Red Sox struggling to contain frustrations as Rick Porcello flings dugout water cooler

first_imgRick Porcello is not happy pic.twitter.com/fM2h1lGWha— Jason Mastrodonato (@JMastrodonato) April 6, 2019Porcello’s frustration is understandable as he threw a wild pitch which put a runner in scoring position during the inning and had a line drive dropped at second base by Brock Holt.Unbelievable pic.twitter.com/avlxEIcmbA— Red Sox Stats (@redsoxstats) April 6, 2019All of the runs wound up being earned in the fourth, but it was an annoying one nonetheless for a pitcher who is characteristically cool on the mound.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNAnd, to see Porcello visibly upset in the dugout is odd but it gives a pretty good indication of how the season has gone so far for the defending champions.Boston has made nine errors through nine games this season which is good for 27th in MLB. The team’s .970 fielding percentage entering Friday’s game is also 27th. Those errors have led to eight earned runs already. The Red Sox are off to a bad start this season and Rick Porcello is clearly feeling the frustration.After a four-run fourth inning in Boston’s matchup with the Diamondbacks on Friday, Porcello took out his anger on a water cooler in the dugout. That’s a big reason why the Red Sox came into the contest with a 2-6 record and found themselves down big early to the Diamondbacks.The team is frustrated early in the year and it’s hard to blame them.last_img read more

MLB trade rumors: One player Dodgers, Astros, Yankees would give up top prospect to get

first_img MLB trade rumors: What are the second moves Cubs, Red Sox, Yankees could make before deadline? Yankees: 66-37, First in American League East, best record in ALTrade: Deivi Garcia, pitcher to Mets for starter Noah SyndergaardA couple of things here: One, we we don’t think the Mets would do this trade one for one, but two, we really think they should. Syndergaard needs to get away from the Mets. That organization always has injuries to its pitchers and Syndergaard has been caught up in that. He should want to get away and the Mets should honestly trade him because they need to start looking to the future. Their roster doesn’t work apart from their young talent and they need to rebuild.Jon Heyman said on the “Big Time Baseball” podcast this week the Yankees would give up their top prospects to get Syndergaard. Here is the scenario which would get them Syndergaard. Again though, it will probably take someone else like Clint Frazier to be included, and even then, the Mets might not want to deal him to the Bronx. One player Dodgers, Astros, Yankees would give up top prospect to getDodgers: 68-37, First in National League West, best record in NLTrade: Keibert Ruiz, catcher to Rockies for reliever Scott ObergWe started with a deal almost exactly like the one the Indians made last year. The Dodgers need an arm to slot in front of Kenley Jansen and Oberg is the perfect fit. He’s the best reliever who could be traded (he has not been officially made available yet) and he has a year of control left after this one.This is a trade we don’t believe the Rockies could turn down. One of the few positions on the team they don’t have a ton of depth at the MLB level or in the minors. Ruiz could be ready to start next year and would be a foundational piece moving forward. And while the Dodgers won’t want to give up their top prospect to a divisional rival, isn’t a World Series title more important than a top prospect?Astros: 66-39, First in American League West, second-best record in ALTrade: Forrest Whitley, pitcher to Mets for starter Zack WheelerNow, before we say anything else, no Astros fan wants to trade Forrest Whitley and the organization won’t want to either. He has an arsenal similar to that of Gerrit Cole, he’s still somehow projectable and he is the best pitching prospect in MLB when he’s at his best. “At his best” is the key phrase here.But, all that being said, the Astros want Wheeler. He also has an arsenal similar to that of Cole and has high spin rates, which Houston loves. Would the Astros do this for a pure rental? No. We don’t think so. However, if Houston can get Wheeler into the rotation and help him improve down the line, we believe he would be more prone to signing with the Astros long term, which they absolutely need. Think a Jake Arrieta deal or one like Justin Verlander just got. He may want more, but with his injury history it could be tough to get in today’s market on the wrong side of 30. So if the Astros could get him and think they have a foot in the door to extending him, we think they’d do it for Whitley. The Indians made an interesting move last year that set a precedent for the market this season which really hadn’t been seen in recent years. Cleveland gave up top prospect Francisco Mejia in a one-for-one deal to get Brad Hand from the Padres.Teams typically won’t give up top prospects, but at the same time, organizations won’t usually deal a key player at the deadline for just one player. But on paper, this agreement made a lot of sense. The Indians absolutely needed an arm for the back of their bullpen and the Padres wanted a top-flight backstop prospect.center_img Now, in the short run it appears the Indians have won out on this agreement, but Mejia still has time to be the prospect many thought he would be.So what are some deals that could go down like that this season? We give you one for each of the three teams we believe have the best chance to win a World Series.

