I've been doing the 3 Sports Podcast for WKYC on a weekly basis with Ben Axelrod for a while now. I haven't posted every episode here on the feed, but I wanted to make sure you guys get a sample of what it's all about so you might consider subscribing over there

This week we discussed the following:

  • Cleveland Cavaliers win season opener against Boston
  • Defining Kyrie Irving and whether he'll get booed going forward
  • The Cleveland Browns and the thought of blowing it up again
  • DeShone Kizer named starter once more
  • The problems with Hue Jackson
  • The problems with the front office
  • Jimmy Haslam as the wild card
  • Cleveland Indians win streak and getting knocked out early

With an elimination game upon us, WFNY's Jim Pete and Gage Will hop back into the EHC podcast at WFNY studios to talk a little bit about what went wrong in Games 3 and 4, and what may happen in Game 5.

The line-up:

  • Critiquing Terry Francona: is it allowed, and is it fair?
  • Gio Urshela...one game of bad defense makes it okay for whatever the Indians decide to do with him in the series. You had one job.
  • Should EE play in Game 5?
  • Will it be Yandy at third, JRam at 2B and Kipnis in Center, or will it be JRam at third, Kipnis in Center and Greg Allen/AJax in center?
  • Worried about Kluber?
  • The leash will be short for CC Sabathia, and what comes next is pretty scary.
  • How good are the Yankees, and how pissed off does that make you?

Jeff Nomina is back with his quick post-game reactions and what a game he had to react to! 

The Cleveland Indians completed an impossible comeback to beat the New York Yankees 9-8 in 13 innings. The Tribe is now up 2-0 in the ALDS and look like the team to beat in the MLB playoffs.

Jeff Nomina had a quick reaction to the Tribe's win on our YouTube Channel.
 
The Indians beat the Yankees 4-0 to take a 1-0 lead in the American League Divisional Series. Trevor Bauer pitched a gem and got help from Jason Kipnis in the field and Jay Bruce with the bat.

Jeff Nomina posts things on YouTube. In case you're not subscribed or in case you'd like to just hear Jeff rather than watch him and his guests talk about sports, we're bringing it to the podcast feed. Jeff and Mike Hattery are discussing the Indians and their matchup with the New York Yankees.

Terry Francona shocked the outside world when he selected Trevor Bauer to start Game 1 of the ALDS against the New York Yankees. Did he shock his own team? Did he shock Corey Kluber?

It's obviously fair to question any manager, including Terry Francona, but ultimately one decision prior to the series beginning won't determine the outcome.

Guggy is the nickname of one of my best friends and maybe my best sports friend. Our conversations over the years have been catalysts for many of the posts I've written and topics I've discussed on the podcast. I finally dragged him onto the podcast to represent his own opinion rather than just allowing me to use it as a starting point for my own theses on the pages of WFNY and on the podcast.

  • The Cleveland Browns are the same as they've been
  • Trying to find development in young players
  • Jabrill Peppers and his potential to make opposing coaches think
  • Myles Garrett and what level of impact he could bring against the Jets
  • DeShone Kizer having potential to be a standout
  • Identifying go-to players

Craig and Andrew caught up with a new recording technology. We had a rough start, but I think we figured it out in the end. Give us your patience, please. We had a nice long conversation about the Browns and their early-season rebuilding struggles. We also discussed the Cavaliers and how you can figure they might actually be better with more depth and without Kyrie Irving.

The Cleveland Browns lost a game that they were favored to win on the road. It made a lot of Browns fans upset. In order to get upset, you have to set some expectations for quality, and I'm unsure why you might have had those. There's a lot to be annoyed about, however.

Kyrie Irving made the decision to go on ESPN's First Take with Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman, but after listening to him I'm not sure why. Kyrie sounded like he had something to say before he got in the studio, but seemed to lose all coherence in front of the mic under the big lights. We go through it all.
