For two hours, all Logan White could do was sit in his car in the Thomas Stadium parking lot as a thunderstorm rained down on Johnson City, Tenn. It was the night of Friday, May 17, and the Dodgers vice president of amateur scouting was waiting for a live look at Jacksonville pitcher Chris Anderson, a hard-throwing junior right-hander with three major league-ready pitches and a powerful 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame. Anderson was already White's likely target with the Dodgers' No. 18 overall pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball amateur draft -- a player who reminds White of power pitchers Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling.

One of the UFC's biggest events of the year takes place Saturday night, featuring a pair of high profile title fights. In the main event, all-time great Anderson Silva seeks to avenge the only loss of his UFC career and regain the UFC middleweight championship against undefeated champion Chris Weidman. Weidman knocked out Silva in July when Silva was showboating, leading to much discussion as to whether the fight result was more about Weidman or Silva. In the co-feature, Ronda Rousey defends her UFC women's bantamweight title against rival Miesha Tate.

In reviewing his historic knockout of Anderson Silva, new Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight champion Chris Weidman said victory was set up by dealing Silva a sobering reality. “He had felt my power and knew I was way more powerful than him, and he realized he couldn't hurt me with anything he was going to do,” Weidman said Tuesday in a telephone conversation with The Times. Weidman said his initial take-down and punishment of Silva set the tone.

Shades of Orel Hershiser? The Dodgers can only hope. In talking about first-round draft choice Chris Anderson on Thursday night, Logan White, the Dodgers' vice president of amateur scouting, said the big right-hander had "three quality major league pitches and a bulldog-competitive makeup to go with it.

Dodgers draft picks Chris Anderson and Tom Windle sat next to each other in the team's dugout Wednesday afternoon. No. 13 jerseys donned, the two young pitchers formed a potential look into the Dodgers' future before a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. However, it was also a look into the past. Anderson and Windle both played  in the Northwest Suburban Conference in Minnesota and were the top two players listed in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's conference most-valuable-player race three years ago. “We've known each other since we were very little, which is pretty cool,” Anderson said.

When Chris Anderson was a 5-foot-4 freshman at Anaheim Canyon, he looked like a lost middle school student. He got attention because he was the younger brother of standout guard Jerime Anderson, but few expected him to develop into one of the best basketball players in Southern California. That's exactly what he has become, as demonstrated again on Friday night, when he scored 17 points, contributed nine assists and six rebounds to help the Comanches defeat Canyon Country Canyon, 65-59, in a Southern Section Division 2AA second-round playoff game in Canyon Country.

Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White said Monday he's re-thinking his plans for a Chris Weidman-Anderson Silva rematch, and wants to get to it sooner rather than later. White told The Times in a telephone interview Monday morning that he is strongly considering making Weidman-Silva II the main event of his pre-New Year's Eve card on Dec. 28. “This is going to be the biggest fight in UFC history,” White said. In the hour after Weidman ended Silva's run of 10 UFC middleweight title defenses and 16-0 record in the organization with a stunning second-round knockout, White said the UFC's annual Super Bowl weekend card in February was a good time to consider the rematch.

Outfielder Yasiel Puig was scratched from the lineup Wednesday with what the Dodgers described as a strained right shoulder, becoming the first casualty of the brawl involving the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Puig is listed as day to day, meaning he could be ready to play when the Dodgers open a three-game series in Pittsburgh on Friday. But the rookie outfielder could be sidelined for more games, as he figures to be disciplined by the league office for his role in the fracas.

The email that could change Meg Jay's life came in December without warning, containing little more than a link. Clicking on it opened a Web page that offered Jay the most significant invitation of her career: "We're honored to have this opportunity to invite you to give a talk at TED. " Without hesitation, she accepted. And just like that, the Virginia clinical psychologist, who specializes in "twentysomethings," or the study of people in their 20s, was swept into the slipstream of a cultural juggernaut that has expanded well beyond its original focus on technology, entertainment and design.
