Boston down 0-2, but not out

first_img And they had the best home record in the majors this season. “Every experience you have helps you,” Boston manager Terry Francona said Thursday. “If players or me or the coaches or somebody can pull something positive from that experience, good.” BOSTON — For once, the Boston Red Sox have history on their side. Heading into today’s game against the White Sox at Fenway Park, the team that went 86 years between World Series titles is undaunted by Chicago’s 2-0 lead. After all, these Red Sox overcame a 3-0 deficit against the New York Yankees to win the AL championship last year. They’re 8-1 in games in which they faced playoff elimination since 2003. Ortiz batted .322 at Fenway compared to .278 on the road. Ramirez hit .307 at home and .280 on the road. The Red Sox scored just six runs in the first two games of the series losing 14-2 and 5-4 after leading the majors in batting average. Now they must face Garcia, who was 10-3 with a 3.40 ERA on the road and 4-5 with a 4.38 ERA at home. “That’s why I picked Freddy to pitch in the road trip,” Guillen said. “Hopefully, he continues to do what he’s been doing all year long.” Garcia won his last two starts and hasn’t lost in his last four. “It’s an exciting ballpark to play,” said Garcia, who hasn’t faced Boston this year but is 6-2 in his career. “Those people here are crazy.” Wakefield was 16-12 with a 4.15 ERA and pitched very well until last Saturday, when he struggled against the Yankees on three days’ rest. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Boston knuckleballer Tim Wakefield will try to prevent that. “We’ve been in this situation before,” Wakefield said. “Now that we’re back at home playing in front of our home crowd, there’s still a chance.” Those fans are sure to be chanting “M-V-P! M-V-P!” when David Ortiz comes to bat. They’ll accept “Manny being Manny’ whether the quirky Ramirez hits a homer or jogs to first base on a grounder. Both sluggers will be back where they hit best Ortiz lining doubles high off the left-field wall and Ramirez also going to the opposite field with homers over the low right-field fence. last_img read more

So You Want To Be a Trusted Advisor, Part II

first_img Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook! You need to make sales. You need help now. We’ve got you covered. This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now A lot of people say they want to be consultative, a peer, their client’s trusted advisor. There are, however, some behaviors that prevent one from being able to occupy that space. Here are a few of the things that cause you to retain your status as salesperson or vendor.Unwilling to tell the client that they need to change. Much of the time, when we are really trying to help a client produce better results, the real obstacle is the way that they are doing certain things. They often want the results without having to change anything on their side, having been told by non-peer, non-trusted advisor types that all they need to do is switch the vendor they are using. What makes you a trusted advisor is that you tell them they need to make changes on their side and that switching partners will not produce the results they need by itself.Unwilling to ask the client for the commitments they need to make. There is a difference between “needing to be liked” and “being likable.” Needing to be liked because you are afraid that making the client uncomfortable will cause you to lose the deal is a surefire way not to be a trusted advisor. Better results require that the client make certain commitments, and not allowing them to avoid making these commitments adds to trust—even when the client doesn’t want to do what they need to do.Unwilling to tell the client they need to invest more. If I had to pick one thing that would allow clients and the companies they serve to produce better results, it would be matching the investment to the outcome. But things have gotten too lean, and we have conflated lower price and lower costs to the detriment of clients and the companies that serve them. Helping the client invest appropriately is what you do when you are consultative. Allowing the client to believe their current investment is enough when it isn’t, is to abdicate your responsibility.Unwilling to engage with stakeholders that oppose your initiative. This is a skill of a high order, for certain. It isn’t easy to deal with the resistance, the cynics, the skeptics, and the people who really believe that there is a better option than what you are proposing. The avoidance of these individuals shows a fear, a weakness, a need to avoid conflict and the defense of your initiative. It also allows those who oppose you to point to your lack of engagement as proof that they’re correct and that you know it. The willingness and ability to engage those who oppose you is proof of your conviction—and your capacity to make change.Unwilling to share how difficult the change you are recommending will be. There is a certain variety of salesperson who doesn’t want to tell their client that there will be challenges on the path to better results. They prefer to avoid that conversation, believing that it will cause the client to kill the initiative altogether. The consultative salesperson, one who is striving to be a peer and trusted advisor, explains what is likely to create challenges, what they are likely going to need to do to overcome those challenges, and how they will be there to ensure that the outcome is obtained in spite of any challenges.None of these things are easy, but engaging in them is what creates the trust that makes you a trusted advisor.last_img read more

Rise in Yamuna level: Khattar holds meeting with senior officials

first_imgHaryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar held an emergency meeting with senior officials on Sunday to review the situation in Yamunanagar district, following the rise in water levels in Yamuna river after heavy rains. Mr. Khattar also conducted an aerial survey of the Hathnikund barrage located on Yamuna river in the district. The chief minister was informed by the officials of Panipat, Sonepat and Palwal district administration that though the river in these districts was flowing close to the danger mark, the situation, however, was under control and there were no reports of loss to life or damage to property. After holding a meeting with officials here, Khattar said that ‘special girdawari’ (revenue survey) would be conducted to assess the damage caused to crops by floods and rains. He said due compensation would be given to the affected farmers. Such affected farmers who have got their crops insured would be given compensation through the ‘Fasal Bima Yojana’ while those who had not opted for it, would be paid compensation by the government, an official statement quoting Khattar said. Others present at the meeting included Chief Secretary D.S. Dhesi, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Rajesh Khullar, Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue and Disaster Management Department) Keshni Anand Arora, Principal Secretary (Irrigation and Water Resources Department) Anurag Rastogi and other senior officers. The district administration of Yamunanagar in Haryana had sounded a high alert on Saturday following the water level in Yamuna river crossing the five lakh cusecs mark. It also cautioned the Delhi administration about the rise in water level. Insisting that the situation was under control, the Yamunanagar administration, however, has said all the necessary arrangements have been made to tackle the flood-like situation. The water level rose in the wake of continuous rains in catchment areas in Himachal Pradesh. The administration has also issued warning to people living near Yamuna river. A team of state disaster management force has already been put on alert. A flood control room has already been set up at the district level for fast response to deal with any flood-like situation.last_img read more

We felt that he was part of the future core.”Cone added that Manuel would still play on a part-time basis with Mighty Sports in the Dubai International Bball Championship but he also assured his former player that Ginebra is always open for a reunion.“I told him I left the door open, if he gets bored with the civilian life he can go back to our army and keep battling with us, but that will be on him,” said Cone.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cone tabbed Manuel to become part of the potential core that the Gin Kings will ultimately rely upon in the future, but the 12th overall pick of the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft chose to part ways with the franchise just days before the 2019 season began.Manuel, a licensed civil engineer, has decided to follow the career path that he had prepared himself for at the country’s no. 1 university.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionREAD: Jett Manuel leaves good impression in belated debutCone may have used Manuel sparingly during the Fighting Maroon’s rookie year, but the departure still left a sting on the multi-titled coach’s heart.
