Quick screen passes regularly spun off the fingertips of quarterback Vernon Adams at Eastern Washington and Oregon, but this one needed some extra zip.

Giving the Rays permission to explore playing part of their home schedule in Montreal is seen by baseball owners as “a way to preserve baseball in Tampa,” according to baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred. Major League Baseball’s executive council last month told Rays owner Stuart Sternberg he could explore the two-city possibility but did not specify a timeframe. Manfred said MLB will not expand beyond 30 teams until the Rays and Oakland Athletics resolve their ballpark situations.
The Carolina Hurricanes are keeping star forward Sebastian Aho and say they will match the $42 million offer sheet the Montreal Canadiens tendered him. General manager Don Waddell announced the move less than 24 hours after the Canadiens extended their offer to the 21-year-old restricted free agent. He says it was an “easy decision.” Aho will receive a five-year, front-loaded, bonus-heavy contract worth $42.27 million.

Rays owner Stu Sternberg says a shared season with Montreal is the best option for his team, which has struggled to attract fans.
The principal owner of the Rays says it’s unrealistic for his team to play full time in the Tampa Bay area and a shared season with Montreal is the best option. Stu Sternberg says he would be “hard-pressed” for the team to stay exclusively in Tampa or St. Petersburg and he is “asking for open minds.” Tampa Bay is averaging less than 15,000 fans a game. Commissioner Rob Manfred has said the Rays have “broad permission to explore what’s available.”
As the Tampa Bay Rays look into the idea of playing games north of the border, it’s clear that baseball is doomed on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
The mayor of St. Petersburg says he will not introduce a proposed deal that would see the Tampa Bay Rays split time in Montreal. In fact, Mayor Rick Kriseman thinks this is all a bit “silly.” The Rays have received the go-ahead from Major League Baseball to explore the possibility of hosting home games in St. Petersburg and Montreal. The idea would be for the Rays to play the more temperate spring months in Tampa and finish the rest of the season in Montreal, the former home of the Expos.
