    Dodgers-Angels series is so good, it deserves a repeat for the World
    The folks who occupy the dugouts were too busy staring at each other to admit it, their fans were too busy screaming at each other to acknowledge it, but by the time the four-game wrestling match between the Dodgers and Angels ended Thursday, everyone was...

    In Angels-Dodgers series, Fox trots away with TV viewing prize
    There is still a game to play in this high-profile, four-game Dodgers-Angels Freeway Series. But we already have a big winner. Fox Sports West. It's more than a sweep. It's a rout. It's Mike Tyson boxing a jockey, Secretariat racing a Clydesdale....

    Dodgers send clear message at deadline: the kids stay in the picture

    David Feherty's career is not just garden-variety
    TV star David Feherty isn't the most complicated man in the world, but he's in the conversation. He will turn 56 in two weeks, and the odds of that actually happening 10 years ago were not good. He was a pro golfer, yet another good linksman from...

    Dodgers TV 'blueout' a long way from end despite Congress' attention
    Lawmakers, having cured all else that ails us, have now turned their high beams on this Dodgers TV standoff. I suspect relief is just years away. Not that we don't applaud their efforts this week. First, they called on the Federal Communications...

    Old friends show up to praise new Lakers Coach Byron Scott
    Byron Scott's first news conference as Lakers coach was so much like a class reunion it was natural for the guests of honor to call each other by their old nicknames. Jamaal Wilkes was "Silk." Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was "Cap." Magic Johnson, conspicuous...
