Canucks Sven Baertschi waived, tough decisions force hand

first_imgThroughout injuries, the winger has still maintained a solid production for the Canucks. In his last 79 NHL games, he has scored 23 goals and 20 assists, causing some reaction over his roster move..@patersonjeff on Baertschi: This is a guy that has scored 23 goals in his last 79 NHL games. I have trouble justifying how you walk away from a guy who scored 23 goals in 79 games on a team that struggles to put the puck in the net? #Canucks— TSN Radio Vancouver (@TSN1040) September 30, 2019In his first four seasons with the Canucks — not taking into account the three games played in 2014-15 following his trade from the Flames — Baertschi has yet to appear in more than 69 games in a season. Even so, he has finished top-five in goals for the Canucks in three of the last four seasons.Just last offseason, the 2011 first-round pick was granted a three-year contract extension, keeping him in Vancouver through 2020-21.

Just last season, the 26-year-old was limited to 26 games while dealing with post-concussion syndrome (PCS). The Canucks placed Sven Baertschi and two other on waivers on Monday.Following a six-game, four-goal preseason from 22-year-old Adam Gaudette, the Canucks were forced to make a tough decision at the forward position. The forwards designated for assignment to the Canucks’ AHL-affiliate Utica Comets were Baertschi and Nikolay Goldobin. They are joined by defenseman Alex Biega.last_img read more

MLB playoffs 2019: One reason Athletics, Rays could win World Series

first_img MLB playoffs 2019: Three takeaways from an improbable Nationals wild-card win MLB playoffs 2019: One reason Nationals, Brewers could win the World Series Here’s one reason why for both:MLB playoffs 2019: One reason Athletics, Rays could win World SeriesAthletics: This lineup is annoyingWe say this jokingly but also truthfully because this is about as pesky of a lineup as there is in MLB this year. And we don’t mean they are a slap-hitting, free-running team that ekes across runs at opportune times, we mean they can score runs in multiple ways and adjust their approach to whichever pitcher they’re facing.We’ll use two specific examples to prove this and they both come against the Astros. On Aug. 17, the Athletics scored five runs in one inning of a start against Rogelio Armenteros. All six hits were singles and the first three either barely left the infield or stayed in it. Then in a Sept. 10 game started by Wade Miley, the A’s knew he was incined to pitch to contact, so they made contact. The A’s scored seven first-inning runs while Miley recorded just one out. All seven hits he allowed were singles. This team can be scrappy when it needs too.At the same time, this team can absolutely mash. Matt Chapman, Matt Olson and Marcus Semien combined to hit 105 home runs this year. As a team, the A’s were fifth in MLB with 257 home runs. If they need to hit home runs they can do it.This team is as good as any in MLB in finding a way to beat an opposing pitcher and executing its plan. That is tough for any team to deal with.Rays: Starting pitching is healthy at the right timeHere’s a hot take for you: the Rays (when healthy) have the second-best starting rotation in the playoffs this season. MLB playoffs 2019: Juan Soto’s celebration with his father is everything Both of these teams are good, they just happen to have gotten unlucky and were stuck in divisions with the Astros and Yankees.So now, these two teams face off Wednesday for the right to take on the Astros in the divisional round, but they could very well get past the Astros and win it all. Related Newscenter_img MLB playoffs 2019: Brewers’ Trent Grisham doesn’t believe pressure got to him on error Make no mistake, the Rays and Athletics are World Series contenders.They may be the wild cards in the American League, but the A’s have as many wins as every National League playoff team but the Dodgers (97) and the Rays (96) have more than the Cardinals, Nationals and Brewers. Charlie Morton was an early season Cy Young contender last season and may finish third in the American League voting this year. Blake Snell won the AL Cy Young last season and Tyler Glasnow was an early contender for the award this year before he got hurt.Now, the Rays weren’t healthy all year and that very well could have cost them an AL East title, though that is a bit debatable. But now, they are as healthy as they have been all season and this trio can match up with any rotation in MLB stuff for stuff one through three.Glasnow and Snell are not extended out to where the Rays would like them to be, but with that team’s bullpen, Tampa Bay’s pitching is loaded going into the playoffs. It’s more than enough to carry it to a World Series.last_img read more

