Banged-up Angels place Anthony Rendon on injured list again

ANAHEIM — The ranks of the Angels’ walking wounded grew again. Their bench was so short-handed on Wednesday night, Albert Pujols was the only healthy position player not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Jerry Neuheisel adds a QB’s perspective to UCLA’s receiving room

Jerry Neuheisel’s football career has followed a path similar to his father Rick’s, with both starting their college careers playing quarterback for UCLA. Jerry is now taking the next step in his career at UCLA after Coach Chip Kelly promoted him to wide receivers coach in January. “Jerry has worked here since he was a graduate assistant but he was more than a grad assistant for us,” Kelly said. “He was always like a full-time coach for us because of his knowledge and work ethic.” It is the same...

As yellow tier arrives, some LA County coronavirus rules remain tougher than state’s

Striding into the least-restrictive yellow tier of the state’s economic-reopening blueprint, Los Angeles County will deploy its loosest business restrictions since the pandemic began on Thursday, May 6. But some rules in the county’s public health ordered will remain tougher than the state’s, including a 75% capacity cap at grocery and retail stores. Pasadena and Long Beach were a step ahead of the county, enacting eased guidelines on Wednesday, including the reopening of indoor bars. The county...

Cypress College failed to be ‘anti-racist’ by not defending professor in viral video, faculty union says

The faculty union at Cypress College has taken the administration to task for not defending the professor who repeatedly interrupted a student in an online speech class as he tried to argue that many police officers could be seen as heroes. “The failure to issue a clear and strong statement of support for faculty under the existing circumstances is a failure to be anti-racist,” said signed by Christie Diep, president of United Faculty of the North Orange County Community College District, and ...

Hoornstra: For minor league baseball players, the psychological effect of a lost season was real

When the daily activities at the alternate site camp ended, Josiah Gray went back to the team hotel and took a nap. He would wake up in time to watch the Dodgers’ game at night. Then the 23-year-old pitcher would go back to sleep, rise early the next morning, and head back to USC – rinse, wash, repeat, until the 60-game regular season ended and the playoff “bubble” opened to prospects such as himself. At least that’s how Gray remembers it. There wasn’t much else a minor league player could do la...

‘The building where I taught my kids to read’: Pasadena absorbs closure of beloved Central Library

Dr. Lucy Jones fondly remembers the days when she would take her children to the Pasadena Central Library. “That’s the building where I taught my kids to read,” she said. “… It was an experience.” It was a moment of added poignancy for the renowned seismology expert, who like many in a city with a tradition of reverence to its architectural past, was absorbing the sudden closure of the nearly 100-year-old, multi-floored, Spanish Colonial Revival-styled gem. Just like that, the first building sta...

Gray Stays Perfect At Home, Rockies Beat Giants, 6-5

DENVER (AP) — Jon Gray tossed six strong innings and helped himself with an RBI single, and the Colorado Rockies held off the San Francisco Giants for a 6-5 win Wednesday.

Whicker: Worst Ducks team in history waits for elevator to restart

The National Hockey League plays in an elevator. Thanks to an unforgiving salary cap, you’re either ascending or descending. Washington has made the playoffs six consecutive years. No one else’s streak is longer than four. Pittsburgh would have done it 14 consecutive years but lost the “qualifying round” in the 2020 bubble. For a long time the Ducks were able to withstand the downforces. Beginning in 2006, they qualified 11 times in 13 seasons. In 2017, they lost the Western Conference Finals to...

Remember the good old days, when we all assumed that the road to the NBA Finals was destined to run through Staples Center? Now, 14 months later, we might be looking at a first-round collision between the Lakers and Clippers. And that’s the best-case scenario. It would be a fair fight in all likelihood. The teams play again Thursday night with the Clippers as the home team and both in similar stages of adjustment, trying to capture (or recapture) chemistry on the fly with less than two weeks lef...

Embattled Cheney says the GOP is at a ‘turning point’

By Jamie Gangel and Michael Warren | CNN In a new op-ed for The Washington Post, Rep. Liz Cheney says the Republican Party is at a “turning point” and must decide whether to accept or reject Donald Trump’s lies about the 2020 election, which she says provoked the violence on January 6 and could provoke violence again. “Trump is seeking to unravel critical elements of our constitutional structure that make democracy work — confidence in the result of elections and the rule of law.
