    St. Louis Cardinals fans know a ban of the shift will transform one former player back into an All-Star — Matt Carpenter. After Twitter learned the new collective bargaining agreement between the MLB owners and players association may include the banning of the shift, Cardinals fans knew this meant a potential return to greatness for Matt Carpenter. Carpenter’s club option was not exercised for the 2022 season after a steep decline in performance. Carpenter’s decline could easily be attributed to other clubs implementing the shift. The strategy proved successful for opponents when Carpenter came to bat. Carpenter never could beat the strategy leading to a massive decline in performance.Matt Carpenter and the ShiftIn 2018, Carpenter hit .257/.374/.523 with 36 home runs and 42 doubles. In 2021, Carpenter hit .169/.305/.275 with three home runs and 11 doubles. Most of this decline can easily be attributed to Carpenter’s failure to beat the shift. In recent reporting, it was learned Carpenter “never bought into analytics” which could have helped him to figure out ways to beat the shift. With the shift being banned,...
    Barry Bonds will not be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2022 after not getting 76 percent of the vote for the 10th straight year. But can he still get in? Not that it was necessarily unexpected given the narrative from the Baseball Writers of America over the past nine years, but the final tally for the National Baseball Hall of Fame vote was revealed and Barry Bonds, once again, fell short of the 75 percent of votes needed to get inducted into Cooperstown. The San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates legend has every accolade you could ever ask for in terms of his on-field performance. He’s the all-time home runs leader, a seven-time NL MVP, and probably the greatest hitter to ever step up to the plate. Yet, his PED links have kept him off. Unfortunately, though, this was his 10th year on the BBWA ballot, meaning it was his final year. So now fans are asking the simple question of if this is it for Barry Bonds and his chance to get into the Hall of Fame.Will...
    BOSTON (CBS) — While David Ortiz got his call to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday, four polarizing and controversial players in baseball history did not. For Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Curt Schilling and Sammy Sosa, Tuesday was their last chance to make it to Cooperstown by way of traditional voting. All four fell short of getting the required 75 percent of votes in their tenth and final season on the ballot, with Bonds getting 66 percent, Clemens 65.2 percent, Schilling 58.6 percent and Sosa just 18.5 percent. Those four will no longer appear on the BBWAA ballot, so their next shot to get into the Hall of Fame rests on the Today’s Game committee, which will vote at next December’s Winter Meetings. Bonds, Clemens and Sosa certainly put up Hall of Fame numbers during their career, but all three are clouded with PED controversies. Schilling came close to getting his call to Cooperstown, but a series of controversies in his post-baseball days derailed his chances. The former Red Sox postseason hero was just 16 votes short of...
    Former Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz was voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame while Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Curt Schilling all fell short of the 75% threshold needed in their final year of eligibility. Also known as "Big Papi," Ortiz, 46, played for the Boston Red Sox from 2003 to 2016. He was the only player on a ballot of 30 retired players to gain entry into the Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America. He was voted in with 77.9% of the votes revealed on Tuesday and did so on his very first ballot. CURT SCHILLING IS HALL OF FAME-WORTHY, REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT HIM The Red Sox won three World Series Championships while Ortiz was on the team. He is widely credited with helping the Red Sox overcome their 86-year championship drought, which the team did in 2003. He also previously played for the Minnesota Twins from 1997 to 2002. He was a dominant hitter and currently holds the Red Sox's record for most hits...

However, some retirees may be hit with a costly surprise: higher Social Security levies and Medicare premiums.  During the first six months of 2021, U.S. muni bond funds brought in an estimated $56.9 billion in net new money, the most for any first half of the year since 1992, according to Refinitiv Lipper data.  With current yields above Treasurys, muni bonds have been attractive to wealthy investors, and typically avoid federal taxes on interest. Moreover, many of these assets scored a credit boost in 2021 as federal stimulus money reached state and local governments.  However, before funneling cash into muni bonds, investors must consider their entire financial situation, according to experts. "There are a lot of moving parts, and you need to have someone look at it holistically," said Matthew Chancey, certified financial planner at Dempsey Lord Smith in Tampa, Florida.Higher Social Security taxes and Medicare premiumsAlthough tax-exempt muni bond...
    New York Yankees fans are freaking out after trading struggling slugger Mike Ford to the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have a habit or turning other teams’ trash into treasure. Does that mean they hit on every trade? No, not so much. Not every team is the Pittsburgh Pirates, dealing Austin Meadows and Tyler Glasnow for Chris Archer. However, if Ford hits one home run against the Bronx Bombers, that’s one too many. Next: 3 replacements the Yankees could hire if they fire Aaron Boone
    NORTH MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) –  A 28-year-old woman who police say posed as a student and snuck into American Senior High School to try to promote her Instagram page, has bonded out of jail. According to the police report, Audrey Nicole Francisquini, walked right into the school on Monday, located at 18350 NW 67 Avenue dressed like other students. She was even wearing a backpack and carrying a skateboard.

School security confronted her while students were in class and she claimed she was a student looking for the registration office, according to the report. But instead of going to the office, she continued to walk through the halls and stop students as they tried to enter their classrooms. School security confronted her again, but she refused to stop. That’s when administration was advised of a “potential threat on campus.”...

