On today's episode of Chicago Sports HQ chatter, Cole and I discuss the MLB draft as the All-star break continues.

How did both the Cubs and the White Sox help their future, and how has the independent league signings helped the Cubs in 2021.

We also talk about what the second half has in store for the two teams and if the Cubs could become buyers again if they get off to a hot start.

Things went from bad to worse this week for the Blackhawks as Duncan Keith has found a new home in Edmonton.

How does his departure change this team, and can the Blackhawks do enough to acquire Seth Jones as his replacement?

As more allegations surround this team from 2010, does the future hold for everyone involved, and will the NHL step in and hand down stricter punishments.

With the NBA finals knotted up at two, we look at the past four games and how things have gone so far. We also talk about team USA and their inability to win games in exhibition play and if that should cause concern.

As the Bears await training camp, the NFL world was rocked by the Richard Sherman news. Is this a common problem for him or more of a player battling demons even he can't stop?

Cole and I close out the show by discussing the WNBA and the upcoming Olympic games.
