Cris Sykes is a 30-year-old writer from Mentor, Ohio. He is an eternal optimist with the Cleveland sports franchises. He thought Chris Palmer, Charlie Manuel, and Randy Wittman were all good hires the day they were made. He thought Jeff Garcia was going to be a Pro Bowl Quarterback when he arrived in Cleveland. Keith Hernandez would lead the American League in hitting when he arrived in Cleveland.

In his spare time, Cris usually goes out for some drinks, and is interrupted every few minutes to throw a bowling ball. His 9-5 job is doing research and development for Sherwin-Williams, where he has been working for the last 5 years.
