Closed his eyes. Waited a little longer. Finally, after about 20 seconds, he spoke. “I don’t know,” Bauer said in the quiet of the Indians clubhouse. “There are very few people in this world that actually understand me. And take the time to understand me. I don’t even understand myself half the time. “So I wouldn’t expect anyone else to have an understanding on what makes me tick.” [Nightengale/USAToday] —- “It’s a universal truth that Cleveland has been Browns town since the team first joined the NFL for the 1950 season. Through (long-ago) championships and (more-recent) crushing defeats, regime changes, coaching changes and more quarterbacks than we care to think about, Cleveland has always bled Orange and Brown. (And while it is cute that the Indians are trying to convince everyone, primarily themselves, that this is a Tribe Town, they need to come back when they draw more than 5,000 fans for weeknight games in April and May. Then we can talk.) But we’re starting to wonder if the Browns are losing their influence, however, following the announcement that the team will no longer charge a Personal Seat License to new season-ticket purchase.” [Moore/Red Right 88] —- Ohio State may have made a slight change to it’s number font. [Eleven Warriors] —- Old pal Shelley Duncan- “Shelley Duncan didn’t need a GPS to navigate the two-hour drive along I-71 between Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, home to the Indians’ Triple-A affiliate. He spent much of the summer of 2011 bouncing between the two cities like a pinball. On Aug. 19, he was recalled from the Clippers as the Tribe embarked on a three-game trip to Detroit. Upon joining his teammates in the Motor City, he learned the news about his mom. The Indians placed him on the bereavement list, and he left the team for a few days. Shelley struggled to come to terms with the diagnosis. It wasn’t grief or shock or panic he was feeling — those emotions would eventually arrive, too. First, he worried about the thoughts funneling into his mother’s mind, the perilous worst-case scenarios she could be pondering. When he roamed the outfield, that distress dominated his conscience. It was when he stepped into the batter’s box, however, that he found solace.” [Maisel/MLB.com] —- Not about Cleveland or sports. But should be required reading. “Simply including an ad hominem attack in a reader comment was enough to make study participants think the downside of the reported technology was greater than they’d previously thought. While it’s hard to quantify the distortional effects of such online nastiness, it’s bound to be quite substantial, particularly — and perhaps ironically — in the area of science news. An estimated 60 percent of the Americans seeking information about specific scientific matters say the Internet is their primary source of information — ranking it higher than any other news source. Our emerging online media landscape has created a new public forum without the traditional social norms and self-regulation that typically govern our in-person exchanges — and that medium, increasingly, shapes both what we know and what we think we know.” [Brossard/NY Times] —- Finally, forget the article topic. I want to see the Knicks wear these uniforms once this season! [Ball Don't Lie]
