I am supposed to be resting after a trying week of golf in the Lake Tahoe area.
But my blood is boiling, the Dodgers are infuriating and so why do we let our youngsters watch baseball?
I begin with Monday night. I like listening to Vin Scully. He...

And then on Wednesday, all was calm. No hit batters, no ejections, no bubbling testosterone.
There was just a pretty decent baseball game, ultimately won 8-6 in 12 innings by the Diamondbacks before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 41,927.

Ronald Belisario returns Saturday from his one-game suspension, and that’s a good thing, right?
It could be very good. Or it could be nothing but trouble.
Belisario has been wildly inconsistent this season. He’s had both horrific and...

The Dodgers won in walk-off fashion. And believe it or not, Yasiel Puig had nothing to do with the late-game heroics.
He was standing in the on-deck circle as Juan Uribe stood at the plate with runners on the corners and one out. Braves reliever Anthony...

It has been a tough season so far for Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly. His team is underperforming, his contract runs out at the end of the season, and upper management hasn't exactly given him a lot of glowing endorsements publicly.

Give the Dodgers a moment for it to soak in, to refresh memories. It has been awhile.
The Dodgers lost a lead, rallied to regain it and then even built upon it a tad. All around a little Matt Kemp drama.
After losing a 3-1 lead almost solely...

The Dodgers are rolling now. Hey, when you’re coming off an eight-game losing streak, you embrace anything resembling positive momentum.
That ripple of momentum arrived on a warm Sunday afternoon when the Dodgers downed the Miami Marlins, 5-3,...

The new Dodgers owners, it turns out, jazzed up every corner of Dodger Stadium but one.
The concourses are brighter, the restrooms cleaner, the entertainment snappier. There's still one area, however, that feels wholly unfinished, an inherited...

Oh, good, it's time for that annual ritual in which the Dodgers attempt to appease those unfortunate ticketholders who spend one inning trying to park and two innings trying to buy a hot dog.
OK, so they're attempting to appease everyone, which is why...

The Dodgers have turned a lot of things around of late, and what led to which is fun speculation, if still chicken-or-egg material.
The Dodgers are winning like crazy right now and plenty of different components have gone into that, but no shortage of...

There are some things that can be bought.
A space flight. The chance to be cryogenically frozen. Or maybe just some of the simpler things, like a 12-cylinder Ferrari Testarossa, beachfront property in Turks and Caicos or one of the socks Curt...
