Players are more friendly since Magic Johnson took over the team.
The Padres want the umps to rule "Wha? Totally not fair, man!"
Amazing. I didn't know British people could throw.
"I can't say I'm happy this happened, considering I just paid $2 billion for the team," said Johnson. "But if it was going to happen, it's good it did now and not during the season when there are fans at the stadium. A lot of people would have been hurt."
An initial examination of the rubble shows that the upper deck appears to have been affixed to the lower deck with Scotch tape.
"Dodger Stadium is one of the oldest parks in baseball. It opened in 1962," said now former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. "It needed upkeep, but I simply didn't have the cash on hand to do it."
While admitting that much of the structural renovations of the stadium during his time as owner were done with tape designed for wrapping gifts or doing children's crafts, McCourt pointed out that much stronger materials were used, as well.
"I won't be painted as the bad guy here," he said, stepping through the rubble. "Look here on that support beam. That's duct tape. You ever try to unstick duct tape? It's pretty much impossible. I also personally went through seven containers of Elmer's keeping the press box on the stadium. If that's not up to code, then building codes are far too extreme."
Is FUPA a sabermetric statistic?
After the way their season went, a little bit of insanity can be expected.
They'd sign Chapter to an above-market contract.
2. Ethel Delvecchio, the Dodgers' Brooklyn born-and-raised aunt who stayed in the borough when the team moved in 1958, passed away in 2006 and unexpectedly left no inheritance. In fact, due to unscrupulous telemarketers who prey on the elderly, Aunt Ethel left a substantial credit card debt.
3. At the beginning of the 2009 season the Dodgers signed Manny Ramirez to a 2-year, $45 million contract. The deal also caused the team's health insurance costs to skyrocket, as they now had to cover Ramirez's expensive OB/GYN and prenatal care.
4. On September 14, 2007, the Dodgers hold Fan Appreciation Via Bags Stuffed Full of Cash Night. Due to better than projected attendance, the Dodgers give away $14.3 million in the promotion and fire their marketing director.
Another fine moment in the 2011 Dodgers season.
