New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole has found himself in a few tumultuous positions in the past, including when the Houston Astros were caught cheating by hitting trash cans to signal specific pitching hitters.

Cole did not benefit from this strategy, given that he was on the opposite side of the ball, but he is still involved as a prop and used the spider tack extensively throughout his career before his 2021 ban. .

Gerrit Cole of the Yankees certainly won’t be happy to hear these comments:

Toronto ace Alek Manoah spoke with Serge Ibaka on his show “How Hungry Are You”, who was asked who the biggest cheater in the league is. Manoah didn’t shy away from hitting Cole, which isn’t surprising since the two had beef last season after Manoah hit Aaron Judge.

“I made a pitch, obviously it hit the judge,” Manoah said. “Obviously I looked at him and said, ‘Man, I’m not trying to do this. I think he got it. I think if Gerrit wants to do something, he can go past the Audi sign (in front of the Yankees dugout) next time.

Cole and many MLB pitchers have used spider tack, so blaming him alone is a little weird. At 32, he still had a strong 2022 season, earning a 3.50 ERA, 11.53 strikeouts per nine, 78.2% base rate and 42 rushed ball rate. .4% over 200.2 innings.

During the playoffs, Gerrit recorded a 2.95 ERA, completely dominating for the most part. Nonetheless, while his numbers have seen a slight reduction in effectiveness, naming him the biggest cheater is certainly out of place.

“He cheated. He used a lot of sticky stuff to improve his pitches. And he got called out about it,” Manoah said.

I highly doubt Cole would respond to these comments in any way, but rather let his work speak for itself.

Nikolaj Ehlers’ injury saga took another turn on Saturday, and not for the better.

Content of the article

The 26-year-old will be out indefinitely and is expected to undergo sports hernia surgery next week, Winnipeg Jets head coach Rick Bowness announced ahead of Saturday night’s game between Winnipeg and the Penguins. of Pittsburgh at the Canada Life Center.

Content of the article

“Details are still being finalized,” Bowness said. “We won’t know how long he’ll be out until they get in there and see what they’re dealing with.”

Ehlers has missed the last 13 games with an undisclosed lower body injury after being lame in Winnipeg’s 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on Oct. 17.

The Dane took the first morning skate lines in Denver two days later before stepping out and was initially listed as a game time decision.

Last Wednesday was the first time he had skated since.

“After 7-10 days, I felt like progress was happening,” Bowness said. “It was slower progress, no doubt, but we didn’t push and gave him some extra time, hoping to try and avoid that. We gave it as much time as possible and there comes a point where, ‘Hey, there’s something a little more than we can find right now.’

Bowness said they expect Ehlers to be back this season.

Ehlers’ expected long delay away from action adds to an already burgeoning roster in the team’s infirmary.

Fellow winger Mason Appleton underwent wrist surgery earlier this week and is expected to miss two to three months while recovering. Striker Morgan Barron is also out after his own wrist surgery which came with a 4-5 week absence.

“What we’ve been doing lately, oh I don’t know…we’ve tightened up the defense, and that’s going to keep us in games,” Bowness said. “The guys who stepped up and played those roles did an exceptional job. We need it. They are among the first nine, they are not easy to replace. Do we miss them? Absolutely we miss them. It changes all the formations of the lines and it changes the roles. And sometimes when that happens, you put a guy in a role that normally wouldn’t be.

“Give our strikers a lot of credit because all the guys we’ve asked to adjust their roles, their minutes and even the guys they normally play with, they’ve all done a great job. That brings us back to having to play this team defense to keep us in games which we have cleaned up a lot in the last 10 games.

On defense, the Jets are still without Logan Stanely, who is out with a foot injury, and Dylan DeMelo, who will miss his second straight game Saturday with an upper-body injury.

Bowness said they hope DeMelo can return against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.

“It’s nothing long term,” Bowness said. “We hope he comes back. He skated (Saturday morning) but not ready to go. We hope he will be back on Monday evening.

Toronto Mayor John Tory on Thursday appealed to the provincial and federal governments for immediate financial assistance, warning that without it the city could face “unprecedented” tax hikes and service cuts “extreme”.

Content of the article

In a letter to Premier Doug Ford and Federal Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland, Tory said the city needs financial commitments by the end of the month to fill gaps related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Content of the article

He said Toronto is facing an operating budget shortfall of $815 million this year directly related to the pandemic.

