Since Francisco Lindor has joined the Cleveland Indians, he’s continued to surprise each year with an offensive skill-set far beyond what anyone thought him capable. At age 24, will Lindor plateau, or will he continue an ascent that takes him to Mike Trout-like heights? Don’t bet against him.
Former Dru Hill staple Sisqo perfectly remakes a 90s classic in hopes of garnering LeBron James more MVP votes.
WFNY’s positional previews roll on as the guys talk about Francisco Lindor and the rest of the shortstops in the Cleveland Indians’ system.

James
As Kyrie Irving held the All-Star Game MVP trophy above his head Sunday night in New Orleans, his confident smile seemed to give off a sense of relief. In what Kyrie himself has described as one of the toughest seasons of his career, going as far as to call it “a wake-up call,” you sort
Please subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. I was a bit tired this morning and you’ll just love how I sputter out at the end with an awkward laughing at myself moment. Really though, a very nice conversation this morning about sports and culture and Questlove, who Scott spoke with for the most recent issue

We have received confirmation that LeBron James has officially won the 2009-10 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. This will be the 2nd MVP of LeBron’s career. Last year there was much pomp and circumstance surrounding his accepting the award at his Alma mater St Vincent-St Mary High School in Akron. Once again this year, he
This is probably never going to stop. I’ve written this before, and I’ll say it once more, LeBron James never had a chance with the media. He had so much hype coming out of high school, that most people thought he could never live up to it. Instead, not only has LeBron lived up to
With the 2009-10 NBA regular season coming to an end, a second MVP trophy in as many years seems to be a lock for LeBron James. Winning the award last season, James has gone on to win every Eastern Conference Player of the Month award thus far, while leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an NBA-best
The NBA Awards season is fast approaching, and despite the Cavaliers carrying the NBA’s best record for the 2nd season in a row, don’t expect them to be very heavily decorated by individual awards. In many ways, that makes sense. It mirrors the way this team is constructed. It’s LeBron James first and foremost, but
From the Indians: The Eastern League of Professional Baseball is pleased to announce that Akron Aeros catcher Carlos Santana has been selected as the winner of the 2009 Eastern League Most Valuable Player Award. This marks the second consecutive season that Santana has been selected the MVP of a league, as he was named the
While Peter King is predicting a not-so great fall for fans of the Browns, ESPN is doing their best to make up for the football team’s short comings. Using 53 panelists accross the ESPN footprint, we get to see the average wins and losses for the entire Eastern Conference. Thankfully, we don’t have to scroll
There is no denying that LeBron James gets criticized for every move that he makes. It comes with the territory when one desires to be a global icon as well as one of the biggest athlete/celebrity-types in the world. Jet-set with Jay-Z? Then expect the “crab dribble” to shake the core of Blogfrica for weeks
That’s the question you have to ask yourself if you’re a betting man. Sportsbetting.com has the over/under for the number of LeBron James MVP awards by the 2019-2020 season set at 4.5 The “under” right now is at (-120) with the “over” at (-110), so there’s a slight tilt against James achieving this feat. And given
Of course, I am being a bit facetious with the title. At the same time, now that we are reeling it is time to bring up all the little irrational points and statistics that don’t truly mean anything. Yet, we will sit back and notice meaningless trends and reasons why our team didn’t win the
A few weeks ago, everything was roses. The Cavaliers were steamrolling through Detroit and Atlanta. LeBron James was fresh off of receiving his MVP award at St. Vincent-St. Mary high school, and was doing the tour de force of media interviews. On the Dan Patrick show, LeBron had the following to say: “I have no
It goes as no surprise that that most of Cleveland is excited about LeBron James’ first MVP trophy. We’ve all felt that he’s deserved one for the last few seasons, but none of them have had the same aura as this one. But while Clevelanders continue to don their MVP t-shirts, and Nike produces MVP
How strange was it to see the Cavs actually playing a game last night? All of those nights off made it seem like the Cavs had a first round bye. (Insert Pistons joke here.) Anyway, here’s my five observations good and bad from last night’s game. Five good things- 1. LeBron. (I could probably just type
