Dodgers’ daily search for optimal lineup doesn’t end with platoons

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start “We’ll see how he comes out of it tomorrow,” Roberts said. “The next progression is a four- or five-inning rehab start. Double-A or Triple-A, I’m not sure. But I think that’s kind of the plan.”Kershaw has never been a big fan of minor-league rehab assignments. In this case, however, he has not pitched in a game all spring and could need more than one to build up suitably for major-league action.“Honestly, I think we’re going to let Clayton drive it,” Roberts said. “We don’t know (how many rehab starts he might need). After one, he could feel good and feel he’s ready. He might feel he needs another one.“We’re at a point where we understand the long view. We want him to be healthy to help us and help himself. So I’m not concerned about it – we’ll kind of see how it goes.”ALSOLeft-hander Rich Hill (sprained MCL in his left knee) continues to throw on flat ground, wearing a knee brace. Roberts said he doesn’t know a timetable for Hill to throw off a mound.UP NEXTDiamondbacks (RHP Zack Godley) at Dodgers (RHP Kenta Maeda), Saturday, 6:10 p.m., SportNet LA (where available), 570 AM LOS ANGELES — Dodgers manager Dave Roberts had barely filled out the first lineup of the season Thursday when he was asked if there might be more lineup consistency this year.“We are going to move guys around. Our guys have done it for three years and we’re going to do it again,” he said.A record-setting eight home runs on Opening Day didn’t change his mind. With left-hander Robbie Ray starting the second game for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Roberts had Joc Pederson (two home runs and a double in the opener) and Max Muncy (one home run) on the bench. Corey Seager (another home run) was dropped to fifth in the order, a rare move for him.Roberts said he already had an idea of his lineups for each of the four games in the season-opening series and wasn’t going to change based on one explosive game. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “It’s part of having a plan,” he said. “Yeah, sometimes it can be hard not to deviate. I’m not saying I’m in a box. But it’s the second game of the season. You have to be able to stick to a plan for at least a couple games.”Seager has batted lower than third in the Dodgers’ lineup just 26 times in 357 career games – none since 2016. But Roberts said the move Friday was based on Seager’s history against Ray (3 for 23 with 13 strikeouts) and not a signal that Seager would move up and down the lineup based on the handedness of the opposing pitcher.“No … he doesn’t see Robbie Ray very well,” Roberts said. “So I think in this particular instance it makes sense. But outside of today, I don’t see him anywhere outside of second or third.”A.J. Pollock spent much of the Cactus League schedule batting leadoff and was expected to bat there against left-handers (with Pederson on the bench). But Roberts went with Kiké Hernandez (fresh off his two-homer game Thursday), ostensibly because of his history against Ray (8 for 30 with three home runs and six walks).The Dodgers start the season with only one true platoon – Chris Taylor replaced Pederson in left field. But Roberts made it clear the daily attempt to optimize matchups would continue to be reflected in a changing lineup. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img “It’s a different pitcher, a different day,” Roberts summarized before Friday’s game.KERSHAW PLANLeft-hander Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to take the next step Saturday in his throwing progression after being sidelined by shoulder discomfort during spring training. Kershaw will throw three simulated innings to Dodgers hitters Saturday afternoon.If everything goes well, a bullpen session will follow in a couple of days. The next step could be to pitch a minor-league game, perhaps as early as next week.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season last_img read more

 

#JaVotes2016: JLP father, PNP mother, baby in caught in the middle

first_img But Chevelle Gordon, the baby’s mother is a PNP supporter and thinks the child will follow her ways. As labourites and comrades mingle outside a polling station in Greenwich Farm, the contrast of young Bernard, dressed in green, resting across his mother’s orange clad chest could not be missed. Chevelle, however, said that the colour of her child’s shirt is merely coincidental. “Its not the father, is me put in him green. It nuh have nuttin fi do with it,’ she said. The PNP wears orange and the JLP wears green. The senior Bernard says green represents prosperity, and that with him being the head of the household his son will follow his lead. The PNP’s Simpson Miller is being challenged by the JLP’s Victor Hyde for the seat she has won since 1976. Bernard told The Gleaner that he expects Simpson Miller to win the constituency but is hopeful the JLP will win the general elections, which would give both him and his partner something to smile about later. Shellando Bernard believes his young son, six months old, Lionel, represents a green sprout in the People’s National Party dominated South West St Andrew. The elder Bernard, is one of the few hundred JLP voters in the constituency controlled by Portia Simpson Miller, the PNP president and Prime Minister of Jamaica.last_img read more

