Terry Francona’s Loyalty Leads to Questionable Decisions

I don’t get it. I’ve always said Terry Francona is good at managing a lineup. He seems to have a knack for knowing when a player needs a day off. But I have been critical of his in-game decisions forever. Last night’s game against the White Sox just added more fuel my fire.

I broke one of my personal fantasy rules last year. I put someone from the Pittsburgh Steelers on my roster. I NEVER wanted Steelers on my roster because I NEVER wanted to have to root for any Steelers player ever. But that changed last year. I made a trade for Le’Veon Bell. It’s a move that not helped get my team to the fantasy championship, but it taught me something about the Browns.

Not Time To Wave Baker Mayfield Flag

 

It’s the second day of training camp and the Browns quarterbacks are in the far corner of the practice facility. They’re tucked away from most of the crowd, lining up on the goal line, and attempting to toss footballs into a garbage can in the back corner of the end zone. There weren’t many people watching, but I was, and it did not take long for Baker Mayfield to steal the show.

Greg Williams Gets It

I got the chance to attend Cleveland Browns training camp the other day. It was fun. I’ve attended Browns training camp in the past, but this one was different.  Partly because I got the chance to talk to Browns Defensive Coordinator Greg Williams for a few minutes. What he told me would make any Browns fan feel really good about the upcoming season.

Quick Reads with Strong Takes on Cleveland Sports!

No one loves their sports teams like Cleveland sports fans. I’m one of you. I was born and raised five minutes from Downtown Cleveland and I (like you) have been through it all. One thing you quickly learn about Cleveland sports fans is how we love talking about our Cleveland sports teams. I’m hoping this blog provides a safe place we can all do this together. And I think I may have figured out what makes us all so crazy about our teams.
