Big Z Logging Big Minutes….But Is This A Problem For The Future? People who have been following the NBA closely this season know that there’s a giant secret in the Association this year. Quietly, and under the radar, Cavaliers’ center Zydrunas Ilgauskas is quietly having one of, if not the, best seasons of his career.
2008 Brings New Alternative Uniforms Even if the Tribe fields almost the same team in ’08, they will still look different, yet familiar, on the field. The Indians unveiled their new alternative uniforms for 2008, as they have dropped the old vest look and have moved to a retro, throw-back style uniform. Call me crazy,
Wow. So the Buckeyes have knocked Lloyd Carr out of a job, the Browns swept the season series against the Ravens, and I get to write a guest post on a Michigan site. Things are looking pretty good today. So I wrote the wager post for Ghosts, we’ll send along a link when we see
How Sweet It Is!!! Browns Persevere Through Bizarre Ending To Complete Season Sweep Of The Ravens Coming into this game, the Browns hadn’t lost 2 games in a row all season. That was on the line when Phil Dawson lined up to attempt a 51 yard FG with 0:03 left in the game to try
Ohio State threw the ball twice in the second half. Michigan knew the run was coming, they just couldn’t stop it. Perhaps the Big House should be renamed. How about Beanie’s house? 2 touchdowns and 220 yards rushing provided all the offense the Buckeyes would need in this one. Gholston and the Buckeye defense swarmed
Cavaliers’ Guard Out A Month With Bruise And no, I’m not talking about his bruised ego, his bruised confidence, or any other psyches that Larry Hughes may have injured in his short time with Cleveland. But Brian Windhorst reported today that Larry Hughes is expected to miss about a month with a bruised left leg.
This by the way is not a foul in the NBA. The refs determined that this was a jump ball. Really? Jump ball? I can see that Turkoglu is in fact touching the ball. I’ll give you that. Seems to me that the guy draping himself over LeBron with a knee in his back might
I have to admit- I never thought I would type that sentence. Over the past year I have been a little critical of the performance of Wedge. This team doesn’t advance runners like they should, and they strike out way too often. In addition, he worked Sabathia and Carmona probably more innings than they should
Indians starting pitcher CC Sabathia edged out Boston’s Josh Beckett for the American League’s Cy Young Award. Congrats Sabathia! It’s official. Sabathia has become the first Indian since 1972 to win the AL Cy Young. (Gaylord Perry was the last Cleveland hurler to take home the prize.) MLB.com did not publish the final tally, but
C.C. Sabathia Takes Home AL’s Top Pitcher Award Cleveland Indians’ starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia has won the American League Cy Young Award. The Cy Young marks the third major award taken home by the Tribe this offseason, following the Executive of the Year Award (Mark Shapiro) and the American League Gold Glove Award (Grady Sizemore).
6 games in 9 days caught up to the Cavs last night, who simply ran out of gas. After a good win against the Clippers, the Cavs were spent when they arrived in Denver. Obviously the Nuggets played well. Allen Iverson was shooting the roof off the building, Carmelo got his and J.R. Smith came
My dad used to tell me, “Every year a Buckeye fan wants three things. Most important is beat Michigan. Second is win the Big Ten. And finally win the Rose Bowl.” Yeah, this one stung for a little while. But I keep thinking back to the beginning of the season. If you would have told me that
Browns Blow Early Lead, Lose To Pittsburgh The Browns’ 3 game win streak was snapped today, as we once again fell to the Steelers 31-28. The Browns fall to 5-4 on the season while Pittsburgh takes a commanding lead in the AFC North with a 7-2 record. The Browns took a 21-9 lead into the
Week 10 Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers Heinz Field Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 1:00 PM This week the Browns (5-3) get their rematch against the Steelers (6-2). I don’t have to go into details, we all remember what happened in Week 1. Ironically, though, Week 1 turned out to be the best thing to happen to the
First Look At New Book About LeBron Terry Pluto, formerly of the Akron Beacon-Journal and currently with the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Brian Windhorst, current beat writer for the Akron Beacon-Journal, have teamed up to write what looks to be a quite insightful book that looks into the becoming of LeBron James and his impact
Power Rankings Review Time for our midweek look at what the analysts are saying about our beloved Brownies. I gotta tell you, this post gets more and more fun to write every week as the Browns keep adding the wins. First up is the power rankings review. In ESPN.com blogger Matt Mosley’s Hashmarks rankings, he
LeBron James had a triple-double by the third quarter. It wasn’t enough to beat the Jazz. Seriously. James had 32 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists. Cavs lose 103-101. We’ll give Ilgauskas a pass, he had 18 and 14. He certainly did his job again. Oh yeah, he had 4 blocks to go with that.
First thing- Congrats to Grady Sizemore on winning his first ever Rawlings Gold Glove Award. Grady makes the routine plays, and every once in a while makes the impossible one. I think he has earned a Gold Glove. There are those in the media (I would link to the Rob Neyer article for ESPN, but
LeBron’s line from last night- 24 points on 9 of 16 shooting, 14 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 blocked shots in 42 minutes. He was hit in the face and had to receive treatment in the locker room in the first half. Despite LeBron’s big night, and Daniel Gibson’s hot shooting, the Cavs nearly blew that
Talkin’ Contracts As I’m sitting here watching the Cavaliers take on the Golden State Warriors tonight, I decided now would be a good time to talk about a few issues I’ve been meaning to get to lately but have been unable to due to a busy work schedule in the past week. The first thing
