Reds Manager Bryan Price is Tribe Manager Lou Boudreau? Roger Recalls

So, I received a text from my brother Roger a few weeks back, after the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Boston Celtics to move on to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Bryan Price? It was strange to see his name come up. I live in Cincinnati, and my impression was there was nothing very remarkable about the guy. He seemed well-liked enough as manager of the Reds. He’d been their...

The case for the Browns to just go for two

The NFL changed the extra point, pushing the kick back to the 15-yard line, turning it into a 33-yard field goal. The two-point conversion will remain from the two-yard line. It has me thinking about what the Browns should do after scoring touchdowns. There will be obvious debates back and forth about statistics and there will be definitive statements about what a team “has...

Cavalier Film Room: The LeBron Squeeze

The Cavaliers did their job on the trip to Atlanta in stealing homecourt away from the Hawks in Game 1. After boasting a 16-point lead with six and a half minutes remaining, the wine and gold had their lead trimmed to just four in the final minute. This was due to a mix of turnovers, bad shots, missed shots, and stall ball all led by LeBron James. After J.R. Smith did all but end...

Next Up: Indians vs. Reds at home

After the Cleveland Indians’ successful seven-game road trip to Arlington and Chicago from May 15 to May 21, the Sports Cynics Club might be looking for the darker hidden meaning of it all, but let us not be tempted to turn the Tribe’s growing success against left-handed starters into a left-handed compliment. On the trip just ended they faced five southpaw starters and went...

C-Cap Recap: That’s Called a Winning Streak

Had this game been played in Cleveland, one could only assume they would have dropped confetti from the upper deck. The Indians have won three in a row! It’s their first such string of the entire season, but more importantly, the low-stress 5-2 win over the White Sox Thursday night gave the Tribe an honest-to-gosh series win against a divisional foe (they had been 0-7-1 in such...

Very happy to be back and hope you all have a great holiday weekend! Now, let’s go. Should the NFL punt on punishment? It’s a curious time in the history of the NFL. Rather than talking about...

The gamble of acquiring J.R. Smith pays big for Cavaliers

Me-first. Stat Seeker. Ball Hog. Off-court distraction. These were just some of the descriptions that J.R. Smith has been called in his career prior to arriving in Cleveland to join the Cavaliers. Many believed he was unable to contribute to a winning team because of his attitude and playing style. But the Cavaliers needed an upgrade on the wing and decided to take the gamble of...

Audio: WFNY’s Will Gibson talking Cavs-Hawks Game 1 on Cleveland.com

The Cleveland Cavaliers took Game 1 from the Atlanta Hawks behind a huge shooting night from J.R. Smith, the aggressiveness of LeBron James (early, at least), and the rebounding of Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov. Atlanta appears to have lost Demarre Carroll to a knee injury, while Kyrie Irving still isn’t right for the Cavs. Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com was nice enough to...

Ball Played: Shaun Marcum rules the night for Indians

Shaun Marcum is the type of pitcher who is easy to root for. He was not a blue chip prospect, and he actually transferred from the University of Missouri to Missouri State University to get noticed by MLB scouts as he excelled on their 2003 College World Series team. Despite that achievement, however, he was still not deemed an elite prospect due to his relatively short stature...
