LeBron's Reputation Tarnished

It's amazing. LeBron James' decision on where he will play basketball in the future will have much bearing on how the landscape of the NBA develops the next decade. Yet, many people are rolling their eyes at how he is handling it. It's called taking a positive and making it a negative. James is coming across as a cut below other NBA truly great stars, past and present, because he appears to be reveling in the moment too much. This, coupled with fresh memories about how he essentially quit on his team in the Boston playoff series, has tarnished James' reputation.

Random Thoughts

- I like what I have seen from Danny Worth. It does look like he will form a decent platoon at shortstop for the Tigers, along with Ramon Santiago.

- Interesting stat: From July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010 - roughly the span of a full season - Magglio Ordonez was Major League Baseball's leading hitter with a .331 batting average.

Lebron-narcissist, ESPN-enablers.

On Ramon Santiago, I know Leyland likes him but the guy sure makes his share of errors. Was at the park Tuesday and his two were of the "embarrassing" type. He is smooth and all but......not particularly good if you ask me

Core Contrarian,
I've said for a long time for those who clamored for Santiago to play every day, he is at his best only playing two or three times per week. Get exposed when playing every day. Make Worth doing well this season important.