Industry Interview: Miles Hankins — The Composer Behind “Long Shot”

first_imgPB: Early in your career, you worked as a score reader with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, engaging with the likes of John Williams, Joshua Bell, and Christoph Eschenbach. Can you explain for our audience what the role of a score reader entails?MH: It’s a rare thing. I was new to L.A., working on a TV show at the time, and I was itching to do something different. The opportunity came up through a friend who worked for the L.A. Phil to be a score reader — you attend the rehearsals with the orchestra and conductor and you actually mark the score with cues, then you work with the video crew. You know how you watch a live performance on TV and they cut to the tuba player right before his solo? That’s some nerd like me, sitting with the camera crew and letting them know where the cues are coming up in the piece, so they know where to focus the camera.It was a really fun gig, and I was able to hang around huge talents and watch them work very intimately. Working alongside John Williams was definitely a highlight. I did that for a few summers, and every time, it was immensely rewarding. I had the best seat in the house for some truly amazing performances, back then. Now, when I go to Disney Hall or The Hollywood Bowl, I have to pay top dollar like everyone else!Cover image via Long Shot (Paramount).Looking for more industry interviews? Check these out.Industry Interview: CW Costume Designer Catherine AshtonIndustry Interview: “Whiplash” Production Designer Melanie JonesInterview: “My Dinner with Herve” Composer David NorlandThe Universal Language of Music: Interview with Composer Jacob YoffeeIndustry Insights: Behind the Scenes with Editor Nena Erb Miles Hankins offers insight into composing for film and television — as well as collaborating with musicians around the world.Composer Miles Hankins‘s career has spanned many feature and TV projects. We sat down with this prolific musical scribe to talk Rogen, reality, and real sports.PremiumBeat: Long Shot is getting great reviews as a funny piece that also explores deeper issues. How did you approach the score, and what kind of discussions did you have with the principal players about the tone and tenor of the film?Miles Hankins: In every great rom-com, there is a touching personal story. As the composers, Marco Beltrami and I have watched the film a lot. Getting to see it at SXSW and in NY was awesome — I have never seen a response so positive. People seem to love it. We always had a good feeling that people would like the film. Our main concern was that the score didn’t get in the way of the comedy — it’s hard to make music funny. The great film composer, Elmer Bernstein, said something to the effect of: “The trick is to score it sincerely and that will make it funnier.” We didn’t want to over-score or manipulate the viewers’ emotions, but rather stay out of the way of the story. We used a lot of different styles from indie folk guitar with hand percussion, and then more traditional orchestrations. We also leaned on a sense of grand sweeping patriotism (in places) since it is a political drama, and then there are some epic action scenes, so there were many things we looked to accomplish in the score.Being Serena via IMDBPB: You’ve done documentary projects for HBO: The Many Lives of Nick Buoniconti and Being Serena. These seem very different from your other work. How did you come to these projects?MH: I’m not a big sports guy, per se, but both of these projects were so special. Serena Williams is a personal hero of mine — I played tennis growing up. When I was approached, I wondered if I even knew how to set about a sports documentary musically. But the showrunners said, “That’s why we want you, because you come from the world of film.” This project wasn’t about tennis but about her becoming a mother. It was a very intimate look at a woman that we know as a fierce competitor and seeing another side to her. I brought in a vocalist and also explored different musical styles — from R&B to electronic music to string quartet. I was so happy to learn the project was nominated for a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition.The other film was about the NFL legend Nick Buoniconti. He was a character I was aware of. I went to University of Miami in undergrad and he had played for the Dolphins and was an iconic figure there. I found out his story . . . he’s going through CTE, a neurological disorder related to his playing days. So, he became this unlikely spokesperson for the condition, with a heart-wrenching personal story. I think it appealed to me because I was coming off A Quiet Place, which was so dark and intense — I just wanted something beautiful and lyrical to work on. We recorded the music in Europe, and I worked remotely from Los Angeles.A Quiet Place. Photo by Jonny Cournoyer. © 2018 Paramount Pictures. All rights reserved.PB: Is that unusual?MH: With today’s