FA target #1: Keenan Lewis

. Update: Jamison Hensley gets it: There’s no question that Lewis is the Steelers’ top priority in free agency. But it’s going to be difficult to keep him considering he’s a rising player at a coveted position and the Steelers are cap-strapped again. Lewis stepped up in his first season as a starter, leading the AFC with 23 passes broken...

Trade Chris Perez now.

So.  Michael Bourn.  Didn’t see that coming.  But honestly, I wasn’t paying close attention. I noticed Francona, noticed Swisher.  ‘Nice name brands,’ I thought, ‘but window dressing.’  Mark Reynolds, Brett Myers, Drew Stubbs, Mike Aviles… these seem second tier acquisitions to me, but don’t go by me:  I still value the batting average and RBI stats.  I think batters’ strikeout...

Adventures in Rumor Mongering.

We always feel a little guilty piling on with MKC stories.  It reminds us of the unkind comments about Terri Garr’s weight gain and then to find out she has MS and the steroid treatments can cause that. . But on the other hand, it isn’t like that at all since lazy reporting isn’t a congenital physical ailment.  So, having shown...

In praise of the Great Front Four.

It’s 2007. You and I were enthralled with a 10 win Browns team. But there was another big story in 2007. There was a team that went undefeated in the regular season. Their average score was 37 to 17.

NFL ‘player safety’ vs. ‘the legal hit.’

UPDATE:  KSK is on the job with a post that nails this subject today (2/5). UPDATE #2:  The Baltimore Ravens team site’s coverage reads:  Jimmy Smith Saves Best For Last. ___ Decent Super Bowl last night. I had the Ravens and called Flacco playing well.  Yay, I got one right.  (In fairness, I credit to Colin Kaepernick for steering me...

WRONG. The correct answer was Slumlording the Indians.

. We had 586 IP-address-restricted (thus unique) replies to the poll question: Which Modell activity is most disqualifying for Canton? Below is why the most correct answer was: Slumlording the Indians. .

Art Modell’s ties to bookies and gamblers.

One item that has been strangely absent from the Modell HOF talk is Modell’s documented relationships with many … how shall we say it? We’ll just say it:  Modell was connected to many mob guys. I don’t know why this hasn’t been brought up earlier.  I only stumbled onto the subject by accident.  There are 39 HOF voters and all...

Clearing the decks.

Frozen with indecision on the direction to take with the next post,,, so hows about a Frowndup so to speak?  One replete with employment of the royal ‘we’ .. use of which is also a subject of indecision this morning. _____ Can you write about the history of the game without using that person’s name?™ We were struck to find...
