Major League Baseball Players Association chief Tony Clark has expressed concern Saturday about how to deal with the Dexter Fowler situation by the media and equal or public statement to the agent Casey Close rip reporters supports and the Orioles early reports that the free-agent outfielder has agreed to a three-year contract to play in Baltimore.

“I think it is disappointing that we live in a world where it’s more important to be first if it is to be good,” Clark said at its annual spring visit to Orioles camp, “and itâ ???? sa very dangerous place to exist when information is way out that can not be 100 percent accurate, no matter what the information is and helps to change or sway the dialogue on one side of the equation or the other.

“I look forward to a conversation about how everyone is a little more adept might be in this regard in the best interest of the entire industry.â ????

so no one forget, Close blowing the Orioles and the many media that the unfinished $ 33000000 contract Fowler reject before returning to Chicago reported Cubs, though he is almost two full days to refute the reports and his client Adam Jones that he would be “delighted” with the Orioles.

Clark would not say whether the union would follow Close’s accusation that the Orioles violated baseball labor agreement.

???? An agent has the ability to claim that giving it issued, “says Clark.” Understand and appreciate what is revealed here, go back to the question, to say that we care is a understatement.â ????

Obama Vets GOP Nevada Governor for Supreme Court

Please log in or create an account so that we can save this story your Reading List. You will be able to gain access to the story of your reading list on any computer, tablet or smartphone.

Less than 24 hours after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell clear that Republicans would not participate put forward to confirmation hearings made Supreme Court nominated by President Obama, the news leaked that the White House is screened Nevada Republican governor Brian Sandoval for the opening.

“Sandoval are increasingly seen by then might be able to choose the only nominee President Obama some key Democrats who was able to break a Republican blockade in the Senate,” writes wapo’s Mike DeBonis and Juliet Eilperin would be. “A person familiar with the discussions said that while Sandoval [Harry] Reid he is not a final decision on whether he would have accepted a Supreme Court nomination, he would allow to move the selection forward. A person familiar in Nevada has confirmed the procedure that process is underway. “

So, on Tuesday, McConnell makes clear that no nominee even a confirmation hearing allowed. That same day Reid, the most powerful democracy in the Senate and a Nevadan, assembled with Sandoval. The next day – aka today – we learn that Sandoval, a Republican, is in the mixture at the end of Justice Antonin Scalia replace

Hmmmm .. coincidences do not exist in politics. A and especially when Harry Reid, the biggest political person in the Senate – with apologies to McConnell, who was number two – is now involved. “How wonderful for [Reid] in his estate year Nevadan get appointed to the Supreme Court by the location of the Republicans in the position to try to deny it to one of their own, and Spanish to start?” Writes Jon Ralston in the Reno Gazette Journal of the Sandoval trial balloon. (Reid has announced his retirement this year after five terms in the Senate.)

I have no doubt that Sandoval will be screened by the White House. And that he will have to seriously think about taking it – he wanted to take it, right? – If the work presented. A What I doubt is that he actually will be presented work. And why, if he goes it is presented, it would leak just a day after Sandoval and Reid squat.

What if Reid and the White House has decided to name Sandoval’s public stations troll McConnell and other Senate Republicans to date, has a largely united front when it comes to their unwillingness to a Obama’s nominee to consider the court? A and, while you’re thinking about something, remember thatâ White House press secretary Josh Earnest made it very clear that Obama has no shortlist of possible candidates for the court yet

name Sandoval in the air. – A Spanish Republican widely like in his original plan and the broader GOP – makes it very difficult for the Republicans in 2016 in blues / swing-y states to hold the line. A people like Sens. Mark Kirk (Ill.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Pat Toomey (Pa.), Kelly Ayotte (NH) and Rob Portman (Ohio), there is a real electoral threat in what is considered as part of a too radical or to-obstructionist a Republican party in Washington. By swinging a dish from the Republican ranks, Obama / Reid back this GOP senators into a rhetorical corner.  try to explain why you flatly the possibility of a meeting Republican governor rejected a Democratic president nominated to the Supreme Court is not easy for even the most skilled politician.

Republican strategists I have with a person, dumped their hat on the strategy, but demanded Sandoval will not wind on the bench. “IA have to believe that’s a troll,” said a high-level GOP consultant. “Obama and the Democrats want to hold to that guaranteed fifth liberal vote. by waving governor Sandoval, is likely to try to more newspaper editorials, blog posts and tweets. The probability of this happening is lower than the opportunity to generate of RGIII is the Washington football team starting line quarterback next season. “

I think it’s good. Reid is a master strategist. And for him, this seems like a win-win. If Sandoval was appointed by Obama, this will amount to a definitive Pluimpie Reid’s Ralston top notes. If not, can then Reid and his fellow Democrats Senate Republican filibuster on the Supreme Court pick used to vulnerable 2016 GOPers as fixed bash for their party extreme judge flank – taking back and perhaps even control the world’s leading advisory body in November <. / P>

Election live: Sanders and Clinton deadlocked as Nevada caucuses results trickle in

Election live: Sanders and Clinton deadlocked as Nevada caucuses results trickle in

the third round of the 2016 election begins with Democrats facing off in Nevada and Republicans try Trump catch in South Carolina

The third round of the 2016 election begins Democrats in the face stare off in Nevada and Republicans are trying to overtake Trump in South Carolina

Just a correction from earlier in the blog, I reported that Hillary Clinton has “all six” coin tosses in Iowa.

