The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on a tear — 43 wins in 50 games since June 9, the best 50-game stretch in MLB history — and they now stand at 79-32, which puts the team in a position to win more games than the 2001 Seattle Mariners and 1906 Chicago Cubs, who each won 116 games, the most ever by a baseball team in a season.According to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo model, which simulates the remainder of the season using power ratings and each team’s probability of winning every game, the Dodgers are on pace to win 112 games. But that’s just their average outcome — in some simulations they win more, and in some they win less. In a shade over 20 percent of our simulations, they win at least 116 games, which would tie the all-time mark. And 13.5 percent of the time, they finish the season with at least 117 victories, setting a new single-season record for greatness. 11713.55.1 CHANCE DODGERS FINISH WITH… 11620.16.5 1195.12.2 1202.91.4 Elo still doesn’t quite think the Dodgers are the greatest team of all-time.

How The LastPlace Bulls Became The Hottest Team In The East

CHICAGO — After the Bulls sparked controversy in June by trading their franchise star to launch a rebuild, the team’s floor — already below sea level — just kept dropping.In October, only days before the team’s season-opener, forwards Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic clashed during practice, with Mirotic suffering a concussion and fractured bones in his face. In November, the Warriors thrashed Chicago by 49 points — without All-Stars Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. Then earlier this month, things seemed to hit a new low. The Bulls, owners of a league-worst 3-20 mark, dropped a 10th-straight game, blowing a 16-point fourth-period lead to the Pacers.Fast forward two weeks, and that same ragtag collection of players who couldn’t buy a win in November is suddenly and mysteriously unbeatable. The Bulls, after blowing out Orlando on Wednesday, are winners of seven straight and own the East’s longest win streak. Only Golden State — 10 in a row — has more. If that seems bizarre … you’re right: Before this, no team in NBA history had ever lost 10 consecutive games (or more) and then rebounded with an immediate win streak of five games or more. Before this Bulls streak, FiveThirtyEight’s NBA projection system1Which, to be fair, doesn’t account for injuries like Mirotic’s. would have given Chicago just a 0.03 percent chance — 3 in 10,000 — of sweeping the seven games it’s won.The turnaround raises two questions for this young club: What, exactly, has changed in such a short amount of time? And are the Bulls at risk of jeopardizing their rebuild and a chance at a good lottery pick by winning too much? The Sixers Still Have Growing Pains To Work Out Related: The Lab Mirotic’s return is the easiest thing to connect to the Bulls’ streak, considering that it began with his first game back. He’s playing unsustainably well — it’s almost impossible to imagine his continuing to be the NBA’s most efficient high-volume post player while shooting 49 percent from the 3-point line. And he’s averaging 35.8 points and 14.1 rebounds per 100 possessions, which puts him among a handful of superstars in the league posting at least 35 and 10.Part of this is opportunity. Mirotic comes off the bench2When Lauri Markkanen is healthy enough to play. but is clearly the No. 1 option when he’s on the floor. That’s a change from the past, when he had to defer to Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade or Derrick Rose. But to his credit, Mirotic has made one key change in his game: The 6-foot-10 forward has been more decisive with the ball than in years past. In particular, he has largely shelved a pump fake that often seemed to do the opposite of its intended purpose.According to an analysis published in 2015 by Vantage Sports, Mirotic fired off a shot attempt after using a pump fake more than anyone in the league during the 2014-15 season, yet logged the worst field-goal percentage on those shots among the league’s most frequent pump fakers.3If you broaden the sample by one more year, Mirotic was even worse. He shot just 22 percent from the field after pump fakes over the two-season stretch covering 2014-15 and 2015-16, the worst in the league among players who attempted at least 100 shots after pump fakes in that window. (Unlike Stephen Curry or JJ Redick, who pump-fake their way into cleaner looks by using a side dribble, Mirotic often stood fully stationary and faked his way into a worse shot, which gave defenders extra time to close out on him even further. You can see the difference in the clips below — the first shows a failed pump fake from 2014 and the second, from Wednesday’s game, shows Mirotic shoot in rhythm without any hesitation.)Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/miroticpumpfake.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/miroticquick.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Pointing solely at Mirotic’s impact would be oversimplifying the genesis of the streak, though. Kris Dunn — acquired in the Butler trade after posting the league’s worst true-shooting percentage among regulars4Who played 15 minutes per night and in at least 65 games. last season — has settled in nicely as the starting point guard after an initial rough patch. He has been getting to the basket regularly — ranking fourth in the NBA during the Bulls’ win streak, with almost 18 drives per game — and finishing more consistently once he gets there.Quietly, backup shooting guard David Nwaba — who also recently returned after being injured — might be having the strongest influence on the team’s winning. He aggressively pushes the ball in transition, arguably one of the bigger shifts in Chicago’s identity. The Bulls have ranked second in pace during this streak, up from 23rd before it. The 24-year-old generates nearly 32 percent of his offense from transition opportunities, the highest rate in the NBA5Among players who’ve checked into at least 15 games and gotten at least two transition possessions per game. and has scored on an impressive 65 percent of those chances. That and his energy on defense explain Nwaba’s presence in eight of the Bulls’ nine most efficient two-man lineups6With at least 100 minutes played. up to this point.“It’s a lot easier for our team to score in transition instead of having to break down a set defense that’s already set up, so I like to run when I can,” said Nwaba, who is on pace to become the first 6-foot-4 or shorter player7Who has played at least 15 games and 20 minutes per contest. in 30 years to shoot 55 percent or better from the field. That mindset is particularly valuable to a points-starved Bulls team that, even after reeling off seven victories in a row, is essentially tied for last in the league in offensive efficiency.These two plays — in which Nwaba catches opposing players off guard by taking an extra dribble or two into the teeth of the transition defense — are typical of how he generates scores for Chicago.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/nwaba.mp400:0000:0000:19Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/extradribble.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The defensive improvement has been noteworthy as of late, too, especially since the Bulls have begun playing lineups with four defenders who can all switch their assignments and having their rim protector play pick-and-rolls less aggressively.But no one — well, except maybe Bulls forward Denzel Valentine — expects Chicago to continue playing at this level. (Tonight, the 10-20 Bulls take on LeBron James and the Cavs, who dominated them in a game just before this streak began.) It’s highly unlikely that the Bulls will maintain their Warriors- or Rockets-like shooting from midrange or that opposing teams will continue bricking wide-open threes against them in late-game scenarios.A quick look at the replies under this tweet (highlighting the Bulls’ streak) shows that Chicago fans are worrying about how this stretch of good basketball could hurt the team’s odds of landing a top lottery pick, a concern that still seems a bit premature considering everything that could take place between now and the end of the season.As good as Mirotic has looked, he has had to split playing time with Lauri Markkanen, the team’s promising first-round draft pick.8Also acquired in the Butler deal, although the Bulls traded their own pick to Minnesota as part of the deal. If Mirotic keeps playing anywhere near this level, the Chicago front office would have a nice asset once his contract becomes tradable9On Jan. 15. — a move that would free up more opportunity for Markkanen, who’s far younger and more athletic than Mirotic and has a similar skill set.Beyond that, Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg told me and other reporters Wednesday that Zach LaVine is only two or three weeks away from seeing game action after tearing his ACL last season. His presence in the lineup will alter things considerably, for better or worse, as he knocks off the rust.All of this is simply another way of saying: Yes, the Bulls have been on a historic run the past couple of weeks, but they still have a fair number of flaws to work through. And for those worried about what the win streak means for tanking purposes, the educated guess here is that they’ll still lose plenty of games along the way to stay firmly in the lottery conversation.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

