Nunnally Fired, Bruce Fields Named Hitting Coach

"As first reported on the Cleveland Indians’ official Twitter feed, major league hitting coach Jon Nunnally was fired before Sunday’s game and Bruce Fields was named as his replacement." UPDATE: Here's the official press release (Ryan).

Castillo A Candidate For Coordinator?

"Possible new name in #browns OC search -- Eagles OL coach Juan Castillo. Source said he's "in the mix." #nfl"- @TonyGrossi --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nice outside-the-box thinking on this one, IMO. If a top name isn't coming because playcalling isn't on the table, why not poach a top OL coach for the position? Not saying that he's definitely the best choice, but an interesting one to me.

How Did James Davis Get Injured?

" Two witnesses to the incident from within the Browns organization said Davis injured his shoulder in a post-practice drill in which he was not wearing pads and the linebacker that plowed into him was. Three other NFL sources corroborated the witnesses' account." --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wow. More questions arise about Mangini if this is true...

Kurz Signs Non-Guaranteed Deal With Cavs

Finnan has the story that the Cavs have signed Rob Kurz to a non-guaranteed contract to camp. The spot was offered to Joe Smith, who signed the same deal with Atlanta. Smith felt, rightfully, that after signing Powe, there wouldn't be a lot of playing time in Cleveland. Kurz is a 6-9 forward who shoots the three-ball at around 40%. I'm okay with him as the 15th guy, although I would have liked a true point for that role rather than a fifth power forward. Windhorst adds on his Twitter feed that C Darryl Watkins also will be coming to camp with the Cavs, with a slight chance at beating Kurz out for that final roster spot.

Shaq: Revisited?

Its amazing, the life of a rumor. At 8:30 this morning, it sounded like it had already happened. At 10:00, it was close to happening. Now after 11:00, the teams haven't talked in days. This, of course, means by 2:00, Danny Ferry will have no knowledge of any player even named Shaquille and will make an off-color remark about the name itself.

Czech Mate

The Indians signed 17 year-old Czech catcher Martin Cervenka, making him the first European player to sign with the organization. He will remain, under terms of the contract, with the Kotlarka organization next year. This is great. I'm just starting to get familiar with Dominican teams, and now I have to learn the Czech leagues?

Pontbriand Added To Pro Bowl Roster

Three Pro Bowlers from a 4-12 team? I guess I'm not complaining.

RealGM: Cavs Waive Jawad Williams

No real surprise here as Williams contract would have become fully guaranteed shortly. I'd assume that the Cavs will sign someone to a 10-day contract if needed in the short-term. That is, unless a trade happens.

PFT- Savage Fired

I'm not overly surprised, but I'll admit, I'm a Savage fan. He improved the talent on the team during his time here and I hoped for a better ending. Best of luck to Phil.

Dupree Waived, Williams Claims Final Roster Spot

It looks like the final roster is set. Jawad Williams wins the battle for the final roster spot as the Cavs opt to waive Ronald Dupree. Nice to see a local kid make the roster. The contract is still non-guaranteed, so he's vulnerable to be moved at any point, but he wins the spot for now.

Hamilton Waived

No surprise here. The Cavs announced that they waived G Vernon Hamilton. With as deep as the backcourt is, he really had no chance to make the team.

Allred, Dickerson Released

The first two cuts of camp are in. C Lance Allred and G Michael Dickerson have been released.

Thomas Waived To Make Room For West

As a shock to nobody, Bob Finnan reports today that to make room for Delonte West on the roster, Billy Thomas was waived. Thomas had a salary of $826,269, but the contract was not guaranteed.

Browns Trade for CB Travis Daniels

An undisclosed draft pick goes to the Dolphins in return for the 6-1, 4th year CB/S.

Browns To Debut Brown Pants As Part of Uniform Tonight

For the first time in Browns history, the uniform pants tonight won't be white or orange, but rather Brown. The Browns applied for this in 2006, but haven't used them since. According to the article, they will be plain brown with no markings, matching the brown uniform socks as well. Fans will get their say on the new look on the Browns main website in a poll starting tonight. I was talking with a friend about this who threw an absolute fit about it. Me, I'm looking forward to something a little different, at least.

Indians Acquire Anthony Reyes From Cardinals

Luis Perdomo for Anthony Reyes according to the PD Blog.

Adam Miller Placed on DL

I got my hopes up when I saw he was scratched from his start that maybe he would be taking Julio's place. Then I saw this posting on the Bisons website. Hopefully we'll find something else out soon.
