I’m just glad Mamba is finally out

A year-long retirement ceremony is a bit much, so one WFNY writers is glad that the man they call the Black Mamba is finally done playing basketball.

Judging the 2014 Cleveland Indians season – WFNY Podcast – 2014-09-27

I welcomed back my friend Joe Petrich from the Cleveland band Something Involving a Monkey to discuss the 2014 Cleveland Indians. Joe is a brilliant guitarist and musician, but he also is about as knowledgable a Cleveland Indians fan that I know. We discussed the following… Chris Antonetti and his future with the Indians Expectations

Olbermann: Derek Jeter is not the greatest person in human history

I wrote about the Derek Jeter retirement tour last week in my WWW, and I’ve tried hard to stop short of attacking the man, himself. My annoyance with the extended Derek Jeter retirement party has more to do with it celebrating the inequities of the game by pumping up what is almost exclusively a story

Hating Derek Jeter’s retirement party, Josh Gordon’s maturation, Coinmonster and Pabstolutely

I’ve been a hater before. It’s true. I was in a lonely chorus of folks who decided not to be all that impressed by Cal Ripken on his retirement tour. I hated all the self-important pomp and circumstance surrounding the end of his “iron man” streak of games. I’m not an overly sentimental person, so

Indians 9, Yankees 3: Two games in one, Perez has the most fun

I was all set to have this one written. My main topics were going to be how the Indians defense, easily the worst in baseball, just continues to let the team down and cost them runs the offense usually cannot get back. I was also going to go in on the bats who once again

Remembering The 1999 Indians and Wade Boggs’ 3,000th Hit

Weren’t you glad that Derek Jeter didn’t collect his 3000th hit in Cleveland against the Tribe?  I really was, until I remembered that Wade Boggs hit his 3000th against the Cleveland Indians.  You might remember him making out with home plate as Jim Rome has riffed on it endlessly over the years. When I looked

Indians 5 Yankees 3: Simply Masterful

I admit it. At times last season, I was driving the “Justin Masterson must be a reliever” bandwagon. Could I possibly have been more wrong on this? Left-handed hitters have always been sort of a bugaboo for “The Big Nasty.” They entered the game hitting .306 off of him. On a night where Masterson had

Yankees 9 Indians 2: The Whole Game Turned On a Turn

This game could have been completely different. One single play, or should I say play not made, changed the entire complexity. What could have been a low scoring pitchers duel into the late innings turned into a laugher for the Yankees, all because of one single play. In the top of the second, Tribe starter

MLB Player Market Value According to Derek Jeter’s Contract

I love the Cleveland Indians and baseball.  Really, I do.  The problem is that I want to love both of these things a whole lot more.  Unfortunately for me (and many fans like me) the commissioner Bud Selig and the powers that be haven’t kept up with the times in terms of structuring the game

Carl Pavano is looking to resurrect his professional baseball career in Cleveland.  Most Clevelanders don’t know (or care) how deep the wreckage was in New York before Pavano left.  Just in case Pavano had slipped under anyone’s radar, Joe Torre’s new book aims to make sure you don’t miss it.  According to Torre and other
