Mays makes pitch to fill the fifth spot

first_imgThus, five games in, the Dodgers are no closer to naming a fifth starter than they were when they arrived here almost three weeks ago. And manager Grady Little said they might not name one until the day they leave more than three weeks hence. “That decision could come right down to the end,” Little said. Mays, a pitcher who won 17 games for Minnesota in 2001, wasn’t believed to be even a serious candidate until Little identified him as one about a week ago. Mays missed all of 2004 after Tommy John surgery, then struggled with the Twins in 2005 before leaving as a free agent for Kansas City. When those struggles continued – he was 0-4 with a 10.27 ERA when the Royals released him last May – Mays briefly found himself unemployed until Cincinnati came calling three days later, albeit with a minor-league contract. That was when fate stepped in. Actually, it already had stepped in three months before. When the Reds were undergoing routine physicals at the start of spring training, pitching coach Vern Ruhle had been found to have multiple myeloma. The cancer put him out of commission for the season and, less than a year later, took his life. Ruhle’s unexpected absence created a domino effect in the organization in which bullpen coach Tom Hume became the pitching coach, Triple-A Louisville pitching coach Lee Tunnell became the big-league bullpen coach, and Single-A Sarasota pitching coach and former Dodgers pitcher Ted Power went to Triple-A. Upon signing with the Reds, Mays was immediately assigned to Louisville. It was there that he first met Power, whom he now credits with turning his career around. Furcal out Shortstop Rafael Furcal was out of action and will remain so for at least another couple of days because of discomfort in his right shoulder. “Anytime a player is in the training room, it’s a little bit of a worry,” Little said. “But he is getting better and better each day. It’s probably a two- or three-day process.” Saito throws Closer Takashi Saito, who has been on a regular throwing program all spring but has been limited in running because of a strained right calf, threw a brief simulated game on Sunday and will make his Grapefruit League debut on Wednesday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He wound up with two shutout innings in which he faced the minimum, gave up one hit, started a double play with a nice defensive grab and struck out two batters. He finished with a flourish, freezing Ryan Langerhans for a called third strike. Meanwhile, in Viera, Brett Tomko also was staking a claim to the fifth spot with two shutout innings of his own in a 6-2 loss to Washington. center_img VERO BEACH, Fla. – It is a long way from the career bottoming-out Joe Mays went through less than a year ago to where he finds himself now, and it is even farther to where Mays hopes to find himself in a few weeks. But the veteran right-hander took an encouraging next step on Sunday in his Grapefruit League debut for the Dodgers. Mays, in camp on a minor-league contract and one of several candidates for the vacant fifth spot in the rotation, came on in relief of Derek Lowe to begin the third inning of what became a 4-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves. last_img read more

Sanity must prevail on disclosure issue

first_imgLOS Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Police Chief William Bratton are asking for cooler heads to prevail as officers threaten to quit their gang and narcotics details if they are forced to sign financial statements as part of their anti-gang work. Yet what’s needed is not for cooler heads to prevail, but saner heads. The disclosure is part of the federal consent decree that was put into effect as a result of the Rampart Division scandal, when several anti-gang officers were accused of framing and assaulting gang members; and several officers were convicted. More than 600 officers are affected by this ill-considered provision of the decree, and if they go through with their threat to transfer to other duties, we could see a lot more traffic cops on the streets, which might ease traffic congestion, but certainly won’t help eradicate the gangs. According to Bob Baker, president of the Police Protective League, “If an officer fills it out, it becomes part of his record and can be subpoenaed in court.” This is a grave worry for any officer working gang or narco details. “I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want some gang member having access to my bank account or Social Security number,” Baker added. As Councilman Dennis Zine, a retired LAPD officer and former PPL president, put it: “After Rampart, the city disbanded the gang units, which led to an upsurge in violence. We don’t want to see that repeated. We had complete chaos and that’s why we have so many gang problems now.” L.A. is the only city that has a financial-disclosure caveat for its police officers, and there hasn’t been a police department or any other enterprise that hasn’t had its share of corrupt employees – no mater how rigorously they are screened. If saner heads prevail, they can simply go back to good old-fashioned police work and investigate when suspicion of a police officer gone bad arises. Investigate away and see if he’s a cop on the take or … has a wife who writes best-selling salacious novels or inherited his mega-wealthy Uncle Harry’s estate. Sandy Sand is a resident of West Hills and former editor of the Tolucan and reporter for the San Fernando Valley Chronicle.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! U.S. District Judge Gary Feess, who presides over the decree, should do a big rethink here. He has already turned down a request to lift the requirement, and is now considering a compromise that would instead allow for random audits of gang-unit officers. Whose side is Feess on? The gangbangers or the cops who are trying to keep the streets safe? Taking the side of the government – and exhibiting a most convenient memory – is former police chief and current City Councilman Bernard Parks, even though he opposed the consent decree in the first place. “We should not give in to the tantrums of a union that is spreading fear among its members,” Parks said. One has to wonder what Parks would call it when, in November 2003, he threw a hissy fit of a tantrum and raises for council members – himself included – became a matter of public debate. He said his raise was a “private matter.” If a raise is a “private matter,” what does Parks call full financial disclosure before an officer is accused of misconduct? last_img read more

