Markieff and Marcus Morris carry brotherly love into the bubble, hope for Lakers-Clippers series

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> Lakers and Clippers eating together? In the bubble, it happens almost every morning. Makieff and Marcus Morris Sr. wouldn’t do it any other way. They stroll down to Three Bridges Bar and Grill and order bacon and eggs, or sometimes pancakes, every morning their schedules allow. They talk about their business ventures, their foundation — things away from the game. For the Morrises, they try to enjoy every minute they can of something they have in the NBA bubble that most...

Red King, a 6-year-old son of English Channel, earned an all-expenses paid berth into the turf division of November’s Breeders’ Cup by holding off a late charge by 3-5 favorite United in the $200,000 Grade II Del Mar Handicap on Saturday.

Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start

LOS ANGELES — When Max Muncy signed a three-year, $26 million contract extension in February, it was a lucrative affirmation of his rise from being released by the Oakland A’s at the end of spring training 2017 to his status as a crucial piece of the Dodgers’ lineup. That player hasn’t shown up yet this season. Muncy went into Saturday’s game hitting just .172 with a .291 on-base percentage and .664 OPS. Six of his 17 hits had been home runs but it was still a far cry from the .927 OPS he put to...

California needs a party that stands for common sense: Tom Campbell

The Common Sense Party, a new political party being formed in California, stands for fiscal responsibility, social inclusivity and pragmatic decision-making. The party has no checklist of positions to which adherence is demanded.  Instead, a candidate must show that she or he makes decisions on the facts, not prejudice. People of good faith who disagree on any point can receive support of the Common Sense Party. Best answers are often in the middle, and better answers are always to be found when...

California is ready for real justice and policing reform

The voices, cries and protests calling for true police reform have resonated with California voters. Their messages of police abuse and reform are overwhelmingly supported according to a poll we recently conducted among California voters.

Trout Drives In 3 Runs, Makes Diving Catch As Angels Top A’s

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics are so accustomed to late-game comebacks they were surprised not to pull one off this time against the last-place Angels. And the A’s infield defense has been so steady it was strange to see them commit three errors. Mike Trout drove in three early runs, then made a key catch late as Los Angeles beat the AL-best A’s 4-3 on Saturday to snap Oakland’s nine-game home winning streak. The three-time MVP made a diving grab on Matt Olson’s sinking liner to c...

Blogging About Anime, August 2020

It’s been a while since I wrote about my seasonal watches. Having MLB back on TV seems to provide me a kind of anchor, rhythm-wise. It is arguable that pro team sports is a good or bad idea in the US, in mid-2020, when/where the pandemic is still raging strong. But that seems like just par for the course in 2020, a year that the lowest of bars in politics, health, and communication are all up for argument. The lowest of bars in anime is also up for arguments. I have some baseline opinions abo...

Mike Trout, with bat and glove, helps Angels end losing streak

The Angels got a victory – finally – thanks to Mike Trout doing what he normally does, and what he doesn’t normally do. Trout drove in three of the runs and made a diving catch in the eighth inning to help preserve the Angels’ 4-3 victory over the A’s in Oakland on Saturday. Trout, who rarely dives in the outfield, made a catch against No. 3 hitter Matt Olson leading off the eighth. It helped save Ty Buttrey, who worked the final two innings to preserve the victory and snap the Angels’ four-game...
