char: What do you predict for Trojan Football?
Amir: is there anyway to search for articles that are from 2000, 20001? your archive goes back like a month?
Administrator2: Hey Amir, we're working all the time to improve search on Latimes.com. We have made some improvements in the past weeks so you might want to try searching for Bill's articles again.
Bill Plaschke: char, trojans will be as good as ever..it all depends on the quarterback...sanchez or mustain..
Hard Rock: So very little to offer on Dodgertown - nostalgia is a tricky thing - I think most Dodgers fans really appreciate the nostalgia of Vero Beach and link to Brooklyn days - but we don't have to stay there, just visit. Don't you think you missed that angle in 2/10 column?
ItzClockwork: We need you to hype up the Dodgers on ATH. Tired of the East Coast Bias on ESPN
Bill Plaschke: hard rock, I've spent parts of 20 years in vero, and rarely seen an l.a. fan there...that was my angle..
ahj: bill do you think the aquisition of andruw jones is enough to make l.a. a contender?
josh: how can andrew jones come to camp overweight? Shouldnt he want to be in shape put him self in the position to make more dough?
doris: if you havent' been to dodgertown, you are missing a wonderful place
Bill Plaschke: itz, I can only hype dodgers if they hype themselves.
Bill Plaschke: I know jones is heavier, but I don't know how he plays..somebody said he is more muscular...I'll guess we'll find out..
Hard Rock: Bill - mostly Brooklyn fans - point being, it's the last vestage of the east coast Dodgers. Think you missed that in your diatribe on costs and convenience . . .
GF: So you actually think that the Lakers don't win it all???
char: Keep up the good work Bill, I really look forward to reading your columns, especially the human interest stories, like Ricky Rosas.
Bill Plaschke: but hard rock, being in l.a., we don't really care about east coast dodgers...dodgers stopped being a national team when o'malley sold them.
Bill Plaschke: thanks, char..
TaintMe: Hey Amir, check out Bill's book from a few years ago for some great older articles...you can get it on amazon...brilliantly titled, "Plaschke" ;-) It really is a great read!
ItzClockwork: Liked your article on Matt offer to buy Matt Kemp lunch? League minimum has to be twice as much money as Plaschke makes.
