I’m back, and hopefully better than ever! Just completed a move to the 440. Looking forward to some awesome Cleveland experiences on the daily. As such, check out this Cleve-centric piece- “I don’t try to come off as the Pollyanna of Cleveland. As a trained journalist, I believe in bringing honesty to my writing whether positive or negative. But there are some nights where I just can’t see the bad here, or I’m enjoying the city to a point where the bad loses importance.” [Huff/This is My Cleveland]

Grossi and Florio on the Browns ranking at PFT- “I thought Florio brought up an unusual concern, and that was, “what if Trent Richardson gets injured, doesn’t everything go to hell?” I don’t understand why that would be a specific concern for the Browns. Are they going up and down every other team in the league and wondering what they will do if their starting running back goes down, or if their top draft pick goes down? Things happen, but it’s not like the Browns took an injury-riddled Montario Hardesty in that spot. Grossi acknowledged that if the backups stay healthy, he thinks Cleveland’s depth at the position is better than it has been.” [Pokorny/Dawgs by Nature]

From the way-back machine- “80 years ago today, one of the wildest games in baseball history took place. In fact, you can make a damn good argument that it is the wildest game of them all. It was July 10, 1932 when the Indians squared off against the A’s. It was unusual even before the first pitch was thrown. The game was in the midst of an A’s-Indians series in Philadelphia, but due to Sunday laws in Pennsylvania, they teams traveled to Cleveland for this one day. That proved to be crucial, as Connie Mack decided to bring just two pitchers with him – starting hurler Lew Krausse and veteran arm Eddie Rommel as the one-man bullpen.

Well, as it happens Krausse didn’t have it that day, so Mack pulled him for Rommel after surrendering three runs in the first inning. At that point, after one frame, the A’s trailed Cleveland, 3-2. It was up to Eddie Rommel and just Eddie Rommel for the rest of the game. Sure enough, Rommel would win the game. Or rather, he’d be credited with the win – after surrendering 14 runs on 29 this and nine walks. Oh, and he also uncorked two wild pitches.” [Jaffe/Hardball Times]

While we were moving, my wife discovered an old Mark McGwire Topps Rookie All-Star card. Nothing like what another Ohioan found in their attic. [Brown/Big League Stew]

Finally, as he did with Dion Waiters, Brendan Bowers talks with a Carolina blogger about Tyler Zeller. “StepienRules: Are there any reasons for Cavs fans to be concerned about drafting Tyler Zeller in the first round? Carolina March: Nope, I think you pretty much know what you’re getting with him. There were a couple of early injuries in his college career that gave him a bit of a bad reputation, but they really were fluke collisions, and he’s been the healthiest player on the team for the last two seasons.” [Bowers/Stepien Rules]
