[NEW] Episode of Blackjack podcast with guest, the Rainman : gambling

Hello everyone! [NEW] Podcast Episode

Just wanted to let the community know there is another new episode of my AP Blackjack Podcast live right now. This episode has an interview with a young AP named “Rainman” he’s very sharp and has his game down. But, I think he brings fresh eyes and a fresh perspective to the game. Like all of us when we first started out, he still has some of the tougher aspects of actually APing in a live casino to learn that only come with experience, but I think it’s a worthwhile listen for both experienced and inexperienced AP’s to hear his POV at this stage of his AP journey.

You can find the podcast by simply googling “Tens and Aces Podcast” or searching for it in your favorite podcast player.

Here’s a few handy links as well:

How To Play Roulette – Master Roulette Rules, Odds, and Payouts

Start the Patrick Surtain II Hype Train

The Super Bowl just wrapped up with another Tom Brady-inspired victory, and it’s time for the Minnesota Vikings offseason. Aside from Gary Kubiak’s retirement, his son’s subsequent promotion to dad’s old job, and a little false trade-Kirk-Cousins scuttlebutt, the Vikings “month off” during playoff time has remained quiet.
Now that can change. The offseason has arrived.

Foremost, general manager Rick Spielman has some excruciating decisions to make on the roster existences of Kyle Rudolph, Anthony Harris, Anthony Barr, and Riley Reiff. At least one of those names will return in 2021 – probably – and maybe even two. But half of those four longtime Vikings will play football for another NFL team next season. And it’s all about money.
After that, Minnesota must evaluate its remaining dollars, if any, for free agency. The Vikings have naughty holes on the offensive line, and the defensive line could likely stand an upgrade at a position or two. Spielman might find the necessary coin to land one big-name free agent (or handful of smaller names). Most Vikings loyalists would nominate a stud offensive guard like Brandon Scherff of Joe Thuney for this assignment.
The final piece to the offseason puzzle is the draft – which the Vikings nailed in 2020. Minnesota must have a 2020-like draft this April to preserve its win-now Super Bowl aspirations. Otherwise, butt cheeks will roast for the Vikings coaching staff in late December.

That’s the offseason agenda in a nutshell. A customary kickoff for the draft hype train begins with Patrick Surtain II, a highly-touted cornerback from the University of Alabama.
Uncertainty with Mike Hughes
Surtain II, 20, would be a stellar addition to virtually any NFL franchise – if scouting reports are telling the truth. Son of former NFLer, Patrick Surtain, the junior Surtain was phenomenal in college. He won a National Championship last month, won Unanimous All-American honors in 2020, and was the SEC’s Defensive Player of the Year.

In April, Surtain is slated as a Top 15 selection and probably closer to Top 10 or Top 8. The Vikings sit at pick No. 14, so the team can hope Surtain II falls to them or trade up a bit to secure his services.
The primary reason Surtain II would be plucked by the Vikings is the uncertainty surrounding Mike Hughes. There is no consensus – at all – if the 23-year old Hughes will pan out. Minnesota selected him with a 1st-Round pick in 2018, but Hughes has battled injury ad nauseam since his addition to the team. When he plays, Hughes is quite good. He is not Pro Bowl-ish, and that is probably because of his young age. In theory, if he can stay healthy, he should mature into his true form in 2021 and beyond.

But can the Vikings bank on that? What if he falls injured again? Then, the team is left with the same scenario as last season – two young corners in Cameron Dantzler and Jeff Gladney and a hodgepodge of project players.
That didn’t go swimmingly in 2020.
Can a Team Have Too Many CBs?
Head coach Mike Zimmer loves his cornerbacks. There are jokes aplenty about it. His background fancies defensive secondaries, so naturally, he loves to encourage his general manager to grab them in the 1st-Round. And that’s when Surtain II enters the chat.
If Surtain II tumbles in April’s draft – yes, that happens – he is probably too irresistible for a Zimmer-led squad to ignore. The Vikings were owners of the NFL’s ninth-worst passing defense in 2020 – a wildly disappointing departure from the Zimmer standard of 2014-2019. Zimmer has ammunition ready to make this a defensive-themed draft.
Hughes, theoretically, will help anchor the secondary, but what if he’s injury-prone once again? The team is left with Dantzler, Gladney, and others. Surtain II would be a scintillating “other.” Should Hughes show up in Week 1 and shut down receivers right and left – boom – Surtain II will be an observer to astute cornerback play and can potentially in fill gaps during Dantzler and Gladney’s absence.
The NFL gets pass-happier each season. “Too many good cornerbacks” is an odd complaint – especially the affordable ones that the Vikings currently employ.
The Karl Scott Connection
Last week, Minnesota hired Karl Scott from – you guessed it – the University of Alabama to coach the team’s defensive backs. Scott coached Surtain II for the Crimson Tide. This is where the hype train starts chugging.
Coaches enjoy “their players,” and Scott would likely not object to bringing Surtain II from the collegiate level to the pros right along with him.  Scott should know Surtain II better than anybody in the country, hence a package of Scott-Surtain II to Minnesota adds up.
Now for the difficult part: The Vikings must hope Surtain II doesn’t fly off the board in the Top 10 – because then Spielman would have to move-and-shake via trade to land his surfaces.
But Surtain is dangerously close to the Vikings in some mock drafts. Check out Bleacher Report’s post-Super Bowl edition.

