Dodgers none too happy with Russell Martin

As if they didn't have enough to worry about these days -- what with Manny Ramirez plotting an exit strategy out of L.A., and an embarrassing ownership divorce playing out in public -- the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday found out they will likely be without starting catcher Russell Martin...

In case you missed it...

Two news items that had nothing to do with league championship series raised my eyebrows, the first was the hiring of White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen to be a Fox studio analyst. The second was the news that former MLBPA head Donald Fehr is being given an $11 million severance package.

What is Going on With NLCS Rotations?

While the ALCS debate has devolved into the merits (or lack thereof) of a three-man rotation from the Yankees, the decisions behind the NLCS's matchups have spiraled completely out of control.

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

Here's a hint: Dodgers pitcher Jon Garland, looking dejected on the mound, was pitching to the Padres. Here's a much bigger, slap-yourself-in-the-forehead hint: Those video boards don't have a "K" and a bunch of zeroes.

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

We've always been skeptics of Dodgers Manager Joe Torre's mandatory hair cut policy, but clearly his appetite for short hair has waned since Manny Ramirez arrived on the scene last year. The slugger's dreadlocks have gotten so out of hand that, as you can see on this recent swing against the Padres, they often can get in the way of his actual vision. Now, we're not optometrists or professional baseball players, but this seems a bit counteractive to us. Just a thought. Maybe a trim would help Manny snap out of his recent power slump?

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

Evidently this is what it looks like when you're managing a team headed to the playoffs, and one of your key relievers gets decked by a line drive. That's what happened to the Dodgers' Charlie Haeger moments before Joe Torre trudged back to the dugout with his head in his hand. Just imagine what he'd look like if L.A. was trailing Colorado in the NL West!
