Developers noted that review times for apps (Amazon pre-approves apps on its Appstore, just like Apple does for the iOS App Store) were lengthy, apps were not filtered for different screen sizes and it was difficult for customers to contact developers with problems. “We definitely didn’t have everything buttoned up appropriately,” acknowledged Aaron Rubenson, the director of the Amazon Appstore, in an interview with ReadWriteWeb. “We’ve learned a lot.”In October 2011, Amazon announced the Kindle Fire, its first full-featured, Android-based tablet. All of a sudden, the Amazon Appstore for Android made a whole lot more sense. The e-commerce King could funnel Fire tablet users to its own curated app repository and make money off of it. Fire users were blocked from accessing Google’s Android Market, even from the browser. Perhaps just as important, Amazon started refining its developer experience. The Appstore team has grown significantly (and Amazon is still actively hiring Android developers, managers and engineers) and the company has expanded the program to include more layers of developer support. That means extra app testing and more marketing experts to help developers spread awareness an increase distribution. For the App of the Day, the terms are clearer and there are more people involved to help create an integrated campaign for the developers and help prepare them for the deluge of downloads associated with the sale. Amazon has also redesigned its developer portal for the Appstore and added a new tools and software developer kits. The biggest addition came in April with Amazon’s in-app purchase SDK that allows for integration of the company’s “1-Click” purchasing for in-app goods. Easing that process can mean big bucks for app makers. “The average in-app purchase is two-times that of a paid app,” Rubenson noted. With the newly announced Kindle Fires, Amazon also released a new maps SDK, powered by Nokia’s navigation suite. Games have also been given a higher priority in the new Kindle Fires, with a dedicated menu icon to the games section in the Appstore.Developers RespondTo Amazon’s credit, there have not been any significant developer flare ups in 2012. “We are really pleased with our overall relationship with Amazon,” said David Tyler, director of product development at NatureShare, in an email. “Working with our contact there has been great. He was always quick to respond and took a genuine interest in our apps. Amazon promoted our app when it was first released and our Audubon Birds app was even featured in an email.”Yet, Amazon remains the underdog. Developers go where the eyeballs are – and the overwhelming majority of eyeballs are on non-Kindle Android and iOS devices. Android’s Google Play store has 675,000 apps, Apple’s App Store has 700,000. The Amazon Appstore has 51,000. Android’s installed base is near 500 million while Apple has activated 400 million iPhones. The Kindle Fire cannot come close to matching those types of numbers. “Many of the mobile game developers on our network report higher ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) on Amazon’s Kindle Fire devices than on either iOS or Android devices,” said Maria Alegre, CEO of Chartboost in an email. “However, there is simply a much higher volume of iOS and Android devices on the market than Kindle Fire devices. So mobile game developers and publishers, while they can make more money per Kindle user, are making more money overall on the more popular iOS and Android platforms. It’s a volume issue for Amazon, and we’re interested to see how the new Kindle Fire HD line of devices changes the landscape.”It is almost safe to say that Amazon has finally solved its developer issues. Amazon’s team is now bigger, more efficient and more receptive to mobile developers and their needs. Developers know what to expect from Amazon and its services so they shouldn’t see more of the types of surprises that rocked Shifty Jelly in 2011. The trick for Amazon now is to figure out how to get out from under the thumb of Google and Apple. The release of two new Kindle Fires is a good start, but far from enough. An Amazon smartphone has long been rumored to be in the works, but would an Amazon-branded smartphone sell in big enough numbers to make a difference?But give Amazon its props. The company may have stumbled when it first entered the mobile app space – and it took plenty of lumps along the way. But now Amazon looks like it has found its stride. When Amazon announced its Appstore for Android last year, a lot of people were left scratching their heads. Despite the seeming strangeness of Amazon running an Android Appstore, mobile app developers were cautiously optimistic. The Android Market (now Google Play) at the time was a disorganized and difficult-to-monetize quagmire. A curated, third-party app store with the might of Amazon behind seemed to offer a unique opportunity. But the e-commerce giant had to learn to navigate the world of mobile apps just like everybody else.App Of The Day And Gaming NightmaresFrom the beginning, it was not all roses between Amazon and developers. Upon launch of the Appstore, it became evident fairly quickly that Amazon did not know how to handle the mobile developer community. Shortly after launch in