Nope, still not a lot happening.

Good morning.

Today marks 55 days until Vanderbilt’s season opener against the Georgia Bulldogs. #55 for Vanderbilt is Daevion Davis. The 6’2”, 300-pound freshman from Madison, Alabama, is one of the most college-ready defensive tackle prospects Vanderbilt has gotten in some time, and figures to play early and often.

And, uh, that’s your Vanderbilt news for the day. This time of year is where the Anchor Drop serves as your daily reminder that we are still here.

Off the West End

This is getting extremely Mets:

Here’s an interesting article from SI about how NBA superstars really don’t call the shots as much as some want you to believe. Also, Grant Wahl on the global market for women’s soccer players.

And after Paul George got traded, Russell Westbrook could be on the move too.

Scoreboard

MLB: Twins 7, Rangers 4 ... Orioles 8, Blue Jays 1 ... Nationals 6, Royals 0 ... Pirates 12, Brewers 2 ... Marlins 5, Braves 4 ... Rays 4, Yankees 3 ... Indians 7, Reds 2 ... Astros 4, Angels 0 ... Red Sox 10, Tigers 6 ... Cubs 6, White Sox 3 ... Mets 6, Phillies 5 ... Giants 8, Cardinals 4 ... Diamondbacks 4, Rockies 2 ... Padres 3, Dodgers 1 ... Mariners 6, A’s 3.

PGA Tour: After three rounds at the 3M Open, it’s a three-way tie for first among Bryson DeChambeau, Collin Morikawa, and Matthew Wolff, with 11 more players within three shots of the lead. That sounds like a fun final round, at least if you don’t need big names to entertain you.

Women’s World Cup: England 1-2 Sweden.

Copa America: Argentina 2-1 Chile.

Today: A solid world soccer tripleheader, unless you’re the kind of person who wants to be mad about the women’s World Cup final (10:00 AM CT, FOX) having to share a date with the Copa America final (3:00 PM CT, Telemundo/ESPN+) and the Gold Cup final (8:00 PM CT, FS1.)

There’s also the aforementioned final round of the 3M Open (12:00 PM CT, Golf Channel; 2:00 PM CT, CBS.)

MLB has its final day of action before the All-Star break. David Price pitches the Red Sox in Detroit (12:10 PM CT.)
