Every week we'll be sending out a Right Down Euclid bulletin blast to update you on the latest news, articles and podcasts that have been featured on the newsletter throughout the week.
But, before we get started, a quick housekeeping note. I participated in the ninth-ever VeloSano, which is Cleveland Clinic’s premier fundraising initiative in which 100% of every dollar raised supports lifesaving cancer research at Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Children’s. Thanks to your support, I was able to shave off nearly 30 minutes from my time last year. But, we're still a little short of the initial goal overall. Thankfully, you still have until October 1 to donate if you're able!
Here is a direct link to my fundraiser page. With every dollar donated we may not be able to eradicate cancer tomorrow but, we'll be one step closer to ending it for good. Thank you for your support!
Also, some of you might think you're subscribed when in reality, you aren't! You should do that since for the next several days, one of you will be chosen at random to become a premium subscriber on the house!

The same can be said for rookie kicker Cade York as well, who became a household hero along the shores of Lake Erie. Today, we'll break all that down, and more, in the first of many weekly takeaways on this year's iteration of the Browns. Read more.
With about a month left in the season, who could the Cleveland Guardians face in the playoffs?

Ultimately, it all ends on who the Guardians draw and, today we'll begin breaking down teams Cleveland could end up facing come playoff time. Read more.
Changing of the guard – The beginning of the Donovan Mitchell era brings new expectations to the Cleveland Cavaliers
Trading for a star like Mitchell accelerates expectations, but it’s the furthest thing from an absolute. It's going to take time and there will be a lot of growing pains, especially early into Mitchell's first season with the Cavaliers. But, when Cleveland reaches the playoffs for the first time without LeBron James since the 1997-98 season, the growing pains they went through this season will all be worth it. Read more.

What wings could be out there for the Cleveland Cavaliers? – Right Down Euclid mailbag
Now, this is where Cleveland may want to comb the market a bit using what trade assets they have left after acquiring Mitchell.