Rich Goldman Holdings Limited issues profit warning


Asian junket operator Rich Goldman Holdings Limited has reportedly announced that it expects to detail a loss of approximately $2.32 million for the six months to the end of December owing to depressed demand linked to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
According to a report from Inside Asian Gaming, the Hong-based firm revealed that it intends to publish its audited financial results for the six-month period at the end of February with the anticipated result set to represent a decrease of 200% year-on-year. The source detailed that the enterprise formerly known as Neptune Group Limited blamed the expected shortfall on coronavirus alongside the cessation in April of its long-standing association with a fellow junket firm that had run eight VIP gaming tables inside Macau’s iconic Casino Grand Lisboa property, which is owned by SJM Holdings Limited.
Compounding concern:
Rich Goldman Holdings Limited reportedly divulged that associated six-month revenues from its hotel operations are moreover expected to have crashed by at least $258,000 year-on-year due to the coronavirus-induced downturn in business to leave it with a minimum impairment loss of some $1.5 million and a fair value setback on its investment properties of around $774,000.
Promising prospects:
However, the Hong Kong-listed operator reportedly also explained that these losses are to be partially offset by an expected increase of about $645,000 in revenues from its money lending business. It pronounced that its prospects are to furthermore benefit from an alliance it signed in December that is to see it launch a VIP gaming parlor inside the Philippines’ 800-room Solaire Resort and Casino venue from Bloomberry Resorts Corporation.
Read a statement (pdf) from Rich Goldman Holdings Limited…
“The company is still in the course of finalizing the results for the 2020 interim period. Therefore, the actual financial results for the 2020 interim period may differ from the information contained in this announcement. Shareholders and potential investors are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the shares of the company.”

The Time I Broke Into a Casino : gambling

And suddenly, as I looked around, a crowd of people surrounded me. I was at the craps table, up $200. The die were hot that night. The people were cheering me on. “Lucky 7’s!”, they hollered. I cast the die one final time and…

Hold on hold on, before I get to the good stuff let me take you back to where this really began. It all really started about a month or two before. A good buddy of mine, Jimmy, had bought a poker set. You know, nothing too fancy. Jimmy was a simple guy, we’d invite the guys over to his garage, sip bourbon, hack cigs, and throw in some logs. Some nights, when there was more whiskey in us than water, we’d wager some money. Nothing big, you know? Just maybe a $10-$20 buy in. I was a decent player I’d say. For me though, it wasn’t really about the money. I enjoyed the thrill of it, watching the river turn, going all in on a bluff when all I would have is a dirty pair of 2’s. Stuff of that sort. Soon we got into things like blackjack, and eventually we bought some old rickety roulette board that could barely spin on its axis. But it worked, none the less. I enjoyed watching the ball dance between red and black when I’d have some $25 placed on red. I always loved red, that color never did me wrong. Things continued like this for the next month. It wasn’t long before I was up a few bucks, and I started to get it in me that it was time to hit the big leagues. There was a casino in our small town not too far from where we lived. And I had a shitty old fake from Missouri. Birth year was 98, and the name was Phil. I don’t know why, but I always liked that name. So I headed to the gambling joint to dance in the devil’s playground. Upon my arrival, I was bombarded with bright lights, sweet aromas wafting from the diners, and a feeling of excitement arose within me. I wanted to fit in, so I wore a leather jacket, white washed jeans, and my nicest pair of boots. I handed the chump at the front desk my fake, and to my surprise I breezed right by. I was in. Now from the snippets of a book I had bought, and a handful of youtube videos, I learned craps gives you the best odds. So I decided to go to the craps table. I started off small. $5 bets, $10, and before I knew it I was up quite a bit. People started to watch me, enjoying this young kid run it up at the table. The old men liked my spirit, and in between roles I had some casino skanks flirting with me and offering me drinks. I was having the time of my life. I was up $200 in the blink of an eye, when all I came there with was a crumpled 20 and a dream. I decided to place a $100 bet on 7’s, I was feeling myself. I was shaking up the die, ready for a roll. People were excited, and hell, even the worker at the table was enjoying it. Then, as I cast the die, a hand snatched me by my arm. I heard a voice say, “Phil, huh? Yeah, you’re coming with me.” I turned, and it was a state trooper with black shades on.

Super Bowl LV: Bucs shut down Chiefs, Brady wins 7th

With so many incredible storylines heading into the game, many of us were convinced that this would be one for the ages. I, myself, called it the “Passing the Torch” Bowl (https://worldinsport.com/super-bowl-lv-passing-the-torch/), and several others played it up as the Greatest of All Time versus the Greatest of this Time. Sadly, we did not get that game in Super Bowl LV.
It appears the Super Bowl LV headlines we should have been paying more attention to were the Chiefs playing without Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz. Or maybe about how great the Buccaneers pass rush is, or how lockdown their secondary can be. In previous articles, I highlighted the dominance of Devin White and Sean Murphy-Bunting (https://worldinsport.com/buccaneers-d-frustrates-the-saints-chiefs-hold-on-without-mahomes/), yet somehow I believed the Kansas City offense could handle anything.
We also should have taken more time to focus on how great Tampa Bay’s offensive line is. Minus the first couple series, Tom Brady stayed clean throughout Super Bowl LV. Huge holes were opened for Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones when it came time to consume the clock. The screens were unstoppable and the big play was open, as a result of the dominance from the O-line. For more on the OL’s Super Bowl LV performance: https://touchdownwire.usatoday.com/2021/02/07/super-bowl-lv-super-bowl-55-ali-marpet-tom-brady-ryan-jensen-buccaneers/fbclid=IwAR1RZAhWEpCBRCc7Cc0DdaINy5gWlESkQudi6IEBhZeehuz_iz2YlnGCJIU
Enough talking about what the headlines should have been. Let’s take the rest of our time to acknowledge some greatness, and how it was on display in Super Bowl LV. Let’s talk about our 2021 World Champion and Super Bowl LV victors, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here are my top 5 individual performances
Tom Brady wins number 7

