Month: August 2016

2016 Could be Winston’s Breakout Year:

Jameis Winston’s rookie year was not much to write home about. Sure, he threw for over 4,000 yards and had 22 touchdown passes, with a five TD performance against the Philadelphia Eagles. On the flip side, he coughed up 15 interceptions — including one on the very first pass of his pro career — and ended up with a won-loss record of 6-10. His early performance in the recent scrimmage against Philadelphia may have also caused concern among the Bucs faithful. Tampa Bay went three and out in its first drive. On its next drive, Fletcher Cox grabbed the ball from Winston and almost took it into the end zone for a score.

The third drive of the exhibition went much better for Winston and company. He took the Buccaneers 79 yards down field with a no-huddle offense, and connected with Russell Shepard for a 26-yard TD.

Tampa Bay quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian said he is starting to see Winston’s focus and off-season conditioning pay off. The former Florida State star dropped 20 pounds since January and has put in more time to improving his conditioning and footwork. With a full NFL season under his belt, Bajakian said Winston is much more comfortable running the Bucs offense and is developing better chemistry with his receivers. Whereas last year it was all about learning the playbook, this year Winston is putting more effort into maintaining the tempo of the offense and reading the other team’s defense. One of the big helps with this has been Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Mike Smith, who has been throwing numerous schemes at Winston to see how he deals with them.

Tampa Bay is pinning its hopes on Winston to turn around the franchise’s fortunes. Your text to link… Since winning Super Bowl XXXVII in the 2002 season, the Bucs have been to the post-season only twice, in 2005 and 2007, and lost both times in the wildcard playoffs. Their last winning season came in 2010, when they went 10-6.

Rays Avoid Sweep by Pummeling Yankees

It is no secret that the 2016 campaign for the Tampa Bay Rays has been one to forget. The team is buried in last place with no shot whatsoever of contending for the playoffs. One of the few bright spots this year for the Rays occurred in the finale of their four-game series at Yankee Stadium. The Rays had dropped the first three games of the series. However, the Rays were not going to go quietly and allow themselves to be swept out of town.

Three turned out to be the lucky number for the Rays in this game. Nick Franklin and Corey Dickerson both blasted long balls that were good for three runs each. Third baseman Evan Longoria also helped the cause with a double that drove in three runs. The Rays had been struggling mightily offensively all season. However, they took all of their frustrations out on Luis Severino. The Yankee starter was lit up during his brief outing where he left the game with one out remaining in the fourth inning. During that time, he gave up seven earned runs on eight hits. The poor performance earned Severino a trip back to the minor leagues after the game. 2016 has been a huge disappointment for Severino. The Yankees had very high hopes that he would be one of the key contributors to their rotation. However, a 7.19 earned run average made it impossible to keep him on the major league roster, let alone in the rotation. However, the Yankees are not worried. They know that Severino is young. There is still time for him to work out his problems and be a solid contributor for the Yankees in the future.

The pitching for the Rays was overshadowed by the massive offensive explosion. Jake Odorizzi gave a solid performance that saw him pitch six innings and only give up three earned runs. Floro, Garton and Colome each pitched single innings where they did not allow a run. Rays manager Kevin Cash likes what he has seen from Odorizzi this year. He has been able to overcome adversity to consistently deliver quality starts all year. He has definitely been one of the pleasant surprises for the Rays in a season where few things have gone right.

The Excellent Benefits of Shea Butter

The history of shea butter is fascinating and most people do not realize that they probably use this product in some form or another every day. It’s use goes back to Ancient Egypt where it was used for wind and sun protection of the skin and hair.

Goettl air conditioning helps an elderly woman stay in her home

Las Vegas is an incredible hot place to live. In the summer, the heat can become almost unbearable. If you are living without air conditioning in Las Vegas, then you may struggle to even make it through the day. Recently, an elderly woman was struggling to survive the Las Vegas heat.

Jean Jackson is an extremely active 94-year-old. She has lived in Las Vegas for many years, and she considers the Vegas area to be her home. Recently, people in the area discovered that Jean’s air conditioning was falling apart. Jean was depending on two small window units to air condition her home. The window units were barely functioning, and the heat was becoming unbearable. She was living in a small one-bedroom trailer, but the air conditioning simply could not keep up. Eventually, the two window units gave out, and Jean thought she would be stuck in the Nevada heat for years to come. Her air conditioning units could not be replaced because they did not exist anymore. Unfortunately, her home could not support a larger unit without being completely rewired.

The Nevada heat is extremely dangerous for seniors. The CDC notes that seniors do not easily recover from major changes in body temperature. Jackson was definitely vulnerable to the heat in Las Vegas. She has been hospitalized with heat stroke several times in the past. When her unit died, the paramedics recommended that she move to a retirement home. Fortunately, Goettl air conditioning intervened. They created a custom mini-split system to help cool her house throughout the summer. Goettl is a great company, and they were happy to help keep her in the home.

The summer heat is unbearable at times, but Goettl air conditioning is happy that they could intervene. Jean Jackson will get to stay in her home for years to come.


