It's a weekend of rivalries old and new -- Cardinals vs. Cubs, Dodgers vs. Padres, Bryce Harper's old team vs. Bryce Harper's new team.

David Schoenfield: At this very moment, we might be looking at Phillies-Mets considering what went down last week between Rhys Hoskins and Jacob Rhame after Rhame threw at Hoskins one night and then Hoskins unloaded a home run off him the following night and proceeded to enjoy the longest home run trot in recent memory.
How new stars are taking over San Diego With a $300 million star and MLB's top prospect, San Diego is home to a team arriving ahead of schedule.
