"I feel stronger," Lasorda said Thursday night in his first public appearance since suffering what the Dodgers called a "mild" heart attack last week in New York. Lasorda said doctors discovered one of his arteries was 90% blocked.

From the outside, he looks like the same old Kemp: a guy whose talent is as raw as his composure is unformed, beguiling fans with the preternatural ability he doesn't care to hone.

  • Bob Lemke tells a little more about the history of Berk Ross Baseball cards from the early 50's.
  • You can follow The Stanley Cup online this summer.  Find out how from Rich Hammond at LA Kings Insider.  BTW, I hear it is currently in Las Vegas.
  • This is something I had totally forgotten about.  Before the season started, the Kings (Luc Robitaille and Bailey) placed 3 "lucky pennies" at center ice in the Staples Center.  Bailey, the Kings mascot, put up a pic on twitter of those pennies being removed.  One from 1893- the year the Stanley Cup was donated; a second from 1993- the year the Kings were last in the Finals, but lost; and the last penny was from 2002- the year Luc won The Cup as a member of the Red Wings.  UPDATE:  Strike that.  Rich Hammond on the LA Kings Insider blog notes that one of the pennies was from 2006- the year Bailey's beloved Colt won the Super Bowl.
