Los Angeles Baseball . . . .

. . . .is in the news again. Joe Torre is going to manage the Dodgers next season and the local media is all agog. Um, O.K., that's nice. But can he hit? Or pitch? How's he at third base? You can count the Dodgers' 300+ hitters on one hand. And is there a less intimidating pitching staff in the league? A good manager is a great asset, no doubt. But, c'mon folks. He needs something manage if we're going to think "World Series".

And speaking of which I only looked in on it occasionally this year. It could really be enjoyed only by the dyed-in-the-wool Red Sox fan or by those who enjoy seeing kittens and puppies tormented.

Sometimes you really had to look away.