Tom Brady Wins His 7Th Super Bowl And 5Th Super Bowl Mvp
The Super Bowl LV MVP himself, Tommy Terrific, earns a historic 7th Super Bowl ring and cements his legacy as the GOAT. Many of his critics (including me) have been hesitant to call him that, wanting to say that Belichick could have gone on the same run with Manning or Rodgers. After Super Bowl LV, however, I’m tired of denying the truth: Brady is the Greatest of All Time.
Now, I’m not saying that I think he was the best player on the field last night. I am not saying he earned the Super Bowl LV MVP, as I believe a few of his teammates were more deserving. He was, however, the greatest story of the night. With that 7th ring, he now has more Super Bowl victories than any other TEAM in the history of the NFL.
Brady’s game performance was also great. Behind a clean pocket, he completed 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards and 3 touchdowns. And these weren’t just tacked on touchdowns at the end, these were the 3 scores that gave the Buccaneers a 21-6 lead at halftime. His brilliant leadership and age-defying talent were on full display, as he skilful exposed the Chiefs secondary.
To go with this unprecedented 7th ring, this was his 5th Super Bowl MVP. It would be hard to imagine these marks notwithstanding the test of time. https://www.buccaneers.com/news/tom-brady-named-super-bowl-lv-mvp-sblv-55-buccaneers
Shaq Barrett owned Mahomes personal space

Shaq Barrett Hounded Pat Mahomes All Day Sacking Him Twice 1
Someone who is only observing the stat line might quickly question why they should care about Shaq Barrett. He only had 1 regular tackle, 1 stuff and 1 quarterback sack on paper, but that does not even come close to covering his impact.
Now, I know I’m going to draw flack for saying this, but Barrett was the true MVP of Super Bowl LV. Anyone who took the time to pay attention to number 58 during the game, clearly saw him in the backfield over half the plays he was on the field. A quick scroll through Buccaneers’ photo gallery of top plays will verify his impact: https://www.buccaneers.com/photos/best-photos-from-chiefs-vs-buccaneers-super-bowl-lv#43950c61-bd3d-4798-b97b-e2a802585a12
Early in the game, Barrett was all over Mahomes on key incompletions that stalled promising Chiefs’ drives. Noticed Mahomes limping? It started after Shaq knocked him down. Remember the other two Tampa sacks? Barrett was there assisting them, despite not receiving credit. I know JPP and Suh were brilliant, but Shaq was the leader of the pass rush last night.
If it wasn’t for the fact that Mahomes is so brilliant at extending the play, and willing to just throw it up for grabs, Barrett would have easily collected 3+ sacks. Instead, his value is measured in pressures and knockdowns. The Bucs defensive line pressured Mahomes on an NFL record 52% of his dropbacks. Barrett and his fellow linemen won Super Bowl LV in the KC backfield.
Devin White was anywhere and everywhere

Devin White Owned The Center Of The Field Versus The Chiefs
Everyone on the Tampa defense made their fair share of plays, but no one seemed to be in the middle of them more than Devin White. Whether it crunching Tyreek Hill for crossing over the middle or punishing Mahomes for tucking the ball and running, White was a tackling machine that seldom allowed the play to get past him. He accumulated 12 total tackles during Super Bowl LV.
It’s not just the tackling that makes White brilliant, however, its his vision and ability to go wherever he is needed on any given play. Many times during Super Bowl LV, he could be seen with tight coverage of the receiver slanting over the shallow center. It didn’t matter whether it was Tyreek, Kelce or CEH, he kept up with each, and when he did allow a catch, he punished them.
White also converged into the Chiefs’ backfield many times, delivering a pair of stuffs and breaking up several plays before they came to fruition. And when all was all but said and done, it was White who intercepted Mahomes one final time, to put the icing on Super Bowl LV. As a captain, he led the Bucs D to a historic night versus the high-powered Chiefs offense.
In total, White had 12 total tackles, 2 stuffs, 1 defended pass and 1 interception.
Gronk hits the history books again

Gronk Scores His First Of Two And The Games First Touchdown
Before Super Bowl LV began, Jerry Rice was the only receiver to ever score multiple touchdowns in multiple Super Bowls. Move over Rice, and make some room for Gronk. At the start of the second quarter, Rob Gronkowski hauled in his second touchdown pass from Brady and entered the history books yet again.
In addition to this achievement, his 5 Super Bowl touchdowns put him second on the Super Bowl receiving touchdown list. Only Rice remains ahead of him with 8.
Gronk’s night doesn’t rely on it being historic for it to be impactful, but rather the opposite. His first touchdown gave Tampa a 7-3 lead (which they would never relinquish), and his second put them up 14-3. These touchdowns turned out to be early back-breakers that KC would never come back from, rather than just tack on points. Legendary and clutch describe Gronk’s 6 receptions for 67 yards and 2 scores.
Lavonte David keeps Kelce in “check”

Lavonte David Gave Travis Kelce Trouble All Day Long
I thought back and forth whether this should be Leonard Fournette or Lavonte David. I know, Fournette piled up 135 total yards and a second-half score that put Tampa Bay up 28-9. I know, Fournette helped to control the clock and run out the game in the second half. Playoff Lenny was a key contributor to the Bucs post-season run and Super Bowl LV victory and thus deserves this honorable mention.
What Lavonte David did, however, was special. David lined up against arguably the best player on the field and held him in check. Yes, I know that Travis Kelce still caught 10 receptions for 133 yards, but those numbers are very skewed. On all but two drives, David helped to keep Kelce a non-factor. And even on those two drives, he held him out of the end-zone.
Kelce had a historic season and was key to Chiefs’ victories throughout the playoffs. David had plenty of help but knew that Kelce was his responsibility. And he rose to the challenge. Lavonte managed to contain Kelce before the game got out of control, breaking up passes, hitting him hard and ensuring the tackle when the completion was made. He defended 2 passes to go with 6 tackles, while containing KC’s top weapon.
A few final thoughts…
Despite the horrible defeat, Patrick Mahomes played the gutsiest game of his career, hobbling on one leg while taking a constant beating. We hope for a successful surgery and speedy off-season recovery.
Antoine Winfield Jr secured an interception and proved he will be one of the best safeties of the next generation. Though trolling a team when you are blowing them out is poor sportsmanship, when you do it to Tyreek Hill you are a hero.
Sean Murphy-Bunting and Charlton Davis are both elite corners who can hang with anyone. They match up with speed incredibly well.
Barrett, JPP, Suh and Vita Vea are the most dominant front four in football. Sorry, Pittsburg.
Travis Kelce had a “bad” game and still caught 10 passes for 133 yards. He is the best receiver in the NFL.
The Tom Brady versus Tyrann Mathieu accentuates the poor officiating of the first half. I’m not saying the officiating team was unfair or on the Bucs side, but I am saying that a decent officiating staff would not have allowed the game to devolve to that point. Also, Brady could just as easily (if not moreso deserved) that flag.
And finally, the streaker was the highlight of the second half, and Kevin Harlan is an absolute legend!