Meanwhile, he said the city could face budget pressures of nearly $1.5 billion next year before factoring in any property tax increases or funding commitments from other orders. of government.

“Given our limited options to raise revenue and our inability to manage budget deficits, we do not have the fiscal capacity to absorb these massive shocks to our system,” Tory wrote in the letter, dated Wednesday. and shared publicly on Thursday.

Content of the article

Tory noted that the city has received more than $3 billion combined from the provincial and federal governments since 2020.

During that time, the city had also introduced $1.6 billion in “savings, cost mitigation efforts and other offsets,” Tory said.

But without more help, Tory warned the city could also face cuts to programs and its capital budget, which he said could ‘eliminate thousands of jobs’ and ‘threaten’ the economic recovery of the city.

In the letter, Tory highlighted campaign and budget promises made by both governments to provide municipalities with COVID-19 financial support.

“We urgently need a commitment from the federal and provincial governments to support our continued recovery from the pandemic,” he wrote.

This year’s pandemic-related budget shortfall is a combination of lost transit revenue and rising housing costs, as well as lower returns on other streams such as parking fees and taxes. hotel, Tory said.

Representatives for Ford and Freeland did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Tory’s letter.

Like many people, partners Deborah Corner and Jo-Anne Bergeron were laid off during the pandemic. They had always dreamed of opening their own business but didn’t know what to do. It turns out that the answer to their entrepreneurial riddle was in their lap – on a wooden puzzle board.

“Doing puzzles gives me a sense of calm and organization, and I can let my mind wander as I work to complete the puzzle,” says Corner. “I often launch a podcast or an audiobook if I’m working solo, or Jo and I chat and brainstorm over a glass of wine if we’re working together.”

(Find out how a warehouse in North York keeps the art of movie posters alive.)

Bergeron’s mother instilled in him a love of the hobby, and Corner and Bergeron had an entire table dedicated to the puzzle at a previous home. “I love the challenge of putting together a puzzle,” says Bergeron. “I’ll choose one that interests me, then I put the box aside and work on it without referring to the image. Deb thinks that’s a little crazy.

“But I find it so satisfying to figure out what goes where without any clues. And then, piece by piece, section by section, a beautiful picture emerges.

They found it difficult to buy truly spectacular puzzles, so they wondered, why not sell these beauties themselves? “We knew puzzles were growing in popularity during the pandemic, but it was hard to find unique, small-brand, modern puzzles in one space,” says Bergeron. “We wanted to deliver that with a focus on art and supporting new brands.”

They launched Puzzle Nerds as an online store in February 2021, then moved to a physical location at The Junction last September, opening Toronto‘s only store dedicated to puzzles. “We knew how beautiful (the store) could be, given the incredible artwork, and we had incredible feedback from our online customers about the assortment,” Corner said. “The puzzles on the shelf really speak for themselves.”

So, which puzzles are suitable for savvy puzzlers? Bergeron and Corner consider a few details: where a brand comes from, how available it is in Canada, whether it’s owned by a woman or a minority, and whether it’s Canadian or features Canadian art. The store features a nice array of local talent, including works by Darlene Kulig, who sells puzzles all over the world, and Arcadia Puzzles, which has Toronto and Canadian-themed options. (His “Toronto in Motion” is a fun illustration of landmarks like the CN Tower and Nathan Phillips Square, while “Canada, Hey!” is populated by Drake, Justin Bieber, Tim Hortons and the TTC.)

There’s a puzzle for everyone, from round puzzles and wooden puzzles to double-sided and gradient puzzles. There are micro puzzles (150 pieces in portable packaging) as well as huge 5,000 piece puzzles. “People like to do puzzles for all kinds of reasons,” says Corner. “Some people love challenges and problem solving, some are drawn to a particular image, and there’s such a sense of satisfaction in completing a puzzle.”

The store also offers puzzle-themed accessories, including puzzle piece jewelry by local artist Lisa Young Design. Serious puzzlers can also pick up puzzle glue, mats, trays, and sorters.

“Selling puzzles brings us joy, because we can provide a relaxing activity that stimulates the mind and is suitable for all ages. People often talk about unplugging and that’s a perfect way to do it,” says Bergeron. “We have couples who come looking for a date night activity. We have parents who come to get a puzzle for family time.

