She says she hopes he gets “critically injured” in the NFL.

She kinda looks like she’d be a little crazy

Not sure I’d feel safe sleeping next to her... even with one eye open.

Would be funny if Murray tweeted about her being fired

She’s basically a blogger, not a real journalist. Nothing to see here.

Sb nation writers are basically indentured servants.

re: SB Nation fires A’s writer over Kyler Murray tweet
Why is she mad? Did anyone REALLY think a Heisman trophy winning QB wasn't going to put his name in the draft?

I made a comment about this on another site after that emo-maniac, Scott Boras, tried to say that there was no way Murray would leave for the NFL, because he had already signed a contract with the A's. I said what a stupid comment that was, because having a contract in one sport does not prohibit you from playing another sport, unless specified otherwise in his baseball contract. Which it was not. Now, they might end up telling him that they don't want him playing two sports, but that still wouldn't keep him from playing in the NFL. He'd just have to forfeit his baseball contract, and the A's would likely get some type of compensation.

This doesn't mean he WON'T play baseball. But he should keep his options open, because hitting a baseball at the professional level is the hardest thing to do in sports. He has a high chance to fail there. As QB, he is a rare breed who has great running ability, but can actually pass. If he is used the way the Seahawks have used Russel Wilson, his size won't be an issue.

Even as a top 10 pick, his odds of making the MLB are maybe 50/50. It would be ridiculous to put all his eggs in that basket.

What’s the guaranteed money difference?

Agreed.

Not that it's going to be easy to make it in the NFL, but I think his chances of being a bust are higher in baseball. He reminds me of Jared Mitchell, from a baseball standpoint. Uber athleticism with tools that, IF he develops them all, he could be special.

I think he's more advanced as a QB.

He'd definitely get more upfront money in the NFL. In baseball, all contracts are fully guaranteed, however.

But, he'd have to make it though the minors and show something at the MLB level before he'd get a chance at beating out the type of money he'd get upfront from the NFL. It's a big risk. I'm sure he'd like to play both sports, but I'm not sure with the money that's being thrown around in both sports, these days, that any team wants to allow that anymore.

But, like I said before, the A's can tell him he can't play both sports, but they can't stop him from choosing football over them.