The Derrick Rose trade could work for Knicks, but only if Immanuel Quickley is allowed to grow

Derrick Rose is headed for New York… for the second time.Image: APDerrick Rose is back in his second home. The New York Knicks re-acquired the former MVP in a deal over the weekend with the Detroit Pistons, confirmed on Monday morning. The Knicks sent a 2021 second-round pick and enigmatic 2017 top-10 draft choice, Dennis Smith Jr., to Detroit.It’s a return to NYC that nobody really asked for, but one Knicks fans shouldn’t be mad at unless the team decides to keep Elfrid Payton beyond the March 25 trade deadline. The deal reunites Rose with the head coach he’s had the most success with in Tom Thibodeau, and gives the Knicks a top-six-or-seven rotation piece at the minimal cost of a non-rotation player and a second-round draft choice. Rose is also in the final season of a two-year deal worth $15 million total. Quietly, Rose has played his best basketball post-ACL tear since initially joining the Knicks prior to the 2016-17 season. In the last five years, Rose has averaged 16.6 points and 4.3 assists while shooting over 47 percent from the floor, and that includes a bizarre stint with Cleveland Cavaliers, as well as a nine-game cup of coffee with the Minnesota Timberwolves that same 17-18 season, when he appeared to be at the end of the line before a resurgence the following year. (Should be noted that Rose did average over 14 points, shot nearly 51 percent from the field and 70 percent from three in five playoff games with Minnesota that season, though, in his only taste of playoff basketball without the Chicago Bulls.)In 2018-19, Rose produced the highest offensive rating of his career, 114 per 100 possessions. Last season with the Detroit Pistons, his 109 O-rating was the fourth-highest of his career, and his 25.1 points per-36 minutes were a personal best, one whole point higher than his 2010-11 MVP campaign. In both the last two seasons, Rose finished in the top-seven of Sixth Man of the Year voting, successfully reinventing his basketball career as a scoring lead guard with above league average playmaking abilities. This season, Rose is good for 14.2 points and 4.2 assists in just under 23 minutes per game, though he only shot 43 percent from the field, but give him a break, he was a Detroit Piston. Per-36 minutes, Rose’s averages sit at 22.4 points and 6.6 assists. For reference: This is slightly up from his 20.3 points and 6.4 assists per-36 during his seven-season Bulls tenure. (No, he’s not a better player now, necessarily.) G/O Media may get a commissionThe Knicks indisputably got the best player in the deal, but if Payton remains on the team, and or the acquisition of Rose stunts rookie Immanuel Quickley’s growth, what’s the ultimate benefit? At 11.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game, while logging the fourth-most minutes on his team (28.5), Payton’s statistically one of the NBA’s least productive starting point guards, and would be better served coming off the bench for a contender instead of standing in Quickley’s way. Quickley is averaging 12.0 points and 2.7 assists while logging only 18.9 minutes per contest. He’s also shooting 36.3 percent from three, and providing more hope for Knick fans than fellow Kentucky-alum Kevin Knox ever has. Quickley’s minutes have been as consistent as his shooting, but if the Knicks are ever going to conclude their seemingly multiple decades long rebuild, developing young talent is the essential method. Quickley doesn’t need 30 minutes per night, but he should hover around at least 20-25 for the bulk of his rookie campaign, unless he Swanton Bombs into a rookie wall. And Austin Rivers has been exactly who Austin Rivers has been throughout his career, which isn’t to say that it’s bad; it’s to say that Quickley’s development should supersede a nightly 8-2-2 in 23 minutes. IQ already has eight games of 16 or more points, including four of 23-plus. Play Rose, play Quickley; play Rose with Quickley, but clear the way by dealing Payton (and perhaps other stuff to acquire draft capital or a player to help your playoff push) elsewhere. .

2021 MLB Top Prospects: Ranking the rookies, sleepers to add to your fantasy baseball draft cheat sheets

While many things about the 2020 season were unique, the flood of prospect talent into the majors represented the continuation of a consistent multi-year trend. Half of last year’s preseason Top 50 MLB Prospects saw big-league action despite the shortened campaign, and you can bet there will be plenty more in 2021. That means fantasy baseball owners need a special spot on their draft cheat sheets and rankings (particularly keeper/dynasty rankings) for these potential rookie sleepers.
Last season, Seattle’s Kyle Lewis and Chicago’s Luis Robert, who finished 1-2 in the AL Rookie of the Year voting, each clubbed 11 home runs, a rate that would have translated to 30 dingers over a full 162-game season. Lewis also swiped nine bags to lead all rookies. Alec Bohm solidified himself as the Phillies’ third baseman of the future by posting a .338 average and a .400 on-base percentage over 44 games. Bohm finished second in the NL Rookie of the Year voting to Milwaukee’s Devin Williams, who used an unhittable changeup to post a 0.33 ERA while striking out an unbelievable 53 batters and giving up just eight hits in 27 relief innings. Cleveland’s James Karinchak wasn’t far off Williams’ pace, as he also struck out 53 in 27 innings while giving up just 14 hits.

