Briefs

first_img June 1, 2006 Regular News Briefs BriefsTHE OCCASION WAS AN AWARDS luncheon in Tallahassee to show appreciation for employees and board members of the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. Florida Supreme Court Justice Fred Lewis was among the well-wishers: “I say this from the bottom of my heart and from all the justices at the court: How many ways can we say we love you? Because your function is so vitally important.. . . The discussions at our court are in pure admiration for not only all of you as staff, but those members of the board who volunteer so many hours to come from wherever they may come from in Florida to fulfill the objectives of your work. Believe me, although it may become tedious, as you go through these reports, as you look at these wiggly lines on what all these test results mean, there is a child in Florida that’s impacted by what you do. So it’s not a thankless job at all. We are very thankful for all of you.” The Brandi Cawthon Alvarado Award was presented to Joseph Figo. Merit awards and promotions were presented to Janey Stuart, director of finance and human resources, and Missy Gavagni, deputy executive director.

LEADING OFF: Cole goes for 21st in row, Tigers’ Mize debuts

first_img COMMENT WATCH US LIVE Associated Press Television News LIVE TV SUBSCRIBE TO US A look at what’s happening around the majors on WednesdayACE SEEKS BLACKJACKYankees ace Gerrit Cole can set an AL record by winning his 21st consecutive regular season start when New York hosts the AL East rival Rays. Cole’s 20-game run matches Roger Clemens for the best in AL history, and Hall of Famer Carl Hubbell holds the major league record at 24. Cole hasn’t lost a decision in the regular season since May 22, 2019, against the White Sox while with Houston.FRESH STRIPESThe Tigers will debut another prized pitching prospect when Casey Mize starts against the White Sox. A night after left-hander Tarik Skubal allowed four runs in two innings in his first big league appearance, Mize will try to do better. The right-hander was the first overall pick in the 2018 draft and helped form a dominant rotation at Double-A Erie with Skubal last year.NEW TEAM, NEW STARTMatt Harvey is set to make his debut for the Kansas City Royals, trying to resurrect a career that’s been filled with starts and stops for the former All-Star.The 31-year-old Harvey is scheduled to start the second game of a seven-inning doubleheader against Cincinnati at Kauffman Stadium. Once dominant with the Mets, Harvey did well enough for the Reds in 2018, but was 3-5 with a 7.09 ERA for the Angels last year.Harvey pitched in the minors for Oakland late last season and signed with the Royals last month.“It’s not strange. It’s more exciting than anything,” said Harvey, who pitched against the Royals for the New York Mets in the 2015 World Series.The Reds have been out of action since a player returned a positive test Friday night. They had home games against Pittsburgh called off Saturday and Sunday, then had Tuesday night’s game in Kansas City postponed and rescheduled as part of this doubleheader.STREAKINGCorey Seager and the Dodgers have won seven in a row and own the best record in the majors at 18-7. They sent the Mariners to their seventh straight loss, 2-1 Tuesday. The teams went straight from Dodger Stadium, where it was 102 degrees for the first pitch, to the airport for the two-hour flight to Seattle, where Los Angeles sends Julio Urías (2-0, 2.53) against Taijuan Walker (1-2, 4.05 ERA). … Alex Bregman and the Astros have won a season-high six straight after beating Colorado 2-1 at Muinute Maid Park. The clubs now open a series at Coors Field when Houston’s Framber Valdez (1-2, 1.90) opposes Ryan Castellani (0-0, 1.04).Image credits: AP center_img FOLLOW US First Published: 19th August, 2020 08:12 IST Last Updated: 19th August, 2020 08:12 IST LEADING OFF: Cole Goes For 21st In Row, Tigers’ Mize Debuts Yankees ace Gerrit Cole can set an AL record by winning his 21st consecutive regular season start when New York hosts the AL East rival Rays Written Bylast_img read more

Atletico Madrid president talks up return of Diego Costa

first_imgEnrique Cerezo has refused to rule out the possibility of Diego Costa one day returning to Atletico Madrid as “players go back sometimes”.The President appeared to close the door on the Chelsea striker last month, but he has since changed his stance in the wake of reports linking the player with a move back to the Vicente Calderon and Jackson Martinez heading the opposite way.“After what happened in Lisbon a couple of seasons ago ago, we’ve all set [the Champions League final] as a target to reach,” he told TVE.“Cholo [Simeone] will be here for as long as he wants. I think we have a coach who will manage us for a long time and become a very important part of the club’s history. [Costa] is now a Chelsea player and has to think about Chelsea, but there are things which happen in football and no-one knows why. Players go back sometimes.“[Antoine] Griezmann is enjoying his football here, in front of fans who love and admire him, living in Madrid and everything which comes with playing for Atletico Madrid.”OPINION This is interesting indeed. Taken in isolation, the bland statement that “players go back sometimes” would mean little, but in this context – with Cerezo talking candidly about his club’s plans for the future – it feels far more weighty than it otherwise would.We can also assume a fairly strong relationship between Atletico and Chelsea – as evidenced by Thibaut Courtois’s loan spell, for example – will make this move more likely. All that said, don’t expect anything to happen any time soon: Chelsea are still fighting for their lives, and losing a man who is their most potent goalscorer (once he recovers his form) is hardly the way to boost their hopes.–last_img read more
