The family of Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan brutally beaten at Dodger Stadium in 2011, spoke out Thursday against the fatal stabbing of a Dodgers fan in San Francisco, calling the death "senseless. " "We are saddened by this senseless killing and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim's family," Bonnie Stow, Bryan Stow's sister, told the Los Angeles Times. San Francisco police said Jonathan Denver, 24, of Fort Bragg, Calif., was wearing Dodgers gear when he and another person were attacked about 11:40 p.m. Wednesday.

  There have been a lot of highly charged opinions expressed about the Dodgers' celebration of their victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday. The win gave the Dodgers the NL West title, and, considering the horrible start the Dodgers got off to this season, it seemed to make them release a lot of pent-up emotion. Many Diamondbacks fans are criticizing the team for running out onto the field and jumping into the swimming pool the Diamondbacks have just beyond the right-field fence.

In almost unbelievable news for Dodger fans, Koufax and Drysdale are back. Funny thing, they changed their names to Kershaw and Greinke. Cecil Worthington Los Angeles :: While I'm as thrilled as anyone at the return of Vin Scully next year for his 65th season as a Dodgers announcer, I think it's time management took a serious look at finding and grooming his replacement. We don't need a Scully clone, but at least an announcer who doesn't announce every play as if it were the ninth inning with two outs, a la Eric Collins, or announce the game as if you were sitting next to him, a la Charley Steiner.

Drew James guesses he went to a total of five Dodgers games in the last five years. This season, the Hollywood resident has been to six games, bought two Dodgers jerseys and gathered with friends at bars to root for Los Angeles' red-hot baseball team. Struck by Dodgers fever, James and many other Southern Californians are generating extra and unexpected sales business for Southland restaurants, sports bars and apparel shops. "Demand just shot through the roof," said Coby Goodman, owner of Los Feliz sporting goods shop Bling Circus.

Even the warmest of stories can have the saddest of endings, and so it is with Joshua Jones, the fatally ill young fan befriended so memorably by Matt Kemp last May. Jones is the 19-year-old Dodgers fan Kemp gave his cap, jersey and cleats to after making the final out in a Dodgers loss at AT&T Park. It was heartwarming, even touching Giants fans. Then, three weeks later, Kemp flew Jones and his family to Los Angeles for a game at Dodger Stadium, bringing them on the field to meet teammates.

Hanley Ramirez's injured right shoulder continued to improve Tuesday and the shortstop's status was "pretty much day to day," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. "As long as he keeps going forward like this" in his recovery, "there won't be an MRI" exam needed, Mattingly said, adding that could change "if he stalls and all of a sudden he's not getting better. " "We're basing a lot of this off of, obviously, the way he's feeling, the way he's moving his arm," Mattingly said.

Some trade deadline. Seen more movement in a three-toed sloth race. Maybe the word deadline was lost on the GMs this year. The Dodgers, who left all of baseball trembling last year with a series of audacious trades, were oddly silent. Unless you count that Earth-shattering, last-second deal to acquire Drew Butera. What, no bells go off? He was a triple-A catcher for the Minnesota Twins. Currently batting .229 for the Rochester Red Wings. Also, he's 29. Fear not, Dodgers faithful, the deadline still was not completely devoid of intrigue.

As the sports world is learning with every jaw-dropping win, these suddenly delightful Dodgers are a team of many faces. They include Yasiel Puig's giant look of wonder, Juan Uribe's impish grin, A.J. Ellis' grimace, Clayton Kershaw's scowl, and occasionally even Don Mattingly's smile. Then there is The Stare. It's solid, expressionless, powerful in its confident calm, a constant in the Dodgers' dizzying array of emotion. It's also apparently really cute when Mark Ellis' 6-year-old son, Briggs, imitates it while playing tee ball in the middle of his living room.

Angelenos heading to Dodger Stadium should allow for extra time and avoid the northbound 5 Freeway, officials said. Traffic on the 5 Freeway in the Elysian Valley area was stopped Saturday morning when a tanker truck overturned and caught fire at a transition road tunnel at the  interchange of the 2 and 5 freeways , the California Highway Patrol reported. The northbound lanes of the 5 Freeway are closed and the wreck will not be cleared for quite a while, said CHP Officer Ed Jacobs.
