left the night with J.J. Hickson in tow, many people were left scratching their heads which lead to many posts

Paul, Is That You?

Indians 5, Tigers 0 (box) First, 1-and-5 Jeremy Sowers goes perfect through five and now 5-and-10 Paul Byrd shuts out the Tigers through seven and two-thirds?  Not to mention, it all comes after former Cy Young candidate Fausto Carmona gets lit up in only two plus frames. The official site had an interesting stat; one

Now This Is More Like It

In a day in sports age where it is commonplace to make fun of any mid-to-small market town simply because it is not New York/Boston/Los Angeles/Chicago, WFNY reader MoBot passes along something that should make your day.

Did Brady Quinn Upgrade?

Sure, he will still be playing the back-up roll the season, but Brady Quinn was still loud and proud at this year’s ESPY awards.  But if you notice one thing, it’s that his date isn’t the same girl that he took last season – you know, the one that sat with him through 20-plus draft

About Carlos Santana and Jon Meloan

Now that we’ve finished up the series with the Twins, and the whole Casey Blake trade has started to sink in, I thought it would be best to give the WFNY readers some info on the two players we received in return for Casey: Carlos Santana and Jon Meloan. With All-Everything catcher Russell Martin playing

Rest of Weekend, Not So Fruitful
