A Trip Around The Bases

There's a lot going on around Southern California baseball right now, maybe the most important of which, Nick talks about below.

But Mr. Gagne's injury isn't the only thing of importance, no matter how many starting pitchers the Dodgers trade for now. (And don't think as a sports fan I've forgotten about Phil's return to the Lake show. Seriously, though, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who thinks about the Lakers' new (old?) coach through the prism of the baseball diamond.

The first non-Gagne related news still pertains to the Dodgers. And a former starter -- now Royal -- who singlehandedly energized Dodgers Stadium during last year's playoff series.

His name is, of course, Jose Lima. He of the infamous "It's Lima Time! quote (followed by a gratuitous crotch gesture), which copy editors across the Southland had fun with after his victory over the Dodgers last night:

There was also great coverage of the Brendan Donnelly glove incident -- where the real fireworks took place when the managers took the field in a full-on argument -- and exiled Angel Jose Guillen took part in, let's call it, some extracurriculars.

Finally, in an obligatory look down south, the Padres' can't seem to catch a break. Ugh!
