(Courtesy Greg Redfern) If you’re a night owl or an early riser and like to look at the night sky, a big show is in store early Wednesday: The annual Leonid Meteor Shower is expected to peak between midnight and dawn. The Leonids were first seen in 902 A.D. and “storm” every few decades, producing hundreds to thousands of meteors an hour. The last Leonid storm was in 2001. This year, a dark sky site should produce 10 to 15 Leonid meteors an hour, but the presence of the moon will wash out dimmer Leonids. Each year at this time, our planet encounters a debris stream of cometary particles made by Comet Temple-Tuttle as it orbits the sun. As Earth moves in its orbit around the sun, it collides with this debris stream, and the particles hit our atmosphere at 45 miles per second (i.e., 155,000 mph) to become “shooting stars” or “falling stars.”...

    90 Day Fiancé Tell-All: Jovi Explains Why He Took Yara to a Strip Club on Their Anniversary (Exclusive) Nvidia earnings top Street view with record data-center, gaming revenue, but supply constraints still a concern Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani said Wednesday night that he wasn’t bothered by comments made by Detroit Tigers broadcaster Jack Morris the night before — something that resulted in the Hall of Fame pitcher being suspended by Bally Sports. Morris used a mocking accent when talking about the Japanese star during Tuesday night’s game. “I did see the footage and I heard it,” Ohtani said through an interpreter, via The Athletic’s Sam Blum. “Personally, I’m not offended and I didn’t take anything personally … He is a Hall of Famer. He has a big influence in the baseball world. It’s kind of a tough spot.” Angels manager Joe Maddon had similar feelings as Ohtani before Wednesday’s game, and said he felt that Morris’ apology was sincere. “My take on the whole thing is that the Detroit Tigers reacted the way they wanted to,” Maddon...

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — When the Red Sox signed Garrett Richards, the veteran right-hander’s exceptional spin rate was considered one of his strongest attributes. Yet now that MLB is cracking down on pitchers using any substances at all to get a grip on baseballs, he’s hit a bit of a rough patch. READ MORE: Bear Causes 3-Car Crash On Mass Pike And that’s putting it mildly. Richards lasted just 1.2 innings on Wednesday night in Tampa, surrendering five runs — four earned — on three hits, a hit batter and four walks while serving up a pair of homers. It was a continuation of a trend for Richards, who is 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA in his last three starts. He’s walked seven batters (with three HBPs) in 11 innings, and opponents have hit .382 with a 1.161 OPS against him during that time. After a rough start to the season, Richards posted a 2.89 ERA in nine starts from mid-April to early June. His ERA has jumped just about a full run in the four starts since. Richards’...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The Golden State Warriors locked up the No. 8 spot in NBA Western Conference Play-In Round with a win over the Memphis Grizzlies Sunday and star Draymond Green appears to already be in his usual ornery post-season mindset.

    President Biden’s confused and meandering speech to Congress on Wednesday night bombed worse than the Academic Oscars earlier this week. The half-empty House chamber made it look like a birthday party where nobody showed up. And the sad losers who did show up were all early-vaxxed and double-masked. Their mothers should have made them all wear helmets. At least you cannot say it was a terribly partisan affair. Democrats and Republicans alike were joined in the profound desire to drift off to sleep. Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of the world’s reigning experts at pretending to be awake, blinked back the suffocating tedium. Maybe it was her unnecessary mask. Serious question: What does it tell you that these morons willingly cut oxygen flow to their own brains — yet don’t sound any dumber than when they did back when they still breathed freely? Serious suggestion: Every single Republican lawmaker in that chamber Wednesday night who had already been vaccinated and wore a mask for the television cameras should resign in disgrace.

    During Wednesday night’s loss to the Braves, Gleyber Torres’ embarrassing effort instantly became a symbol for the Yankees’ struggles. The New York Yankees lost for the sixth time in their last seven games Wednesday night against the Atlanta Braves, as their offense continues to be lackluster. They have now scored three runs or fewer in 11 of 17 games this season. Shortstop Gleyber Torres went 1-for-4 on Wednesday night, and he now has a slash-line to .186/.294/.220 with an OPS + of 53 this season.

    The Mets were an absolute disaster on defense Wednesday night against the Cubs. The New York Mets are having a rough start to the 2021 season.

The Mets were blown out by a final score of 16-4 on a night when Francisco Lindor hit his first home run with his new team. The early 1-0 lead he provided was forgotten about quickly. But the offense was not the story from this one. It was the absolute disastrous performance on defense that doomed the Mets.