Bournemouth game too ‘demanding’ for Ozil, says Emery

first_imgEmery and Ozil have had a fractious relationship since the Spaniard replaced Arsene Wenger at the end of last season.Ozil missed the 3-1 win over West Ham in August, when it was reported he and Emery had argued at the training ground but the Arsenal boss said the player had been too ill to train.Ozil also threw a tantrum at being substituted in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace — in which he captained the side in the absence of the injured Petr Cech — in late October.He stomped past Emery and hurled his gloves to the turf in disgust before taking a seat on the bench.Emery, though, did not take umbrage publicly, stating “I like the players like him who show the character when we are not playing well”.Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: Mesut OzilLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Mesut Ozil’s relationship with Arsenal boss Unai Emery is again under scrutiny after the Spaniard appeared to suggest Sunday’s match at Bournemouth was too “demanding” for the German.The 30-year-old German World Cup-winning midfielder had played in the Gunners’ previous three matches — all draws — but Emery decided his style did not fit with Bournemouth’s robust approach.“We thought ‘how we can do better in the match’, a very demanding match with physicality and intensity,” Emery said following the 2-1 win for Arsenal, when asked why Ozil had not started.“Every player is important but today we tried with three centre-backs and it was another possibility for us to improve and find our best performance as a team.”Ozil, whose place in the team for Sunday’s North London derby with Tottenham could now be in doubt, did not even warm up for the match.“It depends on how the match is going,” said Emery, replying to a question on why Ozil had not warmed up.“I decided on another option. We knew this was a difficult stadium, a difficult team. Seventeen matches we haven’t lost but the last three we drew. That is not enough for us.”last_img read more

Jagdeo says Govt on uncertain path towards creating sound policy

first_imgDeveloping a new green strategyGuyana is far from producing cheap, clean energy and developing a sound green strategy that will foster economic growth and development while ensuring that the country’s natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which the well-being of Guyanese rest.This was the firm view expressed by Opposition Leader and General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Bharrat Jagdeo at a press conference held at his Church Street, Georgetown office on Thursday. Jagdeo claimed that Government has lost their way in creating a sound green strategy.He described the direction in which the Government has taken as one that is meander and does not have any clear objective and guidance. Rather, the Administration is being blown into directions that are unnecessary, which he believes will not yield any good result for the country.The PPP General Secretary did not fail to mention the opportunity the current Government lost out on in going forward with the Amaila Falls Hydroelectricity Project which started under the PPP and would have assisted in a large way to produce clean and cheap energy to a large section of Guyana.“The Amaila Falls, they’ve gone quiet on that so hydro power is dead under this Government… Cheap energy, it seems will be out of the window so people’s electricity bills will keep mounting or not be reduced and the business community will not have the required boost through a cheaper energy.”Meanwhile, commenting on recent reports that Government is now seeking assistance from the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) to provide solar panels to the hinterland region, Jagdeo said he does not support such a move as the Government seems uncertain or ignorant to several issues.According to the former Guyanese Head of State, the former PPP Government had left US$180 million through the Norwegian arrangement for this same project. He said US$17 million of that money was set aside as part of a project this year to do hinterland telecommunications.“That has not moved and we need to go and ask GGGI to tell us how to do this? We don’t need to do that or to ask them to help secure financing for these projects when we have money that the PPP left to the GRIF (Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund) that we haven’t even implemented as yet to many of these projects,” he said during the press conference lamenting that Government has indeed lost their way.Jagdeo said he has learnt that Government plans to also approach GGGI to look at a project for utility scale solar and to look at solar panels in the hinterland and to secure climate financing.“This shows how our Government has lost its way in relation to the climate change and the green sector. I was the President of the first assembly of the Global Green Growth Institute and I was part of the think tank before that… I know the purpose of the establishment of this organisation and to ask it to help you…”Again, Jagdeo reminded that 6000 plus solar panels were bought for various hinterland communities, which the current Government kept it in Georgetown. He also recalled that the PPP had initiated another project for 100 villages within the hinterland which would have made them beneficiaries of commercial scale solar panels. “We have prepared the villages already; we had gone out to procure the panels. Up to now that has not been implemented,” Jagdeo lamented.According to Jagdeo, at every available opportunity, President David Granger talks up his Government’s intention to develop huge wind farms, solar farms and hydropower plants; however, he hardly ventured into pointedly speaking about how he intends to attain those targets.Previously, the President had also pronounced that the Norway Funds will now be utilised for more strategic projects such as reforestation in mined-out areas, generation of energy apart from hydropower, coastal zone management and tackling the impacts of El Niño.But in light of certain actions taken by the current Administration, the former President believes that their promises are merely rhetoric for support of a green economy.Jagdeo has received many accolades and sat in high positions on various climate change related organisations. He is recognised as a global leader on climate change and climate finance.last_img read more
