Seattle Mariners LHP James Paxton to have season-ending elbow surgery

James Paxton’s first season back with the Seattle Mariners has come to an unexpected end, as the left-hander will undergo season-ending surgery, manager Scott Servais stated last Tuesday. Servais said Paxton will have surgery on his left elbow, but did not say Tommy John. Paxton, 32, went on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a forearm strain in his pitching arm after leaving his first start of the season in the second inning after 24 pitches. Paxton was 41-26 with a 3.42 ERA for the Mariners from 2013 to 2018, striking out 617 and walking 168 in 582⅓ innings. He was traded […]

Land-Based vs. Online Casinos – Which is the Better Bet?

Are online casino websites winning the battle against the traditional land-based alternative? It’s hard to tell. Both online casinos and land-based establishments have significant advantages weighing in their favor. At the same time, there are features of both that many players consider worth improving. The iGaming industry has brought a whole new dimension into the casino world and keeps expanding it with new platforms and cutting-edge technologies. Yet, it can hardly mirror the experience of a land-based casino, can it? On the other hand, even though land-based gambling opportunities are more widely available now than before, many people prefer to […]

Ryu sharp as Blue Jays top Yankees

Hyun Jin Ryu cruised into the seventh inning, Marcus Semien and Rowdy Tellez homered, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees 7-3 on Tuesday night. Ryu (1-1) permitted only an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven and limiting the Yankees to four hits and a walk. The Blue Jays ace retired 12 in a row after DJ LeMahieu had a leadoff infield single in the first. “Vintage Ryu,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said. “When he takes the mound, we know we have a good chance to win. Ryu threw 68 of 95 pitches for strikes. “The way it plays during the game, I see which […]

2 contenders out of Ky. Derby field; 3 more in question

Even though the Kentucky Derby preps are done, the field is still not fully set. While undefeated Blue Grass Stakes (G2) winner Essential Quality leads a list of virtually certain starters, connections for no fewer than five horses left the door open to turning down invitations. An updated Kentucky Derby leaderboard released by Churchill Downs Monday afternoon specifies that neither Weyburn nor Proxy will be in the Derby starting gate. Horse Racing Nation reported earlier Monday that Weyburn was unlikely for the race after finishing fourth in the Wood Memorial (G2) last weekend. According to the new leaderboard, he is pointed to the May 8 Peter Pan […]

Bullpen shines as Padres blank Rangers for 3-game sweep

Trent Grisham and Manny Machado homered, Craig Stammen led a parade of six effective San Diego relievers after starter Adrian Morejon left early with an injury, and the Padres beat the Texas Rangers 2-0 on Sunday for a three-game sweep. Grisham pulled a 1-0 fastball into the right-field stands off Mike Foltynewicz (0-2), who had retired the first nine batters. Machado hammered a 2-2 changeup off Ian Kennedy deep down the left-field line leading off the ninth. “The way we pitched and played defense, we battled at the plate, got the big one from Grish, and then it’s so nice to get that extra add-on,” Padres manager Jayce Tingler said. “Just a great […]

Lynn pitches 1st shutout of season, White Sox top Royals 6-0

There wasn’t much doubt Lance Lynn would go back out to finish this one. Manager Tony La Russa turned to him and asked how he was feeling. “He looked at me and said, ‘Are you good?’” Lynn said. “I said, ‘I’m gonna finish it. Does that sound good?’ He goes, ‘Sounds good.’ And that was pretty much it.” Lynn pitched a five-hitter for the first complete game and shutout in the major leagues this season, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 6-0 on a rainy Thursday. Yermín Mercedes kept up his scorching start with a 485-foot homer. Yoán Moncada went deep, and the White […]

The practice of playing casino games online or at traditional casinos has become an integral part of daily living for some and an occasional hobby for others. Some of these players have made it a thing to simply have fun and keep it going and occasionally cash out if luck shines on them. Others now see online gaming as their business, which involves their constant attention. The latter set of players have also had to bear the brunt of ‘bad days’ in online casino gaming. If you are conversant with casino games, you would have understood that most players hardly […]

San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. suffers partial shoulder dislocation on hard swing, will undergo MRI

Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. suffered another injury to his troublesome left shoulder on a hard swing Monday and left San Diego’s loss to the San Francisco Giants. The Padres declared that Tatis exited because of a shoulder subluxation, which is a partial dislocation of the joint, and will undergo an MRI on Tuesday. Padres manager Jayce Tingler told reporters that Tatis has experienced minor dislocations in the past but said that Monday’s incident was the most pain he’s ever seen Tatis in. Tingler also acknowledged that the nagging shoulder issue may have been bothering Tatis “more than we realized.” Tatis crumpled […]

Gamine starts her 2021 campaign with easy win in Las Flores

In her first race since she was crowned the female sprint champion of 2020, Gamine looked like she was primed to pull off a repeat. Racing for the first time without Lasix, she was an easy, 5 1/4-length winner versus only three rivals in the $100,000 Las Flores Stakes (G3) on another sun-splashed spring day at Santa Anita. Carrying her regular rider John Velázquez as part of a career-high 124 pounds, Gamine (1-9) led from gate to wire and was never pressed. “She came back so good,” Velázquez said. “She felt as good as last year. She does everything so effortlessly. Everything she does […]
