Found February 26, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
I stuttered like a fool to open the podcast this week. Scott Raab is a pretty regular guy who sets you at ease, but I still managed to stutter right into the opening just the same like a nervous Nelly. Anyway, after letting him laugh at me, Scott and I spent a nice amount of time discussing the news of the day in longer form. Of course, to keep up with Scott Raab you can follow him on Twitter. Of course if you haven’t read The ***** of Akron yet, you should buy it and read it. Here’s a more detailed rundown… Fan expectations of teams aren’t demanding enough The Browns and what they should be aiming to do this season New regimes and windows The NBA and how rebuilding there is a razor’s edge The culture of the NBA and less than max effort Scott’s experience watching the Clippers in L.A. last week The Cavs and their lack of defensive (ahem) intensity Byron Scott and his role in the state of the Cavs Warren Zevon, recovery and quitting quitting Scott weighs in on the Cleveland Indians pitcher lifeboat Listen at Stitcher —————- Subscribe on iTunes

2013 Indians Top 60 Prospects: #20 Shawn Armstrong

The IBI's 2013 Indians Top 60 Prospect countdown continues on with right-handed pitcher Shawn Armstrong. Everything came together as hoped for Armstrong last season as he was 100% healthy for the first time since he went off to college, his arm strength was all the way back, and he really solidified himself as a legit pitching prospect in the Indians’ organization.

Devin Brugman Dumped Browns WR Greg Little?

What happened to the Greg Little and Instagram star Devin Brugman relationship we first told you about in early January? It seems that the seemingly happy couple (during the holidays at a Cleveland Browns party) has hit splitsville. Can you possibly blame Brugman if she broke it off with the Browns wide receiver? He only made around $700,000 during the 2012 season and will only...

2013 Spring Training Game #6: Royals 4, Indians 1

When you play 198 (hopefully more) games in a season, you are not going to win them all, and the Indians encountered their first taste of defeat in 2013 on Tuesday.

Come (back) to Colinwood

There was a really good piece by Joe Crea in the Plain Dealer last week about an influx of new businesses and other development in Cleveland’s Collinwood neighborhood (“where Frankie Yankovic first learned to polka”) and its center, the Waterloo Road District, home of one of the best concert venues (and brunch spots) in the U.S.A., the Beachland Ballroom. The article contains...

Revamped Defense Will Help The Starting Rotation, Hopefully

Going into this recent offseason, both the astute and casual fan understood that the starting rotation needed to be corrected to avoid another 90+ loss season in 2013. However, a quick glance over the thin and unimpressive free-agent list left most to wonder how the front-office would address the rotation. The answer was, in grand small-market fashion, to address the defense...
