- Hey. At least the Dodgers farm club in Ogden is playing well. They are in the finals. Per Sam Dykstra in a MiLB report.
"It feels to great to win this," said Smith, the Dodgers' 12th-round pick in the 2012 Draft. "This is something we've all been working towards since we got here. After winning both divisions this year, this was what we all thought we'd be capable of. Every time we stepped on the field, it was to work toward the opportunity to play for the league title."
- Bob Timmerman is writing at Dodger Thoughts and points to the inadequacy of the Dodgers to finish the job.
- Mark Saxon at ESPN shares a great quote from Andre Ethier that expresses the Dodgers troubles.
"I don't know if it's pressing too hard or not caring enough or what," Andre Ethier said. "You try to go out there and relax, it doesn't work. You try to go out there and care, and nothing works. Maybe somebody needs to come on and give us all a good shake or something. I don't know."

That's according to minority Dodgers owner and renowned film producer Peter Guber, who said his experience in the business of media entertainment and sports have taught him assembling star power does not guarantee success at the box office or the standings.
Guber, who was at AT&T Park on Friday for the start of a crucial series with the Giants, cited "Bonfire of the Vanities," a 1990 cinematic flop he produced, as an example of a talented lineup that included Bruce Willis, Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman.
