Hamilton Tiger-Cats quarterback Johnny Manziel says signing with the Canadian Football League was all about wanting to get back on a football field as soon as possible.
Manziel said on PFT Live that he didn’t want to wait any longer, and that’s why he’s now in a CFL training camp, rather than hoping to end up in an NFL training camp or playing in the Alliance of American Football next year.
Ian Happ (B), 48 percent, Chicago Cubs vs. Cleveland Indians (RHP Trevor Bauer): Happ showed last week why we are still in a dangerous zone as far as statistical analysis. It feels like we’re starting to get some bankable sample sizes of work, but Happ added 152 points to his OPS in a five-game run that saw him go 6-15 with five extra-base hits. Just a week ago when he had a .718 OPS, he was off to a slow start, but now he’s sitting well above average with an .870 mark. Of course, he is still striking out 41 percent of the time so he’s hardly out of the woods. This is more of a hot-hand play as Bauer is no picnic for any hitters this year. It’s also meant to put Happ back on your radar as he may’ve fallen off in the midst of his cold Harrison Butker Youth jersey streak. He’s a flawed player, but still a very potent bat when he’s rolling.

Kemp has been patrolling right and left field this season. He made a sparkling play on Story in the second, chasing down a fly ball and snagging it before falling in full stretch. My mom was giving me a hard time. She said when I was younger I would glide. Now I just stick, Kemp said. I looked at the Jumbotron to make sure I was gliding.