A total of 29 rookie pitchers held rotation spots for at least 50 percent of the season, and 11 of those hurlers posted an ERA under 4.00. Kansas City’s Brady Singer led rookie pitchers in strikeouts (61), innings pitched (64.1) and games started (12) while posting a solid 4.06 ERA, with Oakland’s Jesus Luzardo close behind (4.12 ERA and 59 Ks in 59 IP). Other impact rookies hitters included San Diego’s Jake Cronenworth (.285/.354/.477), Detroit’s Willi Castro (.349 average and six HRs), Oakland’s Sean Murphy (seven HRs and .364 on-base percentage), the Angels’ Jared Walsh (.293 average and nine HRs), and the Dodgers’ Edwin Rios (eight HRs and .645 slugging). Top pitchers included Houston’s Cristian Javier (3.48 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 54.1 IP), Seattle’s Justus Sheffield (3.58 ERA over 10 starts), and two rookie hurlers, Dustin May (2.57 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 56 IP) and Tony Gonsolin (2.31 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 46.2 IP), who helped solidify the World Series champion Dodgers’ rotation down the stretch.In addition to all the players mentioned above, a number of prospects who retained rookie eligibility and are still on this list made positive first impressions during limited big-league debuts. Tampa’s Randy Arozarena, Pittsburgh’s Ke’Bryan Hayes, Atlanta’s Ian Anderson, Miami’s Sixto Sanchez, Texas’s Dane Dunning, and Cleveland’s Triston McKenzie are among the 20 guys on this list who saw major league action in 2020.The result is a deep pool of big-league ready prospects who promise to make a significant impact in 2021. While prospects have played an increasingly significant part in every season over the past six years, this year could see the largest crop of impact rookies in recent memory.2021 MLB Top Prospects1. Wander Franco, SS, Tampa Bay. Franco remains the top prospect in baseball despite not seeing any official game action in 2021. He did play at the team’s alternate training site where he got experience against advanced pitching. Franco will turn 21 in March and should make his big-league debut this season. A switching-hitting shortstop who can hit for average and power, he’s an elite offensive talent with outstanding plate discipline and contact skills (83 BB and just 54 K in 768 pro plate appearances). He’ll need to use his lower body more in his righthanded swing to fully unlock his power potential, and defensively he may eventually move to second or third. However, wherever he lines up in the field, his bat is good enough to make him an All-Star.2. Adley Rutschman, C, Baltimore. Rutschman has only 130 official pro at-bats under his belt and posted a modest .254 average in his brief 2019 minor-league debut, but he’s a top-tier talent who could be a perennial All-Star backstop. He reportedly performed very well at the team’s alternate training site in ’20, and, at 23, has a mature offensive and defensive game. Rutschman is has the potential to hit for power and average and profiles as a plus defender behind the dish. Offensively, Rutschman uses plus bat speed and good lower body explosiveness to generate plus raw power. He also shows good plate discipline, which should allow him to hit for average and get on base at a high rate. The rebuilding Orioles have no incentive to rapidly push him to the majors but we should see him in the bigs at some point in ‘21.3. Julio Rodriguez, OF, Seattle. Only 20, Rodriguez already has elite raw power. In 2019, he hit .326 with 12 HRs in 84 games split between Low-A and High-A, then impressed as the youngest player in the Arizona Fall League. Last season, he fractured his wrist in summer camp, returned to form in instructionals, and then got some work in the Dominican Winter League. Rodriguez isn’t a polished hitter and will chase pitches, but he’s a hard worker who should improve his approach as he matures. If he continue to develop, Rodriguez has the potential to bat in the middle of a big-league lineup while slugging 30-plus HRs a year.4. Sixto Sanchez, RHP, Miami. Sanchez made his big-league debut in 2020 and looked every bit the future ace. Just 22, he showed off a mature, improved physique that helped him pump his fastball up into triple-digits. His electric heater and plus change elicited lots of swing-and-miss, and he got batters to chase out of the zone at an elite rate. Sanchez will open the season in the Miami rotation, and if he can continue to refine his command and sharpen his breaking ball, he’ll quickly reach his ceiling as a No. 1 starter.5. Jared Kelenic, OF, Seattle. Kelenic had a breakout season in 2019 (.291/.364/.540 with 23 HRs and 20 SBs) and spent ’20 facing top quality pitching at the alternative training site. Although he’s just 21, he’s a polished hitter who reached Double-A in ’19. Kelenic has plus bat speed and an efficient swing path that generates plus raw power. He also has a strong work ethic and has made steady skill improvement in his short pro career. Kelenic has the potential to hit 25-plus home runs and post a .280 average in the bigs. Don’t be surprised to see him in Seattle in ‘21.6. Marco Luciano, SS, San Francisco. Luciano had an electric pro debut as a 17 year old in 2019 (.302 average with 10 HRs and nine SBs in 179 at-bats between Rookie ball and Low-A) and then spent ’20 as the youngest player at the Giants’ alternate training site. He’s a long way from the majors, but he’s flashing elite talent, featuring electric bat speed and prodigious power. He’ll need to keep improving to stay at shortstop, but he’s shown a good work ethic and has the raw tools to stick at the six.7. MacKenzie Gore, LHP, San Diego. Gore was probably the best pitcher in the minors in 2019 (1.69 ERA, 135/28 K/BB and just 56 hits allowed in 101 innings between High-A and Double-A) but reportedly showed inconsistent mechanics during his time at the alternate training site in ’20. At his best, Gore has good command of four pitches (plus low-to-mid-90s fastball, plus curve, above-average slider, and solid changeup). He mixes his pitches well, attacks hitters, and shows the poise of a front-line starter. The Padres’ stacked rotation means that there’s no need to rush Gore to the majors. However, if he can maintain the consistency of his delivery, he profiles as a No. 1 starter and could make his big-league debut in late ‘21.8. CJ Abrams, SS, San Diego. Abrams had a stellar pro debut in 2019 (.393 average and .647 slugging with more stolen bases (15) than strikeouts (14) in 150 at-bats between Rookie ball and Low-A) and then got in significant development work against older competition at the alternate training site in ’20. Abrams’ package of plate discipline, contact ability, emerging power, and plus speed make him one of the highest-upside prospects in the minors. He’ll almost certainly spend all of ’21 in the minors (barring a trade), but he has the makings of an All-Star shortstop or second baseman at the big-league level.9. Michael Kopech, RHP, Chicago White Sox. Kopech missed the 2019 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery, then opted out of the 2020 campaign. Kopech has been dominant at every level as a pro and was overpowering in ’18 during his first three big-league starts before falling victim to injury in his last outing. When