I am hopeful it is sent to my desk, and I will sign it into law.“The magnitude of the addiction and overdose death epidemic in Pennsylvania is astounding, and a collaborative effort on the federal, state, and local levels is crucial. That is why the leadership that Senators Yaw and Wozniak have shown is integral to our efforts. I am hopeful to continue to find ways to improve and strengthen ABC-MAP, as well as work together to reach solutions to fight this public health emergency.”center_img June 07, 2016last_img read more

Juventus prepared to axe €50m-rated Costa

first_imgJuventus are reportedly ready to listen to offers for Douglas Costa, although it’s suggested that they are likely to have more success offloading him in a player exchange deal.

In 90 appearances for Juve, Costa has managed just nine goals and 18 assists, as while his pace and movement in the final third have been a real problem for opponents, he has been unable to make a decisive difference on a regular basis during his stint in Italy. That is seemingly going to result it in potentially coming to an end this summer, as Calciomercato report that Juventus have decided to listen to offers for the Brazilian international at the end of the season to get his wages off the books and to secure more flexibility to land their own targets.Advertisement However, it’s added that while he’s valued at €50m by the Bianconeri, he’s more likely to be successfully offloaded in an exchange deal as clubs may not be willing to splash out big fees due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the summer transfer window. Bayern, Man Utd, Man City and Paris Saint-Germain are all specifically mentioned as potentially interested parties, but time will tell if the pieces fall into place for a player swap to be agreed upon. Costa turns 30 later this year and has also suffered eight different injury setbacks since he joined Juventus, resulting in him missing 43 games. read also: Douglas Costa escapes car crash unhurt  With that in mind, it’s questionable as to whether the touted €50m valuation is realistic and fair, and in turn it could scupper the hopes of Juventus of using him in an exchange deal to not only offload him but also to land one of their preferred targets.

Dodgers say ‘extra rest’ led to choice of Hyun-Jin Ryu over Clayton Kershaw for NLDS opener

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies “It’s always easy to have Clayton on regular (rest) or have Clayton go 120 pitches or 125 pitches because he’s Clayton Kershaw. And he’s earned it. And he’s the best pitcher we have, and he’s shown it throughout his entire career,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.“The more responsible thing to the team and the organization is to do what’s right for the player and the team. And so it’s not always popular, but it’s something that we thought through a lot, and the decisions that I made throughout the year and the decisions we make on the roster reflect that. So regardless of how it plays out, we feel that this gives us the best chance to win in the first two games.”The deciding factor was being able to start each pitcher on extra rest (five days for both), Roberts said, and recognizing that “Game 1 is important, but so is Game 2.” The Dodgers started a pitcher on more than four days’ rest in 107 of 163 regular-season games.The Ryu-Kershaw move might be of more symbolic importance than strategic value. Kershaw will still be available to pitch an elimination game in Game 5 on regular rest if necessary – or start Game 1 of the next round on extra rest if the Dodgers eliminate the Braves early.“Well, everything is going to be on the table at that point in time,” Roberts said. “The only thing that’s guaranteed is the first three games. So if we get to that point, then we’ll have a discussion.” How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire PreviousAtlanta Braves warm up during baseball practice Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018, in Los Angeles for Thursday’s Game 1 of the team’s National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Hyun-Jin Ryu and Clayton Kershaw passed each other at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday – and in the rotation.“Yesterday when I came in to work out, I asked Kersh if he was going to start Game 1, and he told me I was going to start Game 1 and he was going to start Game 2,” Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu said Wednesday, admitting that he had some idea that might not be the case. “From that point on, I was more focused on making sure I could do well tomorrow. So there wasn’t really like a huge conversation between me and Kersh.”The Dodgers have given Kershaw the ball every time they could in a significant game for years now – a franchise-record eight consecutive Opening Day starts, Game 1 in eight of a possible 10 postseason series since 2009. The only two times he didn’t start in Game 1 were the 2013 and 2016 National League Championship Series because he had pitched in the closeout game of the previous round.This time, though, the Dodgers will go with Ryu in Game 1 against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday despite the fact that Kershaw will have the standard four days’ rest since his most recent start (Saturday in San Francisco). Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Kershaw did not talk to the media at Wednesday’s workout, but the decision couldn’t have been easy for him to accept.“Clayton’s been very good with accepting whatever we ask of him,” Roberts said. “Obviously, he wanted to pitch Game 1 and expected to, but after talking to him and explaining our thoughts, he accepted it and he just said he’ll be ready to go for the second game.”Ryu will be making his first postseason appearance since 2014 – before elbow and shoulder surgeries sidetracked him for most of two seasons. He said he was gratified just to be on the playoff roster.“I’m very happy that the team trusted me and I would like to say that I’m going to go full throttle from the very first pitch in the very first inning tomorrow, make sure that I get my job done as the starting pitcher and put the team in the position where it can win,” Ryu said through his interpreter.“I’m going to make sure that from the very first pitch I’m very focused and concentrated.”ON THE SIDELINESShortstop Corey Seager was at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday continuing his rehab from hip and elbow surgeries this year.Seager said he was “excited” recently when he was cleared to take his workouts onto an elliptical for the first time since surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip. He continues to progress from Tommy John surgery and is on track to start a throwing program at some point this month.Seager said he still expects to be ready to play on Opening Day next spring.BRAVES CHOICESBraves manager Brian Snitker said veteran right-hander Anibal Sanchez will start Game 2 against the Dodgers. But he has not named the remaining starters he will use in this series.“We’re kind of going to do as we’ve done in the past through the course of the year – just kind of wait and see how we get there,” he said of Game 3 in Atlanta.The Braves also have a decision to make on Dansby Swanson. The 24-year-old shortstop partially tore a ligament in his left hand and has not played since Sept. 25. It’s unlikely he makes the roster for the NLDS but the Braves have not ruled him out yet.“He’s still getting treatment,” Snitker said. “I’m not real optimistic right now. … The doctors are still at him and trying things today. But it’s still kind of a long shot.”Related Articleslast_img read more
