The Cleveland Indians And Luck

News image

I was poking around Baseball Prospectus the other day when I came across an interesting stat: No Indians starting pitcher other than Justin Masterson has pitched a full season’s worth of innings at the MLB level. This was written before the Indians inked Shaun Marcum to a minor league deal, but he hasn’t pitched over 180 innings in a season since 2011 and is a poor bet to reach that threshold again due to his extensive injury history. That stat says ... Read more

The Numbing Sameness of It All, Again--New Coach Edition

News image

It looks like the combined pressures of running the NFL's most inept franchise and conducting the NFL's most inept head coaching search in history finally got the better of Cleveland Browns management as today they officially hired their 7th or 8th choice as their next head coach after sending contrary signals that they wouldn't make a decision until after the Super ...

10 Ways Richard Sherman Could Have Gotten More Attention

News image

While your Twitter friends continue to deconstruct the deeper cultural ramifications of the post-game interview heard round the world, it’s hard not to wish that Richard Sherman had actually gone just a wee bit further. All of this reaction to a little chest thumping and some bad sportsmanship? Are we this desperate for something outside the usual monotone, passionless regurgitations of athlete nation? Fact is, with ESPN inevitably determined to squeeze every last drop out of this story right up until ... Read more

Best Browns Ever

News image

Super Bowls are nice.  Playoffs are nice too.  Consistency with the coaching staff and an unspoken, honorable trust in the front office goes a long way with fans.  So, maybe I’ve been told as much, but I’m basically guessing on all of this; after all, this is the Cleveland Browns we’re talking about.  Often times, we hear some nonsense about ...

Some Browns thoughts are still rattling around my brain- because hey, it’s not my fault they are done playing by January… Every. Single. Year. And to borrow the name of a semi-recent Steely Dan CD, everything must go! All Browns fans ‘know’ stuff about the team. While it seems true that the fan base is dwindling due to the wanton mismanagement ... Read more

The Cleveland State men's basketball team fought back from a 13-point deficit with eight minutes remaining, but couldn't get the final shot to fall, as Wright State held on to a 49-46 victory Sunday afternoon at the Wolstein Center.

We Didn't Sign Up For Dis

It’s hard to say what best sums up the 15 years of Cleveland Browns football we have been privelleged to receive since the NFL awarded the city with an expansion franchise to begin play in 1999.  Do you start with the fact that 80% of those seasons have hit double-digits in the loss column?  Do you talk about the draft ...

A Chris Grant Trade History Review

Speak to anybody who follows the NBA about Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant and odds are that they will mention his poor track record drafting.
