They are a Canadian team in the American League. They are in the hardest division in all of sports. With the emergence of the Rays, they scrape and claw and will end up 4th every year (NYY, TB, BOS, TOR then BAL)
The NL East consists of Atlanta, Philadelphia, NY Mets, Florida and Washington.
Of the above mentioned teams it would make the most sense to swap over the Mets or Marlins.
Is there any way to initiate a petition?
The league is in dire need of a shake up and this can be the start!
GO JAYS GO!
Its so unfortunate. They built a dream team to surround LeBron to sway him to resign and remain in Cleveland for the rest of his life and they still cannot win the big games. But, this time it isn't because of the players surrounding LeBron. It is because of, LeBron!
He is an amazing player. Quite possibly the 3rd best all around player to ever play the game when its all said and done, and by far the most athletic ever. But, he clearly will need 2-3 more years and A LOT more maturity to be a great winner. It is more than understandable however as Jordan didn't win a championship for about 6 or so years into his career and Kobe about the same.
LeBron James takes A LOT of iladvised shots! A LOT! He makes half court standing jumpshots and under-handed halfcourt heaves on 60 minutes, but these shots should not be attempted during games. If the 3pt line is there you stand near it and shoot for the best percentage shot. LeBron James has definately improved and added the longball to his game but he is far from clutch. Notice I didn't even touch on the free-throw shooting yet...
Carmelo has one year of college under his belt but there is no question that he is the better shooter and more clutch. Great winners are clutch and LeBron is not.
Bottom line is last night LeBron was out there playing around despite how serious his face my have been at times. Its as if he's worried about friendships or something. Real basketball fans will feel me on this. He gave Carmelo so much space and pathetically contested his game-winning jumper by putting his finger-tips in his eyes long after the ball had been released. LeBron is a great defender chasing the man breaking away and getting weak-side blocks and chase-down pins off the backboard but he is a mediocre face up defender.
Until LeBron James matures more and takes the entire 48 minutes of an NBA basketball game seriously, they will never beat an elite (healthy) NBA franchise deep in the playoffs for an NBA Championship without the referee's assistance.
