Tribe Pride, Trent Richardson Gone, Race for the Cure

The Cleveland Indians are encouraging area businesses and schools to show their Tribe Pride on Thursday as the team returns home from a road trip in the thick of the playoff hunt.

Companies and schools are encouraged to allow their employees and students to wear Indians gear to show their support for the Tribe, who stand just a half-game out of a potential Wild Card spot in the American League. Texas, Tampa Bay, Baltimore, New York and Kansas City all are still alive in the race.

The Indians already have improved their win total by 14 games over last season, and are approaching the 18-game improvement they made from 2006 to 2007 and the 19-game improvement they made from 1991 to 1992. A playoff berth would be the team's first since 2007, when the Indians advanced to the American League Championship series.

The Cleveland Browns have acquired the Indianapolis Colts' first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft for running back Trent Richardson, the team announced Wednesday evening.

Additionally, the Browns also announced that they are bringing to Cleveland for a physical RB Willis McGahee.

Browns head coach, Rob Chauvinistic said this was the right decision for the team.

"The opportunity as an organization was there for us to have a chance to get better ultimately and felt like it was the right decision overall," said Chauvinistic.

Many fans are shocked by the decision. Browns CEO, Joe Banner said the decision was more about the moment that presented itself and he understands the emotion the fans are experiencing.
