Laker-mania? It’s A Little Early For Me

September 30, 2010

The Lakers are the kings of Southern California sports. I don’t question that. A long time ago the Rams were. Then the Dodgers took over. But now it’s Kobe and friends reigning over all. It’s not even close anymore, thanks to our favorite feuding couple of the moment, the McCourts. But even given the clear […]

Angels: Who Stays and Who Goes?

September 29, 2010

As the most interesting offseason of the Arte Moreno regime approaches, it’s time to take a look at the Angels on the bubble. Who will stay and who will go? Here’s a quick look at the way I think it is coming down: JUAN RIVERA — They owe him $5.2 million for 2011, but do […]

It’s All Opinions Day

September 28, 2010

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine: Isn’t it time the Angels admit they were fleeced in the Scott Kazmir deal? They still owe this guy a staggering $28 million and he isn’t even good enough to be their fifth starter next season . . . Here’s my question: Who scouted Kazmir before […]

The Adenhart Verdict: A Pall Remains

September 27, 2010

We now know the man whose drunk driving resulted in the death of Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and his two friends and the serious injury of a third has been found guilty of three counts of second degree murder. We also know it is a relief to many friends and family members who felt the […]

Bruins, Trojans: A New View

September 26, 2010

Funny how quickly things can change in college football, huh? A week ago, USC was 3-0 and, if not exactly building momentum, at least winning games it was supposed to win. And UCLA was 1-2 and, according to most people, headed to Texas to be barbecued by the highly-ranked Longhorns. Well, here we are, a […]

Time For Some Pac-10 Answers

September 23, 2010

It is time for college football to get into the meaty part of its schedule, and that means we should start to get answers to some of the big Pac-10 biggest questions. Such as: 1. Just how good IS Oregon? Are the Ducks as overpowering as they’ve looked, outpointing three teams 189-3? Or is it […]

Bruins Getting Texas At Right Time

September 22, 2010

This is not meant to get UCLA football fans overly excited, or anything. But the Bruins are about to get powerhouse Texas at just the right time. Yes, the Longhorns are still somewhere way up in the stratosphere of the national polls. They still have more four and five-star recruits than some conferences, let alone […]

It’s All Opinions Day

September 21, 2010

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine: The bat shard that speared Cubs rookie Tyler Colvin sending him to the hospital should be a huge warning sign to ban the easily breakable maple bats, but already major league baseball says it won’t happen . . . You know when it will happen? When […]

Angels’ Mystery: Where Is Trumbo?

September 21, 2010

It has been the only mystery left in an otherwise sagging Angels’ season. Where is Mark Trumbo? The best power-hitting prospect in the organization was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake City at the start of the month along with teammate Hank Conger. But while Conger has started a few games behind the plate and […]

Bruins Were More Impressive Than Trojans

September 19, 2010

This hasn’t happened many times in the past 10 years, so when it actually does occur, it has to be pointed out. Are you ready? UCLA’s football team was more impressive than USC’s on Saturday. That’s right, the Bruins were better, playing more consistently on both sides of the ball, taking control of the game […]
