So, it's official: the Cleveland Indians are headed to the World Series. That means that when the Cavs get their championship rings next Tuesday, the Indians will be playing Game 1 against the Cubs or Dodgers a short walk away. A year ago, who would have thought Cleveland sports teams that aren't the Browns would be succeeding at this level back-to-back?

And what's especially cool is how much the Cavs as a whole are supporting their baseball brethren? LeBron James is tweeting about Andrew Miller. J.R. Smith literally is geeking out along with the rest of us at a bar many Clevelanders go to all the time. And Richard Jefferson is trolling the city of Toronto on Snapchat. WATTBA. Let's enjoy this while it lasts. If you need a cool shirt, our friends at Lets Go Tribe have you covered.

If you're looking for a podcast to listen to, check out 'Locked on Cavaliers', a Cavs podcast in the 'Locked on Podcast' network. It's hosted by me and you can subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher and AudioBoom. Also follow the show on Twitter @LockedOnCavs and like it on Facebook. Also, drop an e-mail or mailbag question to the show at

If you need a sick Cavs or NBA t-shirt, go support FtS' Daniel Rowell over on TeePublic. You may or may not see the header of this newsletter on a t-shirt in his store.

What to read today: Ethan Sherwood Strauss' fire Draymond Green piece, Lee Jenkins on Russell Westbrook and Jesus Gomez on how the Warriors are making Durant a more complete player.

That's it for today. We'll talk to you again tomorrow.
