Hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend. We took the three best questions we received this week and will be answering them below. If you would like to ask a question in a future week, check out our Twitter account, @CLEsportsTalk, on Thursday evenings.
Do you think the Browns will trade up into the first round?— Stump Mitchell’s Beard (@StumpsBeard19) April 4, 2019
I think that is something we won’t know until Draft Night. The only scenario where they do trade up to the 1st round is if a player that GM John Dorsey is high on starts to fall, then he may try to get into the first round. The best area to trade in is the 23 – 32 zone. One team to keep an eye out for trying to trade back is the Los Angeles Rams at pick #31. They have used a lot of draft picks over the past few
what’s ur take on the tribe so far?— Cleveland IndiansFan (@IndiansFan007) April 5, 2019
It is way too early to freak out about the season. The Indians always start slow. They are missing SS Francisco Lindor and 2B Jason Kipnis. While Kipnis is not the All-Star he was a few years ago, he is still a good player and definitely better than 2B Brad Miller. Also, they lost their first series against the Minnesota Twins. Many people were picking the Twins to win the division this year as they are a much improved team from last year. Losing the opening series to them stinks, but since then the Indians are playing much better and have won a few in a row. One series is not a microcosm on the whole season. Let’s let a month play out before we get concerned.
I’ll add this. There’s an old baseball adage that every team is going to win 54 games and lose 54 games. It’s what you do in the third set of 54 games that matter.
Will it be a setback year for both kluber and cookie?— Chief Wahoozer (@wahoozer) April 5, 2019
I don’t think so. L
We hope you enjoyed this week’s mailbag. We look forward to next week to see the amazing questions we are going to get!