March 2011, the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) issued a warning for mobile game developers to steer clear of the Appstore. The group’s concerns were over pricing, promotion and distribution – isssues that Amazon’s developer agreement made confusing and opaque: “The IGDA has significant concerns about Amazon’s current Appstore distribution terms and the negative impact they may have on the game development community… we are not aware of any other retailer having a formal policy of paying a supplier just 20% of the supplier’s minimum list price without the supplier’s permission,” the IDGA said in a letter to its developers in April 2011. This response was a big concern for Amazon because games continue to be the most popular single category of mobile apps. Later in 2011, Amazon had a different mess on its hands, again tied to distribution and developer compensation. An independent app developer had agreed to be part of Amazon’s popular “free app of the day” program. The agreement between Amazon and developers held that even though the app was free for the day, publishers would still make 20% of the list price on downloads of their apps. The developer, Shifty Jelly, found that not to be the case. “That’s right, Amazon gave away 101,491 copies of our app! At this point, we had a few seconds of excitement as well, had we mis-read the email and really earned $54,800 in one day? We would have done if our public agreement was in place, but we can now confirm that thanks to Amazon’s secret back-door deals, we made $0 on that day. That’s right, over 100,000 apps given away, $0 made,” the company wrote at the time.Not surprisingly, Shifty Jelly terminated its Amazon Appstore developer account.

File photo of shuttler Saina Nehwal in action during her quarterfinal match in 16th Asian games in China.Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal rallied to register a scintilliating three-game victory over Shixian Wang of China to clinch her third Super Series title of the year at the Hong Kong Open in Wanchai on Sunday.The 20-year-old Indian capped her career’s fourth Super Series title triumph with a 15-21 21-16 21-17 win over the third seed Chinese in a gruelling one hour and 11 minutes summit clash at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium.The girl from Hyderabad won back-to-back titles — Indian Open Grand Prix, Singapore Open Super Series and defended the Indonesian Super Series — before clinching the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games in October in Delhi.Saina, who dropped to fourth in the world rankings, is likely to inch closer to the number one spot with this resounding victory.Saina played a tactical game after she lost the first game and clawed her way back with some fast-paced rallies and powerful smashes to outwit the Chinese world number five.In the second game, Saina jumped to 11-5 from 5-5 but Shixian narrowed the gap to 11-10 before the gutsy Indian surged ahead to 19-11 by registering seven straight points.But Saina missed a couple of points on the baseline and nets to allow Shixian close the gap to 19-16. But with the Chinese hitting the shuttle out, Saina was back into the match.In the edge-of-the-seat decider, Saina and Shixian were locked in a gruelling battle and didn’t concede an inch to each other.advertisementThe Chinese kept pushing the shuttle at the back court but Saina was in no mood to relent as she retrieved everything and sent down some powerful cross court smashes to open up a 5-0 lead.But a couple of misjudgements on the baseline allowed Shixian to narrow the gap. The Chinese started playing fast rallies and caught Saina at the nets to make it 6-7 but a series of unforced errors and a sensational cross court smash saw Saina change sides with an 11-9 lead.Back into her winning side of the court, Saina involved her rival in long rallies and waited for Shixian to make mistakes.A controversial baseline call gave Shixian a lead of 14-13 but Saina didn’t give up and wrested the lead at 15-14, before being locked at 16-16.From here on, Saina walked away with a three-point cushion with a smash, a net dribble and round-the-head drop to move to 19-16. Shixian gained another point with a smash to make it 19-17.But Saina soon achieved the match point with another smash that floored Shixian and with the Chinese hitting the shuttle out, Saina threw her racquet to the audience in celebration.- With PTI inputs read more
TweetPinShare0 Shares NEW YORK — Andrea Bargnani bounced back from an awful, two-point performance in his last game against the Wizards with one of his best this season.The top pick in the 2006 draft had 25 points, eight rebounds and four of the team’s 14 blocks, Shane Larkin added 15 points and 11 rebounds, and the Knicks snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 101-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on April 5.Aside from his offensive performance, the 29-year-old Italian impressed Knicks coach Derek Fisher with his aggressiveness on the defensive end and especially around the rim.