Before Tom Lasorda was roasted by the Friars Club the other night at the Beverly Hilton, he was questioned by reporters about a report that this might be his last year as Dodger manager. . . . "Nothing has changed," Lasorda said. "I feel great now. If I feel the same way next year and Peter O'Malley wants me back, I'll be back. If he thinks someone else can do a better job, fine. The decision will be his.". . . .

Really? An oversized, ugly mascot running around at Dodger Stadium [April 9]? The Dodgers have finally stooped this low? Maybe I'm glad I can't watch Dodgers games on TV anymore. At least I have Vinny for three innings on radio. Don't think I'll have to worry about him describing this latest lack of class. Mike Popov San Clemente ::: No, no, no, no and no. Listen carefully, Dodgers: Drop the "non-mascot" thingy, slowwwwwly back away, and nobody gets hurt. L.A. already has the world's greatest baseball fans, who adore the team, partly because it has never needed such obviously contrived marketing gimmicks to sell tickets or attract fans.

The decision to film two key scenes from "Star Trek" in the Dodger Stadium parking lot may not seem the logical choice, but that's just what visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett and director J.J. Abrams did. The drill platform scene with Kirk and Sulu battling Romulans high above planet Vulcan and the Delta Vega ice planet sequences were filmed there, on side-by-side sets over two weeks.

Re "Team dusts off an old way to stadium," April 4 With the new baseball season comes an old problem: congestion on the streets around Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers' new ownership is making significant investments in the team, stadium and community, and that's creating excitement for this season. The Dodgers want the best experience for fans and neighbors alike. Now it's time for the city to do its part and work with the team and the community to improve on the current traffic mess.

Raze Dodger Stadium (July 11)? That would be another loss of a true Angeleno gem. There is something magical about being so close to the city but feeling otherworldly when one is at Dodger Stadium. Placing a new stadium near the intersection of the 10 and 110 freeways is hardly inviting. Developer Alan Casden envisions much-needed homes near downtown. Yet housing in Los Angeles is and has always been an enduring problem -- bulldozing Dodger Stadium is not a solution. Seating can be amended, food can be improved, but once Dodger Stadium is gone, it will be gone forever both physically and emotionally.

In response to the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, the Los Angeles Police Department said there would be an increased security presence at and around Dodger Stadium on Monday night. The Dodgers are playing host to the San Diego Padres in the first game of a three-game series. “We believe Dodger Stadium has been a safe place,” officer Sally Nadera said. “This is to reassure the people that Dodger Stadium is safe.” Before the terrorist attack in Boston, the LAPD had no plans to increase security at the ballpark, according to Nadera.

The roster isn't the only thing getting an off-season makeover by the Dodgers. Dodger Stadium is busy with the sounds of construction as it undergoes the first of several possible modernizations. Team Chief Executive Stan Kasten said exact plans won't be announced until next month. He had originally planned to announce renovation plans a couple weeks after the season ended, but whether it was building permit issues or other uncertainties, he is now taking something of a wait-and-see approach.

There is not a whole lot about the Dodger Stadium renovation that the Dodgers haven't already discussed, so Tuesday's news conference mostly focused on the details. Which is probably good, because anyone who glanced out the Stadium Club windows at the construction going on and considered the big picture would have to wonder how it can possibly be completed in time for the Dodgers' March 28 exhibition game against the Angels. The giant holes inside each foul line remain open, and the stadium remains cut out to the loge level.

He was booed at Dodger Stadium and two days later wasn't even the most fawned over Paul in his own building. Whoever cued up the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love" inside Staples Center on Sunday might as well have been playing an ode to Chris Paul. The song was intended as a tribute to Paul McCartney, who rose from his seat across from the Clippers' bench in the first quarter of their 120-97 victory over the Lakers and obligingly danced when shown on the scoreboard. But there was certainly an undercurrent of truth to the words as they relate to the point guard, who somehow still irks giant swaths of a city simply because he plays for the Clippers instead of its beloved Lakers.

After moving into her home near Dodger Stadium in 1987, Lisa Keller learned to live with the gridlock. She scheduled her work hours to avoid the swarm of fans in blue T-shirts. And before long, she'd learned a guiding truth of her hilly neighborhood: If you don't have to leave your house on game days, don't. "It was really crazy," she said. "The sheer amount of traffic was really, just, annoying. " But in 1996, after the neighborhood successfully lobbied then-owner Peter O'Malley to shut the Scott Avenue gate, Keller said things in her mostly residential neighborhood west of the stadium improved a lot. Without an entry point, game traffic started to fade away and before long there was new game-day wisdom in the neighborhood: If you need to get into or out of the area, head to Scott Avenue.

More than 25,000 participants are expected to compete Sunday in the 29th annual L.A. Marathon. Defending men's champion Erick Mose of Kenya is among 16 competitors in the elite men's field. Ethiopia's Amane Gobena, who finished second in 2009, is among 10 elite women's competitors. Winners of the men's and women's races each receive $25,000. A $50,000 "challenge" bonus also will be awarded to the first runner to cross the finish line. The women will start 17 minutes 41 seconds ahead of the men, nearly a minute less than the 18:35 advantage of last year, when Belarus' Aleksandra Duliba finished 2:09 ahead of Mose.

Is Arte Moreno bluffing, or would he really move the Angels out of Anaheim? That has emerged as a pivotal question as the team and city try to negotiate a deal that would keep the Angels where they are. Moreno, the Angels' owner, met last month with officials in Tustin about a possible new ballpark there, and said talks with Anaheim officials were “at a stalemate.” Dan Barrett, a sports industry consultant advising the city,...

At the home he shares with his parents, Bryan Stow does his best, but he struggles. It's hard to move his left arm and that hand will barely close. He must wear a diaper, needs help to take a shower and has to be reminded why a plastic shunt juts from the base of his skull. The members of Stow's family who addressed a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Thursday wondered if the two men who attacked the paramedic and father of two outside Dodger Stadium in 2011 knew any of that, or if they cared.

The sister of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium in 2011, addressed his attackers in court Thursday, calling them "despicable" for not showing even a "tiny bit of remorse. " Marvin Norwood, 30, and Louie Sanchez, 31, faced charges of mayhem, assault and battery, and inflicting great bodily injury in the beating of Stow, a 44-year-old father of two. The March 31 attack left Stow, a Northern California paramedic, with serious head trauma and a permanent disability that means he will need care for the rest of his life.

Even with the guilty pleas from the two men who attacked Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium in 2011, the Stow family's legal battles are not done. The Dodgers stilll face a lawsuit filed by Stow and his family. The case, accusing the team's management of not adequately protecting fans, is set to go to trial by May. Attorney Tom Girardi said the cost of Stow's care already has topped $5 million. He estimated that it will cost an additional $34 million to tend to the victim for the rest of his life.
