first_imgQuique Setién will have to put the batteries quickly and more taking into account how this directive is spent, which has given clear signs of prioritizing the results over the game. And is that if we talk about the result, and more specifically, in The league, competition in which the Cantabrian coach will be released this Sunday against Granada (21 hours) in the Camp Nou, the role of Setién is to start to tremble. Barcelona has been nine consecutive days as leader, has finished the equator of the season with the honorary title of winter champion and is the most scoring team (49), with an abysmal difference from the second, Real Madrid (36). LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 15, 2020 In fact, since Valverde arrived in Barcelona two and a half seasons ago, Barcelona has become the real roller in the championship. One fact is enough to reflect the enormous superiority of the Blaugrana in LaLiga: of the 95 days that Valverde led the team was a leader in a total of 81. This overwhelming domain served him to win the last two titles several days in advance.Only fourteen times he did not lead the table: two (2017/18), three (2018/19) and nine (2019/20), being the Real Madrid the second team with the most leaders (6), ahead of Seville (5), while the rest (Athletic, Real society, Athletic Y Pomegranate) must conform to a leadership.There is no doubt that the pressure in this aspect for the new coach will be maximum, since it does not come to save a team in the lower area of ​​the table, but to consolidate the leadership of a club that since day eleven is at the top of the table, although it is true that in seven days he has shared the first position with Real Madrid.last_img read more

first_imgThe first phase of President David Granger’s medical treatment in Cuba was successfully completed and the Cuban specialists who are overseeing his medical care for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma have expressed their full satisfaction with his response to chemotherapy and his overall physical well-being.This is according to a release from the Ministry of the Presidency in which it was stated that based on expert evaluation of the President’s medical condition, the Cuban medical specialists have deemed it “no longer necessary in the treatment of the President.”President David GrangerHowever, he is expected to commence radiotherapy in April.On Friday, Cuban Foreign Affairs Minister, Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla paid a courtesy call on President Granger and congratulated him on the positive response to the medical treatment. The President’s chemotherapy commenced in November 2018 after he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of cancer which envelopes the lymphatic system. On October 30, 2018, the President and First Lady Sandra Granger travelled to Cuba for him to undergo medical tests after he had complained of feeling unwell. Days later, he was diagnosed with cancer. The President has since reduced his number of public engagements.According to WebMD, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is cancer that starts in your body’s lymph system. Lymphoma occurs when the lymph node cells or the lymphocytes begin to multiply uncontrollably, producing cancerous cells that have the abnormal capacity to invade other tissues throughout the body.According to, chemotherapy targets cells that grow and divide quickly, as cancer cells do. Unlike radiation or surgery, which target specific areas, chemo can work throughout the body. But it can also affect some fast-growing healthy cells like those of the skin, hair, intestines, and bone marrow.According to the website, some of the most common side effects of chemotherapy are fatigue, hair loss, easy bruising and bleeding, infection, anaemia (low red blood cell count), nausea and vomiting, appetite changes, and constipation.Radiation therapy treats cancer by using high-energy waves to kill tumor cells. The goal is to destroy or damage the cancer without hurting too many healthy cells. There’s no way to predict how radiation will affect you. You may have few or only mild side effects from your treatment; someone else may have a lot of problems or very severe ones.Early side effects, such as nausea and fatigue. Late side effects, such as lung or heart problems, may take years to show up and are often permanent when they do.The most common early side effects are fatigue and skin problems. You might get others, such as hair loss and nausea, depending on where you get radiation – WebMDlast_img read more

