first_imgThat appeared to most rile the players union. However, in his remarks to reporters Sunday, Manfred also said that MLB will use a pitch clock during spring training games. “Commissioner Manfred’s latest comments and his attempts to shift blame and distract from the main issues are unconstructive and misleading at best. Players’ eyes don’t deceive them, nor do fans’. … We’re operating in an environment in which an increasing number of clubs appear to be making little effort to improve their rosters, compete for a championship or justify the price of a ticket.”Statement from Executive Director Tony Clark: https://t.co/RS6Mvcx7Md pic.twitter.com/1uWDYa9pdI— MLBPA Communications (@MLBPA_News) February 18, 2019MLB has been criticized as multiple top-level free agents remain unsigned into mid-February, including stars Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. The Red Sox tallied 108 victories and won the World Series with MLB’s highest payroll last season.

At the same time, we have presented wide-ranging ideas that value substance over second and ensure the best players are on the field every day.”Manfred is scheduled to speak to reporters again Tuesday as part MLB’s Spring Training Media Day in Arizona. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred’s on Sunday said he rejects “the notion that (a team’s) payroll is a good measure” to determine that team’s effort or predict success.On Monday, the players union — in the context of another particularly slow-moving free-agent offseason — fired back with a statement by MLBPA executive director Tony Clark, who wrote, in part: MLB commissioner Rob Manfred addresses pitch clock, payroll concernslast_img read more

I would be a supportive hubby, will cook breakfast: Arjun

first_imgMumbai, Feb 15 (PTI) Actor Arjun Kapoor, who is playing a house-husband in his upcoming film “Ki and Ka”, has said that he would be a supportive husband in real life.The actor, playing a homemaker spouse of actress Kareena Kapoor who will be seen as a careerist woman, said housewives are often taken for granted and its time they should be valued.”The concept exists in front of us and we take them (housewives) for granted. The film deals with something important. People say you (house wife) sit at home. (But) a housewife doesnt (merely) sit at home, but takes care of the house. She does sacrifices, lets go off her dreams and aspirations to nurture us (children),” Arjun told reporters here at the trailer launch of the film.The “Gunday” actor wants men to see the film.”I would like a lot of men to see this film, hug them (their wives) and tell them how much they value them. Every human being wants to be valued and loved whether I can or not..one just needs to support the partner (sic).”I think no man or woman should dictate what he or she should do. It (the film) is just an opinion but these things do matter today. In my personal relation I would love, respect and be supportive to the girl. I would even make breakfast for her,” he added.The “Ishaqzaade” actor feels there is a change in the society as there are lot of women working today.advertisement”We do see women working around. I have seen more female journalists. There is a change. I think onus is on the media as well to educate people. We make entertaining films, we try to showcase things,” he said.Kapoor said, “We should be positive about the change than having a myopic view on it. We live in a fantastic country where we can make our choices and make most of it. Stop blaming other people”.In the trailer of “Ki and Ka”, the 30-year-old actor is seen cutting vegetables and doing other household chores.”I dont know much about cooking. It was during this film that I learned. I know bit about cooking. I took things for granted,” he said. (More) PTI KKP NSK DBS SRElast_img read more

They had already played out a 1-1 draw in the group stages, which was perhaps an indication of the most likely result when they met again in the showpiece. Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move HIGHLIGHTS | Relive Karpatalya’s dramatic @paddypower #WFC2018 World Football Cup final victory over Northern Cyprus thanks to @fc_video. pic.twitter.com/6yFvEk3yzW— CONIFA (@CONIFAOfficial) June 10, 2018Over the course of the World Football Cup, Karpatalja had proven themselves a superbly organised outfit, and in the first half they seemed completely at ease with their opponents, setting up to play on the counter with the tricky Gyorgyi Toma left to roam free up the pitch.Toma was a threatening presence throughout, albeit rarely given a genuine chance to express himself by a well-marshalled Northern Cypriot defence.The Hungarians’ approach was one they had replicated in most of their previous knockout games, and it proved effective once again. Northern Cyprus’ dangerous centre-forward Billy Mehmet was kept relatively under the thumb, but had the match’s best chance to open the scoring with a diving header at the back post but his effort bounced back off the bar.Chances, however, were at a premium, and both teams looked tired after six games in just over a week. The game headed inexorably to penalties.WINNERS!
