Peralta To Stay At Shortstop I talked a little earlier this week about some of the changes I thought we could expect to see in the 2008 version of the Tribe. Yesterday, Mark Shapiro spoke to the press about some of those changes. He pretty much talked about all the main points that I mentioned,
Lets Get This Thing Started… So here we are…..Game 5….a chance to finish off the series….our ace and potential Cy Young winner on the mound. This is one that is just setting itself up for a big win…..or else a load of heartache. So, here I sit, a bottle of Pepto at my side, anxiously
NFL Analysts Pleased With Browns’ Direction So the baseball season is over, and the basketball season has yet to begin. That leaves us with just our beloved Brownies playing real games right now. Normally, that would be cause for nothing but more heartache and upset stomaches. But not this year. Optimism is abound when it
Trouble In Happy Waters? LeBron James doesn’t seem particularly happy these days. It would be nice if he was just cranky still because his beloved Yanks fell to the Tribe in the playoffs this year, but unfortunately for us all, there’s some actual merit to his gripes. I said last week it would be interesting
Whose Side Are You On?? The more and more I read about this upcoming Cavaliers season, the more and more I find reasons to be skeptical. Namely, LeBron’s reaction to Danny Ferry’s game of chicken he’s playing with Anderson Varejao worries me. LeBron is perceived as a loyal teammate, and that loyalty may be put
Small Market, Big Stage We always hear a lot of talk about the small market Indians. I guess that’s true, I mean, there’s no denying what our payroll looks like ($61.29 million) and where it ranks (23rd in the majors). I just always find it kind of funny because I don’t remember a lot of
Sasha Pavlovic Re-Signs!! Ok, so I spent so much time working on my season preview, I missed what was going on in the ‘Breaking News’ department of the basketball world. As Brian Windhorst has up in his blog, the Cavaliers and Sasha Pavlovic have ended their holdout and come to terms. Windhorst is saying the
James Laurinaitis is coming back for his senior year. Sorry about your luck Michigan. So let’s get this straight- The Buckeyes will return 9 starters on defense. That’s 9 starters on a unit that ranked first in the nation in most categories, and held Michigan to 91 yards of total offense. On offense, they lose
2007 Recap… First, the obvious. The ’06-07 season was a miraculous season. It was way better than I think any of us imagined it would be, and I think it raised all of our collective expectations as to what this team and LeBron in particular can accomplish. Unfortunately, the season came crashing to a halt
ALCS Game 5 Thursday, October 18, 2007 Jacob’s Field – Cleveland, Ohio Josh Beckett vs CC Sabathia 8:21 PM EST Ok, I’m gonna keep this short, but sweet. Here’s the breakdown. Josh Beckett’s career record at Jacobs Field is 0-2 in 2 games started, going 11.2 IP with an ERA of 6.92. Also, with 4
Where We’ve Been… Looking back on Game 4 of the ALCS last night, I really feel like that game reinforced everything I’ve felt about this team since the playoffs began. That performance is exactly what this Indians offense is. They may not be the best lineup in baseball, but on any given night,
What’s Being Said And What I Think Just a couple follow up thoughts on the Browns. I’m going to the Ohio State basketball game tonight and then will be watching the Cavs first game tonight, so I wanted to make sure to post something on here today. First things first, lets look at some power
I Am Moron, Hear Me Roar!!! If you listen to ESPN Radio’s morning show, Mike & Mike In The Morning with Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, you would have heard an awful lot of talk about Manny Ramirez the last couple days. Normally, I tend to agree more with Golic than Greeny, and you would
File that one under ‘we’ll take it’. The Browns won ugly, but they won a game on the road for the first time this season, and they won consecutive games for the first time since 2003. They overcame an early 14 point hole en route to a 27-20 victory.
ALCS Game 3 Monday, October 15, 2007 Jacob’s Field – Cleveland, Ohio Daisuke Matsuzaka vs Jake Westbrook 7:00 PM EST Everyone knows how pivotal game 3’s are in playoff series. If the series is 2-0 coming in, Game 3 is the difference between the series going to 3-0 and being virtually over, or going to
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuuqEmK9c00] Buckeye Commentary brought to our attention that the Ohio State band did not travel to Penn State on Saturday. According to Buckeye lineman Kirk Barton the reason is because the last time the band went to Happy Valley, they were pelted with all types of objects, some that may have included human waste. Whether
What To Do With So Much Free Time So the Browns have a bye week this week. *YAWN* I suppose it’s ok, though, because I wouldn’t want to overload this week with a Browns game and then Game 7 of the ALCS (oh please, oh please, oh please don’t let there be a Game 7).
How do you kill zombies again? Seriously, Lugo looks dead in this photo! We gave up a bunt single to a corpse! (No, I did not alter this photo in any way!) If you are looking for me to make excuses for Thursday’s loss you will be disappointed. Josh Beckett beat the Indians. That’s it.
The bye week has come and gone. Now the Browns prepare for the stretch drive. They sit at 3-3, and have some very winnable games coming up. This week they play the winless St. Louis Rams. This Rams team has certainly been one of the bigger disappointments of the NFL so far. That being said,
What Have We Done To Deserve This Misery? We had it. Story of our lives. Up 3 games to 1, with our ace, the likely Cy Young award winner, pitching at home to send us back to the World Series…this time with home field advantage…this time playing a team we would have been favored to
