The coward Rob Manfred strikes again 
Opinion by Tim Shirer 

Rob Manfred in his time as Major League Baseball Commissioner has solidly cemented his place as one of the worst commissioners in American professional sports history. Now once again he has proved that he is also a coward when he failed to suspend any of the Miami Marlins players who broke COVID-19 protocol and went out on the town on their trip to Atlanta. NO SUSPENSION for these guys who put an entire league at risk because they are typical selfish pro athletes who were more concerned with having a night of fun than doing the right thing.  Click here for the whole story

Opinion by Tim Shirer
The Growing up in Wickliffe in the 1970’s and 80’s baseball was king in our house. Yes, we loved all four major pro sports, but the Indians were the team that mattered most.

It was easy to do, game were always easy to get into because Cleveland Municipal Stadium was only maybe 15% full for most games after Opening Day where it usual drew 70,000+.  Click here for the whole story

The team is on the right path. That last sentence has not been something that could be said too often in the past 22 years.  Click here for the whole story
