Sparks shooting for better start Wednesday vs. Fever

Oh, they know. The Sparks are well aware their slow starts aren’t helping them. They want to avoid having to dig out of holes like the 17-point chasm they had in the first half of their loss to Seattle, or the quick 13-point deficit they faced in the loss to Chicago. They’d rather not have to overcome early-game hiccups such as their three turnovers in the first five possessions of the victory over Connecticut. “We talked about it, but talking is one thing. We gotta go out and do it,” Sparks sta...

Chargers proving to be NFL’s most responsible team

Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa is known for his intense training, a big reason why he was awarded with a five-year, $135 million contract extension last week. But now he’s being asked to tone it down for the first three weeks of training camp that consists solely of Zoom meetings, walk-throughs and strength and conditioning. It’s part of the ramp-up period that was created after the offseason program was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. In a normal summer, Bosa said his workout da...

California District Attorneys Urge Roger Goodell To Pull NFL’s Stephon Clark PSA

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is being urged to pull a public service announcement that talks about the death of Stephon Clark. The California District Attorneys Association announced on Tuesday that they had sent a letter to Goodell urging that the PSA be removed, arguing that the video leaves out critical facts about the case. “Though well-intentioned, the video performs a disservice instead of a public service by omitting the crucial facts which preceded Mr. Clark’s trag...

Whicker: Jon Rahm might be the one to dislodge golf’s logjam at the top

He grew up 70 miles from Pedrena, the Bethlehem of Spanish golf. Jon Rahm wanted to be Seve Ballesteros when he grew up, even if Ballesteros never really did. Two weeks ago, Rahm won The Memorial Tournament and became World No. 1, the first player from Spain to get there after Pedrena’s favorite won. But Rahm didn’t favor the same path. Ballesteros took squiggly routes through flora and fauna, and then triumphantly would chip and putt his way out of disaster. Rahm plays the game from the sensibl...

Rams QB Jared Goff finally has something to shout about

The first day of Jared Goff’s fifth Rams training camp felt unusual. Which is to say it felt just like everything else about sports in 2020. You could hear it in his voice afterward. “Sorry,” the Rams’ quarterback said when he paused for a moment during a Zoom chat with reporters Monday evening. “My throat’s a little scratchy from yelling all day. I haven’t yelled in a few months.” The 2020 Rams team, which followed NFL orders and replaced official workouts and in-person strategy sessions with v...

Rockies Beat Giants 7-6, Match Best Start In Team History

DENVER (AP) — The NL West-leading Colorado Rockies are off to a sizzling start with their top slugger in a slump. Now even he’s starting to heat up.

Joey Bosa went from stressful car wait to long-lasting Charger

Joey Bosa was under stress last week when his agent and the Chargers were approaching the final hours for striking a deal in time for the first day of training camp. Bosa’s father, John, felt the brunt of the jitters. “All right, calm down,” the Chargers’ star pass rusher recalled telling his father. “We’ll have a good conversation later, hopefully.” The younger Bosa was right. He agreed to terms on a five-year, $135 million contract extension, but instead of calling his father to deliver the li...

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani won’t be able to throw for at least 4 weeks, but can DH

The chances of Shohei Ohtani pitching again for the Angels this season took a hit with the Monday news that his MRI exam showed an injury that will prevent him from throwing for four to six weeks. There are only eight weeks left in this shortened season. Ohtani, who had some discomfort after making his second appearance of the year on the mound on Sunday, was diagnosed with a grade 1-2 strain of the flexor pronator mass. The “general timetable for beginning a throwing progression following this ...

Dodgers’ Mookie Betts day to day with finger injury

The finger Mookie Betts injured during an at-bat in Sunday’s game did not prevent him from hitting a home run in that at-bat. But it could keep him out of the lineup for a few days. Betts was not in the starting lineup Monday at San Diego due to the sore middle finger on his left hand and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Betts’ status will be re-evaluated each day. “We’ll see how he responds to treatment,” Roberts said. The injury is considered “a soft-tissue injury” and X-rays taken after Sund...

Alexander: Terry Cannon was a baseball subversive, in the best of ways

If you believe in heaven, just know that it is a quirkier, more passionate and more creative place today. Terry Cannon, a librarian by occupation, a man of many and varied interests and the creator of what Jim Bouton called the “People’s Hall of Fame” in Pasadena’s Baseball Reliquary, lost his battle with bile duct cancer Saturday. He was 67. Baseball was only one of his interests, though the Reliquary and the companion Institute for Baseball Studies at Whittier College were the things for which...

Les Snead says Rams laid groundwork to contend in 2020

The world sees a team that missed the playoffs last season and then gave up one of the NFL’s most accomplished ballcarriers, among other stars of a Super Bowl run the year before. Les Snead sees it a little differently. The general manager says the Rams are contenders in 2020 after taking bold steps to improve a running game that was going backward with Todd Gurley. One of the evaluations above is true, or maybe both are true. The search for reality will be a main plot line for the Rams’ trainin...

USOPC spends $20 million more on employees than athletes in 2019

At a time when the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee has repeatedly pledged to athletes, Congress and the public that it would become  more athlete-centric, the organization spent nearly $20 million more in 2019 on its employees than it did on direct financial support to American athletes training for the Olympic Games and other major international competitions.

Angels to promote top prospect Jo Adell

The Angels will promote Jo Adell for his big league debut before Tuesday’s game in Seattle, a source confirmed on Monday. Adell, 21, is the Angels No. 1 prospect, and one of the top five in all of minor league baseball. The Angels opted against putting him on the Opening Day roster, mostly because they believed he needed to work on his defense. The Angels are expected to option Michael Hermosillo and Jared Walsh. They will also add Mike Trout to the roster on Tuesday. Trout had been on the pater...
