Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who died Tue. at 99, was a lifelong Cubs fan who said his first two trips to Wrigley Field were for Game 1 of the 1929 World Series (a 3-1 loss to the A's) and Game 3 in ‘32 — he said he thought Babe Ruth DID call his shot on his mythical home run that day (the Yankees won 7-5 on 2 HRs each by Ruth & Lou Gehrig). In 2005, he threw a ceremonial first pitch at Wrigley that he called "the highlight of my career." And he attended a Cubs World Series game in 2016. Another sports connection: in 2001, Stevens delivered the 7-2 majority opinion that resulted in Casey Martin being allowed to use a cart in a PGA tournament, because of a disability — he said the tour's walking rule was "at best peripheral" and "not an indispensable feature" of golf at any level.

Theo Epstein, on the one trade deadline this year: “You have to anticipate where you might be vulnerable to an injury and try to build that depth up in advance…knowing there is no escape valve in August. You really have to do all your work this month.”
