Here’s a look at the trending news for today, August 2nd:
New York (AFP) – Joey Gallo’s unproductive tenure with the New York Yankees ended when he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday for junior right-back Clayton Peter.
The 28-year-old defensive player was acquired from Texas on July 29 last year and hit .159 for the Yankees with 25 Homers, 46 RBIs, and 194 hits in 421 bats. He was repeatedly booed by fans at Yankee Stadium, lost his playing time in recent weeks to Matt Carpenter and became unnecessary when New York acquired Andrew Benintende from Kansas City last week.
“I have a lot of respect for the way he works, how he carried himself,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “A lot of us really feel for the situation he was in and the burden he felt and carried.”

“That number was around before I became CEO,” Norman replied. “So, that number is right there, yeah. Look, Tiger is a needle-driver, right?”
“So, of course, you’re going to look the absolute best. They originally got in touch with Tiger before I became CEO, so yeah, that number is somewhere in that neighborhood.”
