LeBron James is ridiculously greedy for more money

LeBron James is the best player in his sport. He makes a ton of money in endorsements. He is making $19M for this season.

He’s an international icon. He’s a millionaire. He’s on top of the world. Yet when he found out about Miguel Cabrera’s big new contract, James got jelly.

Report: Tigers open to trading either Max Scherzer or Rick Porcello

Please come to Oakland!

Actually, the asking price will be too big. But seriously, would the Tigers want to part away with those two pitchers? They have such a solid rotation and have the talent to win it all. Is this the change they need to get over the hump?

The A’s will overcome their past postseason failures tonight in Game 5

The New York Times chronicled the Oakland Athletics’ past postseason failures. It sucked reading it. But I am the ever optimist.

But unlike a lot of A’s fans, I do not hate, despise or whatever you call it with the Giants. They are the other team across the Bay. They aren’t a real rival to the A’s. I appreciate and love the Bay and I want good things for my area.

With that said, the Giants winning another World Series would be very tough on me as an A’s fan. Part of it is because I wish my team could have beat the Tigers. But the real reason has nothing to do with the game, but the aftermath.
