{SPORTS VIEWPOINT} {Letters: Can we wait until next year for Dodgers?}

There may have been a good reason the Dodgers didn't wait to open the champagne.

October 24, 2009

Now I know why the Dodgers chose to hold their champagne bash after winning the division title, instead of waiting until they achieved something more meaningful. They must have had a gut reaction that this would be their only chance to indulge. Good call, Dodgers.

I would really like to root for the Dodgers again, because I've been mad at them since the days of Fred Claire and Kevin Malone and some of their ridiculous trades. At the present time, I can't, however.

When Manny's gone, I'll belong!

Never mind that every move Joe Torre made against the Phillies backfired and never mind that the Dodgers always seemed to be behind in the count before they came to bat; the real problem with the Dodgers is that management sets its sights too low.

Just as the Yankees and Red Sox dominate the American League, Los Angeles has the financial resources to be the same beast in the National League. Cliff Lee -- to the Dodgers, not Philadelphia. Roy Halladay -- make it happen.

Get the best team money can buy and win. That's what it takes today in modern baseball.

Everyone said the Phillies needed to find a bullpen to reach the World Series. They found George Sherrill and Jonathan Broxton just in time.

As a Mets fan living in L.A., I thank the Dodgers for making me feel at home.

Music fans had Milli Vanilli. Dodgers fans have Neddi Colletti.
