The world loves its yearly dose of Nick Gilbert.
Itâ€™s become an annual ritual, at the conclusion of every abysmal post-LeBron Cavs season â€“ three in all. Cavs owner Dan Gilbert rounds up a contingent of famous Clevelanders and heads to New York. At the center of the contingent is Gilbertâ€™s son, Nick.
A 16-year-old who suffers from a disease called neurofibromatosis, Nick Gilbert has used his series of 30-minute turns in the spotlight to raise awareness about his disease. Which was ... Read more

I wouldn't say that the Cleveland Browns are under siege at the moment, but that's only because they are perpetually under siege. Having spent nearly a decade and a half in a bunker will give anyone a bunker mentality. Still, all the bad press flowing from Berea these days suggests that nothing much has changed and also that the Browns really could use a better media rep.
When the story of owner Jimmy Haslam's troubles at Pilot Flying J broke, the ... Read more

I don't think I've ever flip-flopped between wanting a game to restart and not wanting a game to restart as much as I did with this rainy-mess of a game. Of course you would love to erase a 9-2 deficit and forget about the whole thing, because you might as chalk that one up to a loss.
But when you suddenly score three runs to make it some sort of a ball-game, then things get interesting.
Tack on a few more to ... Read more

Let us, just for a moment, spit in the face of instant gratification.
Pretend - just for the moment, mind you - that you canâ€™t reach into your pocket, pull out something the size of a hash brown and access up-to-the-minute stock market updates and read breaking news about why North Koreaâ€™s pissed off today.
Donâ€™t get me wrong - all of that is the schnizzle. If not a reflection of progress, it at least demonstrates a proverbial Lollapalooza for the human ... Read more

Some nights, you can't do much. There's always things you can do differently. There's always things that could have went your way and there's always things you analyze as to what went wrong.
That happens and that happened against the Tigers on Tuesday. However, there was one thing that the Indians could do absolutely nothing about.
As hard as they tried, even if certain things went their way or they did things a little differently, there was one thing that was not ... 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.
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 ... Read more

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 ...

An ex-big league general manager recently joked about a trade heâ€™d made. Heâ€™d given up a lot for an aging star- but hey, he had not originally given up that much for those players. So, he rationalized that through the combination of the two trades, heâ€™d made a nice deal. Sure, the entire â€˜transactionâ€™ played out over several years, but ... Read more

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 ... 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 ... 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 ... Read more

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
