Possible Pirates trade chip Keone Kela placed on injured list

The Pirates announced Thursday that they’ve placed right-hander Keone Kela and infielder Colin Moran on the injured list. Kela heads to the 10-day IL with forearm tightness, while Moran is on the 7-day concussion list. Both moves are retroactive to Aug. 24. Righty Nick Mears and infielder Will Craig were recalled in a pair of corresponding moves. The IL placement for Kela significantly hampers the team’s ability to extract a meaningful return in a trade for the righty, who’d been the Pirates’ most obvious trade chip prior to Monday’s deadline. He can technically still be traded even while on the IL, but he won’t be entitled for activation […]

The first step in gambling better than your friends in the casino is to understand from the outset that you’re not going to figure out a sure thing. The number of people who are temperamentally able to hit the casinos are a tiny percentage indeed. And making money at poker is easier than making money at casino gambling. Sure, you could do it, but most people don’t want to do it badly enough. It would be easy to say that gambling in a casino doesn’t have much to do with money, but that would be obtuse. Let’s face it. When […]

Indians manager Terry Francona dealing with blood clotting issue

The Cleveland Indians may be without manager Terry Francona even longer than anticipated. Francona has already missed 15 matches with a gastrointestinal issue, and Chris Antonetti, the team’s president of baseball operations, disclosed Tuesday that the 61-year-old manager has also been dealing with blood clotting issues. Antonetti said doctors at the Cleveland Clinic inserted a stent last week to help Francona’s blood flow “around what was a clogged filter in his veins.” Francona is currently recovering in his downtown apartment and Antonetti said there is no timetable on when he’ll back. The Indians had ruled him out for at least this three-game […]

Texas Breeder Hangs His Dreams on Whiskey Echo

Whether due to luck or divine intervention, graded-placed winner Whiskey Echo seemed destined to become the first stallion Glynn Parent Jr. would stand at his 40-acre farm southwest of Houston. Parent had just started building a modest broodmare band and, after going through a breeding season of boarding bills and stud fees, decided owning a stallion might make sense for a homespun operation. He began his stallion prospect search in the $7,500-$10,000 claiming ranks at Lone Star Park but got the notion during his research to look in the $20,000-$30,000 price range, figuring the limited amount of racing offered because of the ongoing COVID-19 […]

Stephen Strasburg to have season-ending surgery

Stephen Strasburg’s season is over. The Washington Nationals transferred the star right-hander to the 60-day disabled list Saturday. Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Strasburg will undergo carpal tunnel surgery on Wednesday. Strasburg, last year’s World Series MVP, was first placed on the injured list Aug. 15 with carpal tunnel neuritis of the right hand. “Hopefully, surgery goes well,” Martinez stated. “The biggest thing is that surgery relieves anything he has, and he’s able to rehab and come back strong next spring training. Long-term goal, that’s what we’re hoping for.” Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo called it “a repetition injury” and he expects […]

Truth about hot numbers – Roulette

You can find numerous attitudes about the game of roulette among gamblers. Most roulette players do believe in hot numbers, and this post is meant to expose the truth about that phenomenon.
