Making his Browns debut, Johnny Manziel completed 7-of-11 passes for 63 yards while rushing six times for 27 yards against the Lions on Saturday.
Brian Hoyer started the game, but Manziel relieved him midway through the second quarter and looked pretty good out there for a first-timer. Coah Mike Pettine is maintaining the illusion that Manziel still has a shot to start in Week 1 by announcing him as the starter for the second preseason game, but he should defer back to Hoyer to open the season. It's the right thing to do. Throwing Manziel to the wolves with such a weak supporting cast is just setting him up to fail.You simply can;t do that if you really want to make him the face of your franchise.

Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
