The Cubs will not repeat as World Series champs. Sorry, Chicago. It’s hard to win back-to-back titles. It’s not happened since the 1998-2000 Yankees, and it’s not happening in 2017. Don’t get me wrong: The Cubs will be great, and likely flirt with 100 wins, but they won’t win it all. That’s because …

There was no putting just one man on this list Saturday with all the good games guys had. On a day of multi-homer games, four players had at least two home runs Saturday. Matt Kemp was the best. The 32-year-old went 3 for 5 Saturday with five RBIs, but more importantly, he tallied three home runs in the to lead the Braves to an 11-3 victory. It was the third three-homer game of Kemp’s career.
