Interest in Cherington adds wrinkle to Blue Jays’ off-season planning

  Interest in Cherington adds wrinkle to Blue Jays’ off-season planning Ben Cherington, the former GM of the Boston Red Sox who’s now a key part of the Toronto Blue Jays’ decision making team, is a candidate for the vacant Pittsburgh Pirates GM job. In fact, some outside executives see him as the leading candidate to succeed Neal Huntington in Pittsburgh. The post Andrew Raycroft on Leafs cutting bait on Michael Hutchinson, being a backup appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.In subtle ways, the Pirates’ search has already impacted the Toronto Blue Jays. Depending on how it ends, those repercussions could be felt more intensely within the coming weeks.

An untouchable number is a positive integer that cannot be expressed as the sum of all the proper divisors of any positive integer (including the untouchable number itself). That is , these numbers are not in the image of the aliquot sum function.

After the decline of the Indus Valley towns, these untouchables probably spread to other parts of India.[6] Scholars such as Suvira Jaiswal Untouchability is believed to have been first mentioned in Dharmashastra. According to the text, untouchables were not considered a part of the varna system

No one is safe in Pittsburgh.

That was the message delivered by Pirates principal owner and chairman Bob Nutting on Monday after introducing new general manager Ben Cherington.

"I told Ben from the beginning that no one on the roster, no one in the minor-league system, or no one on the staff is untouchable, that he needs to have the flexibility to be able to drive forward and build an organization that he is proud of and that our fans are going to be proud of and that Pittsburgh is going to be proud of," Nutting told Kevin Gorman of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The Pirates are in a transitional period after hiring Cherington and new team president Travis Williams, which could mean two-time Gold Glove outfielder Starling Marte - who's recently been mentioned in trade rumors - and All-Star first baseman Josh Bell are available.

Report: Blue Jays’ Cherington accepts Pirates GM job

  Report: Blue Jays’ Cherington accepts Pirates GM job Toronto Blue Jays vice president of baseball operations Ben Cherington has reportedly accepted the Pittsburgh Pirates general manager job. The post Kelly Olynyk on Heat season, career and representing Canada appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.According to multiple sources, Ben Cherington has accepted the Pirates GM job and is currently in Pittsburgh. Story to come.

Global icons, living legends, franchise cornerstone, and limitless rookies dot the 10-man list of untouchable players at the trade deadline.

Grant: Which players do you think Rutherford considers untouchable from a trade perspective? He still seems to be working through his issues with play away from the puck at an NHL level, but at a certain point you just need to see what you’ve got with him, and if he can cut it at the NHL level.

Although the Pirates finished last in the National League Central last season, posting their worst record since 2010, moves will only be made to help re-establish the franchise as a winner, according to Cherington.

"Everything we do is focused on moving closer to a winning team or sustaining winning," the GM explained. "That's the lens that I would look at it through. There will be opportunities that come up this winter or over the course of the next year that we will evaluate on the merit of whether that's getting us closer to a winning team."
