Beane Defends Trades Despite As Early Exit - RealGM Wiretap
Billy Beane defended the midseason trades he made in July Wesley Matthews Mavericks Jersey , claiming the Oakland Athletics might not have played in the Wild Card game if not for Jon Lester.

The Athletics lost to the Kansas City Royals in the one-game playoff on Tuesday night.

"Simply put, if we don't have Jon Lester, I don't think we make the playoffs," Beane said.

Beane's other deals included the July 4 acquisition of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago Cubs for three top prospects.

"When we traded for Samardzija and Hammel, I think one of the first questions was, 'Why would you trade for two pitchers, you're first in the league in ERA?'" Beane said. "We weren't going to stay there. We knew it. Our job is to try and correct things before they become a problem, and some of the problems that we had we could see coming."

Ronaldo Has Only Guaranteed Spot In Real Madrids XI - RealGM Wiretap

Real Madrid has a deep roster of talented players with Rafa Benitez saying only Cristiano Ronaldo's place is always secure.

"Only one player is guaranteed his place here and that's Cristiano Ronaldo Steve Nash Mavericks Jersey ," said Benitez. "All the others are good. We have talented youngsters who still have to work on improving their game."

Benitez doesn't currently have plans to rotate Ronaldo to make sure he gets sufficient rest.

锘? TAKING A BEATING There is no question that a parking lot takes a beating day-in and day-out. And, in many climates, just the temperature swings alone are enough to cause accelerated deterioration. Constant freeze thaw cycles, of course, cause constant expansion and contraction (cracks) - increasing the risk of water infiltration. Then the water freezes, expands the cracks further, and compounds the problem even more. Also adding stress to the parking lot is the brutal effect of daily traffic; not to mention, it receives its share of small (and large) fuel and chemical spills and leaks from automobiles Nerlens Noel Mavericks Jersey , equipment, etc. Even our warm and friendly sun adds to the negative effects by constantly spreading its ultraviolet rays helping to cause further deterioration by increasing the rate of oxidation, causing the asphalt to become dry and brittle. The result? Obviously, a greater risk of cracking and more water infiltration. All of those factors combined make for an uphill battle to properly maintain parking lots. You definitely have to stay in front of the eight ball. KEEP IT ON THE SURFACE One way to do that is to keep those deteriorating effects on the actual parking lot surface. After all, the surface was designed to take the beating and, acting as a shield, not allow the deteriorating effects to negatively impact the base material. In order to ensure the surface, or "shield Jose Juan Barea Mavericks Jersey ," continues to meet the demands for many years to come, sealcoating is a key component to any parking lot maintenance program. Sealcoating does just what the name implies of course, sealing the top coat of asphalt pavement further improving its "shielding ability." Although each project will vary depending on area, condition, location, etc., the general process is described in more detail below. The Pre-application Process ASSESS THE ASPHALT QUALITY Assessing the quality of your asphalt is important as it helps determine what preparation steps need to be completed before applying the sealcoating. Three key factors are important in that determination and they are: I) Well Drained and Stable II) Frequency and Size of Cracks III) Oil Free Surface The level of those three factors can dramatically increase or decrease the quality of the sealcoating application and performance. NEW ASPHALT For new asphalt sealcoating, it is usually just a matter of the surface having had adequate time to cure and surface oils to dissolve. The Asphalt Sealcoat Manufacturers Association (ASMA) recommends a 6 - 12 month cure time. An easy way to tell if the oils are gone is to broadcast a gallon of water on the surface and watch it move. The water moving in a uniform sheet is a good indication the oils are gone. On the other hand Jose Barea Mavericks Jersey , if you see 'rings' or 'breaks' in the sheeting action, its probably an indication its not properly cured, or that there is an isolated trouble spot that will need a spot primer. OLD ASPHALT During the inspection, note any problem areas including those areas that may need patching andor crack sealing. It is likely too, depending on the age and actual surface condition, the asphalt may need to be primed prior to the application of the protective surface treatment. Step 1: Cleaning the Surface Whether the surface can go straight to sealcoating, or if priming is required, the surface must be cleaned thoroughly in order to remove all loose aggregate Jason Kidd Mavericks Jersey , powder, dirt, gravel, silt, etc. In most cases, use blowers, pressure washers, steel bristle brooms Harrison Barnes Mavericks Jersey , or a combination in order to get the best cleaning results. Step 2: Prepping the Surface After the surface is well cleaned then repairs, crack sealing, oil spot priming, and any other special treatments will be performed. Use only those products compatible with the sealcoat product to be used. Step 3: Preparing the Material Different sealcoat mix designs may provide different benefits so determine what product is right for your application.Follow the specific manufacturer's recommendations for material preparation including additives, mixing, etc. Step 4: Applying the Material As with other material handling, the sealcoat material will be applied by manufacturer's specifications. In most cases, sealcoat products can be applied either by hand Dirk Nowitzki Mavericks Jersey , with squeegees and brushes, or by machine. Determine the most beneficial method depending on coverage area, obstacles, or any other considerations impacting maneuverability. Because of the amount of traffic parking lots receive, always apply two coats for added protection and durabili.
