He got the Bears' first-round pick right Thursday night, but he only filled a hole of his own making. Plus: The Cubs Are Cohering; The White Sox Aren't Worth Watching Yet Like We Thought They'd Be: and Men In Red Over Red Bulls.
* Putting the troll in comptroller.
* Rascals and scoundrels.
5:15: Draft Daze.
* Rosenthal: Ryan Pace Is Worst GM In NFL.
* Roquan Smith.
Just finished face-to-face with Roquan Smith, can't tell you how impressive he is. But . . . not a negative, just a fact, he's even smaller than I thought. Unless I'm 5-11, I'm NOT, he is barely over 6 feet and if he's 236 I'd love to know how he's hiding 15 or 20 Lb.'s of it.— Hub Arkush (@Hub_Arkush) April 27, 2018

* Meet Evan Silva:
Congrats to our own @evansilva for crushing it and defeating 97 others in @TheHuddleReport's Mock Draft contest! Check out https://t.co/jquBSHAIyI later tonight for his Round 2 Mock! #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/shpv0JsCYL— Rotoworld Football (@Rotoworld_FB) April 27, 2018
#Bears botched this badly but not because they didn't match. It's because they have a fundamental misunderstanding of RFA & tendering process. And now lose a talented young WR with no compensation. https://t.co/VsUwDE9Prb— Evan Silva (@evansilva) April 11, 2018
My man @evansilva earned himself all you can drink & eat during Sharp Football Beach Week 2018 with this absurdly prophetic take on the Patriots at #31 on his pod with @JoshNorris. Insane work... but that's not all... pic.twitter.com/rL0AyJWVkM— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) April 27, 2018
"Head coach Andy Reid's and offensive coordinator Matt Nagy's creative play design and blend of West Coast and spread concepts were tailor-made for the kind of personnel the Chiefs now have, but especially Alex Smith.
"The Chiefs attacked the Patriots with a variety of formations and options. There was lots of motion pre-snap. There was read-option. There was run-pass option. There were jet sweeps and fake jet sweeps. There was pistol. There was play-action. There were plenty of crossing routes.
"Rookie running back Kareem Hunt did a little bit of everything. Dynamic wideout Tyreek Hill lined up pretty much everywhere, including the backfield. Smith - who threw for more than 300 yards for just the seventh time in his 13-year career - deftly controlled all of it."
50:06: Cubs Cohering.
* Rhodes: Cubs clicking but still herky-jerky.
* Coffman: It's coming. They're cohering.
* Anti-sentimentalist who hates Cutesy Cubbie Stuff Coffman: Wrigley ruined. The place is ridiculous.
* "The Harry Caray Death Cult is still going strong."
* "Keep sending him up!"
* Kris Bryant's amazing helmet spin.
* Javy Baez, baseball savant.
1:07:05: Fire Beat Red Bulls In New York.
