NFL Draft grades: Davis Webb gets mixed reaction from Giants fans

Because, well, he’s a quarterback Quarterback is the NFL’s most controversial position. After 13 seasons and two Super Bowl titles, there is still a great deal of debate about how good New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning really is.

In our poll asking readers to grade the selection of Webb, 20 percent have given the pick an A. Twenty percent combined have also given the pick a grade of D or F....

Red Sox 5, Cubs 4: Fenway Frustration

The Cubs again had many chances to win, but came up short. Didn’t we see this game on Wednesday? The Cubs’ opponent got out to a big early lead, the Cubs slowly grinded away at that lead to come within one, ultimately coming up short despite many opportunities. That was the story Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, and the Cubs repeated a similar game in a 5-4 loss to the Red Sox in front of a fairly large contingent of Cubs fans at Fenway Park in Boston. Let’s start with the good stuff, the way the Cubs started. That was a home run literally “over the monster” by Kris Bryant, whose...
