Cleveland Sports Insiders: Waiters, Shurmur and Tribe rumors
Jim and Steve return to the cyber airways tonight with another edition of CSI: Cleveland Sports Insiders. It returns to the cyberwaves tonight in two separate half-hour increments. The first half-hour will air live from 11:00 to 11:30 p.m. EST with the second half hour airing live from 12 to 12:30 a.m. EST.
The Cavaliers will be playing their fifth game of the season tonight on the West Coast after splitting their first four basketball games. The Cavs most recent game saw a snapshot of what may come, with Dion Waiters leading the team with 28, Kyrie coming in with 24 points and ten boards, and Tyler Zeller scoring 15.
Might Dion Waiters be a tour de force in the making? After four games, a case could be made that he's a top two rookie right now, with Portland's Damian Lillard rolling along. Can this possibly last?
The Cleveland Browns are coming off a tough loss to the Baltimore Ravens in which they seemed to take a step backwards. Five trips inside the 20 led to five field goals, with four of the drives showcasing no pass attempts into the end zone. Brandon Weeden looked every bit a 29-year-old rookie, and while he played badly, the offense seemed to be ill-matched for the Ravens cover-two. The team looked sloppy, played badly, wasted timeouts, and were called for bad penalties. Pat Shurmer seems to be signing his exit papers.
Trent Richardson did play well though...so there's that.
The boys will open the show with the Cleveland Indians, who made their first trade of the season. CSI will dive into what the Indians should do heading into a crucial hot stove league season, talk about some offseason moves, and welcome a surprise guest during the first half-hour.
All this and more tonight when CSI goes live at 11 p.m.
