london...as the only cities to host the summer olympics three times. los angeles hosted the games back in 19-32 and 19- 84. in sports... the raiders first round draft pick is out of serious legal hot-water...... and with baseball's trade deadline today... the a's let go of yet another star player... mark carpenter has more on that story... and all the sports... coming up
with new team president dave kaval, the a's are taking steps toward building a re- vitalized culture. but at least for now, some traditions remain the same... once again, the green and gold busy at the trade deadline and give away one of their top players. in a move that was widely expected, ace pitcher sonny gray traded to the new york yankees. this puts an end to the righty's six-year tenure in oakland. the a's took him in the first round in
the 2011 draft... and he made his major league debut two seasons later. the 27-year-old racked up a 44-36 record with 3.42- career era he now joins a yankees club that leads the a-l east...and the hope is he is a missing piece to the rotation that goes deep into the playoffs. in addition to gray, the a's also gave away 1-point-5 million dollars..but received several prospects in return. and that wasn't their only move of the day.. infielder adam rosales sent to arizona in exchange for a minor-league pitcher. this move is not much of a surprise... as it was expected the 34-year-old would be designated for assignment once chad pinder is off the disabled list. through 71- games-- rosie...was hitting 234...with 27-ribbies. and the excitement isn't over yet... a's hosting the giants at the coliseum tonight to open the bay bridge series. and we saw a big transaction down in l-a. as the dodgers, who have the best record in baseball, add to their rotation by acquiring yu darvish from the texas

during his time in college. kyle shanahan...loving what he's seeing from the rookie. "you know, the one he got today i was probably the most excited about because it was the same one he had yesterday where it was a play action and he killed the fullback and went to tackle the back and the wide receiver was wide open behind him and he was still looking for run. he had the same play today and he didn't fill up in the run, and he dropped back and got a pick. so, it's just, one play he got beat on bad yesterday and today we ran the same play at him and he got an interception off of it. so, that's what you want to see.""i guess the ball got a thing for me. i don't got a thing for the ball.
