Recently he’s taken his legendary no-holds-barred approach to food to CNN, as host of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. To some, he is nothing short of a food demi-god (You can bet your bacon bits Press food marauder Chris Cooke is a fan; damn that man likes to eat! Would Bourdain possibly pair up with Cooke to kneecap some strange, weird feast sometime in the future if the TV star is impressed with some of the culinary treats he’ll be devouring during his trek out East!? Wow.). If you’re not as familiar with his edible conquests (or his love of NYC and the Ramones), fear not, this visit is your chance to jump right in.

Lionel Messi has given the green light to Barcelona to complete a switch for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez‘ during the summer transfer window.Advertisement Loading… center_img Inter are taking full advantage of the La Liga leader’s financial state, with Barca resorting to asking Lionel Messi’s view on the possibility of  landing compatriot Lautaro Martinez.At the moment, Messi will certainly not leave Barca for a direct European rival as it doesn’t look likely that Lautaro Martinez would sign for the Blaugrana if Messi were to depart.Nevertheless, Inter Milan are not letting their resilience break and have made their demands very clear to Barcelona, who may be unable to meet them. With that said, the club has been forced into looking for alternatives as they must sign a striker during the summer. Barca have shown interest in Arsenal frontman Alexandre Lacazette, who proves to be a much cheaper option and Lionel Messi has approved their interest in the ex-Olympique Lyon superstar, according to Don Balon.Alexandre Lacazette does not seem too happy at the Emirates Stadium and now that he is at the peak of his abilities, the France international is more inclined towards playing in the Champions League on a regular basis and winning some trophies too.The Gunners don’t seem to be on track to match the player’s ambitions at this point in time.Read Also: Man City lead race to sign £97.5m-rated Inter Milan strikerMikel Arteta has included Alexandre Lacazette in his plans for the future, but it makes no sense holding onto a player who doesn’t want to stay.Right now, Arsenal value the player at only 40 million euros which comes to slightly more than one-third of what the Blaugrana may end up paying for Lautaro Martinez.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

MLB would ‘benefit’ from mercy rule, Yankees manager Aaron Boone says

first_img“It is not fun to obviously put a position player in that situation,’’ Boone said. “For Ford and some of the guys it is fun, but sitting in my chair, you worry about hurting someone, and sitting there getting kicked in the mouth is no fun. I am sure there is something to that question.’’ There is no mercy rule in MLB, but New York’s Aaron Boone thinks one being implemented might be a good thing.The Yankees manager shared his thoughts on the idea Friday when addressing the 19-5 loss his team suffered at the hands of the Indians on Thursday. “It’s not fun to have to put in a position player”Aaron Boone discusses a mercy rule and how it could prevent injuries/bad situations during blowouts pic.twitter.com/EB6woa1GbN— Yankees Videos (@snyyankees) August 16, 2019“I think there would be a benefit to that,’’ Boone said. “You would probably eliminate a lot of the unwritten rules, people running or swinging. It would be like, if you get to this point after seven innings or whatever, there might be something to that and worth exploring.’’Some of Boone’s frustration stems from the fact he had to use DH Mike Ford on the mound for two innings against Cleveland. He’d rather avoid position players pitching.
