Terrelle Pryor finishes preseason with zero catches, could still make team

The Browns’ 24-0 loss to the Chicago Bears wasn’t the pass catching debut that Terrelle Pryor hoped for. He was flagged for an illegal formation penalty. He didn’t catch a pass. He didn’t even see a target. He was, however, a featured part of the game plan, which could bode well for him as he hopes to survive the final cuts of the preseason. “We had a list of things that...

Hail to the NFL scrubs

There will always be more of us than them. And, the higher up the competitive ladder one climbs, even more are added to our ranks. The quarterbacks and the star wide receiver might get their name in the paper. The linebacker with the sacks and the cornerback with the interceptions will play to the crowd and bask in the adulation. But we are there too. We put in hours and hours of...

How the Buckeyes have fared when entering the season as No. 1

Last year, college football fans, especially TCU and Baylor supporters, hit the roof when the Ohio State Buckeyes earned a berth in the inaugural College Football Playoff. The Bucks embraced the underdog spirit in a Sugar Bowl victory over Alabama and title game triumph against Oregon. When the confetti fell in Dallas, OSU concluded their odyssey from “we aren’t even supposed...

Indians to promote Giovanni Soto, Michael Martinez from minors

As we roll into the month of September, MLB teams gradually are activating more and more players to their roster space. Throughout the season, teams were constricted to only activating 25 players (26 on doubleheaders). But now, they can utilize all 40 of their MLB-signed players. Roster moves also can happen around the fringes to give a few intriguing minor league names a September...

Phil Taylor’s knee kept Steelers from signing him

It was a bit surprising to see the Cleveland Browns cut Phil Taylor knowing that they would have to pay him anyway. Speculation among Browns fans was that the team just thought one of the younger guys could help them. After the defensive tackle visited the Pittsburgh Steelers, who decided not to sign him, we might know a bit more as to why the Browns were so convinced. Phil Taylor’s...

Ball Played: Blue Jays deliver knuckle(ball) sandwich to Indians

Wednesday was why Tuesday’s game hurt so bad. The margin for error with the Cleveland Indians postseason chances is too thin to allow potential wins to slip away as there will still be some games that just do not go well from the beginning. Wednesday was just such a day as the Toronto Blue Jays jumped to a big early lead and held onto it throughout in a 5-1 victory over the Indians...

Browns & Buckeyes, the USSR, and DMB: While We’re Waiting…

Good Thursday to you, WFNYers. May whatever supreme being you pray to or defy bless you with a wonderful day. The Indians undid more of their feel-good six-game winning streak with a 5-1 loss on Wednesday to those executive-stealers from Toronto (just because I regard Shapiro’s departure with ambivalence doesn’t mean I can’t hate them for it!). Meanwhile, the Cavs are dormant...

Lonnie Chisenhall named ESPN Sweet Spot’s DPOM for August

If you’re surprised by the headline, we wouldn’t blame you. If it seems like just last month that Lonnie Chisenhall was a struggling third baseman who was sent down to Triple-A to work out a few kinks, well—it was. Since being promoted back to the big league team, and completely changing positions, Chisenhall has completely reinvented himself as a player. So much so that...

2015 Cleveland Indians: Version 2.0

One might find themselves wondering how the Cleveland Indians have been able to charge back into contention for the American League postseason. How did a team that started the year 7-14 in April become a team that could sweep a fellow Wild Card contender in the Los Angeles Angels and then give the American League favorite Toronto Blue Jays all that they could handle? One might think...

Last year’s “What the?” LeBron (the 11) included eight different product design elements from past signature shoes, including 20 different graphics and color choices...

Suppose the Browns didn’t make any trades in the 2011 draft

Phil Taylor being cut means more than one very large professional athlete losing his job. Big Phil’s departure has become a microcosm of all that is wrong with the Browns, an indicator of years of mismanagement at the team-building level, as he was the last of the players the Browns obtained in their 2011 draft day trade with the Atlanta Falcons. Cleveland sent Atlanta the No...

Tuesday should have simply been known for The Slide. The title above should be “Ball Played: The Slide” and the majority of the discussion should be centered around that magnificent play.

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. The Tribe dropped a tough one last night. Cody Anderson went six very solid innings, surrendering just three hits and two runs, both of which came on sacrifice flies. Yan Gomes hit two solo homers, including a shot to center that tied the game up in the ninth. Francisco Lindor legged out a double in the top of the tenth, but the Indians couldn’t plate...
