Chicago Cubs vs. Washington Nationals preview, Wednesday 6/28, 6:05 CT

The Cubs looked bad Tuesday night. Hopefully, they will look better tonight. So. Any Cubs news today? Of course you know what's been going on, so this is just a preview of the lineups and pitching matchups, with a couple other notes: Even with last night's poor performance by Jake Arrieta, Cubs starting pitchers have a 2.95 ERA (26 ER in 79⅓ innings) over their last 14 games. That's good! Keep it up. The Cubs have two players in the top 11 in OBP in the National League: Kris Bryant is 10th at .393, and Anthony Rizzo is 11th at .389. Rizzo has a .423 OBP over his last 46 games,...

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...
