MLB.com gets in on the LeBron James circus for some reason

2 Comments

Just in case you somehow didn’t get enough of the LeBron James media circus yesterday, this morning MLB.com had not one, not two, but three different baseball-related (sort of) articles about James:
* No LeBron in NY, but Yanks wish him well
* Marlins excited LeBron coming to town
* LeBron’s move doesn’t surprise Indians
If, say, Albert Pujols shocks everyone by leaving the Cardinals after next season and signs with another team, do you think NBA.com will have three articles about it? Just saying.
