The 114,000 DWT Ice-class IA Aframax tankers, measuring 250 meters in length, 44 meters in width and 21 meters in height, are scheduled to be delivered from the third quarter of 2018 and to be chartered to Shell.The order for the four vessels is valued at $240 million, Martek Marine said on Friday adding that a Hyundai Heavy Industries official said the shipyard is looking to secure more orders for similar vessels.Martek Marine’s contract with HHI specifies the supply of low-pressure selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The emissions monitoring system will then monitor the emissions and thus the efficacy of the SCR through analysis of NOx, SOx and CO2.
“Shark” is definitely not down with the concept of the opener, which the Rays used to their advantage in 2018 and will employ again in 2019. Samardzija, 34, basically questioned Tampa Bay pitchers’ manhood in comments to reporters at spring training (per the San Francisco Chronicle).“Where did the pride go from the players’ standpoint?” Samardzija said. “Where were the guys in Tampa Bay saying, ‘No, no, no, I’m good enough to go seven innings and get all these outs. You don’t need to do this.’ Everybody’s just accepting what they’re told.“As players, we need a little more anarchy. We need a little bit more self-moxie, a little more pride about your career and about the way you’re being treated. When I came up in this game, I was told by the older guys to value your value. Understand what you bring to the team and let them know that, too.”MORE: 30 teams, 30 grades — How did your favorite team do this offseason?Tampa Bay’s youth on the pitching staff last year made openers, “bulk” relievers, bullpen days and fluid roles an easier sell for manager Kevin Cash and pitching coach Kyle Snyder. Among the plan’s core pitchers, only Sergio Romo had any real time in the game, and he embraced his role as the original opener before replacing the traded Alex Colome as the team’s closer.The rest of the main guys — Ryne Stanek, Diego Castillo, Ryan Yarbrough, Yonny Chirinos and, later, Jalen Beeks, all rookies — wisely embraced another old-school concept and avoided being labeled bad guys at the start of their careers. They and other pitchers “bought in,” as Cash repeated Tuesday, threw when they were told, and helped the Rays win 90 games.”You can stand up for yourself, but it’s like, would you rather stand up for yourself and be in Triple-A, or would you rather do your job and be in the big leagues?” Stanek told reporters Tuesday in response to Samardzija (per the Tampa Bay Times). Stanek also said Samardzija could resist because of his expensive long-term contract.Yarbrough and Chirinos are the top candidates this year to follow the opener in the first, second or third inning. They’ll watch Cy Young winner Blake Snell, Charlie Morton and Tyler Glasnow handle the type of starter role Samardzija prefers.A side note: New Giants team president Farhan Zaidi is willing to use the opener as a strategic tool and as a means of protecting younger pitchers like Dereck Rodriguez and Andrew Suarez. Samardzija and Giants ace Madison Bumgarner might not be buying, but they’ve also earned the ability to avoid that arrangement.* * * Let’s finish this two-fer with new Royals center fielder Billy Hamilton, one of the fastest runners in the game. Hamilton told The Athletic (subscription required) that Kansas City is trying to go retro with its offense. He seemed to be saying that it wants to reprise, to some degree, “Whitey Ball,” the speed-and-defense approach named for former Royals manager Whitey Herzog when he was managing the cross-state Cardinals in the 1980s.Hamilton said general manager Dayton Moore is about “bringing back that style of baseball.”Moore is looking forward to having the type of team speed “that perhaps at times cannot be defended against,” as he told reporters. His first two offseason moves were signing Hamilton (34 steals with the Reds last season) and fellow free agent Chris Owings, who has stolen as many as 21 in a season (2016 with the Diamondbacks). They’ll join the middle-infield combo of Whit Merrifield (45 steals last year) and Adalberto Mondesi (32) and left fielder Alex Gordon (12) in the Royal Relays.Moore also brought back baserunning specialist Terrance Gore, who has 27 career steals and one — one — career base hit. Call it “Revenge of the Cool Kids,” maybe? Baseball guys thumbing their noses at the nerds? Two stories this week showed that some players and organizations aren’t ready to dump old-school thinking.Start with Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija, who was one of the majors’ most durable starters until shoulder problems limited him to 10 mostly ineffective outings last season. He’s a fan of guys taking the ball every five days and pitching deep into games. The Royals’ current skipper, Ned Yost, rhapsodizes about bunting, so a further move toward small ball only seems natural. It’s also logical that the organization would try something different after the offense finished third from the bottom in the American League in home runs and slugging percentage during a 104-loss season.None of this is to say the change in focus will make the Royals competitive. The other main component in a speed-and-defense approach is pitching, and KC needs more of it. The top returning starters are Danny Duffy, Jakob Junis and Brad Keller, and Moore’s only significant offseason mound additions have been Brad Boxberger and Homer Bailey.Still, it’ll be refreshing to see the Royals’ speedsters scurrying around the bases and in the field if the strategy fully takes hold. The team may even surprise opponents who aren’t used to that type of . . . wait for it . . . old-school aggressiveness.
Bajevic: All three Teams against Bosnia and Herzegovina’s National Football Team are extremely Strong
After UEFA Nations League draw for the 2020/21 season, Bosnia and Herzegovina national team head coach, Dušan Bajević, said:“We could not expect either light or tough opponents, because the draw was such that only top teams were in circulation. All three teams are extremely strong, but we also have the strength and quality to confront them the right way. At no point do we need to doubt ourselves and surrender. Matches with teams like these need us to see what level we are at and how much we can.”Bosnia and will have in the Group 1 of League A national teams from the Netherlands, Italy and Poland as its opponents.
