Lebron James Gets Another Player of the Month Award

Lebron James has been named player of the month for the third time this season.  You might feel like you have already read this article from me before, but that was for the weekly award.  Anyway, this is turning out to be an amazing season.  This is the 3rd time (out of 5 possible) that

Lebron James in the Clutch

I just need to start by saying thank goodness for 82games.com.  Their statistical analysis is some of the most intriguing if not the best available on the Internet.  I use that qualifier as I am guessing the statisticians that Mark Cuban has working for him in Dallas come up with some interesting stuff that isn’t

Spurs vs. Cavs – Open Thread

The Cavs are looking to turn this thing around on Sunday vs the San Antonio Spurs.  Follow along here as the Cavs look to do it even more short-handed than normal as Anderson Varejao sits out with a bruised wrist.  Darnell Jackson gets the start to keep Joe Smith coming off the bench.  Who knows?

Cavs Drop Game to Wizards

Wizards 109, Cavs 101 (box) Nice to know that the Wizards show up when it matters most.  Wait a minute.  This was a regular season game?  Never mind.  The Cavs played a bad game against the Wizards last night.  The Cavs still managed to come back on the Wizards in the second half as they

Cutler Goes to Chicago

Well, folks, there were unnamed teams in the trade rumors, but enough team names were mentioned (Bucs, Lions, Titans) to make me believe that Cleveland might have stayed out of the Cutler talks altogether.  Anything is possible, of course, but you have to think that Cutler’s statements about not wanting to be in Cleveland chilled

Cutler to Cleveland Doesn’t Make Sense

Sometimes the Browns talk around here gets a little silly, I will admit.  While I am not going to participate in a moratorium, I can’t help but take some of the over-coverage of the Browns this off-season to heart.  As a result, I will try not to go too long on this whole thing, but

Indians Spring Training: Lewis Gets Roughed Up

Obviously we keep coming back to the same concerns when we talk about the prospects for this year’s Indians club.  Well, that is when we aren’t talking about David Dellucci and TD’s collection of voodoo dolls.  Scott Lewis was named the fifth starter over Aaron Laffey.  Awesome.  The kid showed some amazing stuff at the

U.S. Executes Improbable Comeback to Tie El Salvador

We don’t really talk soccer or futbol here much, but I happened to catch last night’s qualifier between the U.S. and El Salvador in an away match last night.  Like all games that the U.S. plays on the road, the environment is terrifying.  Think if you taught Oakland Raiders fans and the Dawg Pound how

“Hines Ward” Rule Added to NFL

I know it is a source of pride for a lot of Steelers fans that their smiling wide receiver Hines Ward blocks like a maniac.  I honestly wish Browns wide receivers cared about blocking downfield.  Still, it seems to me that a lot of Ward’s greatest hits are based on hunting for guys who aren’t

Carmona Looking to Avenge 2008

While we have all been thinking hard about the Indians’ rotation this Spring, Fausto Carmona has been dealing.  The guy who my wife felt so sorry for as he failed as a closer in Boston, came back and became a respectable starter in 2007.  2008 he took a step back other than pounding Gary Sheffield’s

Chris Cooley Doesn’t Hate Cleveland, Has Funny Way of Showing It

Chris Cooley is more heavily involved with Browns fans right now than anyone who is working in Berea.  Cooley came under fire from Browns fans in the know when he posted this on his blog. Trade talk is a weird wake up at 6:30.  Obviously something was said between teams to cause this internet trading

Browns Average Age Increases With Patten Signing

Do you guys remember eight years ago when David Patten played here?  I barely remember it, honestly.  Yesterday the Browns inked a 34-year old wide receiving insurance policy.  Patten spent the last two seasons in New Orleans, but in 2008 Patten only suited up five times for the Saints; he caught 11 passes last year before injuring his

Lebron James Records Seventh NBA Player of the Week Award

For all those Jim Rome fans out there, it might be time to drop a “freaking” on Lebron James.  Lebron Freaking James has recorded his seventh player of the week award.  It is also his second in a row.  Does that sound like the league’s MVP to you?  It sure does to me.  The Cavaliers’

If Browns Can’t Trade Down they Should Sit and Wait

If the Browns can’t trade down, maybe they should just pass for a while and then pick later.  This is the conclusion that I am aiming to prove.  Now, I know that isn’t really the proper way to go about doing analysis.  Still, this is the burgeoning philosophy that has been forming in my brain

Cavs Kind of Roll Through Hawks

(Cavs 102 – Hawks 96 box) The Cavs smashed the Hawks something fierce.  In the first half, anyway.  The Cavs held the Hawks to 35 points in the first half.  That is some good defense.  It is also some bad offense, but in the case of the Cavs at home, I won’t take anything away

Tim Legler Didn’t Earn His Paycheck Today

With analysis like this, you need a courtesy flush and plenty of TP.  And no, TP isn’t the bizarro universe love child of TD and DP.  Anyway, Legler “contributed” to the Daily Dime today with the prediction that the Cavs were going to get the top seed in the East.  That makes me happy, but

Shaun Rogers a No-Show for Offseason Workout Program