“I think that comes from the fact that nobody is giving up,” Bargnani said. “Despite our record, everybody keeps building on what we’re trying to build. So today it showed on the defensive end.”Entering the game, Bargnani, who is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, had been averaging 14.4 points in 27 games – 20 as a starter – with All-Star Carmelo Anthony out for the season.“He’s an extremely talented player. The injuries really limited his ability to reach his ceiling or get closer to it,” Fisher said. “So whatever the futures hold in that regard, I think the way he is finishing this season is not only showing us but showing other teams as well that he is a very capable player still at this point of his career. If he is back that is great.”Lance Thomas chipped in 14 points for the Knicks, whose last victory was on March 17 over the defending champion San Antonio Spurs at Madison Square Garden.The Knicks’ 15-62 record is the worst in the NBA and with the win, their magic number to clinch the NBA’s basement remains at five with five games to play in the regular season.If they end up with the worst record, the Knicks could have the best lottery chance – 25 percent – to notch the top pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.In an Easter Sunday matchup between two of NBA’s worst, New York led 81-72 with 10:40 left to go in the fourth quarter, but Hollis Thompson initiated a 10-0 run with 8:33 and Smith capped it with a floater that cut the lead to 85-83 with 6:07 remaining.After Ish Smith’s layup trimmed the Knicks lead to 91-89 with 2:33 left in the quarter, New York broke the game open with an 8-0 run.Smith and reserve forward Thompson each had 17 points for the visiting 76ers, who’ve lost six straight. read more

WARSAW, Poland — Poland’s prime minister says his government’s priority is not to adopt the common European currency, the euro, but to raise people’s earnings to Western European levels.Premier Mateusz Morawiecki was commenting Tuesday in reaction to the opposition, which said it would adopt the euro if it won power in parliamentary elections in the fall.Morawiecki told state radio that his government’s priority is to make earnings comparable with those in rich European countries, which would take some 10 years.He praised the Polish currency, the zloty, saying it is ensuring people’s prosperity, and cited Slovakia and Lithuania as countries where prices of staple goods rose following the adoption of the euro.Poland’s ruling party recently announced a new round of social benefits that critics say aim to win voter backing.The Associated Press read more
The pieces are all coming together at Pieceful Arts.The goal of Pieceful Arts is to provide a collaborative space for other artists that need more space to work, for short-term or long-term use, said owner Suzanne Earls.“I was in a position where I couldn’t find anything reasonable,” Earls said about finding available work spaces.Another goal for Earls is to provide an accessible space for everyone. This is seen through her “Pay What You Can” painting mornings. Participants of these events are encouraged to pay what is reasonable to them at that moment, which can range from a dollar amount to a smile.The business opened earlier this month on Robinson Street in Simcoe.“It’s been fun. I’ve had a lot of people popping in and inquiring about the space, and introducing themselves,” Earls said about her first week in the downtown core. “Local businesses have been welcoming me to the community, bringing me treats. There are a lot of really wonderful people that I’ve met so far.”Earls teaches mosaic, acrylics, paint parties, and offers open studio time.There are also guest instructors scheduled to come teach print making, felting, floral arranging, and water colours. The courses being offered are currently beginner level, but plans are to offer advanced programs in the future.“It’s very exciting for me and these other businesses to partner together. I think it brings a lot of energy to downtown,” Earls said about the other art-centric businesses that are finding homes downtown.In the future, Pieceful Arts hopes to partner with other local business owners, property owners, and the BIA to create improvements in the downtown email@example.com read more
“I leave Ethiopia and Eritrea the way I found them in 2000,” said Legwaila Joseph Legwaila, recalling that the UN peacekeeping mission (UNMEE) he headed was specifically designed to create conditions conducive to the demarcation of the border.That task, he stressed, was never the UN’s responsibility. “It is not for UNMEE, but for the Boundary Commission and the Parties – Ethiopia and Eritrea – to do,” he said.He also called on the international community to redouble its efforts to try to break the current impasse. “You have to break the stalemate, the border has to be demarcated because that is the only way you can have peace between these two countries and peace in the Horn of Africa.”Mr. Legwaila stressed that UNMEE had succeeded in separating the forces of the two sides, monitoring the places where they are redeployed, and protecting the integrity of the Temporary Security Zone. “We did that job despite the restriction imposed on us,” he said. Eritrea has restricted UNMEE’s flights in the area.While underscoring the mission’s accomplishments, he spoke with emotion of the unfulfilled tasks. “I leave with sadness that the border has not been demarcated, but with pride that I have led this mission for five and a half years even under difficult circumstances and that I was able to implement the mandate entrusted to me and my colleagues by the Security Council.”He welcomed the fact that many internally displaced persons had returned to their homes while voicing regret that others remain in camps. “You have to go to some of these IDP camps and your heart will bleed for these poor people who are still living in misery and squalor simply because the war has not ended yet – there is only a pause, and I hope this is a pause which will not be [broken by] another war.