He was the owner and skipper of the Kelpie in 1914 and along with his sister Kitty and Foynes sailors George Cahill and Tom Fitzsimons they conveyed a second consignment of arms from Germany to St Tudwall’s Island, off the Welsh coast.The 600 rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammunition were transferred from there to the Chotah, owned and skippered by Limerick-born Sir Thomas Myles, then President of the Royal College of Surgeons, and were landed at Kilcoole, County Wicklow on August 1, 1914. A total of 15,000 rifles and 45,000 rounds of ammunition were landed in 1914.To honour these Irish nationalist activists, a commemorative booklet is being published by the Mount Trenchard Memorial Committee. The memorial plaque, to be unveiled this weekend, has been sculpted by Cliodhna Cussen.A shuttle bus will run this Sunday between the churches at Foynes and Loughill to the Mount Trenchard churchyard.

Bullpen-ing? Starter-ing? Postseason pitching is slowly bending toward middle ground

first_imgTuesday’s National League wild-card game between the Washington Nationals and Milwaukee Brewers was supposed to be a contrast in styles. On the surface, it was: Washington sent its three-time Cy Young Award winner, Max Scherzer, to the mound. Milwaukee countered with Brandon Woodruff, an All-Star in the first half who had pitched all of four innings the previous two months.By the time Brewers manager Craig Counsell announced his decision to start Woodruff, it hardly came as a surprise. Milwaukee burnished its reputation for successfully “bullpen-ing” its way through the playoffs a year ago, when it pushed the Dodgers to the brink in a seven-game NLCS. By Tuesday, no one expected Woodruff to pitch more than the four innings he did. The Brewers’ reputation preceded them.The surprise came on the other side. Scherzer pitched five innings. Stephen Strasburg, himself a Cy Young candidate after leading the National League in innings pitched, then made his first relief appearance of 2019. He threw the next three innings.By the end of the Nationals’ 4-3, come-from-behind victory, the difference between bullpen-ing and whatever the Nats did – call it “starter-ing” – never looked so thin. One team used four pitchers. The other used three. The game turned not on a strategy, but on a ninth-inning error. Trent Grisham, the Brewers’ rookie right fielder, joined the likes of Mickey Owen and Bill Buckner in October ignominy when he allowed Juan Soto’s bases-loaded single to slide under his glove. Dodgers’ Will Smith: ‘I feel like it’s been five years’ since his 2019 debut Harvard-Westlake alum Lucas Giolito throws no-hitter for White Sox Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Three years ago, Roberts stunned Nationals Park by using Clayton Kershaw to record the final two outs of Game 5 of the NLDS. Quietly and efficiently, Kershaw recorded his first career save. Afterward, I asked Dusty Baker, then the Nationals’ manager, whether we had just witnessed the beginning of a trend. “It’s not a trend that I’d like to be a part of any time,” Baker said. Consider it a wish granted.Now, there are signs that postseason swingmen are becoming the rule rather than the exception. Red Sox manager Alex Cora used 10 pitchers in the 2018 World Series. Only one, Rick Porcello, pitched exclusively as a starter. On Sept. 24, Sabathia made his first career relief appearance after 560 starts. Only Tom Glavine (682) had started more games in his career without pitching out of the bullpen. If Sabathia pitches as a reliever this month, perhaps no pitcher is immune to the hybridization of roles anymore.That’s still a far cry from turning nine innings into a relay race composed entirely of middle-distance men. In 2019, this future is not inevitable. Yet if the arc of pitching is bending further in that direction, we’ll find out in the weeks to come. Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield It’s dangerously easy to make inferences about the remainder of the postseason based on the first game. Yet even before Tuesday, the 10 postseason participants represented an interesting crossroads for the state of pitching strategy in 2019.The Dodgers, Astros, Nationals and Cardinals will latch their fortunes to their traditional starting rotations, which subdued opponents with stamina in the regular season. These teams employ starters who have combined to win eight Cy Young Awards.The Twins, Rays, Yankees and A’s were comparatively stronger in the bullpen. The Yankees’ CC Sabathia has won the Cy Young Award once; so has the Rays’ Blake Snell. No other pitcher employed by any of these teams has won the award. Each is more likely to copy the approach that worked so well for the Brewers in the 2018 NLCS. Thirteen pitchers divided that seven-game series so democratically that none pitched more than 10 innings by himself.The Braves, who have three talented but unproven starters (Mike Soroka, Mike Foltynewicz and Max Fried) behind veteran Dallas Keuchel (a former Cy Young Award winner himself), can take a hybrid approach to their series against the Cardinals. Regardless of which way they go, the difference between the two approaches is becoming blurry.This week, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts suggested he might engage in a bit of “starter-ing” himself. Rather than have Game 4 starter Rich Hill get his between-starts work in the bullpen, Roberts said Hill would be available to pitch in relief early in the NLDS – “if there’s a potential matchup.” Roberts sounded firm in his strategy – “it’s about starting pitching,” he said Wednesday – but there’s more to it than that. If the playoffs were a track meet, the Dodgers, Nationals and Astros would be beginning each race with a different long-distance runner. Sprinters would be called upon for the closing kick. The bullpen-ing approach, in its purest form, turns every pitcher into a middle-distance runner. But baseball has not evolved to the point where most teams feel this is practical – not yet, at least.The postseason is a time when experimentation becomes possible, if not necessary, and using starters out of the bullpen is nothing new. The Nationals’ approach to Tuesday’s game presented a bit like Game 7 of the 2001 World Series, when Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson recorded 26 of the Diamondbacks’ 27 outs in a winner-take-all game against the Yankees.Related Articleslast_img read more