first_imgOne-third of the way through exhibition play, there are as many questions as answers about the rotation. Currently, only Duke and Snell look to be locked in, though it would be a surprise if Gorzelanny and Maholm aren’t in the rotation when the season starts April 2. Gorzelanny, out for a month late last season because of a sore elbow, has been ineffective so far with a 14.21 ERA in three appearances. He made his first start of the spring Sunday, allowing four runs in the first inning of a 9-8 loss to the Cincinnati Reds before settling down to pitch two scoreless innings. “As we go along here, it’s something we’ve got to be mindful of – you don’t want to dig that type of hole for yourself,” Tracy said. The wild card in the competition is McLeary, who was 2-0 in five games late last season. He has a 3.86 ERA in seven innings this spring and has impressed Tracy with his determination to win a job. “It’s why we stay here until the end of March,” he said. When camp opened, the top four starters appeared set with right-hander Ian Snell and left-handers Zach Duke, Paul Maholm and Tom Gorzelanny. Right-handers Tony Armas, who signed a $3.5 million contract for this season, and Shawn Chacon were expected to compete for the other job. SARASOTA, Fla. – Maybe that Pittsburgh Pirates starting rotation isn’t nearly as settled as it appeared to be when spring training opened last month. Manager Jim Tracy’s explanation for unforeseen developments, which include Marty McLeary greatly improving his chances for a spot in the starting rotation, is simple. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgThe woman declined to be interviewed on Friday. “I’m just trying to get over it. It’s still too new in my mind,” she said. Montes was scheduled to appear Friday at the North Justice Center in Fullerton for a pretrial hearing. He pleaded not guilty Sept. 28 to 21 charges including robbery, street terrorism, elder abuse, vehicle burglaries, reckless driving, possession of a controlled substance, fraudulent use of an access card and receiving stolen property, according to Farrah Emami, spokeswoman for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors also allege that Montes used a firearm during one of the robberies, that he committed the crimes for the benefit, and at the direction, of the Fullerton Tokers/Ward Street gang, and that he inflicted great bodily injury on a woman while driving recklessly. A La Habra man and reputed gang member allegedly broke into cars in church parking lots and robbed middle-aged women and seniors of their purses in Orange County. In one case, Fullerton police said Alejandro Sanchez Montes walked up to an 82-year-old woman and held his hand out as if to shake hands. When she offered her hand, the 26-year-old allegedly knocked her down, took her purse and fled in a waiting vehicle. She suffered scrapes and bruises in the Sept. 23 encounter at a Fullerton church parking lot. But officers said she jotted down a partial license plate number for the getaway car in the margin of her Bible. Three days later, she saw a police chase of robbery suspects on TV, recognized one of the men and called police. Montes is being held at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange without bail because of a probation hold. The armed robberies happened in Fullerton, Huntington Beach, La Habra and Santa Ana. Fullerton police spokeswoman Sgt. Linda King said a 62-year-old woman had her purse snatched on Aug. 27 in Santa Ana, a 44-year-old woman was robbed Sept. 9 in a Fullerton church parking lot and a 61-year-old woman fell prey to a purse-snatcher on Sept. 15 in Huntington Beach. The 82-year-old victim was robbed Sept. 23 in Fullerton and a fifth robbery is alleged on Sept. 25 but the criminal complaint did not give the age of the victim or where the incident took place. “He’s not picking on young ones,” King said. The car burglaries occurred Sept. 19 and 24. King said vehicles in a church parking lot on Brea Boulevard were broken into. Fullerton police arrested Montes and Jorge Diaz on Sept. 26 after a chase that ended when their silver Dodge Magnum ran a red light and hit three cars. An off-duty reserve officer with Fullerton police was driving one of the cars hit. King said Diaz, 36, of La Habra was booked on suspicion of parole violation and sent to Chino State Prison.

first_imgManager Lou Piniella brought the 1995 Seattle Mariners back after losing the first two games to win three straight from the Yankees. “It can be done,” Piniella said. “It would be nice to win three games in one day, but it’s not going to happen.” Strong pitching from starters Brandon Webb and Doug Davis and Arizona’s bullpen has stifled Chicago’s offense, especially the big hitters in its lineup. Now the Diamondbacks will turn to veteran Livan Hernandez, who 10 years ago was the MVP of the Florida Marlins’ NLCS and World Series victories. He also started Game 7 of the 2002 World Series for the San Francisco Giants against the Angels. So, bring it on. He’s been through loud and wild scenes during his career. “The stadium is going to be packed and crazy and people screaming,” said Hernandez, who hasn’t pitched in a game since Sept. 26. “It’s great for baseball. I love it. It’s something I like, see the people screaming.” In the two losses in Phoenix, the Cubs’ first four batters went 5-for-35 with 13 strikeouts. So while Piniella has taken heat for pulling Carlos Zambrano after six innings with the game tied at 1 in the opener and Ted Lilly was driven out early in Game 2, the Cubs’ bats also wilted in the desert. Alfonso Soriano is 2-for-10, Derrek Lee 2-for-8 and Aramis Ramirez 0-for-9. The trio has no RBIs or homers. Piniella’s advice is to go with the pitch. “It’s probably trying to overdo. … You don’t need to hit three home runs in one bat. They pitch away, hit the ball to right center,” Piniella said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
