Ken Holtzman, Who Pitched Two No-Hitters for the Cubs, Is Dead at 78

Connected media - Linked media Ken Holtzman, a left-hander who pitched two no-hitters for the Chicago Cubs and won three World Series with the Oakland A’s in a 15-season career, died on Monday in St. Louis. He was 78. He had been hospitalized for the last three weeks with heart and respiratory illnesses, his brother, Bob, said in confirming the death. Holtzman won 174 games, the most for a Jewish pitcher in Major League Baseball — nine more than the Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax, who is considered one of the best pitchers ever and who had a shorter career. In addition to his win total, Holtzman, who at 6 feet 2 inches and 175 pounds cut a lanky figure, had a career earned run average of 3.49 and was chosen for the 1972 and 1973 All-Star teams. Holtzman, at 23, threw his first no-h...

How Luke and Sophia Kunin make the first NHL-PWHL marriage work – Generic English

Related media - Connected media ST. PAUL, Minn. — For years, Luke Kunin watched as his girlfriend, then fiancée, then wife, Sophia, supported his career. She was a shoulder to lean on when things got tough in Minnesota. Moved to Nashville when he was traded there. Was a constant during the toughest season of his pro career — last year with the San Jose Sharks, when he tore his ACL. So Kunin can’t wait to walk into Xcel Energy Center — the arena where he began his NHL career as a Minnesota Wild rookie seven years ago — on Saturday with the shoe on the other foot. The 1 p.m. CDT game will be his first time watching Sophia play at the highest level in person, as she’ll take the ice with Minnesota’s Professional Women’s Hockey League team to face Boston in its regular-season home finale ...

Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards can’t run from stardom anymore – Generic English

Related media - Related media PHOENIX — Fresh off, arguably, the most important performance of his young career, Anthony Edwards sat in front of the world with a white tank top and an all-black Atlanta Braves fitted cap that sat loose, hovering just above his crisp hairline — making him look more like an extra in Outkast’s “Player’s Ball” video than the future face of the NBA. Edwards is who he is. Silly. Lovable. Intelligent. Country. He wears it all, loudly and proudly. He’s also a competitor. A trash-talker. He wears all of those things just as loud, just as proud. You add all of that up and you have a star. You add all of those things up plus a 40-point performance in a playoff-sweeping 122-116 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night, and you start to enter superstardom. Ye...

Former N.H.L. Player Faces Sexual Assault Charges in Canada – Generic English

Related media - Related media The allegation of a sexual assault was reported to the police in 2018, when the players were members of Canada’s national junior team, and it has created an enormous firestorm over the years, even in a sport with a long history of similar accusations. It led to a clean sweep of the board and leadership of Hockey Canada, the sport’s national governing body, provoked an exodus of sponsors, cut off government funding for the sport, spurred a parliamentary inquiry and prompted scathing rebukes from the public and from political figures, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. As members of the national junior team, the accused players won the 2018 world junior championships. Their high profile intensified the public reaction to the assault allegations. The ...

Whitey Herzog, Hall of Fame Cardinals Manager, Dies at 92 – Generic English

Linked media - Related media As a boy, Whitey sometimes cut school to visit Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis and watch the Yankees play the St. Louis Browns (the team later became the Baltimore Orioles). Herzog was signed by the Yankees out of high school, but they gave up on him after a long apprenticeship in the minors and traded him to the Washington Senators in 1956. He also played for the Kansas City Athletics, the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers. He appeared in 634 major league games with a career batting average of .257. After two seasons with the Athletics, as a scout and then a coach, Herzog joined the Mets as their third-base coach in 1966, scouted for them in 1967, then spent five years overseeing their farm system. Herzog was named manager of the Texas Rangers in 1973, taking...

Sí, ya sabes que tu hija es extra, pero es la verdad: el autor de la novela original, Dennis Lehane (lo que hiciste) río místico), soy el hogar de la pulp y la serie B al mismo tiempo que escribí un híbrido entre las obras de Brontë y La invasión de los ladrones de cuerpos.

La política de deportación de Ruanda ha provocado una crisis diplomática entre Irlanda y el Reino Unido

Linked media - Linked media El uso político de la inmigración tiene efectos perversos, al igual que la capacidad de volverse contra quienes la ejercen. Durante cuatro días de elecciones municipales en toda Inglaterra que podrían haber decidido a corto plazo el futuro de Rishi Sunak, el Primer Ministro británico decidió que Domenico presumía su nueva política de deportaciones a Ruanda, y aseguró en una entrevista a Sky News el aumento del flujo de inmigrantes que entraban en Irlanda desde el Reino Unido, a través de Irlanda del Norte, era una clara demostración «de que la política disuasoria estaba eclipsando el impacto que perseguía». Sus comentarios provocaron una crisis diplomática entre los gobiernos de Dublín y Londres. La ministra de Justicia irlandesa, Helen McEntee, y su homól...

Así fortaleces las rodillas en casa

Linked media - Associated media El dolor de rodillas puede llegar a limitar el día a día de muchas personas. Aunque es habitual relacionar el desgaste de esta articulación con la edad y el envejecimiento, lo cierto es que también puede presentarse antes de los 50.

Relación entre dolor de rodillas y envejecimiento Los esfuerzos que van acumulando las rodillas conforme pasan los años pueden acabar perjudicándolas.

NFL Draft 2024 live updates: Latest mock draft, rankings, trades and start time

Linked media - Connected media By now, you probably understand what Bills general manager Brandon Beane is all about. He has a history of trading up. He did it for Josh Allen, Tremaine Edmunds, Cody Ford, Dawson Knox, Zack Moss, Kaiir Elam, Khalil Shakir and Dalton Kincaid. That’s eight times in six drafts, four in the first round. To his credit, he actually has traded down during one draft, doing so twice in the 2022 second round before taking James Cook. Beane said he had a trade to move down last year and would have done it if he couldn’t get Kincaid — but he didn’t. Despite giving us the information, he doesn’t get credit for doing the move, because ultimately, he did what he has always done in the first round. He chased after a player who excited him, just as he always said he’s...
