The Cavaliers are back at Progressive Field to support the Indians in the playoffs, just like they did last season. Even the Cavs’ new stars Cubs fan Dwyane Wade and Isaiah Thomas went with the group.
This summer offered an opportunity for former Orioles draft pick Pat Connaughton to revisit his professional baseball career after spending the past two seasons as a reserve guard in the NBA. But on Thursday afternoon, the Portland Trail Blazers guaranteed the third year on the contract Connaughton signed after being drafted out of Notre Dame in 2015.
“Good for Pat,” Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said before Thursday’s series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays. “It looks like a pretty good deal for him. I have believed and maintained since the kid was in high school that his future is in Major League Baseball, but he doesn’t see it that way. It’s really his career, right?”
