LCS SEASONTEAMS ABOVE .500TEAMS AT OR BELOW .500 Since League Championship Series format began in 1969. Includes all LCS seasons for which at least three of the “Final Four” teams were at or below .500 through 40 games, two years later.Sources: ESPN, Retrosheet, Lahman DB 2007Red SoxDiamondbacks, Indians, Rockies The only group that may have fallen further, faster were the LCS participants from 1985 — the Blue Jays, Royals, St. Louis Cardinals and L.A. Dodgers — all of whom were at or below .500 through 40 games of the very next season. Of those four, only the Jays rallied over the remainder of the season to finish with more wins than losses. (At 86-76, they finished in third place and never really sniffed the playoffs after the rough start, though they were arguably the AL’s best team from mid-May onward.)The same scenario — one team ultimately recovering from the slow start — may play out this season. Although the Cubs are in this unenviable group for now, it’s probably just an early bump on the road to another fine season. (Even if their once-mighty defense isn’t what it used to be.)But the other three have bigger problems that might prevent them from clawing their way back onto the winning side of the ledger. Even after their recent upswing, the Blue Jays still occupy last place in the AL East, which might be baseball’s toughest division. Similarly, K.C. is last in the AL Central despite making strides over the past week-plus. And the Mets are in significant disarray from both an injury and a performance perspective. None are tracking for a winning season, according to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo projections.Baseball is fundamentally more unpredictable than sports such as the NBA (looking forward to that third consecutive Warriors-Cavs final?) or even the NFL (for all its vaunted parity). But it’s still surprising to see these four teams struggle after being, until very recently, the cream of the game’s crop. Since the League Championship Series format began in 1969, it’s tough to find a “Final Four” of baseball that’s fallen on harder times two years later than 2015’s quartet of the Kansas City Royals, New York Mets, Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays. Through 40 games of a season, this is the first time ever that all four LCS participants from two years prior were .500 or worse: 1983OriolesWhite Sox, Dodgers, Phillies 1984PadresCubs, Tigers, Royals THROUGH 40 GAMES, TWO YEARS LATER… Baseball’s 2015 “Final Four” have fallen on hard times 1992BravesAthletics, Pirates, Blue Jays 2015—Cubs, Royals, Mets, Blue Jays
Northern Michigan came into its game against the Ohio State men’s hockey team Saturday night ranked No. 14 in the country, but for the second-straight game, it was the Buckeyes who played like a team worthy of national recognition. OSU won 4-1 and completed a two-game sweep of the Wildcats after defeating Northern Michigan by the same score Friday afternoon. Four players scored for OSU in the Saturday contest and senior goalie Cal Heeter had 18 saves to help the team to a series sweep. The unranked Buckeyes are now unbeaten in their last seven games, and are riding a five-game winning streak during which they have outscored their opponents 20-2. “Ohio State is a good hockey team. I don’t know if people know how good they are. They were owning the game,” Northern Michigan coach Walt Kyle said. The Buckeyes owned Saturday’s game from the start. Senior forward Danny Dries put OSU on the board with a goal at 10:54 in the first period. Dries received a pass from senior defenseman Sean Duddy just inside the blue line and fired the puck past Wildcats’ goalie Reid Ellingson. Freshman forward Nick Oddo scored at 9:08 in the second period, and OSU led 2-0 after 40 minutes. The Buckeyes outshot the Wildcats 31-8 through two stanzas, including a 17-2 advantage in the middle period. Northern Michigan cut OSU’s lead to one with a goal at 3:12 in the third period. The Buckeyes went on the power play less than a minute after the goal, and took advantage with a goal from sophomore defenseman Curtis Gedig at 4:14. OSU was on the power play four times during the game, while the Wildcats only held a player advantage twice. “At the beginning of the year, we were spending too much time in the box,” Dries said. “We have done a much better job of staying out of the box, especially over the last two weekends.” Oddo found sophomore forward Alex Lippincott in front of the Wildcats goal, who backhanded the puck into the net, giving OSU a 4-1 lead with just more than 12 minutes remaining in the game. The Buckeyes responded to Northern Michigan’s lone goal with two of their own in a span of 3:54, putting the game far from in reach for the Wildcats, preserving a win and series sweep. “When the other team scores, you are going to start second guessing yourselves, but I do not think they did that,” OSU head coach Mark Osiecki said. “It is probably a good thing Northern scored and put us in that position. It let us see how our guys would handle it.” The win puts OSU in a tie for first place atop the Central Collegiate Hockey Association standings with Notre Dame and Lake Superior. The Buckeyes are now 8-3-1 on the year, 5-2-1-1 in conference play. “We are taking things day-to-day, and we are not looking at the rankings yet. We are trying to go one day at a time,” Gedig said. Northern Michigan drops to 4-5-3, 1-4-3-2 in the CCHA with the loss. The Buckeyes will travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to face Michigan in a two-game series starting on Friday.

New West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has hinted that he will be making more signings this summer following Andy Carroll and Winston Reid’s injury blows earlier this monthBoth players have provoked old injuries during the club’s pre-season training program at their camp in Switzerland and have now been sent home, upon confirmation that they will likely be out for the next three months.Since his appointment in May, Pellegrini has been busy in the transfer market for West Ham and has already acquired eight new players with the midfielders Felipe Anderson and Jack Wilshere the latest recruits.But Pellegrini has suggested that more may be on the way in wake of Carrol and Reid’s latest injury setbacks.Report: Rice is committed to West Ham not a United move George Patchias – September 4, 2019 Declan Rice is committed to his West Ham contract and not a move to Manchester United.In an interview reported by football.london, Rice opens up…“We are obviously very sad to hear that Andy and Winston have suffered setbacks,” the Chilean told Football London.“This is a big blow for them and us, but we hope to see them back in action as soon as possible.“It does mean that we have lost two senior players in key areas, though, and we’ll continue to work hard with the owners to make further additions to strengthen the playing squad, beyond the five new signings already confirmed.”Pellegrini will take charge of his first competitive game at West Ham on August 11 in a trip to Liverpool for their opening game of the Premier League season.
Italy international Mario Balotelli reveals that the coming of new coach Vieira affected his decision.Speaking to the OGCNice TV as reported by Football Italia, Balotelli said:“That’s for sure. That changed 80 per cent of my decision.”Marseille were openly courting SuperMario and there were reports he had a medical with them.“I had proposition from Marseille, I spoke with them, I have a good relation with the Coach of Marseille and they were one of the five clubs.“I don’t know why only Marseille came out, as I never spoke about that. I had a proposition from them, just as I did from other teams.”Corini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.Considering the bitter rivalry between Nice and Marseille, Balo’s supporters weren’t happy with the speculation.“I look at my career, to be honest, I cannot worry about what supporters say. I am sorry if they are sad, but that’s part of my job and I can’t do much about that. All I can say is that when I am in Nice, I give everything for Nice, but one day I won’t be here. That’s normal.“I understand the supporter’s way of thinking, but they have to understand me too. For example, Nice are not in Europe this year and Marseille are, that’s one of the reasons why I considered them as an option. I look at what is best and in the end I chose to stay here.“I had a very big offer from China and I said no, not for now. I love to play football and my objective is to have two very important years, as I want to play in the European Championship and that would be difficult if I went to China.“I love football and still love football, so money can wait. I tell my supporters thank you, I’ll try to make you happy this season and try my best. As for Nice supporters, they should always follow this club.”
