Leadoff With Lee 4.19.14
-Heeeeeeeere's Johnny! The Browns coaches are officially in Texas and depending on when you are reading this, are working out Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. I wasn't able to confirm at the time of this post if team officials had dinner with him last night or will have lunch with Manziel today after his workout. Don't expect any news to come out of this lunch/dinner meeting as the Browns will wait until Manziel comes to Cleveland next week to really pick his brain.
-The Browns have finally hired their new head physician Dr.James Voos. Dr. Voos is the former team physician of the Kansas City Chiefs, and the final piece of the new partnership between University Hospitals and the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland ended their 40 year partnership with the Cleveland Clinic in January.
-The Indians dropped a tough game against the Blue Jays last night 3-2. Justin Masterson went 6.1 innings giving up 6 hits and getting 9 strikeouts and only 2 earned runs. Masterson left the game tied 2-2 in the 7th inning when he was replaced by Marc Rzepczynski. Rzepczynski gave up the go ahead run after allowing 2 hits. With the Jays up 3-2 in the bottom of the 9th with bases loaded Michael Brantley grounded out to 1st base. Jason Kipnis had the hot bat for the Tribe going 3-4 scoring 1 run. Cleveland had 3 cold bats Yan Gomes 0-4, Carlos Santana 1-4, Michael Bratley 0-5. The Indians left 21 men on base and the Jays left 16. Marc Rzepczynski took the loss for last night. Cleveland will face Toronto again today, with game time at 1:05pm.

-And my athlete video of the week goes to Nick Young aka Swaggy P (with rapper girlfriend Iggy Azalea), who also channeled his inner "Birdie", played by Tupac Shakur in the 1994 basketball film "Above The Rim". Bruh, if you don't laugh at this you have a problem. Hell, he kind of acts like me coming out the club.
