Mike Trout stays mum the day after record-breaking deal with Angels

TEMPE, Ariz. — For Mike Trout, Wednesday marked the first day of the rest of his life as an Angel. Trout returned to work a day after he was excused from showing up to Tempe Diablo Stadium amid the news that he and the Angels had agreed to a 12-year, $426.5-million deal. With the record-breaking contract still not finalized, Trout declined to talk to the media. Instead, he laughed with his teammates during stretching, as they discussed the feasibility of bringing a fish on team flights. “Only if...

Granada Hills baseball honors coach’s grandfather by reenacting 50-year old photo

In the movie Moneyball, Billy Beane, the general manager for the Oakland A’s at the time, played by Brad Pitt, famously said, “It’s hard not to be romantic about baseball.” He wasn’t lying. Granada Hills Charter baseball coach Matt Matuszak, who is often seen meticulously touching up the baseball diamond on campus, sits an old black and white photograph of his grandfather, Frank Matuszak, in his office. The photo shows Frank, who was the head baseball (and football) coach at Pasadena High in the...

Did you know MLB Opening Day was today in Tokyo? Ichiro, Mariners top A’s

TOKYO — Ichiro drew all the cheers. Most everyone else on the Seattle Mariners did all the hitting. A crowd that came to salute Ichiro Suzuki in his homeland saw Domingo Santana deliver the biggest hit at the Tokyo Dome, a grand slam that sent Seattle over the Oakland Athletics 9-7 on Wednesday in the Major League Baseball opener. Batting ninth and knowing he’d get two plate appearances, Ichiro popped up and worked a walk. The 45-year-old star took his spot in right field to begin the bottom of ...

I am back in Arizona. I have good memories of my boy wrangling time in California. My daughter in law returned to find all five of them well and fed. I even watched the youngest play two baseball games. They are young enough that they say they don’t keep score (I bet the adults do) but a lot of hits and runs occured. We had some beautiful weather while I was there too. A lovely park near my son’s home. Red wood trees are everywhere. I saw this in a grocery store. I don’t know ...

Angels pick Trevor Cahill for Opening Day start

TEMPE, Ariz. — Trevor Cahill is going to be the Angels’ Opening Day starter. Although it’s likely not the way the Angels scripted their rotation when spring training began, Cahill so far is the only one of the starters who has gotten through spring training without any health issues. His 78 pitches in his last start were the most that any Angels starter has thrown this spring. “We were kind of juggling injuries and we weren’t sure (who was going to start the opener),” Manager Brad Ausmus said on...

Vontaze Burfict on joining nemesis Antonio Brown on Raiders: 'It's all positive, man'

Ugly history with new teammate Antonio Brown One of those hits was a brutal helmet-to-helmet blow late in a 2016 playoff game that ended up costing Burfict three games and more than $500,000. This, of course, will provide a personnel challenge in Oakland as Brown and Burfict will now be teammates. The 2016 hit wasn't the only time Burfict went after Brown's head.

Best US vintage trailer rentals

Before there was #vanlife, there was trailer life. In the 1950s and ‘60s, hitting the great highways and meandering backroads of the US with the family and a nicely outfitted trailer was the best way to see the country, and tons of great models emerged from that time period, including the now-iconic and coveted silver Airstreams. Nowadays, you’re more likely to see sleek modern RVs and boxy fold-out campers at campsites, but these charming relics of the USA’s great road-trip era are still flo...

Suburb Staid No More: A California-French Family Remake a Bay Area House

When we first met Stéphanie Ross several years ago, she had a hint of plaster dust in her hair. That was at Remodelista’s San Francisco Market, where she was showing her children’s clothing line, Les Petits Carreaux (now available at Anthropologie and in some women’s sizes, too). At the time, she had just about finished resuscitating her family’s apartment near the Champs-Élysées—we took a tour and immediately featured it: see A Grand but Understated Flat in Paris.
