Criticism poured in for Los Angeles Ange Los Angeles
Criticism poured in for Los Angeles Angels after trade falls through.
The Los Angeles Angels were looking forward to adding Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling, but the trade seems to be fallen through. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins worked out the trades and added Mookie Betts and David Price in LA and Kenta Maeda in Minnesota. During the trade discussion, LA Angels fell out of the picture. According to the initial reports over the blockbuster trade Alex Verdugo and Brusdar Graterol (from Minnesota) were going to Boston, Maeda to Minnesota and Betts and Price to LA.
The framework was a deal to send Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling to the Los Angeles Angels for Luis Rengifo along with some unnamed prospects. The initial trade never made to the official announcement as Red Sox di not like what they saw out of Graterol’s physical. After trade talks reopened, Dodgers ended up with Graterol but had to send Boston two more prospects — Jeter Downs and Connor Wong.

The murder trial of Robert Durst begins in LA.
Robert Durst, who is a New York-based real estate scion and the subject of the ‘The Jinx’ on HBO is going to face murder charges of the death of Susan Berman. In the final episode of the Junx, he seemingly admitted to committing three crimes while mumbling to himself when he was going to a restroom wearing a microphone for the recorded interviews. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Windham later referred to this as “a succinct confession.”
Durst was heard saying on the live mic “What the hell did I do?” followed by “killed them all, of course” ten seconds later. Though it sounded like a confession, new information has come up that suggests it was edited out of sequence and it is only a part. Just a day before the sixth and final episode of The Jinx aired on HBO; he was arrested and charged with first-degree murder for the death of Berman.
