Cavs “firmly in lead” to acquire Kevin Love

Andrew Wiggins is one step closer to being an official member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Whether or not he ultimately reaches that destination remains to be seen. The Golden State Warriors were long considered to be the Cavs’ lone rival in obtaining Love as they refuse to include swingman Klay Thompson in discussions given Love’s potential to leave after one season. ESPN.com’s...

Bauer, Swisher, and a theory on baseball aesthetics

Jon is in a bit of a writing rut, so he’s asking the WFNY gang to help him get out of it. After circulating some juicy topics around WFNY Headquarters, Craig said he was interested in talking Trevor Bauer, Nick Swisher, Travis Hafner, and what it means to like some players more than others.  So we did that. We’ve got some more of these in the hopper and we’ll try to keep...

Jason Kipnis still bothered by oblique

  Jason Kipnis was named the American League Player of the week on Monday, but readily admitted that he has not felt the same since straining his oblique muscle back in April. “I wouldn’t use the word progress, I’d use the word adjustment,” said Kipnis. “As far as the oblique goes, it’s going to be there all year. It’s not going to go away until the offseason. What...

Mike Pettine: Josh Gordon is a Cleveland Brown

In a recent interview with The Akron Beacon-Journal, Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine reiterated that the team has no plans to cut maligned wide receiver Josh Gordon in the wake of his troubled off-season. “We’re firm,” said Pettine. “We want to find that middle ground. Josh is a Cleveland Brown. We want to do what’s best for him. We have a player that potentially...

Cleveland Browns Film Room: A look at Pierre Desir

Over the next couple weeks on WFNY, I will be breaking down the film on all seven draft picks of the Cleveland Browns. As fans, we often rely on mainstream draft analysts to give us certain traits and characteristics that we use to form our opinions. Rather than simply tell you positives and negatives, the goal of this series is to better inform you by showing evidence, in GIF form...

Indians 3, Twins 4: It smelled funny from the start

8:29 PM – We join our heroes in Minneapolis, during the top of the second inning after an uneventful first. Much has been made in the booth of the fact that this is the Indians’ first trip back to Target Field since clinching their 2013 playoff spot.  That is somewhat hard to believe.  I find it much easier to believe that Roberto Perez just grounded into an inning-ending double...

Joe Haden shoos away kid in a Hines Ward jersey

Joe Haden was (probably) kidding, but he shooed away a child in a Hines Ward jersey who was in line for an autograph. As we all know, you should report child abuse and I’m not talking about Joe Haden. To think that some awful father in Northeast Ohio would put his kid in a Stillers jersey for an event featuring Joe Haden is just criminal. @ESPNCleveland Funny video of Joe Haden...

Jason Whitlock says Canadian players “don’t want it as much” as other players

Last night on Keith Olbermann’s show, Jason Whitlock was discussing his recent podcast with LeBron James’ partner Maverick Carter. He and Olbermann got to talking about – what else – Andrew Wiggins and Kevin Love. That’s when Jason Whitlock made some pretty wide sweeping generalizations while vaguely applying it to “smart basketball people,” while also specifically...

Is there a difference between lucky and good? While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! I have to be honest, for sports fans like myself, the period from MLB post-All Star break to the start of the NFL season can be a bit of a drag. It’s not that I dislike watching the Indians. In fact, I have them on right now as I am writing this (yes, I write these on Monday nights, not Tuesday mornings). But in terms of really exciting events in sports, there...

We took our seats as men in the independent sports media environment to discuss… women in sports media. We talked about Erin Andrews, Suzyn Waldman and a host of other females in the game. We talked about the opportunities or lack thereof. We also discussed the fact that we can’t...

Mike Krzyzewski would trade Wiggins for Love “without hesitancy”

Coach K was on CBS Sports Radio and talked about the Cavaliers and trading for Kevin Love. “I think there’s absolutely not one second of hesitancy,” Krzyzewski said on The John Feinstein Show. “I’d trade for Kevin Love. That’s not saying anything about any of the other (players involved in the deal). Love’s an All-Star.” Krzyzewski mentioned the window of opportunity...

The Top Five Most Intriguing Players in Cleveland Browns Training Camp

As we’re on the precipice of Cleveland Browns training camp, I couldn’t be more excited to see who steps up. The Browns have a lot of question marks as any team should coming off a four-win season. The good news is that there are a lot of new faces to address many of the obvious holes we all complained about at the end of last season. Offensive line, cornerback, linebacker and...

Indians Twitter account gets defensive of ownership’s cheap reputation

The Cleveland Indians ownership has taken a lot of bullets over the years for being “cheap.” While that’s a relative term in a game that is notoriously unbalanced in terms of payrolls, if nothing else, it’s fair to call it a facile and slightly lazy dig at this point. I’m not saying you can’t make the argument that the Dolans are cheap, but it would take far more than...

Video: Johnny Manziel and other rookies react to their Madden ratings

We know that Johnny Manziel doesn’t lack confidence. He was a bit humbled by falling on draft night to 22nd. The good folks at EA Sports may have given him a second helping of humble pie. Several rookies were filmed for their reaction to their Madden rating for the upcoming release of the franchise video game. As a rule, rookies are typically given low scores until their play on...

Second-half Storylines: What are you watching?

The Cleveland Indians started things off with a relative bang, taking three of four in Detroit. As we close in on the month of August, the Tribe stands 4.5 games behind the Tigers and will need to piece it all together heading into the fall if postseason play is to happen for the second consecutive year.

Indians interested in reliever Joaquin Benoit

While David Price’s name continues to be bantered about, the Cleveland Indians join the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates as teams interested in San Diegot Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman iterates that while the Indians haven’t established themselves as ‘buyers’ heading into the deadline, they could be leaning that way. Benoit is owed $8 million next...

Tribe weekend recap: Kipnis…back? King Kluber, The Carrasco effect, and rotation rotation

If your Cleveland Indians were going to get back in the thick of the AL Central and Wild Card races, coming out of the blocks strongly is of the utmost importance. An 11-game, three-city road trip against three divisional foes was on the schedule. Things got started in Detroit with four games in three days. I wouldn’t say this was a make-or-break weekend for the Tribe, but how...

Kyle Shanahan, Miracle Worker? While We’re Waiting…

It’s Monday, Monday, gotta get down on Monday…. I’m trying to not get excited. Last year at this time, we were discussing the merits of Norv Turner’s offense and how it was going to be night-and-day compared to that of Pat Shurmur. Gone was the West Coast; here was the vertical game that included the tight end to a larger degree. And while Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon were...

Cavaliers planning to sign Wiggins next week?

The Cleveland Cavaliers are close to signing first-round pick Andrew Wiggins, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

Once a rookie signs, the team cannot trade him until 30 days after he signs the contract. Windhorst reports that the Cavs are waiting...
