Wild ride continues for the Indians

The Indians haven’t lost yet in the postseason after taking a 2-0 game lead on the Blue Jays and sweeping the Boston Red Sox. Needless to say this has been an incredible ride.

Few of us could have predicted what we’re seeing after Carlos Carrasco was lost for the season with Danny Salazar already injured. Of course we all know how that led to Paul Hoynes writing off the Indians, only to get ripped not once but twice by Trevor Bauer on Twitter, with Hoynes finally admitting he was wrong after the Tribe swept the Red Sox.

The Indians are doing this with great pitching despite those injuries, with Cory Kluber living up to his role as staff ace and Andrew Miller redefining dominance out of the bullpen. They’re also getting timely hits from Francisco Lindor even as the offense has been held mostly in check by Toronto’s pitching staff.

This series is far from over, but this 2-0 start has been fun to watch.

Has Steph Curry become a jinx?

I love this tweet, as we see Steph Curry with the Carolina Panthers, the Boston Red Sox and the San Francisco Giants. Throw in his own collapse with the Warriors against the Cavs and you have quite a year!

2017 Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Preview

Last season was pretty amazing for the Cavaliers. They managed to do the unthinkable. Rarely who believed that they could manage to do what they did. Even now, when the new season is about to begin, people, especially Cavs’ fans can’t stop talking about that amazing Game 7. For most players it will probably be the best game of their lives and they’ll keep going back to it.

Malik Hooker leads young Ohio State defense

Redshirt sophomore Malik Hooker is off to a great start with three interceptions after two games as the Buckeyes head to Norman this week to face the Oklahoma Sooners. You can see Hooker’s pick-six from the Tulsa game in the video above as the young safety read the play perfectly.

Hooker gives Ohio State a real ball hawk in the secondary as he seems to have the instincts of a great safety like Ed Reed.

Now lets see how Hooker and the young defense handles Oklahoma this week.

Carson Wentz, RG3 and a brutal Browns weekend

Was the the most “Browns” type start to a Browns season you could imagine? We’re used to seeing the Browns stumble year after year in opening games, yet the storylines this year are worse than usual.

And naturally, the national media is piling on (who can blame them). Colin Cowherd manages to offer all the simplistic criticisms of the Browns in this short video clip above, calling them the worst-run franchise in the NFL and proclaiming RG3’s career to be over.

The new Browns regime passed on Carson Wentz, so of course Wentz ends up getting the start in the opener against the Browns and plays very well.

The Browns were in the game in the third quarter when Cameron Erving launched a snap over RG3’s head for a safety.

After that, the Browns collapsed, and RG3 struggles the rest of the game until breaking a bone in his shoulder in garbage time on a freak play as he tried to run out of bounds.

As Browns fans we’re used to this misery, but this time I don’t think the sky is falling, though we all knew this team would have struggles this season.
