Robert Thomas, commander, U.S. 7th Fleet, delivered remarks before several hundred participating U.S. Navy Sailors and members of the Republic of Singapore navy. Thomas noted that CARAT Singapore stood out as the premier navy engagement since the exercise series began in 1995.“Nearly twenty years later, thousands of CARAT Singapore alumni have risen through the ranks of the RSN and the U.S. Seventh Fleet, strengthening our military to military relationship and contributing to regional security and stability in ways that benefit the entire region’s maritime nations,” said Thomas.Continuing through Aug. 8, CARAT Singapore 2014 consists of 11 days of shore-based exchanges and a highly complex at-sea phase. During the shore phase, personnel will conduct engineering, aviation, culinary and sports exchanges on the Changi Naval Base waterfront. U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and RSN boarding teams will conduct maritime security training at the Singapore Police Coast Guard Brani Base.During the five-day sea phase, guided-missile destroyers USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108) and USS Halsey (DDG 97) with embarked helicopters, the fleet replenishment oiler USNS Rappahannock (T-AO 204), a P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and a fast attack submarine will train with an RSN task group composed of Formidable-class frigates, Victory-class corvettes, Fearless-class patrol vessels, an F-50 Fokker maritime patrol aircraft and an S-70B helicopter.“CARAT Singapore brings together some of our most capable forces to train with our RSN partners,” said Rear Adm. Charlie Williams, commander, Task Force 73 and 7th Fleet’s executive agent for Theater Security Cooperation in South and Southeast Asia.“Not only do we have two destroyers and, for the first time, a P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft, but Destroyer Squadron Seven is leading the CARAT Task Group for the second consecutive year while forward deployed to Southeast Asia,” Williams said during a press conference with international media.Capt. Fred Kacher, Destroyer Squadron 7 commodore, noted that he looked forward to getting underway with his RSN counterpart, Col. Ken Cheung, commander, 1st Flotilla, and the opportunity for more than 1,400 personnel from both navies to work together. “From maritime security training, to anti-air and anti-submarine exercises, to cross-platform personnel exchanges, CARAT helps us strengthen our ability to work together and develops young, culturally adept leaders who will lead our Navy’s next generation in this very important maritime region,” said Kacher.In its 20th year, CARAT Singapore is part of a series of bilateral naval exercises between the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the armed forces of nine partner nations in South and Southeast Asia.

Net gains for Willie Mullins at Punchestown

Posted on by

first_imgNet D’Ecosse pulled out all the stops to see off a JP McManus duo in the Punchestown For Events Beginners Chase. “He was a bit fortunate, but jumped well until the last,” said Mullins of the winner. “I’d say he will go up in trip. Christmas will probably come a bit soon and we’ll find something for him in the New Year.” He added: “Blazer jumped well, but just didn’t have enough speed when they quickened. He’ll go out in trip as well.” A six-month break proved no hindrance to Winter Magic (7-1) in the Buy Your Tickets Online At www.punchestown.com Handicap Chase. Jimmy Mangan’s seven-year-old hadn’t been seen in competitive action since running down the field here back in June, but he lacked nothing in the way of fitness as he accounted for the game pacesetter Kilcrea by four lengths. The Brock Inn (7-2) has won a bumper, on the level and now over timber thanks to her three-and-a-quarter-length defeat of Snaidhm in the Follow Us On Facebook And Twitter Mares Maiden Hurdle. Nevskij (7-1) proved too strong in the Racing Again At Punchestown On New Year’s Eve Hunters Chase. Press Associationcenter_img Willie Mullins’ 2-1 chance led approaching the last but was slow into it, over it and away from it, allowing Peoples Park to regain the initiative. Bryan Cooper forced Net D’Ecosse back in front on the line, though, with Blazer flying late to take third in the three-way photo. last_img read more

Gerrit Cole ‘flattered’ by John Smoltz saying Astros rotation better than ’90s Braves: We have a ways to go

Posted on by

first_img Chris Sale not optimistic umpire will be held accountable for missed calls: There’s nothing MLB is going to do Gerrit Cole was “flattered” by a comment from MLB legend John Smoltz, but wants to make sure the Astros don’t get ahead of themselves.Houston shocked the world Wednesday when it landed Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke in a trade in the waning moments of the deadline and Smoltz was one of the first men to congratulate Astros owner Jim Crane in a phone call, via MLB.com. “Man, you really did a great job of putting that together,” Smoltz told Crane.”Yeah, it looks like (John) Smoltz, (Tom) Glavine and (Greg) Maddux,” Crane replied. Related News “No, no, you guys are way better than we ever were,” Smoltz said.Astros owner Jim Crane said John Smoltz called him today to gush about his rotation: “Smoltz said ‘Man, you really did a great job of putting that together.’ I said, ‘Yeah, it looks like Smoltz, Glavine and Maddux.’ He said, ‘No, no, you guys are way better than we ever were.'”— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) August 2, 2019It’s a huge compliment coming from a man not only connected to one of the best rotations of all time, but also a guy who was in one of the most epic pitching matchups ever with Jack Morris in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series.Smoltz had the best stuff in one of the best rotations ever, so for him to say Houston is better than that assortment of Hall of Famers (Smoltz-2015, Maddux-2014, Glavine-2014) is a heck of a statement.Again, Cole was absolutely flattered, but he was the first to pump the brakes on those comments.“Thank you, John, for that, but some of us have a little ways to go,” he said after Houston’s 9-0 win over the Mariners on Saturday. Cole upon hearing John Smoltz told Crane the Astros rotation is better than 1990s Braves: “Thank you, John, for that, but some of us have a little ways to go.” pic.twitter.com/ujwJIetBjN— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) August 4, 2019For what it’s worth, the Astros have four pitchers this season in the top 12 in ERA (Cole, Justin Verlander, Wade Miley, Greinke), three in the top five in WHIP (Cole, Verlander, Greinke) and four in the top 20 in WAR (Verlander, Cole, Greinke, Miley).Those are numbers tough to match for any rotation. The Braves came close though on multiple occasions and did it for a very long time. This Astros rotation as currently constructed could be over at the end of the year if the team doesn’t re-sign Cole and Miley.But for now, it has caught the attention of the best pitcher with the best stuff in one of the best rotations ever. That is something in and of itself.last_img read more
