Hunter Renfroe’s power surge is a welcome sight for the San Diego Padres.Renfroe’s grand slam keyed a six-run rally that stunned the Milwaukee Brewers and gave the Padres an 8-4 victory on Thursday.Renfroe hit a home run for the fourth straight game Francisco Lindor Jersey , a blast into the left-field bleachers off Brewers reliever Joakim Soria. San Diego entered the ninth inning trailing 4-2, but rallied against Brewers closer Corey Knebel and Soria.The Padres finished 4-3 on their Midwest road trip as they split four games with the Chicago Cubs and won two of three against the Brewers.“Part of it is guys clicking at the right time. Part of it is guys just saying, ‘Enough was enough. It’s time to go play winning baseball,'” Padres manager Andy Green said.Knebel walked the bases loaded to open the ninth and gave up an infield single to Travis Jankowski, trimming Milwaukee’s lead to 4-3. Soria induced a flyout from Eric Hosmer and had a 1-2 count on Renfroe before the Padres left fielder turned on an inside pitch.Renfroe did not chase an 0-2 pitch that just missed the strike zone.“It was a great pitch; it was off the plate,” Renfroe said. “He dropped down a little bit. I was able to lay off it and I was able to get a pitch I could handle on the next pitch and drive it out of the ballpark.”Franmil Reyes capped the six-run outburst with a solo homer to right field off Jacob Barnes.Knebel (2-3) did not retire any of the four hitters he faced in the ninth.“Couldn’t throw a strike,” Knebel said. “That was it. Nothing else going on. I just couldn’t find the zone.”Brewers manager Craig Counsell said he may use other options to close games in the future.“Whether it’s the seventh, eighth, ninth or sixth, we need those outs,” Counsell said. “I think the next time out, we’ll get him an easier spot for sure but at some point, we’re going to try to get him back to working big spots in the game.“I think we function best when Corey handles the ninth Corey Kluber Jersey , but if we have to do things a little differently to get him back on track, then that’s how we’ll approach it.”Milwaukee finished a 3-3 homestand and dropped two games behind the first-place Cubs in the National League Central Division race.Padres reliever Kirby Yates (4-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory and Craig Stammen closed it out with a perfect ninth.Brewers starter Junior Guerra allowed two runs and eight hits in six innings and was helped by three double plays. The Padres hit into four double plays overall.Brewers second baseman Jonathan Schoop, acquired from Baltimore before the trade deadline, was 3 for 26 with his new team before hitting a two-run double down the left-field line in Milwaukee’s three-run fourth inning. The hit broke a 1-1 tie.Schoop scored the third run of the rally when he raced home from second base on Lorenzo Cain’s grounder that was misplayed by Padres shortstop Freddy Galvis.The Padres cut the deficit to 4-2 on Galvis’ solo homer in the sixth.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: Soria suffered a groin injury in the ninth and was removed while pitching to Reyes.EASY FOR YOU TO SAY: Newly acquired Mike Moustakas has become a quick hit with Brewers fans, judging from the “Moooose” calls going around Miller Park in the past week.He hit a flyout to center as a pinch hitter on Thursday. He has a .268 batting average in his first 12 games with Milwaukee, while hitting two home runs and driving in six runs.“It’s just personality,” Counsell said. “He’s an open book. He’s going to wear everything out in the open.“He’s going to get his uniform dirty, dive and make plays like that. You can see from the stadium that the chants have started already. It’s fun to say ‘Moose’. It just is. It’s a fun word to say. It’s a good nickname as well and it’s easy to get attached to guys like that.”UP NEXTBrewers: RHP Freddy Peralta (5-2, 3.54 ERA) will make his 11th start and second against the Braves as Milwaukee opens an eight-game road trip. He is coming off an 8-4 victory over Colorado on Saturday.Braves: RHP Kevin Gausman (5-9, 4.47 ERA) was acquired in a trade deadline deal with Baltimore and lost his Braves debut on Aug. 4, a 3-0 defeat to the New York Mets. He allowed three runs and six hits in five innings. The upcoming Major League Baseball free-agency season will be littered with big names, as Bryce Harper and Manny Machado headline the list of available players.While some teams will be able to afford the massive contracts of the top free agents, others will dig deeper to bring in underrated assets to fill voids on their respective rosters.Some of the underrated players turned in career seasons for playoff teams to make themselves more valuable on the free-agent market.While some free agents will opt to return to their current clubs Ricky Vaughn Jersey , there will be a handful of underrated stars on the open market who could be steals for struggling franchises.Predictions for Underrated AssetsDJ LeMahieuDJ LeMahieu has spent the majority of his career in a Colorado Rockies uniform, but he might be moving on from the franchise in the offseason.LeMahieu is one of the few free agents who could leave the Rockies in the winter, and no contract talks have been held between the infielder and the organization, per Kyle Newmanof theDenver Post.Despite playing 128 games in the regular season, LeMahieu recorded his career high in home runs (15), tied his best career mark in doubles (32) and was four short of his top RBImark (66).Justin Edmonds/Getty ImagesThe Rockies could be fine with moving on from the 29-year-old because they have top prospect Brendan Rodgers.There's still a chance LeMahieu returns to Colorado, but that's likely dependent on what occurs with Nolan Arenado's contract situation, which might open the door for a trade and Rodgers to play third base.The Chicago Cubs, his first MLB team, are one of the logical options for LeMahieu to explore, as they'll try to upgrade the middle infield positions.The Los Angeles Dodgers might be a landing spot as well, but that's going to depend on who their NL West rivals bring back after their postseason run.Prediction:LeMahieu signs with the Cubs. Nathan EovaldiFor teams looking beneath the top tier of starting pitchers, Nathan Eovaldi could be an option to go after this winter.Eovaldi's postseason performance with the Boston Red Sox could boost his stock Michael Brantley Jersey , and his seven-inning performance in Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Monday night might be the moneymaking outing he needed.Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/Getty ImagesHowever, there are concerns surrounding the 28-year-old because he had Tommy John surgery in 2017 and went 6-7 in 22 regular-season starts for the Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays.The market for Eovaldi could develop further if he continues to shine in the postseason, and the Texas Rangers could be a potential suitor.Evan Grantof the Dallas Morning Newsnoted the Rangers have always liked the Texas native, and with starting pitching being one of their needs, he could be a realistic fit.But until Texas hires a manager to replace Jeff Bannister, the team's free-agent expectations need to be tempered.A return to Boston could be in the cards for Eovaldi, especially if he performs well during a run to the World Series, but he wouldn't be a top option in the Red Sox rotation like he might be elsewhere.Prediction:Eovaldi inks a deal with Texas.Jed LowrieJed Lowrie was one of the most important pieces to the success of the Oakland Athletics in 2018, as he hit 23 home runs and drove in 99 runs, both of which were career highs.Lowrie has spent five of the last six seasons in Oakland, and after the numbers he put up in 2018, it would be wise for both parties to get a deal done, especially with the goodwill that remains between the player and franchise.In September http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-yan-gomes-jersey , Lowrie expressed his interest to stay in Oakland during an interview with MLB Network Radio."They've expressed interest, but they haven't gone any further than that," Lowrie said. "I'm just taking it as it comes and that's really all you can do as a player so we'll see. I can definitively say I really enjoy playing with these guys and I think I'm a good fit."The interest in bringing back Lowrie is mutual, as the Athletics explored a new deal with the infielder during the summer, as Fox's Ken Rosenthal reported.Unless a breakdown in talks occurs, Lowrie should remain in Oakland, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see interest from elsewhere after he produced a career season.Prediction:Lowrie stays in Oakland.Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90.

