One reason, if not the major reason, that LeBron James has taken so long to decide whether to play in Miami or Cleveland next season is the infamous letter Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert penned about James after the superstar left Cleveland in 2010, sources said.
All the more reason Cleveland shouldn't even be an option. Duh. It wasn't just Gilbert who trashed LeBron publicly, it was every Cavaliers fan as well. The whole city went on and on about his betrayal and how he abandoned the city and the fans. Why in the world would they even want him back? It's more than obvious that without an All Star team around him, he's not winning anything and if you look at the Cavs roster, there's certainly no Dream Team sitting there waiting for LeBron to sign.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Hector Sanchez left Thursday's game after taking a foul tip to the neck.
We should get a better idea on Friday if this injury is serious or not, but even a brief absence could set Sanchez back in his roster battle with Andrew Susac. Susac is younger, and a better hitter and he could be useful in NL-only or if the Giants decide to play Buster Posey more at first base. Sanchez will never have much fantasy value regardless of role though he would probably be better for San Francisco's pitchers. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Ross Ohlendorf left Thursday's game with tightness in his right groin.
This isn't good news for Ohlendorf, especially after he's pitched so well this spring. Given his success, it seems as though the only way that he will be left off of the Rangers' Opening Day roster is if he is out for an extended period of time or has a setback. He will likely fill a long reliever role for Texas with the chance to make an occasional spot start. Analysis: David Kerr
