[ laughter ] we view this as an opportunity. i can tell you that it would have been very hard too acquire all three of these guys had this not been the case. sonny was a great player, but at this point, we need a lot of great players. and i think there's a talent that exists right now and the way to acquire multiple good players is to trade some of the good players you currently have. >> you've been trading all the good players for years. the a's traded utility infielder adam rosales to the diamondbacks. he started only 19 of the last 56 games. the giants made no moves at the trade deadline. they could deal johnny cueto if he gets healthy next month.
these two teams, both occupy last place. their combined record is 86-125. but you know what? always fun when orange and black face green and gold. >> it's always great. a lot of interest. we just left a big series that also did that. so a lot of pride involved here. this is always a lot of fun. i know melvin and i have a lot of fun competing against each other. >> it's just very fun to compete against your fellow bay area team. it's great for the fans and it's been a big part of my life growing up here too. >> longest tenured athletic at this point. a grand jury has declined to indict gary conley over rape allegations dating back to april. the raiders said they did their own investigation before selecting the star corner back out of ohio state. he was captain of the buckeyes last season.
his draft stock took a hit as a result of the investigation. the grand jury returned a no bill on all possible charges. and he feels he's now vindicated. >> i'm excited. it's tough on a young man like that to go through this. i'm excited for him and the raiders, for the process to work. and we're excited and now we can move forward. finally, the kids chanting "dunk it, dunk it," jason richardson throws it down with authority! he's not playing anymore, but still has hops at age 36. just decided they're chanting, that's what i do. >> thanks, larry. >> join us tonight at 9:00 on channel 13. new video coming in from hawaii where a liver of lava is spilling into the ocean. but the biggest concern here is
not the heat. and then at 11:00, flames at a north bay school. why first responders say this fire could have been much worse. >> see you tonight for that. that is this edition of "abc7 news." look for breaking news on twitter and abc7news.com. >> for all of us here, thank you for joining us. >> see you at 9:00 and 11:00. one laugh, and hello sensitive bladder. so i tried always discreet. i didn't think protection this thin could work. but the super absorbent core turns liquid to gel. snap! so it's out of sight... ...and out of mind. always discreet. for bladder leaks. they carry your fans shpassions, hopes, and dreams.s. and maybe, a chance at greatness because shoulders were made for greatness.
