1Q: Cavs capture Lottery’s top pick

  • What to do with it? There isn’t a superstar here, unlike last time when we picked Kyrie.

  • Nerlens Noel is barely over 200 lbs. He doesn’t have an offensive game. And he’ll be unable to play until December, at least, from his torn Achilles injury.

  • Otto Porter is solid, but not spectacular. Drafting him would go after a position of need. But you don’t do that with the 1st pick.

  • Ben McLemore is a good shooter.

  • Do we trade the pick for a veteran? If we don’t see a star, why would someone else trade with us?

 

2Q: Indians Imploded in Beantown

  • Chris Perez’s problems continue. He couldn’t protect a 3 run lead on Sunday. And he had to leave after injuring his arm. He’s on the DL with a sore right shoulder. The team recalled Nick Hagadone (again).

  • Hagadone gave up a 2R HR in Monday’s game in the 8th inning against the Reds to blow the game for the Tribe.

  • Vinnie Pestano blew Saturday’s game. He’s recently back from injury himself. Who steps in to close now?

  • Corey Kluber (1ER, 3H, 10K  in 6 ⅔ IP) pitched a really good game in a hitter’s park on Sunday. It’s a shame the team couldn’t hang on to win that one.

 

3Q: It was a rough week for the Tribe

  • After the 4 game sweep over Seattle, we dropped a pair at home to Detroit.

  • 2 months into the season, let’s look at the standings:

 

4Q: Who won your backyard BBQ over the weekend?

  • What was for dinner?

  • What secrets do you have for good grilling?
