If weâ€™ve learned anything over the years, itâ€™s that ...Â (1) You canâ€™t just throw money at the open market and assume things will play out the way Bills James and his boys say it should in their ZiPS projections. Â (2) Itâ€™s not always a good idea to award mammoth contracts to guys who are in their 30s or about to hit their 30â€™s.Â (3)Â For a variety of reasons that only hindsight can help explain, players who sign long-term ...

Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a boy with a lightning scar met up with a duck from outer space and went to look for the missing idol with his best friend, who was a vampire with golden eyes who could not act, and they unleashed a box of snakes on a plane while flying through a hole into the 10th dimension with their handy oscillation overthruster, and none of this is remotely as absurd as Cleveland winning ...

Use words of awe, amazement, disbelief. There is this weird twist of joy, hope, and trepidation with this team right now.
We are joyful for what's happening on the field. We hold around the hope that this is for real. Yet we carry around the trepidation after what has happened the past two years.
I believe at one point last year, I told everyone, myself included, that it's just time to enjoy this. Set aside the trepidation and suspend your desire to ... Read more

The Indians swept the weekend series from the punchless Mariners behind strong starting performances from Ubaldo Jimenez, Zach Mcallister, and Justin Masterson, but the real excitement of the weekend came from the walkoff heroics of Jason Kipnis and (to a lesser â€¦ really lesser â€¦ really completely far, far lesser extent) Mark Reynolds. In todayâ€™ B-List, Buff notes that while the starting pitching has been a lot of fun, sometimes the bullpen has not, and instead the combination of longballs ... Read more

Regardless of what the Tigers did against the Rangers on Sunday Night Baseball, YOUR Cleveland Indians were coming into this week in first place of the AL Central and the hottest team in baseball. They've got one more left against the Mariners, and win or lose, they're going to welcome Detroit into Cleveland as the leaders of the AL Central for a first place show down.
Is this what it's going to be all summer? Because it sure as heck looks ... Read more

Using a Poker Strategy in Football
Successful poker players may lose many small pots and still be totally happy, for their goal is to win the occasional big ones. The same thinking comes naturally in football. When the Browns are in a fourth down, moving all in, in the meaning of going for it, is worthwhile only if the odds for success are good enough. In most other cases, it's probably wiser to just fold the hand, as in punting the ball away. In the same way, winning or losing a single yard means nothing as long as they manage to get a first down.
Baseball, specifically pitching, fascinates Trevor Bauer. Trevor Bauer fascinates me. So does baseball, but thatâ€™s not what this is about. The 22-year-old Bauer was made available in trade talks this past offseason because the Arizona Diamondbacks turned what should have been fascination and inquisitiveness into contempt and a myriad of misconceptions. Without knowing what was said or how Bauer handled ... Read more

The Indians probably owe their very existence in this town to their die-hard fans.
In the decades of the mid-20th Century, when losses outpaced wins on a yearly basis and postseason contention was a 35-year fantasy, someone had to form the small rind of humanity that barely clung to the dugout wall at Cleveland Stadium. Somebody had to be in that ... Read more

The universally-accepted time to evaluate Major League Baseball teams is now upon the Indians. Fridayâ€™s game against the Mariners will be Game #40 and the Indians will be over .500 at the 40-game mark for the third straight season. They were 26-14 in 2011 and 23-17 in 2012 right around the quarter pole. After the 40-game mark, the Indians went ... Read more

Do you remember where the Cleveland Indians were on May 18th last year?
Do you want to remember?
Trust me, it isn't bad. It's actually quite good. It's what followed makes the memory a touchy subject. The Indians went 46-77 after May 18th. A steady slide down the standings. That record was the worst in the AL Central over the span of ... Read more

The Indians returned to recent form by beating Philadelphia in the getaway game, and in todayâ€™s B-List, Buff considers Corey Kluberâ€™s second Quality Start, Corey Kluberâ€™s surprisingly effective plate appearances, and digs the long ball in the manner of chicks. He also thinks that Jason Kipnis is just showing off, wonders if there is a situation in which he would ... Read more

The NBA Draft Lottery will be announced on Tuesday, May 21st.Â Normally I would wait until after this epic event to take a comprehensive look at the Cavs draft.Â But thanks to Byron Scott (i.e. the human tanking device), we know the Cavs are assured a top six pick in this draft. Â So I've decided to jump the gun and ... Read more

After forty seasons, all of Cleveland was awash in the excitement of playoff baseball.Â
John Hart had completed what Hank Peters had begun. In the late 1980s, working under the anonymity of yet another Indians rebuild, Peters began collecting the building blocks of a true big league powerhouse. He and Hart famously identified a pool of young players who they considered ... Read more

Football at Ohio State is never boring, but in contrast to the last couple of years, the offseason talk has been focused on football, as opposed to tattoos, NCAA investigations, coaching searches and bowl bans. In fact, it says something about how uneventful spring football was for Urban Meyer and his Ohio State Buckeyes that one of the biggest pieces ... Read more

The Indians dropped a game in Philadelphia, wasting a thoroughly mediocre start by Scott Kazmir and showing little offensive ability against the mighty Someguy Pettibone, who I wouldnâ€™t be able to identify with a copy of his driverâ€™s license. In the past three games, the Indians have managed a grand total of three runs, and in todayâ€™s B-List, Buff addresses ... Read more

2013 Cleveland Indians Updated Future Odds and Analysis
The Indians started off the 2013 season slow out of the gate but have turned it on in recent weeks. Now neck and neck with the Detroit Tigers at the top of the AL Central, Cleveland showed the AL World Series favorites that they will not go quietly. Last weekend, they took two ... Read more

I find it exceptionally funny and sad at the same time that the very folks who once flayed a certain talented G-F (after he abandoned his home state and all his rabid local basketball fans) are now imploring him to ... Read more

If you asked me before the double header if I'd take a split, you know I most certainly would. Yes, I would. Why am I good with a split? Because nothing changes going into the rest of the week and that to me is the important thing. Nothing changing based off two games with the Yankees.
Say what you want about ... Read more
