Alexander: Austin Barnes is more than just a personal catcher

The Fox broadcast guys were fumbling with this one. Austin Barnes, heretofore Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher and now appearing to add Walker Buehler’s starts to his resumé, had just followed a near-perfect safety squeeze bunt in the fourth inning with a booming 425-foot home run into the Tampa Bay bullpen in the sixth, for the Dodgers’ sixth run in their 6-2 Game 3 victory on Friday night. At first, John Smoltz suggested – guessed? – that it might have been the first time it ever happened in...

Dodgers’ Justin Turner continues his postseason dominance in World Series

Justin Turner celebrates his hits with a simple gesture: he raises both wrists, droops his hands downward, and wags his fingers back and forth. Teammate Chris Taylor inspired it after a four-hit game in 2017. Turner picked it up. Now it’s become a ritual. The ritual is getting a lot of camera time in 2020. Turner has hits in 13 of his last 15 games dating to Game 1 of the National League Division Series. He’s reached base one way or another in each of his last 11. Turner’s steady bat was thumpin...

Whicker: Walker Buehler’s Octobers belong in an era when people were actually watching

If nobody sees Walker Buehler throw enough heavy baseballs to scatter the Tampa Bay Rays like tenpins, does it still count? The Dodgers think so. They lead this World Series 2-1, thanks to a 6-2 Game 3 win on Friday that continued Buehler’s blossoming into a legend of the fall. It wasn’t just him. Justin Turner took Charlie Morton deep in the first inning, then snatched Mike Zunino’s bullet and turned it into a double play in the third inning. Zunino was the ninth batter to face Buehler. It took...

Dodgers torment Rays with two-out hits, take World Series Game 3

ARLINGTON, Texas — Just when you think you’re out – they pull you back in. The Dodgers’ offense has been ruthless this postseason when opposing pitchers start to peek toward the dugout, wondering which flavor Gatorade (the ubiquitous beverage of the postseason) they will swig with satisfaction after retiring the side. Five times on Friday night the Tampa Bay Rays pitchers were one out away from sweet hydration when the Dodgers scored. The two-out torment carried the Dodgers to a 6-2 victory over...

Dodgers’ unpredictable bullpen order is by design

The Dodgers were leading the Tampa Bay Rays 8-1 in the seventh inning when Dylan Floro entered Game 1 of the World Series. He only retired one of the three batters he faced, then gave the ball to left-hander Victor Gonzalez, who allowed both inherited runners to score. In Game 2, the Dodgers were trailing 1-0 when Floro relieved Tony Gonsolin in the second inning. This time, Floro was tasked with retiring a different trio than he saw the day before: Willy Adames, Kevin Kiermaier and Mike Zunino....

Rams have Brandon Staley on their side for this Bears game

THOUSAND OAKS — They can laugh about it now, since they’re on the same side getting ready for a prime-time Rams-Chicago Bears game coming up on Monday. It wasn’t as much fun in 2018 for Brandon Staley, then one of the Bears’ assistant coaches trying to figure out how to stop the Rams’ offense, and for Sean McVay, then as now the Rams coach and play-caller. “It was stressful. It was a hard week of preparation,” Staley, who is in his first season as the Rams’ defensive coordinator, remembered Thur...

Chargers mixing up the defense with little success

COSTA MESA — Jalen Ramsey once said nothing ever changed in Gus Bradley’s defensive scheme. It was the same plays week after week while the two were together in Jacksonville. Ramsey was likely just stating the obvious then, not throwing shade at the head coach the Jaguars fired in 2017. Bradley knows his scheme is predictable. But plenty has changed since Jacksonville, with Ramsey now playing for the Rams and Bradley in his fourth season as the Chargers’ defensive coordinator. The Jaguars will m...

Report: NBA considering December start date for upcoming season

First there was no parade. Now there could be precious little time for the Lakers’ title victory lap before the next NBA season begins. Multiple media outlets reported Friday that the NBA plans to begin the 2020-21 season on Dec. 22 and play a shortened 72-game schedule, an agenda shared at a Board of Governors meeting. The league still has to negotiate the start of next season with the National Basketball Players’ Association, which The New York Times reported has asked for at least eight weeks...

USC men’s basketball trying to atone for lost offseason

Another year, another major offseason overhaul for the USC men’s basketball team. Only three scholarship athletes who played last season return, all of them rising sophomores. Joining them are a handful of transfers and a couple of freshmen. But the Trojans didn’t have a typical offseason to adjust, as COVID-19 pandemic protocols in California prevented the team from practicing prior to this month. Now that the Trojans have reconvened, the build-up to the season is neither completely a training ...

USC women’s basketball seeks tournament bid in 2020-21

Last year’s USC women’s basketball team was disproportionately young – three seniors and seven freshmen. It led to some serious growing pains, like the Trojans losing their first five Pac-12 games. But sometimes USC’s young talent won out, such as the stunning double-overtime victory over rival UCLA, which at the time was the only undefeated team in the country. Now all those freshmen, including Pac-12 Freshman of the Year Alissa Pili, are back and a year older, and head coach Mark Trakh hopes t...

UCLA backup QB Colson Yankoff moving to wide receiver

When talking about UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson during a conference call Friday, UCLA coach Chip Kelly made a surprising revelation by announcing that Colson Yankoff, a highly regarded dual-threat quarterback who transferred to UCLA from Washington and sat out the 2019 season, had asked to be moved to wide receiver. Kelly granted him that wish. Yankoff was a four-star recruit at Coueur d’Alene HS in Washington and the No. 6-ranked dual-threat quarterback in his class in 2018 before ...

#2 Alabama Has Won 13 Straight Against Tennessee, CBS’ Brian Jones Doesn’t See That Streak Breaking Saturday

(CBS Local)- Second-ranked Alabama passed its first major test of the season last weekend, pulling away from Georgia in the second half to win 41-24 and remain unbeaten on the season. Now, they head to Knoxville to face a Tennessee team that, after losing to Georgia two weeks ago, came unraveled last week in a blowout loss to Kentucky 34-7. The matchup appears to be a game of teams heading in opposite directions, as the Tide have only continued to improve offensively while the Volunteers have re...

Ex-49er Dana Stubblefield Sentenced To 15 Years To Life For Raping Developmentally Disabled Woman

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Former San Francisco 49ers star defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison Thursday for raping a developmentally disabled woman who prosecutors said he lured to his home with the promise of a babysitting job. The sentence was issued by a judge in San Jose after denying a defense motion for a new trial, the Mercury News reported. Last week, the Sixth District Court of Appeal denied a related petition filed on behalf of Stubblefiel...

Rams see Kai Forbath as a seasoned alternative at kicker

THOUSAND OAKS — Help for the Rams’ kicking game is on the way, but exactly when Kai Forbath will get his chance is up in the air. Forbath, the former Notre Dame High (Sherman Oaks) and UCLA kicker whom the Rams signed on Tuesday, won’t be able to clear the league’s COVID-19 protocols and join the team until Sunday. That makes it likely that struggling rookie Samuel Sloman will still be kicking for the Rams (4-2) in their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears (5-1) — with Forbath, a nine-ye...

To build a dynasty, Lakers must navigate a tricky, unpredictable offseason

LeBron James, the basketball player, loves to win. LeBron James, the sports fan, loves winners. While he grew up in Akron in the shadow of Ohio sports franchises, James was always attracted to the most powerful teams in sports, a lifelong New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys fan. That love of winners is one of the factors that drew him to the Lakers, the third organization to which he has now brought a championship. While he might stand alone in Cavaliers history, James does seem to love the idea...
