Even as our coverage of Pitchfork continues, we fans of work and pleasure have christened this Sports & Rec Week on the Bleader. Sunday got things off to an auspicious start baseballwise, with afternoon wins for both the Cubs (3-1 over the Diamondbacks) and Sox (2-1 over the Royals, behind All-Star pitcher Chris Sale). The Cubs' victory capped off a rare sweep, just their second this season, and gave them four straight—they've actually won 12 of their last 16 games and, for now, no longer have the worst record in baseball. The Sox, meanwhile, are at ten games over .500 and continue to cling to first place in the AL Central, with a four-game stretch in Boston up next and the Tigers hoping to pounce in the aftermath.

But what's that you say? You don't give a shit about baseball?

There's also the Olympics coming up, the Reader softball team's impending face-off with current media-league leader Chicago Now, the—who knows? So far we've got a hard-hitting lineup of Ted Cox, Tal Rosenberg, Michael Miner, and Kevin Warwick.
