MLB playoffs 2019: Athletics to lean on the rookies who earned their trust in September

first_imgThe A’s could not assume any of their top three prospects would be able to play at all in MLB this season, let alone make the postseason roster, when the front office stayed relatively quiet at the trade deadline.Left-hander A.J. Puk was rehabbing an elbow injury, and fellow southpaw Jesus Luzardo was shut down with a lat strain at the time. Catcher Sean Murphy just reinjured the knee he had surgery on earlier in the year. So, it was a gamble for Oakland’s front office to only acquire left-hander Jake Diekman at the deadline, supplementing its underachieving bullpen but not addressing its offensive depth at all. The organization’s restrained approach showed outsized faith in its MLB relief corps in particular, as well as the health of its big-league backstops.Two months later, the A’s know they probably would not have made the postseason if not for their rookies coming up to provide excellent Septembers for manager Bob Melvin. Puk and Luzardo formed a crucial duo able to pitch multiple innings in tight games, helping revive a wheezing bullpen sickened by the sudden declines of Lou Trivino, Blake Treinen and Joakim Soria. Murphy, meanwhile, slashed .250/.339/.577 in September and offered a strong defensive presence behind the plate. He uplifted the catcher position and became a bench weapon to the squad in the games he did not start.Oakland’s rookie trio will be relied upon to produce in important moments this postseason, filling gaps veterans have struggled to secure.”You see it around baseball now, there being more put on the younger players,” Melvin said. “They’ve been significant for us here, and my guess is they’ll continue to be. … We’re lucky to have (them).”MORE: SN playoff predictionsPuk and Luzardo hold defined roles for Wednesday’s wild-card game against the Rays. It is a near certainty one — if not both — pitch out of the bullpen in the middle innings. Melvin will aggressively monitor the performance of starter Sean Manaea, who has performed well since returning from shoulder surgery (1.21 ERA) but is still at risk of fatigue. And Puk and Luzardo, respectively ranked the No. 42 and No. 12 prospects in baseball by MLB.com entering the year, are easy choices to form a bridge toward end-of-game options such as Liam Hendriks. Veteran Mike Fiers, who was a starter during the regular season, could also chip in there.Murphy’s place in the wild-card tilt is less clear. While he is a better offensive option against a right-handed starter like Charlie Morton, Josh Phegley offers more experience behind the dish. Murphy played in 19 September games and received 52 at-bats; Phegley featured in 13 and had 40 at-bats. It is unclear which one will start. Even if he does not crack the lineup, though, Murphy would be a viable pinch-hit option. The team has not had a catcher good enough to substitute in at the plate since it platooned John Jaso and Derek Norris five years ago. It is a luxury for Melvin to have one in his toolbox.The A’s likely would have found it tough to overcome the Rays and Indians without Puk, Luzardo and Murphy, given a late-season schedule that included trips to New York and Houston. “As long as they can continue to perform like this,” Melvin said, “we’ll look for ways to get them involved.”last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Colin Reichenbergerby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Colin Reichenberger, a junior, broke the Wellington High School 300-meter hurdles at the K.T. Woodman at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium Friday.Reichenberger ran the 300 with a 40.49 time. The previous record was set by Jim Wetta, who ran it in 40.5 in 1984. What was unique about this record is Reichenberger had not run this race before this year.The K.T. Woodman is a Shocker Pre-State Challenge, and it is used by many participants to get a feel of the state track meet ahead in late May. Class 1 to 3A track athletes are grouped together and Class 4 to 6A are grouped together. The track meet is also unique because in certain events the top eight participates compete in the “ELITE” while others compete in the open.Reichenberger also placed second in the ELITE 110 meter hurdles.Jaycee Schettler, a freshman, was first in the ELITE 100-meter dash.Leah Nelson finished second in the Class 4A-6A, 400 meters.Jaedyn Ledesma finished first in 4A-6A in the 800 meters.Holly Wright placed third in the ELITE high jump.The girls 4×400 meter relay team finished third in the ELITE. The 4×400 team is made up of Dietra Sober, Nelson, Ledesma and Wright.The full stats for the event can be found here: http://stats.catchitkansas.com/report_trackfield-game_results.php?game_id=129374Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

He was always out and about attending functions plus he was easy to talk to. Now onto this election. Is it just me or does anyone else see a conflict with the chamber director wanting to be mayor. Seems very small town and a serious conflict of interest . Chamber is always asking and receiving money from the city. In some cases the mayor does have to vote. Even though I am sure she would excuse herself from that vote then there would be no outcome…plus is the council just going to push that agenda. City employees are not allowed to run for city council or mayor maybe the chamber director should be included in that category Report Reply 1 reply · active 287 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down MJE · 287 weeks ago It’s now a moot point, since Shelly has resigned as director of the chamber, but the Chamber is a private organization, but there is a difference between actual city employees, and people who work for private organizations that may benefit from decisions the city makes . The hospital has received funding from the city, in the form of sales taxes and utility abatements- would it be right to say hospital employees can’t run for city offices?

