first_imgLast Updated: 24th July, 2020 06:26 IST LEADING OFF: Bigger Playoffs, New Texas Park, Dbacks’ MadBum Major League Baseball and the players’ union agreed Thursday to an expanded playoff structure that includes 16 teams instead of the usual 10 Associated Press Television News FOLLOW US Written By A look at what’s happening around the majors Friday:BIGGER PLAYOFFSBaseball may be embarking on a smaller regular-season schedule, but the postseason just got bigger.Major League Baseball and the players’ union agreed Thursday to an expanded playoff structure that includes 16 teams instead of the usual 10. Since 16 of 30 teams will make the postseason, there’s a very good chance that teams with a losing record will be included.It’s just another quirk in a season that’s sure to be full of them.“It’s such a unique season, why not try a little something different and make it as exciting as possible,” Colorado shortstop Trevor Story said. “I know it’s going to be such a sprint with the 60-game season; adding more playoff teams will just add to the fire and the excitement and the fandom around the game. Anything can happen in a 60-game season. I’m all for it.”The division winners in each league will be the 1-3 seeds, the second-place teams in each division will be 4-6 and the two more wild cards will be the 7 and 8 seeds. The first round will be a best-of-three series and the pairings will be 1 vs. 8, 2-7, 3-6 and 4-5.The higher seed in the first round would host all games. The sides agreed to decide tiebreaker rules later.BRAND NEW HOMEThe Texas Rangers officially open Globe Life Field, their new $1.2 billion stadium with a retractable roof. And they’ll do it with the same starting pitcher from the finale in the old stadium across the street.Lance Lynn faces the Colorado Rockies in his first opening day, getting the nod ahead of returning All-Star lefty Mike Minor and Corey Kluber, the two-time AL Cy Young winner acquired in a December trade from Cleveland. Lynn, who had 246 strikeouts last season, sent the Rangers out of the old stadium with a 6-1 win over the New York Yankees.While the building will be closed to the public, there will be a few spectators, including the parents and fiance of Rockies rookie outfielder Sam Hilliard, who grew up 10-15 minutes from the Rangers ballparks. Hilliard’s father was diagnosed two years ago with ALS and will get to see his son’s first opening day game in the majors and first big league game in Texas.MLB also gave the Rangers permission for about 150 team employees to watch the stadium’s first game from a section above right field near their offices.ASTROS BACKDusty Baker believes the Astros sign-stealing scandal is old news. It remains to be seen if the rest of baseball agrees.“It’s over now,” Houston’s new manager said earlier in camp. “I hope we don’t have to keep rehashing that over and over throughout the course of the year. It’s behind us. I’d like to leave it behind us.”In Houston’s final summer camp tuneup, three of its stars — José Altuve, Alex Bregman and George Springer — were hit by pitches in a game at Kansas City.The Astros begin their season at home against the Seattle Mariners. The franchise spent the offseason dealing with the sign-stealing scandal that cost manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow their jobs. The 71-year-old Baker was hired to replaces Hinch.MADBUM WITH D-BACKSIt’s still a little strange to see big left-hander Madison Bumgarner in a Diamondbacks uniform.The longtime San Francisco Giants ace is scheduled to make his first start with Arizona when it travels to face the San Diego Padres. Bumgarner signed an $85 million, five-year deal with the D-backs during the offseason after spending 11 years in San Francisco.He helped the Giants win three World Series titles and he was the 2014 World Series MVPKERSHAW OUTLos Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was put on the injured list just hours before he was scheduled to make his ninth opening start of his career against the San Francisco Giants.Manager Dave Roberts said Kershaw’s back stiffened up in a weight room workout two days ago. The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner was replaced by 22-year-old Dustin May. Roberts said Kershaw might be able to return as early as the team’s series against the Diamondbacks that begins July 30.Image credits: AP WATCH US LIVEcenter_img COMMENT SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV First Published: 24th July, 2020 06:26 ISTlast_img read more

Witness recalls telling Bill Cosby, ‘Dr. Huxtable, what are you doing to me?’

first_img Related Dominick Reuter/Getty Images(NORRISTOWN, Pa.) — A woman who accuses Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her lashed out at the comedian in a Pennsylvania court on Wednesday in an apparent attempt get him to acknowledge what she claims he allegedly did to her in a Las Vegas hotel room more than 30 years ago.Chelan Lasha, one of six woman scheduled to testify for the prosecution that Cosby drugged and assaulted them, told the court that Cosby allegedly molested her in 1986 when she was just a teenager.In a dramatic moment that diverted from the prosecution’s script, Lasha attempted to address the 80-year-old Cosby directly. Staring at him from the witness stand, she said, “You remember, don’t you, Mr. Cosby?”Cosby did not make eye contact with Lasha during her outburst, staring down at the defense table as the presiding judge called for a lunch recess.The confrontation came on the third day of Cosby’s retrial in Montgomery County Court in Norristown on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. His first trial ended in a mistrial in June when a jury could not reach a verdict.The first trial hinged mostly on the testimony of one Cosby accuser, Andrea Constand, who says Cosby drugged her and violated her in 2004 at his home in suburban Philadelphia.While Constand is scheduled to testify in the retrial, the prosecution has been allowed to call five additional women who claim they were sexually assaulted by Cosby in an attempt prove a pattern of criminal conduct by the famous defendant.Earlier Wednesday, Lasha sobbed on the witness stand as she described allegedly being attacked by Cosby in 1986 in the so-called Elvis Presley suite of the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel.She told the jury that she was a 17-year-old aspiring model when Cosby invited her to his room. She said she was battling a cold when she arrived at Cosby’s suite and that he gave her a blue pill and a shot of Amaretto sweet Italian liqueur to wash it down.She recalled Cosby allegedly telling her that the pill would “help break up the cold” and urging her to drink a second shot of Amaretto.Lasha said the pill knocked her out and when she came to she was wearing a hotel robe with nothing on underneath. She recalled that Cosby woke her up by clapping his hands loudly and repeatedly saying, “Daddy says, ‘Wake up!’”As she regained consciousness, Cosby, she testified, was allegedly fondling her and humping her, making deep guttural grunts.“Dr. Huxtable, what are you doing to me?” she said she told Cosby, using the name of his TV character from “The Cosby Show.”Prior to her testimony, Judge Steven O’Neill ruled that the defense could raise Lasha’s 2007 conviction for making a false statement to police, but the judge warned he would sharply limit exploration of the incident during cross-examination.It was not immediately clear if the prosecution was aware of Lasha’s conviction before calling her to testify.“This case is about credibility,” O’Neill told prosecutors prior to issuing his ruling. “The crime is a crime of falsehood; that’s all that matters.”Cosby has denied all charges of sexually assaulting and drugging women.Lasha was the second accuser to take the stand in the retrial.On Tuesday, Heidi Thomas, formerly Heidi Johnson, testified that Cosby sexually assaulted her when she was a 24-year-old aspiring comedic actress.She said she met Cosby in 1984 in Reno, Nevada, after he offered through her agent to give her acting coaching. She said she was flown to Reno and driven to a home, where she found Cosby alone.According to Thomas, he asked her to do a monologue in which she would play an intoxicated person and urged her to take a sip of white wine, which she did. She said the next thing she remembered was waking up to find Cosby molesting her.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more
