The Baltimore Orioles might have one of the worst records in Major League Baseball, yet their off-the-field situation could be uglier than their on-the-field results. According to the Associated Press, longtime franchise owner Peter Angelos' sons, John and Louis, and wife, Georgia, are now entangled in a legal battle over control of the team.
University of Houston cornerback Damarion Williams was selected on the final day of the NFL Draft on Saturday as the Cougars finished the three-day, seven-round event with three total selections for a second consecutive year. Williams was taken with the 36th pick of the fourth round by the Baltimore Ravens as the 141st overall selection. The Miami native is the second Cougar all-time to be selected by Baltimore, joining Tyus Bowser (2nd round, 2017). With the pick, Houston has seen 14 defensive players selected since 2016. Multiple Cougars were drafted for the fifth time in the last seven years.
New York Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson received a one-game suspension and must pay an undisclosed fine for a comment made to Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson, Major League Baseball announced Monday. Donaldson admitted to calling Anderson, one of baseball’s ever-shrinking cohort of Black stars, "Jackie" during the Yankees’ 7-5 win over the White Sox on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. The comment was a reference to Jackie Robinson, who became the first Black player to play in the major leagues in 1947. Robinson endured relentless racism as he integrated a sport that continues to struggle to make Black athletes feel at home 75 years later.

Although holding the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft is usually the product of a terrible season, that selection is a beacon of hope. Sure, the previous year stunk. The right prospect, however, could be a franchise-changing piece. That's happened at various points through NFL history, considering dozens of first overall selections have become Pro Bowlers or All-Pro players.

When Mike Elias first viewed the Orioles’ general manager opening in 2018, he saw a unique opportunity. He wouldn’t be just rebuilding the player pool in Baltimore, a group already gutted by a trade-deadline sell-off earlier that summer
I certainly felt like Mountcastle should’ve finished higher in the rookie vote but just by receiving support he joined an "exclusive club"
Fresh off a hard-fought 4-3 victory over the Tigers yesterday, the Orioles will look to make it two in a row with another win tonight. Detroit took the series opener on Thursday by a score of 6-2. The Birds will have to do a better job against future Hall of Famer Miguel Cabrera, who’s gone 5-for-6 with two home runs in the past two games.
Phew! For a minute it looked like Cousins wouldn't have a viable group protecting him on the left side of the offensive line. Minnesota sought not only prospects to fit its zone-blocking scheme but also found more size. First-rounder Christian Darrisaw is now responsible for Cousins' blindside, and the Vikings can be confident that the rookie left tackle will fare well after allowing just three pressures and one sack on 264 pass blocks last season, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. But perhaps the biggest benefit will be the expected improvement of the Vikings' interior pass protection thanks to the drafting of guard Wyatt Davis in the third round. -- Courtney Cronin
