We're at the point where any San Diego Chargers victory can be summarized in two words. This goes back to Nov. 19, when between updates I saw a 24-7 San Diego deficit against Denver turn into a 35-27 Chargers victory and I text-messaged a friend to ask what happened. My buddy's reply: "LT happened." Flash-forward to Sunday, when the Chargers had to deal with a strong Oakland Raiders defensive effort, a shaky performance by quarterback Philip Rivers and a 14-7 Raiders lead in the fourth quarter.

If you're not investigating high-speed stock trading, you're missing one of the hottest trends on Wall Street. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. announced Friday that the Justice Department is examining high-frequency trading for possible violations of antitrust and insider-trading laws. When Justice Department investigators visit companies, they may bump into their compatriots from other state and federal agencies. The FBI disclosed this week that it is in the middle of a months-long probe.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Angels filled out their starting rotation on Tuesday, trading Mark Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-way deal. The Angels got Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox and Tyler Skaggs from the Diamondbacks, fulfilling an off-season goal of using the power-hitting Trumbo to acquire young and cost-effective pitching. Trumbo, who played first base for the Angels last season, is expected to play left field for Arizona. The Diamondbacks sent center fielder Adam Eaton to Chicago and got two players to be named -- one from the Angels, one from the White Sox. The deal is expected to be announced later Tuesday.

If you're against letting airline passengers talk on cellphones, you've gained a powerful ally. The Global Business Travel Assn., a trade group for the world's business travelers, submitted its opposition last week to a plan by the Federal Communications Commission to lift a ban on voice calls on planes. The group, which represents about 6,000 travel managers, called onboard calls "detrimental to business travelers. " The association even quoted folk singer Pete Seeger, who borrowed heavily from the book of Ecclesiastes when he wrote "there is a time to keep silence and a time to speak.

Pau Gasol is still with the Lakers, somewhat miraculously surviving another NBA trade deadline. The 33-year-old veteran was not dealt before Thursday's noon cut-off time, keeping him with the team until his contract expires after this season. The Phoenix Suns wanted Gasol, but he didn't necessarily want them, declining to say through his representatives that he would stay with them beyond the next few months if he were traded. So Gasol becomes a free agent in July, where he won't get the $19.3 million he makes now but might still command decent money from the Lakers ... or someone else.

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Angels finalized their trade of Vernon Wells to the New York Yankees on Tuesday after the veteran outfielder passed a physical and the commissioner's office approved the cash being exchanged in the deal. The Angels will pay $28.1 million of the remaining $42 million on Wells' contract, which runs through 2014, meaning the Yankees will pick up $13.9 million of the deal. The Yankees sent Class-A pitcher Kramer Sneed and Class-A outfielder Exicardo Cayones to the Angels.

Roy Halladay this, Roy Halladay that, and the best pitcher traded Friday turned out to be a guy on the disabled list. Halladay, arguably the best pitcher in baseball, remains the ace of the Toronto Blue Jays. Jake Peavy, who has not thrown a pitch in seven weeks because of an ankle injury that might require several more weeks of rehabilitation, was traded to the same team he rejected earlier this season.

NFL free agency has started with a splash. The Miami Dolphins have traded receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears, reuniting him with quarterback Jay Cutler. The two were teammates in Denver. Fox's Jay Glazer first reported the deal, which sends the combustible star to Chicago in exchange for third-round picks in the next two drafts. The Bears were one of several teams eyeing San Diego receiver Vincent Jackson, among the most coveted offensive players in free agency.

It's official. The Lakers did not make any trades before today's noon deadline. They did not deal Dwight Howard or injured forward Pau Gasol, keeping their roster exactly the same. The Lakers were adamant they would not deal Howard, who could become a free agent in July. "Regarding Dwight, it took a while for the league to understand our position was exactly what we stated it would be. But I think they finally got it," Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said Thursday.  The Lakers were busy last year -- Derek Fisher and Luke Walton were out, Ramon Sessions and Jordan Hill were in -- but nothing come to fruition this season.

Lorenzo Semple Jr. was one of the hottest screenwriters in Hollywood in the 1970s and '80s, working on star-studded films such as "Papillon," with Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman; "Three Days of the Condor," headlined by Robert Redford; and "Never Say Never Again," Sean Connery's last movie as James Bond. But, rare in the trade, Semple didn't much mind if he was not the sole writer on a film. "Almost all the good scripts I've been involved in, I've been fired off of for one reason or another," he said in a 2011 video interview conducted by the Writers Guild Foundation.

