    Jackson Holliday didn’t have anything in mind when it came to what he might do with the franchise-record $8.19 million signing bonus the Orioles provided him as the first overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft. His grandfather, too, was largely stumped, with both noting Jackson has a satisfactory truck. Only one item came to mind. “Maybe a cookbook,” Tom Holliday said. A longtime college coach who has spent the summer managing in the Cape Cod League, Tom Holliday said what Jackson wants more than anything is to begin his professional career, get on a baseball field and play. He’ll at last do so Thursday when he reports to the Orioles’ Florida complex a day after being introduced at Camden Yards, having not played in a game since his senior season at Oklahoma’s Stillwater High School ended in mid-May. “The anticipation is over,” Tom Holliday told The Baltimore Sun. “And now, let’s deal with expectation.” It will mark the first time 18-year-old Jackson is away from home, though Tom, like other Hollidays, noted he’s only a phone call away...
    (CNN)He came in with a lot of hype and expectation, and in his first professional outing, Chet Holmgren shone. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft by the Oklahoma City Thunder donned the blue jersey for the first time on Tuesday in the NBA Summer League. The Summer League is an off-season competition in which teams predominately play rookies, second year and fringe NBA players to give minutes to developing talents and see who fits and who doesn't. In the 98-77 victory over the Utah Jazz, Holmgren wowed the fans in his 24 minutes on the court, setting records as he went. The 20-year-old big man finished with 23 points -- including 4-of-6 attempts from three-point range -- seven rebounds and four assists.

When he was told afterwards that he had broken the block record, Holmgren said he wanted more. "Only six? That's the record? Oh, well I'm coming to break it again,"...
    After the Ravens made a surprising move by selecting Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton with the 14th overall pick of the 2022 NFL draft on Thursday night, another eye-popping move came soon after. The Ravens traded wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown and a third-round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for the No. 23 overall pick, which they later sent to the Buffalo Bills for the No. 25 pick and the No. 130 pick in the fourth round. The Ravens used the 25th pick to select Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum. Brown, who was shipped to Arizona along with the No. 100 overall pick, was the Ravens’ leading wide receiver last season. He was coming off a career year, finishing with 91 catches for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns despite an injury-hampered season for quarterback Lamar Jackson. General manager Eric DeCosta told reporters after the first round Thursday night that the Brown trade was a “complicated topic.” DeCosta said Brown requested a trade after the 8-9 season, stating “he was not happy and wanting to play elsewhere.” Brown started raising speculation about...
    St. Charles East coach Len Asquini put the names of all the former Saints who were drafted into professional baseball on the side of the press box. Asquini, who coached several of those players, believes he will have to reserve a spot on the list for junior third baseman Jake Zitella. “He’s going to be on that board,” Asquini said of Zitella. “He’s the next player who is going to go up there.” That’s also part of the plan for Zitella, who committed to Illinois before this season. “My overall goal is to be drafted and be drafted high,” Zitella said. “I want to say I always wanted to play Major League Baseball, but I started taking it more seriously freshman year. “My grind doesn’t stop now.” Asquini took notice of Zitella when he was 13 years old. “You could see his bat speed and the ball sounded different off his bat then,” Asquini said. “You knew there was something. He was just a little bit ahead of everybody. He’s stayed better than the others.” Talent evaluators across the state...
    Lame-duck Mayor Bill de Blasio again blamed the courts for New York City's skyrocketing crime numbers as he touted a small decrease in the murder rate while ignoring an 11 percent jump in overall crime. According to the NYPD's latest monthly numbers, overall crime was up 11.2 percent last month compared with October 2020. Robbery was up by 15.8 percent and felony assault rose by 13.8 percent.  The mayor cited statistics claiming that felony trials are down 92 percent from 2019. He also said pleas in felony cases are down 53 percent and sentencing is down 55 percent.  'I'll tell you what's not working, and this is a profound problem: Our court system,' de Blasio said at his press conference Wednesday.  'After all the times that we've talked about the problems in the court system, we're still seeing vey little change.' A spokesman for the city's court system slammed de Blasio's comments in a statement provided to DailyMail.com. 'Someone should alert the Mayor that Charles Lindbergh made it to Paris, since that would mirror how out of touch the Mayor is...
    Knicks snag young point guard Miles McBride with the 36th overall pick, is he the future? Alexander Wilson July 29, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The Knicks have made a flurry of trades, but they finally found a young point guard to develop around in West Virginia standout Mile McBride. With a desperate need for a young player to develop behind a veteran, McBride fits the bill perfectly. Marc Berman of The Post stated recently that West Virginia point guard Mile McBride was a target for Thibodeau, who saw tons of upside: According to one league source, Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau was pushing for West Virginia sophomore point guard Miles McBride, who has been projected in some mocks as an early second-round or late first-round pick. It’s unclear at which slot Thibodeau would prefer to select McBride — No. 19 or 21 in the first round, or No. 32 early in the second round — but the 20-year-old impressed him in his Knicks workout.

