Unplugging for Cavs playoff games, plus NFL draft – WFNY Podcast – 2015-04-21

After talking to Lane Adkins about the Browns, I dialed up Dave Sterling to talk about pretty much everything else. Before it was all done, we’d discussed being off of Twitter for the first Cavs playoff game, the idea of buying any shirt for $100, let alone a jersey, and teaching my son about the evils of advertising. Trying to watch sporting events with half an eye Twitter during...

The Tribe’s Ray Fosse — Roger Remembers

“You call the next one.” In disc yard golf, the winner of the previous ‘hole’ chooses and describes the next ‘hole.’ Roger twirled the heavy Frisbee around his index finger. “Over the driveway, around the garage to the left, and hit the corner of the wooden fence in the side yard. The driveway, my truck, all trees, and any other part of the fence are one-stroke penalties...

Ball Played: Indians deliver goodnight gut punch

The pitching matchup for Monday’s game was strongly in favor of the Cleveland Indians. Trevor Bauer had been the best pitcher on the staff in the early season having given up a mere two runs in twelve innings pitched, while striking out nineteen and allowing a total of thirteen baserunners. The Chicago White Sox countered with John Danks who had yet to complete six innings in either...

Kyrie Irving: This is the greatest feeling in the world

Fresh off of his Game 1 heroics against the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving sat down with Turner Sports’ Rachel Nichols1 to discuss his last four seasons in the NBA and what it means to finally make the playoffs as one of the more exciting young players in the league today. “It’s the greatest feeling in the world, as simply as I can put that, being out...

Kyrie Irving, working as intended: While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! As long as we don’t talk about what happened with the Cleveland Indians last night, it will remain a happy Tuesday. We still have another week until the NFL draft, so perhaps we can talk football a little more next week. But the Cleveland Cavaliers have another playoff game tonight, so that is certainly something a little more exciting that I would rather talk...

2015 NFL draft and free agency for the Browns with Lane Adkins – WFNY Podcast – 2015-04-20

Lane Adkins of The Orange and Brown report joined me to discuss all things Browns. He wasn’t on to promote anything in particular, but I’ve been a subscriber to the OBR for quite a while and I plugged it for him. Here’s the rest of the stuff we talked about. Where are the Cleveland Browns today as an organization? What are Johnny Manziel’s chances to be a starter after...

Watch Craig on “All In” on WKYC – Cavs Playoff Game 1

This morning, I jumped onto the WKYC Cavs web show for the NBA playoffs. It’s called “All In” and I’ll be on occasionally throughout the NBA playoffs. As we stated on the show, here’s hoping it goes on for a very long time. It is co-hosted by John Anderson and Will Ujek from WKYC. Tune in Wednesday morning at 10:00 AM to see me talk about the previous night’s Cavs game...

Browns sign Johnson Bademosi and Craig Robertson, Gipson next?

The Cleveland Browns have signed two of their restricted free agents, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN. As the deadline looms for the Browns to come to agreement with their restricted free agents, it is big for the team to get two of them done and off their plate. The major contract details have not been released yet, but all along the Browns had maintained that they wanted to keep...

The Franchise Quarterback: An unconventional approach to conventional wisdom

Today’s conventional wisdom holds that the key to success in the National Football League is finding the Holy Grail: The Franchise Quarterback. The pursuit of this goal—this Superhero and Knight in Shining Armor—is usually discussed as if everyone knows it is the most important factor in a team’s level of success, with no close second. But the term has been so misused, confused...

Tristan Thompson finishes fifth in Sixth Man of the Year voting

After dealing with Cleveland fans debating his worth four three-plus seasons, Cavalier power forward Tristan Thompson silenced some doubters on Monday afternoon with news that he finished fifth in 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year voting. Receiving six second-place votes and 15 third-place votes, Thompson finished behind Toronto’s Lou Williams and three others in getting recognition...

Indians Series Summary No. 4: L-W-L and gratitude for picture-in-picture

The good news going into the Cleveland Indians’ fourth series of 2015 is that they weren’t scheduled to face any left-handed starters. The bad news is that it didn’t seem to matter. They still couldn’t hit. Over the three games in Minneapolis, the Twins started Mike Pelfrey, Phil Hughes, and Trevor May, all righties. They all had solid starts and between them and the Twins’...

