MLB 2019 preview: Predicting the NL’s division champs, pennant winner, award getters

first_img MLB 2019 preview: Five storylines to watch during the season But even with the parity in the league we are going to give our predictions for all of this year’s winners by division, pennant and awards.Here are those predictions. Related News The National League is about as balanced as it has been in the last decade.The Central is stacked, the East got better and the West is far from decided. MLB 2019 preview: Five bold predictions for the upcoming seasoncenter_img Central — Chicago CubsLast year, the Cubs were the first team to be a disappointment that won 95 games. OK, that’s not necessarily true, but Chicago’s season was indeed disappointing.But this year everyone is coming back, Kris Bryant and Yu Darvish will likely be healthier and a lot of players (Ian Happ, Willson Contreras) got bad second years out of their systems.We’re picking them to ride an underrated starting rotation to a division title this year as Milwaukee will likely take a slight step back and the Cardinals will take some wins away from the Brewers as well. The Reds will do the same thing as they got better too.East — Washington NationalsNo team is better with the subtraction of Bryce Harper. That is ludicrous. However, the Nationals added Patrick Corbin, still have a fantastic rotation with Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg and their lineup is solid from top to bottom.A bad season last year was an anomaly. This team is good. They’ll prove it this year.West — Colorado RockiesThe Rockies will ride their pitching rotation to this year’s division title. Yes, you read that right.Between Kyle Freeland, German Marquez and Antonio Senzatela the Rockies have a powerful, young rotation that could guide them for years to come.And oh yeah, they have the best third baseman in all of baseball in Nolan Arenado, added a steadying bat in the middle of the lineup in Daniel Murphy and David Dahl, Trevor Story, Charlie Blackmon and Ian Desmond fill out a talented lineup. That’s more than enough to win a division they lost in a one-game playoff to the aging Dodgers last season.Wild Cards — Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis CardinalsThis is as tough of a couple of picks as there could ever be because the argument can legitimately made that the Brewers, Cardinals, Pirates, Mets, Phillies, Braves, Diamondbacks and Dodgers could all earn one of the two wild-card spots.But our thinking here is simple: the Dodgers play in the weakest of the three divisions, and the Cardinals added Paul Goldschmidt. The Cards barely missed the playoffs last year, and if they add a pitcher at the deadline that could be the piece to push them over the top.NLCS pick — Cardinals vs. RockiesThe Rockies learned a lot in their playoff run last season and will hit better in the playoffs this time around. St. Louis will get a good second year from Jack Flaherty. Those two things will help them get to the NLCS and in that series Colorado will come away with the win to make it back to their first World Series since 2007.MVP — Paul Goldschmidt, CardinalsDespite finishing amongst the top MVP candidates in the National League five of the last six years, Goldschmidt has somehow never won the MVP. A big reason for that is no one pays attention to the Diamondbacks — unfortunately — and many believe Chase Field inflates numbers for hitters.Goldschmidt won’t have to worry about that this year as the Cardinals are always in the national spotlight and people won’t hold his ballpark against him in St. Louis. He will produce there and people will realize he is not a product of a ballpark and then go check his numbers and see he had a higher batting average and more homers away from Arizona.All of that and a playoff berth for the Cardinals will give him his first MVP award.Cy Young Winner — Max ScherzerHe had a legitimate argument to win the award last year even when Jacob deGrom had an all-time season. He’ll anchor the best rotation in the NL and win the award for the third time in the last four years and fourth time in his career.Rookie of the Year — Nick Senzel, RedsNick Senzel has several things going for him: one, he is an incredibly talented player, two, the Reds added several good hitters to an already good lineup with Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp so he’ll have more protection when he is called up, and three, Great American Ballpark is a hitter’s haven. The only question is how long it will take for Senzel to get to MLB. If he is on the team from the start of the year, .290 with 20 homers and 80 RBIs is not out of the question. That got Miguel Andujar serious consideration for a win in the AL last year. Senzel will get it if he gets there as well.Manager of the Year — Torey Lovullo, DiamondbacksThe perception of the Diamondbacks is they will be bad this year after losing Goldschmidt and A.J. Pollock. Losing a team’s two best players is a recipe for regression. So any good success for Arizona will mean they will exceed expectations and that is how a manager wins Manager of the Year.The Diamondbacks are not bad despite the perception. Zack Greinke is good, as is Robbie Ray and Zack Godley. And the lineup is still pretty solid. If Arizona wins 86 or 87 games and competes for a wild-card spot, Lovullo will be in the conversation for Manager of the Year.last_img read more

U.K. Police Will Use Twitter to React to Protestors

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts mike melanson A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditcenter_img Tags:#Government#social networks#twitter#web While some countries aim to stop revolution by cutting off access to services like Twitter and Facebook, others try to turn social media use on its ear and use these services to monitor its population. Late last month, the Egypt erupted in revolution and the government quickly shut off all social media, before shutting down the Internet entirely. China has taken a similar stance, banning sites like Twitter and Facebook for long periods of time, as an attempt to prevent protests, among other things.The U.K., on the other hand, has taken this opposite route. According to a story in The Associated Press today, police in the U.K. will use social media sites to keep track of protestors and respond accordingly.A report from a report by Britain’s police inspection body called for authorities to stem the large number of protests through monitoring of social media sites:Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of the Constabulary said police forces would have to focus on speed and communication as demonstrators turn to Internet sites such as Twitter to coordinate their actions.“Large numbers of protesters can be organized in hours and change their focus in minutes through the use of social media and mobile phones,” the report said. “Those responsible for commanding events must plan with this adaptability in mind.”The report singled out UK Uncut, a protest group organized quickly by Twitter users upset at the government’s plans to slash public spending and perceived tax avoidance by major British companies. The group has used social-networking sites to help coordinate their actions; the tools include a live mapping service intended to help protesters dodge police cordons.While some police departments have shown that they don’t know how to use Twitter, the Greater Manchester police force – one of the largest in the U.K. – led a Twitter experiment last fall wherein it tweeted every single call it received over 24 hours. As the experiment ran into rate limit issues (the number of Tweets one account can make in a certain period of time, to summarize it simply), it began creating secondary and tertiary accounts. It then strung everything together using hashtags.All that is to say, it looks like the U.K. police force may have the know-how. It also has the right idea if looking to prevent and quickly react to protestors’ moves is the name of the game. Despite Egypt’s best efforts to censor its populace, many found ways to communicate nonetheless. Is it better for a government that wants control to push communication from out in the open into secret, unmonitored channels? Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationlast_img read more

I am convinced we will go through to the next round and we must always believe in what we’re doing. We should’ve finished the game earlier.“It’s also fair to say the referee should not have awarded that penalty. If we’d gone 2-0 up, we would not have had these issues. We’ve got to keep our heads up, as on Sunday there is an important game against Parma.“These two defeats with Cluj and SPAL are very disappointing, because we need to be more effective in attack and kill games off when we’re in control.“We have to analyse why we keep running out of steam in the second half. This was basically a photocopy of the match against SPAL, despite the fact we’ve worked on those errors over the last three days.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
