"It's hard to compare anybody that was as good as Kersh," the Dodgers manager said Thursday. "Kersh, at this point, is just different. The guys I've seen, it's hard to say anybody's better than that guy."

  • "Dodgers must continue to compete: Mattingly deserves to have option picked up but the team can't let up now," via Ramona Shelburne at ESPN.
"It was definitely us kind of saying to each other, 'We're going to lose a good man here because of our failures,' " Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "We can't use our health as an excuse. Whoever is in the room, whatever 25-man roster we have, it's up to them to step up and not just save our manager, but save our season. He shouldn't ever be a fall guy for our mistakes. He's been the same consistent person since I met him back in 2008. He's always optimistic, always looking for the good in people, never negative. If you can't play for that, you can't play for anybody."
Before Bo Jackson, there was Drungo LaRue Hazewood. A two-sport star in high school so athletically gifted that USC wanted to make him their starting tailback, and the Baltimore Orioles made him their first round pick in 1977.
  • I'm not sure if this is a joke, or what.  Topps made this recent announcement.
