Welcome back to my feature about my hypothetical run as General Manager of my beloved Cleveland Browns. The first installment included me talking about making sure the front office created a clear-cut gameplan for the organization as well as making a couple brief points on some of the roster decisions for the upcoming season. This time around, I’m going to go more in-depth about free agency and the draft. (more…)
Anyone who follows sports knows that there has been a huge whirlwind swirling over Lake Erie and the Cleveland Browns organization. From the outside looking in, owner Jimmy Haslem seems to have proven his ineptitude to run an NFL organization (I’m not going to speculate how inept his other business may or may not be run, but there is that question in my head). Since it seems that any Joe Schmoe halfwit fool can run the organization, I figured why not write about what I would do hypothetically if I was in charge of my beloved Browns. (more…)
But still, don’t use my picks as betting advice. (more…)

If a franchise with unlimited money is what you want, look no further than the Los Angeles Dodgers. Clayton Kershaw already has 2 Cy Young awards on his resume. These and his consistent early career brilliance has earned the Dodgers ace some straight cash to the variety of $215 million. Kershaw will now earn an average of $30 million per year for 7 years. Even with his success and promise for the future, was this too much to pay for player only taking the field every fifth day? What will this mega contract mean for future deals?

On this editon of the esteemed Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show, the Baseball Hall of Fame elects three new members. In an eternal cloud of controversy looming over baseball’s home of immortality, Cooperstown’s doors remains locked to past steroid users. Mike analyzes this year’s ballot and who he feels will receive the honor going forward. How can this mess be fixed? Are deserving canidates getting screwed, solely for a PED suspicion? Will it eventually become easier for the borderline guys? The Baseball Hall of Fame is surely asinine.