healthy, Kopech dominated hitters with an upper-90s fastball and plus slider. In ’18, Kopech had tightened his command and was learning how to attack hitters. Health and potential rust raise questions about his future, but if he return to his pre-injury form, Kopech has the makings of a No. 1 starter.10. Nick Madrigal, 2B, Chicago White Sox. Madrigal made his big-league debut in 2020 and performed as advertised (.340 average in 103 at-bats). A separated shoulder, which required offseason surgery, will keep him out until possibly April or May. When healthy, Madrigal displays elite contact skills and plus speed. He won’t hit for any power, but he could compete for a batting title while stealing 20-plus bags per season and playing plus defense at second base.11. Ian Anderson, RHP, Atlanta. Anderson was a revelation during a late-season six-start stint with the Braves (1.95 ERA with 41 strikeouts and just 21 hits allowed in 32 innings) and should open the 2021 campaign in the Atlanta rotation. Anderson has a plus change that was virtually unhittable last season, a plus mid-90s fastball, and a solid change. If he can continue to improve his command, he has the stuff to be a No. 2 starter.12. Spencer Torkelson, 1B/3B, Detroit. Torkelson was drafted first overall in 2020 and spent the summer at the alternate training site. A polished hitter with excellent plate discipline and plus-plus power, Torkelson profiles as a middle-of-the-order force with 30-plus HR potential in the majors. His defensive home is a question, though. If he can play third as the Tigers hope, his value increases, but even if he is relegated to first, he still has the bat to be an above-average first baseman.13. Nate Pearson, RHP, Toronto. Pearson had a breakout year in 2019 (2.30 ERA with a 119/27 K/BB and just 63 hits allowed in 101.2 IP between High-A, Double-A, and Triple-A), but his command deserted him and he was shut down with elbow soreness in ’20 during a rough five-game big-league debut. At his best, Pearson shows good control of an excellent high-90s fastball, a plus slider, and a solid change. His health history is a concern and his sudden loss of command in ’20 is worrisome, but he still profiles as at least a No. 2 starter in the majors. He’ll get another shot at big-league success as a staple in the Jays’ rotation this season.14. Ke’Bryan Hayes, 3B, Pittsburgh. Hayes has always been a plus defender, but his offense was limited by his failure to fully use his lower half in his swing. This season he adjusted his balance and finally started to incorporate his hips, leading to a breakout performance during a brief big-league call-up (.376 average with five home runs in 85 at-bats). Hayes approach needs work and he’s still gaining consistency with his new mechanics but he now looks like a guy who could hit .275 with 25 home runs over a full season. He’ll get the chance to show what he can do as the Pirates starting third baseman in 2021.15. Jasson Dominguez, OF, New York Yankees. Dominguez is just 18 and hasn’t yet played pro ball in the U.S., but he has as much potential as anyone in the game. A switch-hitting center field with plus power and plus speed, Dominguez already has a polished swing path that produces outstanding bat speed from both sides of the plate. He’s a long way from the majors, but he has the tools to be a 30-30 guy.16. Luis Patino, RHP, Tampa Bay. Patino put up big numbers in 2019 as a 19 year old (2.57 ERA, 123/38 K/BB and only 69 hits allowed in 94.2 innings mostly at High-A), then had a bumpy big-league debut as a reliever before being traded to the Rays in the offseason. In ’20, Patino’s normally solid command deserted him, as he walked 14 in just 17 innings. The Rays are looking to him to pitch at the back end of their rotation in ’21 and Patino should right the ship under Tampa’s excellent pitching development program. At his best, Patino has electric stuff, featuring an upper-90’s heater, a sharp slider, and a decent changeup. If Patino can recover his command and find more consistency with his slider, he has all the makings of a No. 2 starter.17. Spencer Howard, RHP, Philadelphia. Howard was great in 2019 (2.03 ERA with a 94/16 K/BB and only 43 hits allowed in 71 innings over three levels) but then struggled in six big-league starts last season. At his best, Howard has elite stuff including a mid-to-high-90s fastball, a plus change, and a plus breaking ball. In his big-league starts, his fastball was solid but he didn’t command it in the zone and his change, which usually features good sink, was flat and got clobbered. If he can maintain his normal stuff and improve his command, he has the potential to be a No. 2 starter and should be a mainstay in the Phillies rotation this season.18. Luis Campusano, C, San Diego. Campusano received a surprise call-up in 2020 and wasted no time making an impression, homering in his first contest. A wrist sprain then shelved him for the rest of the season, but he should be good to go for ’21. The Padres’ acquisition of Austin Nola means that Campusano will probably spend this season in the minors, but he has the potential to be an All-Star caliber backstop. Campusano was the High-A California League co-MVP in ’19. With great balance and leverage, plus bat speed, and excellent plate discipline, Campusano has the tools to hit close to .300, post a high OBP, and slug 20-plus homers in the majors.19. Casey Mize, RHP, Detroit .Mize was outstanding in 2019 (2.55 ERA, 106/23 K/BB and just 80 hits allowed in 109.1 innings split between High-A and Double-A) but then struggled in seven big-league starts in ’20. Mize has three plus pitches (nasty splitter, mid-90s fastball, and sharp slider), but his stuff was flat, with merely average movement and spin. At his best, he shows excellent command, a repeatable delivery, and an ability to mix pitches. If he can regain his sharpness and reassert his command, Mize has the potential to be a frontline starter, but his disappointing debut cast some doubt on his ultimate upside.20. Dylan Carlson, OF, St. Louis. Carlson had a breakout 2019 campaign (.292 average and .372 on-base percentage with 26 HRs and 20 SBs in a season spent mostly at Double-A) and then struggled in an initial big-league cameo before being demoted and eventually turning things around after a second promotion. His hot finish should make him the favorite to start in left field for St. Louis this season. The switch-hitting Carlson has a bit more power from the left side, but he shows good bat speed and excellent hand-eye coordination from both sides. With solid pitch recognition and plus raw power, Carlson has the potential to hit .275 with 20-plus home runs over a full season in the bigs.21. Matt Manning, RHP, Detroit. Manning was outstanding at Double-A in 2019 (2.56 ERA and 148/38 K/BB in 133.2 innings) but was reportedly shut down with fatigue in ’20 after spending part of the summer at the alternate training site. Despite his age (23) and pro success, he’s still very much a work in progress. The lanky righthander has an electric mid-90s fastball, a plus curve, and a developing change. He also mixes in a slider and shows good control but his stuff can be inconsistent. The Tigers have no reason to rush him to the majors and should give him the chance to refine his stuff