An eagle-eyed reader pointed out that this – which reached record from an article in the Des Moines – is not entirely accurate. According to the Washington Post:

Other news articles over the course of the day showed that Sanders won another elsewhere in the state; it was mainly those, it seems, that allegedly the state Democratic Party. We were never allowed to know how much coin toss there in total. But we can estimate how important it was. If Iowa County 11,000 delegates selected Monday finally compared to 1400 state deputies, implying that about eight County deputies equal to one at the state level. Clinton Iowa by four state-delegate equivalents, which means – according to my calculations – it would have taken to win 32 more coin flips to have been like Sanders who’s seated on the top

more . Over 40% of Nevada districts reporting, the race remains painfully near: Clinton 51.6% to 48.3% Sanders.

The former foreign minister seems to build a wider margin in the key Clark County, home to Las Vegas and most of Nevada’s population. But since the Nevada System split delegates – descend several districts to obscure valbylpot rules on a pack of cards – the state may prove to be no clear winner, as the Iowa caucuses earlier this month

. Democracy in action in Reno, Nevada, where supporters of Clinton and Sanders tries to lure undecided voters to their candidate

The unpredictable. “You can imagine these great ideas, but if you do not support behind ca get it, I’m just saying …”

Sanders-ISTA: “I think that our country is moving in the towards a more progressive direction … I’m not saying that we have these other people leave behind, but … “

the Clinton-ITO:” the right to much more right, and it is fair scary … “

In Las Vegas, Le Roy Graham and Linda Devaull Graham is a house divided. He returned Clinton, as he did in ’08. She supported Sanders and together with Obama eight years ago. She was to vote in a classroom at the Del Webb through the school, where they each attempt to win over the fans go under the compound caucus. Le Roy stomped the line Hilary things can be done.

“I’m watching Hillary since his first wife, the first lady of Arkansas was,” he said. “She always people she is for Obamacare argument under Administration Bill Clinton In a perfect world, Bernie will be the candidate, but I do not think he is eligible …”

His wife jumping in “this is what he said about Obama, he was not eligible.”

Her husband admit to the point. But when it comes to the vote, Clinton Sanders knocking out water: Linda was one of only three voters who support him in the classroom. Clinton 24.

Reno partisans for Clinton and Sanders work on the number of uncertain voters.

More than a quarter of the districts results in Nevada is now. What do we know? At this time, it is not enough, except that it already begin to feel now as a repetition of Iowa, where Clinton and Sanders was tied in effect.

The former foreign minister and the Vermont senator his neck and -neck. Much can and will change as the rest of the results came in first, and it may be that either Clinton or Sanders pulling for, but it might think worth about what a close race

answer :. Good for Sanders. This was a prerequisite Clinton campaign thought they win from the back of minority voters (they make up nearly half the population Nevada’s – very different from mostly white Iowa and New Hampshire).

polling in the state is notoriously unreliable, but only a few months ago, the surveys show Clinton has a big advantage over its rebellious challenger. Based on what we’ve seen so far, it is no longer the case.

Nevada still absolutely nail biting as results trickle in.

32% of districts reporting, Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders leads the traditionally margin – 51.66% to 48.24% ..

It is always one game this point

gekoukus is very consistent in Reno, reports Sam Levin:.

at the University of Nevada Reno website, where many students who participate for the first time in the caucus, the organizers have briefly ran English forms

This mean non-Spanish speakers Spanish taalvorme had used to sign up, so help a bit of confusion and forcing some Spanish speakers with the translation.

After a short period, but the site has documents in English.

“We have a resupply of English forms – so we are good now,” a representative of the Democratic Party has just Guardian

It is a very slow start here. – The organizers still processing voter two hours after the official beginning of time

Interesting:. A neighborhood in Pahrump decided by cutting deck: has had some pretty incredible luck

Hillary. with tiebreaks so far this election cycle

This factoid, MSNBC’s Ari Melber, is bad news game for Hillary Clinton – first caucus-goers are more likely to be for Bernie:

only from Chris McGreal, the full results of the caucus at Del Webb school in Las Vegas.

Many of the koukusse has slowed, but