“But the fact is that as long as the border is not demarcated, we will continue to languish in this transitional phase, from a real hot state of war to peace,” he added.The envoy voiced hope that “Ethiopia and Eritrea will finally rediscover the courage” which had motivated them to sign peace accords and achieve a final settlement “so that Ethiopians and Eritreans can again visit each other, so that diplomatic missions between the two countries can be re-established, so that the leaders of these two wonderful countries can pay state visits to each other.” read more
The Belarusian automobile engineering company BelAZ is about to make a new haul truck for a new carrying capacity class, BelAZ representatives told Belarussian news agency, BelTA. BelAZ’s experimental shop has nearly finished assembling a haul truck BelAZ 75320 with the carrying capacity of 290 t.“The new vehicle will expand the lineup of haul trucks with a large carrying capacity, giving customers more options to choose the vehicles that match their operational conditions. The new vehicle is designed to handle heavy loads on its reliable chassis, which incorporates cast components at top-tension points. The chassis, the drive axle, and the front axle boast high reliability thanks to modern design solutions, which rely on precise calculations throughout the entire engineering process.”“Reliability has also been proven by in-house trials. The new haul truck uses a 2,125 kW (2,850 hp) Cummins engine coupled with a new-generation alternating-current transmission from General Electric Company to operate with optimal power on uneven surfaces. The suspension is pneumohydraulic with an inbuilt hydraulic shock absorber.”The driver’s cab incorporates modern design components, hydrostatic power steering, and a highly effective electrodynamic brake. The design of the cab and the platform is compliant with ROPS and FOPS requirements. The driver’s seat is fully adjustable. “The cab also has a triple-layer windscreen, tempered rear and side glass, a heating and air conditioning unit, windscreen wipers and washers. BelAZ specialists are always on the lookout for the most practical layout designs.”“The efforts are aimed at making the form and the integrity of the haul truck more rational. With the new vehicle on the market, BelAZ trucks will be represented in all the carrying capacity classes of the world market of haul trucks. The public joint-stock company (OAO) BelAZ is the managing company of the holding company BelAZ. BelAZ is the world’s top manufacturer of haul trucks with a large carrying capacity and an extremely large carrying capacity as well as other heavy transport equipment used in the mining industry and the civil engineering industry. Over the course of 70 years the company has made over 500 various modifications of haul trucks and special-purpose vehicles. The company has sold some 146,000 vehicles to 72 countries.”Source: http://m.eng.belta.by/economics/view/belarusian-belaz-to-roll-out-290-tonne-haul-truck-110512-2018/ read more
Newcomers can get Spotify Premium for just 99 cents for the first three months. Lionel Bonaventure / AFP/Getty Images For a long, long time, I resisted using a music-streaming service. But I’m totally drinking the Kool-Aid now, and you should, too. Here, I’ll make it painless: Until June 30, new Spotify customers can sign up for three months of Spotify Premium for just 99 cents. Not per month, mind you: 99 cents total. After that, the subscription goes up to the usual rate: $9.99 per month.See it at SpotifySo, what, you’re supposed to pay that for the rest of your life? That was always my big objection, but then I realized I’m already doing likewise for things like phone service, Netflix and Hulu. (Speaking of that, Spotify’s $9.99 Premium plan now includes Hulu as well! How’s that for a perk? Update: It appears this promotion has ended earlier than expected. We’re investigating with both companies to find out why.)Meanwhile, if I were to buy just one CD or MP3 album per month, it would likely cost me at least $10. For that same amount, I get unlimited ad-free access to all the music of the world — anytime, anywhere, no storage required (unless I want to download it for offline listening).I’m also overjoyed to be free of the hassles of maintaining a digital-music library, trying to find space for it on my phone or tablet and all that rigmarole. So, yeah, I’m a convert. I’m not saying Spotify is the best of the streaming services (though the recent addition of Hulu puts it way at the top), merely that this three-month subscription lets you really live into this way of consuming music and see if it’s something you like.

