How can the Yankees and Mets fare in the short season

Gerrit Cole became one of the most sought-after free agent pitchers in the history of the last offseason after a dominant year with Houston.

But even though the first half of 2019 was very good, that was what Cole did in the second half of the year which established the lefty player as the main target of the game on the market.

After going 9-5 with 3.09 ERA and 1,020 WHIP in 19 starts before the All-Star Game, Cole failed in the second half, ending with 11-0 with 1.70 ERA and 0.723 WHIP during his last 14 outings in the regular season.

The 2020 season will not look like anyone’s anticipated, if it is even played, and players will not have the normal six months of the regular season to prove their worth. Instead, it will be a 60-game, nine-week sprint where a slow start won’t be easy to get rid of.

The Yankees and Mets are entering this shortened season, abbreviated first by the COVID-19 pandemic then labor disputes, with high hopes and having players who seem fit to get started quickly and others who usually build momentum during a full season – Luxury that won’t they have this year.

Although the differences in Cole’s statistics last year are striking, it’s not surprising Yankees’s new aces are usually very good for most of this year, but he will now be assigned to have a large contract weight and a new environment to deal with.

On the other side of town, Robinson Cano is usually consistent from start to finish, but that didn’t happen in his first difficult season with the Mets, when he only had .646 OPS in the first half before rebounding with an OPS of 0.880 in the second round.

Those ugly first few months might be linked to a new environment, but Cano and the Mets will not be able to start a wobbly start from the gates in 2020 from the second baseman.

Even Jacob deGrom, the back-to-back winner of the NL Cy Young Awards, took about a month to find its form a year ago before it became almost unbeatable during the latter part of the season. In his first Cy Young season, deGrom had no such problems, but the lefty player finished last April with a 4.85 ERA after three matches were immediately below standard.

Marcus Stroman, solid throughout 2019 when he was traded from Toronto to the Mets, had 4.14 ERAs during his career in the first round, a figure which dropped to 3.33 in the second round.

Steven Matz started with a rough start last year, as did Jeurys Familia in the bullpen. Matz was significantly better at the end of the year and Familia showed signs of improvement in the second half, too.

In The Bronx, Judge Harun is traditionally stronger at the beginning, often because of an injury at the end of the year. How he recovered from the broken ribs he faced in spring training will affect his production.

In Yankees’ rotation, JA. Happ has a 4.35 ERA career before the All-Star break. This dropped to 3.60 in the second half – and this is the trend he showed in the previous two seasons. Happ had many reasons to try to change the narrative, because he could become a free agent for this offseason.

With all the other factors that will affect this wild year, it’s impossible to predict whether the previous trend will last. The players are around two weeks from Opening Day when spring training closes, and they will now get around three weeks to get ready again – and that is only if everything goes well.

Mutirão Opens To Negotiation Of Individuals' Overdue Debts - Português (Brazil)

September is a very important and visible month for deaf people, with three dates that raise awareness and celebrate achievements that are part of the entire community’s trajectory and struggle. These are: – International Sign Language Day, September 23; – Day of the Deaf, 26 September; and Libra National Interpreter and Translator Day on September 30th. With a focus on the deaf community, the Department of Education is promoting several initiatives in this area.

The first is aimed at changing the scenario of educational and language policy based only on the inclusive perspective of including a deaf student in the school environment without guaranteeing procedures that enhance accessibility in his education. The National Guidelines for Bilingual Education for the Deaf integrate all stages of basic education and are based on the promotion of bilingual curricula and pedagogical practices for the deaf: Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) and written Portuguese.

Through the Department of Special Education, the MEC coordinates with interested municipalities the construction, renovation or expansion of bilingual schools for the deaf. To date, 11 locations in Brazil have shown interest in the project. To complement this phase, the Libras National Textbook Program (PNLD) provides accessible formats to deaf students and public school teachers of basic education in the country.

In the academic world, in partnership with universities, advanced training courses are offered for teachers, managers and professionals who want to work with bilingual education for the deaf. Thanks to the projects of various institutions, there are currently 3,520 vacancies for teaching the deaf.

INES

Another important date: The National Institute for Education for the Deaf (Ines) turns 165 on the same Libra and the Deaf Day, September 26th. Within the structure of the Ministry of Education, the Institute stands out as a national reference in the field of deafness, necessary to support the formulation of public policies, and then for their implementation in the field. The Institute works to promote education for deaf children, youth and adults.

Sarah’s complaint comes after the league filed a complaint against a Manchester United player for aggression against Jake in the Manchester team’s match against Everton on April 9 last season in the Premier League. After an unsuccessful result, the Portuguese dropped a fan’s mobile phone on the way to the locker room.

According to Sarah, she and her son once again became victims of offenses in social networks after the announcement of the complaint against the attacker.

“People are following me, saying that I am rebelling again, but I didn’t know anything about it. The case should have been heard six months ago. My son talks every day about what happened to him. He still hasn’t returned his phone,” he said.

Jake’s mother still asks how the player manages to sleep at night after what happened. “Let’s hope he finally gets the right punishment. He can’t keep getting away with it. Your behavior is unacceptable…” Sarah concluded.

Marseille in California.  ″Where the Portuguese is, there is Portugal″

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
