Forty-Two Minutes For Wally

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

If Last Night Was A Comic Book…

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.

Can Sabathia Get Off The Schneid?

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

Johnson said he will not attend

Dellucci Does Levitation

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

Brady Quinn Slated To Start Week 14

  …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

LeBron Teams Up Against Poverty

While many are likely caught up in the beginning of the NBA Playoffs, or even the final few seconds of the game against the Sixers, LeBron James continues to add to his philanthropic ways by joining female tennis star Maria Sharapova in a fight against poverty. Sharapova, the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program,

Tale of Two Halves

Boston: 5, Cleveland 3 The box score of the Tribe pitching staff says it all. Paul Byrd tosses six solid innings, nearly cutting his ERA in half, and the bullpen proceeds to allow four runs in three innings. Special shoutout to Jorge Julio who will look to actually retire a batter during his next appearance,

Lee Presses On

While our “ace” has been more of a joker over the first few weeks, and the possible ace of the future couldn’t find the plate last night, fifth starter Cliff Lee took matters into his own, frozen hands today to pitch an absolute gem against the Oakland As. Listening to a few callers during the

Walk This Way…Eight Times

As much as I’d like to blame the weather for the recent play of the Indians, the fact that they have not been playing well in Oakland as well as Anaheim leads me to believe that there’s a bit more to the story than some rain and a few wind gusts.  In his first appearance

No Suspension For Byrd

One of the bigger issues to come from last season’s playoffs with the Red Sox was the Paul Byrd HGH scandal, but as reported on MLB.com, there will be no suspension handed down to the veteran pitcher.  Byrd, in the midst of a 0-2 record with an ERA north of 11.00 obviously feels good about

Not Exactly A Career High To Brag About

In his third start of the season,

Welcome Back Daniel Gibson, Defense

 Over the last few games, the Cavaliers have had their share of second-half collapse.  Thankfully, the tables were turned last night as LeBron and Company went into halftime down by four, only to hold the Nets to 30 total points in the second half (with only nine in the fourth quarter) to come out on