More information: M. B. Areal. Studying star-forming processes towards G29.862-0.044. arXiv:1904.10914 [astro-ph.GA]. arxiv.org/abs/1904.10914 Giant molecular outflow detected from the quasar PDS 456 YSOs are stars in early stage of evolution, in particular protostars and pre-main sequence stars. They are usually observed embedded in dense molecular clumps, environments containing plenty of molecular gas and interstellar dust.Located some 21,000 light years away from the Earth, G29.862–0.044 (or G29 for short) is embedded in the massive star-forming region G29.96–0.02. This YSO was a target of multiwavelength observations performed by a team of astronomers led by María Belén Areal of University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. They used the 15-m James Clerk Maxwell Telescope and Gemini-North 8.2-m telescope to study G29 and its environment in order to obtain a complete picture of this YSO, the related star-forming processes, and the interstellar medium around it.”In the present work, we focus on the study of the southern massive YSO cataloged as the Red MSX source G029.862–0.044 (hereafter G29). (…) The surrounding interstellar medium of G29 is studied using molecular lines data. (…) The physical conditions of G29 molecular outflows and the clump where the YSO is embedded are characterized,” the astronomers wrote in the paper.The observations allowed the astronomers to detect molecular outflow in G29, what is typical for YSOs at the earliest stages of formation. In particular, they found a red molecular outflow, but they were not able to distinguish any blue molecular outflows. This is most likely due to the presence of a dense concentration of cold dust southwards of this YSO as such feature could hide the blue outflows.The researchers also estimated physical parameters of the red molecular outflow, obtaining a mass of around 82 solar masses and an energy of approximately 20 quattuordecillion erg. According to the paper, these values are characteristic for molecular outflows.Moreover, the scientists characterized the molecular cloud in which G29 is embedded in, unveiling its morphology and calculating its mass. They estimate that mass of the cloud is at a level of some 10,000 solar masses.Furthermore, studying G29’s surroundings, the team found that the emission in the Ks-band towards this YSO showcases a cone-like feature pointing to the northwest in direction to the red molecular outflow. This feature was observed to have two arc-like structures, similar to what was found in massive YSOs with precessing jets.The authors of the paper concluded that the detected near-infrared emission at the Ks-band towards G29 most likely arises from a cavity cleared in the circumstellar material by the action of a jet. They added that this emission may be in fact due to a combination of various emitting processes.”Further investigation is needed in order to determine such processes. We are currently analyzing in detail the near-IR data set (the JHKs broadbands and specially the emission lines observed with the narrow-bands), which will provide valuable information about the origin and physical processes taking place in this intriguing structure,” the researchers wrote. Astronomers have conducted a multiwavelength study of a young stellar object (YSO) known as G29.862–0.044, which provides more hints into star-forming processes. Results of the study, presented in a paper published April 24 on arXiv.org, could be important for improving our general knowledge about how stars form and evolve.

