Orioles’ Trey Mancini wins AL Comeback Player of the Year, Ryan Mountcastle named AL Outstanding Rookie in Players Choice Awards

From the moment he stepped back onto the field in spring training to mark the beginning of his comeback from colon cancer, Orioles star Trey Mancini has been warmly welcomed by his peers.

Their admiration for his return to play after missing all of 2020 for chemotherapy and treatment earned him American League Comeback Player of the Year in the 2021 Players Choice Awards, while fellow Orioles first baseman Ryan Mountcastle was named the league’s Outstanding Rookie. The winners were announced during Wednesday night’s “SportsCenter” broadcast.

“It means the world. I’m so honored and humbled to receive this award,” Mancini said on ESPN. “When I got my diagnosis, I wasn’t totally sure that I’d be playing baseball again, so to be able to come back and play a whole season and receive this award means everything to me.”

On Tuesday Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had a meltdown at the tail end of his weekly press conference, having been asked about rumors that he’s a candidate for several different Power 5 head coaching jobs.

“I don’t have time for that speculation. That’s a joke to me. I’ve got one of the best jobs in all of professional sports. Why would I have any interest in coaching college football?” Tomlin responded, clearly getting hot under the collar.

“That will be the last time that I address (these rumors). And not only today, but moving forward. Never say never, but never, okay?” concluded Tomlin, who has been in his current job for the past 15 years.

ESPN insider thinks Washington will end up with Fitzpatrick originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Since entering the NFL in 2005, Ryan Fitzpatrick has played for eight different franchises. And due to his soon-to-be-expired contract with the Dolphins, it appears that the passer and his beard could be headed to yet another destination when free agency begins.

Could that destination be Washington, though?

One ESPN insider thinks so.

During a Thursday appearance on SportsCenter, Field Yates joined for a segment where he predicted the landing spots for tons of different signal-callers, and when he focused in on the Burgundy and Gold, Fitzpatrick was the name he brought up.

“The Washington Football Team is kind of like the Patriots in that no man’s land,” he began.

“They have the 19th overall pick, probably can’t select a first-round quarterback, have a really good defense,” he continued. “How about Ryan Fitzpatrick, who I

“Shoot, you got a take, Jay? I think they all suck, that’s my take,” Clark replied when Harris asked him for his take after Week 12. “They all stink. It’s freaking…it’s confusing to me, right, because every week you’re asked the question, ‘Who is gonna win the NFC East?’ And I’m like, ‘The hell if I know.’ I just don’t.”

The Giants have won three straight games following a 1-7 start, leaving them ahead of the Washington Football Team (also 4-7) after winning both
