The St Louis Cardinals hold a 0.5 game lead atop the National League Central. Should the Chicago Cubs overtake them, they have a cushion in the wildcard standings with the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies a couple of games back.
The Cubs are currently half a game behind the St Louis Cardinals, with the Milwaukee Brewers just two and a half games behind. Cincinnati Reds are eight back after underperforming in 2019 despite a top rotation.
DeMarcus Cousins has torn his ACL, leaving the Los Angeles Lakers with a roster dilemma ahead of the 2019/20 NBA season.
Cousins’ injury is a cruel reminder that nothing is guaranteed in this league and teams must take nothing for granted. With the Lakers already one man down, even more pressure will be put on an ageing LeBron James to deliver in what will be his seventeenth season.

The Atlanta Braves looked like one of the most complete teams in the National League after the MLB Trade Deadline. That was thanks to the addition of a trio of star relievers in Chris Martin, Mark Melancon and Shane Greene. But once they stepped foot on the mound, it went horribly wrong for the Braves.
