Farewell, Hal

Hal Lebovitz passed away today, at the age of 89.
The "Man in the Know" was the grandfather of Cleveland sportswriting.

It is a loss for all of Cleveland sports fans.

We should be so lucky to have more sports writers like him. I'm sick of the current PD writers ripping on the tribe. I'm still reading about our "choke job" seeing these morons call the team "folding chairs". These are the same guys that ran Belichick out of town. We had a great run with the team we had.
Just wait till next year -timmy lupus

Belichick wasn't run out of town, he went to New England when Modell moved the team. Not that they didn't lay into him, just thought it was worth mentioning. Plus, some of it was deserved for the way the team handled the Kosar situation. That being said, I still don't like the PD staff.

In a related note, the Sports Guy had a Terry Pluto book as his Sports Book Recommendation of the Week. Thought that was pretty cool. Hammer him with emails about not writing anything about Pluto.

Sorry about that, here is the link for the Simmons article.

If Ramirez does request to be traded, Genske says "his preference would be Anaheim. He also still loves Cleveland, and would go back there." Another possibility would be Arizona, if Boston would take some of the contracts the Diamondbacks are trying to move, including Troy Glaus and Luis Gonzalez. Texas was in play at the deadline.
