Jamey Wright embarks on second career as Dodgers’ minor league pitching coach

The end of the road for Jamey Wright did not come with a cross-country retirement tour, or a ceremony, or even a televised press conference. It came when Yolmer Sanchez grounded out to second base to end a spring training game between the Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. Wright walked off the mound at Camelback Ranch, the box score crediting him with a save in a 5-4 win on March 26, 2016. That was it. His big league career was over. When he met with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Wright already kne...

‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ Honest Trailer: Where the Morals Are as Gray as the Visuals

Marvel Studios continues the recent efforts to make you care about second tier members of The Avengers by giving them their own show on Disney+. Much like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier gives us two superheroes for the price of one. But thankfully, the series makes them more than bargain bin superheroes, even if the Honest Trailer doesn’t mince words about their forced banter, staring contests, and incessant talk about Captain America’s shield. The Falcon and The Winter Soldi...

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. Gray (4-2) allowed two runs and four hits. The right-hander also struck out eight and walked two while improving to 4-0 in five home starts. Daniel Bard worked a shaky ninth for his third save in five opportunities. The Giants scored an unearned run on catcher Dom Nuñez’s throwing error, but Darin Ruf bounced to shortstop with...

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...

'Gray divorce' - getting divorced later in life - is on the rise. Here's how an attorney says you should handle separation when you're older.

"Gray divorce," also known as "silver splitter" or "diamond divorce," refers to the increasing trend of late-in-life divorces. Kupicoo/Getty Images Nicole Sodoma is the founder of a family and separation law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina. She says 'gray divorce' may be caused by factors like longer life expectancy and financial independence. Older couples should consider division of retirement benefits and marital estates in the separation process. See more stories on Insider...

Angels Q&A: Potential trade targets for the rotation?

The Angels are 12-11 as they enjoy what will be their only off day in a 27-day span on Thursday, so it provides a good time to stop and answer some questions. As usual, most of your questions focused on the pitching – or lack thereof – and what the Angels can do about it, with a good dose of Shohei Ohtani questions mixed in. Q: Same question every season, what are the possible starting pitching trade options? — @BrokenHalo1979 A: It is still April, so it’s not really time to be asking this quest...

‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ Black and White Edition is Officially Coming to HBO Max

After four long years, Zack Snyder Justice League has finally made its way to the screen. This is it: all four hours of Snyder’s pure, unadulterated vision in a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Cate Blanchett to Play Donald Trump’s Sister in James Gray’s ‘Armageddon Time’

“Cate Blanchett is going to play Donald Trump’s sister, which is the weirdest sentence I have ever said,” Ad Astra director James Gray recently said of his new movie Armageddon Time. To be fair, James Gray, it’s one of the weirdest sentences we’ve read. Early last year, it was announced that Blanchett was joining Gray’s coming-of-age drama Armageddon Time, which draws inspiration from the filmmaker’s own childhood in Queens. Donald Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, seems like an unlikely fi...

Homeless and humbled by grief, he found a home to last via pilot housing program

Chris Gray and his wife, Deborah, and the dog they’d adopted from a homeless friend, had criss-crossed Los Angeles County many times before they pulled up to the apartment building, praying that a program called LeaseUp had secured them a home to last. Gray lost his job at a carbon factory in 2015, and his apartment in Long Beach a year later. Since then, they’ve slept in their car, tried unsuccessfully to make a life in Lancaster and stayed in motels here and there, though that drained their me...

Can cats teach us the meaning of life?

In "Feline Philosophy," philosopher John Gray argues that self-awareness isn't the epitome of evolution—and it leads to suffering.Gray investigates Pascal, Spinoza, and Lao Tzu to understand why humans are so uncomfortable with themselves.

It won’t be easy moving Sacramento to the middle

Last week, eight California legislators — four Democrats, three Republicans and one independent — created the Problem Solvers Caucus. They declared themselves “party agnostic,” focusing instead on pragmatic compromise to solve California’s many problems. By contrast, under the present system, they announced, “Republicans are pressured by their caucus to disavow any solutions offered by Democrats, and Democrats are expected to march in lockstep behind their leaders.” Punishment for dissenting fro...

Short Film: State Zero

This is a short sci-fi/horror from director Andree Wallin, released in 2015 and coming in at just under 17 minutes. The short takes many of its cues from I am Legend (the film not the novel) and it is one where the vampirism is, by design, not obvious. So why go down that line – because the IMDb credits list a character as “Vamp”. However the opening starts with some science chicanery as a man (Aaron Vodovoz) comes around, strapped to a chair, air-tubes in his nose. A woman (Kayla Meikle) shows...
