Miguel Montero gave Cubs another reason to trade Jake Arrieta (and Montero himself)

Miguel Montero decided to go all Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler on a teammate, and like Wade and Butler, it was the right point made the wrong way. It’s the Chicago Way, I guess.

MLB trade rumors: Tigers’ Justin Verlander may hit market within 2 weeks

MLB trade rumors: Tigers’ Justin Verlander may hit market within 2 weeks

Tigers ace Justin Verlander might become available for trade within the next two weeks, sources told Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports. Verlander may hit the market because he has struggled this season after a stellar 2016 in which he finished second in the AL Cy Young Voting. Last year, Verlander led the American League in strikeouts for the fourth time in his career with 254 Ks and posted a 3.04 ERA over 227 2⁄3 innings. This year, the 34-year-old Verlander has a 4.47 ERA, struck out 94 hitters and walked an AL-high 44 batters, a year after only walking 57, in 94 2⁄3 innings. But, as...

Burleson: Patriots WR Julian Edelman is 4th most valuable receiver in the NFL

The former NFL wide receiver knows his pass catchers and he considers Edelman is to be one of the most valuable in the league. “Valuable” doesn’t always mean “Best” as we’ve seen over the years in “Most Valuable Player” awards. Sometimes “Most Valuable” means the player that received the least amount of help from their supporting cast, like when Falcons QB Matt Ryan defeated Patriots QB Tom Brady in the MVP voting for 2016. Other times “Most Valuable” only looks at the team record, like when Panthers QB Cam Newton defeated Patriots QB Tom Brady in the MVP voting for...

Redick makes sense from an on-court perspective, but too many other factors make it unlikely for him to sign in Philadelphia. Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick has certainly passed Kyle Lowry as the soon-to-be free agent most frequently linked to the Philadelphia 76ers. Back in May, Adrian Wojnarowski mentioned that Redick, a correspondent on Woj’s The Vertical podcast network, could quite possibly land with the Sixers.
