The Redskins will introduce Jay Gruden as their new Head Coach this afternoon. He will get a five-year deal.
Gruden makes for a great fit with the Redskins, who have a star player at each of the skill positions on offense. It was amazing to see what Gruden was able to do with a less-talented Andy Dalton, and will now get to work with a rising start in Robert Griffin. Across the board, the Redskins offense should now be upgraded when preparing for 2014 fantasy drafts. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Javier Baez was in the middle of a nasty collision Friday at second base while trying to turn a double play. It looked bad enough manager Joe Maddon was a bit nervous Baez may have suffered a serious injury.
Baez will be fine, but it was indeed a scary moment for the Cubs. Kole Calhoun took Baez out on a double play, but instead of him sliding into his feet, due to the position that Baez was in, he was drilled in the midsection by Calhoun's elbow. As Maddon accurately put it, he "got smoked." Being Joe Maddon, he of course added in that "I loved it." Initially Maddon feared that Baez was seriously injured as he writhed in pain on the ground, but the former top prospect, who is just 22, will be fine and even singled in singled in a later at bat. He is a risky fantasy proposition, who may not even make the Opening Day squad, but his upside is ridiculous. Analysis: Ben Diamond
