A bit of a breather after a busy Sunday. The Cubs have the day off.â†µ
6 pm, MLB Network: Braves at Phillies. The Braves trail the Phillies by three games in the NL East, but currently lead the wild card — by 2.5 games over the Padres and 3.5 games over the Rockies. That word “wild” could describe the NL’s week.â†µ
7:30 pm, ESPN: NFL, Saints at 49ers. The defending champions get their second straight national TV date.â†µ
9 pm, CSN Chicago: White Sox at Athletics. The Sox make their second trip to Oakland this year; it has been a house of pain for them for most of the last decade.