Korte, Tracy, Wetta, Brand, Green, Valentine – elected to council; Hadorn, Mangan to board; Sales tax question passes

first_imgWellington School Board: Dist. 1 Pos. 4Carol Hadorn 542Maria Cornejo 467Write ins 2Dist. 2 Pos. 5Larry Mangan 430Darin Goodrum 326Kevin Dodds 273Dist. 3 Pos. 6Jason Newberry 895Write-in 13 Caldwell At Large (3 elected)Christopher Baker 162Jennifer Brown 155Jacob Ginn 107Scott York 170Write-in 4 by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sumner County voters went to the polls Tuesday to elect school board and city council members for the various local governments. No race was looked at more closely than Wellington’s new city council “at large” election.And the first historic election was a doozy. Only two of the eight city council incumbents will be returning to serve the Wellington city voters.Jan Korte, John Tracy and Vince Wetta became Wellington’s first four-year at large city council members.John Brand, Kelly Green and Jim Valentine will serve as the other three council members. They will serve two-year terms as a result for finishing fourth through sixth.Of those six, only Korte and Brand are currently on the council Tracy and Valentine are returning to the council after being off for a couple of years. Green and Wetta will be serving for the first time.“For the first time in 48 years, a majority of the Wellington City Council members will be new and not incumbents,” said J.P. Buellesfeld, political consultant.There were 15 city council candidates this year, a local record, running in the new election format which abolished ward voting. Up until this year, council members were elected to two-year terms by only the voters in their particular ward.The new at large election didn’t seem to put all candidates in one neighborhood either. All four of the abolished wards will have a representative.Wetta and Korte are from the old fourth ward. Green is from the old third ward, Valentine and Brand from the old first ward and Tracy is from the old second ward.On the school board side, Carol Hadorn and Larry Mangan were newly elected board members for USD 353. Along with Jason Newberry, who was unopposed, Wellington will have three new board members.As far as the county sales tax goes, Sumner County overwhelmingly voted to retain a half-cent sales tax to help fund Futures Unlimited, Sumner Mental Health Center, and rural county ambulance service. That will last for four years.There were also other Sumner County races.

Ashley Pearson is convicted of misdemeanor theft of elderly man’s residence after medical emergency

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — A Wellington woman is awaiting sentencing tomorrow morning by a Sumner County District Court Judge, after a jury found her guilty of misdemeanor theft of an elderly man’s home, who at the time was being rushed to Sumner Regional Medical Center for a medical emergency.Ashley PearsonAlthough the Sumner County jury found Ashley Pearson, born in 1989, of Wellington guilty of misdemeanor theft last week, it found her innocent of level 7 felony burglary and level 9 felony theft.Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer had charged her with two felonies, which if convicted could have put Pearson in jail for a certain period. Instead — with the lesser single misdemeanor conviction — that may not be the case.Her alleged accomplice Curtis Callaway is scheduled for a jury trial for the same alleged crime(s) on March 10. He too will be facing level 7 burglary and level 9 theft charges.Pearson and Callaway were accused of entering the house of an elderly man on 306 W. 12th Street in Wellington in the early morning of July 25, 2014.They allegedly stole several items including:  a leather wallet with $140 in cash; a driver’s license, a social security cash; a Remington .22 pump hexagon barrel rifle; a Marlin 30/30 lever action rifle; a Remington 12 gauge pump shotgun; a Winchester 12 gauge pump shotgun, a Remington .22 bolt action rifle; a 12 gauge single shot gun; ammunition; two rifle scores; a Security State checkbook; an Impact Bank checkbook; sheets and bed spread; Trac phones and Boeing pins.Curtis CallawayThe value of the property was considered to be more than $1,000 but less than $25,000. Property of less than $1,000 is considered a misdemeanor charge and property valued more than $1,000 is a felony.Pearson’s defense attorney Evan Watson said the prosecutor could not establish in court that more than $1,000 worth of property was stolen — thus the misdemeanor conviction.According to the complaint affidavit, Wellington police officers were called in on July 27 because of a residential burglary at the Jesse Hare residence. On the previous Thursday evening, a Wellington male was taken by an ambulance to SRMC. Then at 1:30 a.m. Friday, his son in law came back to the house to secure the house which according to the affidavit at that time appeared to be fine.In the complaint, the son-in-law returned again on Sunday morning and discovered the home had been ransacked and several items including the owner’s guns were missing. The back door was ajar and there was an open window behind the gun cabinet. He also reported that several hand tools were missing from the old farm truck parked on the west side of the house near the garage. It is unknown whether the tools were stolen at the same time the house was burglarized.The WPD investigators asked neighbors, and one reported that the lights were on around 3 a.m. and that was unusual she said. A relative of Pearson, allegedly told WPD that she was discussing with her husband about the neighbor being admitted to the hospital the night in question, and that Pearson was in the house living there temporarily and overheard the conversation.She also allegedly had been dating Callaway at the time.According to Cara Appelhans, who was in jail and being interviewed on unrelated crime charges, told a WPD detective that Callaway and Pearson allegedly had driven to her house about 3:30 a.m. on Friday, July 25 in a borrowed Dodge Durango with shotguns and rifles wrapped in a blanket in their trunk.Appelhans told the detective that they told her the guns were taken from a man’s house that was taken to the hospital and was dying. They then allegedly took some guns to Wichita where some of them were sold.Another witness said she let Callaway and Pearson borrow the Durango and knew of a gun at her residence that Callaway was holding.On Aug. 26, the daughter of the elderly man said three forged checks had shown up on her Dad’s account at Security State Bank.Pearson was arrested on Sept. 18, after an intensive investigation that included two witnesses who said both Pearson and Callaway were involved with the sale of two guns in Wichita which allegedly was owned by the elderly man.Callaway was once at large but was eventually apprehended in November. Watson said it is common practice to have separate trials for defendants who are charged for the same alleged crime.On Thursday, Pearson will also be facing charges of criminal trespassing, a Class B misdemeanor; aggravated assault, a level 7 felony; and aggravated failure to appear stemming from an alleged incident at Michigan Apartments on April 26, 2013. Pearson is accused of attacking another person with a frying pan.She was also charged for failing to show up for court on May 23 – 30 days after her arrest with the above charge. She was not apprehended until July 29, 2013, according to court documents.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Week 10 NFL DFS Picks: Best value players, sleepers for FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy football lineups