technology and the magic of the internet, it’s actually quite easy to operate a remote session abroad. We always love to use our peerless local AFM musicians here in LA, but that’s a decision the production companies, networks, and studios make for us. When we can’t stay in town, we’re fortunate to have access to a wide variety of gifted musicians abroad as well. And it’s always exciting to hear different perspectives on the music, from around the world.Long Shot premiere.PB: You created additional music for A Quiet Place, The Snowman, and The Shallows working with Composer Marco Beltrami. Obviously, collaborating on three projects, you have a good working relationship. Can you tell us about that process?MH: A Quiet Place was a challenging project for numerous reasons. Almost no dialogue, so the catch was to find the music in the film where we supported the material, but was the least intrusive. We often struggled to find the right balance. I remember the moment when it clicked. We had tried a million things. We had hired a huge orchestra to experiment with all kinds of aleatoric gestures; we were throwing as much paint on the canvas as possible to see what would work; and finally, at the end of all this experimentation, we broke through to something and finally began to hear it. And it felt right.I met Marco through Buck Sanders — I think on Fantastic Four — I jumped in on that one, and it was a really high-pressure scenario, and we found we worked well together.There isn’t really a set process. We usually watch the film (or what there is to view at that point) and discuss how best to play it. The director will give us their idea of instruments and orchestrations. Marco will go to work writing and we will experiment with ideas, as well. We often work separately and then come together. We’ll share thoughts, share files, and we’ll collaborate until we find what we are looking for. We’ll kick cues back and forth. Each project is different. All this time in Hollywood, you’d think it gets easier but it doesn’t — it’s like a unique puzzle — each film has a different sound, and once you find it, it’s a beautiful thing. Although it’s always challenging, it’s very satisfying when it clicks.Long Shot (via Paramount).PB: You’ve had a love of film and music since you were a kid. In fact, at 12, you were given a sound generator to create digital music and a canon video camera.MH: When the camcorder thing happened in the ’80s, my parents got one. And one afternoon, my sister and I took out the camera and decided to shoot something. That became what we would do — we would come up with scripts and get our friends over and put them in crazy outfits. But even before discovering the camera, movies were always a part of my life. My parents were huge film people — they loved the classics, and every Sunday night we would watch them. It always struck me (while watching them) how amazing the scores were, even before I was studying theory and harmony — I was hearing all this lush, sophisticated music from those classic films, which had such feeling and personality. I feel like that influence made it into Long Shot. There is a scene at a black tie dinner in Buenos Aires. We usually played the theme on acoustic guitar, but I rewrote it for that scene to sound Gershwin-esque — lush with a different harmony to call back to those classic films.Miles Hankins.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Tottenham boss Pochettino: We’ve toughened up since Man Utdby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino feels his players have become mentally stronger over the first-half of the season.Pochettino believes the temperament of his squad has improved following a dressing down at Old Trafford.He was agitated by players talking about winning the Premier League title after beating Manchester United 3-0 in August.”After our victory at Old Trafford, I was so disappointed with some of the comments, the way we assimilated the victory,” said Pochettino ahead of the Boxing Day clash with Bournemouth.”After that we improved a lot and learned. In football you always have to be respectful and talk on the pitch. We’re in a very good position — last 16 of the Champions League, semi-final of the Carabao Cup and third in the Premier League table.”I remember when we arrived it always was about how? How do we reduce the gap to the top? How can we be competitive in big games? How can we be consistent? How? How? How? After four-and-a-half years I think we’re in a very good position. But now the last step is the most difficult step. It looks so close but sometimes it’s not so close. That is why it’s tough to keep going.”In our first press conference after the World Cup I told you this is going to be one of the most difficult seasons for us. When many things were negative, when all the circumstances were not the best to start with… But we fought a lot and we took a massive challenge, fighting all together, and we’re doing a fantastic job.” last_img read more
