While the Cleveland Cavaliers had far and away the splashiest off-season of the NBA—signing two perennial all-stars and a host of solid, veteran supporting cast players—perhaps none of it could have been possible without their initial, less heralded move: re-signing Kyrie Irving to a five-year, $90...

What a difference a year can make. Just a year ago, the Indians’ recently completed season would have been considered a great success. After last year’s run to the American League wild card game, though, this season doesn’t quite stack up. Nevertheless the Tribe enjoyed a respectable campaign,...

Cue the music—Diddy’s “Coming Home,” if you please. For a city seeking its first major championship since 1964, Cleveland has embraced the news that Lebron James is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. But if the King is to hoist his third Larry O’Brien (NBA championship) trophy come May,...

As this semester comes to a close and Cleveland begins to warm up (and then cool down and then warm up) the summer break brings an end to most Case Western sporting events. This by no means means that sports fans who are still on campus for the summer, or who live nearby, will need to cling to ESPN for...

The Indians returned this week from a pleasantly surprising season that saw them win their last ten games in the regular season to nab home field advantage for the American League wild card game. Unfortunately, last season’s run ended in that wild card game as they fell to the Tampa Bay Rays. Entering...
