Quarterback Blake Bortles admitted as much during an appearance on NFL Network when he said the Jaguars aren’t going to surprise anyone this season and will definitely get the best from their opponents every week as a result.

Ronald Guzman (L), 2 percent, Texas Rangers at Baltimore Orioles (RHP Alex Cobb): It’s time we give Rougned Odor a break, He’s been a frequent visitor to this space, deservedly so. While Odor is still in play, so is his teammate Guzman, who’s been raking in July after missing five games with a concussion. So far this month, Guzman has put up a 1.160 OPS. Cobb continues the indignity of being one of the worst starting pitchers in all of MLB, with no tangible signs of turning things around.

Brad Miller (L), 3 percent, Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates (RHP Nick Kingham): While the trade winds blow in Milwaukee, Miller continues to play against righties. He’s in a rut but historically hits well with the platoon edge.

Johnson said his conversation with James, which began at 9:01 p.m. PT, when free agency began, was mostly two guys talking about basketball.

We had a great time of going back and forth, here we are two guys, similar, Johnson said. Both from the Midwest. Both grew up poor. Both love to compete. Both love to win, and I think both excel at the highest level. We connected right when I walked in the door. Just two guys that talk free to each other, Jacoby Brissett Youth Jersey and talk basketball, and that’s what I love about LeBron.

Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said he received a text from James’ agent, Rich Paul, around 4:30 p.m. the next day.

The text just said ‘Congrats,’ and it had balloons, Pelinka said. It was one of those moments in life you’ll never ever forget. Everything went in Henrik Zetterberg Authentic Jersey slow motion.

James followed up with a phone call a few minutes later, Pelinka said.
