The chair on which General Manager Ned Colletti sits, night after night, at Dodgers home games, once came with a very high temperature. Now, the hot seat is more like a throne.
Colletti has lasted, persevered. He has gone over Niagara Falls in a...

Clayton Kershaw won't pitch against the Boston Red Sox this weekend. Zack Greinke won't, either.

There hasn't been anything like this in Dodgers history, not only in this century but in the last one as well.
