Related TopicsCarlos Carrasco Carrasco pitched four innings on Saturday in Double-A Akron, allowing one earned run on seven hits, issued one walk and struck out six batters. The Indians have had stellar starting pitching, for the most part, from Corey Kluber, Danny Salazar, and Josh Tomlin; but the rest of the rotation, which has consisted of Trevor Bauer, Cody Anderson, and Mike Clevinger, has had its ups and downs.When Carrasco returns, the most likely candidate to return to Triple-A would be Clevinger, but if Bauer’s struggles persist, it’s possible we see Anderson and Clevinger back in Cleveland to start down the road this season.

#UWFWBBinDR – Pensacola Blog #8

first_imgToday is Monday. The beginning of our second week on campus. We all knew what to expect after catching a slight break over the weekend, which is three practices today. It’s been a rough few days for me. I’ve been dealing with inflammation in my knee, which is resulting in a tremendous amount of pain. As the day is about to get started with an early morning weight session, I have many different thoughts running through my mind.  Can I really go hard today? Can I put this injury aside just for a couple more practices? Can I push through? My aspect on the whole day changed when Coach Rob, our strength and conditioning coach, gave me a little “pep” talk about the pain I’ve been dealing with. During weights, there were some exercises I wasn’t able to do but that didn’t stop me from cheering on my teammates and finishing the exercises that I could do. MONDAY, AUGUST 8 – Day 8Key phrase: Grinding it out! Today we had the vertical jump test which was really interesting to watch. While watching, I was also wishing that I didn’t have this injury because I wanted to see what the outcome of my vertical test might have been and where it would have compared with the rest of the team. One exercise I was able to do was front squats. I’ve done front squats in the past and have a pretty good technique but since I’m a newcomer to the team, Coach Rob wanted to monitor me a little more closely. After weights, I was proud of myself that I had gotten through one practice. Just two more to go! I wasn’t the only player thinking this today. Sometimes your mind has to will your body into doing things that your body doesn’t want to do. Our first basketball practice went really well. We learned new plays, did a lot of team drills, and continued our defensive drills. My favorite part of practice is actually going over defense because of Coach Quick. She makes the drills interesting and switches it up often. My favorite part of the final practice was the scrimmage. It was very competitive and I could tell that everyone was enjoying it. Even on a swollen and painful knee, I enjoyed playing at least twenty-five minutes. If I could choose the “MVP” of the scrimmage, it would be Katie O’Neal. She came out there on fire from the three-point line. She hit at least six straight from behind the arch. I’m looking forward to the Dominican Republic trip because I know the Argos will do well. We’ve been grinding out our tough days.– Junior G Shami GoodmanPrint Friendly Version As the 2016-17 academic year is just weeks away, the UWF women’s basketball team will have the opportunity to embark on an 8-day foreign trip to the Dominican Republic, where they will play against some of the top competition in the country, in addition to learning about the region’s history and clulture, and help with community service projects at area schools and orphanages.Here’s the seventh entry in a daily blog penned by the student-athletes, coaches and staff who will make the trip from August 11-18. Prior to that, the NCAA allows teams to have 10 days or practice and preparations for the trip. When it came time for the last practice of the day, I started to second-guess myself. I questioned whether I should take it a little light or go hard. I’m not the type of person who likes to sit out. When I have to sit out, I feel like I’m being left behind and that everyone is getting better but me. So taking it light was definitely not the option for me. As I laced my shoes up all I was thinking about it is GRINDING IT OUT!last_img read more

