He returned to the college scouting job in 2006, becoming the Director of Player Personnel in 2008. Campbell remained the team’s Director of Player Personnel until 2015, when he once again became the Director of College Scouting.

The son of former Falcons coach Marion Campbell, Scott Campbell took a job with Atlanta in 1987, remaining with the team in a variety of roles until leaving for the Chiefs in 1997 and later becoming Director of Player Personnel in Chicago for 2000.

It’s a good thing the pitching staff is dealing, holding opponents to three runs or fewer in 13 of the Indians’ past 14 games, because the offense has barely managed to score more than three per game during that same stretch.

The Cardinals have quietly climbed near the top of the home run leaderboard. They have 30 home runs, tied for most in the National League and second most in the majors. That charge has been led by elder statesman Yadier Molina and youngster Paul DeJong. The team is on pace for more than 225 home runs, which would be second most in franchise history behind a 2000 output of 235 that involved Mark McGwire. The Cardinals didn’t break 200 last year, even in the Year of the Home Run. — Langs
