Mike Trout reaches 30 home runs for the fourth time in his career, which makes you wonder what his final total could have been without his DL stint. His 30 home runs in 109 games projects to 43 homers over 155 games. The injury also means Trout will likely finish out of the top two in the MVP voting for the first time in his career.

WSU practicing for USC. Is their secret weapon to unleash Mothra?!

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Count USC QB Sam Darnold as someone who is indifferent to what people do during the playing of the National Anthem: "Whatever anyone chooses to do, it's not up to me to tell them what to do and what not to do. If someone were to stay in the locker room, that's totally cool. If they're my teammate, they're still going to be my teammate and still gonna be my friend. It doesn't really make a difference to me. ... If anyone on my team decides to kneel or stand, it doesn't make a difference to me. I'm going to judge the person for who they are as a person, not for their beliefs politically."