Maskapai Eropa Kurangi Pekerja, Amerika Serikat Bersiap Menyusul

first_imgDirangkum KabarPenumpang.com dari cnn.com (1/5/2020), Ryanair, Lufthansa, British Airways dan Air France bahkan bisa mengurangi 32 ribu pekerjaan di antara mereka karena mengecilkan bisnis untuk memperhitungkan industri yang membutuhkan waktu bertahun-tahun untuk pulih dari pandemi. Tak hanya itu mungkin lebih banyak lagi maskapai yang akan mengikuti jejak para maskapai top tersebut.“Kami saat ini menghadapi tantangan terbesar dalam sejarah kami baru-baru ini. Kami berjuang untuk masa depan perusahaan ini dan masa depan sekitar 130.000 karyawan Grup Lufthansa,” kata CEO Lufthansa, Carsten Spohr.Spohr mengatakan, Lufthansa Group telah menempatkan lebih dari 80 ribu stafnya pada pengurangan jam kerja dan jadwal penerbangannya “kembali ke masa” ke level yang tidak terlihat sejak 1955, dengan tiga ribu penerbangan hariannya dibatalkan dan 92 persen armadanya di darat.“Itu sangat pahit, dahsyat dan menyakitkan,” tambahnya.Brian Strutton, sekretaris jenderal Asosiasi Maskapai Penerbangan Inggris mengatakan, dengan praktis tidak ada perjalanan internasional, dan tidak ada kejelasan tentang kapan permintaan akan kembali, hampir tidak mungkin untuk melebih-lebihkan krisis keuangan yang dihadapi maskapai penerbangan. Pekerja penerbangan menghadapi “tsunami (gelombang) kehilangan pekerjaan.“Tanpa bantuan dari pemerintah, industri “akan hancur,” tambahnya.Peringatannya menyusul satu-dua pukulan dari British Airways, yang mengatakan Selasa mungkin harus memangkas lebih dari seperempat tenaga kerjanya, dan Ryanair, yang mengumumkan tiga ribu pekerjanya di PHK sebelumnya pada hari Jumat.“Apa yang kami hadapi sebagai maskapai penerbangan … adalah bahwa tidak ada yang ‘normal’ lagi. Skala tantangan ini membutuhkan perubahan besar sehingga kami berada dalam posisi kompetitif dan tangguh … untuk menahan penurunan permintaan pelanggan dalam jangka panjang,” kata CEO British Airways Alex Cruz.Pendapatan penumpang maskapai global diperkirakan turun sebanyak 55 persen tahun ini, atau sekitar $314 miliar, menurut Asosiasi Transportasi Udara Internasional. Beberapa maskapai besar di Eropa dan Amerika Serikat sudah mencari dana talangan pemerintah.Lufthansa, yang memiliki operator di Jerman, Swiss, Austria dan Belgia, sedang dalam “pembicaraan intensif” dengan pemerintah Jerman tentang dukungan keuangan, kata Spohr. Perusahaan telah menerima bantuan dari pemerintah Swiss dan sedang dalam negosiasi dengan pemerintah di Austria dan Belgia.“Masa depan Lufthansa saat ini sedang diputuskan. Pertanyaannya adalah apakah kita dapat menghindari kebangkrutan dengan dukungan pemerintah dari empat negara asal kita,” kata Spohr.Ryanair pada hari Jumat mengatakan pihaknya memperkirakan bahwa permintaan dan harga penumpang tidak akan pulih sampai setidaknya musim panas 2022. Spohr mengatakan itu bisa memakan waktu lebih lama, sampai 2023, untuk permintaan global untuk menemukan “keseimbangan baru.” Ternyata peringatan dari maskapai Eropa tidak menjadi pertanda baik bagi saingan mereka di Amerika Serikat, yang sudah melaporkan kerugian miliaran dolar untuk kuartal pertama.Meskipun maskapai AS tidak diizinkan menerapkan PHK apa pun sebagai syarat paket bailout $25 miliar mereka, larangan ini hanya berlaku hingga 30 September. Sehingga sektor penerbangan diatur untuk secara signifikan lebih kecil selama beberapa tahun, PHK besar-besaran di antara operator AS tampaknya tak terhindarkan.Sudah, sekitar 100 ribu karyawan di empat maskapai besar saja American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta dan Southwest telah sepakat untuk melakukan pemotongan gaji atau cuti yang tidak dibayar, selama sembilan bulan.Baca juga: Cegah Virus Corona di Kabin, Inilah Sejumlah Langkah yang Dilakukan Maskapai Penerbangan“Kami memang akan, terlepas dari di mana permintaan, memasuki musim gugur dengan lebih banyak anggota tim daripada yang kami miliki untuk bekerja,” kata CEO American Airlines Doug Parker.“Jika permintaan tetap berkurang secara signifikan pada tanggal 1 Oktober, kami tidak akan mampu menanggung krisis ini tanpa menerapkan beberapa tindakan yang lebih sulit dan menyakitkan,” tambah CEO United Airlines Scott Kirby dengan merujuk pada “cuti tak disengaja.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedMeski Didera Badai Covid-19, Inilah Empat Maskapai Anti Bangkrut!

