Today's Thought

Grace is love. But love of a special sort…which is kind to the unkind and generous to the ungrateful and undeserving.

The Badlands Big Sticks are the 2019 Expedition League Champions...

    DICKINSON, ND - The Badlands Big Sticks are the 2019 Expedition League Champions. They take down the defending champion Western Nebraska Pioneers 6-5 on Sunday to take the series 2-1 and bring the title to Dickinson.



     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have hired Toronto Blue Jays executive Andrew Miller as chief operating officer. Miller ran the Blue Jays' business operations for four years, including capital improvements at Rogers Centre and at the team's spring training facilities. Before that, he spent a decade in the Cleveland Indians organization in a variety of jobs. Miller replaces Kevin Warren, who became Big Ten commissioner in June.


    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins have the day off today before beginning an interleague series in Milwaukee on Tuesday.

    The Cleveland Indians will open a home series against Boston a day after moving into a tie with Minnesota atop the AL Central. Cleveland took three of four from the Twins over the weekend, continuing a 42-17 surge since June 4th that erased Minnesota's big lead. Rookie right-hander Zach Plesac will open the three-game series for Cleveland against Red Sox left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez.



     NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball will open its 2020 season on March 26th, its earliest start other than international games. The schedule also features an April series in Puerto Rico between the New York Mets and Miami Marlins.

     Globe Life Field, the new home of the Texas Rangers, opens March 31st.

     The commissioner's office said all 30 teams could play on opening day for the first time since 1968.

     The 2020 regular season is to end September 27th, putting the World Series on track to run from October 20th-28th. The All-Star Game is at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on July 14th. The Cubs and Cardinals will play two games in London in June. The Yankees and White Sox will play August 13th at a ballpark next to the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa.



     UNDATED (AP) - The NFL is reiterating its stance that players aren't allowed to practice or play with unapproved equipment. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tweeted out a statement Monday that says players can only use helmets that have been certified by experts to be safe to use. The statement came as Raiders star receiver Antonio Brown fights to use his old helmet. The NFL tweet didn't mention Brown by name.

     Elsewhere around the NFL:

     - The Jacksonville Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson is back on the field. He has been removed from the physically unable to perform list two days after coach Doug Marrone said he didn't believe Robinson would be ready for the season opener. Robinson went through individual drills for the first time in nearly a year. The second-round draft pick from Alabama in 2017 tore a knee ligament last September.

     - Browns defensive end Chad Thomas sustained a neck injury in practice today and is undergoing further tests at a hospital. Thomas was immobilized on a backboard for precaution and carted off the field after getting injured. The team said he has movement and feeling in all of his extremities. Thomas was taken to the hospital for more testing and examination. The Browns drafted Thomas in the third round in 2018 out of Miami.

     - The New England Patriots have acquired tight end Eric Saubert from the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for a conditional draft pick. The Patriots have questions at tight end following Rob Gronkowski's retirement. Veteran Ben Watson will be suspended for the first four games of the season following a positive test for a banned substance.



     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes have signed team president and general manager Don Waddell to a three-year contract extension. Owner Tom Dundon announced the signing. Terms were not disclosed. The 60-year-old Waddell had been mentioned as a candidate for the Minnesota Wild's GM vacancy. Waddle has been with the Hurricanes since 2014. The Hurricanes made their first playoff appearance in a decade during his first season as the full-time GM. Waddle was also the Atlanta Thrashers' GM from 1998-2010.



     UNDATED (AP) - The upcoming NBA schedule will be a little bit easier on players. And fans might be catching some more sleep. The league announced its 2019-20 schedule, featuring another dip in back-to-back games for teams and a major change in the number of nationally televised games starting at 10:30 p.m. on the East coast. Golden State and the Los Angeles Lakers will start several games a half-hour earlier than usual, while ESPN and Turner are going to earlier start times on many of their midweek doubleheader nights.

     Roughly half of the nation's television homes are in the East time zone - but now, a number of the league's biggest stars play on the West coast. It wasn't uncommon for nationally televised midweek games to end around 1 a.m. or even later last season, which was not good for ratings.



     WHITE PLAINS, N. Y. (AP) - Two-time major champion Svetlanta Kuznetosva has moved into the main draw of the U.S. Open after Dominika Cibulkova withdrew because of an injured left foot. Mackenzie McDonald also has pulled out of the year's last Grand Slam tournament. He cited ongoing recovery from a hurt hamstring. McDonald will be replaced in the field at Flushing Meadows by Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

     Kuznetsova won the U.S. Open in 2004 and the French Open in 2009. She becomes the seventh past champion at Flushing Meadows to enter the field for women's singles this year.

     The tournament draw is August 22nd. Main-draw play begins August 26th.
