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
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
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
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
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
While this site is typically littered with the rumblings of Rick, Rock and myself, what truly makes it the Cleveland sports blog that it is are the readers, commentors and fans. Typically, we’ll link to articles written by predominant Cleveland-based journalists from either the Plain Dealer or ABJ, but the more we can involve all
It’s no secret that one of the biggest concerns with the Cleveland Indians thus far is the ineffectiveness of would-be “ace” C.C. Sabathia. His walk rate is uncharacteristically high, his location has been average-at-best, and he simply has been unable to get batters out. Thankfully, there are people out there like Josh Kalk who do
Only one day after Cliff Lee tossed another masterful eight innings to shutout the Minnesota Twins, the team from the Twin cities returned the favor as the Tribe’s bats went quiet in a 3-0 defeat. Now sitting at 7-11 on the season, game three will be in the hands of Paul Byrd as he looks
…Well, not the first draft day – as the Browns lack picks in the first three rounds – but the second for sure. James Walker (formerly of the Columbus Dispatch, currently of ESPN) addresses the need for Cleveland to add a few bodies to the defense next weekend regardless of the number of selections. Good news
I’m being told that there was actually a Cavs game last night. Odd that they consider it a “game” when both LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas are inactive, but I’m sure some fans got some excellent deals on tickets. Regardless, something that was much-needed occurred last night: Actual playing time for Wally Szczerbiak. Wally World had totaled
Two quick things: 1) This was my first crack at doing something like this, so I apologize for the shakiness in advance. 2) C.C. has been renamed B.P. Clever, I know.Click on the picture for the full-size file. Opinions and critiques are welcome below…even if it’s about Botox Baerga.
OK. Perhaps the first handful of games for C.C. Sabathia didn’t exactly go as planned. Understatement of the century, I know. But if he’s going to get one, the table appears to be set for tonight as the big man will face Armando Galarraga – a recent call-up from Triple-A Toledo. Though 2-0 with a
As if all of the antics of player arrests and botched trades weren’t enough for the Cincinnati Bengals, NBC Sports (via ESPN) has more fun to report. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson says he wants to be traded before the NFL draft on April 26-27, ESPN reported Wednesday. Johnson said he will not attend
While there weren’t many highlights from last nights game, things may have been a lot worse had it not been for a spot-on effort from David Dellucci early in the sixth inning. Our hot commodity left fielder made a great diving catch off of the bat of Coco Crisp, that could have turned ugly. If
…At least per Philadelphia sportswriter Larry O’Rourke. Apparently, Mr. O’Rourke was given the task to forecast the entire upcoming season for the Eagles, giving a final score and a brief reason why. Some of his forecasts are not too unrealistic. For instance, Donovan McNabb is slated to be injured during the first quarter of Week