    Biden plans to purchase of 200M more doses of Pfizer, Moderna COVID-19 vaccines Priest leaves Wisconsin diocese after performing voter fraud exorcisms No one was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year For the first time since 2013, baseball’s Hall of Fame voters elected … no one. Curt Schilling? Just short. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens? Still nope and nope. New-to-the-ballot stars Torii Hunter and Mark Buehrle? Not even close.  Seventy-five percent of the vote from the Baseball Writers Association of America is needed to get into Cooperstown. Schilling was the closest at 71.1 percent, just 16 votes shy. Clemens (61.6) and Bonds (61.8) were next. All three of them now head to the ballot next year for their 10th and final year. Scott Rolen (52.9) and Todd Helton (44.9) showed impressive gains that may put them on track for Cooperstown one day, but they’re still quite a ways off. It’s only the third time in the past 25 years that no one was elected by the writers. The other time came in 1996, when Phil Niekro...
    At least Cooperstown will have Derek Jeter this summer. A year after the former Yankee came one vote short of becoming the second player unanimously selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, it’s expected that no players will get enough votes for enshrinement when it’s announced Tuesday by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. As of Tuesday afternoon, Curt Schilling was at 75.1 percent of votes counted by Ryan Thibodaux and tallied on Twitter @Notmrtibbs. And while that would be enough for the 75 percent cutoff for entry, percentages consistently drop off significantly once all the votes are counted. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were the only others tracking at over 70 percent Tuesday, both near where they were at this time a year ago, when they also came up well short. If none of the three makes it Tuesday, it will be the first time in eight years no one is elected to the Hall of Fame. That was also the first year Schilling, Bonds and Clemens were on the ballot. Nine players from that 2013 ballot, including...
    Barry Bonds, the seven-time National League MVP, 14-time All-Star and all-time home run king, is once again expected to fall shy of receiving the necessary votes required to be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The 2021 ballot marks the ninth time Baseball Writers Association of America voters have had the opportunity to elect Bonds and while the percentage of votes he receives continues to increase annually, the former San Francisco Giants star remains on the outside of the hall looking in. When Hall of Fame voting results are revealed at 3:15 p.m. PT on Tuesday it’s possible and perhaps even likely that no players will have received the necessary votes — 75% of the electorate — to ensure a place in Cooperstown. Three-time World Series champion and 216-game winner Curt Schilling appears to stand a better chance than Bonds as well as pitcher Roger Clemens. But people who follow Hall of Fame voting closely are not bullish on Schilling’s chances. Related Articles San Francisco Giants developing plans to reopen Oracle Park to fans ...
    The Wall Street Bull (The Charging Bull) is seen during Covid-19 pandemic in New York, on May 26, 2020.Tayfun Coskun | Anadolu Agency via Getty Images Money is pouring into stocks through exchange-traded funds.  You can thank the potential vaccines. Money is pouring in because U.S. investors who have been reluctant to put money into equities are now stampeding into stocks on the belief that that the "Covid winter" of 2020 will be followed by the "Reopening spring" of 2021, and many are choosing ETFs as that investment vehicle.  The Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) industry in the U.S. surpassed $5 trillion in assets under management last week, a new record. Record highs for stocks was a big help, but over $400 billion in new money has poured into ETFs this year, only the second time it has passed $400 billion in a single year. By comparison, inflows stood at $246.6 billion at this same point last year, according to ETF.com.Heavy inflows into stocks in NovemberInflows into plain-vanilla equity ETFs like the S&P 500 (SPY), Vanguard Total Stock Market (VTI), and the...
    By Fabian Cambero and Aislinn Laing SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Chilean President Sebastian Pinera on Friday signed into law a plan to allow citizens to withdraw 10% of their pensions savings as people queued at the administrator's offices in Santiago eager for relief from the economic effects of the coronavirus. The law, approved by two-thirds of legislators on Thursday, was created to give quick cash to millions of Chileans who lost jobs because of the economic shutdown aimed at slowing the spread of the virus. The Office of the President said Pinera had signed the bill late on Friday but made no comment on its content. Pinera`s centre-right government had opposed the emergency relief measure, saying it would support citizens through the public purse instead. It has also warned about the longer-term impact on the profitability and already low average payouts of pensions. Despite those pleas, queues formed on Friday outside the offices of Pension Fund Administrators (AFP), with opinion polls indicating nearly nine out of every 10 Chilean planned to tap their funds. Most said they would use the money...
    Uncertainty abounds as college teams scramble to find games In 1915, Kids Went to School Outside During a Pandemic. Why Not Now? This might be ‘the worst time in history’ to pile into these stocks, but investors keep doing it anyway IN ONE CHART © Getty Is it time to stop inflating high-flying growth stocks? Two of the most reliable patterns in investing, according to Servo Wealth Management CEO Eric Nelson: Stocks outperform bonds and low-priced value beats higher-priced growth. Stocks have held up their end of the bargain vs. bonds lately, but value stocks have been a loser. Investors feeding on the growth trough would be wise to be wary of a return to historical norms. And those historical norms show that value, as measured by the Fama/French U.S. Value Index, has beaten growth by 12.8% a year vs. 9.7% on the Fama/French U.S. Growth Index, historically. That spread is almost as big as the one between stocks and bonds, Nelson explained. Over the past decade, however, growth stocks, led by a concentration of high-flyers,...