first_imgWEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPPNFL DFS Picks Week 10: QB sleepers, valuesKyler Murray, Cardinals at Buccaneers (DraftKings $6,500 | FanDuel $7,700)There’s a reason why this game has one of the highest totals on the slate. After getting off to a surprisingly-strong defensive start, the Buccaneers defense has faded under the guidance of coordinator Todd Bowles. To highlight that, know that an average of 68.3 total points per game have been scored over the past six Buccaneers games. That’s not a coincidence — it’s a result of Tampa Bay’s willingness to let Jameis Winston sling the ball all over the field, which creates turnovers and opportunities for the other team to capitalize on. The Cardinals play at the fastest pace in the league (27.65 seconds between plays) and the Bucs have allowed 293.5 passing yards per game (second-highest in NFL), which creates the perfect recipe for Murray to have a huge fantasy day. Philip Rivers, Chargers at Raiders (DraftKings $5,500 | FanDuel $7,500)No team has given up more passing yards per game than the  Raiders (297.5), and Rivers has his full complement of offensive weapons healthy to support him. In his first game under new offensive coordinator Shane Steichen, Rivers went 21-for-28 for 294 yards. While he didn’t have a touchdown in that contest, it’s hard to imagine Oakland being able to contain Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Hunter Henry, Austin Ekeler, and Melvin Gordon, all of whom can make an impact in the passing game. If you’re playing in contests that include the Thursday night game, Rivers looks good.Ryan Tannehill, Titans vs. Chiefs (DraftKings $5,100 | FanDuel $7,200)With Patrick Mahomes (knee) expected back in Week 10, Ryan Tannehill is purely a game-script target. Assuming that the Chiefs’ offense clicks, the Titans will likely have to score a good amount of points to keep up. Further, as displayed multiple times in his career, including last week when he rushed for 38 yards and a touchdown, Tannehill can be a dual threat. Since taking over as the starter, Tannehill’s pass attempts have increased (from 29 to 33 to 39). That might not be a coincidence.WEEK 10 NON-PPR RANKINGSQuarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWeek 10 DraftKings, FanDuel Picks: RB sleepers, valuesMelvin Gordon, Chargers at Raiders (DraftKings $4,600 | FanDuel $6,600)It’s safe to say that Gordon is a fan of new offensive coordinator Shane Steichen. Against the Green Bay Packers in Week 9, Gordon rushed the ball 20 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns and also caught three-of-four targets for 29 more yards. It was the first glimpse of the Pro Bowl version of himself that we’ve seen this season, and this is one of the more egregious mispricings of the week (on DraftKings especially). He will be chalky but has massive upside.Devin Singletary, Bills at Browns (DraftKings $5,000 | FanDuel $6,700)It finally happened. Singletary took over lead back duties in Buffalo (at least for last week). He broke out in Week 9, carrying the ball 20 times for 95 yards and a touchdown while catching three passes for 45 yards. Meanwhile, Frank Gore carried the ball 11 times for an ineffective 15 yards. At this point, it seems logical for Singletary to see the lion’s share of the snaps at running back for the Bills considering his explosive upside. While Gore might steal snaps in short-yardage and goal-line situations, expect Singetary to continue his surge against the dumpster fire that is the Browns.Joe Mixon, Bengals vs. Ravens (DraftKings $4,700 | FanDuel $6,100)So far this season, Joe Mixon has 320 rushing yards on 3.2 yards per carry and no rushing touchdowns for the winless Bengals. That will keep his ownership down, regardless of his price. While he has three receiving touchdowns (19 catches for 110 yards), his overall numbers have been awful due to a combination of a horrendous offensive line and negative game scripts. Although the Ravens are decent against the run, the Bengals are starting rookie quarterback Ryan Finley and are also getting back wideout A.J. Green. That could lead to some more balance for Cincinnati’s offense, which is something that Mixon desperately needs to finally break out. MORE WEEK 10 DFS: Stacks | Lineup BuilderFanDuel, DraftKings Picks Week 10: WR sleepers, valuesJuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers vs. Rams (DraftKings $5,800 | FanDuel $6,800)While Smith-Schuster could see shadow coverage from Jalen Ramsey, he’s the unquestioned No. 1 wideout in Pittsburgh and