With Root calmly accumulating, the Windies needed to halt Roy's charge but a top edge drifted away from Thomas in the breeze and Holder failed to grab a reaction caught-and-bowled on 82. Holder also dismissed any criticism of Chris Gayle , who made 135, defending the slow start to his innings. "He has done a lot for us in the last couple of years and it is good to see him fit and playing so I expect a really good showing from him, he is up to the challenge as well".

Guardiola said: "I was surprised that when (Antonio) Conte won the title and they lost one or two games at the beginning of the (next) season, people started to say he was going to be sacked".

The forum noted that the state of Pakistan is not involved in any way, means or form in the said incident.

Harper has been linked to the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Francisco Giants, and is expected to choose his destination soon and is expected to sign a deal even larger than Machado's. The Padres and the Chicago White Sox have been linked to Harper, too, though it seems highly unlikely that Harper would sign with them. But in the end we went after the guy and we didn't get him.
It's not easy because on the pitch we have no time at the moment, but we are trying to talk to the players, to avoid some mistakes by video. When asked if he was anxious about the fans' reaction during the game, Sarri responded: "No, I am anxious about the results".

When he was asked whether he believes she should come back, Danny said: "Yes, I do".

The Padres seem to be making a strong push for Manny Machado . The veteran pitcher is certain the outfielder will improve their team but is certain they already have what it takes to win this year. Maybe owners, from markets big and small, are exhausted of getting burned by free agents. But this all makes us wonder ... just what the heck are teams waiting for? Alonso is Machado's brother-in-law and Jay is a long-time friend of the 26-year-old shortstop.
This means the field will be reduced from 144 to 120 players, the victor will receive a three-year exemption instead of the usual two years, and prize money will rise $1.9 million to $9.3 million.

Among those supporters is ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit, who gave his thoughts on Murray's announcement.

San Francisco is the latest team to join the Harper fray, following the Padres, while the Yankees remain disinterested despite Aaron Judge's willingness to get Harper fitted for pinstripes . That was sometime around October 29.

LeBron James is the other captain and has the first pick when they draft from the pool of starters because he received more votes. "Pop is going to tell me I can only play him two minutes", James said , likely only half-seriously.
