James Rapien

Indians, Cavaliers, and Browns coverage

James Rapien is our beat writer for the Cleveland Indians and covers the Cleveland Cavaliers as well. Rapien grew up in Cincinnati, where he earned a journalism degree from the University of Cincinnati and previously covered the Bengals, Reds and Bearcats. Rapien can’t stand it when NBA players miss half of their free throws or when MLB players can’t bunt. He loves a good country song, but will listen to hip-hop most of the time. Rapien’s hobbies include movies, video games and traveling. He currently lives in Cleveland.
