Hern Torres Resigned as Coach of the America


After the defeat of Saturday against the Envigado, the trainer will not continue to the front of the scarlet picture. Five points in the last nine matches for Liga guila. A team without depth, without ideas and on the verge of descent. That was the last face of Hernyn Torres as coach of America de Cali . The defeat against Envigado on Saturday night made him an unsustainable trainer: football did not accompany him, the results did not support him and the fans did not want him. So he decided to step aside.

America informs its numerous loyal fans, as well as the general public , that Mr. Hernyn Torres Oliveros has submitted his letter of resignation after the 2-1 defeat against the Envigado and that such resignation has been accepted by the directives of the institution, “” the scarlet team said in a statement.

Torres, who was one of the architects of returning to America in the first division after five years of hardship in the B , goes through the back door after a semester in which leaves the team located in position 14 with 12 points , three to get into the eight, but the team did not respond to the coach for some time and the results have not been the best.

In the absence of nine dates to finish the all against all, the scarlet box is placed in the penultimate position in the table of the descent. It has the same points of Jaguares, penultimate with 118 . However, he is above the Crdoba team by a goal difference. These two squads are four points behind the Tigers, who in recent games has shown a remarkable improvement.


America lost with Envigado and is Complicated in the zone of the Descent


The oranges with goals of Joseph Cox and Yossimar marked the goals of the Antioqueno team.

If a team is fighting for the descent, try to arm yourself well, hire experienced players to get out of that difficult situation. America did it . On paper it looked like a strong squad, but inside the field of play is something else. The table Vallecaucano entered a spiral of bad game, the players do not respond, it looks erratic and without ideas.

In the absence of nine dates to finish the all against all, a rope is tied to the neck difficult to release and is on the edge of the abyss of descent. Jaguars and Tigers lurk. With a pale game and no depth is doing everything to return to second division.

This Saturday again America lost. He fell 2-1 against Envigado at the Polideportivo Sur . He added his fifth defeat in the championship and the road seems increasingly thorny and full of obstacles.

Each time the panorama is darkened more for those directed by Hernyn Torres, who seems to find no direction. In the last nine games they have added five points. The constant errors of the defensive zone have the scarlet picture immersed in a crisis, which seems to have no end. And the coach seems not to know.

In the match against the oranges, Anderson Zapata was the player in whom all eyes fell. Scarlet team number three was compromised in the two scorecards. In the first, did not react to the rebound of goalkeeper Carlos Bejarano and Joseph Cox won the position and put the Antioqueos to celebrate. In the second never referenced his mark and Yossimar Quinez was completely free to jump, nod and score the goal that ended giving the victory to Envigado, who achieved his second consecutive victory in this Eagle League.


The Dodgers Centenary Franchise


With six World Series titles with 21 National League crowns and a huge desire to compete in the Fall Classic this year, the Dodgers have the passport secured at least for the postseason. What will happen from then on?
Dodger franchise, for more than a century , has been held by word of mouth among baseball fans and, of course , Major League fans .

When naming the Dodgers, it is undoubtedly thought of in those unequaled rivalries against the Giants and the Yankees, the three novenas that had seat in the State of New York, and that by those circumstances of the industry, they left its caves at Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds, the ball parks that thrilled sensational years of history inside Organized Baseball in front of Yankee Stadium’s ‘Mules’.

The truth of the matter is that, within that image made up of sacrifices, many stars, hundreds of baseball games with waste of quality and energy, the Dodgers accumulate , as very few teams, 21 National League crowns , 15 titles of the West division of the Old Circuit, but only 6 Awards of the Fall Classic , a small number of triumphs, if all the history of the club is taken into account.

In the 1960s, the Dodgers with their left-handed mound star, the man who “instinctively” launched , Sandy Koufax, thrilled their loyal followers who won the October 1963 Appointments in the face of their eternal former rivals, The Yankees, and 1965, against the Minnesota Twins.

But before those two crowns, the Dodgers had already won the 1955 World Series titles against the Yankees and in 1959 against the Chicago White Sox. And the other two October diadems for the Dodgers, came in 1981 by defeating the Yankees in the Classic, and in 1988, winning the Oakland Athletics . In other words, the franchise is a year from turning 30 without getting the maximum award of the Major League Baseball.