could benefit from a pass-first game script if the Rams get out to an early lead. At just $5,800 on DraftKings, he has massive upside and will likely come in at very low ownership considering he recorded just three catches on five targets for 16 yards in last week’s victory over the Colts. As seen many times in the past, Smith-Schuster has elite jump-ball skills and can make circus catches. Mason Rudolph will likely look his way, and if there’s true man-to-man coverage against him with no help over the top, he always is a touchdown threat even against an elite corner. All it takes is a couple big plays for him to pay off his price tag.Christian Kirk, Cardinals at Buccaneers (DraftKings $5,200 | FanDuel $5,700)Assuming that Kyler Murray will be able to put together a huge outing in the air, Kirk will likely be targeted a lot. He’s a great tournament play since he had a dud last time out (two catches on five targets for eight yards). However, he had double-digit target games in three of the five contests before that and has slate-breaking upside. He’s a stellar option on this slate.Jamison Crowder, Jets vs. Giants (DraftKings $5,000 | FanDuel $6,500)The Jets may be an absolute mess, but the Sam Darnold-Jamison Crowder connection is real (if you recall, Crowder was targeted 17 times by Darnold in Week 1). Last week, Crowder got off to a hot start and finished with eight catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. Look for him to see a high volume again at a very fair price tag across the industry in Week 10. WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 10 NFL DFS Picks: TE sleepers, valuesMike Gesicki, Dolphins at Colts (DraftKings $3,100 | FanDuel $5,300)Preston Williams (knee) and Mark Walton (suspension) won’t be suiting up for the Dolphins in Week 10, which means that running back Kalen Ballage should see most of the running back snaps, DeVante Parker should see additional targets and Gesicki could be in store for a huge outing in what could be a concentrated offense overall. As seen last week (six catches on six targets for 95 yards), he can produce when given a more prominent workload. Assuming that Ryan Fitzpatrick will air it out quite a bit based on the presumed game script in this contest, Gesicki has double-digit target upside.Greg Olsen, Panthers at Packers (DraftKings $3,600 | FanDuel $5,100)While Olsen hasn’t exactly established a consistent connection with Kyle Allen yet, he still remains a viable option based on his price tag across the industry. He’s seen 14 targets and has amassed 105 yards in his last three games combined, which could be worse at a weak position.BetQL, RotoQL’s sister product, simplifies the research process for sports bettors by equipping them with real-time line movements, value bets of the day and meaningful team trends. Check it out here!Week 10 NFL DFS values: D/ST sleepersBrowns D/ST vs. Bills (DraftKings $2,500 | FanDuel $3,500) At this point in the NFL season, we have a general gauge of which teams and players are in exploitable NFL DFS situations. Since the major Week 10 tournaments were released while the Week 9 slate was occurring on both DraftKings and FanDuel, there are a number of advantageous value plays to consider. After a Jaylen Samuels chalk week, there isn’t an obvious free-square play this Sunday (unless Le’Veon Bell is out), but all of the following values/sleepers have massive daily fantasy football upside. Let’s get into it. Before we break down top Week 10 value plays, please note that the picks and analysis below is provided by the industry-leading DFS experts at RotoQL  Find out why 100,000 DFS players trust RotoQL to build lineups. Optimize, find value plays, and increase your chances of cashing today!  While rostering struggling defenses is never fun, the Browns have a couple factors working in their favor in Week 10. First, they’re playing a must-win game. At 2-6, their season is essentially hanging in the balance. Secondly, they’re playing in front of their home crowd. Finally, Josh Allen has proven to be turnover-prone in his career. Don’t actively target this unit, but you can do a lot worse in this general price range on both sites.Jets D/ST vs. Giants (DraftKings $2,700 | FanDuel $3,900)Similar to Jameis Winston, Giants quarterback Daniel Jones routinely cripples his team’s chances by turning the ball over. While the Jets defense has the ability to give up a lot of points on a weekly basis, anytime Jones takes the field, the chance of a pick-six or scoop-and-score makes the opposing defense viable.last_img read more
