Illinois High School Pitcher Hits A Bird Why Cleveland must part ways with McCoy The old saw about backup QBs being the most popular guy on a losing team isn't going to help Brandon Weeden, should he take over as a starter in Cleveland. It's especially true if the perception exists that last year's tough, likeable boy-next-door No. 1 quarterback had no substantial help and is now paying the price for it. That's why Colt McCoy can't be part of the Browns' 2012 plans. Sorry. Doesn't matter if he comes cheaply or even willingly. Doesn't matter if he's a good teammate or a capable Plan B in case of injury. Can't happen. Keeping McCoy around muddles the bold move made in drafting Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden in the first round. Johnny Damon to join Indians Tuesday Indians outfielder Johnny Damon, who's been working himself into game shape in extended spring training, is expected to join the team on Tuesday in Chicago, tweets Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. If that's the case, then Damon will arrive in time for the three-game series with the White Sox that begins that same night. The Tribe could certainly use him. Grady Sizemore is out until at least early June after undergoing back surgery during spring training, and Shin-Soo Choo is presently sidelined with a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, left fielder Shelley Duncan badly needs a left-handed platoon partner and is already looking overexposed as a regular. Damon isn't much with the glove these days and should never be allowed to face a lefty, but he can help the Indians. The 38-year-old Damon is coming off a season in which he hit .261/.326/.418 with 16 home runs as the primary DH for the Rays. He needs 277 hits to reach 3,000 for his career.
