If only the Cubs agreed to an arbitration deal, they’d likely get a big bang for their buck at the upcoming July 30 trade deadline. Regardless, it’s all hindsight, and now Chicago has played into a selling position for the upcoming weeks.
There's a reason the Red Sox handled Sale the ball to record the final three outs of the 2018 World Series, even though he wasn't 100 percent. As the best pitcher on the best team in baseball, they felt he had earned the right to close things out, and when he dropped Manny Machado to one knee for the clinching strike three, it was mission accomplished.

Sigler (3-4): The only way the Saints lose to Tampa is if they turn the ball over, which Drew Brees did often in the playoffs. Can Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston protect it better? I'm not so sure. Hudak (5-2): If these predictions are in any way related, New Orleans will go on somewhat of a run and take the confidence from Seattle back to the dome. Saints outplayed Tampa Bay when somewhat healthy; they'll knock the reigning champions down a peg with a win. Kistner (5-2): Halloween? In New Orleans? Against Tomba Bay? Give me Winston.

Sigler (12-5): Unlike the Panthers, Atlanta will just be hoping to get this season over as quickly as possible. Their roster stinks. They've got few strengths to lean on between an aging quarterback and a thin defense, and the Saints should run all over them to close out the year. Hudak (12-5): I frankly forgot about Week 18, and the early bye week will start to show the effects of fatigue by the end of the season. I fear Atlanta may sneak this one out, as they tend to do once a year. Kistner (12-5): Falcons again and at the perfect time. No resting starters this year. Saints beat the Falcons and punch their ticket to the playoffs. New Orleans finishes the regular season 12-5. The verdict: Saints win (12-5)
Regardless of who is under center, as long as Belichick is in charge the expectations for this team will always be high. Despite drafting Jones in the 2021 NFL draft, it appears Newton will at least begin the season as the starting quarterback. After dealing with shoulder issues and looing like he was throwing a tomahawk instead of a football last season, Newton could have a bounce back season. His knowledge of the playbook should have expanded and his personal expectations under Belichick should be clear by now. Regardless, the spending spree in free agency should only reinforce that New England is preparing to return to its winning ways, or as those in Boston like to call it the "Patriot way." Every game will be a test for the Patriots this season, especially if they do make a quarterback change at some point in the season. The matchup against the Saints holds similar implications for both sides. As for their projected win total: BetMGM has set the over/under at 9.5, just ahead of the Saints themselves at 9 flat. But it's going to competitive in the AFC East, where the Bills (11) have higher expectations while the Dolphins (9.5) are tied with New England, and the Jets (6) are hoping to make some noise with a new coach and quarterback.NFL Pittsburgh Steelers Team Face Coverings

An obvious one to start. Dillon, a second-round pick from a year ago, will almost certainly assume the role of the complementary running back behind Pro Bowler Aaron Jones during training camp. It is an important role in the Packers offense. Gone is Jamaal Williams, who handled around 150 touches each of the last two seasons as the No. 2 back. Dillon might not have as diverse a skill set as Williams, but he's a bruising runner and the Packers think he has real potential in the passing game. With a full season, Dillon is probably a lock for around 400 snaps and 150 touches. And any injury to Jones would make him an immediate starter, and possibly a workhorse at the position. Dillon needs a strong summer to build momentum going into Year 2.NHL Team Logo Face Coverings Shop

One reason the Steelers made no secret about their desire to restructure Ben Roethlisberger's contract is they needed to get under the cap. There was no room for any big additions. Outside linebacker Bud Dupree, cornerback Mike Hilton, offensive linemen Matt Feiler and Alejandro Villanueva, running back James Conner and safety Sean Davis were among the players to leave. Center Maurkice Pouncey, a potential Hall of Famer, retired. The Steelers then lost six-time Pro Bowl guard David DeCastro to what appears to be a retirement due to ankle issues. Pittsburgh cut DeCastro in June, a big setback to an offensive line that was already the weakness of the team. Guard Trai Turner was signed to replace DeCastro at $3 million for one year, the biggest deal the Steelers handed out. The Steelers drafted running back Najee Harris in the first round, and while Harris is a fine talent, it was questionable to draft a running back in the first round when the offensive line is a mess. The big win of the offseason was JuJu Smith-Schuster coming back on a cheap one-year, $8 million deal. Other than that, it wasn't good.

Working our way through the defense, we move off the line and into the linebackers. Most teams tend to deploy two full-time starting off-ball these days, even in 4-3 alignments.

Either way, Smith-Schuster should be an affordable option for a team that might want to invest money elsewhere to help create a consistent winner. JuJu is unlikely to put up huge numbers in Pittsburgh — he hasn’t done so since Antonio Brown was opposite him.

There are many other elements of the game that teams typically either can't control or can't directly control. Two of them should improve for the Niners in 2021. The first is allowing defensive touchdowns. With Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard taking plenty of reps, the 49ers turned the ball over 31 times, which was the second-highest total in football. While that would be bad enough, they then allowed teams to score four defensive touchdowns, including two in one game against Washington. Offenses can protect the football, but there's no evidence of an offense being particularly good at stopping or allowing long returns. The Niners should turn the ball over less frequently next season, and with that, they should allow fewer touchdowns on offense.
