It’s still far too early to tell which of the two teams would emerge as the winner of the aforementioned blockbuster point guard swap, but reports of the trade first emerged earlier this month amid rumors that Paul and Harden’s relationship as backcourt partners had significantly deteriorated since Houston was eliminated by the Golden State Warriors in...

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Brian Snitker stacks the righties against Royals lefty Danny Duffy In the days leading up to Ender Inciarte’s reactivation from the Injured List, much speculation was bandied about regarding his role upon returning to the Braves. While he has only been back for five games, an early trend seems to be developing - and that trend is a platoon with Austin Riley. Granted, the platoon is not strictly based on handedness, as Riley started on Saturday against righty Anibal Sanchez, but it is interesting to note that, with the Royals sending lefty Danny Duffy to...

How the strength of the Cowboys offensive line will help sort out the depth at other positions

Photo by Leslie Plaza Johnson/Icon Sportswire via A great offensive line is a gift that keeps on giving. On Monday, we took a trip down memory lane and discussed how the offensive line of the Dallas Cowboys has evolved under the control of head coach Jason Garrett. After a youth movement that replaced aging players with young talent, the Cowboys offensive line had a five-year stretch where they finished in the top four in PFF rankings. But that streak ended last season as they were hit with injuries. The team is primed to be better this season thanks to the return of Travis Frederick as...
