Before taking the floor, LeBron James stood in the hallway with his teammates outside Cleveland’s locker room and pounded his chest with both hands.
Even when things broke down, we just covered for one another, James said. “We made them make extra passes. We made them make extra dribbles. We were flying around, and I just happened to be one of the guys on the floor that wanted to fly around as well.”
Game 4 is Monday night before the series returns to Boston.
His first game went so well that Boone walked up to him late Saturday night and said, “Left field tomorrow.”
So Frazier will be in there for the Yankees-Royals’ series finale, and then who knows. He’ll probably be optioned back to Triple-A next week to get regular at-bats, but things change all the time in baseball due to injuries and other things.
Whatever happens, Frazier is happy that he’s had a chance to show the Yankees what he can do again. They saw glimpses of greatness last summer when Frazier made a big splash during his first call-up as a fill-in starter, but a hot streak led to struggles and then a return to Triple-A. He finished his rookie season hitting just .239 with four homers and 17 RBIs in 39 games.
This year I feel like I’ve earned the promotion, said Frazier, who hit .362 in 12 Triple-A games. “Last year there were some injuries to get called up. This year I had the performance in the minor leagues and I thought it was deserving of the call-up when the time came.
