My wife sat beside me watching tonight’s Cavs game and LeBron’s fourth quarter domination. As we took in the show, she asked a very easy question. “Was Jordan ever this good?” she inquired. With the follow-up…”I don’t remember ever watching someone like this.” My reply was equally as straightforward. Yes, he was that good. We have seen this sort of phenomenon before.” [Legend of Cecilio Guante]
Best Target Field review yet: “I could write thousands of words about the various features that make Target Field such a wonderful place to watch a game, but all of that is available elsewhere. What I do want to tell you about covering a game here is that my favorite feature has to be the men’s restroom in the press box? Why? Because it actually is a men’s restroom… with multiple urinals and everything. At the Metrodome, the press box bathroom was a unisex unit with one toilet and a door that may or may not have locked.” [CastroTurf]

“The famine is widespread and growing as the Indians’ offense, thought to be the strength of the team, has been scuffling…to put it charitably. Now that Rusty Branyan has returned, the amalgamations of the lineup look to vary even more as Austin Kearns and MaTola (and perhaps Hafner) will start moving around and sitting to accommodate Rusty’s “presence” in the lineup four days a week. Truthfully, as for the whole ingratiation of Rusty Branyan into the mix and how it affect Kearns and MaTola, I’m not even that concerned with it other than wanting to see MaTola in the lineup as frequently as his body (hip and toe, notably) allows because if you’re looking for that RH hitter that even has a ounce of a chance to be the homegrown middle-of-the-order hitter that’s going to break up the LH monotony that resides in the Indians’ lineup, it’s Matty MaTola…” [The DiaTribe]
And finally, a second-day mock draft via Scout.com [Chris Steuber/Scout.com]
Plenty of Cavs, Tribe and Browns coverage for the remainder of the day… Stay tuned.
