It’s probably the fault of the other teams with affiliates in the FSL for not thinking of this first

Judge has done his part for the Yankees in the same regard, as his on-base and slugging percentages both lead the AL, and New York finds itself a half game up on the Red Sox. Judge might even be having the top season in the AL, given Mike Trout’s inherent head start on everyone else in the game has been interrupted by his extended stint on the disabled list.

It would be fascinating and worthy of our attention if these two were on the dirt worst teams in MLB and putting up these kinds of numbers. But having them on teams that look like they should be competitive throughout the year, on classic franchises that seem to just be adding to their history of successful, homegrown stars? That adds another few layers, even if fans of Yankees and Dodgers rivals aren’t necessarily going to appreciate them the same way.

Fair enough. It’s probably the fault of the other teams with affiliates in the FSL for not thinking of this first, really.

With the promotion, you’ll get more articles like the one from the AP. There will be some positives. Glimmers will be shown. Seeds of hope will be planted. Mistakes will be made, but mistakes will not make the headlines.

And there might be some 2-for-13 stretches with strikeouts mixed in, but that’s just a technical quibble.

Kyrie Irving’s trade request influenced by Justin Bieber’s pastor, report says

Once again, there is a plot twist in the Kyrie Irving-Cavaliers saga.

Irving decided to ask the Cavaliers for a trade after talking to his pastor, Carl Lentz of Hillsong Church, according to TMZ Sports.

Irving went to Lentz recently and talked to him about his desire not always be overshadowed by LeBron James. While Lentz didn’t tell Irving to leave the team, according to the report, he said Irving needed to do what was in his best interests.

Pop star Justin Bieber reportedly consulted with Lentz before pulling out of a recent tour, with rumors swirling that Lentz was influential in helping Bieber realize he wanted to focus on his Christian life. Bieber recently shot down those reports, saying he was exhausted after touring for two years.

TMZ also posted a video showing Irving, Bieber and Lentz hanging out at an arcade last week.

I could’ve easily gone crazy, Mason Jr. said.

Death and disappointment are no stranger to him. His grandmother, Mason Sr.’s mother, died just two weeks ago. Before his father passed away, he’d already lost a brother on his mom’s side of the family. Injuries derailed a once promising basketball career and a chance to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Mason Jr. is 6-7 just like Sr. However, he’s much leaner at 215 pounds, whereas Mason Sr. was listed at 250 pounds during his playing days, one of the most menacing physical forces in 1990s basketball. Mason Jr. averaged 14 points per game as a junior for the Red Storm but only played 19 games as a redshirt senior due to injury.
