Mike Hargrove is Tired of the BeeJays

MikeHargroveAs their manager hunt continues, one of the names who would like to be on the list is former Tribe skipper Mike Hargrove. When he was at the helm, from 1991-1999 Hargrove took the Indians to 5 postseasons and 2 World Series (losing to the Braves in ’95 and the Marlins in ’97.)

Since being fired resigning from the Seattle Mariners midway through 2007 Hargrove has been out of the majors; he has though been managing the Liberal (KS) BeeJays a semi-pro team he played on while in college.

Wanting to be on the list doesn’t just make it so, according the Cleveland Plain Dealer he hasn’t been interviewed and isn’t likely to do so. The likely candidates right now include recently fired Nationals manager Manny Acta, Bobby Valentine and Travis Fryman among others.

This marks the first time in history that a man is looking to dump liberal BeeJays for the opportunity to get involved in a hot mess. I mean, if they’re free-flowing why ever leave?

Bernie Kosar is BACK in the NFL

kosarWhen we last looked in on Bernie Kosar he was trying to defend his house from amorous teenage boys interested in his daughters, battling bankruptcy and divorce and understandably down in the dumps; today he’s BACK as a consultant to Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner. While he doesn’t have any specific duties as yet, the agreement came after Kosar spent several days working in the inner “sanctum” with head coach Eric Mangini.

Kosar previously spent a season as president of the Cleveland Gladiators, an arena league team that lasted a mere one season. He also listed nearly $1.8 million in debt that he owed the Cleveland Browns in his June bankruptcy filings.

“I’ve got a little more time now to do it,” Kosar said of accepting Lerner’s invitation. “I’m getting my personal life in order. I still miss football and the Arena thing whetted my appetite.”

Kosar joins former Browns great Jim Brown as special advisor to the owner. Maybe Lerner should see if Kosar can suit up for the rest of the season, he may be 45-years-old and not have played since 1996 but he’s still probably better than Brady Quinn OR Derek Anderson.

Did Anyone Get the Number of the Train That Hit Him

Sunday’s Panthers/Buccaneers game wasn’t must-watch TV for most NFL fans, after all, who wants to watch misery? If you didn’t see the game though you probably have no idea about the pummeling that Panther Dante Wesley gave to Clifton Smith during a punt return. Smith gets knocked unconscious, Wesley sparks a mini-brawl on the field and then is ultimately ejected from the game.

Football!
