ESPN’s perfect NFL team includes surprising Bengal

When assembling the “perfect” NFL team, Bengals defensive tackle Pat Sims likely isn’t one of your priority selections. Bill Barnwell of ESPN took a shot at developing what he considers the optimal NFL roster, factoring in salary, future considerations and self-imposed regulations (to stop him from taking too many Patriots or Cowboys...

Sports Today: Reds show backbone, potential in taut thriller at Wrigley Field

Unless it costs them a slot in the draft next summer, the Reds' 2-1 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night doesn't mean anything.  But it sure was fun.  Tight. Tense. Tremendous.  Unless you hate pitcher's duels, this one had everything.  An exciting young starter (Luis Castillo) making a strong appearance at an iconic...
