Dallas Keuchel tosses heckler a baseball that says 'Thanks for paying my salary'

If you heckle Dallas Keuchel, you might get a baseball. (Getty Images) Look at what Brandon Phillips has started! Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel responded to a heckling fan in Oakland not with his mouth, but with a baseball. Keuchel tossed this to the heckler: A ball @kidkeuchy tossed to a heckler sitting next to me #Astros #Athletics pic.twitter.com/rnZg5jRLwD— Nick Wong (@nickw888) July 24, 2014 Well played, Dallas, well played.  Phillips, the Cincinnati Reds second baseman, gave a signed ball to a drunken heckler in Pittsburgh last month, telling him to "shut up." Keuchel's ball probably isn't as cool as Phillips' (there's no signature), but it's still a clever retort that's turned into a cool piece of memorabilia.  The trouble with these types of keepsakes, though, is when the owner shows it off, he has to admit that he was being a butthead toward a baseball player.  Kuechel, in case you're wondering, is making $508,000 this season, a smidge above the MLB minimum. That works out to $3,135 per game. BLS H/N: Hardball Talk More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: - - - - - - - Mike Oz is an editor for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Telkom admits white staff at risk

Independent Newspapers Chief executive Sipho Maseko says Telkom is "changing its diet" with a plan to trim R1 billion from its cost base each year for the next five years. The Employment Equity Act will be followed when job cuts are implemented, he says. Photo: Simphiwe Mbokazi Telkom has acknowledged that white people would be most affected by a retrenchment plan that is expected to involve 2 600 managers at South Africa’s dominant fixed-line provider. The JSE-listed company was “changing its diet”, with a plan to trim R1 billion from its cost base each year for the next five years, chief executive Sipho Maseko said yesterday, adding that the Employment Equity Act would be followed when job cuts were implemented. As Telkom had not transformed the racial profile of its workforce fast enough, it would have to retrench more than 5 000 white employees to achieve its equity targets, trade union Solidarity said. Job cuts are part of the group’s plan to tighten its belt, which includes a decision to stop supplying bottled water to staff and reducing the average fuel consumption of vehicles in its fleet. Retrenchment decisions would be based on employment equity as well as skills and qualifications, Maseko said. “Where candidates are tied, the employment equity act becomes the tiebreaker, which is exactly what companies do when they recruit staff.” Telkomȁ...

'I Origins':The eyes have it

IN "I ORIGINS," super-smug atheist scientists set out to disprove the theory of intelligent design. I'd say you'll never guess what happens next, but who am I kidding? Of course you will. What kind of movie would it be unless the lead characters had their belief systems challenged? So the movie's predictable, but in a kind of brainy and semi-involving way - "I Origins" is another title from the Brit Marling/Mike Cahill/Zal Batmanglij gang ("Another Earth," "The East," "The Sound of My Voice"). They like to engage complex subjects and big ideas, write and research their own stuff, and here they plunge into DNA science. "I Origins" starts out with the idea that advocates of intelligent design point to the human eye as a challenge to Darwinism - there is no link in the evolutionary chain that could explain how sightless creatures acquired the power of vision. So a biologist (Michael Pitt) with a fixation on the human eye (in his spare time he photographs them) sets out to find that missing link, or to create it in the lab. He's a committed rationalist, which is ironically not rational, since he's met his wife, a deeply spiritual and other-wordly beauty (Astrid Berges-Frisbey), via a series of sequences/connections that defy reason. At the lab, he's partnered with her polar opposite - a coolly rational scientist (Marling), who works tirelessly to find a lower-order species that can be modified to acquire the characteristics of sight. That's as far as we should go with the plot, s...

Let’s see what is going to happen.”  Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Chelsea are in fact interested in Drogba It is a well known fact that Drogba is a much loved figure at Stamford Bridge after making a...  

India blocks WTO deal on customs rules as deadline nears

Reuters   Geneva, July 25, 2014 | UPDATED 12:23 IST India blocked an agreement on new global customs rules on Thursday, angering fellow members of the World Trade Organization who say Delhi's veto could be costly, economically and politically.At a meeting in Geneva, diplomats from the 160 WTO member countries were supposed to rubber stamp a deal on "trade facilitation" that was agreed at talks in Bali last December. Some estimates say it could add $1 trillion to the world economy and create 21 million jobs. World Trade Organization Director-General Roberto Azevedo gestures during a news conference in Geneva on April 14, 2014. Photo: ReutersBut India said it would veto the agreement until it gets what it wants in a separate area linked to its system of subsidising and stockpiling crops.Several countries issued statements saying that a failure to agree the deal would be a massive blow to the WTO, which is trying to emerge from a decade of failed negotiations on further liberalising global trade.WTO Director General Roberto Azevedo said talks were ongoing to try to resolve the problem before a deadline of July 31."We are informally talking, yes," he told Reuters. When asked what would happen if there were no deal by July 31, he said: "That's part of the conversation."A group of 25 countries including Australia, Canada, Colombia, Mexico, Norway, Switzerland and Thailand said they were "dismayed" at the failure to agree at Thursday's meeting.They warne...
