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
Grady Sizemore Collects Gold Glove Award In a somewhat surprising result, Cleveland Indians’ centerfielder Grady Sizemore has won a Rawlings American League Gold Glove Award, given annually to the best defensive player at each position, as voted on by managers and coaches for each team. The other 2 outfield Gold Gloves in the American League
ESPN radio is reporting that the Indians have picked up the option on Paul Byrd. Byrd, Jow Borowski and Aaron Fultz all have club options that need to be decided upon this week. I would be surprised if all of those options didn’t get renewed by the Tribe. More importantly, congrats are in order for
Mark Shapiro Wins Executive Of The Year Again For the second time in three years, Cleveland Indians Geneal Manager Mark Shapiro has been named Sporting News Executive Of The Year. In a vote amongst his peers, Shapiro received 13 of 47 votes. Second place went to Colorado Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd, who received 11 votes.
Browns Keep Rolling Along! Make that 3 in a row. The Browns overcame a 21-9 halftime deficit yesterday to put down the Seattle Seahawks 33-30 on a Phil Dawson FG in overtime. The Browns’ 3rd staright win leaves the record at a remarkable 5-3 at the midpoint of the season. It’s really hard to figure
Since I’m in way too positive of a mood to write about the Cavs, let’s focus on the Jackets tonight, who are 5-0-1 in their last 6 games. They have the hottest goalie in the game, and a superstar in Steve er, Rick Nash. (Sorry, still thinking about the Cavs.) Pascal Leclaire had a 21
Jamal Lewis runs for 4 TD’s; no sacks allowed all day for Browns! The Browns fell behind early, but came on late to win a close game over a good opponent. The Seahawks may not be a Superbowl contender this year, but they came in with a 4-3 record, good enough for first in the
Chris Wells put the Buckeyes on his back and carried them to a 38-17 win over the Badgers. Wells ran for three scores and 169 yards on 21 carries. This game was much closer than the final score indicates, as Wisconsin had a 17-10 lead in the third quarter. That was when Wells took over.
