The 33-year-old superstar announced Sunday via his agency he was leaving Cleveland Dean Lowry Jersey and signing a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers. Gilbert, who has been the majority owner of the Cavaliers since 2005, released a statement thanking James for winning the NBA championship in 2016 and for his time in a Cleveland uniform.
Just how good is Mike Trout? He’s so good, it took three rounds of swapping astounding stats to decide which numbers best cement his growing stature in baseball history.
That’s the longest streak of games, since Trout was called up for good in April 2012, in which he failed to reach base. Two! Willie Mays had three streaks of at least three goose eggs during his first 1,000 games played, Barry Bonds had a streak of four and three threes, Ken Griffey Jr. http://www.officialchiefslockerroom.com/elite-len-dawson-jersey had a four and a three, and even Ted Williams the most precocious on-base machine in history airballed three straight games in 1939, when he was 20. The Angels’ hitters alone have http://www.officialauthenticpackerstore.com/Nike-Dean-Lowry-Jersey.html managed 197 streaks of three games or longer since 2012 (excluding their pitchers), but Trout is slump-proof. Indeed, he has 13 streaks of two games without reaching base, and in the 13 games following them he Authentic Len Dawson Jersey has hit.326/.412/.558. There’s no such thing as a cold Mike Trout; just hot Mike Trout and regular Mike Trout. Sam Miller
James’ decision seems to be largely based on beating the Warriors. Front offices are trying to build their own superteams to combat the four All-Stars in Oakland. The Lakers have emerged as a primary suitor with a better chance of competing given their ability to add James and another max player. The 76ers are also lurking with much better talent than the Cavs can currently offer.
A new team could emerge as a challenger to the Warriors, bringing excitement to a fresh series with Golden State and changing the dynamic of a conference race. Of course, it would help if James had another star next to him…
That’s Trout’s career walks total. OK, setting the all-time mark for walks isn’t going to lead to mass hysteria and SportsCenter specials, but walks are good. Walks are not outs. Walks lead to runs. Trout is on his way to leading the American League in runs for the fifth time and that’s because he gets on base a lot. Anyway, Barry Bonds is the career leader in walks and he had 603 through 1,000 games, so Trout is ahead of his pace.
