7 Reasons You Should Still Keep a Paper Map in Your Glovebox

Ever since Google Maps launched its app in 2008, I’ve been using GPS to get around town, and across the country. For a decade, a digital voice from my phone has led me, turn-by-turn, in cities I’m not familiar with and even cities I’ve lived in for years. But during the past year or so, I’ve become uncomfortable with my reliance on GPS for a variety of reasons. So I bought a paper map of my fair city of Tulsa, as well as a road atlas of the United States. (Apparently, I’m not alone in thi...

EPA Inspector General Report finds massive waste from Trump's Pruitt flying business class, staying in swanky hotels

The EPA's Office of the Inspector General has published the results of a long investigation into Pruitt's spending, finding that he bilked the taxpayer out of nearly a million dollars by breaking government rules on flying business class, staying in fancy hotel...

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger exits game after being hit by a pitch on his knee

LOS ANGELES — Dodgers right fielder Cody Bellinger left Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds after three innings when he was hit by a pitch. With one out and a runner on first base, Bellinger faced a 1-and-1 count when he was struck on his left knee by a 95-mph fastball from Reds starter Luis Castillo. Bellinger immediately crumpled to the ground and was visited by Manager Dave Roberts and soft tissue specialist Yosuke Nakajima. The three chatted, and Bellinger was allowed to remain in the ...

Dodgers’ Rich Hill, Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu are on the mend

LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw preferred to work in relative silence as he threw his final bullpen session before his 2019 debut. Rich Hill grunted and groaned his way through four simulated innings at Dodger Stadium on Friday. Good, bad or ugly, Hill followed each of his 46 pitches with a primal moan that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on the tennis courts of Indian Wells. You wouldn’t know if you were within earshot, but Hill left the mound feeling encouraged. Kershaw remains on track to st...

Sally Rooney’s first two books are perfectly of the moment

Ignore the m-word and read Sally Rooney: How Should a Millennial Be? As a portrait of young people today, Rooney’s books are remarkably precise—she captures meticulously the way a generation raised on social data thinks and talks. Rooney’s characters love to announce where they fall on the matrix of taste and social awareness. They read Patricia Lockwood and watch Greta Gerwig movies; they read Twitter for jokes. Decisions are made according to typologies. There’s built-in social meaning for an...

Dodgers’ Russell Martin goes to injured list with flareup of lower back issue

ST. LOUIS — A lower back problem that has bothered him at times flared up again and landed Russell Martin on the injured list Wednesday. The 36-year-old Martin was sidelined briefly during spring training with the same issue and blamed it on overdoing a hitting drill. This time, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said it flared up while Martin was taking ground balls during the team’s pre-game workout. “Talking to Russ, he’s had it happen before, most recently in spring training,” Roberts said. “It’s ...

Hyun-Jin Ryu goes to injured list, Dodgers consider options to fill rotation

ST. LOUIS — After leaving the game in the second inning of his start Monday with a groin injury that recalled last year’s three months on the injured list, Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu assured reporters that it did not feel as severe this time. His diagnosis was accurate. Ryu reported to the stadium feeling better than when he left Monday’s game – “which is a good sign,” according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. But there is no timetable for how quickly Ryu can rejoin the rotation. “When he...

Clayton Kershaw set to pitch in Double-A then join Dodgers rotation

ST. LOUIS — Clayton Kershaw’s final step before rejoining the Dodgers rotation will be taken in Tulsa, Okla. Kershaw is scheduled to make his second minor-league rehab start for the Double-A Tulsa Drillers on Tuesday night.

Trail Mix – April 2019

“If I can’t dance with you, then I won’t dance at all. I’ll just sit this one out, with my back to the wall.” Whether it was penning one of the finest love songs ever to grace my ears in “Magnolia Wind,” singing about the wonder home grown tomatoes, or trusting in your cape, Guy Clark knew his way around a guitar and a song.

Dodgers, under new farm director Will Rhymes, try to maintain a steady pipeline

Will Rhymes could lean on a thing like prospect rankings as a gauge of his department’s success. The Dodgers’ first-year director of player development inherited a system that’s ranked among MLB Pipeline’s top 10 each of the past five years. By this measure, the Dodgers’ sustained success is without peer. Prospect ranking lists are mere opinion polls, of course. The opinions that matter more to Rhymes are those of the players that pass through his system. So far he likes what he’s hearing. “We’v...
