1Q: Tribe Finds Their Winning Ways at home

  • After losing each of their first two series following the ASG break on the road, the Tribe came home to sweep the Rangers.

  • We blew a 7-1 lead on Friday but came back to win in 11 innings.

  • Masterson outdueled Yu Darvish on Saturday in a 1-0 shutout. Credit Chris Perez with his 14th save.

  • Ubaldo was just as good Sunday as the Tribe won more comfortably, 8-0.

  • Shutting down the potent Rangers offense is a nice feat.

  • GIambi hits a walk-off in 9th on Tuesday to beat CHISOX. McAllister pitching well since coming back from DL.

 

2Q: Trading Deadline is Wednesday

  • We picked up some bullpen help Tuesday, though Rzepczynski was terrible in April with the big league Cardinals and doesn’t fare well against righties. (we traded Juan Herrera)

  • We don’t really expect a big move, do we?

  • A power hitting cleanup hitter would be nice. Maybe a 3rd baseman? (Chisenhall/Reynolds are not getting it done)

 

3Q: Browns Camp Opens

Main stories this year will be:

  • QB competition. Can Weeden thrive in Norv’s vertical passing game or will Jason Campbell challenge him for the starting spot?

  • Horton’s defense. How much better will our defense be with Horton’s attack style, the switch back to the 3-4 and all of the new players (Kruger, Mingo, Bryant, etc)

  • Trent Richardson’s health. RBs always thrive under Norv Turner (Emmit Smith, Ladanian Tomlinson) because he likes to pound the ball as much as throw downfield. Can T-Rich be our workhorse or will he be injury prone again?


4Q: Problems for Ohio State

  • We’re a month away from kickoff against Buffalo.

  • What players got in trouble?

  • Which players should we be excited to see?

    • Will Braxton show improvement in Yr2 under Urban?

    • Can OSU walk through a weak BigTen again?

  • How are the national publications ranking the Buckeyes?
