LA: Little bit of this, little bit of that

⚾️Angels: Five women working in sports media anonymously came forward on Monday to detail the unsolicited photos, texts, and inappropriate behavior they were subjected to by Angels’ pitching coach Mickey Callaway.

  • Callaway, who denied any wrongdoing, was suspended by the Angels on Tuesday and will undergo an MLB investigation.
  • It’s infuriating how women in sports (along with many other industries) are put in uncomfortable situations again, and again, and again.

🏀NBA: They’re coming home. The Clippers rounded out their six-game road trip with a victory last night over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Doesn’t quite make up for Tuesday’s loss to the Brooklyn Nets and their Big Three, but we’ll take it.

  • Meanwhile, fresh off a seven-game road trip of their own, the Lakers take on the Denver Nuggets tonight at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. We can’t guarantee a win, but we can guarantee there will be no Courtside Karens.

🏒Kings: The Kings lost Tuesday’s “Freeway Face-Off” to the Anaheim Ducks 3–1, but it wasn’t all a wash. Nineteen-year-old winger Arthur Kaliyev made his NHL debut and scored his first NHL goal. Seeing #34 in Forum Blue Purple and Gold reminds us of a certain LA sporting legend.