PREVIEW: Indians look to bounce back in home opener against Royals

first_imgCLEVELAND– Happy home opener Tribe fans! Today the Cleveland Indians (2-4) kick off a 10-game homestand with the first game in a three-game series against the Kansas City Royals (1-3).Time: 4:10 p.m. ETStarting Pitchers: CLE Carlos Carrasco (1-0, 7.94) vs. KC Danny Duffy (0-1, 11.25)TV Channel:  SportsTime OhioOnline Stream: MLB.TVRadio: WTAM 1100; Indians Radio NetworkTerry Francona on how special opening day is #Indians pic.twitter.com/CYyZPqG6HB— Matt Loede (@MattLoede) April 6, 20181. Paging Dr. SmoothIn case you missed it, Michael Brantley was activated earlier Friday, while Tyler Naquin was optioned to Triple-A Columbus.Brantley appeared in three spring training games, going 4-of-10 at the plate with a home run and two RBIs. During the offseason, Brantley had surgery to stabilize ligaments in his right ankle, following an injury he suffered on Aug. 8.Brantley says he’s currently focused on taking things one game at a time.“I feel great right now as we speak, and that’s all that matters,” he said pregame. “One day at a time. I understand that, I’ve been banged up for the last couple of years, but at the same time I’m as focused as ever.”Brantley has appeared in 101 games combined in 2016 and 2017, and the club picked up his team option for the 2018 season right after the end of the 2017 campaign.“He means so much to what we’re doing,” Indians manager Terry Francona said pregame. “Nobody has a crystal ball. You don’t know who’s going to get hits or not, but just his being and what he means to everybody will really be helpful.”2. Cookie on the moundCarlos Carrasco is looking for his second win of the 2018 season. If he does pick up the W, he will be just the first Indians pitcher to record a win in the home opener since CC Sabathia did so in 2007.The odds are in Cookie’s favor however, as he has won each of his previous seven decision, a career best winning streak.His first start of the season came on March 31 against the Seattle Mariners, when he got torched for five runs over five and two-thirds innings. The Tribe rallied to beat the Mariners, 6-5 in that game giving him the W. This is also the second straight home opener Carrasco will start, as he recorded a no-decision in Cleveland’s 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox last season.“It’s nice to hand him the ball,” Francona said. “He’s earned so much of what he has. … It’s fun to watch guys develop into being really good.”3. Run supportThe Indians have not gotten off to the hottest offensive start. They currently rank 29th in the league in hits (33-of-205), and are 23rd in runs scored with 21.Look no further than Corey Kluber’s starts for the best examples of this, as the Tribe ace has pitched 15.0 innings and allowed just four runs, but currently has an 0-1 record after picking up a no-decision in Wednesday’s game against he Angels.If the Tribe can get the bats going today, a win should be in their sights.

Players must relish Championship challenge – Johnson

first_imgCity continue to find themselves in a fight for the play-offs and remain only one point behind sixth-placed Middlesbrough.They take on league strugglers Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday (March 10, 3pm kick-off) who have endured a tough season to date.The Brewers sit 23rd in the Sky Bet Championship, with only seven league wins all season.However, City know well the dogged performances of those further down the table, meaning they won’t expect an easy ride on Saturday afternoon.The match comes off the back of defeat to Preston North End but Johnson wants his players to show the same fight and football they displayed on Tuesday night, while eradicating the errors. The City head coach told BCTV: “You can never guarantee the win, the performance is what is important and I thought our performance against Preston was very good.”In the second half we were fantastic, what we can’t legislate for however, are the individual errors which led to the goals we conceded. Sometimes that’s the by-product of having a young group: they make mistakes and we have to make sure we score more goals.”We had five unbelievable chances to kill the game off, even when we were 1-0 down.”Preston are a very good side and we have to take that into account. No game is easy, we have another on Saturday and I’ll take playing the way we have played in the last two games right now.”last_img read more
