    Rams' Case Keenum looks more like a starter than Jared Goff

    Competition? What competition? At the moment, the so-called position battle between Case Keenum and Jared Goff is about as competitive as Secretariat against the field at the Belmont Stakes. Or Mike Tyson’s 91-second blowout of Michael Spinks. Or a hammer against a nail. You get the idea. Two games...

    A Don Mattingly-Yasiel Puig reunion in Miami? Far-fetched, but it sure would be exciting

    Don Mattingly didn’t feel appreciated by the Dodgers. Yasiel Puig feels betrayed by them, as they suddenly decided to crack down on his behavior after years of looking the other way. What if they were to bury the hatchet to take down their common enemy? It probably won’t happen, but it’s fun to...

UCLA declared its hiring of Rick Neuheisel marked the end of USC’s monopoly of college football in the city. How did that work...

    A blister has hung up Rich Hill and the Dodgers

    The Dodgers have positioned themselves to overtake the San Francisco Giants for first place in the National League West, only to now have to stare at a giant finger that is suddenly in their faces. Specifically, Rich Hill’s middle finger. It’s as if the baseball gods are playing a cruel joke on...

    It's safety first at Rams' Family Day, and it sets the right tone

    You think of the Coliseum and the NFL and you don’t think family-friendly. You think of the Raiders. You think of punches thrown in the stands, kicks delivered in the parking lots. And that’s what made the Rams’ coming-out party Saturday a triumph — a minor triumph, but a triumph nonetheless. The...
