He has been troubled with injuries over the last two seasons but we are satisfied they are all cleared up now. Outside Manchester United we consider we have the best backroom staff in the game. So I am confident we can give him all the support he needs.
I don't think there have been many seasons when the same city had the dominant team in both leagues like Detroit has this year. It'll definitely be an interesting run and a wild party in Detroit if they can pull it off.
[When at Portsmouth two seasons ago, on a similar loan deal to the one which brought him to Charlton from Chelsea this summer, he was thrilled to discover Conan Doyle's role in helping found the club.] He even played for them, ... I was interested in him from when I was young so it was very exciting. Charles Dickens was also born there.
We are happy to have Harper back in 2006. Travis has been very versatile and durable in his seasons with the Rays. Travis pitched very well down the stretch and we expect him to be a positive contributor.
Successive seasons of drought in the worst-affected areas have now eroded many households' assets to the point of destitution. A range of appropriate emergency interventions need to be put in place as quickly as possible before the already alarming conditions become much worse.
It's certainly reasonable to expect above-normal hurricane seasons for the next decade or perhaps even longer. It's not a matter of if more hurricanes are going to hit the coast, it's simply a matter of when.
Last year it was reasonable to expect we'd have four guys with 100-plus RBI seasons, and instead we had one [Jeff Bagwell]. No one had anywhere near a career year. More players than not had below-average seasons. We expect the offense to do significantly better.
We are delighted to have increased our ownership stake in the Four Seasons Hotel in Damascus. This transaction is firmly in line with our strategy to acquire and consolidate the minority stakes in hotels that we already own.
He has been playing at an elite level for several seasons and is ready to prove himself in the NHL. We look forward to having him in a Capitals' uniform for many years. He has an infectious style of play and displays an exciting combination speed, finesse and power.
I've loved my four seasons with the Islanders. This is where I really developed as a player. It was a priority for me to stay an Islander. I'm very appreciative that management was as enthusiastic about making a commitment to me.
I fought my mechanics a lot the last two seasons and that's primarily what held me back last year when I'd have some good months and some not-so-good months. Now I'm not thinking about mechanics. I'm thinking about the right things and doing the right things.
Because we accomplished so much the last couple of seasons, we no longer have to explain who we are to everyone. However, I do know that if we have a bad season or two, all the good stuff we have started here will become more difficult to keep going.
We are extremely pleased to extend Kyle's contract for three additional seasons, ... Kyle is a big, strong, punishing defenseman who is trending up in his career and he will continue to be one of our anchors on the back end.
Certainly he's well deserving of what he's going to make. He was a key component for our seasons the last two years. There was going to come a day when he would get paid like the best of the game. And that day has come. He's well deserving.
