    Harvard-Westlake's Jack Flaherty is The Times' baseball player of the year

    When Long brothers go head to head, Mom and Dad will be watching
    Diane Long will sit in an Edward Jones Dome luxury box Sunday, binoculars lifted to her eyes, her focus trained on the line of scrimmage. She won't be following the football much when the St. Louis Rams play host to the Chicago Bears. For four quarters,...
  • Dodgers know what Matt Kemp is capable of, and should keep him

    Dodgers know what Matt Kemp is capable of, and should keep him

  • Angels let a great person get away by trading Mark Trumbo

    Angels let a great person get away by trading Mark Trumbo
    Mark Trumbo was traded Tuesday. He went from being an Angel to a Diamondback. If we are talking personality only, the previous name suited him better. There is nothing venomous, nor ever will be, about Trumbo. He took the trade the way he takes...
  • Dodgers' successes seem sweeter after their early struggles

     Dodgers' successes seem sweeter after their early struggles

  • It's always sunny in Los Angeles for the Dodgers

    It's always sunny in Los Angeles for the Dodgers
    They are "Ruthless People," these Dodgers. Nasty enough to "Throw Momma From The Train." So relentless you would think they were "Twins." Good enough, even, to provide one more starring role for Danny DeVito. It happened earlier this week at Chavez...
  • Albert Pujols, that suit would fit a sport's needs

     Albert Pujols, that suit would fit a sport's needs
    Albert Pujols needs to come through in the clutch, and we're not talking home runs or RBIs here. Pujols needs to pursue his lawsuit against Jack Clark. Call it slander. Call it defamation of character. But don't call it off. Last week, Pujols was...
  • Dodgers' wins are the real thing

    Dodgers' wins are the real thing
    This is real. To those sitting in Dodger Stadium late Wednesday night as another comeback victory filled the joint with a dizzying chill, the conclusion was inescapable. For those who kicked over their long-empty plastic cups and nacho trays when...
  • In Dodgers' waltz, Yasiel Puig's missteps are quite noticeable

    In Dodgers' waltz, Yasiel Puig's missteps are quite noticeable
    The Dodgers play very good baseball. Wednesday, they also did some pretty nifty dance steps. Call it the Yasiel Puig two-step. On a day when Ricky Nolasco pitched his second straight gem, the Dodgers beat the Cubs, 4-0, Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier...
