In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:
▪ Daniel Murphy of the Mets will not get out-storied by Carlos Beltran of the Astros - or likely anyone else for awhile.
▪ That drawing board the 49ers need to go back to seems to be misplaced.
Never miss a local story.
▪ Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Denny Hamlin treat losing differently.
▪ The Cowboys need Tony Romo more than they need Greg Hardy.