Tashaun Gipson skipping Browns offseason program

While Pro Bowl safety Tashaun Gipson awaits a much-deserved contract extension from the Cleveland Browns, the restricted free agent will not be joining the rest of his teammates for their short offseason program in Berea this week. With negotiations of a contract not going as planned earlier this spring, the Browns offered Gipson a second-round tender which would pay him $2.4 million...

The Casual Fan’s Guide to Hating the 2014-15 Boston Celtics

The Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the playoffs. Time for heated competition and even more heated rivalry. Some of my favorite playoff memories were forged not in loving the Cavs, but in hating a series opponent. But if you are like me, the murky depths of the Eastern Conference haven’t exactly been on your radar this year. In the first round the Cavs have drawn the hated Boston...

Cavalier Film Room: Love in the post(season)

Both the Cleveland Cavaliers and their power forward Kevin Love looked a little dicey in the first half of Game 1 on Sunday afternoon at The Q. The team with half of its rotation experiencing its first playoff minutes looked the part. Love, however, showed some drastic improvement to his approach in the post during the second half. He scored 13 of his 19 points after the break...

Cavs Big Win, Tebow Back and Patent Trolls: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Monday, you guys. How good does it feel to have playoff basketball back in the city of Cleveland? The last four years, all we’ve had to cling to at this time of year was the potential for temperatures in the 60s. Now, we get those sweet spring days but now with more championship potential. So many good things to take away from Sunday’s big win: LeBron James, playoff form...

Cavalier Film Room: Switch-happy on the screen

As we get ready to kick off the Cavaliers’ pursuit of the Larry O’Brien trophy on Sunday afternoon at the Q, I wanted to cover one last theme before the Cavs and Celtics tip-off. At times, the Cavaliers get a little excessive when it comes to switching on high ball screens involving a guard and a big. One perfect example of this was the night of Kyrie Irving’s 57-point performance...

Danny Salazar Recalled from Triple-A

With Carlos Carrasco (somehow) only needing an extra day of rest before his next start following a line drive striking him in his face Tuesday night, the Cleveland Indians had to make a decision on how to on the mound on Saturday, in Minnesota. In turn, they have recalled starting pitcher Danny Salazar and optioned right-handed reliever Austin Adams to Columbus. Salazar was one of...

C-Cap Recap: Perfection to Dejection

If ever a baseball game were capable of halting and reversing an entire city’s blossoming springtime enthusiasm—sending every new leaf burrowing right back into its bud and every twittering songbird fleeing for Florida—it would be tonight’s 3-2 Indians loss to the Minnesota Twins. Hyperbole? Maybe. But it’s 12:24 on a Friday night, and much like how Britt McHenry feels...

MLB payrolls continue to rise

Major League Baseball continues to be the one American professional sport without a cap on payroll. As such, the spending habits of teams oftentimes inspires debate. Here at WFNY in 2015, we have already featured some ways to potentially tweak the MLB CBA in order to balance the inequities. Thursday, Jayson Stark of ESPN wrote an article describing the escalating payrolls around...

J.R. Smith: 'I don’t think anyone can beat us'

On a Cavaliers team relatively light on playoff experience, J.R. Smith is something of a postseason veteran. Whereas Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love have famously never made the NBA playoffs — the same goes for Tristan Thompson and Matthew Dellavedova, albeit less famously — Smith has played in 51 career playoff games between his time with the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks...

Best skills of the 2015 NFL Draft: Defensive Front Seven

The 2015 NFL Draft is under two weeks away with excitement building every day. Over the course of the last month or so, I have released my top five players at each position and also my top 20 prospects on my big board. So, I have moved my focus to individual skills in the draft. Each player has a different skillset that defines who he is as a player. But, which players have the best...

Johnny: “I take full responsibility for my actions”

If he has grown up as much as he says he has over the past few months, perhaps it’s time we start calling him Jonathan Football. Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel released a statement through the team Friday, his first since being released from rehab. He hit all the beats one might expect from such a statement, thanking the Browns (and Browns fans) for their support, apologizing...