and improve his consistency in the minors this season. Long-term, he has the tools to be a No. 2 starter.22. Andrew Vaughn, 1B, Chicago White Sox. Vaughn had a modest pro debut in 2019 (.278 with six HRs in 205 at-bats in Rookie ball, Low-A, and High-A) but impressed at the alternate training site last season while showing he could handle advanced pitching. Vaughn also gained some experience at third base and in the outfield, which could open up more avenues to the bigs for him in ’21. Overall, Vaughn is a polished hitter with a compact stroke and good plate discipline. He should hit for a decent average and draw plenty of walks. If he can better use his lower body to create leverage and loft in his swing, he has the bat speed to hit for above-average power.23. Triston McKenzie, RHP, Cleveland. McKenzie has always had good stuff, but he had a hard time staying healthy and his slight frame raised questions about his long-term role. McKenzie quieted the critics in 2020 with an eye-opening big-league debut (3.24 ERA and 42 strikeouts and a .179 BAA in 33 innings). McKenzie now enters the season with a chance to stick in the Cleveland rotation. The slender righthander has above-average command of four pitches: High-spin low-90s fastball, plus curve, improved slider, and solid change. If he can stay healthy, he has the stuff to be a No. 2 starter.24. Joey Bart, C, San Francisco. Bart had a rough big-league debut in 2020 (.233 and no HRs in 103 at bats), but he’ll probably get more minor league development time in ’21 and still projects as an above-average big-league backstop. Bart is an above-average defender and has shown a good work ethic as a pro. He was off-balance at the plate in ’20 which resulted in weak contact against fastballs. He also chased breaking balls at a high rate, leading to an elevated strike out total. If he can settle down and regain his balance, there’s no reason he can’t eventually hit for a solid average while clubbing 25-plus home runs over a full season.25. Logan Gilbert, RHP, Seattle. Gilbert had an excellent 2019 (2.13 ERA and 165/33 K/BB in 135 innings combined between Low-A, High-A, and Double-A), then impressed at the team’s alternate training site last year. Going into ’20, Gilbert already had good command of a polished four-pitch repertoire (mid-90s fastball, solid slider, plus curve, improved change) but reportedly made strides with both command and stuff and now profiles as No. 2 starter. Gilbert will probably begin the season in the minors but should be in line for a big-league call-up by midseason.26. Daniel Lynch, LHP, Kansas City. Lynch was a solid prospect in college, but he’s developed into one of the best lefthanded pitching prospects in baseball. He performed well in 2019 (3.10 ERA in 15 starts at High-A) and then wowed at the alternate training site in ’20. Lynch now sports an impressive four-pitch mix featuring a dynamic mid-90s fastball and a plus slider. He’ll probably open the season in Double-A and could compete for a big-league rotation spot by mid-season. Long-term, he now projects as a No. 2 starter.27. Randy Arozarena, OF, Tampa Bay. Arozarena was a postseason force during the Rays’ World Series run and now looks like a budding star. His electric bat speed produces elite exit velocity, and his good balance and direct swing path provide the leverage for his plus raw power. He’ll need to show he can hit breaking balls more consistently, but he already has the tools to hit .270 with 25-plus home runs. If can continue to improve against benders, he could be even better.28. Keibert Ruiz, C, Los Angeles Dodgers. Ruiz was on the fast track to the bigs when he had a forgettable 2019 campaign and was overtaken on the Dodgers’ depth chart by Will Smith. He then spent the majority of ’20 at the alternate site and got a brief big-league cameo in which he belted a home run in his first at-bat. The lost season may have been a blessing in disguise for Ruiz, who was able to refine his hitting mechanics with L.A.’s first-rate hitting coaches while also working to improve his fringy defensive skills. Ruiz may not get an opportunity in L.A .,but he should eventually be a major-league regular whose excellent plate discipline and good hand-eye coordination should allow him to hit for average and get on base at a high clip. If he can improve his defense and improve his currently average power, he could be an All-Star.29. Corbin Carroll, OF, Arizona. Carroll had a good pro debut in 2019 after being selected in the first round (.299/.409/.487 with 18 stolen bases in 154 at-bats between Rookie ball and Low-A) and then opened eyes at the alternate training site in ’20. Just 20, Carroll already has good plate discipline and emerging power. With plus speed and good defensive chops in center field, Carroll has all the tools to be an above-average big leaguer. He’ll probably begin the season at High-A, but he eventually could be a 20-20 guy who hits for average in the bigs.30. Deivi Garcia, RHP, New York Yankees. Garcia made his big-league debut last year, and at 21, he enters the season with a shot to stick in the Yankees rotation this year. Garcia has a four-pitch mix, including a plus curve, a lively low 90s fastball, a solid change and a developing slider. Garcia’s curve wasn’t that sharp during his six major league starts, but his fastball was an effective weapon. If he can regain the normal bite on his curve while continuing to refine his changeup and improve his command, he has the potential to be a No. 2 or 3 starter.31. Alex Kirilloff, OF, Minnesota. Kirilloff has battled injuries throughout his pro career, but when healthy he’s a polished hitter with above-average power. He made his big-league debut in the 2020 postseason and will compete for a starting outfield spot in ’21. Kirilloff shows good pitch recognition and the bat speed to handle plus velocity. His smooth swing path and great balance allow him to drive the ball to all fields. Long-term, he has the potential to hit for average and stroke 20-plus HRs while playing a solid corner outfield in the bigs.32. Francisco Alvarez, C, New York Mets. Just 19, Alvarez is already an advanced hitter with the potential to be an offensive force. In 2019, he hit .312 with seven home runs in 157 at-bats at Rookie ball and then performed well against much older competition at the alternate training site. He needs to improve defensively to stick at catcher, but he has the tools to be the rare backstop to hit for both average and power in the bigs.33. Emerson Hancock, RHP, Seattle. Hancock was drafted sixth overall in 2020 and saw limited action at the alternate training site. Hancock isn’t a finished product – his fastball can be flat, he could improve his command, and his breaking stuff isn’t always consistent – but he has the ceiling of a No. 1 or 2 starter. Hancock has solid command of a four-pitch mix, runs his fastball up to the high 90s, and gets good extension which allows his stuff to jump on hitters. He’ll almost certainly spend all of ’21 in the minors, but given Seattle’s excellent pitching development program, he could be fronting the Mariners rotation as early as ‘22.34. Royce Lewis, SS, Minnesota. Lewis has seen his star fade since being drafted first overall in 2017. He remains a top prospect, but inconsistencies in …

