viciedo

The biggest criticism of the Indians’ off-season would undoubtedly be their inability to acquire a bat that hits from the right side of the plate. That search is still ongoing, reportedly, and they could look to fill that slot with former White Sox outfielder Dayan Viciedo. Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reports the Indians

Making the case for a Mo Gotti return

Mo Williams

With the wine and gold on a roll, winners of 12 straight, it may seem like a peculiar time to nitpick the team. But, it’s easier to look upon the horizon with calm waters, and right now I want to look at the Cleveland Cavaliers’ options with that open roster spot ahead of the trade deadline

Buckeyes get Boiled down without Loving

Thad Matta Ohio State Buckeyes

It’s no secret that the Ohio State Buckeyes offense is largely built around D’Angelo Russell. It starts and ends with him. However, when the best supporting player as far as a consistent scoring threat misses action, it’s going to have an impact. That’s exactly what happened on Wednesday evening in West Lafayette.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made it a season-high nine wins in a row by dispatching the Sacramento Kings in the friendly confines of The Q by a 101-90 margin.
