Welcome to an abbreviated version of “Painting The Corner” coming out of Monday’s action. The name of the game is health. It’s late-April, and that means that the injuries are starting to pile up. Several big stars left their respective games on Monday, and fantasy owners welcomed a new hero to the fold in Los […]

Legendary actor and Hollywood heavyweight Harrison Ford stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE” on Wednesday night, the latest stop in his promotional tour in support of 42. As I have written extensively on the Dome, I enjoyed and was moved by Ford’s portrayal of Branch Rickey in the film. He spoke with Kimmel for several segments, […]

Last night, I sat quietly to review the day’s activities, catch up on the latest news from Boston and to find some peace. I found several reasons to go upstairs to my office (the forgotten notepad, Sharpie, headphones, etc.), a path that forced me past my sleeping children. Both were sound asleep with, maybe just […]

For the past two weeks, we (sports media and sports fans) have spent countless hours on-air, online and in our local watering holes debating what is deemed to be “proper” conduct for coaches in the wake of the Rutgers practice footage. Was Rutgers right to fire him? Should the outcry from the media, the Twitterverse […]

On Monday, baseball fans celebrated the rebirth of their beloved sport. Our own Jay Mohr painted a perfect picture of our relationship with the game on “Jay Mohr Sports” live from Dodger Stadium.

The first game of the 2013 Major League Baseball season was played on Sunday night. Everyone’s favorite punching bag, the Houston Astros, defeated the Texas Rangers by a count of 8-2. The number of “take a picture of the standings” Tweets that I read was positively astounding. Those Tweets were immediately followed by a barrage […]

Mark McGwire is headed home. The southern California native returned home by signing a deal to become the new hitting coach of the Dodgers. Before he was a member of the U.S. Olympic team or smashing home runs alongside Jose Canseco in Oakland, McGwire was dominating at USC. He’s back to lead the retooled Dodgers […]

My jaw almost dropped when I saw the dollar sign on the deal. The long-awaited sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers has been finalized. The price tag is reportedly in the neighborhood of $2 billion. That’s right. I’ll capitalize the B. Fans across Los Angeles celebrated when it was announced late Tuesday night that the […]

Mark Cuban, still basking in the glory of the Dallas Mavericks’ NBA Championship, joined TMZ Live to talk about the euphoria and the elephant in the room … Will he jump into the mix and buy the Dodgers if they’re put up for sale? Shawn Marion jumps into the fray as well. Mark Cuban on […]

I couldn’t help but chuckle when I read the latest comments from Manny Ramirez about possible retirement, his status with the Dodgers and “having fun.” Ned Colletti joined the “Petros & Money” show on KLAC/FOX Sports Radio on Monday afternoon and kind of dismissed the notion of Ramirez’s relocation plans for 2011. To paraphrase, Colletti […]
