With his oversized beard, tattoo-covered arms and bizarre persona, Brian Wilson was made for Hollywood. He just couldn't get enough hitters out.

Things should get busy for the Dodgers, and other teams, the next two days. And in some cases, more interesting.

Once more into the breach, dear Dodgers faithful.

Juan Uribe couldn't wait for the moment to come. Brian Wilson couldn't wait for it to be over. As for Josh Beckett, he didn't understand the magnitude of what he was about to accomplish.
