The return of Panthro and Tristan’s lingering deal: While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! All in all, I’d say it’s been a pretty solid week since last Tuesday. Kevin Love agreed to return, Iman Shumpert is locked up, and now even Mo Williams is back! I don’t really know what to make of this return from Mo. On the one hand, from a purely sentimental aspect, I’m thrilled. I love Mo Williams. I know many fans belong to the “what have you done...

Ball Played: That’s the way Cookie crumbles

Three steps backward, four steps forward, three steps back. That sequence not only describes the past 10 games for the Cleveland Indians, but it also feels like an overall summary for the season. The Indians dig themselves a hole before starting to climb out of it, only to start digging again. In the end, this team has the talent to compete with the elite of the American League...

Mo Williams signs 2-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James proved that you can come home against all sorts of strange odds. That makes the latest bit of Cavaliers news almost pedestrian, but it sure is a lot of fun. Mo Williams appears to be following in James’ footsteps, just one season later as he’s reportedly spurning several other contenders to sign a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers worth $4.3 million. Who...

Report: Spurs sign David West

There were rumors that David West might sign with the Cavs just days ago. Alas, rather than come to Cleveland the veteran power forward has chosen to go, well, west, as he has signed a one-year contract with the San Antonio Spurs for the veteran’s minimum, worth about $1.4 million. West opted out of his contract with the Indiana Pacers, which would have paid him $12 million this...

LeBron James talks comedy, playing himself in Trainwreck, and his legacy

LeBron James is getting quite a bit of attention ahead of the release of the new Amy Schumer / Bill Hader movie Trainwreck. Mostly he’s talking about the film and what it’s like to play himself, but LeBron also has a chance to talk about whether or not he’s considered his own legacy. LeBron’s answer probably won’t shock anyone at this point. Whether or not he believes it...

A look at the young position-playing stars of MLB

There has been increased attention paid upon the youthful stars dominating the current MLB season, and such dominance could be seen in the 2015 MLB All Star starting rosters. A mere five of the 17 selected starters for the 2015 game were above the age of 29. And, one of those selections was the AL designated hitter Nelson Cruz. Baseball players have been promoted at younger ages...

Dwayne Bowe: I’m here to fill Josh Gordon’s shoes

Football season is coming, folks. With the Fourth of July in the rearview and the Indians continuing their up-and-down year, one new Brown is eager to get on the field and show what he can do. Former Kansas City Chief Dwayne Bowe is among a host of new wide receivers hoping to make up for the suspended Josh Gordon, or so he told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. “When Josh was...

C-Cap Recap: Despite Good Impressions. . .

The Cleveland Indians’ first visit to Pittsburgh in five years began with one of the most entertaining and encouraging wins of the season, but concluded on another flat note—with a pair of “woulda-coulda-shoulda” losses that left our promising char-grilled weekends slathered in Heinz 57 garbage sauce. At the official midway point of the 2015 campaign, Cleveland is now 38...

Indians miss out on an All-Star starter

Whether fan voting is fair or not, the Cleveland Indians, barring injury, will not have a starter for the 2015 All Star Game. Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who is arguably one of the best position players in baseball so far in 2015, had the best chance of being named a starter but did not receive enough fan votes to be one. In fact, he finished third among American League...

Apple Music, Johnny Manziel, and HELL YEAH U.S.A!: While We’re Waiting…

Hey what’s up hello, you guys. How are you all feeling after a fantastic weekend of Independence, NBA free agency rumors (Joe Johnson, eh?) and the United States Women’s National Team simply laying it to Japan in the World Cup Finals? I’ll be honest: I missed the first seven minutes of the match and turned on the television to find it already having been 2-0. The first thing...

NBA Rumors: Cavs and Spurs vying for David West

Kevin Love and Timofey Mozgov have been taken care of and Tristan Thompson is reportedly close to accepting a deal — although perhaps not as close as it seemed a couple days ago — but the Cleveland Cavaliers are still looking to shore up their front line.

WFNY’s Favorite National Anthems

Happy 4th, all. I trust that your day will be filled with family and friends, burgers and dogs, and fire and explosives. I hope that you’re able to truly kick back and relax on this summer holiday, and perhaps that you’ll give Old Glory that special look to let her know she’s still got it. I’ll keep it brief so you can get back to the grill. Here are a few of WFNY’s ...

Indians add international prospects

July 2 of each calendar year is the day that MLB holds their new crop of 16 year old international prospects from most Latin American countries. The risk can be a bit higher as these are much younger, less-developed players than are drafted through the Rule 4 MLB amateur draft, but the reward is still obtaining top tier talent at discount prices when they do pan out. The Cleveland...

Anthems and Echoes

Find the flag, hats off, no pushing. That is the refrain that countless little league coaches utter as their team stands along the first and third base lines1 just before a YouTube version of the national anthem blares over out-dated and blown-out speakers. Most players, parents, siblings, and coaches might have their minds focused elsewhere during this ritual, but there is still...

The Thursday matinee—played on a moldy green shag carpet inside a dark, charmless warehouse—saw the long-awaited return of Tampa hurler Matt Moore...

Days like July 1, 2015 don’t happen very often in any sports city, let alone Cleveland. Everything that was in play that could have swung up or down ended up kissing the sky. Kevin Love and Cleveland Indians and Iman Shumpert and the pure joy of knowing at least a little bit about a bright future.

Cavs on verge of shattering NBA's luxury tax record

With Wednesday’s flurry of long-term contracts, fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers now have a clearer picture of what the team will look like during the 2015-16 season.
