The highly-awaited performance marks the return globally-renowned British band’s return to the UK’s most famous festival, a performance which was announced in October with a photo of the band’s bear logo emblazoned on the grass on the empty festival grounds:Radiohead have become somewhat synonymous with Glastonbury over the years. They have headlined the event twice before (in 1997 and 2003), with both sets considered to be all-time classic Glastonbury performances. They also performed a secret set at the festival’s Park Stage in 2011 when road testing the material from their album The King Of Limbs. Thom Yorke has even been known to pop up at the festival’s many smaller venues and cafes to perform DJ sets as well.

Dustin May ready for his audition as Dodgers sort through their options

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire LOS ANGELES — As a starting pitcher in the minor leagues, Dustin May has had a lot of downtime – between starts, on road trips – and he has filled a large chunk of it by binge-watching the TV series “Dexter.”Five times.So May already knows how things ended for the lead character, a blood-splatter analyst for the Miami Police Department (who also dabbled in serial killing). How things end for May this season is very much still a mystery.The Dodgers’ much-coveted top pitching prospect will make his major-league debut Friday night, starting against the San Diego Padres, and will “probably” make more starts for the Dodgers after that, according to Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman. May and/or Gonsolin could “possibly” be part of a postseason bullpen, Friedman said. In order for the Dodgers to evaluate their suitability for a relief role “of course” they will pitch out of the bullpen down the stretch.Gonsolin got one of those opportunities on Tuesday, pitching the final four innings of the Dodgers’ win at Coors Field.Friedman has done this before with top pitching prospects. In 2008, David Price made his major-league debut in September for the Tampa Bay Rays and then went to the bullpen during their run to the World Series. Over 5-2/3 innings in the ALCS and World Series, Price allowed just one earned run on two hits while striking out eight.In 2017, the Dodgers tried it with Walker Buehler. Buehler did not pitch well in a relief role (a 7.71 ERA in eight September appearances) and was not on the postseason roster.“Our thing is there’s no downside,” Friedman said. “I think Walker’s experience in 2017 helped him in 2018. So there’s either near-term value and long-term value or just long-term value. Either way, we see it as a win.”May and Gonsolin will be auditioning for a postseason bullpen that could also include Julio Urias or Rich Hill.No decision has been made yet on Urias’ role going forward, Roberts said. He started Tuesday in Colorado and will return to a relief role Sunday. But Roberts acknowledged conversations are ongoing about where Urias will be used over the next two months and in the postseason.Hill’s return from a flexor tendon injury is another unknown. He has started a throwing program but is not expected to pitch again until some time in September, potentially not giving him enough time to build up for a starter’s role in the postseason.“We expect Rich back. To what extent, that remains to be seen,” Roberts said. “If we can build him up as a starter that’s great. We can look at him as a starter going forward. If time runs out and he’s healthy but it’s on a shorter stint, then obviously we’ve got to look at another role.Related Articles Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “That’s all stuff that we can’t make that decision right now. Most importantly, we want Rich healthy and as we get into the middle of September we’ll have more clarity about what role we can use him in.”If Hill is not ready to start in the postseason, the Dodgers could then have a potential opening for a fourth starter in a playoff series – an opening that could be filled by Urias, May or Gonsolin.After two years of trade rumors and speculation, the hard-throwing May, who is 6-5 with a 3.37 ERA combined at Double-A and Triple-A this season, is just happy to be in the mix. The fact that the Dodgers refused to include him in last year’s trade for Manny Machado or a deal this year for a reliever (like Pittsburgh’s Felipe Vazquez) was a confidence boost, May said.“Yeah, I feel like it was definitely a more pushed-on thing last year, the Manny Machado stuff,” said May, who was selected by the Dodgers in the third round of the 2016 draft. “Last year, it was kind of overwhelming to be honest. I had to pitch the day after. I ended up just turning my phone off. If it happens, it happens and I’ll make a phone call back to somebody.“It didn’t happen. I was very blessed.”center_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How many starts the 21-year-old, 6-foot-6 right-hander will make for the Dodgers, when or if he will return to Triple-A this season and what role he might have in the Dodgers’ postseason plans – those questions, Friedman said, he can’t even answer yet.“When Strip left the game last week, we started talking about him taking Strip’s spot,” Friedman said, referring to the injury that landed Ross Stripling on the Injured List. “The fact that it lined up to be in Colorado we didn’t think would be the kindest way to introduce a guy to the big leagues … although if anyone could handle it, he could. Beyond the talent on the mound, which is obvious, the makeup, the way the mind works, the way he competes, the singular focus on being great at this is something that stood out since the day he stepped into our system.“So we’re not thinking beyond tomorrow right now and just giving him an opportunity – meaning that we don’t have everything mapped out. We don’t need to right now.”Along with Stripling’s injury, the fact that the trade deadline passed Wednesday with the Dodgers only adding lefty Adam Kolarek to the bullpen also opened a window of opportunity for May and fellow pitching prospect Tony Gonsolin.“I think the important part is – and it’s why we focused on the very top end of the market and weren’t as focused on the middle part of the market – that we had some very talented arms both in the big leagues and in Triple-A that we felt were ready to get a shot and an opportunity,” Friedman said. “So our approach over these next two months is to put our guys in the best positions to succeed and evaluate and get at what we think is the best pitching staff at that point we can put together.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
