Danny Salazar is ready to show he has arrived and is here to stay for the Tribe. What mechanics has he worked on with his pitching? Can he take the final spot in the rotation? Its all in here!
This year could finally be a consistently good one for Danny Salazar. He might finally have control of his electric fastball along with incorporating off-speed pitches within his repertoire. Salazar started last season as the fourth man in the rotation after a successful call-up and starting in the Wildcard game the previous season. However, he […]

My latest profile on the Indians newly acquired righty, Gavin Floyd. Is he due for a bounce back year? Its all in here! #GavinFloyd   #ClevelandIndians  
It has been an interesting road for newly acquired veteran Gavin Floyd.  The righty was coming off of Tommy John surgery of his right elbow last year with the Atlanta Braves when another setback happened. During his ninth start against the Washington Nationals in the seventh inning, he broke the olecranon bone in same elbow […]

My latest article on Johnny Manziel and his decision to check into rehab. Will this finally be the wake up call he needs to be a better player? Should this have been done before he was drafted? It's all in here! #JohnnyFootball   #ClevelandBrowns  
What a disastrous start to the offseason by the Cleveland Browns and it only seems to be getting worse by the day. First Josh Gordon fails another test, this time not pertaining to drugs but to alcohol and gets suspended for the year. Next Ray Farmer could be suspended along with the team losing a […]

My latest Tribe profile on Carlos Carrasco. Carlos Carrasco was almost unstoppable down the stretch for the Indians last season. Can he continue where he left off? Its all in here! #CarlosCarrasco   #ClevelandIndians  
Out of all of the pitchers on the Cleveland Indians’ staff, Carlos Carrasco might have the most talent of all of them. He was the top ranked pitching prospect for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008 and was an untouchable until the Indians traded Cliff Lee and Ben Francisco for him in 2009. CC started out […]

My profile on up and coming righty, Trevor Bauer. With a promising end of last season, Bauer looks as if he could be ready to take the next step. Is he more open to change with his pitching mechanics?  What has he done in Spring Training to improve his game? Its all in here! #TrevorBauer   #ClevelandIndians  
Trevor Bauer may be the most intriguing member of the Cleveland Indians. From only pitching out of the stretch to his pregame long toss routine, he’s made himself memorable–for better and worse. One of the biggest faults that most fans noticed was how Bauer would have atrocious first innings of games and then settle down and […]

My first of 39 profiles on Tribe player's leading up to Opening Day. Corey Kluber won the Cy Young for the American League last year. Does he have enough to repeat? What can he do to improve his game? Its all in here! #CoreyKluber   #ClevelandIndians  
The Cleveland Indians have finally found their true ace of the rotation since Cliff Lee back in 2009. Most fans believed that Corey Kluber would be a good pitcher but not to the point of winning a Cy Young, in only his third year in the MLB. He was acquired in a trade that sent […]

My latest article on the Cleveland Cavaliers possibly turning it around after the big wins in Los Angeles. Are they finally ready to roll? Its all in here! #ClevelandCavaliers  
The last two weeks have been interesting for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Lebron James takes a two-week vacation in Miami to rehab his body, Kevin Love is playing good offensively but  is still a defensive liability. Dion Waiters gets traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, while the Cavaliers gain J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the […]

Introduction

My name is Jamyson Frierson. I am currently attending the University of Akron, pursuing my bachelor's degree in journalism. I have always loved to talk and write about sports, especially as it pertains to my team. ESPN, Fox Sports, and my internship at STO ( Sports Time Ohio), along with my English and news media teachers over the years, has helped me become a better writer as it pertains to style and grammar. I am an aspiring sports journalist. I hope you all enjoy my articles.