President Obama is scheduled to visit Pope Francis at the Vatican on Thursday, and the meeting will probably take the usual form of encounters between presidents and pontiffs: a polite conversation about their common agenda on poverty and world peace, plus a gentle remonstrance from the Holy Father on abortion and religious liberty. But if Obama and Francis had time to get to know each other, they might each benefit by trading notes on practical politics, as presidents and British prime ministers often do, and on the lessons they can draw from each other's experiences.

PHILADELPHIA - If Flyers fans booed every time Jeff Carter touched the puck Monday, it must have sounded like music to his ears. With extra zip in his step if not revenge in his heart for the acrimonious end to his tenure with the Flyers, Carter scored the Kings' first goal in his first game back at the Wells Fargo Center. Another former Flyer longer removed, Justin Williams, scored the second goal of the Kings' eventual 3-2 victory. "There's an added incentive any time you play your former team, especially the way things ended here," Williams said of Carter, who didn't speak to the media after the game.

SURPRISE, Ariz. - For Mike Scioscia , one question was enough. The Angels had just traded his son, in a headline-grabbing deal. They sent Matt Scioscia to the Chicago Cubs for Trevor Gretzky , son of Wayne Gretzky, the greatest player in hockey history. Scioscia offered a brief reaction to the trade on Thursday, after the Angels' 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals. "It's part of baseball," Scioscia said. "It's a good opportunity for Matt. " Scioscia cut off a follow-up question, about whether General Manager Jerry Dipoto had discussed the trade with the manager or simply informed him after its completion.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. and Russian presidents imposed sanctions on each other's top aides and other government officials Thursday as the dispute over Crimea intensified and the White House worried publicly that Moscow might be positioning its military to seize more of Ukraine. Denouncing Russia's annexation of Crimea, President Obama said the Treasury Department would freeze any U.S. assets of 20 prominent Russians - including several officials close to President Vladimir Putin, some of the country's wealthiest businessmen - and a Moscow bank that gives financial support to the Russian leadership.

Usually, it's Dustin Penner seeking to provide the creative response to a question. But when the former Ducks forward was pulled off the Honda Center ice March 4 and told by General Manager Bob Murray he'd been traded to the Washington Capitals, Penner did the asking: Why? "Cap room," Murray replied. Penner's reunion season with the Ducks ended in a deal for a fourth-round draft pick the Ducks then dealt to the Dallas Stars for defenseman Stephane Robidas . Penner and the Caps visit Anaheim on Tuesday night.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets pulled off a late offseason trade on Saturday that sent James Harden, Cole Aldrich, Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to the Houston Rockets for Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb and draft considerations. Harden was a major factor in knocking the Lakers out of the postseason last May. The move for the Thunder was more about economics than basketball.  The new collective-bargaining agreement includes increasingly punitive luxury taxes and Oklahoma City is already heavily invested in Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka.

The Lakers held pat at the trade deadline, sticking with their 14-man roster. With the deadline passing, the team will lose a pair of trade exceptions. The Lakers lose one for $854,000, gained when they traded Jason Kapono to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Ramon Sessions. Additionally, the $544,000 exception for Derek Fisher, traded to the Houston Rockets for Jordan Hill, will soon disappear from the books. Both trade exceptions don't technically expire until March 15, but they are unusable past the deadline.

Darren Sproles is coming off one of his least productive NFL seasons. But if he can bounce back in 2014, the Philadelphia Eagles may have gotten a huge bargain for the second of their two fifth-round draft picks this year. Sproles is headed to Philadelphia from New Orleans, where he spent the last three seasons after spending the first five of his career in San Diego. Although he's technically a running back, versatility is key to Sproles' game. In 2011, his first season with the Saints, Sproles led the league with 2,696 all-purpose yards - 603 rushing (with two touchdowns)

Herbalife Ltd. said Thursday a new U.S. probe of the nutritional products maker would not affect its sponsorship of the Galaxy and other teams and athletes. The company, whose business practices have been publicly attacked by a Wall Street investment manager, said Wednesday it now was the subject of a civil probe by the Federal Trade Commission but provided no other details. Money manager Bill Ackman has alleged Herbalife, whose nutrition and weight-management products are sold by independent salespeople, is effectively a pyramid scheme.
