Last Updated: 29th February, 2020 12:52 IST Greinke Makes 1st Outing After Later Arrival With Astros Zack Greinke wants to sharpen his slider without neglecting his other pitches. COMMENT WATCH US LIVE LIVE TV Zack Greinke wants to sharpen his slider without neglecting his other pitches.“Sometimes if you spend a lot of time on something new, the stuff you do good sometimes suffers from it,” Greinke said Friday after his first spring training outing. “You’ve got to, No. 1, make sure your other stuff stays good, then, hopefully, improve in some ways.”Greinke arrived at spring training on Feb. 22, nine days after the voluntary reporting date, preferring to stay on his own program.”Everybody’s worried about him not being in camp,” new manager Dusty Baker said. “That shows that he’s been working. He came to camp ready.”Greinke mixed about a half dozen sliders into his two-inning, 28-pitch outing for Houston in a 6-4 victory over the Miami Marlins. The 36-year-old right-hander threw 22 strikes.“The second inning was much better than the first inning, slider wise,” catcher Martín Maldonado said.Greinke’s fastball approached 90 mph. He struck out three of seven batters, mixing in a few change-ups and curveballs.Reporting later shortened his long year.”So by the end of the year the mental grind of the season is a little bit less,” Greinke said.Speedster Magneuris Sierra led off the first with an infield single, stole second, advanced on a throwing error and scored on Francisco Cervelli’s sacrifice fly.“I was kind of just trying to throw everything in different locations,” Greinke said. “It felt pretty good. I wasn’t in mid-season form or anything, but all the pitches were pretty close. Just command needs to get a little bit better and pitches a little more consistent.”The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner with Kansas City and a six-time All-Star, Greinke was acquired from Arizona at the July 31 trade deadline. He was 8-1 with a 3.02 ERA in 10 starts for the Astros, giving him 205 wins.The Marlins had opened spring training six six wins, second to the Florida Marlins’ 11 in 1997 — the year of the team’s first World Series title.

This cake is inspired by a classic recipe that originated in Brittany, France. Simply called gateau Breton — Brittany cake — it’s like a super-ultra-rich version of pound cake. Quickly mixed together by hand in a single bowl, it makes the most dense, luxurious cake ever.We’ve taken the same cake and infused it with citrus zests and warm fall spices. Walnuts and hazelnuts work just as well as the almonds, if you prefer.To make toasted, ground nuts, arrange them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in a 350 F oven for 10 minutes. Let them cool completely, then grind them in a food processor until finely ground, but not reduced to a paste. Alternatively, you can purchase ground almonds; simply spread them on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until light golden. CITRUS-SPICE ALMOND BUTTER TORTEStart to finish: 1 hour 15 minutes (15 minutes active)Servings: 121 1/4 cups granulated sugar1 teaspoon cinnamon1/2 teaspoon ground cloves1/2 teaspoon ground allspice1/2 teaspoon ground dry ginger1/4 teaspoon kosher salt6 egg yolks1 teaspoon vanilla extractZest of 1/2 orangeZest of 1/2 lemon1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted1/2 cup toasted and finely ground almonds2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted, then measured)2 tablespoons turbinado or raw sugarWhole almonds, to garnishHeat the oven to 325 F. Coat a 9-inch cake pan with baking spray, then line the bottom with a circle of baking parchment.In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and salt. Add the egg yolks, vanilla and both zests. Whisk until smooth, pale and slightly thickened. Gently whisk in the melted butter, then stir in the ground almonds. Gently fold in the flour, just until combined.Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle the raw sugar over the top, then decorate with whole almonds. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and set on a wire rack to finish cooling.Nutrition information per serving: 310 calories; 180 calories from fat (58 percent of total calories); 20 g fat (11 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 145 mg cholesterol; 32 g carbohydrate; 1 g fiber; 16 g sugar; 4 g protein; 45 mg sodium.___EDITOR’S NOTE: Alison Ladman is a recipe developer for the AP.

By Mike CollettUEFA president Michel Platini ruled himself out of the running for the most powerful job in football on Thursday, the Frenchman deciding not to oppose incumbent Sepp Blatter for the FIFA presidency next year.Platini told the chairman and general secretaries of UEFA’s 54 member nations that he had decided not to stand against the 78-year-old Swiss, who will be seeking a fifth term when the election is held.“This is the decision I have made. I wanted to do what is best for UEFA,” the 59-year-old former France international told reporters.He had previously called for a “breath of fresh air” at FIFA and said during the recent World Cup in Brazil that a new mandate for Blatter would not be good for football.UEFA member Michel D’Hooghe, who also sits on the FIFA executive committee, told reporters after meeting Platini that it was a very positive meeting and he was very pleased with the outcome.“Mr Platini made it clear he has a very important job to do at UEFA and would remain as president and that decision has been warmly welcomed by everyone here,” the Belgian said.The Frenchman’s decision was greeted with applause from the delegates and D’Hooghe added: “We think it is the right decision and I am pleased that at this time there will be no conflict between UEFA and FIFA over the presidency.”The only person so far to declare his intention to run against Blatter is former FIFA deputy secretary generalJerome Champagne, 56, who announced his candidature in January and has recognised he is the underdog.Blatter was first elected president in 1998 and possible candidates have until January to declare their intentions.The signs were already pointing to Platini shying away from pitting himself against the controversial Blatter, with the Swiss counting on strong support outside Europe, before Thursday’s announcement.In March he had said “there is only one person who can beat Blatter – me” but he also made it clear he was happy running UEFA and the decision would be a personal one.Platini is young enough to bide his time and was seen as unlikely to beat Blatter, who will be 83 when his next mandate ends if he wins re-election.That would make the Swiss a year older than his predecessor Jaoao Havelange was when the Brazilian relinquished the post 16 years ago.

Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, left, new team President of basketball operations Gersson Rosas, center, and CEO Ethan Casson pose after a press conference introducing Rosas at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Monday, May 6, 2019. (Elizabeth Flores/Star Tribune via AP)MINNEAPOLIS — Gersson Rosas has firsthand experience with success from unconventional strategy from his 17-year run with the Houston Rockets.An outside-the-box approach might be necessary, if the Minnesota Timberwolves are going to catch up in the cutthroat Western Conference.ADVERTISEMENT The Witcher series prompts over 500,000 reprints of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books Pagadian on tighter security for 100,000 expected at Sto. Niño feast Ex-UAAP stars Kib Montalbo, Arvin Tolentino sign with MPBL teams LeBron James stretches lead in NBA All-Star Game fan voting “We’re going to question the norm with everything that we do,” Rosas said.The first Latino to lead an NBA front office has landed with a 30-year-old franchise defined by bad-luck setbacks and self-induced dysfunction as much as any accomplishments on the court. The hiring of Rosas as president of basketball operations was greenlighted by Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor as the remedy to one of the latest backfires, the hiring of Tom Thibodeau three years ago for the dual role of president and coach.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsAs Taylor and chief executive officer Ethan Casson narrowed their search, they couldn’t help but notice Rosas appeared as confident and eager about joining them as they were about offering the job to him. The Timberwolves used an outside search firm to hire Thibodeau. This time, Casson directed an interview process that included several members of the organization from various levels and departments.“I wanted someone that could work with the entire staff,” Taylor said. “Not only the players, but the whole organization. Somebody that felt like they were part of the team and knew what teamwork meant.” LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard Eduard Folayang gets new opponent for ONE Manila card The Timberwolves averaged the third-smallest crowd in the league last season, an announced figure of 15,305 fans per game, while missing the playoffs after a spirited postseason return in 2018 that ended a 13-year absence. The midsized market of the Twin Cities is as crowded as ever for attention and revenue. There’s just as steep of a climb facing the business side, then, as the basketball operations.One of the reasons Rosas stood out among the four finalists — Chauncey Billups, Trajan Langdon and Calvin Booth were the others — was his holistic vision of a collaborative and innovative culture. During the Thibodeau era, the environment was more fractured than not.“The organizations that have figured that out, and we hope to be one of them, I think will in fact not just win but win at a high level,” Casson said.Rosas briefly left the Rockets in 2013 to become the general manager of the Dallas Mavericks, only to return because he decided the fit was not ideal. This time, with his wife, Susana, and 3-year-old fraternal twins, Giana and Grayson, in tow, the opportunity felt right.“When the resources are in place, this is a great market not only for the organization and the players, but for my family,” said Rosas, who was introduced at a news conference in the Target Center lobby on Monday. He added: “Not only were they interviewing me, but I was interviewing them. And as I’ve talked to different organizations in this league, they stood out.”ADVERTISEMENT Duterte lambasts Catholic Church anew in curse-laden speech before Filipino Baptists Solon urges Solgen to reconsider quo warranto petition vs ABS-CBN Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption MOST READ NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption PLAY LIST 02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award03:05Malakanyang bilib sa Phivolcs | Chona Yu Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Rosas moved with his family from Bogota, Colombia, to Houston, where learned to love basketball in high school and began coaching after college. He started with the Rockets as an intern, immersed himself in the scouting world, and worked his way up to executive vice president of basketball operations, the title he largely held for the last seven seasons.“He’s been way overqualified for his job for a while here,” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said. “He’s more than earned his shot, although I wish he would’ve gone East. We’re going to have an extremely tough competitor in the West.”The first order of business for Rosas will be to determine whether Ryan Saunders, whom Taylor has wholeheartedly endorsed, will remain as coach. General manager Scott Layden, who also added responsibility when Thibodeau was fired on Jan. 6, has been in limbo, too. Rosas said there were no preconditions established by Taylor about their status.Rosas credited Thibodeau for leaving behind a competitive roster, a team led by center Karl-Anthony Towns with plenty of young talent and unrealized potential. The greatest immediate challenge to improvement, beyond the competition in the West, will be the salary cap. Maximum contracts for Towns and enigmatic sidekick Andrew Wiggins have helped push the Timberwolves close to the luxury tax threshold.The most practical changes, then, could first come in the playbook. The MIT-educated Morey led a data-driven overhaul of the Rockets more than a decade ago, with current coach Mike D’Antoni more recently steering the innovation on the court in the pace-and-space era of the NBA. The Rockets have led the league in 3-point attempts for three straight seasons, with the Wolves ranking 26th this season after finishing last in each of the previous two years.“We want to be strategic, and we want to play to our strengths,” Rosas said. “A lot of it has to do with the players we have on our roster and how we can operate out of that, but I think you’re going to see a lot of similarities with how the modern game is being played.” Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments
