L.A. is now officially Philadelphia West, as the mismanaged Lakers fight the 76ers for the first pick in the NBA draft and the small-minded, small-market Dodgers brass seems to be rivaling the Phillies and aiming for the first pick in baseball's amateur draft. Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi seem more interested in having the Dodgers' farm system rated No. 1 than in having the major league club win a World Series.
OK, next year is out. That means the Dodgers are closing in on 30 years without winning the World Series. Most fans still can't see the Dodgers on TV and can't afford to take their families to games. How many seasons will it...
