Dodgers’ pitching plan puts them in a hole, Rays take Game 2 to even series

ARLINGTON, Texas — A lot of things sound good in planning meetings. There was probably a lot of talk of synergy and collaboration as the Dodgers exhausted bandwidth and searched for a scalable paradigm that would allow them to Johnny Wholestaff their way through Game 2. There would be a cat-loving iteration of Johnny (Tony Gonsolin), a red-headed iteration of Johnny (Dustin May), a left-handed iteration of Johnny (Victor Gonzalez), a sassy iteration of Johnny (Joe Kelly) and so on.

5 things to know about LA’s Steel Panther before the comedic metal band’s Halloween show

By Gary Graff The Oakland Press Steel Panther is not the kind of band to sit on its haunches, or in quarantine, for too long. This is, after all, the band that plays “Balls Out” and offers “All You Can Eat” — at least according to its album titles. The comedic metal quartet from Los Angeles has already done two extensively produced streaming concerts, with a third on the way for Halloween from the Viper Room on the Sunset Strip. And Steel Panther has ventured into the world to play in the flesh ...

Chargers’ Mike Williams makes life easier for Justin Herbert with acrobatic catches

COSTA MESA — Most coaches with rookie quarterbacks tend to simplify the playbook with a variety of screen throws, checkdowns and quick slants. Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams isn’t known for making those types of catches, but that didn’t stop him from telling Justin Herbert to trust him. What Williams does best is what most coaches tell rookie quarterbacks like Herbert to avoid. “Going up, making those crazy catches,” Williams said Wednesday to describe his playing style. Those crazy catche...

Southern California Catholics mostly welcome Pope Francis’s endorsement of same-sex civil unions

Pope Francis endorsed same-sex civil unions for the first time as pontiff when he was being interviewed for the feature-length documentary “Francesco,” which premiered Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Rome Film Festival. While a number of Southern California Catholics were not surprised by the pope’s compassionate stance toward the LGBTQ community, many also recognized that his comments, significant as they are, would not change the church’s doctrine, which views the sacrament of marriage as the union...

Dodgers’ offensive approach has held up better this postseason

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Dodgers knew they were getting a five-tool player when they acquired Mookie Betts. They probably didn’t realize how valuable his sixth tool would be – his voice. Betts’ influence on the Dodgers’ hitters has not so much changed them in October as it has reminded them who they need to be in the postseason. “I think top to bottom we’re doing the little things,” Dodgers utilityman Chris Taylor said. “We’re taking what they give us. It’s not all for the long ball. Obviously, wi...

Portland is rebuilding a neighborhood destroyed by highways and racist land-use policies

There’s been a spike in tagged sharks off Southern California this year, but where are they hanging out?

Just when marine scientists think they’ve figured out what great white shark patterns might be off the Southern California coast, the sea creatures change course. “It’s one of those unusual years, but we don’t know why,” said Chris Lowe, director of the Shark Lab in Long Beach. “That’s the part that is kind of alluring and frustrating at the same time.” The Shark Lab has been doing aerial surveys from San Diego to Santa Barbara using helicopters and drones to do a census of sharks and attempt ...

Rams’ Robert Woods isn’t thrown off by changes in offense

So far this season, the Rams have been running more and passing less, relying more on their bargain backfield than their $100 million wide-receiver corps. For any other receiver, that could mean frustration is in the air instead of footballs. But not Robert Woods, who takes pride in being able to do more than catch the ball. “Whatever it takes to win,” Woods said Wednesday as the Rams (4-2) began to get ready to host the Chicago Bears (5-1) on Monday night at SoFi Stadium. “I obviously want the ...

Special districts push for slice of California’s coronavirus relief pie

The prickly issue of financial help for state and local governments — hammered by COVID-related dips in tax revenue — has been like rocks in the dance shoes of Democrats and Republicans as they execute the latest coronavirus-relief minuet. While Democrats want $436 billion for state and local governments, Republicans refuse to “bail out” what they call “poorly run” and “mismanaged governments,” many of which happen to be in blue states. In California, sales tax collections are down nearly 5% thi...

How would Prop. 15 impact California’s housing crisis?

By Matt Levin | Calmatters When Californians approved Proposition 13 in 1978, critics of the landmark ballot measure say voters did not foresee many of the unintended consequences of capping property taxes on both residential and commercial land: lower school funding, cash-strapped cities, major corporate tax benefits. Forty-two years later, Californians are about to vote on Proposition 15, which proponents say will solve many of those problems by raising taxes on commercial properties. But ...
