Injured Clippers Kawhi Leonard, Patrick Beverley making progress

The whole no-news-is-good-news thing? Maybe not if you’re the Clippers. In their case, any tidings tend to be good tidings. And so Coach Tyronn Lue was happy to report Wednesday that Kawhi Leonard (sore foot) and – surprise! – Patrick Beverley (fractured hand) were able to participate in the Clippers’ shootaround ahead of their game against the Suns. Of course, neither player is ready to return to game action, and Lue isn’t able to offer a timetable for when they’re expected back. But the coach ...

Dodgers’ Chris Taylor is slugging his way into uncharted territory

LOS ANGELES ― Chris Taylor’s .939 on-base plus slugging percentage isn’t just among the best on the Dodgers. It’s among the best in the National League. The 30-year-old ranks eighth in the league in OPS, a statistic fancied by the Dodgers’ front office as a proxy for run production. It helps that he’s hitting the ball harder and farther than at any point in his eight major league seasons. Taylor’s eighth-inning triple against the Reds on Wednesday gave him two this season, to go with four home r...

Which is better for developing immunity: COVID-19 vaccine or natural infection?

Debate has raged over which provides better protection against COVID-19 — natural infection or vaccine injection? “Sorry Dr Fauci and other fearmongers, new study shows vaccines and naturally acquired immunity DO effectively neutralize COVID variants. Good news for everyone but bureaucrats and petty tyrants!” tweeted a combative Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul in March. A large-scale study by UC Irvine researchers may definitively settle this debate. They found that, yes, natural infection provides prot...
