Trade Retrospective: The Cubs acquire Anthony Rizzo from the Padres for Andrew Cashner – Beyond the Box Score
Regardless of the what-ifs, it’s hard to deny that the Padres made a terrible mistake in dealing Rizzo. Sometimes a team can get lucky with a bad trade, but when the process behind it is as bad as the Padres was in this instance, the outcome can be pretty predictable.

The Greatest Game Never Played – Bleacher Report
The made-for-TV court at Caesars Palace could have been empty except for one basketball and two of the game’s most illustrious players ever. They would’ve been free of teammates, facing each other head-on in The King of the Court, to finally answer a question that remained unanswered for so long: Who’s better—Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson?
