A very early look at a Miami Dolphins 2021 2-round mock draft

The Miami Dolphins have four picks within the top-50 thanks to the Houston Texans, but who should they select? After a first round mock draft this past week, I decided to extend it to the second round as the Miami Dolphins own four picks in

Los Angeles could see more than 300 homicides this year, police chief says

Dozens more people have been killed and more have been shot in Los Angeles this year than in the same time the year before, the city’s police chief said Tuesday. Already in 2020, there have been 266 killings, according to Los Angeles Police Department numbers as of Friday. That’s 53 more victims killed than over the same period of 2019. The number is also already more than the total number of killings in 2019 and 2018. And the city is closing in on 1,000 total shooting victims — as of Friday, 97...

Voters stand in line for the first day of early voting at the Metropolitan Multi-Services Center in Houston, Texas on October 13, 2020.

That figure contributes to an immense wave of voter enthusiasm sweeping across the country. Trump won Texas by 9 percentage points in 2016 but is no...

Five things the Twins could learn from the AL champion Tampa Bay Rays

The 2020 postseason ended for the Twins in familiarly frustrating fashion — with a sweep (this time at the hands of the Astros) that was as meek as it was disappointing. But the 2020 postseason continues for two teams Tuesday with the start of the World Series. And one of those teams in particular, Tampa Bay, should give Twins fans at least a little glimmer of hope for the future. Simply put: If the Rays can make it this far, a lot of teams can. That's obviously not to say it's easy. It is to sa...

Kentucky AG Cameron: I Faced ‘Beyond the Pale’ Racial Attacks After Breonna Taylor Case

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron had always found the Left to be intolerant of black conservatives, but the spate of character assassination attempts he has faced recently have gone “beyond the pale.”In a recent interview with National Review, Cameron, the first African-American to ever be independently elected to statewide office in the Bluegrass State, detailed the experience of  being on the receiving end of a firestorm of criticism over his investigation into the police shooting of 2...

Whicker: Mookie Betts tunes up the Dodgers’ machine like Joe Morgan once did for Reds

Mookie Betts rubbed his glove into Atlanta’s face three times. Since there was always a baseball inside, it hurt. He levitated twice in right field and made home runs disappear, and he charged and leaned and somehow didn’t fall while he snagged a sinking liner, and thus conned Marcell Ozuna into leaving third base early. No one can tell how many runs the Braves might have scored if Betts hadn’t turned right field into his own National League Championship Series control center. But Betts certainl...

Rams have a bear of a schedule the rest of the way

For the Rams, now comes the harder part. When their schedule came out, the opening stretch of games against eastern opponents looked like a real slog. But the unexpected top-to-bottom weakness of the NFC East left them facing only one team with a winning record in Weeks 1 to 5. The current records of past and upcoming foes, after the NFL’s 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. games Sunday, paint a different picture: • Rams’ first six opponents: 11 wins, 21 losses, 1 tie (.348). • Rams’ next 10 opponents: 32 wins,...

Rams’ sack game springs a leak in loss to 49ers, Jimmy Garoppolo

This wasn’t how Aaron Donald and the Rams defense planned to celebrate the league-leading pass rusher’s 100th NFL game. Donald, whose 79.5 sacks in his first 99 games are the most by an interior lineman since the league began counting quarterback takedowns in 1982, figured to have a big night against Jimmy Garoppolo and what had been poor San Francisco 49ers pass protection. Instead, all Rams combined Sunday for zero sacks of Garoppolo, who was playing on a heavily taped right ankle. Donald and ...

Eight months in, California is containing COVID-19 as other states spike. Here’s why.

Eight months into the coronavirus pandemic, California has become a rare case: a state that has contained the transmission of COVID-19 and isn’t experiencing another surge — yet, at least. Nationwide, daily infections are up one-quarter in the last two weeks, and the country just reported its most in a single day since July. Lightly populated North Dakota is seeing 85 new cases a day per 100,000 residents over the last two weeks. California? Ten new cases per 100,000, up just 2 percent in two we...
