    Chris Withrow pitching like someone who doesn't want to go back down
    When do some really good baseball numbers still manage to come out looking bad? When they belong to Chris Withrow. Withrow has picked up where he left off last year in his rookie season, which was just shy of brilliant. The hard-throwing young right-...

  • With Brian Wilson's return, Dodgers need a way to keep Chris Withrow

    That hurts. Not sure what, but something. Something bothersome enough to land a reliever on the disabled list. Chris Withrow has been one the Dodgers’ best and most valuable relievers this season. In his first six appearances (seven innings) he&...

    Kenley Jansen and Dodgers' bullpen getting worrisome workload

  • Letters: Finishing off the Lakers

    Letters: Finishing off the Lakers
    Why is L.A. so upset with Mike D'Antoni and Lakers management? We all knew this was a patchwork team that had no chance of actually winning anything this year. Myopic Lakers fans should cheer D'Antoni for not bailing on this squad, and praise Pau Gasol...
  • Dodgers bullpen stumbles in 3-2 loss to Giants
