Dodgers’ Mookie Betts, Kiké Hernandez win Fielding Bible Awards

Fresh off their World Series victory, the Dodgers’ Mookie Betts and Kiké Hernández have been named two of baseball’s best defensive players with Fielding Bible Awards from Baseball Info Solutions. A panel of 12 sabermetrically-inclined analysts named one winner at each defensive position, plus a mutli-position winner, in their annual award announcement on Thursday. Betts, acquired from the Boston Red Sox in a blockbuster trade last winter, was the right field award winner for the fourth time in ...

Seven Dodgers among players who become free agents following World Series

The Dodgers waited 32 years to win a World Series. But the business side of Major League Baseball waits for nothing. Seven Dodgers were among the 147 players who became free agents the morning after the conclusion of the World Series – third baseman Justin Turner, outfielder Joc Pederson, infielder/outfielder Kiké Hernandez and pitchers Blake Treinen, Alex Wood, Pedro Baez and Jake McGee. More players will become free agents in the next two months as options are exercised or declined and teams c...

Dodgers’ long journey to first World Series title in 32 years

ARLINGTON, Texas — Thirty-two years is a long time. Long enough for Dodgers fans to wonder if this day might never come. And it nearly didn’t. From Oct. 20, 1988 when Orel Hershiser threw the last pitch of the Dodgers’ five-game World Series victory over the Oakland A’s until Tuesday night, when Julio Urias did the same against the Tampa Bay Rays – a franchise that didn’t even exist in 1988 – the Dodgers and their fans went into the winter year after year feeling disappointed – or cheated. But 2...

Verily's COVID Testing Program Halted in San Francisco and Oakland

Amid fanfare in March, California officials celebrated the launch of a multimillion-dollar contract with Verily -- Google's health-focused sister company -- that they said would vastly expand COVID testing among the state's impoverished and underserved communities. But seven months later, San Francisco and Alameda counties -- two of the state's most populous -- have severed ties with the company's testing sites amid concerns about patients' data privacy and complaints that funding intended to bo...

Alexander: Roz Wyman is still the Dodgers’ No. 1 fan

If this were a normal World Series – like anything in 2020 is normal, right? – Roz Wyman would be at Dodger Stadium for Tuesday night’s Game 6 in her field level seat, on the third base side of home plate and adjacent to where the umpires enter the field. It is not in The Ravine, of course. The Dodgers have made Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, their second home during this neutral-site postseason, and that is where they will attempt to win the World Series and end 32 years of waiting. But ...

Snippy over Trump-Biden, California voters unload in hair salons, barbershops

Barbershops and beauty salons have always been about more than the shave and a haircut, or the mani-pedi. They’ve often been a refuge from the stresses and divisions of the outside world, a place to settle into a swivel chair and exhale. After all, you can’t really doom-scroll during a French manicure. But just as California salons are finally reopening after a punishing pandemic lockdown, the race between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden is coming down to its final week — and...

Prop. 23 plays politics with patients’ lives

Politics is a cynical business. You can’t help but be a bit cynical when you see how laws are really made. It is frequently based on power politics, special-interest influence and pettiness, not the sanitized, romanticized versions of democracy or how a bill becomes a law described in grade school social studies textbooks. But even for a cynic like me, who has covered California politics for about 20 years, Proposition 23 is among the worst examples I have seen of putting politics over people’s ...

Boogalooer Accused Of Firing Into MN Police Precinct During George Floyd Protests

A man connected to the so-called “boogaloo” movement has been charged federally with crossing state lines to participate in a riot, and is accused of firing rounds from an assault rifle into a Minneapolis police precinct as it burned to the ground. Charging documents released Friday detail the alleged activities of Ivan Harrison Hunter, 26, and also quote from alleged internet chats he had with Steven Carrillo. Carrillo, another alleged boogalooer, is accused of killing two law enforcement of...

California Theme Park Closures Impacting Jobs, Shops, Neighboring Communities

(AP/CBS13) — California’s amusement parks have been pining to reopen for months, hoping to bring back thousands of workers sent home in March when the coronavirus pandemic forced them to shut down. Now that state health officials announced strict new rules for reopening the parks, attractions spanning from Disneyland to Universal Studios are bracing for an even longer shutdown — and so are the surrounding communities lined with hotels, restaurants and shops that cater to visitors who no longer w...

56. Pan Am in Vietnam

Crystal Cox/Business Insider During the Vietnam War, Pan Am flew troops in and out of an active war zone on rest and recuperation trips. The flight attendants on those planes didn't get any special training or preparation to deal with some of the horrors they would witness, and when the war was over, they didn't receive recognition from the U.S. government. But their role left a lasting impact, even if their contributions were largely forgotten. Listen on: Apple Podcasts  |  Stitcher  |...

Too much legislating and regulating hurt housing in California

Way back when humans lived in unlit caves – which it looks like we may do again soon in California – housing was fairly simple. No cave-dwelling dictator commanded which people, and how many, would live in each cave, and pay what rent, or carved out special treatment for “specified subcategories.” But such coercion is liberally applied these days in state lawmakers’ attempt to repair the damage they have for decades inflicted on California’s housing market with their version of Central Planning....

Southwest Airlines is adding 9 new leisure routes and expanding to major airports in Chicago and Houston – here's the full list

Southwest Airlines is growing in new cities across the US. Associated Press Southwest Airlines just announced nine new leisure routes to cities across the country with a focus on Florida, Colorado, and California.  The almost non-existent demand for business travel has forced Southwest to adjust its flyers, serving airports it has historically avoided and operating seasonal services.

Oakland Man Convicted Of Mailing Bombs That Injured 2

SAN FRANCISCO (AP/CBS13) — An Oakland man was convicted of mailing bombs that exploded and injured two people in a botched revenge plot against a corrections officer and retired police sergeant, federal authorities said Wednesday. Ross Laverty, 59, is facing at least 20 years in prison, the U.S. attorney’s office announced. Prosecutors said DNA evidence tied Laverty to two package bombs that were mailed to homes in East Palo Alto and Alameda in the fall of 2017. “In addition to his intended vict...

Alexander: Dodgers’ bullpen (shudder) makes news again

So maybe it’s not all Kenley Jansen’s fault after all. Blake Treinen appeared to be the next man up. Jansen’s problems with velocity and command had moved him out of the ninth-inning role, though Manager Dave Roberts declined to ever come right out and say so. Treinen, who had closed games before (38 saves, when healthy, for Oakland in 2018), seemed to be the first alternate, at least. The Dodgers might be auditioning a second alternate, because things exploded in the ninth inning in Game 1 of t...
