Friday 5, Tribe, Other Junk

The Tribe swept Kansas City to pull with in 2 games of the .500 mark, and now will start a 4 game tilt with the Yankees. I am glad to see CC pitching better, and Cliff Lee continues to be out of his effing mind (4-0 0.25 ERA). I think once we start hitting with more consistency we'll see the Tribe team we all expected. Hopefully the Bullpen will come around also, because everyone has looked shaky from Betancourt on down.

The Cavs got whupped on by the Wizards last night, but maintain a 2-1 lead in the series. I am a big fan of NBA basketball when both teams truly dislike each other and their is something on the line. Regular season NBA basketball is kind of boring to me, but the playoffs are pretty enjoyable. The ongoing feud between the Wiz and the Cavs is fun to follow.

This is draft day weekend, and I can honestly say I probably won't pay much attention. I am sure the largest reason is because the Browns don't have a pick in the 1st 3 rounds, but I am cool with that. I have read up on what people believe Phil Savage's mindset is going into this draft, and I am down with it. He basically focused on the D-Line, and felt that he couldn't drastically improve our defensive front with any of the potential picks we would have in rounds 1-3, so he took that money and moved it towards signing Shaun Rogers and Corey Williams who are 2 established 3-4 defensive linemen. Either way I think we have become better defensively during the offseason, so no its time to sit and wait for trainning camp, and THE 5 NATIONALLY TELEVISED games the Browns have next year...Good times.

Now without further Adieu I give you my Friday 5.
