- 44-41. 3 GB Chicago.
- Looked good all weekend against Tampa, until their late collapse on Sunday.
- They have played better against lefties in the past week, but there are still holes in the lineup and the starting rotation.
- Ubaldo pitched well on Saturday.
- Masterson was pretty bad in Friday’s 10-3 loss.

Qtr2: Cavs part of Blockbuster Trade ??
- Rumors swirled through the NBA Sunday night that the Cavs were being included in a three team blockbuster trade that would send Dwight Howard to New Jersey.
- The Cavs would get PF Kris Humphries in the deal, but the team is demanding more since they could sign Humphries as an unrestricted free agent if they wanted to without being part of a trade. Mike shared his thoughts on this mess in a blog post on Monday.
- Those rumors died down by Tuesday as reports came in that the Cavs had backed off being included in the trade.
- Isn’t there some irony that the Cavs would be part of a trade to help build a super team when we were the “victim” of that when LBJ left?
Qtr3: Will the Browns show any interest in Baylor WR Josh Gordon?
- He declared for Thursday’s Supplemental Draft.

- Scouts say Gordon is bigger, faster, stronger than teammate Kendall Wright.
- But he hasn’t played since 2010 due to off the field problems.
- Will the Browns surrender a 2013 draft pick to get him now? Weeden needs weapons.