Ohio State baseball rallies to undefeated start in 4game Florida series

Then-sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson awaits a pitch.Credit: Lantern file photoThe Ohio State baseball team opened the 2016 season with a bang.Over the course of the four-game weekend, OSU hammered six home runs, pounded out 38 hits and maintained an unbeaten 3-0-1 record in Vero Beach, Florida’s, Dodgertown Classic. Several Buckeyes had outstanding weekends, but none more than redshirt junior Jacob Bosiokovic. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound right fielder finished the weekend with a .412 batting average after going 7-for-17, including three home runs and eight RBIs. Senior captain Nick Sergakis also finished with a .412 average, and senior second baseman L Grant Davis batted a clean .400. Game 1 versus Toledo In the opening game, the Buckeyes were led by their workhorse pitcher, Tanner Tully, who retired 24 of the 25 batters he faced over six scoreless innings as they defeated Toledo 7-1. “It was just what the doctor ordered to have a first start like that,” OSU coach Greg Beals said in a press release. “Give the Toledo hitters credit. I thought they took some good swings and hit him at times. He wasn’t his sharpest, but six scoreless innings is pretty darn good.”OSU’s offense was powered by the long ball against the Rockets, as it crushed three home runs during the game. Bosiokovic went 3-for-5, with a solo home run in his first at-bat of the year which gave the Buckeyes the early lead. Junior catcher and team captain Jalen Washington also crushed a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to push OSU’s lead to 5-0. Then, in the bottom of the sixth, junior center fielder Troy Montgomery hit a two-run homer to right, pushing OSU’s lead to an insurmountable 7-0. Toledo would tack on a late homer in the top of the eighth to mark the final score of 7-1. Beals said it was great for his team to step up and play clean baseball in the first game of the season, as it has been a long road coming for some of his guys. “Both Jacob and Jalen took advantage of their opportunity today,” Beals said. “Jalen has been working his tail off for three years and got the nod. It was great to see him get off to a good start. For Bosiokovic, he struggled and dealt with some injury in the past, and hopefully today will allow him to relax a little bit and have a great season for us.”Game 2 versus NiagaraTo start Saturday’s doubleheader of the Dodgertown Classic trip, the Buckeye bats continued to carry the momentum, especially Bosiokovic. The Delaware, Ohio, native went 2-for-5, including a two-run homer and a walk-off three-run shot to seal a 10-8 comeback victory for the Buckeyes.Redshirt sophomore pitcher Adam Niemeyer started off hot for OSU, allowing only one run over the first four innings. But then the wheels started to fall off for the Minster, Ohio, native, as he allowed four runs in the fifth. He was pulled that inning, giving way to sophomore reliever Seth Kinker, who stopped the bleeding for OSU. That bandage didn’t stay on for long though, as Kinker allowed two more runs in the top sixth inning, pinning OSU to a 7-4 deficit. The Scarlet and Gray showed resiliency, however, as Washington scored on a sacrifice fly by sophomore designated hitter Jordan McDonough. Kinker would settle down, pitching a scoreless seventh, and Bosiokovic correspondingly hit a two-run home run off the left-center scoreboard tying the game. Kinker pitched a scoreless eighth, then redshirt sophomore Yianni Pavlopoulos made his season debut in the ninth, blanking the Purple Eagles and setting the stage for Bosiokovic.OSU quickly got runners on base in the ninth after senior shortstop Craig Nennig walked and advanced to second on a throwing error. Montgomery was then intentionally walked, bringing up No. 17. Bosiokovic crushed a 2-2 pitch off the foul pole in left field to give the Buckeyes their second victory in as many games. Game 3 versus PittsburghIn the second half of the doubleheader on Saturday, the Buckeyes faced the Pittsburgh Panthers. The game would turn out to be a marathon, as the two teams battled 13 innings before OSU won the game 11-8 after a three-run 13th. Montgomery continued his hot start, as the Fortville, Indiana, native went 3-for-6 on the evening, including his second home run and three RBIs. Senior John Havird pitched 5.2 innings for the Buckeyes as the Game 3 starter for OSU, allowing five runs while striking out six Panthers batters. With Pittsburgh up 6-5 heading into the top of the ninth, OSU rallied for the second time that day, scoring three runs to take the 8-6 lead. The lead wouldn’t last, however, as it evaporated after giving up two more runs to send the game into extra innings. No runs were scored in the 10th, 11th or 12th innings as both teams held their ground. The Buckeyes broke through in the 13th with three runs to push their lead to 11-8. Nennig, Davis and Montgomery all scored to provide the insurance runs for the Scarlet and Gray. Freshman relief pitcher Connor Curlis came in to start the 12th inning and remained in for the 13th to finish off the Panthers and pick up the two-inning win in his collegiate debut. Game 4 versus ToledoAs the final game in Vero Beach got underway, the Buckeyes’ red-hot bats continued to bring home the runs. Junior left fielder Ronnie Dawson hit a double to bring home Montgomery and Bosiokovic in the top of the first inning. Dawson would later score on a sacrifice fly by freshman third baseman Brady Cherry to give OSU the early 3-0 lead. The lead quickly dissolved, however, as freshman starting pitcher Ryan Feltner gave up four runs over the first three innings, leaving the Buckeyes down 4-3. Feltner was pulled in the fifth for senior lefty Daulton Mosbarger. Over the next three innings of scoreless ball, Mosbarger struck out six, allowing just one walk and three hits. OSU tied the game in the eighth when Dawson scored on another sac fly, this time off the bat of junior first baseman Zach Ratcliff. But in the bottom of the same inning, Toledo would tack-on a go-ahead run on a fielding error, putting them in position for the win.The Buckeyes once again turned to the bat of Bosiokovic, who provided the game-tying run on a sacrifice fly to score Davis. The game ended in a 5-5 draw, marking the first time since 2002 that the Buckeyes tied a game. The Buckeyes will next look ahead to the Coastal Carolina Tournament from Feb. 26 to 29. OSU is scheduled to play Duke, Coastal Carolina (twice, Games 2 and 4) and Liberty in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. read more

FIFA plan changes to international loan system

first_imgFIFA are planning changes to the international transfer system that sees players to leave and join other clubs on loan.The changes are expected to limit the number of player loans by clubs and also handle agents’ fees. FIFA are reportedly planning to reduce the number of players a club can loan out each season to between six and eight.The aim of these changes are to stop clubs, especially in England and Italy signing a large number of players and loaning them out immediately.Chelsea currently have around 40 players on their books who are out on loan while Italian champions Juventus also have 25 players away from the club on loan.FIFA are also proposing to create a clearinghouse, managed by a bank, to handle solidarity payments from transfer fees due to clubs that trained players in their own academy. This proposed clearinghouse would also be responsible for handling payments to agents.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

