THE BEST TEAM MONEY CAN BUY

kirkusreviews.com — A searching portrait of the Los Angeles Dodgers' 2013 season, from ESPN Magazine writer Knight. When the Guggenheim Partners purchased the Dodgers in mid-2012, they paid $2.15 billion for a fixer-upper ball club with a ramshackle stadium to match, its concrete bones as osteoporotic as those of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.

5 things MLB can learn from Nippon Professional Baseball.

sportsonearth.com — TOKYO -- If you're a baseball fan with an Internet connection, you've undoubtedly read scary stories about how the sport's popularity in the U.S. is circling the drain. And while reports of Major League Baseball's imminent demise are greatly exaggerated, it's true that younger viewers with waning attention spans may be gravitating toward faster-paced, flashier sports where celebrating individual success is encouraged, not greeted with fastballs to the ear.

Jimmy Jams Johnson pitches a perfect ninth to nail down 1-0 victory. Zack Greinke is good. Dodgers sweep Reds.

@joshgeller2 also, there's really no need to be nasty. Please consider the mean spiritedness of tweets like this before you send.

@urbuddyhaysoos @joshgeller2 if fans are mad about Utley playing over Joc they should scream at FO-- not Mattingly.

Aug 27, 2015

@urbuddyhaysoos @joshgeller2 yes. Exactly. They traded for Utley so they could move Hernandez to center to play over Joc.

Aug 27, 2015

@joshgeller2 I AM a stat head. My issue is with people who think the FO has nothing to do with lineup and just blame Mattingly

Aug 27, 2015

@DanielBrim @BillShaikin @mike_petriello @truebluela they tried Joc there and he was not good. It's not that simple. I'd hit Hernandez there
