The Cleveland Browns were holding onto the chance that wide receiver Josh Gordon would be able to stay with the franchise in 2014. He was originally suspended for the season due to violation of the substance abuse policy. After trying to appeal the ban, the NFL denied his request. Now, Cleveland is faced with adversity just as they started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Can Cleveland still stick around and be in the mix for the playoffs in 2014, or will it be another rebuilding season on the shores of Lake Erie?

Most teams that have fallen on hard times love to adopt the saying “wait til next year” to give their fans hope. When fantasy baseball star Matt Harvey of the New York Mets went down with a UCL tear this week, the team might have to slightly alter that saying. It looks as though the Mets will not truly be able to contend until 2015 at the earliest, as they franchise looks to build up their young cast of stars.
Baseball is a team game, so some might feel that throwing in the towel for the rest of 2013 and all of 2014 because one player is injured might be a bit too much. However, Harvey quickly has turned into one of the faces of the franchise, and it all started when he was named the starting pitcher for the National League in the 2013 All-Star game. If he undergoes surgery, he will be back at the earliest by this time next season. More than likely, that means the team will shut him down and prepare him for a return at 2015 Spring Training.
While the year 2015 seems like quite a ways away, the Mets could very well utilize this time to help bring along the rest of their talented farm system. They seem to already be ready to mail in the future, trading away Marlon Byrd and John Buck for prospect Dilson Herrera. The second baseman has solid potential, although at just 19, he is still pretty far from the MLB level. Guys like Travis d’Arnaud, Zack Wheeler, and Noah Syndergaard are just a few who should have plenty of playing time under their belts by 2015. They all have huge fantasy baseball potential, and it could be the new core to build around for the Mets going forward.
If Harvey can make a complete return from surgery (he most likely should), the Mets could be ready to spend some money and start contending again in 2015. It would be best for them to bottom out in 2014 and possibly grab another prospect or two through the draft. Fans, especially those in New York, do not want to hear it, but it might just be time to wait until 2015.
