The Red Sox are thinking to train a new first base player: Hanley Ramirez, who has never played first base professionally.

The Patriots will play the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. The longtime rivals are meeting for this first game after January's famous "deflategate" scandal. The Colts' attitude? Don't even speak the name of New England's football team.

Also, the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 Tuesday at their own stadium. It's the first time they have won a postseason series on their own turf, at Wrigley Field.