For Corner and Bergeron, working in the new store has another added benefit: hearing stories about the destinations of their puzzles. “It’s incredibly meaningful to us that people sometimes share who they’re buying a puzzle for and why,” Bergeron says. “It could be an elderly relative who is on their own, or they are sent across the country to a friend or loved one who is recovering from an illness. We love hearing about the amazing journeys some of these puzzles end on and the joy and comfort they can bring to others.

Miami Heat forward Caleb Martin has spoken about his one-game suspension due to an altercation in Saturday’s game against the Toronto Raptors.

Martin said he was “embarrassed” by her behavior.

“I didn’t really expect something like this,” Martin said. “I knew they were going to look into everything and find out the appropriate consequences. I don’t disagree with that.”

Martin later apologized even more.

“I was embarrassed last night,” Martin said. “I was embarrassed this morning by the way I handled things because I pride myself on being more professional than that. Anyone who plays sports knows their emotions run high, especially at the highest level. Sometimes that overflows.”

EXCLUSIVE: Lionsgate has won a bidding battle to acquire worldwide rights to MRCs Blackening, the horror-comedy flick that premiered in the Toronto Film Festival’s Midnight Madness segment last month and has become one of the hottest acquisition titles. The deal requires wide theatrical distribution, and Lionsgate is handling AFM sales. Deadline revealed that shortly after the premiere, three offers were on the table for worldwide rights. Those deals were just under $20 million, so imagine the deal was in that quarter.

Directed by Tim Story, co-written by Tracy Oliver and Dewayne Perkins, Blackening centers on a group of black friends who go away for the weekend only to find themselves trapped in a cabin with a killer who forces them to play a game with life or death consequences. The film is inspired by a 3Peat comedy sketch of the same name, written by Perkins, which aired on Comedy Central in 2018. The idea poses a reasonable question: since it seems that black characters are usually the first victims in movies horror, so what happens when all the characters are black?

Blackening is a hugely entertaining horror film that is scary while hilariously subverting the genre,” said Jason Constantine, Lionsgate President, Acquisitions and Co-Productions. “Tim Story, Tracy Oliver and Dewayne Perkins delivered a film that works on many levels – as big fans of the genre, they are able to stay true to convention while subverting it. We’re also thrilled to have MRC Film back then. that we bring the laughs and thrills of this movie to the audience.

MRC Film co-presidents Brye Adler and Jonathan Golfman said, “From the moment the idea of Blackening, we knew we had to make this movie. We were fortunate to work with Tim, Tracy, Dewayne and our incredibly talented cast of actors to bring this fun and original film to life. We’re thrilled to once again partner with our friends at Lionsgate and can’t wait for audiences to experience this film’s journey in theaters.

The Blackening stars Antoinette Robertson, Dewayne Perkins, Sinqua Walls, Grace Byers, X Mayo, Melvin Gregg, Jermaine Fowler, Yvonne Orji and Jay Pharoah, and is produced by Marcei A. Brown, Jason Clark, E. Brian Dobbins, Tracy Oliver, Tim Story and Sharla Sumpter Bridgett. Perkins serves as co-producer, with Vicky Story serving as associate producer.

The deal was brokered by Constantine, John Biondo, Grace Duplissea and Eda Kowan on behalf of Lionsgate.

You are not alone if you are currently sitting in the dark without being able to turn on your lights in Toronto.

Just minutes ago, Hydro One and Toronto Hydro confirmed they were responding to a “widespread outage” specifically affecting customers in the east.

According to Toronto Hydro’s outage map, the outages largely affect areas such as Regent Park, Cabbagetown and St. James Town, east of Yonge.

Map of Toronto Hydro outage pockets at 2 p.m.

There are also blackouts in Riverside near Carlaw and Queen and in the Danforth and Riverdale neighborhoods.

A second major outage was reported in the East Danforth area near Woodbine Avenue.

The Midtown outages affect over 5,000 customers while the Riverside pocket only affects areas with 51-500 customers and Riverdale with 1-50 customers.

The most recent outage was reported in the west around 1:20 p.m. in the Little Italy area.

Students at Metropolitan University of Toronto are also experiencing dark times.

Of course, as with most negative events in Toronto, customers have taken to social media to complain about their situation and see if they are the only ones in the dark.

And it looks like there’s going to be a few more hours of darkness as Toronto Hydro estimates restoration time between 6 and 7:20 p.m.

As of 1:45 p.m., no technicians were on site at any fault location, according to the map.

Good luck in Toronto.
