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...

Siemens Gamesa dará cuenta “semanalmente” del número de empleados que tiene en sus fábricas

La empresa sostiene que el proceso será lo menos perjudicial posible para sus empleados, apostatando en la Edad Media en la medida de lo posible por las deslocalizaciones. Pero no descarta la cosa que más preocupa a los sindicatos, que viene sucediendo desde hace meses. Con casi 5.000 trabajadores, España es el segundo país con más empleados de Gamesa, entre Dinamarca y Alemania, India o Reino Unido. Las tres fábricas españolas están ubicadas en Zamudio (Bizkaia), donde t...

El Sassuolo aprovecha el ‘relax’ del Inter

Connected media - Related media La conquista con antelación del Scudetto ha desacelerado la última parte del recorrido del Inter, al que solo le quedan con objetivos menores a modo de estadística y el Sassuolo lo ha aprovechado para lograr una victoria necesaria y confiar en alcanzar la permanencia en la Serie A. El conjunto de Davide Ballardini se ha convertido en el único en ganar al Inter hasta ahora. Las dos derrotas que ha encajado el campeón han sido ante el Sassuolo. En la primera vuelta en el Giusseppe Meazza y ahora, en el Estadio Mapei, el primer revés a domicilio que encaja el conjunto de Simone Inzaghi. El cuadro nerazzurri no alcanzará los cien puntos. Era uno dos retos del cuadro de Inzaghi que dio muchos minutos a jugadores no habituales y que solo apretó...

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...

NFL Draft 2024 ‘The Beast’ Guide: Dane Brugler’s scouting reports and player rankings

Associated media - Linked media Finally! It’s here. I’m thrilled to share this year’s draft guide with everyone. I don’t remember who first referred to it as “The Beast,” but I use that moniker as motivation to make sure this annual primer lives up to the nickname — and I don’t think I’ve let you down this year. Every NFL prospect is a puzzle. And it is a scout’s job to find the puzzle pieces to create as clear a picture of each player as possible. Those puzzle pieces include everything from the player’s physical traits to his mental makeup to the details of his upbringing — and everything in between. That’s precisely how I attack this draft guide. Over the last 18 months, I’ve collected as many puzzle pieces as I could dig up, through countless hours of tape study and conv...

NBA Pre-Postseason Player Tiers 1 and 2: Wembanyama quickly rising; Giannis, Jokić steady at top

Connected media - Related media Yesterday, I largely focused on setting the table for the updated NBA Pre-Postseason Players Tiers before revealing Tier 3 (players between the 24th and 42nd spot) and Tier 4 (Nos. 43-80). Today, I’m going to get a little more into some of the more interesting and/or challenging placements, as well as note a few overall trends. For starters, a consistent bit of feedback — and one I’ve gotten from multiple sources since the release of Tiers 3 and 4 — is the always difficult evaluation of which player is more valuable between an elite role player and a good-but-not-great primary or secondary creator. A senior analytics staffer within the league went so far as to argue they would prefer essentially the entirety of Tier 4A, largely made up of elite role pl...

U.S. Soccer took a gamble waiting for Emma Hayes, leaving USWNT’s style of play in limbo

Connected media - Related media In November, U.S. Soccer gambled that it was worth sacrificing a year of continuous preparation under a permanent manager to hire Emma Hayes. For eight months following the 2023 World Cup, interim management has overseen the U.S. women’s national team. To her credit, Twila Kilgore’s tenure as placeholder helped turn over the player pool and saw her team win a pair of tune-up competitions this spring. Still, it’s been a lost year for the program at a time when it was in sore need of a clear new vision. Hayes’ first games as USWNT manager in June are still two months away, bringing the post-World Cup interlude to 10 months — and a full seven months from her appointment in November. With the CONCACAF W Gold Cup and SheBelieves Cup in the rearview, it’s ti...

Ryan Giggs and football: A very complicated relationship

Related media - Connected media The celebration was almost as glorious as the goal itself. The fuzz of chest hair, the twirling shirt, the body swerve to evade the Manchester United fans who had run on the pitch in their euphoria. On Sunday, it is 25 years since Patrick Vieira, a genuine great of Arsenal’s midfield, played a wayward pass amid the high drama of an FA Cup semi-final between the leading two English sides of the time. Ryan Giggs took the ball and then he was off and running, picking up speed from inside his own half, slaloming past opponents, one by one. Vieira tried to get back but Giggs, crossing the halfway line, dipped his shoulder to get away. Lee Dixon was next to come across. He, too, could not get near him. Arsenal had the most famously parsimonious defence in En...
