The power of proactivity

The new name results from a 2018 charter expansion that allowed members to join from beyond the original FOM of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. There now are members in 17 states and one Canadian province.Marketing consists primarily of word-of-mouth – in person at union halls and on the job, and on the internet. The credit union has been gaining two or three new members a day online, Robinson says, and a single posting recently on closed Facebook page for union ironworkers generated 40 new members in one day.last_img read more

Strategy

first_imgWill the Reds repeat as Central Division Champions? The jury is still out, of course. One of the debates that keeps coming up is their style of play. They play for the home run rather than advancing runners and playing “small ball”. Part of this is the result of the ball park they play in. GABP is an easy park to hit home runs in, so everyone believes they are home run hitters. When you depend on the home run, your batters usually have a longer swing arc. They try to generate the power by literally winding into a swing rather than using a short swing and trying to put the ball in play. Some blame this on the hitting coach, but most of them have less influence on hitting at the major league level. These players are paid to do certain things, and getting them to change is hard at best. One thing is fact–teams who depend on home runs are more likely to also strike out a lot and this is happening frequently with the Reds this year. We will all forget this debate if the Reds get really hot as they did last year. What we do know is that St. Louis is a “small ball” team, and as long as they are winning, we will have this debate. Fans like one thing, and that is winning! If you win, the talk will stop.last_img read more

Kenley Jansen blows a save, Dodgers lose to Rays in 11 innings

first_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Manager Dave Roberts said Jansen will get another opportunity for redemption, even after getting booed off the field by some especially patient Dodger Stadium patrons. The 11-inning game featured 10 pinch-hit appearances, 18 pitchers – nine on each side, after 16 men pitched the day before – as well as four lead changes and three ties. The game ended when Russell Martin struck out, 4 hours and 40 minutes after the first pitch.If Jansen’s struggles amounted to one bad dream, Roberts might not have fielded a question about who will be his closer in October. Yet Jansen’s eight blown saves are a career-high. So is his 3.81 earned-run average. His entire season deserves an exorcism.“He didn’t have the command that he did the last few times out and when you don’t, you get exposed, but I don’t think it’s a step back,” Roberts said of Jansen. “I think the results speak to that. Kenley’s in a good place.”The Dodgers were leading 6-4 when the Rays rallied with one out in the ninth inning. Tommy Pham singled and stole second base. Matt Duffy walked and was replaced by a pinch-runner, Johnny Davis.Ji-Man Choi took an 0-and-2 cutter from Jansen that appeared to cross the outside corner of the plate. Johnson called it a ball, however, and Choi stroked Jansen’s next pitch into left field for a single. Pham scored the Rays’ fifth run. Davis went to third base, then scored when Travis d’Arnaud hit a sacrifice fly to deep center field. Suddenly the score was tied 6-6.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — To Kenley Jansen’s credit, he is at least aware of the calendar.The veteran pitcher refrained from leaning on excuses after blowing another save Wednesday night, his eighth this season, in the Dodgers’ eventual 8-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Jansen was the victim of a tight strike zone from home plate umpire Adrian Johnson. He was attempting to convert saves on back-to-back days for the first time since May. He allowed only one hard-hit ball to the six batters he faced in the ninth inning.Yet Jansen also failed to protect a 6-4 lead against a good team, the exact situation the Dodgers’ closer – whoever it might be – will be tasked with during the postseason. Only nine regular-season games remain.“I didn’t have it today,” Jansen said in an even-toned voice. “I sucked. I just have to move on. Can’t let this one just haunt you.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire In the 11th inning, Austin Meadows hit a solo home run against Dodgers right-hander Josh Sborz (0-1). Tampa Bay tacked on another run when Pham – who finished 5 for 6 – doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly.The Dodgers mounted one last rally in the bottom of the 11th against Rays pitcher Peter Fairbanks. Corey Seager singled with one out. Will Smith lofted a fly ball down the right-field line, but Avisail Garcia watched it glance off his glove for an error. With two outs, Edwin Rios punched a single into center field, scoring Seager to pull the Dodgers within a run.But Fairbanks came back to strike out Martin with a pair of runners on base. After two days of exhaustive “bullpenning,” the Dodgers get a well-earned day off Thursday. Beginning Friday, Roberts will hand the ball to his three cemented postseason starters – Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Walker Buehler – against the Colorado Rockies.By splitting a two-game interleague series with the Rays (90-63), the Dodgers (98-55) lowered their magic number to clinch home-field advantage through the National League Championship Series to four. They can wrap that up no earlier than Saturday.Cody Bellinger hit his 45th home run of the season in the eighth inning, temporarily extending the Dodgers’ lead to 6-4. The solo blast clanged off the right field foul pole, and ended a 12-game homerless drought. Bellinger now ranks third in the National League in home runs, behind Mets rookie Pete Alonso (49) and the Reds’ Eugenio Suarez (47).Bellinger also hit a double as part of a 2-for-5 performance. Chris Taylor, Seager and A.J. Pollock also had two of the Dodgers’ 12 hits.Tampa Bay scored once in the first inning against opener Casey Sadler, tied the score at 3-3 against Tony Gonsolin in the fifth, and scored again to take a 4-3 lead with Joe Kelly on the mound in the sixth.In the bottom of the sixth, Pollock led off with a single against reliever Chaz Roe and stole second base. Taylor singled, sending Pollock to third. Oliver Drake struck out Bellinger on an 0-and-2 fastball at the knees, then was relieved by Nick Anderson.With a right-handed pitcher on the mound, Roberts pulled Kiké Hernandez and substituted Joc Pederson, a left-handed hitter. After fouling off a two-strike curveball, Pederson poked a fastball through a vacant left side of the infield. Pollock scored easily, tying the score at 4-4.The Dodgers weren’t done. With Taylor on third base, a fastball caromed off d’Arnaud’s chest protector and toward the Dodgers’ dugout. Taylor scampered home on the passed ball, giving the Dodgers a 5-4 lead.Related Articlescenter_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Gonsolin was scheduled to start the game as recently as Tuesday night. But with Roberts eyeing the rookie right-hander for a possible postseason bullpen job, Sadler started instead. Gonsolin was scheduled to pitch four innings. He needed 49 pitches to complete two innings, walking three batters and allowing two runs.“I just think that he started to lose his command,” Roberts said of Gonsolin. “He just wasn’t sharp. After that second inning, you could see the split up. The fastball wasn’t there. To run him out there just to run him out there – you’re still trying to win a baseball game.”While Gonsolin struggled, fellow rookie Dustin May shone in two shutout innings. Using a sinker that touched 99 mph and a 92-mph cutter, May struck out three batters while bolstering his case to make the Dodgers’ postseason roster.Jansen’s credentials took the biggest hit. For most of September, the Dodgers had been content to use him in late-game situations, regardless of whether a save was at stake. He entered Wednesday’s game having converted his past three save opportunities. He had not allowed a run in his last four games overall. Jansen picked a bad time for a hiccup, and he knew it.“He’s thrown 29 pitches in five days,” Roberts said of Jansen. “Talk to him every day and he feels good, he feels strong. We’ve got an off-day coming (Thursday). With that information, talking to the player, yeah, he’s got to do it and get those outs.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

China took the lead thanks to a moment of brilliance from Wu, the Shanghai SIPG star, who was marked by Azkals coach Sven Goran Eriksson as the Chinese’ danger man.
