Sport Viktoria Berlin hopes for second third-league season
Washington Nationals sued by ex-employees over vaccine firing
The Washington Nationals are being sued by two former employees who were fired for refusing to comply with the team’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Lawrence (Larry) Pardo and Brad Holman were pitching coaches in the Nats’ organization. The two refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine for religious reasons and were fired by the Nats as a result. The team instituted a mandate on Aug. 12 that went into effect on Sept. 10, leading to the firing of both men.Now the two have filed a lawsuit against the club, TMZ Sports reports.
Viktoria Berlin continues to see in a development process in the 3rd football league. With the team from Regionalliga players, a development within a season is hardly possible. "For that, you need a second season, hopefully we will get this," says Viktoria coach Benedetto Muzzic at the game of the newcomer on the 17th matchday at the 1st FC Saarbrücken on Saturday (14.00 o'clock / magenta sport).
, however, emphasized the 43-year-old that the difference between regional league and the third league is not so huge, also in the direction of second league not. The narrowness of the league after 16 matchdays confirms the exercise leader. Viktoria is located as ninth with 22 points five points behind the ascent relegation place and six points before the first relegation place.
White Sox activate slugger Eloy Jimenez from IL
In a corresponding roster move, Chicago optioned infielder Jake Burger to Triple-A Charlotte. It's believed Jimenez will get most of his at-bats as Chicago's DH with rookie Andrew Vaughn patrolling left field. Over his first 177 career regular-season games, Jimenez crushed 45 home runs with 120 RBI, a .276 average and a .848 OPS. The White Sox enter Monday evening with a commanding nine-game lead over the second-place Indians in the American League Central standings, and it's rumored Cleveland could be a seller rather than a buyer this week.
The Berliners themselves have already felt this tightness of the league. After the first eight playing with 17 points, Viktoria was on the second place in the table - even after the two 4: 0 successes against Eintracht Braunschweig and the 1st FC Kaiserslautern. In the following eight games, only five counters jumped out - including the defeats against the co-headers from Havelse and Freiburg.
Muzzico is not necessarily sad about development after the first eight games. "It would be a pity if it had been so on," said the 43-year-old. Then his players would probably have been believed to have already received the third league maturity. "It's more important to me that the team assumes our philosophy as any opponent sweeps from the square," says the coach.
and philosophy sees courageous football, which of course also causes mistakes as in the past game at 1: 1 at home against relegated Würzburger Kickers. "We suck everything up and want to do it better," says German Italians.
Senators' Josh Brown out four to six weeks with upper-body injury .
The Ottawa Senators were only just getting a semblance of an NHL roster back after a COVID outbreak forced them to play shorthanded, but they haven’t been anywhere near their expected group all season. Injuries have struck several key players, and now Josh Brown is going to be out long-term with an upper-body injury. Head coach D.J. Smith told TSN radio today that Brown will miss four to six weeks. © Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports It’s not that Brown is a lynchpin defender or anything, but the Senators depth just continues to be depleted.