Australia wants Thai man suspected of using Crown to launder money

Chung Chak “John” Lee laundered millions of dollars through Crown Resorts casinos in Australia. That’s the allegation against him as Australian authorities try to get him extradited from Thailand. Apparently, as has already been demonstrated on several occasions, Crown Resorts made it easy for individuals to pass huge bags of money through its operations without many questions asked, and Lee may have been one of those who took advantage of the casino operator’s lax policies.Lee was arrested in Thailand this past December, accused of being an international drug lord and a part of The Company, an international crime syndicate. The organization has been on the radar by law enforcement around the world, as well as the United Nations, for managing around 70% of the methamphetamines that entered Australia. However, Lee wasn’t just into drugs and led activity in both Hong Kong and Bangkok that catered to high-rolling gamblers. He didn’t just offer them a connection to the tables, though. He reportedly had joined forces with Crown to drive business and, according to investigators, laundered millions of dollars through Crown’s casino in Melbourne in 2012.This isn’t the first time that Lee’s name has been linked to Crown. The Company was featured in news pieces on several occasions last year and the year before, all showing how easy it was to use Crown’s operations to launder funds. Those reports, and Lee’s illicit activity, are what led to the investigation into Crown’s history and New South Wales’ Bergin inquiry into the company’s ability to hold a gambling license. That inquiry is expected to wrap up at any time, and Crown is facing the possibility of losing its license and/or being forced to completely revamp its executive ranks to appease regulators.The 65-year-old Lee is reportedly a high-ranking boss in the 14 K Triad and is said to have spent the past 30-plus years running illegal drug operations across the globe. He is also said to have connections with Broken Tooth, another notorious triad boss reportedly on the run somewhere in Malaysia. Lee apparently has well-placed connections, including in some high-ranking offices in both Taiwan and Thailand. That might create some delays in his extradition to Australia, but it’s not likely to prevent it, unless he figures out a way to conveniently escape before the extradition order can be approved.

MGM Resorts International Named A FORTUNE “World’s Most Admired Company”

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) is on FORTUNE’s 2021 list of the World’s Most Admired Companies, available online at www.FORTUNE.com.

The survey, regarded as a definitive analysis of corporate reputation, ranked MGM Resorts among the best in the world in the category of Hotels, Casinos and Resorts. The list is a ranking of the world’s most respected and reputable companies, as ranked by peers in their industry.

MGM Resorts, a leading global hospitality company, not only offers some of the most recognizable resort brands in the world, such as Bellagio, ARIA and MGM Grand Las Vegas, but also holds itself to a high standard within the community.

“We’re proud of the work we’ve done to adapt and continually provide unmatched guest service through this period of uncertainty,” said Bill Hornbuckle, CEO & President of MGM Resorts International. “Furthermore, as a long-standing leader in the hospitality and entertainment business, we take seriously our Social Impact and Sustainability obligations and brand reputation as we strive to make the world a better place.”

In May 2020, MGM Resorts released its Seven-Point Safety Plan outlining the comprehensive health and safety protocols the company began to implement prior to re-opening its domestic resorts, which were temporarily closed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This multi-layered set of protocols and procedures, designed in partnership with medical and scientific experts to deter the spread of the virus, was one of the first of its kind.

Last year, in Southern Nevada alone, the company donated 444,000 pounds of food, or 370,000 meals. Across regional properties an additional 219,000 pounds, or 182,000 meals, were donated, bringing the company’s total donation to over 662,000 pounds of food, or 552,000 meals. MGM Resorts also leveraged their procurement and logistics expertise to support the Nevada COVID-19 task force in procuring 261,000 hospital gowns, 200,000 medical gloves and 500,000 KN95 respiratory masks through MGM Macau.

Survey Methodology

Fortune collaborated with their partner Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputations. They began with about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. They narrowed the assortment to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 670 in 30 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that pool of 670; the executives who voted work at the companies in that group.

To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Korn Ferry asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
