It’d be dramatic to claim that Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons is underappreciated, because his two Gold Gloves and stellar defensive stats seem to indicate that he’s being rightfully recognized, but how many infielders are capable of tricking two runners into an inning-ending rundown?
National anthem demonstrations became the story at NFL stadiums around the country on Sunday. But at Texans-Patriots in Foxboro, Mass., and at Dolphins-Jets in East Rutherford, N.J., the players who protested were met with jeers and boos from thousands of fans who briefly drowned out the sounds of the anthem itself.…
President Donald Trump said Friday that any “son of a bitch” NFL player who kneeled during the national anthem should be fired.

Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first MLB player to kneel for the national anthem over the weekend. Maxwell, whose father served in the Army, explained that his demonstration had nothing to do with disrespecting the military:
The slingshot-into-the-ringpost spot is a staple of professional wrestling. I associate it mostly with Mr. Perfect, but a ton of people do it.

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune is reporting Sunday night that Dwyane Wade and the Chicago Bulls have agreed to a buyout, a move that will immediately make Wade a free agent. This was an inevitability virtually the moment the Bulls completed the Jimmy Butler trade back in June.
