It's for a 3.4 acre parcel of land that has no access, other than through a neighbors back yard. I believe it is located across the street from Dodgertown, on the opposite side of 43rd Avenue.
  • per John Heyman at SI, Ron Burkle, thought to be a major financial backer of Garvey's bid to buy the Dodgers, may not actually be in Steve's court.
  • Are you kidding me? An $80 hot dog? Via Huffington Post.
    (It) is deep fried and rolled in truffle oil, then coated with porcini dust, sprinkled with white truffle shavings, and topped with dollops of creme fraiche, caviar and fresh roe.
  • The Dodgers honored Tim Wallach recently as he entered into the College Baseball Hall of Fame this year.