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: Reds battle back to seal FA Cup quarter-final spot

first_img Liverpool pair Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno celebrate the former’s goal against Crystal Palace Liverpool battled through to the last eight of the FA Cup after coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.Reds fans were fearing another upset against what has become their bogey team in recent seasons, and it went to script when Fraizer Campbell put the hosts in front in the first-half.Brendan Rodgers’ side gathered themselves, though, and looked the more likely team to score ahead of the break, and fit-again Daniel Sturridge finally had the visitors level shortly after the re-start with a neat volley.The Reds boss called on striker Mario Balotelli at half-time to add attacking potency to his side, and the Italian proved his worth once again by playing a hand in the winning goal.His powerful free-kick was well saved by Julian Speroni, but the rebound was pounced on by Adam Lallana, whose first-time finish sealed Liverpool’s progression as they held on for the win.Right from the very start there was a sense there would be goals, as fans witnessed an end-to-end opening at Selhurst Park.Liverpool mustered the first shots on target but it was Palace who scored the first goal, the ever-dangerous Dwight Gale causing problems for goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, whose punched clearance only went as far as Campbell, who took advantage of a defensive mix-up to slot home into an empty net.The Redmen responded well, controlling possession and forcing the Eagles back with some neat, patient approach play, which concluded with Lallana seeing a snap shot well saved by Speroni, who was on hand again to deny Philippe Coutinho moments later.Liverpool were really heaping the pressure on Palace at it seemed they had got their break when Sturridge was tripped in the box, though the referee waved away claims for a penalty.Lazar Markovic was a livewire for the visitors and he was next to go close to the equaliser, beating three defenders in an electric run but lashing his shot over the crossbar from 20 yards.But Palace had a livewire of their own in Gayle, who was denied by a brilliant save from Mignolet, after the attacker did well to control a bobbling pass to go one-on-one with the Reds goalkeeper.Palace seemed content to sit back on their lead and hit Liverpool on the counter, and with pacey attacking duo Gayle and Yannick Bolasie it was an effective strategy, and frustration grew for Liverpool as they repeatedly saw their attacking moves break down.After the break, though, it took little time for Brendan Rodgers’ side to finally find the back of the net, Daniel Sturridge slotting a volley through the legs of Speroni to deservedly level from Jordan Henderson’s ball into the boxThe half-time introduction of Balotelli gave the Reds another dimension up front, and – following his game-winning heroics against Tottenham – the Italian was involved again to put his side in front.The Merseysiders failed to keep the momentum in their favour, however, as Alan Pardew’s Palace began to push on for their second, and the hosts had their own shouts for a spot-kick turned down after the ball pinged up onto the hand of full-back Alberto Moreno in the penalty area, though it would have been a harsh decision against the Spaniard.Palace’s superiority didn’t last long though, as the Reds managed to close out the win to take a step closer to Wembley. 1last_img read more
