Dave Miley

first_imgDo you remember Dave Miley who was the Cincinnati Reds manager from 2003-2005 where he compiled a 125 win and 164 loss record?  The Tampa native was a catcher by profession.  As a player he was a member of the Cincinnati Reds organization.  After retirement from active playing, he became a coach and manager in the Reds minor league system before moving into the major league managers roll.  He was only in his 40’s when he managed the Cincinnati Reds.Dave Miley’s wife is from the St. Peters area of Franklin County.  He met and married her while a member of the Reds organization.Albert Schneider of Morris was recently in a local nursing home recuperating from knee surgery.  His roommate was Dave Miley’s father-in-law, and Dave and his wife came to visit while both men were in the nursing home.  Albert stated that Dave was very friendly to him during the visit.  I am not sure what Dave Miley is doing at this time.  He is only 52 years old, so I am sure he is still involved somewhere in baseball.  However, I was not able to find out where when I did research for this article.last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘fed up’ with Real Madrid

first_imgSpeculation that Cristiano Ronaldo could be set for a sensational return to Manchester United has been given weight after former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon claimed the forward was “fed up”.The Portugal international has recently been making noises that he is not fully content at the Bernabeu. It’s a situation thought to stem from slipping behind the highest-paid earners in football, with Radamel Falcao and former Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney understood to be among those earning more than the Ballon d’Or holder.In a recent interview, Ronaldo himself hinted at a possible return to Old Trafford: “I love Manchester,” he said.”Everyone knows that — I have said it many times. Manchester is in my heart. I left many good friends there, the supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”Comments today from Calderon will only rock the Bernabeu boat further after he claimed that Ronaldo’s relationship with Florentino Pérez, the current Real Madrid president, is unstable.Video: Premier League review“My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president,” Calderon told Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on TalkSPORT. “When he came [to Real Madrid] with [Arjen] Robben he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team [but then he was sold].“Two years ago it was [Gonzalo] Higuain sold and he didn’t like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let [Mesut] Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria this summer.”Should Real Madrid sell Ronaldo, Manchester United would have first option on him and according to Calderon a return to Old Trafford would appeal to the player.“When I signed him in 2008, I remember he said he was grateful to Manchester United. He had a marvellous time there, he likes everything. It is a really great club.”last_img read more

Clippers expect Marcus Morris to fit right in

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime “There may be no better fit than Marcus,” Clippers general manager Michael Winger said Thursday of the 30-year-old Philadelphia native who played alongside Beverley and Clippers forward Patrick Patterson in Houston.There are a few fun pieces of evidence online that hint at the pre-built chemistry between Morris, Pat Bev and Pat Pat.Take, for example, accounts from the Rockets’ 140-109 drubbing of Golden State in 2013, when Houston hit a then-NBA-record 23 3-pointers. Late in the game, Beverley drove for a slam and celebration that resulted in a taunting technical foul. Irked, the Warriors spent the rest of the game fouling, including a hard one on Beverley by Draymond Green.Beverley told reporters he didn’t take offense – “That’s part of basketball,” he said – but Morris confronted Green after the play and both he and Green were ejected.Recall, on Jan. 5, Beverley goaded his former teammate into a technical foul as they stood bantering spiritedly beside each other while waiting for Paul George to shoot a free throw. The moment drew raves from Clippers TV play-by-play man Brian Sieman: “I love the Morris twins,” he said of Marcus and his brother, Markieff, who plays for the Pistons. “Love ’em. They’re tough as nails.”Marcus Morris is proud, too – of his Kansas Jayhawks. That much was clear during a debate, recorded and posted online, between him and Patterson, a former Kentucky standout, ahead of the 2012 Kansas-Kentucky NCAA title game.Before the Wildcats won 67-59, Patterson – who Wednesday night slyly posted an Instagram story featuring an image of a man with his fist balled in front of his mouth in quiet anticipation – regaled Morris with Anthony Davis’ accomplishments that season as a Wildcat.Related Articles To make it happen, L.A. traded forward Moe Harkless to the New York Knicks. And, despite already being short on draft picks for the next few years, they also delivered a 2020 first-round draft pick, the right to swap 2021 first-round picks (top-four protected) and a 2021 second-round pick to the Knicks.Also, to match Morris’ $15 million and Harkless’ $11.5 million salaries, the Clippers traded guard Jerome Robinson and his $3.5 million contract to Washington. (There, Robinson will find a familiar face in Johnny Rogers, the Wizards’ vice president of pro personnel, who worked in the same capacity for the Clippers when they drafted Robinson 13th overall in 2018). In return, the Wizards sent draft rights to Ukranian guard Issuf Sanon to the Knicks and sent Isaiah Thomas to the Clippers, who are expected to waive him.Morris, of course, is expected to be a key component on a Clippers team that’s in win-now-and-later mode.This season, Morris was averaging a career-high 19.6 points and shooting a career-high 43.9% from 3-point range for the struggling Knicks (15-36).The Clippers are excited about adding another versatile forward with more scoring punch than Harkless – and with the team’s requisite toughness.center_img Apropos of the trade deadline flurry, shoutouts on social media came in a hurry Thursday.New Clipper Marcus Morris took just five minutes following the close of trading to tweet his thanks to New York and just seven more to announce his presence in L.A., tweeting: “They gotta dog in Hollyhood @LAClippers let’s gets it.”His new teammates Patrick Beverley and Montrezl Harrell posted responses within minutes: Hooted Harrell: “You got some more over here waiting for you my G.” Hollered Beverley: “My brother back with me. It’s on.”The Clippers acquired Morris, a 6-foot-8 forward whom they’d long coveted, as part of a three-team deal just before the noon cutoff. Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ Morris shot back by boasting about Thomas Robinson, a first-team All-American who led the nation in double-doubles: “Who had 31 double-doubles? Thirty-one?” Morris quizzed (padding Thomas Robinson’s season total by four). “I can’t even count to 31!”Retorted Patterson, jokingly: “That’s that Kansas education.”When Winger said Morris aligns with the spirit of the group, it seems he wasn’t kidding.BEVERLEY OUTDon’t expect to see Morris or Beverley on Saturday against the Minnesota Timberwolves (5 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket). Beverley will miss the game with a sore right groin, which forced the starting guard from Wednesday’s 128-111 win over Miami in the third quarter.
