SHOW NOTES

* 116.

:41: White Sox Do The Impossible: Become Even More Unlikable.

* Ostrowski: Power Struggle Within The Sox Isn't Evident.

24:31: Cubs vs. the Calendar.

* Rosenbloom: Russell And Baez: A Glove Story.

* Mooney: How Soon Before Cubs Make Baez An Everyday Player?

"You're seeing a lot of progress," Maddon said. "Who knows if by playing sporadically this is becoming more part of who he is? As opposed to playing every day, maybe getting caught in the trap of not hitting well, whatever, and all of a sudden he takes it on defense. It's natural progression. He's an everyday player, there's no question, in maybe a couple years."

The Geek Department and scouting reports will ultimately influence where Baez plays, because Maddon wants him wherever the ball will most likely be hit most often. When Jon Lester pitches, that can mean Baez starting at third base and Kris Bryant moving to the outfield.

Fagerstrom: Willson Contreras Has Developed Into An Everyday Catcher.

42:39: Bears Lower Bar.

* Bobby Hoying.

52:46: Blackhawks Miss Out On Free Agent Target Jimmy Vesey.

54:42: Rio 2016: Beachwood Roundup.

* Matthew Centrowitz First U.S. Athlete To Win Olympic 1500m Since Last Cubs World Championship.

* Plus: Hope Solo Grinds Coach Coffman's Gears.

* And: Ryan Lochte Ruins It For Everyone.

College Admission Scandal Grew Out Of A System Already Rigged With 'Side Doors'

Those ensnared in the current criminal case - which alleges that they paid for their children to get spots on the sports teams of big-name schools - couldn't have succeeded if the college admissions process wasn't already biased toward wealthier families.
