    Is there a crucial message from Brook Park voters turning down two tax measures by significant margins? One was three to one and the other two to one defeat in an election a week ago. A harsh rebuke. My journalistic take is this: Workers squeezed by years of no or little income increases and a tough job climate - are telling representatives that they don't have the money to give more to local governments. Finally. They expressed their dissatisfaction at the ballot box in no uncertain terms. (Unfortunately, voters are playing suckers to sports franchises that have the ability to pay themselves…

    It says a lot about the kind of season Indians starter Corey Kluber is having that Thursday could be considered a bad day at the office. In what has been an incredible second half for Cleveland's rotation leader, Kluber finally flinched in what would normally be deemed a decent effort. Given the high standards the right-hander has set of late, he looked to be laboring on a day when a lack of run support led to a 4-1 loss to the Twins at Target Field.

In the sixth inning of the Tribe's 4-1 loss to the Twins, Gomes exited with concussion-like symptoms, but the catcher's ailment was not technically classified as a concussion. Gomes was evaluated by a doctor on site at Target Field and will continue to be monitored by the Indians overnight.

    22 Aug 2014 | 12:26 pm
    Even after last Monday night’s lackluster passing performances by Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel, head coach Mike Pettine called for an end to the quarterback competition, naming Hoyer the starter. Whether you believe the he “won” the job rather than had it handed to him, only one thing seemed clear: Manziel is not ready to start week one. While re-watching the game, the thing that struck me about Hoyer was his ability to stand in the pocket, go through his reads, and deliver the ball. Against the St. Louis Rams, the opposing offenses must focus on neutralizing the pass…

    Whoops! There it was. For the second consecutive series, the Cleveland Indians failed to close out the final game of a could-have-been sweep. There are bound to be games where things simply don’t click—bats go cold, an erstwhile rock solid bullpen implodes, Ryan Raburn spikes a ball into left-center field. Things happen. But during a time in the season where that number in the Games Behind column seems to be stuck at 4.5, with each game signaling one less chance at closing the gap, late-season games tend to have a larger mental impact than the ones which were completed in the…

He parties too much and values his personal life more than his honing his craft. We’ve heard it all. By now you know that the Browns lightning rod of a rookie Quarterback lost the latest QB derby to Brian Hoyer, who will take the reins and lead the team into Pittsburgh on September 6.  ((I still maintain this was their plan all along.))
