It's Beat Up Cleveland day at

Well, when it rains, it pours I guess. And despite the beautiful weather in C-town today, the folks a few hundred miles east are trying to send rain clouds against the jetstream.

Mere hours after I read Craig's article on WFNY about the baseball page cover story featuring the Indians' attendence, I meandered over to the site myself to check out what Miami Heat players would be banished for their thuggery mere flagrant-1 fouls in last night's game.

And what greets me there, right smack on the very front page?  A "future power rankings" from 2015, (accessible via ESPN Insider only) projecting where each of the 32 NFL teams will be in three years. Thanks Trent Dilfer, Mel Kiper, Gary Horton, and Matt Williamson for being such clairvoyants.

Naturally, the Browns are in dead last place. Can't complain about the prediction, but the timing stinks.

And also for the "Sorry Cleveland" sentiment. I'm sure you are. (Not that we don't need the pity sometimes.)