3 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global October 24, 2013 Pinterest has raised an additional $225 million in capital, bringing its valuation to a whopping $3.8 billion.The pinboard photo-sharing social network scored the funds in a Series E round, led by Fidelity Investments with participation from Andreessen Horowitz, Bessemer Venture Partners, FirstMark Capital and Valiant Capital Partners.This latest round comes on the heels of its February round of $200 million.”We hope to be a service that everyone uses to inspire their future, whether that’s dinner tomorrow night, a vacation next summer, or a dream house someday,” CEO Ben Silbermann said in a statement. “This new investment enables us to pursue that goal even more aggressively.”The funds will be used for international expansion, mobile, acquisitions, growing its IT infrastructure and monetization – something the startup desperately needs to support its valuation.Related: Pinterest Marketing Tips: What You Can Learn From 20 Big Brands To date the startup has raised $564 million without any visible source of revenue. But that will soon change.Initially, when Pinterest launched in 2010 anyone could sign up under a personal account and post, or pin, images to his heart’s content. The startup then rolled out business accounts. The move allowed Pinterest to distinguish individuals who were say, just posting a picture of a dessert they wanted to try, from companies, like restaurants, that were hawking their famous banana cream pie to entice people to visit their business.But companies aren’t dumb. With the business account launch, it seems like some business owners on Pinterest may have been wary of making the transition away from personal account status, as the word business could imply spending cash to stand out from the crowd (this isn’t their first social-network rodeo). And with the recent announcement of “promoted pins,” (a.k.a. advertising), it seems having businesses stand out is exactly what Pinterest has up its sleeve. To up the ante and get more businesses to make the switch, Pinterest is currently allowing companies to use this feature free of charge.Related: Advertisements Are Coming to Pinterest Now, TooIn a recent blog post, Silbermann stated, “Nobody’s paying for anything yet—we want to see how things go and, more than anything, hear what you think.”Keyword: “yet.” It just seems like a matter of time that the dream tree house you have been ogling over, you soon will be able to buy, or at the very least fork over cash to stay in on vacation, and Pinterest, along with the businesses, will earn revenue.While this injection of capital may seem high, the funding is in line with other social networks. Private (and struggling) social network Path has raised $41.2 million, location-based Foursquare has locked in $112 million, Facebook raised $2.33 before its IPO and Twitter is no small fry, raising $1.16 billion before it goes public. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Register Now » read more

0 Comments Share In the second quarter, Peterson intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass intended for Johnson, got back to his feet and weaved through Lions’ players all the way down to the Detroit three-yard line. Two plays later, Beanie Wells plunged into the end zone from two yards out, giving the Cardinals a 14-7 lead they’d never relinquish.“It was everything I thought it would be,” Peterson told the Arizona Cardinals Radio Network after the game. “He’s a great athlete and a tremendous, tremendous receiver. I give the guy the utmost respect because he continues to do what he’s known for week in and week out.“It was definitely a tough task for me, like I said throughout the week — it was going to be a measuring stick for me and I thought I measured up pretty well here today and hopefully I can keep that going for the rest of the season.”Peterson finished the game with a team-high seven tackles and broke up two passes in addition to his game-changing interception. He now has seven interceptions on the season, which is tied for the second-most in the league.“I just wanted to be physical, I wanted to meet him at the line of scrimmage each and every down,” Peterson said. “Each and every down, I wanted to draw a line in the sand just to let him know this was the type of game it was going to be. “Those guys came out with a great game plan, but we knew what they wanted to do and we picked them off the way we needed to.”When Peterson wasn’t one-on-one with Johnson, cornerback William Gay and safety Kerry Rhodes double-teamed the All-Pro, similar to outside coverage on a punt return, to help keep him in check.“I didn’t necessarily agree with the coverage but the head man (Ken Whisenhunt) has the last say, so he thought that would be the best opportunity to slow him down a little bit and that’s what we did.”Whisenhunt said the Cardinals’ game plan for Johnson wasn’t necessarily original.“There’s other teams that have done that,” Whisenhunt said. “New England’s done it before and Kansas City we’ve seen do it before, so it’s not a completely new approach but part of it was to let them know we were going to take him out on that play. That puts the onus on other guys that they’ve got to be able to cover when we know that they’re not going to go to Calvin Johnson.“It was a good scheme, our defensive staff did a great job and our players executed it well.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo – / 26 GLENDALE — When two 4-9 NFL teams get together in mid-December, sometimes you’ve got to search long and hard for interesting storylines to make the game a little more palatable.That storyline this week was the NFL’s best receiver, Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions, against one of the top young cornerbacks in the game in Arizona’s Patrick Peterson.Johnson did catch 10 passes for 121 yards, but Peterson and the the Cardinals defense kept Johnson out of the end zone in a convincing 38-10 win at University of Phoenix Stadium — and the second-year man from LSU had his fingerprints all over it. Top Stories Johnson had nothing but praise for Peterson following the contest.“Good corner,” Johnson said. “Good ball skills, overall a good player, man. It’s a pleasure to play good players in this league — because it’s some great competition and he’s one of the good ones.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact read more