Bitcoin economics has not changed

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE BTC BITCOIN! Each bitcoin is equal to 100 million Satoshis, making a Satoshi the smallest unit of bitcoin currently recorded on the blockchain. Think of the Satoshi as the “cents” part of bitcoin. But unlike a penny that represents 0.01 USD, Satoshi represents roughly 0.00000001 BTC — or bitcoin to its eighth decimal.

Bitcoin forecast to 2029

Time model tends to forecast lower bound to prices. Stock-to-Flow model is a better model, click chart above to see details. It incorporates the halvings and better represents the monetary policy of Bitcoin. Hype cycles are expected around each halving as investors anticipate the price appreciation. Bitcoin has a fixed supply (maximum 21 million Bitcoins), therefore it cannot be devalued by central bank money printing (so called Quantitative Easing, QE). Bitcoin is also decentralised, meaning no single authority can control it. It has existed on the Internet for 10 years from 2009. It will be the money of the machines and Internet. Also described as digital gold due to its scarcity and high value.

This is a good short article that explains, why Bitcoin? Why Bitcoin?

Physical Gold

BullionVault

Protect yourself and family from central bank currency debasement and inflation in asset prices, housing, food. There are rising levels of financial, economic and geopolitical risk in the world. In the last 100 years, all currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power. Some believe that the final move to zero will take place in the next few years.

Currency debasement through money printing is the destruction of fiat money purchasing power - $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar...

True inflation and cost of living is currently 8% higher than the government reports. Real wages are falling rapidly and most people are taking out more and more debt to make ends meet. Only the wealthy minority and banks benefit from the current system.

Protect yourself. Buy physical, allocated gold, silver, platinum online and store it in safe vaults outside your jurisdiction (Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada and Singapore) or, at home. Physical gold has limited supply. Buy before the panic!

Look what happened in Cyprus (2013), Greece (2015) and Spain (Catalonia 2017). The lesson is that the money in your bank account is not really yours. It can be taken or frozen by the government just when you need it. Maybe it is not a good idea to keep too much money in the bank, especially when the next financial crisis comes!
