A quick note in the LA Times on Saturday has Laker fans buzzing about Baron: “The Lakers are curious to see if veteran point guard Baron Davis gets cut by Cleveland. He has two years and $28.7 million left on his contract, though he can be signed for substantially less than that.” [Mike Bresnahan/LA Times]

Interesting discussion on the Indians most valuable rookie of 2011: “Kipnis was great. It’s amazing how quickly he adjusted to MLB pitching and he’s already one of my favorite players. He’s incredibly fun to watch, and I see him anchoring the middle of the order for a long time. But given his extremely limited playing time this year—it’s not his fault that he was limited to 36 games, but he was—I have to give my vote to Vinnie Pestano.” [Wahoo's On First]


Browns looking to avenge Week 1 loss: “That game is the difference in the standings right now. If it had gone the other way, both teams would be at 5-5 right now. In a way, though, the way the Bengals won the game is what they’ve been doing all season. They have fallen behind badly to quite a few teams, only to come back with some magic from Dalton and the defense. They almost did it to Pittsburgh and Baltimore over the past two weeks, but their efforts fell short. Meanwhile, after that first game, Cleveland went on to really struggle offensively without running back Peyton Hillis, who was mostly out with a hamstring injury. Over the past two weeks, we’ve seen a lot more positives on the offensive side of the ball, and the defense continues to limit the amount of points the opposition throws up on the board. Hillis might be returning this week for the first time since October. Don’t count the Browns out yet, at least when it comes to making some noise against their division rivals.” [Chris Pokorny/Dawgs by Nature]


OSU’s winning streak over UM comes to an end: “We knew the streak wouldn’t live forever, but it’s still painful to see it end. Even a speech from Jim Tressel prior to the team leaving Columbus wasn’t enough to get the job done. This team dealt with too much, both in the form of injuries and off-the-field stuff, but they fought until the end. You can’t take that away from them.

And oh boy, next year…” [Jason/Eleven Warriors]


After being DFA’d last week, “Sweet” Luis Valbuena was shipped off to Toronto for “cash considerations.” Wails were heard on the Eastside of Cleveland, likely emanating from our man TD’s house. [Via @TribeInsider]


A little more support for Colt McCoy, and a plea to move on: “One thing we probably need to do is stop reading these kinds of stories. We are so tired of talking about last year and what was, to some, the brief Camelot of the 10-22 Mangini era. Those days are gone and, thankfully, they are not coming back.” [Titus Pullo/Red Right 88]


A list of things the Cavaliers need to get to work on, now that the lockout has ended. It’s long, perhaps even laundry length. [Sam Amico/FSOhio]