    Knicks finally execute, selecting Quentin Grimes with the 25th overall pick, what does he bring? Alexander Wilson July 29, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit After trading away the 19th and 21st overall picks, the New York Knicks finally landed a player with the 25th overall selection. Passing on several point guards, including Miles McBride and Sharife Cooper, the front office decided on Houston sharpshooter Quentin Grimes. The Knicks are on the board at No. 25 and theyre targeting Quentin Grimes, per sources. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 30, 2021 The Knicks worked Grimes out several days ago, as the 6’4″ shooting guard impressed. Having transferred from Kansas to Houston in 2019, he has been on their radar for quite some time. As of a month ago, he was expected to be a late first-round or early second-round selection, so landing him at 25 could be a bit premature. Nonetheless, Grimes is a high-end shooter, averaging 17.8 points last season with Houston. He...
    A Massachusetts lobsterman is recovering from minor injuries after he was gobbled up by a humpback whale on Friday morning. Fifty-six-year-old Michael Packard was chasing crustaceans near Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown when he saw schools of fish swim by him as he descended to the ocean bottom. Then, he said, everything went dark. “All of a sudden, I felt this huge shove, and the next thing I knew, it was completely black,” Packard said on Friday, according to the Cape Cod Times. “I could sense I was moving, and I could feel the whale squeezing with the muscles in his mouth.” HIKER SUSTAINS 'SIGNIFICANT INJURIES' AFTER BEAR ATTACK AT YELLOWSTONE “I was completely inside (the whale); it was completely black,” Packard added. “I thought to myself, ‘There’s no way I’m getting out of here. I’m done. I’m dead.' All I could think of was my boys — they’re 12 and 15 years old.” Packard said he initially thought he had been nibbled by a great white shark, but he couldn’t feel teeth inside...
    Justin Fields is one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft class, but general managers may be hesitant on selecting him next Thursday after he shared medical information with teams across the league. According to the NFL Network, Fields has confirmed during the pre-draft process that he is managing epilepsy, which is a neurological disorder that can cause seizures. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Doctors do not believe that it has affected his play on the field and he may eventually outgrow it because other family members have. Fields’ symptoms have been less frequent over the past few years, the report stated. Ohio State head football coach Ryan Day took his thoughts to Twitter to address the situation. EX-JETS QB MARK SANCHEZ HAS ADVICE FOR PRESUMPTIVE NO. 2 PICK ZACH WILSON ABOUT PLAYING IN NEW YORK "Justin’s health, toughness and work ethic have never been an issue and I am incredibly proud of his professionalism and the character he displays on and off the field.  The fact that he never missed a game at Ohio State...
    Joe Burrow knows exactly who he wants the Cincinnati Bengals to take with the No. 5 pick. The Cincinnati Bengals seem to have gotten the quarterback right with Joe Burrow, but the organization needs to get him some help with the No. 5 overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. Burrow went No. 1 overall out of LSU in the 2020 NFL Draft. The 2019 Heisman Trophy winner had a promising rookie season derailed by a torn ACL. While he probably would love to see his LSU teammate Ja’Marr Chase in Bengals stripes or Florida tight end Kyle Pits if the Atlanta Falcons pass on him at No. 4 Burrow is cool with whatever the Bengals decide to do with the No. 5 overall pick. “I trust the organization to do what they do and do their jobs and pick the best player,” said Burrow to Cris Collinsworth. “I think we’re in a good spot to take just the best available. Especially after the free agency we had. We got a lot of really good players that are going to be a...
    Virginias high court approves removal of Confederate statues US may be in early stages of fourth wave as Covid cases rise, reports say Oklahoma State standout and potential top overall pick Cade Cunningham on Thursday declared for the 2021 NBA Draft in a press conference alongside his coach, Mike Boynton, officially starting the clock on the race for the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. © Provided by CBS Sports Cunningham led the Big 12 in scoring in his one-and-done freshman season and took home Big 12 Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year honors, joining an exclusive group of Marcus Smart, Michael Beasley and Kevin Durant to earn both awards. He also led the Cowboys to a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament, their highest since they were a 2 seed in 2004 and 2005. At least one scout last year told me that Cunningham was viewed in such high regard in the scouting community that he would have gone No. 1 overall in last year's draft had he been eligible, but the...

This story was produced by Wisconsin Watch. Calvin Johnson spent his final weeks at Prairie du Chien Correctional Institution wracked in pandemic anxiety, a former cellmate recalled. He closely tracked COVID-19’s spread in and outside of the medium-security state prison — eyeing infection counts in surrounding Crawford County and across Wisconsin. Johnson, who grew up in Milwaukee and was affectionately called “Chicken,” wore a mask at all times in the cramped cell that he shared with three others, said Randy Forsterling, one of the cellmates. Johnson, 52, lived with high blood pressure, asthma and the sense that COVID-19 would kill him. “I was given 13 years for my crime. I was not given a death sentence,” Johnson, who was convicted of armed robbery in 2016, wrote in an Oct. 19 request to modify his sentence for health reasons.

But here were are and here is my friend Charles Curtis’ mock draft to get you ready for tonight’s drama. Charles, like a lot of people, doesn’t have LaMelo Ball going No. 1 overall to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Instead, he has him gong No. 2 to the Golden State Warriors, which would be a fun thing to watch. LaMelo, whose brother Lonzo went No. 2 to the Lakers in...
    With the 2020 NBA Draft just two weeks away, the Golden State Warriors are putting the final touches on their big board in preparation for their selection at No. 2 overall. According to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle‘s Connor Letourneau, league sources have indicated that the team will likely select Georgia Bulldogs guard Anthony Edwards, provided that the Minnesota Timberwolves elect to go in a different direction with their pick at No. 1. Per Letourneau, Golden State’s decision-makers share a belief that the former freshman standout could evolve into an elite player at the professional level. “The Warriors are believed to view Edwards as someone who can blossom into a face of a franchise and multi-time All-Star if put in the right situation,” he wrote. The league insider further opined that Edwards’ skill set could make him an ideal fit given the current construction of the Warriors’ roster. As it stands, he likely wouldn’t be required to shoulder much of the load playing behind perennial All-Stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Golden State’s hope would reportedly be that...
