Dodgers in SI

I don't know how many of you still get Sports Illustrated, but I find it good workout / bathroom reading. Catching up on one issue (March 8, 2010), I noticed that the Dodgers were mentioned 3 times on one page. The "Scorecard Go Figure" section has:

0: Dollars in federal and state income taxes paid on $108 million in earnings by divorcing Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie McCourt from 2004 to '09, according to documents unsealed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

2: Pounds that Dodgers second baseman Ronnie Belliard must lose in spring training to get his weight down to 209 and activate his $825,000, one-year contract with Los Angeles.

Then in the "They Said It" section:

Ned Colletti, Dodgers general manager, on having seen free-agent Chien-Ming Wang throw only in a parking lot before the righthander signed with the Nationals: "He had good command, though. He didn't hit any cars or anything."

I hope these little tidbits aren't the only ways the Dodgers are going to make headlines this year.

Damn west coast media bias!

Ned and the scouts should keep their eyes on this crop of talent, especially given the rash of recent injuries. They have command! No parking lot or sidewalk misshaps that I can tell. It wouldn't be surprising to see one or two in future Dodger lineups.
