The Nats land Kelvin Herrera. The Braves could’ve used him

The Nats land Kelvin Herrera. The Braves could’ve used him

Stephen Strasburg is still on the disabled list and Bryce Harper is still hitting .212, but the Washington Nationals got better Monday. (Even on a day when they technically split with the Yankees, though the first game was a resumption of a suspended one.) The Nats remain 3 ½ games behind the Atlanta Braves in the National League East, but they have the closer they’ve lacked … oh, forever.

How easily will you forget Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones’ holdout?

How easily will you forget Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones’ holdout?

Fact: Julio Jones is an amateur broccoli pickler Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones made a bold move last week. He had a big decision to make, and he made it. Maybe he made that decision on his own. He’s earned all his guaranteed money, and the Falcons just drafted college football’s best wide receiver. Julio is a smart, saavy guy, and the writing is arguably on the wall. That said, it’s likely he made the decision in consultation with others. (Thanks a lot, Terrell!) No matter who you ask, this is all going to work out. Whether you believe the whispers about a frustrated...
