Why Lebron James is the G.O.A.T. Of The NBA

Lebron James has played for three teams in the NBA.  His first team was the Cleveland Cavaliers and he played for them for seven years, after that he went to the Miami Heat and played for them for four years, then went back to Cleveland for four years, and finally started new in LA and currently playing for the Los Angles Lakers.  Now you see these teams have had some really good moments in history, for example the Lakers had a all-star player Kobe Bryant, and Cleveland had a pretty well-known player named Mark Price.  You see Lebron James has made these teams champions and who they are.  Look at the Cavaliers, as soon as Lebron James left they started loosing badly right now they are last in their division and their record is (8-29).  I hate to say it but the Cavaliers are nothing without Lebron James.  If you are still not convinced take a look at his exceptional career.  Lebron James has been to nine NBA finals and won six out of those nine, and he has won three finals MVP awards, and making 14 all-star game appearances.  If you want to have a look at his stats and the article on why he is the greatest of all-time click on the links below.

Unpredictable MLB Star

Ozzie Albies is having an extremely impressive season.  Albies is tied for number one for most home runs in the season so far.  He also has five stolen bases this season and his main strength is power hitting.  He has 31 RBI’s and 37 runs.  This guy is only 21 years old and producing those stats.  That is crazy at that age and those stats.  I am wowed by him.  If he is available in your league you must pick him up or make a trade for him he is so dominate.  He is one of my favorite players on my fantasy team.

Players to look to pick-up on your waiver wire MLB

Pitchers to pick-up:

  1. Cole Hamels he has 52 strikeouts, he only has one win this whole season but if you were to pick him up you would get him for strikeouts.  His ERA is 3.94 and his whip is 1.36.  He might be someone if he is available your league to pick him up.
  2. Another pitcher you might want to consider picking up is Mike Foltynewicz.  He has 43 strikeouts and is 2-2.  His ERA is 3.65 and his whip is 1.35.  Overall if you are to pick him up he would be a really good role player.
  3. My last suggestion for you for pitchers is Tanner Roark.  He has 41 strikeouts and his record is 2-3.  His ERA is 3.65 and his whip is 1.08.  He is usually a good strikeout guy and a does not bomb you with ERA or whip.

 

Hitters to pick-up:

  1. One of my recommendation for hitter to pick-up is Nomar Mazara.  Last year he was a stolen base guy this year he is in the top 10-12 people for most homers this year.  He has a really good average of a .294.
  2. My second recommendation to you is Eddie Rosario He has 7 homers and 4 stolen bases and 25 RBI’s his average is also pretty good .291.  He is definitely someone I would pick-up.
  3. My third and last recommendation for hitters is Corey Dickerson.  He has 5 homers and 3 stolen bases and a average of .323 and 26 RBI’s.  If you are looking to boost your average and have RBI’s then this is the guy for you.

This Year Is Different?

This year is different for baseball.  Because the best players are not shining and the medium players are having a good start to the season.  For example I do not know about your leagues but Gerrit Cole is the number one pitcher in my league.  Nolan Arenado is supposed to start out with crazy stats but he has not yet.  Just keep in mind that things are going to be different this year.
