    The Arizona Diamondbacks fired Manager Kirk Gibson on Friday, one day after hiring Dave Stewart as their new general manager. The decision to fire Gibson -- and bench coach Alan Trammell -- was announced not by Stewart but by Tony La Russa, the...
  • Media banned -- banned I say! -- from today's Dodgers workout

    Do Dodgers have the postseason's deepest lineup?
    Think it’s just a repeat, same ol' Dodgers, same ol' Cardinals? Just saw this movie last fall? Had a rather disappointing ending. If the Dodgers mostly appear the same lineup as they had last postseason, the one the Cardinals dispatched in six...
  • Cardinals rally against Clayton Kershaw to stun Dodgers, 10-9

    Cardinals rally against Clayton Kershaw to stun Dodgers, 10-9
    It was such a nice little dream for the Dodgers. The timely hitting, Clayton Kershaw dominating, the jumping out to a five-run lead. And then came the other kind of dream, the nightmare variety. The kind that haunt and linger, and if a team’s...
