If you want a starting pitcher on the market now, youre looking at about five options, and only two of them managed to be average Major League Baseball players last year.Suddenly, the second-best starter behind Rich Hill is Ivan Nova, the same Ivan Nova who spent 2014 and 2015 alternating between hurt and terrible, the same Nova who lost his spot in the Yankees starting rotation last year.Despite his flaws, the FanGraphs crowd projected?that Nova will sign a three-year, $43 million deal. Dave Cameron upped that to four years and $56 million but admitted, In a year, its either going to look like genius or foolishness, with the in between options looking less likely.Heres a bet that it will look foolish.

The national organization took a more aggressive stance Monday in the ongoing controversy surrounding the Quebec Soccer Federations decision to restrict turban-wearing Sikhs from the pitch, saying its earlier efforts had failed to resolve the matter. "The Quebec Soccer Federations inaction has forced us to take measures in order to ensure soccer remains accessible to the largest number of Canadians," it said in a statement Monday night. The national organization said last week it expected the Quebec association to reverse the ban, which has drawn international news coverage and condemnation from several federal politicians. The extent of the impact of the suspension on Quebec players is not yet clear. However, according to Canadian Soccer News, the impact could be felt in a variety of ways unless the situation is resolved soon. Its website said it could result in Quebec all-star teams being banned from play outside the province, and even the cancellation of games within Quebec that involve a nationally certified referee. "Unfortunately, that means soccer players are being punished for something that the Quebec Soccer Federation should have corrected right away," said Dr. Sanjeet Singh Saluja, a physician and former coach who publicly denounced the ban as having no medical justification. "Im sad to see it happen and Im sad to see that it went this far but unfortunately the Quebecc Soccer Federation, they chose not to follow the rules. Markus Nutivaara Blue Jackets Jersey. " The Quebec federation couldnt immediately be reached for comment. It has said it is concerned about safety and points out that the rules of the world governing body, FIFA, dont specifically allow turbans. Critics of the Quebec decision point out that FIFAs rules dont explicitly ban turbans, either. Some of those who opposed the ban said they welcomed the national bodys tough-love approach. Immigration Minister Jason Kenney tweeted his approval: "Good to see CDN Soccer Association take action against the Quebec Soccer Federation over its ridiculous turban ban." Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau echoed the sentiment, tweeting that "Barring kids from playing soccer because they wear a turban is wrong. The CSA is right to suspend the .QSF." The CSA reports directly to the FIFA world body and is responsible for granting or revoking the membership of provincial federations. The World Sikh Organization of Canada has expressed its sadness over the decision to suspend the Quebec Soccer Federation, and has again urged the QSF to immediately lift its turban ban. "Whereas Sikh children were initially the victims of the QSFs decision to uphold the ban on the turban, it is now doubly unfortunate that so many other soccer players in Quebec will also have to suffer the consequences," said WSO President Prem Singh Vinning in a statement issued late Monday. Vinning said the entire episode has been completely unnecessary and senseless, and the QSF should lift the turban ban for the sake of all soccer players in Quebec. ' ' '
