Dylan Hernandez’s cocky and sarcastic commentary on the Dodgers’ playoff prospects, given their current starting pitching, made for boring reading, to say the least. Hernandez almost seems to suggest that Andrew Friedman and the Dodgers deliberately gutted their starting pitchers to show how smart they are. It’s true that they didn’t trade many prospects at the deadline for “brand name” starters, but many of the clubs that did (Angels & Rangers, anyone?) are already regretting their decisions. So the Dodgers will do what they usually do as well or better than anyone else: maximize what they have instead of complaining about what they don’t have.

As much as it pains me to admit it, I have to agree with Dylan Hernandez. The Dodgers can’t win the World Series without a big horse that can pitch. They need that guy they can go out with every 3 or 4 days and put in a lot of effort. If you look back, most teams that won the World Series had a player that was able to put in a Herculean effort to make the playoffs.

The Dodgers will be eliminated in the first round of the playoffs due to their inept pitching staff. The last team Shohei Ohtani would want to go to would be the Dodgers. If all the “experts” are right about him wanting to join a World Series champion team, will he join Atlanta?

Problems at Dodger Stadium

In my opinion, alcohol is the reason for most of the violence at Dodger Stadium. We have stopped attending Dodger games because of drunk fans and the threat of violence.

In the past only beer was sold in the stadium. Today, Dodger Stadium is basically a sports bar with a ball game in the background. Alcohol is sold every few meters on the forecourts and alcohol sales are not regulated. A fan can get as drunk as he wants. Fans arrive at the game drunk and continue drinking. I’ve seen people so drunk they can barely walk.

Reduce the sale of alcohol and you will reduce violence. But who thinks that will happen?

I was shocked and saddened to read the headline in Sunday’s Times about the poor reputation of our beloved Dodger Stadium. The sad thing is, as a fan who has attended games since 1966, I was part of the problem myself. I too got into a fight in the parking lot after the game in the late ’70s when the Reds were in the Western Division. I suffered a concussion. The common denominator in my struggle (besides stupidity) was ALCOHOL!! Unfortunately, it is a cash cow at almost every sporting venue, so it will never be eliminated. By the way, I no longer consume alcohol at any sporting event I attend!!

How about those Rams?

It appears the so-called NFL experts were wrong about the Rams last week in Seattle. With Matthew Stafford now injury-free and returning to his Super Bowl form, and Puka Nacua doing his best Cooper Kupp impression, our Rams will surely be in the playoff race.

Cargo management

The NBA should not talk about its new “load management” policy. Just one day after announcing their new policy, the networks announced their new deal with the NBA, which included each team’s “stars” playing basically every game. In other words, thanks to the networks for making teams do what they should have done on their own: play against players. Credit where credit is due.

Commissioner of what? It was nice to see NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sitting with Michael Vick at the Eagles game; We hope to see you with OJ Simpson at the next Bills game.

I happen to have Prime Video, but I’m guessing many, and maybe most, NFL fans don’t. Roger Goodell gives them the middle finger, in exchange for what? Even more money? As if the NFL needs it?

I just found out that Alex Rodriguez ratted out Manny Ramirez regarding performance-enhancing drug use. FOX and ESPN should cut ties with A-Rod now!!

Giving a legend his due

A great article by Steve Henson on Eddie Meador. Growing up in Los Angeles in the ’50s and watching my first professional football game at the Coliseum, I won’t forget those stars, like Norm Van Brocklin, Elroy Hirsch, Jon Arnett, Les Richter and, of course, the little guy but I really appreciated to Meador. In today’s game, the art of tackling in the open field is a thing of the past. Meador stood out as singularly the best I’ve seen to date. The fact that he’s not in the Hall of Fame is hard to fathom. His career and his numbers stand the test of time. Today they give inductions like Schrafft’s mints. Please give Eddie the respect and recognition he deserves.