NHL reveals All-Star Game jerseys, pays homage to St. Louis

first_imgNHL All-Star Game 2020: Rosters | Last Men In ballotWithout further ado, here they are:🔥🔥🔥🔥The 2020 @Honda #NHLAllStar Game jerseys by @adidashockey are here! pic.twitter.com/wy43BEQKXj— NHL (@NHL) January 8, 2020Now, before we go any further, let’s dive into the details.Under the format in which each division makes up its own team and plays a mini-tournament, they all need to be equipped with both dark and light uniform options. When this is the case, it’s hard to make all the teams’ color schemes work with a black or white primary on a jersey. To simplify this challenge, the designers went with a monochromatic logo for each of the 31 teams, limiting their individual schemes so that, hopefully, they look better on just a black or white background.MORE: The NHL’s Winter Classic and All-Star Game still matterSome, like the Devils, Maple Leafs, Kings and Blues, look fine because they already have mostly monochromatic logos, while others, such as the Penguins, Canucks, Bruins and Blackhawks, miss the target. Also, keep in mind that some will look better on white rather than black and vice versa, so be sure to check them both out before making a purchase.There are some hidden intricacies that the league capitalized on with the event heading for St. Louis. Lines across the front represent a musical staff and the trumpets reaching out on either side of the NHL shield on the logo pay homage to the host team — the Blues — because trumpets are common instruments in the blues genre. Also, at the bottom of the patch lies the Gateway Arch, the most prominent part of the St. Louis skyline. As the NHL All-Star Game nears, anticipation grows not only for the event but for what the league’s top stars will look like on the ice.Fans around the league had that anticipation met with, well, mixed feelings Wednesday when the NHL revealed its jerseys for the 2020 All-Star Game in St. Louis. And to maybe toot their own horn (pun intended), a star noticeably sits underneath that arch. And while hockey teams do not adhere to the tradition of adding a star to their logos after winning league championships, as soccer teams do, it’s quite likely that this star is intended to bring light to the fact that the Blues are reigning NHL champions.Yes, stars have been in every NHL All-Star logo as of late because, after all, it is the All-Star game, but they are often fancied up to add some flair to the logo, whereas this one is very matter-of-fact. This one likely serves a double meaning, but maybe it’s just me.All-Star weekend kicks off Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. ET with the skills competition. The All-Star Game competition starts at 7 p.m. ET on Jan. 26. Click here for a full schedule of events.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments The Titans had trouble holding onto the football early. by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — Argonia-Attica’s offense sputtered a bit early, but the Titan defense picked up the slack and the team rolled to a 56-12 win over Sedan Friday in the season opener for both teams.The Titans have most of their team back from last year that put up video game like numbers on their way to the state championship game in 8-man football.The team did have to replace most of its offensive and defensive lines this year, so that was a concern for the coaches.“We knew they (Sedan) would be physical. We didn’t really know how we would match up with them,” said Titan co-coach Luke Greenwood. Even though the team struggled early on, he was very happy with the result. “We knew we had the athletes, we have good athletes,” he said. Greenwood credited the defense with stepping up and making plays when the offense was struggling.Sedan didn’t have much luck moving the ball in the second half.“That is what we talked about during the week,” Greenwood said. “If one area is struggling, another area has to step up.” Early on Argonia-Attica moved the ball but had trouble hanging on. In the first quarter the team threw an interception near the goal line. On the next play a nice completion was fumbled on the goal line. Both of those turnovers led to Sedan getting the ball on its own 1, but both times the Titan defense recorded a safety.Earlier in the quarter the teams traded touchdowns, but with the safeties, Argonia-Attica led 10-6 at the end of the first quarter.Sedan drove deep in to A&A territory in the second. A fumble and a bad snap ended that drive.Before halftime A&A got a 17-yard scoring run from Alec McDaniel and Jacob Norris scored from 14 yards out on a reverse to give the Titans a 26-6 lead at the half.From there it was all Argonia-Attica as the offense had found its groove and the defense never let up.Sedan’s only score from that point was a 78-yard kickoff return by Hunter Cummings.Argonia-Attica rolled up 196 yards of offense and held Sedan to 23 in the second half, while scoring 30 points.In the third quarter, Devon Newberry scored on runs of 30 and 24 yards. He had 81 yards on five carries in the second half alone, and had 85 for the game.In the final quarter, McDaniel passed 10 yards to Norris for a touchdown, and Mason McDaniel added a touchdown on a three yard run very late.McDaniel had 62 yards rushing on 18 carries, and completed seven of 11 passes for 76 yards.Argonia-Attical finished with 307 yards and held Sedan to 106.Argonia-Attica travels to Dexter to play another merged team the Spartans of Dexter-Cedar Vale next week.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
