The tweet arrived at 2:03 p.m., just as a contingent of Japanese reporters trickled into the press box at Target Field for another day of exhaustive coverage of rookie sensation Shohei Ohtani, the hottest story in Major League Baseball this season. Except Ohtani isn’t in Minnesota. And the tweet delivered news of a potentially serious injury in Ohtani’s pitching elbow. The mood changed in a snap. “Shocked,” said Hideki Okuda, a sportswriter for Sports Nippon newspaper who has covered Japanese players in MLB since 1997. Shocked, dejected, gut punch. They all apply. The magic carpet ride of Ohtani’s debut season took an ominous turn Friday with diagnosis of a Grade 2 sprain of an elbow ligament. Sprain and UCL used in the same sentence usually causes baseball folks to break into nervous sweat. Ohtani left his start Wednesday because of a blister on his hand. Now there is concern he might need Tommy John surgery if rehab doesn’t yield positive … [Read more...] about News of Shohei Ohtani’s DL trip a jarring blow to Japanese media

Opinion Climate Change This article originally appeared on the Conversation. “The Darfur conflict began as an ecological crisis”, wrote the then-UN secretary general Ban Ki-Moon back in 2007, about an ongoing war which arose, he said, “at least in part from climate change”. Since then the idea that climate change has caused and will cause human conflict and mass migrations has become more and more accepted—just look at the claimed effects of droughts in Syria and Ethiopia. The media has even started using terms such as “climate refugees” and “environmental migrants” to describe people fleeing their homes from these climate-driven conflicts. But it isn’t clear whether there is much evidence for this link between climate change and conflict—there certainly seems to be no consensus within the academic literature. Demonstrators protest President Donald Trump's decision to exit the Paris climate … [Read more...] about Climate Change Is Not A Key Cause Of Human Conflict Around The World: Study

Looking at the weather maps I don't know whether to laugh or weep. Winds will gust over 40 mph, creating blizzard conditions south/west of the metro area Saturday. Never tell a Minnesotan not to travel, but personally, I'd have a Plan B for Saturday. 40s return next week; a sun angle similar to late August melts most of the snow by midweek. I'm sorry. Follow the Trends. Yesterday afternoon the local NWS office was going with 7" in the Twin Cities. They have progressively increased this over time as models appear to come into rough alignment with the axis of heaviest snow. Spaghetti Plot. Earlier model runs were clustering in the 6-10" range for the Twin Cities. 00z runs from Thursday evening were showing considerably higher amounts; well over a foot for MSP. Source: Iowa State. Ice Storm Potential. The best chance of sleet and glaze ice will … [Read more...] about Friday the 13th coincidence: Up to a foot of snow in mid-April?
