This You Gotta See: Cubs-Cards, Sox-Tribe and Bears (hopefully) running all day on Skins

The only thing worse than the Redskins’ 30th-ranked rushing offense? Their 31st-ranked rushing defense. Where we come from, that sounds like a heck of an easy game plan for X’s-and-O’s wizard Matt Nagy. It goes something like this: Hut, hike, handoff. Run the ball, man! [Cue another 45 passing attempts by Mitch Trubisky.]

White Sox’ Tim Anderson on batting title: ‘I ain’t afraid to say it — damn right I want to win it’

Twins’ Ryne Harper (yep, he’s named for him) enjoying life as a first-time big-leaguer at 30

A boy was born and given the name Ryne. Against all odds, that boy made it all the way to the Show. What’s left? A ring would be amazing. Another few seasons in the majors would be the ultimate. And a moment — just a handshake and a few words — with the Cubs great Ryne Sandberg? That would be mighty fine, too.
