Rounding third and heading for...

Despite some wailing and woe is the fortunes of the Dodgers hand-wringing by an L.A. Times sports columnist in today's paper, the team is still in first place, right where it has been most of the season. The Colorado Rockies made a run at L.A. about two weeks ago but could get no closer than 2 1/2 games. The Dodgers still lead by 3 1/2 and have the schedule in their favor, with games against the lowly Pirates and Nationals coming up.
And to add to their good luck, the Dodgers finish the regular season with three games against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. They also had the return of starter Hiroki Kuroda, who had been on the disabled list after he was hit in the head by a line drive in Arizona. Kuroda could be the Dodgers most reliable pitcher down the stretch against the Giants and the Rockies.


Media note: If there is a better college football broadcast team than Fox's Barry Tomkins and Petros Papadakis, the Feed would like to hear it. Tomkins and Papadakis have been doing West Coast games for several years now, especially Pacific-10 contests. They are smooth, knowledgeable and their voices are easy to recognize. Tomkins' play-by-play calling is nearly flawless, and having the excitable Papadakis as a color commentator works well with his easy manner.