Archer and Rays Sweep Away San Diego

Tampa Bay Rays ace Chris Archer has had a nightmare season in 2016. He had been one of the best pitchers in baseball for the past three seasons. He has not been able to string together the consistently great performances in 2016 like he has in the past. However, he showed Rays fans the type of pitcher he is still capable of being by shutting out the San Diego Padres. Archer put together one of his best starts of the season. He held the Padres scoreless for 7 1/3 innings. He maintained his velocity deep into the game.

The 2-0 win for the Rays was the fourth straight for the team that is currently in last place in the American League East. It also completed a sweep of San Diego in what has also been a year to forget for the Padres. Rays manager Kevin Cash said that he is proud of the way his team has been playing during the past four games. He believes that the Rays have more talent than their bad record would indicate. He also added that the best is yet to come for some of the Rays young players.

Archer accomplished something in this start that he had not done so far this season. It was the first time in 2016 that Archer has held an opponent scoreless for a minimum of seven innings. Archer was grateful for the standing ovation that he received from the Tampa Bay crowd as he was removed from the game. He registered nine strikeouts during the game. Kevin Cash also was pleased with his team’s ability to win a close game after winning a few blowouts recently.

Alex Colome came on to nail down the save for the Rays. He had to get more than three outs to do it. This was the first time since the third of June that Colome was called upon to pitch more than one inning to get a save. Both of the Rays runs were driven in by Brad Miller on a home run he hit in the first inning. Christian Friedrich pitched very well in defeat. He only surrendered two earned runs in 6 2/3 innings of work. This game continued the Padres five-game losing streak.

Economic Decline In The Next Four Months? According To Kyle Bass, Perhaps

Kyle Bass has made a prediction that there’s a 40% to 50% chance America will experience recession in the next four months due to conditions in China currently. China has a credit bubble that’s been expanding for ten years. Collapse is imminent–according to Bass, within the next two to three years–he just doesn’t know exactly when it’s going to happen. In the meantime, he seems to be doing his dead-level best to insinuate that China’s on rocky ground and future investments could see the fallout as a result. Thinking about this critically, it seems Bass is teetering. He also said it’s unlikely China would have a “Lehman Brothers” moment like that seen in the United States from the 2008 financial crisis. Still, 40% to 50%? Binary–consisting of two–choices have better odds than that. I.E.: the flip of a coin. 50% is half; so approximately 50% of the time, heads or tails will fall. In that light, there’s a 50% chance of an economy tanking at any time, anywhere. Did the Japanese expect Fukushima’s meltdown? Was that good for the economy? Such a figure must be assumed going into a fiscal year for solid investment practice to begin with. Kyle Bass has essentially said nothing here, but the tone of it would encourage investors to curtail their Chinese investiture.

The motivation behind this seems to be Bass’ investments. Currently he’s got $1 billion invested in a bet that US currency will succeed when this bubble implodes–and that sounds great! Except, if Bass is forcing the implosion early, and the fallout affects the US economy–well he wins, but America does not. If an implosion is going to happen, it should be curtailed and prepared for, not forced.

Kyle Bass does have a long history of controversial dealings like this. From CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs, which hoodwinks the sick into forcing stock-drops Kyle Bass can then short-sell, to his relationship with Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of Argentina (a known socialist despot), his decisions definitely have an edge to them.
Kyle Bass is a controversial figure indeed, and that should be taken into consideration.

Tampa Bay Running Backs Take a Pass

Bucs running backs will not be passing up chances to catch the ball because it’s part of head coach Dirk Koetter’s offensive scheme this year.

This was evident in Tampa’s first preseason game against the Eagles, where 5 running backs were involved in the passing game. It would no doubt have been 6, if Charles Sims hadn’t sat out due to injury. Russell Hansbrough had 3 catches for 24 yards, and Peyton Barber had 2. The rookies were joined by second-year-man Storm Johnson with 2 and Mike James and Doug Martin with 1 each. Just those 5 running backs made up 119 of 328 total passing yards.

The preseason is not always a good indicator of the whole year, but it might be noted that Doug Martin and Charles Sims made 84 receptions last year between them. And with a team loaded with sticky hands, who wouldn’t feature the passing game?

Koetter has also made it clear that he’s having his backs work on catching. “We personally don’t even like to look for backs that can’t catch or don’t catch well,” he said. “I think catching is something that can be improved…We’re going to throw the ball to our running backs.”

Against Philadelphia, Jameis Winston’s touchdown throw to wr Russell Shepard was set up by a short pass to Mike James, who carried the ball to the Eagles 26-yard-line. Additional reliable receivers will have to be a big asset for the Bucs. Backfield starters will probably be Doug Martin and Charles Sims. Last year, Martin gained 1,402 yards, and second-year player Sims totaled 529 But there will be a spot for a third tailback. Although fourth-year player Mike James’ numbers are not great, he might have a shot at it if he can make big plays.

Winston was happy with the passing game. He pointed out that in practice the Bucs defense was able to shut down the team’s screens, but those same screens worked against the Eagles. This may bode well for the offense and also the defense, which has some ability and besides may not be left on the field all game.

So the Bucs plan this year is to leave opposing defenses pass-teurized.

Buccaneers Reveal New Team Helmet

The Buccaneers are back for another action-packed season in the NFL, but when they hit the field this year, they’ll do so sporting new and improved helmet and logo designs.
