The above video was sent to us by some Columbus-based Cavalier fans. Coupling some pretty amazing shots with the Black Keys is always a winner in my book. The fact that they edited out a few clips due to a specific individual wearing a “Witness” t-shirt is icing on the cake. Do enjoy.
He’s heating up… “Nick Weglarz continues to make impressive progress in the Indians’ farm system. The 23-year-old has hit .389 over his past 10 games with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, getting three homers, five doubles and five RBI over that span, too. Weglarz opened the 2010 season at Double-A Akron and hit .285 with seven homers and 27 RBI in 37 games. He’s been just as good since his promotion, batting .287 with six homers and 20 RBI in 49 games in the International League.” [Indians Ink]
“Look, Matt Barnes is a good NBA player, I’d of loved for him to be a Cavalier, but like I’ve already said, he wouldn’t have been the future of Cavaliers basketball. He’d of filled a 290-pound hole vacated by the artist formerly known as number 23, but he wasn’t the long term solution.” [Stepien Rules]

And a new favorite player… “By being thrust into the third spot in the lineup from Day One it was obvious that [Carlos Santana] has the trust of the management and his teammates. There were no complaints with an unproven rookie taking over in the middle of the order. It is shocking to see his .434 OBP and .998 OPS right now because he never came up and struggled the way other high profile prospects like Franklin Gutierrez, Matt LaPorta, Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Brantley did when they got their first chance. The reason he has to be my new favorite player is simple: hope. Every time Santana steps into the box I know that something huge can happen. He is the one person who is healthy who owns an at bat which is must see because of how he doesn’t give on away.” [Waves of Arms]
