Atlanta left-hander Tom Glavine considered it a compliment that his supposed struggles Sunday were being analyzed after the Braves' 3-0 loss to the Dodgers. Given a chance to move his team back atop the National League West--and to become the first 20-game winner in the major leagues--Glavine lasted only four innings Sunday, his shortest outing since a 3 1/3-inning stint against Cincinnati on April 19 in his second start of the season.

Jamie McCourt has asked the courts to override a legal agreement that grants "all assets of the Los Angeles Dodgers Baseball team" solely to Frank McCourt because she was "unaware of what she was signing, was unaware of what the effect would be." If she's successful, is there any chance the Dodgers can use that argument to get out of the second year of Manny's contract? Steven Smullen Torrance :: Jamie McCourt should hire Scott Boras as her agent if she wants to end up as owner of the Dodgers, get her job back -- and probably get an option year at her choice.

John Herbold was just about at the end of his rope. Four times this season his Cal State Los Angeles baseball team had been on the verge of beating Cal State Northridge, only to see the Matadors pull out a victory. Los Angeles had been beaten three times by one run--including once in the ninth inning and once in the 10th--and had also lost a two-run decision to Northridge. It was getting so frustrating for Herbold that he was thrown out of Friday's 10-inning loss to the Matadors.

The house is the work of architect John Paul Krempel.

Your May 20 editorial, "Touched By the Angels," misses the point of my legislation, AB 1041, which would require the Los Angeles Angels baseball team and other professional sports teams within the state that do not play the majority of their games in the geographic location used in their name to print a disclaimer on all their tickets, advertisements and promotional materials. The bill is meant to bring attention to the deceptive attempt by Angels' ownership to give the false impression that the team plays in Los Angeles, while at the same time helping to ensure that the Anaheim taxpayers receive their fair due. The residents of Anaheim paid millions of dollars -- through a substantial rent reduction on the Anaheim Stadium lease -- to have Anaheim prominently attached to the Angels' team name.
