Well, goodness gracious. I am tickled pink.
Bill Shaikin of the LA Times announced some news this evening that I'm sure many Dodger fans have been hoping to hear all season.

We get another year of bliss.
An official announcement should be coming tomorrow. Per Shaikin at the LA Times:
"It has been such an exciting, enjoyable, wonderful season — the big crowds in the ballpark, everybody is talking about the ballclub, and I really respect, admire and love the management — so everything just fell into place," Scully said.Thank you, Vin.
"I really still enjoy it immensely. My health is good, thank God. So why not? And my wife said, 'Why not?' as well.
"Just the thought of walking away from it to retirement — and looking out the window or something? It's just too good. As a baseball man, and someone who has always loved the game, the situation and the conditions are perfect."
