Cleveland sports fans should not expect respect nationally
Opinion by Tim Shirer
I I was recently watching a Cavaliers game, it was either the first or second round of the playoffs and as usual the ESPN broadcasters criticized everything the Cavaliers did while praising the team (Indiana Pacers or New York Knicks) the Cavaliers eventually eliminated. Of course, listening to this irritated me, but then a thought hit me, and it made a world of sense.  Click here for the whole story
Jesus Aguilar is the biggest mistake of Terry Francona's career
Opinion by Tim Shirer
Let’s be clear about one thing Terry Francona is without a doubt the best manager in baseball currently and yes, he has won two World Series as a manager. But let’s not ignore the fact that Francona will ignore or throw young players and rookies under the bus and protect veterans at all cost. I believe in the end this will be a major factor in how Francona’s career as a manger ends. I like Francona and I am thankful that he has been the Indians manager since 2013, it has been a great run. But Tuesday night in Washington at the 2018 Major League Baseball All-Star Game Francona’s biggest mistake of his career, one that will haunt him for years will be on display. That mistake is named Jesus Aguilar.  Click here for the whole story

(EASTLAKE, OH) - Recently prior to a Lake County Captains game at Classic Park I sat down and talked with former Captains manager (2012) and current Cleveland Indians Special Assistant Dave Wallace.

When you talk with Wallace it becomes apparent, very quickly where his priorities are. For Wallace family is and always will be first.

Wallace signed with the Indians as a non-drafted free agent out of Vanderbilt in 2001 and played in the Indians organization from 2002 to 2007. Wallace served as an assistant to the Indians coaching staff in 2009, 10. Wallace then became a manger in the Indians minor league system from 2011 to 2016 when he stepped down from his job as manager of the Akron RubberDucks.  Click here for the whole story

Cavs belted around by Nuggets 110-91

CAVALIERS BEAT WRITER
(CLEVELAND, OH) - Since the Cleveland Cavaliers dismissed Tyronn Lue roughly a week ago, the Cavs have looked like a different team under acting head coach Larry Drew. Drew, though, humbly offered before Thursday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets that their philosophies aren’t necessarily different, but their approaches may be.

“I don’t there’s too much difference,” Drew said. “I think the only difference is delivery of trying to get what you try to get out of them as a coach. What T-Lue tried to get out of them, I’m the same, but our deliveries may be a little different.”  Click here for the whole story
