What does Mike Trout’s contract mean for the Dodgers?

Editor’s note: This is today’s edition of the Inside the Dodgers newsletter by J.P. Hoornstra. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here. Cross another potential free agent off your 2020-21 wish list. With all due respect to Mookie Betts, who stands alone as the crown jewel of that winter’s free agent crop, Mike Trout is not just another potential free agent. He was the man that had Bryce Harper lobbying (tampering?) him to come to Philadelphia on a local radio station. He’s the b...

5 Unsung Word of Mouth Marketing Examples

Word of mouth marketing is — and has always been — the most effective (and cost-effective) way to generate customers and grow any business. But for a long time, word of mouth marketing has been mostly ignored in favor of outbound and inbound acquisition efforts, plus a big shift toward social media. The truth is that social media and word of mouth marketing are NOT THE SAME THING any more than toothpaste is the same as a toothpaste tube. Word of mouth is the toothpaste; social media is the tube...

Ducks primed for Jets rematch after beatdown last month

ANAHEIM — The last time the Ducks faced the Winnipeg Jets, they were coming off a nine-day hiatus for the All-Star break and their bye week. The Ducks were a mess, plain and simple. They were no match for the faster, smarter and more creatives Jets, who thumped them 9-3. The Ducks gave up six goals in a period for the first time in their 25-year history. Somebody by the name of Jack Roslovic scored three times for the Jets, who clicked three times on the power play and fired six pucks past John ...

LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting out for Lakers at Bucks tonight

MILWAUKEE — For Tuesday night’s tilt between the Bucks and the Lakers, there will be low stakes and no stars. The Lakers (31-39) announced at morning shootaround that LeBron James would be shelved with a sore left groin – the same one that kept the 34-year-old All-Star out for 17 straight games earlier in the season. Minutes later, the Bucks (52-18) acknowledged Giannis Antetokounmpo, one of the NBA’s leading MVP candidates, would also sit out the game with a sprained ankle at Fiserv Forum. That...

As Costs Skyrocket, More US Cities Stop Recycling

Recycling, for decades an almost reflexive effort by American households and businesses to reduce waste and help the environment, is collapsing in many parts of the country [Editor's note: the link may be paywalled; syndicated source]. From a report: Philadelphia is now burning about half of its 1.5 million residents' recycling material in an incinerator that converts waste to energy. In Memphis, the international airport still has recycling bins around the terminals, but every collected can, bo...

Penguins’ Fanbase Wrong for Blaming Murray

With only nine games left in the regular season, the Pittsburgh Penguins currently sit in third place in the tight-knit Metropolitan Division. They are three points out of first place, but also only four points away from being out of the playoffs entirely. The division is poised to send five teams to the postseason, and the Penguins have had ample opportunity to climb into the top spot, but some untimely losses have landed them in third. Even with a plethora of injuries, the Penguins have battle...

Giving Circles Are Helping Young Women Make 'Change, Not Charity' In Their Communities

“Your donation, however small, matters!” You've probably heard something like that from political fundraisers, sad animal commercials, friends on Facebook. So you click on those "Donate $5" buttons, submit your credit card to GoFundMe campaigns, then just sit back, hoping others are doing the same. But there are some people — even young non billionaires — who are getting the satisfaction of seeing their money make a real difference in their communities and in the world through another model of ...

Lawyers For Guy Who Stole Terracotta Warrior’s Thumb Try Defense That’s — Let’s Call It Novel

At a holiday party in 2017 at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, an inebriated Michael Rohana allegedly broke off and pocketed the thumb of one of the 2,000-year-old Chinese terracotta warriors on display there at the time; FBI investigators found it in his home desk drawer a few weeks later. Now his public defenders are using some inventive arguments to get his charges reduced: that Rohana was too drunk to intend to steal the thumb, that the thumb wasn’t worth enough to qualify for the ch...

Sabres’ Season Filled With Streaks

The Buffalo Sabres’ 2018-19 season will likely be remembered as a collection of streaks. Some lasting a month, some a few games and some as little as 27 seconds. Unfortunately, most of them should be forgotten. Buffalo Sabres goalie Carter Hutton had eight straight wins in November, but this season he’s also had five streaks of three or more straight losses.

Alexander: Mike Trout’s Angels deal rewards baseball’s best, and most humble, star

The biggest takeaway from the news of Mike Trout’s impending mega-contract: Humility pays. And maybe there’s a certain amount of karma involved in the idea that the guy who doesn’t try to sell himself, doesn’t make headlines off the field, and doesn’t try to get managers fired or set himself above his teammates just got the richest current contract in pro sports. Those commentators along the Eastern Seaboard who salivated over the idea of Trout becoming a Phillie or a Yankee after his contract r...
