Yankees sign veteran RHP Jhoulys Chacin to minor league deal
Chacín has pitched in the big leagues in each of the past 12 seasons, although his playing time dwindled last year. After a pair of productive seasons in 2017-18 with the Padres and Brewers, Chacín struggled badly in 2019 between the Brewers and Red Sox. He posted just a 6.01 ERA over 103.1 innings (24 starts). While his 21.5% strikeout rate was actually his best mark since 2010, Chacín issued a few too many walks and was plagued by the home run ball. Some of his struggles were a product of an unsustainably high HR/FB rate, but Chacín’s once-lofty ground ball numbers had rapidly fallen off by 2019.
© T. BRAUT / TF1 / ITV The Voice: Solar Vianney, floodgates between coaches, impressive talents ... why we loved the first!
TF1 is launching the new season of The Voice this Saturday, February 6. A first session of blind auditions which delighted us!
One would have thought that after a decade of existence and the passage of nearly 1,200 talents, The Voice would have a hard time seducing us for this season 10 . But it is very bad to know the production of the tele-hook of TF1. Because the first evening of this new vintage sends "heavy", as the young people say. Despite a configuration complicated by the health crisis , and an audience made up of spectators who stayed at home and forced to intervene through 300 screens arranged around the stage, the chemistry is still there. Thanks in particular to a quartet of coaches who work wonderfully!
Solar-powered barge could take oyster farming deeper into Chesapeake
Two Maryland companies hope their invention can reduce conflict in the aquaculture industry. The two companies — Maritime Applied Physics and the EcoLogix Group — are developing a rig mounted with solar panels that holds oysters in vertical columns up to 20 feet deep. Oysters typically grow in cages or reefs resting on the bottom of shallow water or in cages floating at the surface, so this technology would allow oyster growers to better take advantage of deeper waters.
Coaches who provide…
Exit Lara Fabian and Pascal Obispo . If, for this season 10, the production has again called on Marc Lavoine and Amel Bent , they are joined by a "new kid", Vianney , and one of the emblematic coaches of the program, Florent Pagny , back after two years of absence. It is clear that this break was beneficial to him, given the renewed energy he displayed from this first episode. If the complicity between the four coaches is obvious, it is difficult not to emphasize the formation of two clans: on the one hand wisdom - embodied by Marc Lavoine and Florent Pagny - and on the other the ardor of Vianney and Amel Bent , who never stop looking for and teasing each other . Especially when it comes to bringing extraordinary talent into your team, as will happen many times in this first night of blind auditions. Once again, the production has unearthed nuggets, which will "pierce your heart", a new favorite expression of the coaches, repeated no less than six times by Vianney on this first Saturday!

… and talents that impress!
Of the fifteen talents of this first issue, many will be pleasantly surprised to see the four coaches turn around to try to recruit them into their team. " I should have blocked you ", even Amel Bent blurted out to Florent Pagny, facing a "nugget" coveted by the whole quartet. Blocking, precisely - a maneuver which consists in preventing another coach from recruiting a talent - will be at the center of the discussions, since neither the interpreter of My freedom of thought, nor Vianney, have yet used it. " I did it too late ", will miss the new one in front of a 19-year-old singer with a powerful voice. But if the quality of the talents of this evening reflects that of the entire 2021 batch, we can bet that he will very quickly be happy to have kept this joker in hand. Strongly the next week !