Simeone Griezmann did more than even Ronaldo Messi in 2018

first_imgAtletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone believes Antoine Griezmann is a worthy winner of the 2018 Ballon d’Or awardThe 27-year-old forward’s impressive displays this year helped Atletico win the Europa League, which ended their four-year wait for silverware.Aside from that, Griezmann also had a key role in leading France to a second World Cup title in Russia and even claimed he’s on par with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.Reflecting on this, Simeone is adamant that Griezmann has made a great case for himself in this year’s Ballon d’Or race.”France plays thanks to his intelligence,” Simeone told France Football.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“When Antoine is lucid and in great physical shape, there’s no footballer in the world that understands and interprets football like he can.“And when you look at the titles he won, the World Cup, Europa League and European Süper Cup, there was no player more important for his team””In general I can state that Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the best in the world.“But not in 2018, this time Antoine is in front of everyone.”He added: “In 2018, no player did as many significant things as he did for France and Atlético – this is the reality.”last_img read more

Memo Raises Legal Questions With Alaska Budget Language

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A legislative attorney says language in Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget proposal giving his budget office discretion to transfer money within departments raises legal and constitutional questions. The memo was requested and released by Sen. Bill Wielechowski (wil-uh-KOW’-ski), a Democratic member of the Senate Finance Committee. The budget language in question states that at the budget office’s discretion, it could transfer funding between items in a department. Linda Bruce, in a memo, writes that a court is unlikely to find that the language is legally permissible or constitutional. She notes that the Legislature has the power of appropriation.

US court orders Apple to pay 234 million for using BITS Pilani

first_imgTech giant Apple has been asked to pay $234 million to the intellectual property arm of Wisconsin University, Madison, for using without permission patented technology developed by its team, including two Indian-American engineers.The award amount a federal jury in Madison asked Apple to pay on Friday was about $165 million less than what Wisconsin University Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) had sought, according to Wisconsin State Journal. The case centres on technology that became a component of processors that run widely popular Apple devices such as iPhone and iPad.Gurindar Sohi and Terani Vijaykumar, both electrical and electronics engineering graduates of Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani, were part of the four-member WARF team which developed the technology.US district judge William Conley, who presided over the trial, complimented the lawyers on their professionalism and spoke to Wisconsin University-Madison computer sciences’ Professor Sohi, who led the WARF technology team, seated in the courtroom.”For Dr Sohi, I hope you felt that your invention was vindicated,” Conley was quoted as saying.”This is a case where the hard work of our university researchers and the integrity of patenting and licensing discoveries has prevailed,” said Carl Gulbrandsen, managing director of WARF.”The jury recognized the seminal computer processing work that took place on our campus. This decision is great news for the inventors, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and for WARF.”Apple attorneys declined to comment, referring questions to the California company’s public relations office, the Journal said.Spokesperson Rachel Tulley said only that Apple plans to appeal.The jury also ruled that a subset of processing chips produced in Texas by Samsung under contract for Apple, then exported to Korea, still infringed on WARF’s patent.The jury also ruled that although those chips were produced by Samsung, Apple controlled their production.WARF sued Apple in January 2014, claiming that Apple infringed on one of WARF’s patents in creating a processor for its popular mobile devices, starting with the iPhone 5S in 2012.On 13 October, the jury agreed that Apple’s use of the technology was an infringement of WARF’s patent.The technology, first incorporated into Apple’s A7 processor and used now in the A8 and A8X processors, makes the processors work faster and more efficiently, and extend battery life by as much as two hours.According to WARF complaints, the patent titled “Table-Based Data Speculation Circuit for Parallel Processing Computer” was issued to Andreas Moshovos, Scott Breach, Terani Vijaykumar, and Gurindar Sohi in 1998 as a result of their “labour and ingenuity”.”The invention disclosed and claimed in the patent has been recognized by those in the art as a major milestone in the field of computer microprocessing,” the complaints stated.”This work has been recognized as a major milestone in the field of computer microprocessor architecture/design,” lawyers for WARF wrote in the complaint.”Indeed, Dr (Gurindar) Sohi, the leader of the lab that developed the ‘752 patent, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering based on his work in the field of computer architecture,” they added.WARF had also asserted that Apple wilfully infringed on its patent, a claim that withstood a summary judgment motion in August.But on 15 October night, after hearing testimony from Apple’s witnesses during the trial’s damages phase, Conley reconsidered and dismissed the wilfulness claim.last_img read more
