The struggle for the the ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers and there's a hearing on July 7. But they were back in court today. The latest in this whole thing -- sterling was in court today asking a judge to order her husband. Everybody knows Donald Sterling. To stop trying to intimidate opposing lawyers and the psychiatrist.

And I'm gonna have the illusion right so how are you give my medical record -- might -- To a law firm who hire you. They over the course but I'm Indian truck with a lot of -- -- -- -- incompetent. Stupid doctor. There is a lot here record how much we paid for that bit of a conspiracy ill from the lawyer about the other did try to establish that I would not able. The perform are more able sport that you are getting it didn't do any. -- they absolutely and I don't understand it aired. Here Larry it would -- -- at -- AM. They're good ethical -- -- why would you get quiet my personal mental work -- -- mother to a lawyer for the purpose of elite. I'm just sell it cited that consoles -- so. I just can't believe they don't have your lawyer an Irish company called -- Volumes Bailey now an automatic get -- fired from -- you lady I think about it. -- lived -- when you shoot that way you know you that you.

He does the conspiracy and I'll show you what I think that you might say -- court at your insurance company called it my favorite Donald -- In case you forgot to look at your belly -- Bigger -- -- over the course to a lawyer. So obviously is certainly true view it illustrated that transparency. Would get this -- you very much out there. That was the when the recording was being made the psychiatrist for his psychiatrist was standing at a table that was on a speakerphone with lawyers all sitting around. -- how it was being recorded. That was the first one other second when a shorter and a little more to the point. I would like you're hurting your company call option hey. Saturday eight. You know why or why. Well I'll walk without the patient and you don't pay and you -- it -- if you never called me and they. On or heritage he. It was. Shouted you could. Call -- Wreckage and the gators.

By the way the phone number if you're wondering is the general switchboard number we're not. Broadcasting out as his personal number it's the general switch port number for his company which anybody could yet. He doesn't sound like. He's ready to. Now assume control of his company does. What are our closest thing in the -- that doesn't sound like -- It's not like he understands exactly was happening how what the way his description of what's happened is what happened. Am I would that's proof that he is he is not mentally capable of running a franchise. To me it sounds like guy who's upset. That somebody is using his record. As he said to sue him here's the problem okay but it is there if he's right. Why isn't his lawyer calling now why is giving them -- he's got because he's unstable and are not because you know -- -- -- are starting to exist there and he may be unstable I don't I don't know. But I would say. When you're rich when your group as rich as he has. In years old is he is. You probably haven't you what the bleep attitude. I'm rich. I've got away with a lot of things in my life. I can do this. Money well money will give you a lot of power it will money won't take away a filter sometimes. A money won't take away protocol. A lot of people -- OK this is the property and go through the proper channels I'll do it this -- -- him he's eighty years old he's got tons of money. And from his perspective to try to take -- team way the he's gonna fight like hell for his team he made the same point like seven times. -- -- -- Over and over and over over well first all you don't call them anyway her lawyer contacts -- that's see that's end and I think to judge today will rule. Mr. sterling and allowed to call these people. And leave messages but what was his who -- he actually speaking dude is -- lawyer he called the -- psychiatrist and -- okay and is. Was at a valuation done for the purposes of the trial because. Well it wasn't his personal psychiatrist who did -- -- of written on him correct because that would be a client doctor privileged that. Would have been broken in that case this guy I was specifically who over the doctor's work. Were specifically about it hired by his by more than one case by his wife for the case yes so what to complain about that's why they were fired. Well according to a CNN and that's the story was updated. About an hour ago.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
