I’ve got some advice for Kansas City Gm Carl Peterson, if he cares to listen. You just traded away the top sack man in the league for a first rounder and a couple of thirds. I’m not going to debate whether or not Allen should have been a part of your rebuilding process. Getting those
Coincidentally, as Rock mentioned in this piece below, many writers are focusing on the physicality that is involved within the Cavs/Wizards series. And while it is typically the bloggers that are discredited due to their “opinions,” I direct your attention to Tom Knott of the Washington Times. In his latest piece, titled “Oh, These Forces of
Cavaliers Show They Are A Team That Knows How To Win In The Playoffs…..So Far The talk of this first round battle between the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers so far has centered around the physicality of the series. The hard fouls, the technicals, the flagrants, the ejections, the introduction of the term “LeBron” foul.
As usual, click on the picture for the full-sized file!
It’s hard to imagine that six shutout innings of four-hit baseball (along with 11 strikeouts) would be bringing an ERA down to 10.12, but last night’s win is something that I’d rather embrace and move forward than focus on the previous outings. Kansas City has now lost five straight games after scorching right out of
Count Les Levine impressed with the play of LeBron James, but… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iczi5PDUj08[/youtube] LeBron isn’t going to buckle because of the pounding he’s taking in this season. You have to wonder though, Mike Brown says all the time that LeBron gets the same punishment that teams used to give Shaq. At this rate, what will his
Forwarded my way from loyal reader Mike, we have this question from John Hollinger’s ESPN Chat today: Dellis (Washington DC): Are the refs fairly calling the Wizards/Cavs series? The Wizards Big 3 are constantly assaulted, while the King’s travels are never called and he seems to get foul calls on every touch. SportsNation John Hollinger: (4:04
With the Miami Dolphins announcing today that Jake Long (OT – Michigan) will be the first overall selection in this year’s NFL Draft, Rivals.com took matters into their own hands to create slide-shows of the 10 best and 10 worst top selections ever. And while there’s no telling where Long will fit into this scope
Official release from the Indians… CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has placed RHP JAKE WESTBROOK on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Sunday, April 20th with a left intercostal strain. To replace Westbrook’s spot on the Major League roster the Indians recalled OF BEN FRANCISCO from AAA Buffalo. Westbrook has made
While we continue to deliberate what the Indians should do with their “situation” in left field, Tom Fornelli does his thing over at the FanHouse by bringing the Michaels/Dellucci issue to the forefront. Job Requirements Some baseball experience is needed, whether it be professional, high school, little league, or even tee ball. The ability to
For over 3 years, Tribe fans have been hearing about Adam Miller, but we have yet to see him. Maybe that time has come… The name Adam Miller is usually accompanied by either “Indians super-prospect” or “will miss another start”. The 2003 draft pick has been the Indians top prospect ever since his 2004 campaign
Obviously, we’re thrilled to see the Cavs roll out to a 2-0 lead over the Wizards. We’ve whipped out Alltell commercials and even created a comic strip. But that’s what you do when you’re biased. What about those that aren’t along the same rooting lines as ourselves? Let’s take a look… D.C. Sports Bog
Since the last comic depicting the latest C.C. Sabathia combustion got such a great response, I thought that a “Game 2” comic would fit in quite nicely this morning. And what would a good comic be without a little Agent Zero complete with brick-action as well as that piece of garbage that is Brendan Haywood. The only
Um, Washington? You may want to rethink your playoff strategy… The most dominating playoff performance by a Cavalier team? Check. LeBron gets his, and sets up teammates? Check. Cavalier big men box out and take away second chance opportunities? Check. A shooter other than LeBron knocks down some long range shots? Check. Cavs don’t allow
Les Levine on the struggles of the Tribe’s offense… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVkE0TLu_dQ[/youtube] I have to say I agree with Les on this one. Grady, Victor, Garko and the hitter formerly known as Travis Hafner. The only other that I would add, only on potential is Cabrera. He had some solid at bats last season, and so I’m
Game Two, Wizards at Cavaliers tonight. We’ll get the live blog started around 6:45 pm. Game starts around 7:00 pm. In the meantime, feel free to give us your predictions and/or thoughts on the game tonight in the comments section below.
With Game 2 tipping off in less than eight hours, the Washington Post Wizards Insider sheds some light on what may be an interesting development: Gilbert Arenas’ injured right wrist. When I first read the blurb, I thought that he may had done it early in the fourth quarter, which could have lent some insight
While not exactly Cleveland news, I thought the player photo on Barry Bonds’ RotoWorld page deserved some attention. Not that I can blame Bonds. I’d try to pretend that I was Tom Glavine as well if I were in his situation.
You couldn’t ask for much more from Saturday’s Cavs game. It was physical, there were countless lead changes, and in the end, we came out on top. Like most people, I was extremely thankful that the Cavs changed up the offense for some of the fourth quarter, allowing Daniel Gibson to bring the ball up
Indians Waste Another Stellar Pitching Performance What a summer of discontent this is shaping up to be. April is barely halfway over and already the Indians are baffling all of their followers, as well as themselves, as the team has now frustratingly sputtered to a 7-12 start this year. Sunday was just par for the
