  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]

Winters suspended for confrontation

NEW YORK – Umpire Mike Winters was suspended by Major League Baseball for the remainder of the regular season yesterday because of his confrontation with San Diego’s Milton Bradley last weekend.

The Padres claimed Winters baited Bradley, who has a history of losing his temper. Bradley tore a knee ligament when his manager spun him to the ground while trying to keep him from going after the umpire during Sunday’s 7-3 loss to Colorado in San Diego.

Winters was suspended because the commissioner’s office concluded he had used a profanity aimed at Bradley, a baseball official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the reasoning for the suspension was not announced.

Padres manager Bud Black declined to comment.

“In this case, I think it’s best for my position to just stay away from it,” he said by phone from San Francisco, where the Padres were to finish a series against the Giants last night.

The 48-year-old Winters became a major league umpire in 1990 and worked the World Series in 2002 and last year.
